Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • A place to check out!

    I would tell my friends to promote this kind of healing for their teens and kids! I wish we would of sooner! The place is magical. Go enjoy the grounds while you wait or after your session!

  • The staff are professional, welcoming and lovely … and the atmosphere is other-worldly in the best sense - like stepping out of all the real time hub-bub. The brochure and photo’s on line are much ‘glossier, high end’ looking, whereas the experience is a little more ‘funky’. Very cool place overall.

    This is a great place for yoga, massage and to disconnect from the world outside and enjoy the beautiful grounds. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

  • Beautiful location

    I had a wonderful massage by Amanda yesterday, I highly recommend her. It was probably the best massage I have ever had and I left there feeling fantastic!! Thanks so much Amanda you are a professional, very knowledgeable and kind!!

  • Excellent place and professional massage reiki therapist

    Great craniosacral therapy

  • David was great, he really cared about my areas of concern and my comfort throughout my appointment.

    Excellent massage, the warm oil was very grounding and calming. The treatment was everything I expected it to be and more! I highly recommend this massage.

David did a careful assessment of my doshas, based on a customized questionnaire, which I appreciated. He was also very responsive to my questions about local Ayurveda resources. The space was clean and comfortable, I felt in good hands.

David takes the time to get to know you and your needs. He is very knowledgeable, does not rush and creates a warm atmosphere.

My massage was beyond amazing!! David was definitely one of the most knowledgable therapist I have ever had. He did an amazing job at addressing my problem area and the ongoing headache is gone. Will be back soon :)

David is an amazingly talented masseuse. I work way too many hours and my shoulders are solid knots and I suffer from migraines. He worked all of the knots out and offered to show me some yoga workouts that would relieve my migraines. I feel truly fortunate and blessed to have found him. I'm on a wellness path now that I am most grateful for. I have had fantastic massages for 25 years but this was the best I've ever experienced. He is truly multi talented.

Amanda was absolutely the best! Not only was she able to recommend what I needed based on what I shared with her, but she also went above and beyond to make me feel amazing. I’m booking another appointment with her immediately!
by CARRIE on May 21
You did a wonderful job noticing my daughter being very anxious for her first ever massage. She has terrible anxiety and social anxiety so for her to go through this process did cause some extra prior. You went above and beyond to help ease and guide her through the process. She came home very pleased! Thank you so much!
by Karen on Mar 31
Took her time to work on my problem area, her work on on my back, arms, or legs was appreciated as well. Didn’t leave out my hands or feet either…

Let me tell you ..... I have had fabulous massages in 5 star spas all over the caribbean and none could have topped this massage. David was by far the most talented, most knowledgeable and professional masseuse I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. I will be there at least once a month from now on! I left feeling 1000% rejuvenated that I went to my office and rewrote my client presentation. Thank you David.

I have had many massages over the past 20 years and I must admit that I was leery about a male masseuse. David put my mind at ease right away. He is professional, knowledgeable, and has a kind and vibrant spirit. I'll be going back once a month.
