I am visiting Austin for July and needed a massage to undo all my stress and start my time off right. I know I can count on SpaFinder to find high quality but this experience truly exceeded my expectations. I scheduled online which was so convenient & easy, I scheduled a 60 minute sports massage and received a call within an hour to confirm & was able to ask more specific questions- how thorough! Tiffany could not have been more accommodating & went above & beyond to satisfy my requests. I arrived to a sleek contemporary lofty space downtown where two staff members greeted me with a smile & went outside to assist with the tricky street parking machine! One even offered to use her own credit card ifine didn't take! I completed their simple form, was offered water & let myself begin to unwind... I was then greeted by my therapist within 5 minutes of my appointment time and he guided back through the dimly lit intriguing space. He asked about my concerns & I openly told him about my neck/shoulder area where I literally have boulders congregating to form a mini mountain range and advised that I do go for monthly massages and have even had weekly treatments but the issue is chronic. Andre began and stayed on this area thoroughly and deeply concentrating on one boulder at a time and as he climbed through my range I knew this was going to Rock literally! No other therapist has ever concentrated so genuinely, interestly and thoroughly as Andre including personal therapists that have come to my home! He spent the majority of time using acupressure to break down my knots and he literally released me! I could not have asked for more! You know when they find the source of pain & you never want that feeling if release to end? I didn't feel that way for the first time as Andre did not stop until he was finished...completely! He went over by 20 minutes without care or concern and despite needing to cover my entire mountain range he still provided a full body releasing me from stress from my toes to my fingers, calves, hips, neck & head. I left levitating and booked again for 2 weeks:) This is a true find in the middle of urban Austin!
