"Manee is awesome! She is very friendly, the place is very clean and welcoming. I will definitely be making this my new monthly massage spot. Love that they have $40 massages on Fridays as well but even without that discount, their pricing is reasonable" -Cindy
"Absolutely wonderful. I have officially made The Massage Shoppe my go-to place. They have easy scheduling and can accommodate same day appointments and their pricing is great. I am an athlete and Manee knows exactly how much pressure to use and can find trouble spots without my telling her anything. In addition, she is kind, polite, and funny! In the winter, the tables heat up, adding to the experience. I am a "forever customer" for sure! I highly recommend them to the valley." -Mary
