Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • The ambiance is amazing and I loved w everything about it!

    Highly recommend, planning to come back soon.

  • Lovely place for a massage

    Sanctuary on 2nd is a dream come true! I still feel physically and mentally relaxed from my massage. I love that the staff has a caring, trauma-informed approach to massage. I could not recommend this place enough!

  • Sanctuary on 2nd is such a peaceful retreat. Highly recommend.

    Sanctuary on 2nd is truly a sanctuary space for massage and stress relief. Al was exceptional to work with—attentive and gently curious about my needs, and so so skilled. I’m grateful.

  • Fantastic experience! I entered downtrodden and achy and left completely rejuvenated.

    Very relaxing and restorative

  • excellent massage, great atmosphere, great music. Would never go anywhere else

    I was overall underwhelmed by the massage. It was too gentle and didn't work for me. I understand the therapist had some concerns with applying more pressure since I am 10 weeks pregnant. I've been for prenatal massages in the past, and I've not had the same feedback that the pressure needs to be light for pregnant women. Prenatal massages should not be offered in that case, because the pressure applied did not feel like a massage, but a gentle caressing.

Natalie asked about my preferred pressure / trouble areas before the massage and came up with a wonderfully scented oil based on what we have used in the past. Every time we meet Natalie has such a friendly and upbeat attitude which really put me at ease, especially during my first visit.

Samantha's excellent! I've worked with her multiple times, and even when it's months between appointments she seems to recall or have notes on what was happening last time we met, pressure preferences, areas of trouble, etc. So friendly, kind, and very good at her job!

Very knowledgeable and really took the time to get to know my focus areas and previous history - needless to say, I feel very refreshed after my massage experience!

Grace was wonderful! We had a nice discussion beforehand about areas of focus, and she spent some extra time on a nagging wrist injury. The foot focus add-on was great. Felt awesome after.

Reassuring, seeing that this was almost my first massage.Thorough, but gentle. She avoided triggering spots that might have given me pain or started a muscle spasm.
