“A little slice of heaven on NE Broadway.
I came here for a Yelp Elite event and was blown away by the sample ashiatsu massage and hydro-facial I had. And I wanted more! I decided to Treat. Yo. Self for my 30th birthday and get a massage.
My husband and I got a couples massage and everything was perfect. First off, let’s talk about their Salt Caves. Hellooo. These are a ultra-relaxing little oasis and the anti-gravity chairs are phenomenal. Even if you’re not into massages, book a salt cave session and read up on all the benefits Halotherapy has to offer.
And if you want the best of both worlds, they do massages IN their salt cave rooms, which is awesome.
My massage was actually the first 60 minute professional massage I’ve ever had. Before you get any work done, you fill out a questionnaire and talk to your therapist about exactly what you want done. Want light pressure? Need to concentrate on a specific spot? No problem. I put light-medium pressure and it was great. Amy was my therapist, and her hands are just magical. Really. Amy, you have magical hands. She was very thorough and also offered me a lot of good advice. I’ve been working out a lot and my body needed some serious attention.
The therapists really listen to what you want and need. Don’t be afraid to tell them if the pressure is too much or too little. My husband had Clay and he loved his massage, too.
Aromatherapy is used during the massage and you can pick your poison: Pain Relief, Rejuvenate, Sleep, etc. You can also add-on services to make the massage your own. Hot stones, cupping, warm cocoa butter, or acupuncture.
The prices are comparable to other spots around town. I think Zama, however, offers a little bit more for what you get. They run monthly specials and also offer free salt cave sessions during the beginning of the week with any massage.
This is a full-service place, so it’s great to come for a whole day of pampering with girlfriends. They do waxing, manicures and pedicures, facials, etc.
Whatever you do, end your session with a glass of champagne and truffles. They serve Missionary’s salted caramel vanilla truffles and they’re aaaaaaa-mazing.
The 3-story house is also a nice touch. It makes your experience feel a little more intimate and relaxing. And, bonus! They have a parking lot in the back. Which I didn’t even realize until my third time here.
Already going to book a session for me and my mom when she comes to visit.
And now, I leave you with 3 words. Treat. Yo. Self!” – As seen on Yelp
