Lymphatic Massage. I don't write many reviews but this is an exception. I was diagnosed a few months ago with autoimmune disease. After months of misery and chronic illness and pain, I tried a lymphatic massage with Ali at Therapeia. It changed my life, and that is not an exaggeration. I was suffering from severe edema in the lower half of my body which was accompanied by debilitating pain in my legs. Going from doing Bikram yoga every day and being exceptionally healthy and active to barely being able to get out of bed without intense pain was crushing for me emotionally. I began to immerse myself in research on autoimmune disease and found that my lymphatic system was not functioning properly. It was allowing the fluid to build up in my legs, joints and abdomen. The pain was unbearable. Ali met with me, took time to learn about what was going on and went to work. She explained what she was finding as she did the massage and was educating me on how to manage it on my own at home. She was so knowledgeable and compassionate. Her touch was truly healing. After months of pain and agony, I walked out of her massage feeling like a new person. She also sent me a video on dry brushing so I could learn techniques to manage the condition myself when I needed to. It has been a week, I have been dry brushing and I feel amazing. I was overwhelmed with gratitude....she really was my saving grace. I highly recommend her! She's amazing.....Thank you Ali!
Had a great massage here, but since then have been to two other spas in the city and I have to question the rating of best in city. Makes me wonder if something sneaky did not go on with the voting process. However, I love the comfy seating and spacious feeling. I loved the sweet girl, just wish she did not talk so much and could get some of this dang knots out, but she just did not have the touch.
Would love to come here and hang out after a massage with my honey though, very inviting.
Great Massage for the Office. We had Stephanie come into our office for three hours and she was the bomb! I wish she could come every week. She gives an excellent chair massage and I am looking forward to going into the studio for my Hot Stone massage. She listens to your needs and goes deep in the areas that really need it. I would definitely go back to her.
Totally Recommend. I received a massage from Stephanie and she was absolutely amazing! Very understanding of my needs and really focused on my problem area. I felt extremely relaxed, comfortable, and confident that I was in good hands. I am definitely going back to her. I feel 10 times better! What a massage!
superb massage. massage therapist at Therapeia are all wonderful who work on relaxing your body ..My massages are both relaxing and healing .i have always had issues with my back and neck . after the massages i always leave feeling renewed and relaxed...the overall ambiance and service are great...
Serious muscle relief. I have had some good, bad and ugly massages in my time and would have to give Therapeia a thumbs up. It was a totally relaxing experience and I felt like a new woman when I left. I had lots of muscle aches prior to my appointment but felt SO much better after an hour of deep tissue massage..blissful. I have not given the full five stars because I felt that the reception area was a bit chaotic and the receptionist rushed me through.
Holistic healing and rejuvenation are paramount at this alternative spa..
This unique spa is situated in a large, restored mansion in breezy, tree-filled Pacific Heights. An impressive, calming front foyer--filled with crafts by local artisans--gives way to multiple warm-hued passageways lined with 11 private massage and treatment rooms, each tastefully decorated in Asian art and furnishings. The staff of more than 20 strives for the overall well-being of each client. The vibe is friendly, young and alternative, with an emphasis on healing stress and pain along with more cosmetic treatments like organic facials and waxing. The spa is known nationally for a signature hot stone massage, where stones are actually worked against the body for deeper therapy.
The best deep tissue therapist. If your looking for serious deep tissue Stephanie is your girl. I have been to many therapist over the years and have lived with painful neck and shoulder issues. I was needing someone with a more clinical approach and I finally found her. Stephanie is not your standard relaxation therapist. She will get you out of pain. All you need to do is tell her whats bothering you and she gets right to the problem. I have been so happy since I started seeing her. I make my appointments ahead of time so I always know I will get in on her schedule. Give her a try you wont be disappointed.
Great massage - problem solved!. After moving across the country and my husband going out of the country right away, I was in charge of unpacking... but I found just the help that I needed at Therapeia. The receptionist listened to my concerns about my back and neck and scheduled me appropriately - I was set for a massage the same day with Colin. He is a great therapist and I'm very grateful for the relief that I got out of one hour massage! Thank you! I hope to return soon!
THE place for massage!!. I have found THE place for massage!! From the cute, friendly staff (they answer the phone 'how can we help you enjoy life more?' ) to the newly re-modeled lounge in the back, this place is the best! My massage was AMAZING! My therapist checked in with me about pressure, and you could tell he really knew what he was doing. It was the perfect blend of 'working out the kinks' and divine relaxation. After 90 minutes, I felt light and free, without a care in the world. Reception was sweet and efficient. I think it's safe to say I'll be back again and again. They definitley helped me 'enjoy life more' :)
