- When I went in for my appointment, the staff was very friendly and accommodating [sic], and the massage/facial were just as of quality if not better than a luxury resort… – uclagirl22, Citysearch, Highland Avenue location
- The room was dimly lit with really relaxing music and a heated massage bed. It smelled terrific and I was comfortable right away. I had a one hour swedish massage that felt like it lasted for two hours. – Chandra S., Yelp, Pier Avenue location
The Massage Spot
In his early days as a massage therapist, Sean Struxness was struck by the stark contrasts in quality between high-end and low-end spas, noticing a large gap between the two. He founded The Massage Spot to fill that gap, partly because he no longer wanted to mow the gap's out-of-control grass. Though it forgoes the locker rooms and showers that full day spas may offer, Struxness's mini day spa doesn't skimp on the tranquil atmosphere, as it features flickering candles, soothing music, and a relaxing zen area. The service menu isn't lacking, either; The Massage Spot's team of professionals performs haircuts and deep conditionings, nine types of facials, spa pedicures with aromatherapy soaks, and Western and Eastern styles of massage therapy.
