Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • This was my first time with Urban Zen and it was fantastic. Already recommended them to a number of friends!

    Had a blended service of yoga and massage. Loved combining these together. It was specific to my needs. It was amazing. Thanks for making my day!

  • Elena provides a very personalized and effective deep tissue massage. You can tell she has years of experience and knows exactly how to apply pressure to relieve the tension in the muscles. She's really a master at work and you can feel it in how she works. The personal warmth and interest she gives in you and the issues you face in your life in relation to your well-being take her care to the next level. She really wants to provide you with the tools to prevent muscle pain and tension so that you can live a better life. She's terrific!

    Definitely helped work out the tight spots and helped me to relax.

  • Great room!

    I was getting Masage therapy on a regular basis, every two weeks that is until yesterday. Cecilia worked me over spending time working on troubled area my former therapist overlooked. I promise you this, you’ll be hooked after one session. I am!

  • Urban Zen is phenomenal and they are inside a beautiful yoga studio. However, the yoga studio has kids classes and during my massage there was a lot of sound bleed through, so I heard children playing for the majority of my massage. But other than that, it's perfect.

    .

  • Very thorough, in tune with my body's needs, demonstrated knowledge as well as skill, patient, caring. Great experience that will be repeated.

    Elena incorporates many different techniques for an amazing session. I always leave feeling so much better. Nowhere else can really compare.

I had a fantastic deep tissue massage from Stacy. She has great flow and she used just the right pressure for me. She was very attentive and gave good extra attention to all the areas I had complained about before the start of the session. Her neck and pec work was fantastic! Stacy has great energy and I felt very comfortable with her. I will definitely be having another massage with her soon.

I have never had a massage that was as good as the one Cecilia did. I have a lot of issues (back, hip, knee, shoulder, etc.) and she knew exactly how to get to the source of all of them. I've had many massages and none of them touch her skill. Highly recommend, especially if you prefer massages that produce results and don't mind the pain of a deep tissue massage. A++++

Elena is an incredibly talented massage therapist. Elena is super attentive to the needs of her clientele - from problem areas to pressure preferences. I particularly liked how she incorporates multiple techniques in a 60 min session. I was dealing with a middle back pain for almost 6 months when I got a massage with her and after 60 min the pain was completely gone!! I look forward to scheduling another massage with her in the near future.

My first session with this therapist provided me with the results that I needed. The atmosphere was quiet but not isolated. Elena showed good measures to incorporate the best results such as utilizing a warm pack to loosen cold muscles in my top troublesome areas prior to applying the massage lotion. My body is sensitive to heavy pressure and I prefer a medium amount, she explains what is needed and why. There has not been any soreness since my appointment. In fact I have felt great. This is Elena's passion and the benefits show. I believe it's her calling because she is one of the very best. Also, I have added a monthly appointment to my schedule. Investment in your health - it pays dividends!

I just finished a session with Elena and I felt that I had to go spread the news of this most amazing experience! Elena has the most unique approach to massage, and I loved every minute of it! You can tell right from the start that she has the utmost interest in helping you! Besides being super knowledgeable about the human body and the kinesthetics of it, she focuses on YOUR needs and not some routined, one size fits all, approach. She incorporates many different styles into one session! You can expect thai-inspired techniques, to aromatherapy and cupping. I felt like through one session my body transformed for the best! Don't get me wrong, I am eager to book my next session immediately! Give yourself some love and book an appointment at Urban Zen Bodywork! Treat Yourself!!

If you need a true massage, this is the place. I made the decision to have a massage with cupping as I knew I had tons of knots in my upper back area. Elena was amazing. Elena applied various techniques to address my issues. In addition, she also gave me tips on stretching throughout the day. I would highly recommend Urban Zen for a professional massage from a true massage therapist. Thank you Elena.

I was captivated by the rave reviews about Elena. I’ve seen some of the best bodyworkers there are, and I can honestly say that Elena takes the cake. To start, her room is a tranquil alcove with minimal lighting, ambient music—not to forget, yummy Ashiatsu bars on the ceiling. Over the course of our three sessions, Elena mushed me with her hands and feet, stretched me, and nurtured me. I noticed a difference in my energy, after the first session, and had much more mobility when I later exercised. I felt lighter on my feet, so much less sore, spry. Elena really is an outlier, adept at working through tight spots, alleviating throbbing old injuries, and did I mention that, she gives the yummiest Ashiatsu! -WB

Elena is absolutely amazing! I am a very physically active person between my line of work and my exercise programs (CrossFit and running) so I was seeking a therapist that is used to dealing with athletes and those with active lifestyles. Elena is a very skilled professional that made my body feel new again! I also had cupping done by her and it helped tremendously with areas of tension on my back. The studio space is immaculately clean, aesthetically beautiful, and zen to create a comfortable and healing environment. I can't wait for my next session with her and can't recommend her enough!

This massage with Elena was so amazing. It was the best massage I’ve ever had. Adding the back scrub was just what I needed! I HIGHLY recommend the deep tissue massage! The whole time I felt very comfortable and Elena asked me several times if the pressure was okay and if I was doing alright. She really does go the extra mile to make sure you’re feeling good and enjoying your massage!
