The noise outside of the massage room is always troubling--had to listen to at least 3 people going to the bathroom complete with toilet flushing. Also several dogs barking outside. Not sure what can be done about it, but hard to be in the moment of the wonderfully relaxing massage with all the other noises.

The facility is really unique, clean and welcoming. It's an older house so it comes with all of the charm! The only dislike, which takes nothing away from my experience, is that it is a little chilly, but once the massage starts, your body warms right up! Sanctuary on 2nd may just be my new favorite massage parlor!

The place has a very inviting and relaxing feel to it. The building has a sense of character, unlike some other spa-settings that may feel sterile or without history. You feel instantly comfortable when you walk in, and that feeling only grows moreso the longer you're there. I would definitely come here again.

Best massage ever - I went in thinking my lower back was hurting but turns out the cause was my hips glutes and legs being tight. Alison identified and fixed the issue and this is the best I've felt in a long time. Will be back again!

I loved my massage. My mom and sister are massage therapists and ive had massages all over the US and abroad - my standards are high. The pressure was strong which i like, and technique was expert and precise. Ambiance very charming, not a generic spa feel. Brought my future sister-in-law for a bachelorette treat and our tandem massage set the tone for a perfect day of pampering.

Business response:

So glad you had a positive experience with more than one therapist. Although each therapist has their own unique style we work hard to make sure we live up to an overall standard of excellence so you are not disappointed if your favorite therapist is not available. Thank you for your kind words.

I thought it was very strange that when I went to pay I was confronted with a $2 up-charge in order to do so. As if I wasn't paying enough already to cover your nominal CC fees. I also thought that the other co-worker in your establishment should take greater steps not to be heard stomping and clanging around. Which reminds me, it was very distracting when the massage music stopped playing twice.

Business response:

I am very sorry that you were surprised by the surcharge for using a credit card. Adding a tip to a credit card is the only time you ever see a credit surcharge from us. The purpose is indeed to cover the costs involved in this transaction and to insure that the tip you intend to give your therapist is what she will ultimately get. Thank you for your feedback.

I overall enjoyed my massage at Sanctuary on 2nd. Ambiance was okay given that you could hear people walking up and down the stairs, the room wasn't isolated by a door, etc.

Business response:

Although our approach is unhurried and our atmosphere laid back, we do operate in a 150+ building in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood. The world will continue to spin around our Sanctuary but we will keep trying to make it hold off for a little while during your visit. Thank you for your feedback.

Loved the older building and all of the rooms. The ambiance was very soot him and nice.

Business response:

We feel very fortunate to have our practice located in this 150+ year old Victorian storefront. We feel we are guardians of its history and know that the widow, Martha McQuinn, who ran a hat shop in the 1880s would recognize the place if she walked in today. Preserving the look and feel of a much slower time is our intention. Thanks so much for enjoying it and taking the time to let us know.

Stairs could be better lit, a bit more privacy would have been nice

Business response:

I love the vibe inside Sanctuary on 2nd. It always feels cozy and warm and soothing.

Business response:

Thank you for your thoughtful words. We love the fact that you appreciate our atmosphere--it's short on sleek and trendy but long on warm and comforting.

Each time I walk through the front door of Sanctuary I leave the world behind; I have been finding Sanctuary there for over a decade. Truly a talented, caring, professional group of massage therapist. Sally, the owner/ heart & soul of Sanctuary, is beyond amazing personally, professional and in the community.

Business response:

And we are so grateful to have your support, trust, and the pleasure of your company for these many years. Thank you for your very kind words. It means so much to us.
