REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

by Anonymous on Aug 04
Andrew seemed very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, I wanted a deep, firm very deep tissue massage, and it was not deep enough and didn't offer much relief.

I was not happy and I will leave it at that!

Andrew always understands what my needs are and explains very clearly the issues that my body faces and what is needed for recovery. I am always impressed with his knowledge and the outcome.

The massage I received decreased the pain in my arms and hands by 75 percent. It has made a significant impact on my ability to get a good nights sleep.

I probably will not do the cupping again but enjoyed the rest of the experience. I will be back again.

First massage from a man. I was completely comfortable and Andrew was professional and kind. I already booked my next appointment. He was amazing. Felt like a million bucks when I left. What a gem of a place. Bravo Andrew.

Amazing treatment!

Andrew caters to my messaging needs as I instructed him to focus on a certain area. He requested that I let him know if the pressure is not right. I was grateful that he was available on such short notice because the pain in my neck/lower back was intolerable. I would definitely go back!
