  • The studio was very clean, nice layout. What staff I interacted with was very professional and friendly.

    Chairs were comfy, it was quiet and calming, a peaceful place.

I am so relaxed after,my session with Julia, she makes me feel comfortable, listens to my needs, and I am totally zoned out,in 5 mins of her laying her hands on me. Plus, I love the rosemary blend used, it really helps with my asthma.

Guillermo is a skilled and professional massage therapist, very kind and intuitive. I have a job that requires me to sit for hours at a time and my regular appointments with him have helped my lower back pain immensely!
by Alaina on Aug 23
I have been seeing Guillermo for six months. I am impressed by his knowledge, professionalism, and most importantly, his ability to address my physical pain effectively. My mom is a massage therapist, and I have been searching for over a decade for someone as good as her. Guillermo clearly loves his work, and makes his clients feel welcome and cared for. I love the Thai massage for my chronic pain and old injuries, and the abdominal massage really helped when I was having stomach issues. I can't recommend Guillermo enough!

The facilities are in the basement of an old building. It looks a little dingy, and there was an unpleasant smell of chlorine or other detergent right outside of the elevator. That said, the people who greeted me were incredibly pleasant and warm.

I had a massage with a student, Patty Giron, this past weekend at PSMB. She listened to my concerns and really tailored the massage to my needs. She was super receptive to my feedback during the massage, but didn't try to engage me in unnecessary conversation during the service. I was able to really relax and I left feeling 100% more refreshed than when I went in. I gave ambiance a score of "okay" because it is a school - not a spa. The room left a little to be desired, aesthetically. And there was a class going on in another adjacent room. Even knowing that, I'd still go back in a second. The student clinic pricing is amazing.

Very little direction from reception. My first visit and I was directed to sit but there wasn't an obvious seat available. There was a group having some type of consultation in the middle and two others sitting at the desk area. I didn't know there was another area behind the wall and sort of walked back and forth until a seat at the desk was available.

I wonder if there is a way to make the massage room doors or other doors in the space close more quietly, perhaps a thin strip of foam on the doorways... Since the space is so open sound reverberates quite significantly, and for a portion of my massage there were a lot of doors opening and closing, the sound of which detracted quite a bit from my experience...

I attended the 2 day maternity massage class by Karen Giglio. First, let me say how happy I am that this new school has opened in Philadelphia. The space is beautiful and the staff I met are all very friendly. It is great to have a close place to go for continuing education. As for the class itself, it was great! Karen has a a great teaching style that makes it very easy to take in the theory and stay interested for many hours. Her demonstrations were clear and concise and she constantly made sure that the students were using correct technique. Karen is very knowledgable. I also appreciated the small class size (6 students). I do not enjoy attending classes with large class sizes as I feel you really miss out on a lot of the individual learning you get with the smaller classes. I will definitely attend more classes at Philadelphia School of Massage & Bodywork.

Business response:

Hi Julia! Thank you so much for your kind words. We were happy to have you in our space and am so glad you had a great class. Karen is one of the best of the best! Hope to see you again!
