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.

Getting a massage can be a reminder that we are mostly just meat on sticks, or, in my case, trash tornadoes and tightly wound bungee cords. Stephanie is a skilled practitioner who made me feel more like melted butter by the time I oozed off her table. She is a master at her craft.
by Anonymous on Nov 23
Stephanie is amazing! She holds the perfect balance between listening to you and your needs and bringing in her experience and observations of your body to provide education for you. She literally reset my body - I find I am holding my shoulders differently and able to breathe easier. She was able to identify that my chronic knee pain is connected to tension in my hips; in one session, she used strong pressure and deep tissue techniques to work through tension there and in my shoulders. Please see her! Her work is a gift to you and your relationship with your body.
by Melissa on Nov 03
I’ve never had a massage like this before, it addressed tension & pain in my lower back and shoulders. I’m grateful to have found Stephanie for bodywork massage, it’s already improved my well being after one session.

Steph makes the entire experience comfortable! I feel like she can see my muscles and tell what they need. She applies pressure in ways I could not have targeted alone. I am so grateful for her work!

I filled out my form ahead of time and noted my food allergies (citrus allergy). I hoped this wouldn’t be a big issue, but when I arrived, I was made to feel like I was inconveniencing the esthetician. She repeatedly told me throughout the facial how she had to do a lot of work to switch out their products since they used many citrus-based materials. She also did not have an exfoliant on hand, and said she was using "something a previous esthetician left behind" for me since it was citrus free. When asked about my sunscreen, I explained that I cut sunscreen with a moisturizer because they can leave a purple/white tint on my dark skin. She then said she had never heard of that before, laughed, and claimed it must just be me! I know this is a common concern among women of color (there are articles from Allure, Elle, Sephora, etc about the very topic), and so I was shocked with that as a response. Overall, an experience that was meant to be a relaxing treat ended up being a huge disappointment. If I was told ahead of time that my allergy posed a problem - I could have cancelled and saved everyone's time.

Cindy is awesome. She thoroughly examined my skin, asked questions to find the best products to use on my face and suggested other treatments that can help with skin concerns I have. The appointment was relaxing and my skin felt soft and refreshed after my visit. Would highly recommend her to anyone!

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!

by Anonymous on May 08
Lisa was kind, and I'm glad I got the opportunity to experience Reiki with her. I do wish she had been more thorough with explanations of what was to go on, and that she'd had more of a coaching attitude. Even in something healing and spirituality based, like Reiki, its important to listen to the needs of the client, and let them make final determinations on their own health decisions.
by Gaye on Feb 23
Lisa was kind and professional. I definitely would be willing to see her again. As well as refer her to friends and family.

Was a little disappointed that I didn't get the foot massage I thought I would get, but after l met Lisa and she explained the overall program I was fine. The room smelled amazing, combined with soothing sounds the whole experience was great!

Mamapolo is a breath of fresh air! I’ve had a lot of massages in the past but she’s the first that has incorporated the breath into a massage and this made a huge difference for me. She also took the time to review our process and my needs carefully before the session so that she could create a massage just for me. So happy to have met her - thanking my lucky stars!
by Anonymous on Sep 04
Liked the flow of the strokes. Had a good relaxing and effective massage. The massage seemed to end abruptly. With more experience I am sure that M.T.'s massages will have a natural end.
by Mary on Aug 22
I’ve had massages at fancy spas in the past, but Mamapalo M. actually listened to my requests and gave me exactly what I wanted which was the best massage ever. I’m definitely going back and will recommend to everyone.
by Anonymous on Aug 21
Mamapalo is amazing! From the second her hand touched my back I started to relax. I came with very tight shoulders after a big move and she worked the tightness away. I told her that I was ok with a stronger/harder massage and she really figured out the perfect touch. My shoulders and body felt tingly and relaxed for the rest of the day. I would recommend Mamapalo without reserve. She is very skilled.

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...

It was a great experience! I had never had a facial in my somewhat long life (69). It was relaxing and comforting. When I arrived home late in the afternoon, I asked my husband to touch my face and he remarked how soft my skin felt.

It is not a spa like space, but that is not at all important to me. It was quiet and It's the service that counts. I liked that it included some upper body massage.

The center was very professional and inviting. The fact that it was on a lower floor of the building gave it a more "grounded" feeling. The room that the Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra took place was very peaceful and appropriate for the inward journey that we would undertake.

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!
