Great Attitudes and Service – I have been getting massage from Kate for years and can tell you she is among the best of the best - strong and thoughtful while working with a deep understanding of what a pained body needs. When she joined Therapeia last year I knew it must be a quality healing facility. Her practice has only gotten better and I have been very impressed with the other therapists I've encountered when visiting Therapeia. Now pregnant and past my due date, I have begun acupunture treatments with Craig to avoid medical inducement. He and his treatment have been wonderful. He listens to my needs (both physical and emotional) and has helped me tremendously in my efforts to focus on what I can do to help my body along while providing gentle and effective treatment. Yes it is true, the do only have room tempature water in their waiting room. but who need cold cucumber water and a fancy spa lounge (which is not advertised and only drives up costs in my opinion) when you get individualized holistic healing and great service?
Overpriced, lacking in giving extra care and attention, price doesn't match overall service and conditions – I recently went back to Therapea with a guest and was sadly disappointed. It's a hard place to find if you're not familiar with S.F. It would have been helpful if the receptionist had informed me of such and perhaps mailed me a map or given me the heads up. The bathroom did not have any soap, the receptionist seemed very busy taking calls, answering questions, and taking care of payments. It didn't seem real organized. There were no hangers available in the massage room. There was a water dispenser which contained ordinary water which was luke warm...with only one glass available on the plastic tray. Didn't get the wax and brow shaping that I had signed up for...but, instead I received a free tweeze (a light one at that), which was determined to be all that was necessary. If you want to receive a menu of all of their services and costs involved, go to their website and be sure and print it out 'cuz you won't find it at the spa. No "menu" was available for the taking or browsing. Just a broshure that provided only some information and some visuals. The products are very good, nonetheless. The massage therapist and estetician (sp?) that were assigned to us were also very well trained. Nice music in the background. Fountains. I think I could go to a spa in my own home town and get far more special attention, ammenities, and a comparable facial for far less money...and my home town is in the beautiful Napa Valley!
Best Hot Stone Massage Ever – I love hot stone massage and this was by far the best hot stone massage ever. I had Allie for 1 1/2 hour massage and she was amazing. Listened to me and sensed my needs and problem stress areas. I felt pampered and well taken care of. The decor and facilities are just OK - not particularly lavish, but everything was clean. The front desk was helpful and this is how they answer the phone "how can we help you enjoy life more?"
Massage was expensive, but well worth it.
best massage in the city – everyone i've seen is incredibly talented, from facials to deep tissue massages to hot stone massages. incredible, no frills value that will leave you feeling fabulous.
The best massage session I have ever had!! – After having my last couple of massage experiences leave me cold, I set out in the search for something better. My quest led me to Therapia and Ill never go anywhere else. The spa decor and general atmosphere are very relaxing and immediately start relieving your stress. My massage therapist, Florence, had her work cut out for her since I had had a migraine a few days before and had thrown my hip out the previous night. I told her about the migraine but not the hip, I didnt want to overload her. I might as well have given her a detailed chart of all my misalignments because she sought them all out and adjusted me back to normal. This was not just a back rub! Florence is obviously a very talented healer. She employed several healing methods during my session. I could not be happier with my experience.
Excellent all around – I am a dancer and really need a good deep massage on a regular basis. I always find that whoever I book with listens to me and uses the techniques I suggest. I don't know why this business visitor rated his massage so badly just because he can't figure out to park in the nearby garage and can't read simple parking rule signs. Well, he's a tourist so of course...the big city is so SCAWY!
Sufian Life saver! – I had the worst shoulder/neck pain. This man saved me! I felt good when I left, but the results came the next day, 100% better. I have been to Therapia about 4 times now and it has been always a great experience, but this last "treatment" with Sufian brought it to a new level!
thank you, thank you! – I called Therapeia and told them that my neck was really bothering me, did they have someone who could help me? I had a 90 minute massage with Dillon and she totally saved me. Not only that, but they made it really easy for me to come in; told me where to park to save time and offered to work with my schedule so that i didn't stress out about it and make my neck worse. The ENTIRE staff was super nice but not cheesy so i felt totally comfortable. After my first visit i became a member and now go for a therapeutic massage every month. they have totally changed my outlook on massage. It's about maintaining health, not pampering yourself (even though it feels so good!!)
Many Thanks Stephanie! – If it wasnt for Stephanie I wouldn't be able to play my guitar! I had severe neck pain and numbness in my arms and hands. She made it possible for me to play again. I am so Greatful to her. Therapeia has a great environment and you never leave disappointed.
Cranial Sacral work by Mia – What a great experience...Mia is a great practitioner. I've had cranial work done before from skilled workers and I felt they were great, but Mia's technique really integrates massage and cranial adjustment and I highly reccommend her. These techniques are very powerful, not just for the body but for the mind. She does a great job. I could feel my body healing itself with her guidance.
