Angela is amazing!!!!!! I came in on a Friday with terrible tension and upper back pain from a long week and sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time. Once she was done there was no more tension in my neck or back. She knows the right pressure and where to focus. I will definitely be back!!!!!! She's also such a very nice and sweet person.

While there are many people who get certified as a masseuse, Angela truly has a gift. She has an intuition on what parts of your body need more or less attention or pressure. To add exemplary customer service skills along with talent, Angela has a wonderful, cheerful disposition & greeted me by name upon my arrival. Over the last year I tend to get a massage once a month and bounce around from spot to spot because I was never truly thrilled with the service. But I will definitely be back.

AMAZING!! I have been getting massages in the VA Beach area for over 10 years so I know massages. Moving here 5 years ago I had difficulty finding the quality massage I was accustomed to. I have had over 8 massages in the area but never found the quality I was seeking, I planned special trips and actually drove 3 hours just to get my massage, and while at least 2 places here were comparable to what I was accustomed to it was Back 2 Balance in Beltsville that finally gave me the absolute BEST Massage I have ever had in my life. Everything was so serene, private, and comfortable. The room was crisp with clean aromatic smells and the sound was exactly what I needed to just get away from the daily stress. Every muscle from my head to my toes was completely worked through. Today I sit in my office with no tension, sharp minded and ready for my day. Angela is a true professional that has found her calling.

I'm a bodybuilder and I have some faults and she lets me know that one of my faults is not stretching! I appreciate the abundance of knowledge Angella has, and she makes me aware of how I can help myself by stretching. I think I just prefer to get a great massage and take the scolding...lol.
