Mamapalo was very polite and professional. Could apply lighter stroke on warm-up screening. may need to practice little more on draping. Good and various skills. enjoyable in b/l LEs and feet could work on the skills on neck and back. could work on proper body work more. Enjoyed the session with her. Thank you very much.

Mamapalo Mokeyane has magical hands. This was my second visit at the clinic and I had her as my massage therapist both time. She is very skillful at what she does. Her work is always rejuvenating, to say the least.

I like that Peter used just the right amount of pressure in slow, even strokes especially in the area I mentioned to him that gave me the most trouble, my neck. I felt very relaxed and yet energized afterwards.

Nancy was wonderful. Asked lots of questions during massage. The only downside was the amount of sweat that dropped on me from her brow. That was the only thing that I was displeased with throughout the massage.

Breandan was very good. He worked out the kinks in the areas that I mentioned prior to the massage. Overall great experience.
by Vincent A on Jul 15
Breandan is truly gifted. I have been to the massage schools since 2002, and he is by far one of the best with whom I have had a massage. The main excellent characteristic is he is attentive to the person being massaged as to whether the PRESSURE is too great or too little. Thank you again Breandan and hope to see you soon.

Surely the students take more classes than just Swedish, so I don't understand why they can only offer Swedish in the clinic. The services my body really needs and wants are only available there at professional price levels. If the students are going to be doing more than Swedish when they graduate, it seems like they should be allowed to begin figuring out their individual approaches via the clinic asap.

I give this school the highest rating because of the consistent high quality of students they produce.. Yes I am prejudice. I am not a staff member but have on occasion given classes at this school. I have been in this art field for over 20 years. I have also taught at the International School of Shiatsu, Massage Arts and Sciences (under 3 or 4 different owners). So I know and have experienced different levels of skill. I encourage you to give these students a chance to practice their art. You will be pleased at the quality of character and skill.

I am thankful for the quality of bodyworkers that are being developed at the Philadelphia School of Massage. I have been an instructor in Shiatsu for approximately 20 years. (And yes, on occasion have taught at this school as well as two others.) I understand the value of bodywork. It is an effective tool in assisting to release the stressors of life. More important I understand the value of the spirit in which the techniques are applied. It has to come from the practitioners. It is something they bring to the table. This institution allows the student to learn new tools as well as incorporate their desire to assist others. I am encouraged by the quality of practitioner whose work I have personally experienced here. Enid F. Jones, Shiatsu Practitioner and Instructor

Very nice experience! I think the massage room could be decorated a bit more and given more of a peaceful vibe, but overall, I very much enjoyed my massage and the experience as a whole.

My only complaint was the lighting in the massage room was too bright. I like to close my eyes during a massage and when I opened my eyes it was a little bit jarring and required a few seconds to adjust.

Treatment begins as you enter the school due to it's environment. I know I rated everything excellent. I did this because it is. There is a seriousness in developing qualified, efficient and effective students. They are reaching their goals. Pray the school continues to develop toward this end.

She listened to what I wanted and gave me the pressure that I asked for. However it would have been nice if I had been given an option not to use oil and maybe a lotion instead, because I felt shiny afterwards with all the oil on my skin.

The massage was perfect in every way, and I also loved the warm reception when I walked through the door--made me feel like people were happy to see me. Even the rest rooms were clean and pleasant. Facilities and ambience were very nice, and the tea and water were a nice touch. I felt pampered and cared for.

The school has a welcoming atmosphere. The massage rooms are very peaceful. The staff is warm, friendly and professional. The school is a peaceful retreat in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a densely populated urban business district. What a jewel. Our city is blessed to have such an institution.
