I have had 2 years of chronic lower back pain that was dibilitating. I lost my job, my relationships with my family, friends, and significant others. Surgeons didn't want to do a fusion (where they fuse two vertebrates together so the disk won't move) because it wasn't herniated enough and I would be needing another surgery in 4 to 5 years. They also discussed a disc replacement (where they replace your disk with an artificial one) but the artificial ones have all been recalled since they came out. I tried physical therapy 3 different times and different places for 12 weeks or more and then would move, twist, sit down to fast, or trip and my back would flair up bring the muscle spasms and numbness down both legs. After 2 years of this, I just relied in pain medication which is when I realized I had an opiate problem. Even though I was prescribed 4 a day. I would try to ween myself off and couldn't. I ended up going cold turkey.Then one day, I found this Groupon for personal one in one partner stretching. I figured I had tried everything else so let's give this a shot with very low expectations BUT BOY WAS I WRONG. Andrew (the master trainer) talked to me in the phone for about an hour when I called in to schedule my consultation. He answered every single question I had Plus some I didn't even know I had until he gave them too me. During my first one on one session, he took me way outside my comfort zone (I realize now) by starting me off slow and by the time we were done with that stretch I realized I was moving my legs in ways I haven't been able to in two years. On top of that when my muscle spasms started, he would coach me to breathe through them and not arch my back. He got them to disappear in less than t minutes. Just so you know, I have been admitted to the hospital, gone to the DR, gone to urgent care, complete PT at 3 diff places (as mentioned), and gone to the chiropracter. No one has ever been able to do that even in the hospital with the IV drugs, it usually took 45 mins to an hour to make them stop and if I wasn't on round the clock meds they would come back. Imagine it like the worse migraine ever and then you can't see anything. My spasms were similar to that and they would not allow me to walk. The best part is they teach you how to do it yourself at home if it starts. Andrew has been so helpful and great because I am very guarded when people touch my lower back even slightly. He was very patient with me and kept reminding me to just relax. Then the third session came and he started slightlu pushing on the muscles above and below the bulging disc to get them loosened a little. Let me tell you, I have never felt trustworthy with anyone near my back much less putting pressure on it (I even tell massage therapists my lower back is off limits) and here I am letting a guy I have met 4 times including the consultation putting pressure on it. I am still in shock. SO IN CLOSING, ANYONE AND EVERYONE SHOULD CALL UP AND SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION. TRUST ME IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. EVERYONE THERE LISTENS TO YOUR NEEDS AND YOUR GOALS AND THEN A PLAN IS MADE TO ACHEIVE THOSE GOALS. IF YOU DON'T AT LEAST TRY, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON. AND REMEMBER THIS IS COMING FROM THE BIGGEST CRITIC FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN.From you #1 fan clientKrystal Wein

Ashley Hasty, Owner, is amazing. She's professional, her technique is perfect and she listens to your needs and addresses concerns you may have. Best thing is she's mobile - yay - so not having to leave your home is convenience. After a massage you feel like a rag doll, so relaxed, and just want to nap or shower. Give her a call - you will not be disappointed!
New location very nice. A lot of free parking. Huge quiet waiting area. Fresh coffee. Several therapists available daily. Easy to book appointment. Last minute appts available, walk ins also available. Massage was great not rushed. Very clean cozy massage rooms
Amazingly positive environment, services include personal training, group training, nutrition guidance, nutritional products, food products and supplements and massage therapy. they have a very comprehensive, whole body approach.
The massages are great, especially the deep tissue. My wife loves their facials and highly recommends asking for Nicki.
Worst massage place I've visited. Unscrupulous business practices and marginal service. You're better off visiting the massage places in the mall.
I was a new client last month & arrived early for the free "Hydroluxe Therapy", which I recommend, as it was so wonderful, like nothing I've ever experienced. I was Cynthia's 1st client of the day & received the best deep tissue massage ever! I found the personnel to be very friendly & they didn't pressure me into buying a membership. Before I left I bought a couple of their candles to take home to remind me of how excellent my experience was, the scents are so soft & gentle. I highly recommend this location & definitely plan on returning.
Miranda is an awesome professional massage therapist! She took care of my lower back strain in 1 session! I'm definitely going back to see her!
Dr. Silvanovich was very kind, explained the endoscopy process and the outcomes expected. Nicole made me feel very comfortable and was very helpful in providing options in correcting a stomach issue. Surgery is not always their first choice, so I was grateful to see alternative choices. I highly recommend this practice.
This is for the Massage Luxe on Olive across from TGI Friday's. Made an appt for my husband's birthday present a week in advance, was given specific name of therapist who would be providing the service. Hubby shows up, they do not have him down for the appt, claimed nobody by the name I was given was working there, and did not have any other time available that day. Also gave his appt time to another man whose name started with the same letter of the alphabet. I called to complain after hubby came home very downcast. Got hold of a brainless ditz who didn't know her a** froma hold in the ground. Forget these incompetents, they can't be bothered to properly write down an appt.
