Cecil is a gifted and very special practitioner and human being. Just being in his presence is healing. I have been to him over the last several years many times for numerous issues including musculoskeletal pain, serious injuries, digestive issues, sleep issues, anxiety, and general upkeep of my health. I broke my ankle and foot last year and Cecil was an indispensable part of my wellness team. My doctor was floored by my progress and said I did "wildly and phenomenally well." I have to give much of the credit to Cecil. I also had some horse back riding accidents some years ago which have left their impact in my body and Cecil has just been so helpful cleaning up the fallout from those injuries. I have been a bodywork practitioner, myself, for going on 20 years now and I have availed myself of a great many treatments by a great many practitioners. I am a veritable bodywork enthusiast. And Cecil is truly one of the best acupuncturists and craniosacral therapists I've come across. It is a boon to find someone who does both of these therapies at all, let alone with the level of mastery which Cecil brings to them. I completely love him for all the help he has given me over the years. Thank you Cecil!!!

I began to see Cecil after suffering from years of Intestinal Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and I had almost giving up ever finding a solution. Through a combination of acupuncture, dietary advice, supplements, qi gong movements, and sacro-cranial therapy over the course of a few months most of my symptoms had subsided. Cecil empowered me to take an active role in improving my digestive health, teaching me ways to prepare probiotic drinks (beet kvass) and help find trigger foods that caused me pain. I highly recommend him to anyone with digestive issues. He is knowledgeable, patient, a great listener, and a superb healer and advisor. His prices were reasonable and the results were unbelievable. Thanks to Cecil I enjoy life much better and have learned so much about my body and digestion in general.
5 stars for my masseuse. She did exactly what I asked, her hands felt fantastic and she obviously knew what she was doing. I had the swedish relaxation massage and her strokes were classic swedish strokes with no wierd squeezing or pokey moves (my pet massage peeve). She was also wonderfully silent and didn't try to comment on my health or muscle tone or tell me that I have problem spots - another pet peeve! I was able to just relax and enjoy - the best kind of massage. It is a decent mid-range spa, no frills but clean and calm and well run. They were extremely punctual and I didn't have to wait at all to start my massage. Staff was nice. The massage rooms were pleasantly furnished, comfortable and the equipment was good, with low lighting and soft music. I loved it!
YES!! OH YES!! THANK YOU!! So, I love, love, love this place! I read about it right here on YP when in search of a good place for a massage. I recently had my neck/left shoulder go into a spasm. After much debate I decided to get a massage. I then found Happy Valley and took a shot! The woman was amazing! I was only able to go for half an hour, but it was well worth it! I left feeling like jelly! That was something I was more than willing to get past for the greatest massage I've ever had!This is definitely a place for a great deep massage! And the prices are beyond reasonable. I think I may even take up my therapist's advice and start making regular appts! FANTASTIC!!
Just came here a few days ago to have my first ever back massage. I know, i know. I shouldn't have waited so long to try one of these.. So I went with my friend without an appt on a Friday afternoon and were able to get 45 min massages in. The woman massaged me was as smiley as my boyfriend's masseuse did too, i think she did a good job. I am not really good at relaxing and all that, but she must've done a good job because she applied pressure that was just good enough and as she went on, i fell asleep - did one of those jerking kicks and was immediately embarrassed.. All in all we both had good massages at this place.I wouldn't mind coming here again.
This place is awesome. I went yesterday for my first Hot Stone Massage and I feel like a new person. I can definitely tell the difference after this massage and my shoulders/neck and back are loose and ready to rock. I opted for the hour massage because I needed some time to cool down after a crazy weekend. I was the only one there at the time so it was quiet, and I definitely felt like I didn't have to focus on anything by relaxing. This had me sleeping like a baby last night. Eva and Lucy really know what they are doing, and I can definitely tell that she released some blockages in my back and hips that have been bothering me for a while now.
Great Service. I got exactly what was advertised!! This masseuse is beautiful , classy , totally pleasent, and took her time and truly helped me to unwind after a week of being stuck on airplanes for hours on end and sitting in uncomfortable chairs for meeting after meeting. I paid for a 90 minute session which actually ended up being a two hour session( no extra charge). My back was in terrible shape ( spasming and the whole nine yards) and she was more concerned with assisting me then rushing through our session. All I can say is THANK YOU. I would highly recommend her without reservation and will certainly be a repeat client!!
Let me first say that if you're getting a deep tissue massage and your muscles don't ache afterward, then your massage sucked. My regular lady was out of town and I was desperate for some back work, so I decided to come here before heading home.My massuese massaged me into jelly in 46 minutes. She really paid attention to where in my shoulders needed the most help and really worked them over. I started getting sore within hours and had some bruising over the next few days, but my back felt sooooooooo much better. It was a real life saver. Clearly the place is set-up pretty basic, but that's fine by me.
have a huge exam coming up, and needed to relieve all the stress and tension I was feeling so I could just chill out. And I learned about this place from a friend. So, I booked an appointment the same day, and I have to say.....Wow. This place is awesome. From the moment I was greeted by the uber-friendly receptionist, to the actual massage; it was just incredible. man was my girl strong! She did everything from working my knots out to rolling me onto her knees and stretching me out (NEVER have had that done, it was pretty awesome). I highly recommend this place, and it's hard not to come back .
LOVED this place. Got a $50 for 1 hour massage. Eva was great! The Thai massage was so AMAZING! All the people there are so nice, great ambiance, plus it was super convenient for me because it's a few blocks up from Rockefeller Center. Woke up this morning and my body is feeling so so good! I would totally recommend it, and look forward to going back. One thing I would suggest to management is offering a package for returning customers, since it is on the pricey side but their service is so good...I would love to come back to some sort of award program. Otherwise, great job ladies!
