Came here to get a pre-race massage before doing the Avalon 50 mile ultramarathon, and liked it so much that I came back immediately after the race for a post-race massage!

I was so happy with this place. Everyone was so professional and friendly. There was a confusion in pricing but the owner came down to apologize in person and fix the issue. Everything was excellent and if I ever visit this island again, I will definitely go back! :)

They were very accommodating to our schedule, which changed several times throughout the day, and we're able to fit is in when we requested. The space was an apartment converted into a no-frills,...

I was given the massage as a gift, went into it with a neutral attitude based on past massages at other places. Can I just say "wow"; I walked out a new person! The deep tissue was perfect, atmosphere is clean, lovely and ideal. staff wonderful to deal with and very gracious.
