"Had a fantastic one hour Ashiatsu massage with Luba today. This was my third with her in the past month and she is easily the best therapist I have been to in Jacksonville, and I have been to SEVEN others over the past three years between Fernandina and Mandarin. Her Ashiatsu massage is exactly what I had been looking for to treat my chronic back pain and muscle tightness. This is the only massage I have had here where real pressure is applied making it a true deep tissue massage. When you book a one hour massage with her you get a one hour massage, and at very fare rates. None of this paying for 60 minutes and then barely getting a 50 minute “deep tissue” where the therapist doesn’t want to do any real deep work and get tired, and instead wastes half the massage time taking it easy by working on your scalp, toes, fingers, wrists, etc. Luba knows how to do a real Ashiatsu and the varying pressure that is applied takes a lot of skill to do correctly, which she has. She takes the time and interest in actually trying to address your pain, such as today when she recommended and applied thorough stretching to my shoulder area between the massage work so my visit would be more effective. Her treatment room is done up real nice and has the actual Ashiatsu bars in the ceiling over the table. Her massage is not just some person walking aimlessly on your back, like what I had at a supposed Ashiatsu place in Mandarin. Will be returning soon and also getting a gift massage for my mom."
