Alison consistently provides a great experience.
by Anonymous on Jul 09
The space was nice and private and Alison was extremely professional before the massage in explaining what would be happening as well as during the massage.
by mark on Jun 26
She was amazing. 10/10. Not sure I want to recommend her, only because then her schedule will fill up and I won't be able to book again!

Very soothing treatment.
by Jessica on Jun 04
Alison was super welcoming and sweet in such an authentic way! I went in with my boyfriend for the Couple's Massage which was our first time getting a massage. Anyways, from the little chit chats to explanations and to how Alison receives feedback, she was wonderful. It was great and completely natural of how she switched from general conversations to explaining/teaching and to when it's quiet because I'm just lost in the massage (wasn't an awkward silence thing). I tried my best to tell her things/parts that I enjoyed and I'll be honest, sometimes I'll just be too relaxed and enjoying it and lose the chance and when there's things that I can't handle I definitely told her and accommodated to me well. Fortunately, I did get a chance to tell her why at times I didn't tell her (such as beginning of the massage) which was because I wasn't sure if that's how the massage should be since this is my first time and she informed me and reassured me after. And she did tell me before the massage to let her know if I'm enjoying anything or disliking anything and she always said "thank you" after I let her know!
by Kristin on May 16
Thank you, Alison for such an amazing experience at Sanctuary on 2nd. If you are looking to get rid of those unwanted knots, Alison is the person to visit. She was extremely intuitive and focused on the areas I requested, as well as thoroughly treating the rest of my body. I will definitely be going back!

She managed to get out knots that have been too stubborn to leave my shoulders for 10 years, while still making it an extremely relaxing massage.

Stephanie was awesome - personable, thorough, and mindful of both an injury and daily routine of working on my computer. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be back for more routine maintenance : )
by Michael on May 14
This was my first time at Sanctuary, and Stephanie was wonderful. Very professional, attentive, let me lead in terms of how much conversation, and she was able to identify areas that needed work that I didn't even realize until she started working them. I will absolutely go back to her again, and recommend her highly.
by Jackie on May 12
Stephanie concentrated on the areas I was having issues with and really helped release a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders.
by Jackie on May 12
I loved the hot towels!
by Daniel on May 08
Stephanie did an excellent job paying attention to the areas that needed attention including areas I didn't even know required help. She quickly figured out a variety of problems I had in my back and adeptly addressed them. I like a lot of pressure and she was able to oblige. I'll definitely be back soon!
by Jeremy on May 01
My 1st time with Stephanie and she was awesome. She didn't rush at all, was very attentive to the parts of my body I mentioned needed attention, and provided an overall awesome experience. Thanks!
by Anonymous on Apr 23
Stephanie was great! She worked out some problem areas with good pressure, and didn't hesitate to ask if anything was painful. Woke up the next day with a little soreness, but in a good way! My boyfriend and I agree that this was one of the best massages we've ever gotten.
