Albert is one of the best massage therapists I've ever had. He's very knowledgeable, personable, and professional. He takes the time to ask important questions about the client's well being and explains the steps he's taking in your care along the way.

I've had many massages from the Bronx Wellness Center as well as other places and this was the best of them all. I was hesitant to come here because I've had a bad experience here in the past. Albert does an excellent job explaining what will be done while still maintaining a perfect ambiance in the room. He answered my questions and is very knowledgeable about his job. He deserves a raise!!! Thank you Albert and Bronx Wellness Center..... as long as Albert is there I plan to be one of his loyal customers.

I entered the massage room with a head congestion& feeling so uncomfortable and after the massage Albert applied my headache was gone. I felt so much better that I want to make a follow up appointment with him but he is so booked???? thank you

Overall assessment and recommended treatment very good. Although for the time spent. I realized I needed other areas of my body need therapy. It was extremely relaxing. I recommend few friends, too pricey they say.
