Shane’s Magical Hands: Originally from South Africa, I have had many types of massages in South Africa, all over Europe and in several of the US states. Finally I found the one massage therapist that I wish I could take with me on every trip. Shane is friendly, yet professional and has a natural way of calming me down right at the onset of the session. The really cool thing is that I can request what type and intensity of massage I would like for that specific session. For example an intensity of 7/10 is already ‘deep tissue’ for me while an intensity of 3/10 is a relaxing Swedish massage. For stress and trouble spots, I request an intensity of 5/10. Shane remembers my therapy preferences. At the onset of each session, he asks if I have any trouble spots that need special attention. He also senses other spots that I was not even aware of until he starts working them. Sometimes I just need to spoil myself with an aroma therapy session. My favorite aroma is Valor, which opens up the senses, followed by Frankincense. This combination usually transcends me to a mystical mountain forest. For sinus relief my choice is Eucalyptus. I recommend these magical hands to anyone who wants to feel good about them self. You definitely will feel a better you.
Great experience. Great deal. I travel a lot, and was in Memphis this past week. A friend recommended Shane Rasner Massage and his $50 First Time deal, so I gave it a try. Of all the massage businesses I've been to around the world, Shane Rasner's was the most visually appealing of all. Felt like I was getting a massage in a Victorian estate rather than a massage parlor. This made it very easy to initially relax, then Mr. Rasner did the rest. His technique matched the quality of the space, and I quickly fell into a deep relaxation. Not only did my muscles/body feel better afterward, but Mr. Rasner noticed specific spots on my body where I had been carrying extra tension, and pointed them out to me before I even brought them up! Very impressive. Likely because he is also a licensed dentist and has extra knowledge on the connection of all parts of the body. Well done. I will be a return client next time I pass through Memphis.
I called on a Tuesday and made a appointment for Thursday for my wife and I at 2 pm, both one hour massages. We showed up as scheduled and were told that they were busy and check back in an hour. We went and got a bite to eat and came back at 3. We were then told that we could only have half hour massages because they had appointment customers at 3:30. That kind of pissed me off but I was nice and went along with it. They sent me to one room and my wife to another and as I was getting ready the manager came in my room and told me i had to pay before the massage. I have never been asked to do that before. I felt like they did not trust me to pay afterwards. I would have given them 1 star but the massage was good. I normally tip 50 percent over what the asking price of the massage is for a good massage but it seemed awkward paying up front and then tipping afterwards so I didn't tip. I am going to try them again and will repost.
I moved to memphis about a year ago, and since I've been here I've been searching for a good massage therapist. Massage after massage all disappointments, until I met Charlene. Being a massage therapist myself I appreciate a good massage and I was starting to give up hope on therapists in Memphis. Then, I met Charlene. The studio was really nice and comfortable and Charlene was amazingly nice. After asking what was going on, it seemed as if she knew exactly what I needed and what I'd been searching for. She combined relaxation and clinical techniques in a very fluid and efficient way. Being very knowledgeable about the human body and knew exactly how to work each muscle she touched. I came in feeling terrible, and left feeling absolutely amazing. I recommend that any and everyone that appreciates a great message, contacts Charlene Gaffney asap!
I recently visited Memphis TN and had the good fortune to schedule a massage at Shane Rasner Massage. I have had massages for years and I subscribe to Massage Envy in Dallas. I must say that the experience at Shane Rasner Massage was excellent. I spend many hours sitting at a desk and I tend to have lots of tension in my upper back and shoulders. Shane was able to identify and release tension unlike any experience I've had before. The pressure was firm but never painful and the end result was that I was more relaxed after my massage than I have ever experienced. I wish that Shane lived in Dallas so that I could schedule regular massages with him.
Fantastic local massage. It took me a second to find the place, but now that i've been there once I'll never have trouble finding it again. The massage was wonderful, just the right amount of pressure, she spent a great deal of time ironing out my problem areas, and just did a great job of getting me acclimated to the massage experience. I would highly recommend. I went for the table massage but I'm certainly interested in trying the Thai massage. I'm familiar with yoga, and I think stretching with someone who is this knowledgeable would be fantastic. Please give this local business a chance. You won't be sorry.
One of my all time favorite places for massage. Very clean, non rushed and a little different meaning not your traditional massage place like massage envy. Lin is awesome and uses hot towels, etc to help relax the muscles after massaging them and offers a shower scrub before the massage to loosen up and get clean if you've had a long day. While she is petite in stature she is a powerhouse and can give you a quality deep tissue massage. Her attitude is friendly, sweet and just a great servants attitude. Lin is gifted and beautiful inside and out so don't miss this great therapist. Thanks Lin!!
The massage therapist at the spa was simply fantastic. She used great pressure on my tight muscles while being a wonderful detective in locating all of my 'crunchies'. The hot towels simply complimented the massage that was not hurried. She has a reasonable rate and I can say that I definitely got my money's worth and will be returning. Sometimes you don't know what to expect, but knowledge, attitude, and a caring demeanor are hard to beat. I would recommend Qinhai Spa to anyone who appreciates a wonderful massage combined with a fantastic attitude.
Tom has been taking care of me for 3 1/2 years now. I was originally going to another therapist, and it seemed like every time I went I had a new person working with me. I really like to build a relationship with my therapist because they remember my trouble areas, and really just provide a much more quality massage. If you are looking for a quality massage in an extremely relaxing atmosphere you can't do any better in the memphis area. I've searched high and low, and after one session at tom pitmans he secured me as a client forever. TOP NOTCH!!!!!!
I went to see Shane when I was visiting family and friends in Memphis and can't wait to see him again! He's extremely professional, knowledgeable, and cared about my health goals for the session. He also had some good recommendations for things I can do at home to help ease some of the tension in my back. It was definitely the best massage I've ever had and Shane is my new go-to guy when I'm in town!
