Haiying is so good with muscles, she is like a doctor. I described the pain I felt and she knew right what was bothering me. She additionally recommended physical therapy and perhaps pilates or yoga. After showing me some stretches to help alleviate the pain and stretch out the muscles she proceeded with the massage. As with most Deep tissue massages it is not comfortable during the process and can sometimes hurt. But once you leave her office and go to sleep for the night the next day all my pain is mostly gone. I highly recommend her as she is knowledgeable, dependable, professional and knows how to pinpoint the problem

Haiying did both very deep work and a more relaxing massage. Her hands knew just where to go for the deep work, but she kept checking in with me. She is very talented!

Haiying was recommended to me by a friend. I am so happy that she did because Haiying is amazing! With her knowledge of anatomy and how everything works together, she knows how to get at the root of the problem, not just treat the symptoms. She did a very thorough assessment and spent our time discussing the underlying issues, causes of my pain. She has tremendous manual skills and I could feel many areas releasing as she worked on me. I highly recommend Haiying and I have already booked my next appointment with her.

For my first visit, Elya Rowe customized the session to my particular needs. She was kind, calm, reassuring, and very intuitive, putting me at ease. Combined with this high level of service, she provided a stellar massage that gave resonance to their name -- Amherst Healing Arts. Her goal is truly to heal and not just simply to give you a massage to make you feel better for a just a few hours. Instead, she and the rest of her team seem very committed to heal your specific ailments for the long term.

The room was fine. I was little uncomfortable undressing & dressing in front of the parking lot. I was happy not to hear any of the cars coming and going.

Business response:

Thank you, so much for your awesome feedback. We are so thrilled at Amherst Healing Arts to have recently expanded and are in the process of putting the finishing touches on this second massage therapy room. The existing drapery was particularly chosen because it provides privacy while allowing for a gently sunlight room. Nonetheless, as the cooler months are approaching, we have plans for adding soft cotton roman shades, too, for warmth and comfort.

Very calming environment; beautiful, clean, space. Elya is extremely professional, always asking if her technique is working for the client. She also offers advise re: health issues, if one asks. Her messages have had a positive effect on my well-being.

I was shaken by that auto accident and I had a bad cold. After the massage, I could breathe better, My body had let go of the stress of the accident and I felt better. The following day when I woke, my cold was resolving itself. I was a bit under the weather from the auto caused trauma as well as my now resolving viral infection. Sunday was a brighter new day. Thank you Elya. Kathy

Sweet lavender smell, relaxing sound of the water dripping from the fish tank and the warmth from the bed, the environment is as healing as massage itself.

I really enjoy the whole experience. I have had many massages around the USA. I always leave AMA feeling great and a "lost bit of time" that seemed a lot shorter than the time I was there. I would highly recommend this for anyone, if only to reduce stress or as a gift to yourself. :)

This was an outstanding massage treatment. My massage felt uniquely attentive to my body and its vulnerabilities. It conveyed caring, clear and excellently pressured attention - and felt in depth and wonderfully supportive to my muscular uncertainties, discomforts - and my spirit! The ambiance is relaxing and kind and beautiful, and the practitioner highly skilled, incorporating excellent reflexology into the overall treatment. I am really pleased to have been directed to this practice.

The space is quiet, comfortable and cozy. There is lovely music, fish tank that bubbles soothingly (for fish too I hope) , candles burning, etc. Also, there is a water cooler, Kleenex, and other necessary items within arms reach. There is a clean bathroom adjacent to the massage room. There is ample parking. Karen allows plenty of time for your appointment, and you never feel rushed. She is extremely knowledgeable about massage and the body in general.

I liked everything about the massage. It's a small point but the bathroom is so bare and ugly. It's a land lord issue, but it doesn't match the quality of the service offered.
