REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Acupuncture services

by Ivette on Jun 23
Albert was great at explaining the techniques he was using and how they will help relive the tension I have. He is very professional and asked the right questions to understand my needs. Can’t wait to go back.

Albert was very thorough and professional. He took time to listen to my concerns prior to my massage. During the massage, he constantly checked on me to see if the pressure was good, if I was comfortable and to ask about certain areas. He made me feel that he was in tune with my "wellness." The ambiance was a little sterile and small without the "bells and whistles" of the artwork, incense and cosmetic influences one usually finds at a spa. However, the cosmetics of the office do not make a good massage. Albert was excellent and focused on my areas of need. I will definitely be seeing him again and I highly recommend him for everyone.

The massage was good. The explanation as to why my knee was tight made sense. It’s good to be able to know why you were in pain and how it can be relieved.

Albert is the best. He cares how you feel before and after each session.

A wonderful first experience having a full hour massage with Albert. He targeted my many areas of concern and helped to relax me through some intense deep tissue work. By far the best massage I've found in New York. A lesson learned that it's worth avoiding salon massages or even the cheap Chinese massages that don't facilitate specific issues of tension and pain, but rather spend the time and invest in a knowledgeable masseuse. The day after my session with Albert is a strong tell of how well versed he is in relaxing my long term tension, sciatica, and back pain. Thank you!!

Albert always keeps me well informed, asks the right questions and is professional to the core. He gives me tips on simple things that I would overlook that help with i.e. spinal alignment, low back pain etc. Highly recommend.
