I was able to book a last minute appointment for some pain in my shoulder and Alyse (?) listened and focused on the area. The massage itself was GREAT. I slept comfortably after waking for a few nights in a row and woke up without any soreness, either.

But, overall, Alyse was very personable and likable which contributed to the relaxing massage. She is is strong, but gentle and even when warned when she start using really strong pressure, I was able to tolerate it without feeling like i was being tortured.

I've had Tiffany in the past who I also really like. Both are terrific, and based on availability, would love to have either again.

The massage was great. But ginky seemed rushed before the massage and did not know how to check me out.

Loved the massage. Bad reaction from the facial that hasn't fully recovered the day after (no way of knowing) and towels and pressure too rough for my skin type. Also because care is not taken when hair is wrapped (smoothed down before wrapping) for facial, can't go out in public afterwards.

Jose was great and spent a lot of time with me educating me on many different things to help my recovery.

I had a great massage with Stephanie. She took great care in working out my tension but also making this relaxing. Thank you!

I came in with bad neck and head pain, and my massage therapist listened carefully to what I wanted to get out of the massage, and proceeded with an excellent massage that alleviated my pain (and was quite relaxing as well!). Excellent!

Interestingly, my first massage here ended up being with a different therapist than I was originally told.

Leslee took decent care of me and while I appreciated her insights into my mechanical imbalances...she was honestly a bit off putting. On the intake form, I highlighted the areas that were most bothersome to me on the diagram and also checked the line that explicitly said to focus on those areas. Instead, I was given a full body massage and even told that those areas weren't as tight as I thought they were.

Leslee's technique was more or less adequate. Not the worst I've had, but also far from the best. My shoulders and neck could've used far more extensive work and I was annoyed that just minutes were spent at the very end on the latter.

While I'm sure that the other massage therapists may be more receptive to their clients and more effective in their technique, this ultimately was an average session at best in terms of therapeutic value.

The scheduling of the appointment online was pretty easy and the Kanna Spa staff followed up immediately to confirm the details of the appointment. The staff was friendly and the massage therapist was professional and skilled in various massage techniques. The ambiance is very relaxing and comfortable. Overall a great experience.

Tiffany was kind and accommodated an urgent need (a pulled back muscle) with a same-evening appointment. She is a highly skilled, intuitive massage therapist. Strong, yet gentle; persistent, yet appropriately creative and measured in her approach to problem areas, she gives a deeply healing massage experience.

Kanna Spa itself is a clean, well-appointed oasis, and Tiffany has poured her loving spirit into creating a sanctuary of healing.

The entire process, from scheduling to the appointment day, was very seamless. We were scheduling my entire family at once and then had some changes. The office made it all easy. On the day of the appointment, the doctor managed to do my exam and my toddler's exam at the same time, making it efficient for me to get us in and out. The front office is also very cordial and a pleasure to work with.
