Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • She’s wonderful

    It was great.

  • Very professional

    It’s a little bit hot in the room but the technician had a fan prepared for.

  • I like how informative

    Much of the staff seemed rather ambivalent on my visit. I expected better customer service from a place with staff focused on such a people-centered practice.

  • I emailed to set up an appointment, and it was fairly easy to do. The location was easy to find with the additional directions provided.

    .

  • Enjoyed my visit!

    It is in the massage school, so it does not have a spa atmosphere

Alyssa was great. I appreciated her questions in advance and her after-massage suggestions for stretching. I'll be back!

Donna was wonderful, very relaxed and professional. She used just the right amount of pressure and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the session. I went in with pain in my left shoulder and left feeling much better.

Jessica's Restorative Yoga with Yoga Nidra was a very wonderful experience. I came out of the class feeling fresh and very "restored" to a calm, peaceful state. But the best thing of the class is the Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is something that is very rarely taught in this area and it is a very welcome class. With Jessica's guidance, we all entered an mental state intermediate between awakeness and sleeping where it is possible to "reprogram one's brain". This isn't new age Hocus Pocus, but a real effect (as the benefits have been measured scientifically). Actually, the Yoga Nidra is what brought me to the class. Other people teach "Restorative Yoga" but no one else seems to teach in in conjunction with Yoga Nidra. So, even if the class was just Yoga Nidra I would have taken it! I am obviously very satisfied with the class, so keep me informed of any other classes where Yoga Nidra is involved.
by Julia on Nov 18
My CEU instructor was Karen Giglio. She was great and I would definitely recommend taking a class with her. Donna was the person I spoke to for booking the class. She was very friendly. I wish you all the best for the new school.

It was only my second massage ever and Donna made me feel very comfortable.

Could have used a bit more communication about pressure and what spots to work. Overall a good experience though.
by Maryanne on Mar 19
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.
by Anonymous on Mar 19
I felt in a very safe space and cared for. That allowed me to relax and enjoy every minute of the massage.

Stephanie has great talent! She gave a really good massage plus suggestions for me on how to follow up with my upper back tension.
by Levi on Jun 21
Stephanie is very skilled and attentive, I always leave feeling more present, centered, invigorated. I will often not notice how stiff and immobile my body has become before I go, and when I leave I feel like there is air in my body, for lack of a better way of saying it. I went to hot yoga several hours afterwards and was fairly shocked by how much greater my range of motion was.
by Carla on Jun 12
I particularly appreciated that Stephanie took some time before the session to talk over areas to focus on and how I was feeling that day, and checked in occasionally throughout the massage. I felt like she was pretty in tune with how my body was responding to things as well.
by Anonymous on Jun 07
This was a very intuitive, skilled, deep tissue massage with the perfect amount of pressure. I get a lot of massages for stress and my chronic back pain. This one was definitely in my top 5 for how much energy and pain it moved. I was in completely different shape when I left than when I came in. Thank you!
by Anonymous on Jun 06
Stephanie was extremely professional and I appreciated that she started with questions about my goals for massage, and then followed up at the end of the appointment about various tension spots. This was the most comfortable I've ever felt communicating with a masseuse about my massage experience and goals
by Josh on May 21
Stephanie was great. I love how she used techniques from different massage traditions. Her touch was right. She asked for where I needed work, how hard a touch to use, and was totally professional. I'll definitely be going back soon.

by Anonymous on May 02
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!

Cindy is a wonderful esthetician. The facial was relaxing, and my skin looked beautiful after.

Cindy is great! Love going to her. After my appointment for the LED facial, I went out and was carded. The bartender didn't believe I was in my 30s. She does a great job every time. Thanks!

Love Nancy. Best massage anywhere!
by Anonymous on Dec 19
Nancy's massage was equal parts relaxing and therapeutic. She did some targeted work on my neck/shoulders/rotator cuff, and I woke up the next morning with significantly reduced pain and more mobility.

Knew when to ease up pressure at moment of detection of tender areas, muscles; knew to when to add pressure gradually to work out knots.

Nasrene was amazing. After I left I felt so relaxed and all of the tightness I had was gone. I was a little sore the next day but that's to be expected from being so stressed and waiting so long to get a massage. This was my second time going and I would definitely go a third time.

She’s really amazing
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!
