John is the BEST! Amazing and unique spa I visited today for a 60 minute Swedish massage and it was outstanding. I loved how cozy and serene atmosphere was. John shows he clearly has a passion for what he does and is willing to help their customers reach their best potential. He was very attentive of how much pressure he was applying and making sure I was breathing correctly. Overall, a great experience and one I would highly recommend to anyone I look forward to coming back!

John is an extremely talented body worker who has the ability to go deep into muscle and not cause pain! Such technique feels great on the body. He is a warm and personable guy who is committed to healing through massage. The best I've experienced in a long time. Highly recommend.

John is a highly skilled bodyworker. He used massage techniques Lomi Lomi and Deep Tissue in perfect harmony releasing trigger points, muscle tension and joint inflammation on my back. I left feeling great and grateful.

I consider John the best thing that Albany has to offer. He is easy to communicate with, has a great space he works out of, and when it comes to the massage, he is incredibly talented. I prefer a deep massage and John delivers just that. His training is evident the moment he gets started and he remains consistent for the duration. Seeing John always makes me feel rejuvenated. The best masseur around.

My neck and lower back were extremely tight and sore. The deep tissue massage really helped my muscles. The massage was very professional and the therapist paid attention to the areas that were very sore.
