“This moderately priced spa creates an intimate experience for all of its guests. One of the many gems found in East Village, a massage here will leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. The strictly run establishment eliminates the middle man by avoiding a front desk and superfluous music in the lobby. Massages last exactly 90 minutes and there is no tip accepted. A hassle free spa: the way of the future.”

“Emma is the best massage therapist I have ever met. Being extremely active, since I am a personal trainer and a yoga teacher, sometimes my body becomes tired and borderline injured from overuse. After a session with Emma, I always feel better and refreshed. She’s so great I always recommend my training clients to her and they always love her too!”
– Nicole Smith, CPT, YT, TYM, Personal Trainer/Yoga Teacher

“Emma’s massage therapy is top-notch. She is detailed in her work, intuitive, knowledgeable about and well versed in many modalities of bodywork, and knows how to make a client feel extremely comfortable and welcome, while maintaining a professional demeanor. She has been my sole massage therapist for a few years now, and I feel it is important to say that I have some challenging issues to tackle. As an ex-dancer, I have chronic injuries that sometimes resurface, I have a scoliosis that causes imbalance in my spine and feet, and, being a body worker myself, I have struggled with some overuse injuries as well. Emma is able to address all of my issues with great care, while also managing to relax me – which is a feat in itself, given I am the mom of two teen children, one who has special needs. It is great to be under Emma’s skilled and healing hands, and very important to me to have this special practitioner taking such great care of “my special needs”. I trust her work implicitly.”

“Emma is my #1 massage therapist! Frequent travel for work + constant lugging of equipment ensures that she is extremely necessary in my life and I am so grateful that she is! Having always sought after good, strong + experienced massage therapists I can honestly attest to Emma being the absolute best! Her approach is skillfully strong while being extremely attuned to the needs of the body and its thresholds. Combined with her lovely, warm manner this makes her an absolute godsend.”
