Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Mike was extremely professional and addressed my stated needs with a vengeance (in the best possible sense), and do I ever feel better. The back pain literally disappeared and my neck is better. I am trying to stretch and exercise to continue the progress. I will definitely making another appointment with Mike as funds allow. Mike is only the second male I have been fully relaxed with and I typically request female therapists. CB PS The first make I was fully relaxed with was Ed quite a few years ago at the Marshall Street location.

  • This was my first visit to The Art of Massage. They are located in a lovely old house which is full of character. The staff was friendly, the room I was in was large and yet cozy. I had a wonderful experience.

    I like the openness of the Spa 500 mansion. I admire it's woodwork, ambiance, and all the great people that make the place happen. It has a very relaxed setting, and it is never overcrowded or mismanaged. Wow, a lot of planning, thought, and hard work, went in to this place. Amazing! I will be back in June if the stars are aligned. You bet your life, baby! What a gem to have a Spa 500 on the near west side in our great city of Syracuse.

  • This building is beautiful! I have no negative comments!

    Very cool place! Easy parking and entrance. I was taken right back as soon as I got there

  • Place was noisy- could hear everything through walls. Also chilly

    Everyone is very nice here !

  • Jacuzzi was really relaxing and atmosphere is very soothing.

    I would suggest you might want to have better and more permanent tables. The one I was on was not very comfortable.

I've had a number of massages at various places. Some have been great, others good, a couple less than good. Katherine ranked in the great category. She started on time and ended a complete hour later (some places finish early so you can get dressed, which I never felt was fair). In addition, she concentrated on the areas I needed help with and gave a therapeutic firm massage, just what I wanted. Her demeanor was professional and friendly. Highly recommended!!

I can't say enough kind things about Katherine. Besides her skill and professionalism she is genuine and very accommodating. She truly cares and as a result of my monthly visits she has helped to diminish my pain and improve my mobility.

I liked Mike's professionalism, and his ability to help me relax and feel better. I had a very sore neck which disrupted my sleep, and today it is much better. I find some of the better benefits of massage can happen days after getting the massage. This is certainly the case after having a massage from Mike Maresca. I would recommend him to anyone.
by Ceara on May 09
Mike was outstanding! I’m a very serious athlete and his technique was impressive! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for some relief from sports/athletic muscle ailments. I will definitely be making a return visit to see him!

Massage was fantastic! However, the facial was not a true spa facial - just a mask like you can buy at Sephora.

Business response:

Thank you for visiting the Spa, and for your kind words. The Half Day at the Spa menu includes a "Facial Massage Treatment", not a full facial treatment as offered by aestheticians. Let us know how we can improve your experience next time, and thanks for taking the time to write!

I bought a couples massage and sauna session as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Had to reschedule my first appointment last minute as I had to take my son to the ER. Then I unfortunately had to have surgery and the only day my doctor does this surgery happened to be at the same time as the massage. The owner would not allow me to rebook the massage despite this being out of my control and offering to pay a rebooking fee. Worst costumer support ever! Would not recommend this establishment to anyone.

Do not book any services here! I bought this as a gift to my boyfriend for Christmas. Had to cancel the first appointment to take my son to the ER and then unexpectedly had surgery scheduled for me on the day of the second appointment. The owner would not let me rebook even though I offered to pay a rebooking fee. Lost all the money. Extremely unhappy with how unprofessional this place is.

I can tell that there’s some cosmetic changes being made which is a good thing. Maybe updating the jacuzzi room would be beneficial. It would be awesome to add a float pod.
