Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Uptown can be hard to park. Ramp about 2 blocks away, easy walk.

    Place is cozy and welcoming!

  • Nice building. Wish there was parking but understand. One small room in an office building.

    I ordered more packages :)

  • The space was very cozy, warm, and welcoming. The music, lighting and aromas definitely set the mood for relaxation. I couldn’t ask for a better experience.

    Love the space!

  • The building is an old historic house in Uptown converted to office space. It is very comfortable - if you want a spa this is not the place I found it tranquil and pleasant-

    Joyce is just fantastic. Catered my massage to my body. She really made me feel comfortable to ask for more/less pressure etc. She is my new favorite massage therapist!

  • Clean space but can very much hear doors opening/closing and people in other rooms in the building.

    The parking was not that great, but once inside I loved it. Joyce was very welcoming.

Bill has the makings of a great massage therapist- he is knowledgeable professional and thorough- Once he becomes more fluid and confident he will shine!

Bill was friendly and professional throughout. He led me through some questions to get a clear picture of how I was doing and where I needed some extra focus. His technique is solid and consistent. He was an excellent massage therapist and I will definitely go back again! Highly recommend.

Everything was great. The only disappointment was that my feet didn't get massaged (just my heels and achilles tendons a bit) and foot massage is my absolute favorite thing about a massage. It was surely my fault as I was a few minutes late (Bill probably just ran out of time) so next time I'll be sure to mention how much I like foot massage so he can know how to prioritize. Overall amazing experience, though!

Bill O. has given me one of the most spectacular massages I’ve had my entire life...and I have received a lot of bodywork over my 53 years. He is intuitive and strong. I have seen him several times and each time I feel renewed for several days afterwards. To know him is to also know that he is a kindhearted, warm and interesting.

Joyce is welcoming, professional and awesome at her craft. She talks through any questions both before and after. You can tell she cares a lot about her clients.

Joyce was amazing! She was so clear and communicative before the massage- I was in great hands. She actually listened and was responsive during the massage. Would 1000% recommend.

Joyce was absolutely wonderful! I had a 90 minute massage and it was the best 90 minutes I’ve had in a long time. We had a great conversation before we got started about what she would be doing, what I would like, what I wouldn’t like, she was very courteous and professional. The massage was amazing and I was in dreamland by the time we were done. I am definitely going back!

Great space! Gray Duck Massage Therapy is located in one of those cute little house-turned-business spaces in Uptown. Great location, lots of interesting shops and restaurants nearby. Lovely waiting room with lots of magazines. The massage room itself is warm and comfortable. Great ambiance, I particularly liked the music selection. I had a massage with Bill, and it was a fantastic experience. Thorough, professional and I felt much more relaxed when I left.

Loved it! I like that the studio is in a cool old house as an office building and the environment within the massage room was very welcoming. It was already set up for my arrival. Music, slightly dimmed lighting, etc. During the massage Joyce made sure to ask me if the music volume and lighting levels were to my liking. I felt very comfortable here.

I absolutely loved my experience at Gray Duck Massage with Joyce. She’s the first massage therapist to ask me questions such as what do I do for work and what do I do for exercise so she could customize my massage. It was probably one of the most relaxing massages I ever had and at the same time, she really found tight muscles and was able to get them to relax. I was very impressed and would highly recommend.

When you walk into Gray Duck Massage's building, you immediately feel at home. The building is quiet, and Gray Duck's space is well-decorated and comfortable. I immediately felt at ease. Some massages can make you feel uncomfortable. (You are, after all, striping down and lying under a blanket with a stranger nearby.) I was assured during my time that I would be properly draped and that I was in full control of what areas we focused on. It's been a long time since I've been so at ease on a first visit, and I can't wait to come back.
