Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • John is a skilled massage therapist and I immediately felt comfortable under his care. His techniques along with intuitive guidance left me throughly relaxed and relieved of stress. - Carla

    John has wonderfully strong and caring hands. His pressure was perfect and his massage made me so relaxed that I actually fell asleep for a few minutes! He was especially good on the back. What I appreciated most of all was that he took extra time on my sore hips and even created a new "move" that helped release the chronic soreness that I had been experiencing for several weeks. I highly recommend him.

  • Felt like a million bucks when I left. I will be back again for sure. Thank you John!!!!

    I love John! His techniques are amazing. He is very aware of you, your body, and making you very comfortable. I already booked him again and looking forward to it!

  • The studio was amazing and immaculate, John listens to what you need and definitely knows how to address your problem areas and concerns. I found salamba with a quick Google search and I'm so glad I was able to get in. I hope to get back for another session soon!

    As always a very good message. I went in with gardening pains & walked out with a smile. John is very good at what he does & I always feel cared for in a very professional manner. Thanks, John

  • Great attention to my problem areas (tense shoulders).

    Very good massage , I will be back . Thanks John

  • Salamba is a beautiful experience with skilled therapeutic techniques,. John has trained well and offers exceptional massages. A generous person and an excellent listener to one's needs, he provides true relief from what what ails you! A beneficial way to give yourself the gift of healing! Your body will thank you!

    John's professionalism and explanation of next steps is very good so there are no surprises. I've recently relocated to the area and after giving up my past masseuse of 4 years was worried I wouldn't find one as good. My worries were dissipated when I went to Salamba. I would recommend John to anyone looking for a relaxing and great massage.
