My husband and I have had numerous couple massages but this one was the best so far we ever experienced. The place was Super Clean and they followed all the policies that are required during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I wanted to thank Maggie and Lou Lou their professionalism was outstanding, but not to forget the Front Desk clerk she was inviting and very polite. The company chooses well, they are definitely an asset to the company. I would definitely recommend this place and we will definitely return as a repeat customer. A job well done!

Have been looking for a new place for massage since leaving Massage Envy ( Their customer service sucks!!) and decided to give Bamboo Wellness a try. We went on Sunday 4/24/16. AWESOME Massage! Lulu and Kery were fabulous! Very strong hands! Kery walked on my boyfriend's back! Very nice place and clean! Went back for a second massage a week later!

Dear Kathi, Thank you so much for writing, to inform others of your experiences. Back walking is an ancient easten technique that we knew hard working Americans would appreciate.... thank you for giving us a chance. Thank you again. Sincerely, Tanty

I went there on a recommendation from a friend and told him that my shoulder was hurting. I did not know what the issue was and left it in their hands. It was painful because of my issue when they were massaging it, but after a few days the pain went away.

I highly recommend this spa!

Dear NYSE 2013, Thank you for considering our services as a traveler to the area. We are grateful for your association with us and pleased that our balance of ancient healing technique blended with today’s standards for cleanliness and service were appropriate for your body’s needs. We do have to snicker a bit, since in Asia we view things differently…meaning a massage may be entirely “blood, sweat and tears” to use an old phrase and from the outside appear to be sheer pain, yet we know that within a few days or less all will be well; which of course is entirely different from western massage, which is focused on increasing the feeling of wellbeing during the entire massage. Both are important, and we blend as much Swedish technique as possible, but the old saying that “a little short term pain equals long term gain” often applies at Bamboo Wellness. However, be sure to inform us if “just” Swedish Massage is desired or if seeking deeper healing/body work, and specific pain is too great, we want to adjust, since pain is NOT necessary to heal, but often is part of the process. There is obviously something healing about just having a “feel good” massage too, and we offer plenty of these as well, to various clients. Thank you once again for your time in communicating with us, we are very appreciative. Faithfully, Tanty

My husband and I have been coming here for almost a year. We have had several different therapist providing some of the best massages we have ever had. This is a high compliment from us as we have had massages all around the world and back. You are professional, clean and most importantly fantastic at listening to what we need. Thank you for dedication to wellness!

Not a high end salon, the ambiance lacked for me. The room was completely bare aside from a small table with a clock and flower in the corner and two holding poles lined across the ceiling for back walking. Nothing on the walls. I went with my husband to get a couples massage, his first one ever. We enjoyed our massages but the room we were in was so small they had to move my table every time they wanted to go in and out which was a couple times mid massage to collect hot stones or warm towels. The hot stones were a nice touch but I don't remember asking for them or them being included in a Swedish massage. I wasn't ready and unaware they were about to touch my back and oh boy, hot! They focused mainly on our backs which I didn't mind but am used to having my entire body worked on.

All in all, we will most likely return for individual massages. Pricing was decent and the masseuse's worked out our knots. Left feeling relaxed and refreshed for the most part. In addition, the staff is very kind.

Dear Customer, Thanks for taking the time to post, we appreciate your candor; it’s the best way for us to learn from our customers to become better. Thank you also for being willing to come back, which means a lot to us since we work very hard at being what most say is the best spa in town for sincere body work. The walls of our rooms are bare intentionally, which is very Zen. Also, no frills doesn’t mean we aren’t modern, state of the art or clean and effective, it just means we have learned that what one customer likes on the walls in the way of décor the next person does not… hope you understand our point of view. We did however include various color schemes in fashionable paint, nice tile floors, sheik furniture and of course our spa is indeed spotless as well as modern. We are glad you had a nice massage but also sorry that there were some wrinkles too. We do couples massage for many customers; it’s very popular at our spa. We never have to move the tables, so this must have been a onetime situation? Perhaps the tables where set up incorrectly and it was too late to move them completely once your massages started. We are very apologetic but please do not let this inhibit your quest for couples massage, because it is a wonderful experience. You are correct, Hot Stone is not typically included in a basic massage because it requires more work for the masseuse. However, your backs were very knotty, hence the use of hot stones (heat can relax and expand a muscle) as well as more time dedicated to your backs. Also true that typical Swedish Massage is a “once over” technique, but Asian massage is more focused on acute vs general application; meaning your backs were in need of additional work. It is much harder for a therapist to work on your back, but they put the time in anyway because of the need. Please keep in mind that we can always customize what you need if we have more detailed discussion prior to service. We would like to meet your standards…we are in business of helping people regain confidence in movement, alleviate pain, etc. We are the real deal and most of our business is repeat business and includes substantial professional clientele with plenty from the medical field including MDs, Chiropractors, Nurses and so on, with a need for alternative methodology, as no system—whether ancient or modern—can be everything to everyone every time. Thank you very much for the kind words. We do work very hard. We are not in the business of collecting money for 60 minutes of rubbing lotion on your body but rather getting to know you as a regular client, so that we can implement body work that is lasting and effective…it’s all about quality of life, which comes from quality of movement and lack of pain. When back again, please be sure to point out to me personally, the manager, Tanty, who you are, so we can spend more time meeting your standards. Thanks for taking the time to communicate with us, we are grateful. Best Regards, Tanty

You can tell a lot about a place by its bathroom...and when its brand new looking and smells like bleach, for me, that is a major indicator.

These people are from Asia and they know body work...its in their culture...I have been all over the world, and this is top of the line service, yet they kept it simple so its competitive or affordable.

Get a salt scrub! Candles, essential oil, dead sea salt...OMG! Your skin will be so soft and rejuvenated. Get after a 60 minute massage, so lymph system is already draining, circulation is flowing, etc., thus exfoliation is more than just topical, but a few layers deep----detoxifying.

Sincerely,
Francis
PS Be sure to tip very well, these people work so hard.

Dear Frank, Thank you for observations and nice comments. We are very dedicated to wellness and that of course, means cleanliness! Agreed: salt scrubs are indeed fantastic and though we work at the spa, we also use it…we give each other massage and salt scrubs to further maintain our own health as well. This also gives us a chance to view service as a customer, so we can stay in tune with our clients. Sincerely, Tanty
