Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • The new space is so nice!

    The new location is pretty formal.

  • I didn’t pick you for the ambiance so didn’t bother me that you’re still settling in to a new office.

    Friendly, relaxed, clean. Not fancy, but a warm environment and the massage bed was heated perfectly. Accommodated my music choice.

  • This was an amazing sports massage, it is very much worth it if you have stiffness or just need to have your muscles-tendons loosened up from chronic use.

    Made extra effort to fit an appointment in for me day-of.

  • Happily booked an immediate appointment for me, with little notice. I was very thankful, and will return.

    My knee feels drastically better. I deeply appreciate the attention and care to that area.

  • excited to see the new space Alex is moving to

    Excellent massage!

Alex did a great job. He was very efficient and conscientious throughout the massage. It became immediately clear 5 minutes in that he really understands the muscular system and what are the areas of the body need the most work based on the client's sport of choice.

This is my third massage here, and Alex really makes a huge difference! He is very knowledgeable and his use of hot stones and coconut oil, muscle engagement techniques, and deep tissue massage work wonders! If you're an athlete that wants to perform at 100%, or are suffering from joint pain due to tight muscles, go see him!

It was my first massage with Rubi. My massage consisted of a lot of trigger point which I'm a big fan of. She was good about asking if the pressure she was applying was ok. Everytime I asked what area she was working on she was happy to give a detailed explanation of what muscles/bones she was treating and how it's functionally used on a daily basis. I would definitely go back to Rubi.

BREAKTHROUGH. Rubi's been working out my posterior chain issues over several sessions (10-ish 90s and 120s) and last night all the hard work produced some results. My hips opened in the bottom of my squat. I got some external rotation in my femurs. My pelvis felt "mobile". I'm not sure I'll hold on to the hard-earned looseness until our next session, but I'm reassured to have experienced real results as we continue working through the layers.

Rubi was fantastic!!!! Best massage I’ve had throughout this pregnancy!
by Jamie on Nov 17
Rubi has a real gift, both in their massage technique and in creating a personal connection to their client. I was fascinated by their both knowledge and skill and fell into a deep state of relaxation. Haven't slept so well in ages after their miraculous massage. Thank you, Rubi!
by Matthew on Oct 08
Great experience with Rubi. So helpful at describing the problems found, and explaining what caused the pains. Feeling much better, and will go back!

I got a massage for my girlfriend as a present, she said Alex was very friendly and the massage was very effective, she had a ton of stress in her back and arms and she feels much better! I picked this place based on a recommendation from a friend, and I'd certainly pass that recommendation on.

Alex is a powerful bodyworker. As a bodyworker myself with 12 years of experience I am fairly picky and truly only want the highest caliber of expertise. Alex knows his stuff and provided a deep tissue experience extraordinaire. I highly recommend him.

Alex was prepared and waiting for me when I arrived early, and we got started before my official appointment time. Alex listened thoughtfully to my description of ailments (back trouble) and then went to work. During the process he providing very clear instructions regarding the interactive parts of the massage (holding slight resistance and then relaxing on cue). I felt immediate relief after the massage, and one week later I'm still feeling the benefits of the session.

I went to see Alex with lower back pain after injury while performing squats. I shared my problem area with Alex and he spent a good amount of time working on my back. I received a full body massage and I must say that it hurt but my body immediately felt better once the massage was over. I will definitely be going back to Alex and will happily recommend his services to anyone!

While the entrance is could be better labeled (specifically the door, the signs leading to the door were fine), the area inside was very nice and open.

Thanks for the feedback. I've added some more signs to make it easier for people.

Most deep tissue massages say they're "deep tissue" but they never get as deep into the tissue as I need for my active lifestyle. Alex did a great job doing exactly what I needed! My muscles always are knotted and tight from lifting and Crossfit and I felt so much better after I left. Will def go back!
