Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Rubi is very knowledge and professional in their practice. They have been aiding a chronic issue, and the relief gives me courage in my healing journey.

    I would highly recommend Rubi. Her professionalism, and knowledge of her art were quite evident. I had my hip replaced earlier in the year and I felt like I walked better after my visit with Rubi. Will definitely use her services again

  • Excellent!

    Rubi is an elite healer. If you are financially stable enough to pay full fee, please do so--it helps subsidize BIPOC and other marginalized bodies to receive care, thanks to the way Rubi has coordinated their practice. I've had a modest handful of practitioners provide me massage; Rubi is unmatched in skill. 100/10 would recommend <-- not a typo

  • The method is different from other massages I have had in the pass, but I enjoyed it very much. Rubi is very knowledgeable about anatomy and is very good at explaining how it works. Mary

    Ruby is one of the best bodyworkers that I have used; she is helping me with old time knee and hip issues.

  • Rubi is incredible. They really understand the body and are able to provide specific massages for what my body needs. I have been recovering from an injury and cannot imagine where I would be without these massages. Highly recommend!

    Amazing wholesome holistic wonderful!

  • Helpful and targeted bodywork for the muscles around my chronic sciatic nerve issues. A true treatment, not just a relaxing massage - though I did feel more relaxed.

    The message was great! The professionalism mixed with skill was refreshing. Looking forward to my next session.

Ruby is very knowledgeable about anatomy and able to describe the work she is doing with your body in real time. She has a great sense of how much pressure to apply and is very clear in communicating the practical application of how to prevent further injuries. I experienced a combination of being both educated and given safe and healing physical relief from my acute and chronic injuries.

Rubi has expertise and great skill. After my first session, I told them they had magic hands. I leave each session relaxed with a deeper understanding of what’s going on in my body. I highly massage therapy with Rubi Sami.

Incredibly Transformative! Rubi's massages give me so much hope around healing. I usually hold tight and clenched when I'm awake and sleeping, and I awake from post-massage naps feeling like my muscles just tighten back up. My shoulders are now naturally resting openly/aligned with my ears. I'm shocked and in awe. My body hasn't been able to do this is at least 25 years. My body wants to stand tall with aligned posture and shoulders back, and this is only after my second massage with Rubi.

My sessions with Rubi are always so informative. I learn something new about how to take care of my body each time. They are also very gentle and they take the time to checking in to make sure you’re okay and not uncomfortable. I really appreciate that.

I left feeling so relieved- Rubi was so gentle with me and informed me of what she was doing and what was happening with my body while she worked. After almost two weeks of debilitating pain, and frustration at not knowing what the source of it was, I got both relief from the pain and clarity on what was going on with my body. Am definitely recommending to any of my friends who need body work.

Rubi is one of the most skilled and intuitive massage therapists I’ve received care from. They not only know anatomy, but are also consensual within the session to make sure you are relaxed and at ease. Prior to their care, I was living in a such a state of chronic pain that I wasn’t aware of it’s toll on my daily life. As a chiropractor, I’m constantly working on other people’s bodies and healing their pain- sometimes at the expense of ignoring my own pain signals. Working with Rubi has made me feel balanced in my body, almost completely decreased my pain, and able to function beyond my daily life.

Rubi is the real deal. I’ve been seeing them consistently for about 8 months and my life has changed. Rubi not only changed my relationship to pain, but also to worth. I understand now that I am worthy of living a fulfilling and peaceful life. Went I started working w Rubi I thought headaches were normal. I had accepted that I would have a headache at least twice a week. From the very first session, Rubi was able to comprehend my headaches based on tension and stiffness elsewhere in my body. Rubi made my headaches go away and helped me learn so much about myself that I couldn’t see bc I was very much blinded by the headache. Make time for yourself. Invest in your being. Schedule w Rubi!

It’s not just a massage but an educational experience. Rubi makes sure her patients know what muscles she is working on, and how to prevent further injury in the future.

Rubi is a very competent, well studied and compassionate massage practitioner. They treat me with attentiveness and care, not to mention that I always learn something new about my muscles and body every appointment! I would recommend Rubi’s services to anyone looking to heal their body through massage.

Rubi knows how to get to the spots that are painful. She is very knowledgeable about the muscles and the body systems. I just wish I could take Rubi and her "magic fingers" home with me to Oklahoma! Best massage I ever had! Rubi is a real sweetie, too! You will love her!

My massage could not have been better! It was full body but Rubi also asked me in the beginning if I had any problem areas and she worked on those areas more in depth. I get extremely sore from work, especially in my forearms, and this took away all my pain and stiffness. My forearms haven't felt this good since before I started working! Rubi is a real professional and I knew I was in good hands. I literally cannot imagine someone being unhappy with a massage from Rubi.
