Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I really liked the massage. It was so good and I loved all of it. Essential oils and hot towels made it even better and I felt really taken care of.

    Took me a little while to find the stairs and then see the waiting area, which is small. I was looking for Gab's name on a door, which isn't there, so I got confused briefly.

  • Kate clearly cares very much about providing the best possible massage experience. Felt very listened to and cared for. Will definitely come again.

    Gab is very thorough and thoughtful with a person’s medical history, and had helpful advice for stretching and exercise techniques to try at home.

  • Everything about the space is well thought out, beautiful, and conducive to a sense of healing and calm. It's nice to find such an oasis right in the heart of Ithaca.

    Best place for a massage in Ithaca. Gab really tries to understand what's going on with you. He got at three or four major issues for me, including back, hips and knees. When I got off the table, I felt as though my balance had been restored and I was light on my feet. Terrific professional.

  • The building is convenient and well maintained. They occupied a room within it, and I don't recall ever hearing another person in any of the halls/stairs/rooms. If there were other people present, they were very respectful of the quite healing space. The room was comfortable and I had no trouble relaxing. I will return With gratitude Adrienne

    Wonderful. Deep pressure where it was needed and fluid movements. Left feeling so much better than how I walked in. Have already made another appointment to return.

  • Wonderful experience, GAbriel is attentive, professional, and very experienced. Great ambiance and very relaxing ! Highly recommended !

    The new office is very nice, calming and quiet.

Not only does Gab have excellent skills, he seems to be very intuitive, generous with his time, and genuinely concerned as shown by a follow-up text.
by Uriel on Mar 15
Gabriel's ability to listen and address my specific needs was excellent. I really felt there was nothing more important to him than supporting my healing. Immense gratitude.

The space is calm and perfect for a small practice. Parking was easy on the weekend and I liked the online booking option.
by Martha on Nov 17
Kate created a relaxing and trusting atmosphere. She asked good questions about my condition and checked in with my comfort during the massage. She seems like a masterful masseuse. She concentrated on the areas of need as well as the rest of my body. I felt uplifted at the end. Thanks Kate!
by Susie on Aug 03
I have been seeing kate for many years, I met her at the Finger lakes School of Massage. she is very professional and really listens to what your asking for.susie
by Sadie on Jul 30
Thai Massage with Kate is a mind- and body-opening experience that falls in a sweet zone that triangulates somewhere between massage, yoga, and Shiatsu. Kate's pressure is spot-on, her strength and endurance is impressive, and her conscientious, compassionate care lets me feel completely at ease. I emerge out of a Thai Massage session feeling totally relaxed, highly aware of my body, and more fluid in my movement. Thank you, Kate!
by Julie on Jul 16
Felt very comfortable with the therapist.
by Lance on Jun 21
I have been a client of Kate's for a couple of years. I consistently get a great massage. Each session is different depending on my current aches and pains. Kate is always a student of massage, and is already more knowledgeable than any therapist I have ever had. She is also communicative and flexible when it comes to scheduling. Simply put, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone looking for all the wonderful things a professional massage therapy session (or two, or three...) has to offer.
