Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • 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.

    Relaxing setting and inviting physical space for a massage - as usual.

  • Jeannille was great. She made sure I was super comfortable through out. I’ll be back!

    Parking is a little difficult, but other than that nice, clean, serene, boho spa.

  • Such a relaxing and ambient experience, topped our weekend. Thank you for the kindness, attention and professionalism. We will be back.

    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.

  • I liked that the staff really seemed interested in making sure they discussed areas of concern, areas that needed more/less focus, even down to the scent of the oils. Throughout the massage they checked in to see how the pressure/oils/overall experience was going for the client. They did a great job!

    Kelly was an awesome massage therapist, physically intuitive and really found all the knots in my back. I’m a muralist and my back was super tight from a recent installation and Kelly really helped me out. She was very receptive of my needs and would definitely recommend going to her!

  • I the environment was really special.

    Great place i'll be back!

Cait was beyond professional and took the time to listen to what was going on with my body. She was communicative throughout the message, but not too talkative, which I really appreciated. Her kind demeanor and consensual professionalism, was refreshing and calming. She is by far one of the best massage therapists I have ever had.
by Natalie on Jul 11
Cait is highly skilled in her work and presence of care.
by Anonymous on Mar 14
She really spent time with her clients to assess any and all needs.
by An on Feb 27
Cait was very responsive to my requests and picked up on my awkward positioning that I didn’t notice. We adjusted and made the rest of the experience even better than it was already. I’m really looking forward to making another appointment soon!
by Gina on Feb 26
Cait listened to me and my needs. I was beyond impressed and can't wait to go back to Sanctuary on 2nd. This place really cares about their customers and it really shows.
by Andrew on Feb 26
This was my first massage in many years. I was a little nervous. Cait asked the usual questions before we started and I feel like she was carefully listening to understand my needs. She made me feel very comfortable and her therapeutic massage was outstanding. One day later, I still feel refreshed and am looking forward to a follow up experience!

Nasrene is a very empathetic healer. They checked in before we began about my preferences and level of comfort which made me feel more at ease. They are intuitive in searching out areas of tension and helping ease tension in muscle groups and used techniques that were very effective in helping me work through some residual pain and stiffness from an injury. Our appointment was a very positive and relaxing experience and I felt very safe and well-cared for in Nasrene’s hands. My body still feels amazing!

I just didn’t appreciate that she asked about leaving a tip.(when I did leave a tip) Tips are optional not mandatory and she took my payment as soon as I was done and i was the 1st in a group of five. Not sure if she thought I was going to run off without paying. Otherwise skill ambiance it was a great massage excellent experience highly recommend
