Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • The staff of Sanctuary on 2nd took great care to make us feel welcome and comfortable as they walked us through the massage process. I am very pleased that a 90 minute massage means you are massaged for that full amount of time - as opposed to places that budget preparation and dressing into massage time. Fantastic spa that we will visit again!

    Best massage I had in a long time. I loved that Cait incorporated stretching into the massage. She was very friendly and professional. Great and calming atmosphere. Can’t wait to book another appointment soon!

  • Meghan is excellent and very knowledgeable! I appreciate her help to get me back to baseline.

    The studio is doing a terrific job with safety protocols. I also really love the aromatherapy options.

  • My first time back to Sanctuary in awhile. It didn't miss a beat, fantastic experience as always spanning several decades. I worked with a practitioner new to me, Meghan, and immediately booked another session. My body feels so much better today already after one session.

    Such a relaxing atmosphere and they are very conscientious about cleanliness, especially with Covid!! The building itself is so beautiful as well.

  • My entire experience was extremely satisfying. I appreciate the covid precautions as well.

    Very clean and quiet atmosphere.

  • Great experience!

    Great and welcoming environment. Very soothing as soon as you arrive. Clean and sanitary and the staff practices the utmost care.

Cait took the time to speak with me about how I was actually doing and was genuine, serene, and had a wonderful sense of awareness. She is a great listener and has incredible skill as a therapist. Every bit of my experience with her was professional, comforting, and absolutely on point. Nothing felt rushed and time was very well balanced. She is therapist I have been looking for for years. I look forward to seeing her again!

Doireann is a very attentive therapist. She took time to understand my needs, pressure preferences, as well as to explain what she felt were my problem areas of high muscle tensions. I also appreciate that she made a lovely blend of essential oils for individualized aromatherapy. She took time after the appointment to provide ways to help alleviate some of my muscle tension from home. I really appreciate Doireann's expertise and attentiveness through the whole massage and hope to return to her for future massages.

Everything! That was the best massage I had gotten in a very long time. The atmosphere was very relaxing and Kristie was amazing! She explained the entire process and asked which techniques I would prefer to ensure that I actually felt some relief in my shoulders and back. I wish they were located in New York, but I’ll be back to philly now especially to visit Kristie again!

The inside of the building is great. The music and the scenery helped put me into a melancholy state. The thing I didn't like about the building is how 'secluded' it is. Admittedly, I'm not terribly familiar with the landscape of Philadelphia but there are no obvious signs of the spa location. No sign of the company name plastered on the building or something similar to that nature. To be fair, there is a sign inside a building next to a window showcasing a deal, I believe and the address number is clear to see for anyone using GPS to track the building down.

Coming back after months away, it was a gift to get out of the house and to be given such beautiful body work in such a safe environment. The pandemic has turned the world upside down and my experience at Sanctuary and specifically with Cait felt very safe. Cait has strong hands, and great energy (and my muscles truly appreciated it).

Especially during COVID, I was very hesitant about this. But since both of us were wearing masks, and continually sanitizing, I felt comforted. Also the extra steps to make sure I was one of the only other clients in at that time, put me at ease as well. Wearing the mask was a little uncomfortable face down, but I took it as an opportunity to focus on my breathing throughout the massage. Cait was communicative and intuitive about the problem areas in my body, and I felt an immediate difference after my appointment. Sanctuary on 2nd is such a cute and tranquil place, I literally felt like I was at home.

The "Sanctuary" is not fancy...more Old World kitch. The focus seems to be on therapeutic massage rather than decoration. I also enjoyed the music played during the massage. It had a beginning, middle and end. . . much better than the usual "sounds on a loop" which make me feel like I am drowning rather than relaxing.
