Although I had to ask how to get there at the front desk because there was no clear signage in the building lobby telling me where to go, the space was well set-up and comfortable once I found it . Everyone with whom I interacted was kind and helpful, and everything was clean and professional. I felt at ease and welcomed.

Stephanie is amazing! She holds the perfect balance between listening to you and your needs and bringing in her experience and observations of your body to educate you. She literally reset my body - I find I am holding my shoulders differently and able to breathe easier. She was able to identify that my chronic knee pain is connected to tension in my hips; in one session, she used strong pressure and deep tissue techniques to work through tension there and in my shoulders. Please see her! Her work is a gift to you and your relationship with your body.

The room I was in was soothing. There was a fire alarm right after my massage that wasn't the best way to end my session but I know this wasn't exactly the fault of your center.

Front desk staff doesn't acknowledge me when I walk in for my appointment. A class was scheduled during my massage and I could hear the instructor through the door due to the design of the space.

Offer gender neutral pronoun option on waiver!

Hi! Unfortunately by booking system doesn't let me have that option but I will try to contact MassageBook to see if they will consider it for the future.

Easy to find in Center City with a really relaxing reception space. Grab some tea or water as you await the session! It's a little clunky that the bathroom is outside of the massage studio space itself and the elevator is quirky, but that is not a deal breaker.

These ladies know how to make someone feel good. My wife and I had a couples massage. My wife was looking for some serious specific muscle work, and I was there just for pleasure... and they knew how to do both. Stephanie and Amanda knew the specifics of each body part and techniques to get the job done well.

Thanks so much to Steph. The massage was so relaxing. I have never previously gotten a massage, but this definitely left me wanting more. I look forward to going to Steph in the future. I particularly carry a lot of tension in my shoulders, forearms, and calves from all of the running, weight training, and climbing I do, and this helped to relieve a lot of that tension.
