5 stars Vanessa is a professional, knowledgeable compassionate and caring massage therapist. I recommend her highly.
This was my FIRST and NOT last time to this spa. Vanessa was amazing! Thank you!!
Vanessa provided an excellent massage. Very thorough and symmetrical with just the right amount of deep pressure. I’ll be sure to return…
Yesterday l had the great pleasure of meeting Jennifer, Chantel and Vanessa. All three were very warm and welcoming. Each were professional in their services, but made you feel you were old friends. My afternoon started with Chantel. Though l have had facials and massages at other well known facilities, none were so thorough and relaxing as the treatment l received from Chantel and Vanessa. I left feeling relaxed rejuvenated and invigorated. I can hardly wait to return and have many more pleasurable experiences. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.Barbara Lazar
Vanessa was great! Had been going to physical therapy for a sports injury and was not making progress other than getting really tight with spasms. She did a great job working through those! Would definitely recommend!
This was my first experience receiving a professional massage and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Vanessa hit all my knots with the perfect amount of pressure! I felt very flexible and relaxed afterwards to the point I fell asleep within the last 15 minutes. I would come back again
The service that Vanessa provided was excellent, looking forward to next visit.
This was my second time with Vanessa and this time it was a couples’ massage for 90 minutes. Everything was excellent and I will definitely repeat. The pressure and thoroughness were perfect and I felt fully rejuvenated afterward.
Vanessa was awesome! This was truly the best "Spa Day' I have ever had!!! The massage and facial were just heavenly....and the hand and feet treatments were so unexpectedly lavish!! Love this place and Vanessa! Will be going back on a regular basis!! Also loved the jade stone on my face.......never had that before!
Efficient booking and payment system. Vanessa is a confident and capable therapist. Recommended.
I have visited many SPA's and was unable to find a person as good as Vanessa. I had a Facial and a Massage and both were excellent.
It was wonderful and exactly what I needed. The massage was as expected since I've had those before, somewhat relaxing but I had knots that needed to be worked out. The surprise was from Vanessa. The facial, head, hand and foot massage had me so relaxed that I kept dozing off.:) My face feels fantastic and my color is back, if that makes sense. Thank you for a great day.
Vanessa is fantastic! I've had many massages but she's the BEST !!!
It was very refreshing to get a massage by Vanessa. Just the right amount of pressure to release tiredness and tension... and nice that face is included in her massage. The massage reset my whole rhythm.
I had a terrific facial from Vanessa yesterday. She was very thorough and knowledgeable but the best part was she really listened to me and tried her best to meet my needs. I have had facials at numerous spas and Vanessa ranks up there with the best. She exceeded my expectations. I will definitely go back!
I received such a relaxing massage with just the right touch. Usually I have to ask for someone to work on my face but this was part of the treatment from Vanessa. Also she really is a good listener. I am sensitive and asked for a light touch massage which she obliged. Very good treatment! Highly recommended.
There is one reason to not give a good review. And that is this location is so wonderful and Vanessa is amazing. Now all of you are going to want to book appointments and make it more difficult for me to get in. Ha Ha But seriously - I have searched and searched since moving here to find the quality of massage I was used to. I have found it, and have no intention of looking any further. The business is wonderful, but it is the employees that make the business. Vanessa is so in tune to discovering your needs and has helped me so much. Thank you to the owners at Massage and Wellness for putting together an amazing team.
Vanessa was so good, I bought 10 pack of gift of wellness cards to share with friends. I'll be back!
Vanessa is an incredible therapist! Her attention to detail and knowledge of musculature is astounding. She genuinely cares about the therapy of her clients and that bleeds into the quality of her work. I am committed to her because she is committed to making a difference!
Vanessa was wonderful. I had a lot of tension and pressure in my back and really did a great job of getting rid of that. I would definitely recommend.
I originally saw Addie with a gift card I'd gotten for my birthday. She listened to the issues I was having and tailored her massage to those issues. I felt nice and loose when I left, and she recommended a possible follow-up schedule. Then I had a different problem, and I needed to find someone who was available same day. Addie was not available, so I chose Vanessa, who had a time slot available that fit my schedule. Again, Vanessa listened to my issue and really worked on my neck and back. While the issue was not completely gone when I left, she significantly improved it and made suggestions for home care. I will definitely be back, and I'll probably flip a coin to decide whether I'll see Addie or Vanessa, because they were both really good.
Vanessa is a fabulous therapist. She works with my feedback during our session to determine where and what is the best treatment for me.
Vanessa gave me the very best massage I've ever had. She was very professional and paid attention to my high stress areas. I walked out feeling like a young person instead of my 71 years. I will be back - for sure!
Vanessa did an amazing job. She made sure I felt comfortable the entire time.
My first visit did not disappoint! I had an amazing massage by Vanessa!!!! If your in the area and want a great massage this is the place to go! Thankfully where I normally frequent was booked so I decided to try this location - it's now moved to the top of my list and I will be back soon!!!
I am very pleased with Vanessa. She takes good care of me. She always inquires which area I would like for her to work on special. I always feel great after her massage.
I've had more than 200 massages and Vanessa's professional massage is the very BEST !!!
I give massage & Wellness SPA 5 Stars for everything you could probably think of the receptionist was great, the atmosphere was very relaxing and inviting, the staff (Addy & Vanessa) professional and wonderful, aromatherapy is to die for also the deep tissue massage was so very therapeutic.
So yes...make an appointment for the experience of your life
I have tried a few places closer to home, however, this is by far the best place for me. I had a relaxation massage and a facial yesterday and left there feeling great. Vanessa is great and did a wonderful job on both services and I can’t wait to go back again soon.
I have been to Vanessa twice and am very pleased. She makes you feel very comfortable. I am so happy to have found a great masseuse again.
I have been a client of Massage & Wellness SPA for a number of years and I just want to add my comments about the wonderful experience you will enjoy at this SPA.
From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Jennifer, you know you're in for a great treat.
I had the opportunity of having an Aroma Therapy Massage. Vanessa is a specialist in this wonderful art of massage. She also gave me an amazing deep tissue session. It was a heavenly hour.
I would recommend Massage & Wellness to anyone, who wants to enjoy a personal, professional and positive experience.
