Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I feel refreshed simply stepping through the front door at Genesis. The ambiance is soothing, and the facilities are impeccably clean.

    My experience was very relaxing.

  • Great service

    Very different from a traditional deep tissue massage. More analysis of mechanics and stretching mixed with lighter massage. Very effective. Highly recommended.

  • Rick finds your problem area and then sticks with it until it is resolved. He does not follow a script like some places. He tries to sort out the mechanical cause of the problem.

    Clean and calming.

  • Came in with sciatica issues and now almost 100% relief.

    Clean, professional, caring

  • Lovely place, clean, comfortable and relaxing.

    Great massage as always! The absolute best place for a massage with two of the most amazing massage therapist.

Iliana really took care of me. I was having difficulty walking due to lower back pain. She assessed the problem and went to work. I feel so much better and can walk normally again without pain. Thanks Iliana.

Rick is a true professional. He was a careful listener when I described my issues, but he also intuitively performed a thorough massage and noted possible other problems, or origins of problems that I had simply not considered. Wonderful!

I tried Genesis for a special introductory rate, but I will definitely go back! The room was so relaxing and well-appointed, the music was soft and well-chosen, and I could tell special care was taken to make the ambiance relaxing and nice. I loved the little bench right under the head bar, that allowed my hands to rest! I have never seen one of those, and it was very comfortable. Overall, great experience.
