Warm and kind, great massage
by John on Feb 14
Asked what areas I thought needed the most work and focused on those areas bringing much relief by the end of the session.
by Jeanie on Feb 11
I like a lot of pressure and she was able to adjust accordingly and really loosened up my problem areas.
by David on Feb 10
Cait is very knowledgeable (which helps because I'm not in this sphere). Best massage I've ever had. My posture already is improving. I'll def be back (hopefully consistently).

Cait does a great job asking what's needed and addressing specific requests. Very professional, warm, and does a really good job!
by Andi on Jan 23
Cait really listened to my issues prior to the massage and did a fabulous job addressing them considering it had been quite awhile since my last massage. I will definitely book with her again.

One of the best massages ever. I slept well for the first time in moths. I have very complicated orthopedics issue, and have had may massages. This ranks at the top.

Krystal is a talented massage therapist. would definitely recommend her! I’ve already booked my next massage with her.

I really appreciated the time that Krystal took before and after my massage to check in with me on what I needed and how I was feeling. her technique was wonderful and I would happily do another 90 minute massage again.

Made the experience relaxing. Krystal was extremely calming and professional. Would definitely work with her again!
by Alexa on Mar 01
Krystal is by far my favorite massage therapist! She listened to all my concerns and helped me with everything I didn't even know was bothering me! She is extremely good at what she does and made me feel great the whole time. She will be who I request from now on. I feel amazing!
by Christopher on Feb 23
Krystal is great. She has a very friendly demeanor and keeps you relaxed the entire time. She applies just the right amount of pressure and never fails to work out your problem areas. Definitely book a massage with her!

Kristie made me feel really comfortable and verbally checked in with me throughout the session. She was great and would highly recommend.

Meghan is incredible! I felt safe, relaxed, and well taken care of throughout the whole experience.
by Joseph on Apr 13
Meghan's adaptability and professionalism was welcoming AND critical to help me and my messed up back. I couldn't lay on the table in a normal way without pain, but she accommodated my needs and by the end of the session I was able feel like a normal human being again. Thank you!
by Taj on Apr 12
Meghan created a positive and soothing environment and was a very strong communicator. I appreciate the entire experience; I'm so glad I chose to come here for prenatal massage! Thank you so much.

Megan is an incredibly thoughtful massage therapist. She makes you feel safe, comfortable and truly relaxed. The best massage experience I've ever had.
by Noel on Apr 07
Meghan is very skilled, engaged, responsive and collaborative. Meghan builds a space that is comfortable, open, and honestly a sanctuary away challenges that you face, and makes it easier to step out the door with good posture and a sunnier outlook. I can't wait to go back.
by Anonymous on Apr 07
From the moment we walked in, Meghan was warm and welcoming! I appreciated taking the time to talk over our "game plan" based on areas I identified, and I felt more confident getting a massage having a clear idea of what she was planning to do. The massage itself was outstanding- pretty sure she's magic.
by Taryn on Mar 29
Meghan was so attentive and I really felt that I got the massage experience that I was looking for. 10/10.
by Sarah on Mar 23
I booked a massage for my partner as a gift and they came home with rave reviews! They told me I should book a massage with Meghan ASAP :)
by Kathryn on Mar 15
Great communication and expertise, thanks for a wonderful relaxing massage Meghan!

Wren has such a good understanding of anatomy and was able to figure out what areas needed more attention and work. She was able to provide me with some stretches to do to help my problem areas after my session. She was very professional, kind, welcoming, and made me relaxed!

Wren made me feel completely at ease! I was particularly impressed that certain tensions in my body noticed and added to my file for any future appointments. Wren is incredibly skilled and made my first massage experience one that I would love to repeat!

by Daniel on Apr 17
Natalie was fantastic. She asked me about my work, lifestyle, and problem areas and then performed an amazing massage to address them. Would recommend the experience.
by Madison on Mar 28
My boyfriend & I had a weekend visit to Philly - I surprised him with a massage for his birthday. Let me just say that Natalie & Wren were out of this world. They were super sweet, really paid attention to our bodies, and our overall goal of the massage. I was sleep 15 minutes into it, when I woke I felt brand new, stress free & super relaxed. My boyfriend loved Wren & he said she worked all his areas that he pointed out to her. They will definitely be my first stop when we visit Philly again.

Natalie is great. She's great at figuring out root issues and how tightness in some muscles can impact other anatomically distant parts.

Natalie did a great job. Before the massage we talked about the pain I've been experiencing and she was very validating. She gave me options for our session and provided insight on ways to manage shoulder pain.

Lovely space! I'll be returning ASAP! Very professional, polite, clean, transparent (about policies and Covid-protocol) and soothing. I love how eclectic the space is and the heated massage beds were a lovely touch.
