Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great service!

    Easy to find in Center City with a really relaxing reception space. Grab some tea or water as you await the session! It's a little clunky that the bathroom is outside of the massage studio space itself and the elevator is quirky, but that is not a deal breaker.

  • Stephanie has a great touch and knows what she is doing. Great job, thanks!

    These ladies know how to make someone feel good. My wife and I had a couples massage. My wife was looking for some serious specific muscle work, and I was there just for pleasure... and they knew how to do both. Stephanie and Amanda knew the specifics of each body part and techniques to get the job done well.

  • Loved all of it, from the pressure and touch and care, to the music and temperature. Thank you!

    Stephanie is amazing! I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a skillful, deep tissue massage.

  • Thanks so much to Steph. The massage was so relaxing. I have never previously gotten a massage, but this definitely left me wanting more. I look forward to going to Steph in the future. I particularly carry a lot of tension in my shoulders, forearms, and calves from all of the running, weight training, and climbing I do, and this helped to relieve a lot of that tension.

Amazing masseuse!
by Ashley on Jun 05
This is the first time I have felt so hype that I have recommended a massage therapist to my friends, especially those who value someone with language that makes space for queer folks. Massage is such a powerful tool but there can be so many obstacles to finding a relaxing space and skilled therapist. Stephanie creates a welcoming environment with her questions and check-ins throughout the session. My shoulders are eternally grateful for her work.

Stephanie is great and highly skilled, with a heavy hand but a light touch when needed :)

She walked me through my first cupping experience and I felt like it was totally worth while.
by Shannon on Nov 29
Stephanie was able to release the tension in my neck shoulders and feet and knew exactly when and where to work a spot a little deeper.

Jae is personable, plays unexpectedly good massage music, highly skilled, flexible, and attuned.
by L’Oréal on Aug 15
Jae is amazing! I felt like I was walking on air for the whole day. Can’t wait to return.

Incredible. Incredible. Incredible.
by Enid on Feb 11
Personally spoke to Jae after treatment. She has effective tools. Her treatment was in the beginning slow paced as she worked and allow the body to settle and the breath to open. Then the serious work began when she worked on my back. She released tightness in shoulders very effectively. She also informed me of the next area of challenge -- tightness in hips. The treatment was relaxing. The treatment with deep and effective. Thank you.

Jae was awesome! My shoulders and back definitely feel better.
