You will love this place. Take your body for a treat. I had the worst pain in my right bicep muscle which was limiting my yoga exercises. Thought I could just power thru it until I met Monique. The place was immaculately clean with a friendly staff that started off my experience on a high note. After a 90 min medical massage I walked out like a new man. Don't make excuses not to go but book an app. and you can thank he later. Thank you again Elliot

For the longest time, I heard about IMR Massage from my best friend Doris and another friend Amy saying its one of the best massages they've had.
After months/years of hearing it from Doris (sounds like a trend nowadays), I finally was able to get myself out of bed and get to an appointment. Took long enough that another good friend of mine, Julie AND my mother whom i had gifted as her b-day present had went before I had finally went myself. I had troubles getting an appointment because it was always a spur of the moment. Typically after a few days of working and sitting in stools all day, trying to make an appointment day before, or trying my hand of luck to see if there's an opening soon. hehe...?
Doris had raved about Elliott for the longest time but I waited so long, that he retired and no longer performs massages himself anymore. For the last few months, she had mentioned Cassandra was the next closest to Elliott's style so that is who i've been keeping an eye on for appointments
Arriving a few minutes prior to my appointment, I was led inside by the receptionist into the Zen Room. Very nice, dimly lit ambiance with relaxing music, scented mist/humidifier with two comfy lounge chairs for you to lay in while waiting for your masseuse. I had booked a Therapeutic Massage at 12:45 with Cassandra for 60 minutes.
Cassandra was SUPER on time and appeared exactly at 12:45pm. After introducing herself and led to the room, she had briefly asked what areas would I liked to be worked on, if there were any that had constant pain, or maybe just a generalized full body massage. Since I haven't had a massage by a professional masseuse in YEARS, i couldn't really decide. Lol. She left briefly for you to undress and store in an ottoman, and lay in the bed. As a first massage, it was decided for a full body massage. The bed gave me a mild surprise. It was the first bed i've laid in that was heated. Almost had that eerie "just used" heat but i figured it was a heated bed. LOL. Originally it felt quite warm, but I guess i got used to it. Maybe next time ill ask her to up it a little later in the massage.
The first song that was playing was an instrumental version of Beauty and the Beast. I had joked with Cassandra saying no wonder Doris liked you so much, first song i hear is Beauty and the Beast ! Then she said Doris listens to 80s pop instead. You can customize the music to your liking as they have pandora. Taeyeon radio? jk jk Relaxing music was relaxing and comforting
She started to focus on my right shoulder, where I had known to have a huge knot that's never been relieved (i've never went to a masseuse routinely, only once every few years LOL) Besides the times she focused on the knots in areas i knew there were knots and areas where i never knew I had knots, it was a relaxing massage. She worked on the right shoulder, then to left shoulder, then left buttock/leg, and right buttock/leg, periodically jumping to lower back between areas.
Maybe half way through to 2/3's way through, she laid a HOT towel over the length of my back, then used something that left a very refreshing and minty feeling. That was really nice ! XD
Cassandra's voice was so soft and sweet, when she told me to scoot down and flip over on my back the first time, i was like... huh? wait did she say something? Ooops ! She places another hot towel at the base of your head and neck when you lay on your back, which later leads to the last part of the massage after she works on the legs and arms again.
The massage on the shoulders and neck at the end was amazing and relaxing. If only that could've been another 60 minutes of just that, I'd be asleep and snorin away !
The massage finished at about 01:45ish (after i turned around after putting clothes back on) so its mildly short of 60 minutes.
Cassandra gave an amazing experience. Very relaxing swedish style but slowly concentrated on knots with deep tissue massage.
I can't wait to return for another massage again ! Highly recommended ! ! My wallet would cry if I went too often though but I am lucky enough to be gifted massages. So at least it won't hurt, yet ! Well i guess the only thing hurting right now is the muscles that Cassandra poked on

I never had much use to get massages until recently. After going to physical therapy and getting massages from my physical therapist I was seeing at that time, it was time to utilize getting back to taking care of myself. I also recently started a job that requires being on my feet and ready roll when things go down.
I again, got lucky and found this spot when going to one of fav restaurants and by trusting yelp. I also have seen and made an appointment with Daniel three times now. What I love about the place, easy to set up an appointment, personable and customer service on point on every visit, and the best part the massages are well worth the price. My first massage was an 30 minute massage, which came out to $30 since I was a new customer. Definitely was relaxing and Daniel got the kinks out and found other areas that needed some loosening up. The session goes by fast especially if your massage therapist knows what they are doing. They also allow you to choose the music you want as well as dim, relaxing massage tables, and have aromatic mist machines to set the mood.
The last two times, let me tell you, THE BEST massage and best recommendation that I have ever received!!! The hour concentrates specifically on the areas you feel are tense and prepared to be spoiled, they actually listen. As a matter of fact, if your massage is that good you will end up falling asleep! After going to the three sessions, I have definitely added the massages to my self care routine.
You will definitely feel refreshed, a brand new person (literally, enjoy my work outs now with more ease and flexibility ). Much props for having a great staff who know what they are doing. Will see you guys soon.

Go see Thomas Steed! IMR is the go-to for sports and injury massages. I've been a customer for almost 2 years now and would not go anywhere else. I highly recommend trying the cupping therapy for tight muscle groups, especially if you are active in sports or exercising. A++!!

Scheduling was quick and easy and Crystal did a spectacular job on a 90 minute deep tissue massage.
