I had Jennifer give me a massage right after the Nike Women's marathon. It was THE BEST decision I made. I believe because of her great massage therapy I was able to recover more quickly from the event and not be as sore as I thought I would be. I prefer really firm massages and she was able to accommodate for that. I had other friends who were also massaged by her and I know they don't care to really firm pressure so it was great that she could accommodate all these different requests.

Sam is fantastic - she listened attentively to my needs and concerns and worked with my specific issues to give me much needed relief (including tips for managing my aches and pains going forward). She has an intuitive and healing touch - strong where you need it to be and nurturing where you need it to be. I definitely recommend her!

I am so glad I went here instead of none of those massage chains. Lots of personal time well spent with Suzy. I suffered a stroke 15 years ago and my hand has been curled up. After just a few visits I am able to open my hand. I recommend massage therapy to any one with medical issues that PT has not helped.

Lawrence gave me a fantastic therapeutic massage to help rehabilitate an upper back muscle strain I have. He was professional, on time, and thoughtful. He followed up with me the next day to see how I was doing. It's timesaving and comfortable to have a massage in your own home. I've already booked another massage with him!

After neglecting a long time issue with periformis syndrome that physical therapy failed to help, I started seeing Rob for bodywork. Since my initial booking with Rob and one follow up, I've seen huge improvements in my pain level and mobility. His method is very technical but also intuitive and holistic which is exactly what I wanted in a massage therapist. He's not only helped me with his massage, but he's also pointed me in the right direction for other kinds of helpful exercises and stretches off of the table. I've also learned a lot about how my body moves which aids my healing. Rob is a very kind and patient person and seeing him makes me instantly more relaxed. In the future if anyone I know complains of pain, I will always recommend Rob. I'm very happy I found him:)

It was a last minute job and thank goodness she responded. 3 clients back to back and she was great across the board. Plus my husband is a rock and needs strong hands. Amazing therapy massage. She knows what she is doing, equivalent to going to a medical spa massage. Strong knowledge, better than if I went in to a spa. Bring the spa to you! Plus her prices is hard to beat, so so reasonable.

Angel was great! She called me ahead of time to discuss my issues and what we’d be working on, so that we were able to begin the appointment as soon as I arrived. She worked deep in my muscles and got a lot of the kinks out and was very attentive to make sure I was drinking water, etc. Really appreciate the work!

Xavier is one of the most hardworking and dedicated trainers I know. I needed help with my Army Physical Fitness Test training, particularly with my two-mile because I had a huge mental block and never broke that barrier or dropped my time no matter what I did. I found out that Xavier had done extensive research prior, and there were many days we went over one hour but he did not charge extra. He is someone I would describe as not after your money but truly cares about helping you reach your goals, no matter the cost and extra burden on him. The special thing about Xavier is really what you are getting in his packages-- it's not just physical training, but a package that addresses all three things: physical, emotional, and mental. With my mental block, he took me to speak to his wife, who was professionally certified. All at no extra cost to me-- it was all on his dime. Why? Because like I said, he cares about the person and his/her goal rather than just making money. When I was injured or on the brink of getting injured, he was able to help me with physical therapy as well (he's a massage therapist) so I didn't even have to go to a doctor for that. (He really knows what he's doing with physical therapy and massage; I actually feel that it's his specialty). It obviously worked because I was somehow able to avoid all those close calls, recover from a strained shoulder and strained hip, and prevent further injury ALL while intensely training at the same time nonstop for the twenty days I had left. We definitely went over just one hour everyday but Xavier never said anything. I know what I was able to achieve earlier, and I had reached my wits' end with making any improvement. Today, saying I reached my goal is an understatement. I completely smashed my goal and broke a mental and physical barrier forever along the way-- by almost 2 minutes. Something I couldn't break by even a minute for NINETEEN years by myself. But only twenty days with Xavier and suddenly I broke it by not just one but TWO minutes in an already short two-mile run? AND somehow got over my greatest fear at the same time? That's what I call a miracle. Got above and beyond for everything else. At times I know I gave Xavier a hard time because sometimes I wouldn't listen to him or argued with him about what was right. But it doesn't matter who was right or wrong at that time because all that matters to me is the end result-- and I succeeded. Thank you Xavier!

Anatoly understands the body better than most massage therapists. His session is not a "fluff and buff," but a truly therapeutic massage that brings relief from pain and dysfunction. He's a gifted practitioner. I highly recommend multiple sessions.

My session with Teliah was the best massage I've ever had! She has such a calming energy, and took the time to understand and discuss my goals for the treatment. It was a very therapeutic experience. I also really appreciate that she prices her work affordably, so that more people can access massage therapy as part of their healthcare. Thank you Teliah!

I hired Bill after 6 months of severe pain due to impinged rotator cuff. I tried physical therapy and exercising, but was still in severe pain, was taking strong painkillers, barely slept, and was basically disabled. Bill designed a specific program for me. It included targeted exercising, massage therapy, and muscle relaxation and stretching using Yamuna balls. The beginning was ‘typical’: very painful and discouraging with no improvement. After a month or so, the pain was still there, but I noticed that the range of motion in my shoulder was bigger and I slept better. This motivated me to keep seeing Bill. With a few ups and downs and diligently following his instructions and program, I was off the painkillers and completely without pain in 4 months. Interestingly, after a ‘slow and not promising’ beginning, the improvement was fast. I need to mention that Bill is a very patient person. I am sure I was not the easiest client. I had lots of questions and ‘requests’ for explanation of and justification for the things I was doing; I am an MD. Bill patiently and politely answered them, even if I asked them more than once. I would hire Bill again without any hesitation.

Alexander was phenomenal. I went to him for a deep tissue massage to address some tightness that had arisen from my yoga practice. He was very friendly and professional, and his space was quiet and clean. Per his advisory, the massage was definitely not gentle, but it was deeply healing. He always made a point to coach me through moments where I was experiencing heightened discomfort due to built-up tension. I was particularly impressed with how sensitive he was to the slightest movements within different muscle groups (even when I wasn't aware of them myself). We chatted for about 10 minutes afterward, and I was impressed with his thoughtfulness. He explained that we often carry tightness and pain in certain areas as manifestation of experiences and feelings. He encouraged me to 1) notice what feels different after bodywork and 2) consider what may have caused it. Many bodyworkers speak to the psychosomatic nature of muscle tension, but our conversation was particularly enlightening for me. His candor and kindness really made the experience for me. Do yourself a favor and book a session with Alex!

Working with Jessa has been a great experience. I have seen her about 5 or 6 times now, and her massage therapy has been very helpful for my backpain. I am impressed with her techniques and her ability to target specific treatment modalities. She pays attention to my specific needs, tailoring her technique accordingly. She also spends time before sessions with diagnosis (i.e. stretching to see where my muscle limitations are) and then using that info to customize the massage. Also, she is friendly and sweet to deal with. Definitely recommend!

I had an amazing one hour massage earlier this evening from Johnny. He was professional, friendly, and instantly put me at ease. His massage style is therapeutic but also very relaxing; and he uses a wonderful light massage cream which does not leave you feeling greasy. The room is very inviting and the fireplace gives off a warm glow, and the perfect amount of heat. I will continue to see Johnny when I am in town visiting SF! I highly recommend him. Bill

It takes a certain caliber of trainer to be able to deal with my resistance. Jason is one of those few individuals that has been able to get me to preform even admits An exorbitant amount of bitching. He has and amazing personality and his sessions Will save you a tone of money on therapy. Not only am I more physically fit my mental well-being has vastly improved as well. Offers a ton of fitness knowledge and makes totally Achievable accommodations for more difficult exercises in the beginning. For instance my wrist gives me some pain and he works out a routine that very minimally affects it. I originally signed up for 24 session and have since continued to his group sessions because I recognize the value in his service. Each session brings me closer to where I’ve set my goals. If your looking for someone to help you reach your goals I highly recommend Jason. Amazing gym it is kept very clean which is key to keep me coming. I watch trainer wipe down every machine at the end of our sessions. Top of the line equipment and very functionally placed. They have towels and complementary water which is also a plus because I always forget mine. I totally recommend training There!

Ben is, by far, one of the most professional and dedicated personal trainers I’ve ever met. For starter, he is always punctual and responsive. (Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a personal trainer cancelled on me last minute.) More importantly, Ben is extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise. He actually dedicates his time and energy to tailor personalized workout programs that are not only specifically aim to reach my goals, but also accommodating to my body condition. Throughout each training session, Ben always pays extra attention to my techniques for potential improvements. Furthermore, he always manages to come up with different variations of movements to ensure that I can train in the safest and most effective way possible. I noticed substantially amount of muscle and strength gains after a month of training sessions with him. You honestly cannot go wrong with training with Ben!

I contacted Marianne to see if she could help me with guidance and answers to my medical questions as well as help me understand how to deal with life’s overall stress due to work, relationships, finances and a whole lot more.

My experiences with Le Mon's Massage Therapy services has always been pleasant. My high demanding and stressful job tend to negatively effect my body. After consulting with my doctor, I began looking for massage therapist. Some therapist did not take the time to investigate or ask about my problematic areas. This has caused me a lot of pain. Le Mon's Message Therapy is convenient and always takes the time to find out what I need. I now only trust them for my massages.

I have been working with Chiayueh for over a month now. I have a weakening muscle diesease and had a very hard time doing the basic things in life. Since working with her I am able to dress, shower, and put on my own shoes. I have less pain and am getting more mobil. It’s been so noticeable to my husband and even surprised him that he is no longer helping me with these things. Thank you Chiayueh.
