I am 36 weeks pregnant, having a lot of lower back, shoulder, leg and arm pain. Yury was a godsend and he worked on all my issues, used very good pressure while taking care not to impact my stomach or other contra-indicated spots. Other massage therapists seem wary of touching a pregnant women and as a result the knots in my muscles don't go away. Yury showed me how one leg had shortened due to contracted muscles in my hip and back, explained anatomy and did a great massage. I highly recommend him!

We hired Selah Bodyworks for our Memorial Day Weekend backyard barbecue and we couldn’t be happier with them. From my very first conversation with Jose, he worked to accommodate our requests in a friendly, professional manner and stayed in touch with us every step of the way. Talking to Jose was like chatting with a buddy and he helped to make planning everything effortless, while never losing focus of his mission, appreciation for the art and desire to genuinely have a positive impact on his clients . Our therapist, Megan, arrived professionally dressed and on time and treated our guests to a few minutes of bliss that they all raved about. Over and over I heard that, aside from offering an excellent massage, she was extremely friendly and patient which meant a lot to our guests, especially those that were new to massages. Book Selah Bodyworks with confidence as we will again.

I injured my back 2 weeks ago and my physician recommended I get a massage to help. It was also my birthday so my husband scheduled a couples massage. It was my first massage ever and I have to say it was wonderful. Nicole was spectacular! She asked where the pain was and ensured that during the massage she used pressure that my body could handle. The music they played was soothing. They started and ended on time. I can say enough about how wonderful their services are. I want to schedule another massage as soon as I can.

I don't ever write reviews but since I was so excited and satisfied with my experience I felt the need to help get the word out. I am a professional athlete. I am a pitcher in professional baseball and having full function of my body is crucial to my success. Cynthia did an amazing job working on my body, but specifically my hips and throwing shoulder. Having full range of motion in my hips and shoulder is vital to me being able to perform at my peak ability. Cynthia helped to loosen up my hips and help my range of motion in my shoulder. I'm usually not a big massage guy because a lot of times it can be awkward, but Cynthia made it very easy by explaining what she was doing, how it was going to help, and just friendly conversation. Cynthia has tremendous knowledge of the body and how it works and helped take my pitching to a whole new level. I can't thank her enough for her work. I would definitely recommend her to anybody from professional athletes like myself who need to be at our peak athletic performance, or to someone who just wants to feel better on a daily basis. Thank you again to Cynthia!

Cynthia is absolutely wonderful. I have been seeing her since I was pregnant, and now that I gave birth I continue to see her. She is very professional and knows what she is doing. She has offered me relief and offers ideas and exercises for when she is not around. Not only is she a great massage therapist she is also an amazing person! Do not hesitate to book her.

I disovered Alex via my brother in law; I couldnt be happier. He's prompt, professional, thorough and always goes the extra mile. He has gifted hands, like a physical psychic of sorts; he knows just where to go, how much pressure to apply and works to get every knot, kink and cramp out. As a makeup artist, I have quite a physical job that requires me to stand for long very long periods of time on set, often times contorting my body into unhelathy positions to do talent and to carry a makeup kit with me which weighs on average 25+kg (50lbs) The first time I had a session with Alex, he knew exactly which side was my dominant side just by feel. Its as if I was a symphony and he's the conductor, coaxing, repositinong and lifting my muscles up off of my bones and laying them back down again in the correct positions. It sounds and feels quite poetic. Being a massuese or any kind of hands on practitoner is not an easy job as its more than just physical; They actually take on all of the energy that you give off as they work on you and it travels through and releases via them. It is easy to see that Alex takes an exceptional amount of pride in his work and takes it very seriously as only someone who is this dedicated to being a body practioner would be able to do it as well as he does. My overall mental and physical health has only been improved by receiving regular massage work from Alex and for this I'm quite grateful. I cannot recommend his services enough.

My husband and I had a great experience with Jorge. This was our first time getting an at home massage so I was skeptical at first but I’m so glad we did. My husband and I had two completely different massages mine prenatal and his deep tissue. Both were amazing. So if your looking for a relaxing experience or someone to help with tension Jorge is your man. His prices were fair and he was prompt and professional. Looking forward to another appointment in the near future.

I started getting massages from Nicky last spring to help with lower back problems and just overall tightness of the muscles that comes from spending my days sitting hunched over a computer. I have to say she is the BEST!!! After seeing at least a dozen different MT's over the last 4 years since moving to NJ, Nicky was the first person who I've wanted to keep going back to. And for the last 8 or 9 months I've been getting massages from her about once every 3 to 4 weeks with no plans to stop :) From the moment you meet her you discover she is an authentic, good natured spirit who loves what she does. It may sound crazy but when I meet people I always go with my gut reaction and what kind of 'vibes' I get from them, before I can put words to what I like/dislike about them. From the day I met her I have gotten nothing but good vibes from Nicky. She begins each massage with a quick 'grounding' to clear out whatever else in the world is going on, and brings you to the present moment to really enjoy and relax during your massage, without the standard mind racing that usually takes place for the first 20 mins of every massage I've received in the past. Whether I decide to silently enjoy the massage or chat with Nicky for all or part of the 90 mins, it's always a fantastic experience. I recommend to anyone looking for a great massage therapist, to schedule some time with Nicky. You will enjoy it like no other massage, that much I am certain!

My experience during my first reiki healing sessions were better than I could have ever expected. Nicky's calm and nuturing demeanor is only part of the reason why I will be making more appointments through Mahalo Healing. In addition to creating such a relaxing enviroment with calming music and her soft tone of voice, Nicky also took the time to personalize my treatment and provided me with a "take home" sheet which included mantras that I could use through meditation. Since I have been receiving reiki in hopes to enhance fertility, she guided me in understanding the 7 chakras and ways I can "awaken" them (specifically my second chakra). She taught me self massage techniques to continue after our session which I have been doing daily. I've already felt such a positive shift in my life since our first sessions and I look forward to continuing this journey with Mahalo Healing! ....oh and the best part! She comes to you! Couldn't be more convenient . Lots of Love to MH for sharing your love and dedication to heal and make a positive impact on others!

I've been getting massages from Nicky for close to a year now, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great massage. Such a relaxing experience....the massage, the aromatherapy, and just the overall energy that Nicky brings to every massage makes each appointment something I really look forward to every 3 weeks :)

Where do I even begin...this may possibly be the best massage I have had. Karl is just amazing. He is really tuned into what my body needed. Most deep tissue massages are painful and leave you sore for a week. His technique is effective, but gentle. He knows how to focus on problem areas with strength without rubbing a whole in your skin. I am not easily impressed, but he is worth every minute and every penny. Thank you Karl. I can't wait to hire you again!

Having never seen a massage therapist before, I was a bit nervous, and unsure what to expect. Karl was both professional and gracious - checking in throughout the session to make sure that I was comfortable. The work itself was also amazing - I walked out the most relaxed I have been in years. He worked out tension which I hadn't even realized was there. A++

If you are looking for an AMAZING massage experience, Sharon Ackerman will absolutely not disappoint you. She is uniquely intuitive about healing and touching people and her massages can best be described as nurturing, centering, rhythmic, freeing, and incredibly effective. Massage is a very intimate thing...to allow someone you don't know into your personal space and to trust that...Sharon's gentle nature immediately puts you at ease and she greatly appreciates and values the trust given to her by her clients. I personally cannot wait for her to work on me, as I always leave feeling light as a feather and in much better condition than before our sessions. I really cannot say enough good things about her.

Sharon created an atmosphere of calm, relaxation, and positive energy even before the actual massage began. I throughly enjoyed the aromatherapy as a side benefit to the massage therapy too. As far as the actual massage, Sharon talked to me first about any possible physical issues and was completely conscientious of my needs before any contact. Once she started on my massage, she throughly worked through each area, such as my shoulders, to firmly work out the knots and kinks. This was truly a relaxing and zen-like therapeutic massage, and I highly recommend Sharon for this service.

I've had sooo many massage therapists and masseuses for the last 20 years and Steve is a rare breed IMO. I have chronic pain issues that are so bad now just walking to a massage spa is daunting. So I thought I'd try someone who could come to my house as I would be more relaxed. First of all, his folding bed was more comfortable than some spas! Secondly, and most importantly, he asked what ailed me and he applied soft pressure sometimes and stronger pressure other times (which is unusual because most massages are either/or). He explains why you have tension in certain areas of the body as a direct result of other areas in the body that you carry similar/mirroring tension (a compensating effect) which made a lot of sense to me. Physical therapists have touched on this phenomenon (no pun intended) but never delved into it as deeply & logically. Very helpful because it adds to your awareness of how you carry yourself (out of habit & circumstance) & your posture & how all these things considered affect your overall physical health (which can even affect your mental health/spirit!). So Steve's a keeper! I can't recommend him highly enough (& can't wait for my next session, I feel worlds better!)!

I was having neck and shoulder issues, suffering with headaches nearly every day until I began working with Steve. Steve's hands are pure magic, and his deep tissue massages are exactly what I needed to work out the knots that were aggravating my aching body. For the last five years, Steve has been a constant in my life. Always the consummate professional, Steve comes to my home with his equipment, prepared to do whatever manipulation is necessary to make me feel better. He is reliable, he is amazing, and I recommend him unconditionally!
