Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Monnique has a true gift I have lived with chronic pain and various other health issues for over a decade. In that time, I can count on one hand the number of days I didn’t have pain. During our session I was aware of everything that was going on, the ambience of the space was magical, the body work that was done released years of tension, eased the pain of my nerve damage, and allowed me to sleep deeply for the first time in YEARS. I’m so happy to be able to work through my unseen health issues with someone who is knowledgeable about the human body, the mind body connection, how your body internalizes emotions, and healing. THANK YOU MONNIQUE FOR THE LOVE YOU PUT INTO YOUR WORK AND CLIENTS!

I’ve been living with chronic pain for over a decade, my mobility and mental health have been deeply affected by it. After seeing Monnique I wore hell’s for the first time in years WITHOUT PAIN. I was able to walk up and down my stairs WITHOUT PAIN! I’ll definitely be back to continue this work.

AMAZING
by Chris on Apr 27
Being new to some of her techniques and practice, Mo was very helpful in explaining and giving background on what she was doing and why.
by Bree on Apr 18
Monnique explained what benefits cupping has on the body, what to do during the session to get more out of it, and how to care for your body after you've had your session. She made me feel comfortable and always asked if I was okay while she placed the cups on my body. She knew what areas to focus on that needed a little more TLC and I left feeling looser and lighter than I have in a while.

Ms. Gross is a kind, compassionate, and respectful therapist who cares deeply for her clients and their well-being, not just their money. Would recommend highly. She is well versed in multiple styles of massages as well. A “jack of all trades” massage therapist that ranges from deep tissue, thai, to energy work like reiki. She can do it all. Again, highly recommend.

Ben is a great conversationalist - Able to work and talk at the same time! Usually when I get a massage I like complete quiet, but since Ben is a friend its a good time to catch up! I am impressed with his ability to multi task, and create an overall pleasant experience!! Will be back in a month
by Jerrica on Feb 01
Ben takes into account my needs and adjusts the session based on feedback and intuition. I always leave feeling lighter and relieved.

Been seeing Ben for over a year and recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent deep tissue massage. Is continually learning new things to improve his skills and brings multiple techniques into our sessions to enhance the benefits of regular massage therapy.
by Anonymous on Dec 11
Excellent deep tissue massage. Has a knack for finding all of the knots in my body, and is always careful not to pop over them too uncomfortably.
by Elaine on Dec 06
Super personalized services and techniques that really address the issues related to pain and tension relief.
by Elaine on Dec 06
Really relaxing service and a great way to introduce some basking-in-the-sun energy during the cold weather.
by Elaine on Dec 06
Ben also gives great advice and offers new products to use during massages and uses new techniques to address specific needs. I’ve been going to Ben for over a year now and I highly recommend his work!

There is an understanding of personalized needs and underlying issues that can contribute to body aches, pains, and stiffness. It is more than a spa experience, but is also a wellness and healing experience, as the name implies.
