Let me ask you something... How many of you have booked a deep tissue massage, but what you experienced was more like soft, cuddly kittens "making biscuits?" That was me ALL THE TIME in well over 10 different states. As someone with chronic back pain these weak sauce massages were just not working for me with the amount of money I was throwing down. Well folks, allow me to introduce you to my FAVORITE monthly self-care ritual...the Deep Tissue Massage at Body of Needs. The owner, Kevin, or any of the other massage therapists will start by taking you into a clean, cozy room decorated with birch trees (you will see this theme throughout the place) and ask you exactly what hurts, how much pressure you need, and even ask if you like to talk during your massage. Once you have been fully tenderized and you are feeling like you have a brand new body, you will get dressed and your massage therapist will come back in to give you some H2O and to also discuss how much tension you are lugging around on a daily basis as well as if there are any alterations you would like to make for your next appointment. This really is a hidden gem folks, which is likely why I am the first review, but the experience is nothing but phenomenal. Side note: If you want to be a bit extra, go for the Needful Things Ritual package, which includes a scrub that will make your skin smoother than a fresh jar of...well you get the point.

I just had my first massage here, from Kevin, and if I were a rich girl I'd be in every week. Booking an appointment on their website was super easy. When I arrived, I asked the receptionist if I could split my hour into half reflexology (which is what I had signed up for) and half neck/shoulder work. He said absolutely, we can let the therapist know what we need and they can help customize. I was soon whisked into a cozy room with a heated bed by Kevin, who confirmed that indeed we can do whatever I needed. Before starting, we discussed what I wanted him to focus on, and we were off! All throughout, Kevin was very communicative to be sure the pressure was right for me. Afterward, he shared some recommendations that would benefit me next time. All in all, it was a great experience, and the next time I treat myself to a massage, it will definitely be here!

I just had a massage here and had to immediately share how strongly I recommend this place. It is outstandingly professional. From the moment you walk in you will feel welcome and relaxed. The staff are calming and courteous. I felt completely comfortable at every single point in this process. The staff take the time to get to know you and your expectations/needs before your massage starts. Kevin has a really wonderful place here and I can not recommend Body or Needs enough.

This was my first time trying Body of Needs and I will most certainly be back! I had a Swedish Massage from Emily and it was wonderful! It was my first time having a heated blanket which I thought was a nice touch, and they have a white board in the room to take notes with you ahead of time which I really liked as well. Emily let me take deep breaths to smell the lavender essential oil infused lotion which was extremely relaxing. She worked out some real knots and I felt amazing after! She met me after with some water and we went over everything on the board again which was super helpful and beneficial. I would definitely recommend the Body of Needs, and especially Emily!!

Hands down one of the best massage therapy spas around!! From the moment I stepped inside, I was greeted with friendly faces and such a calming atmosphere. After looking through their detailed menu, I was paired with a therapist for a deep tissue massage. And she did amazing.!! Nadiah really worked out all the troubled areas I had come in for and I walked out feeling refreshed. Very professional, very inviting, 10/10 would recommend

Hands down the best massage experience I've ever had. The atmosphere is clean but not sterile-feeling, welcoming, and calming. All of the staff I interacted with were incredibly warm and helpful. You can tell how much they value their customers' experiences, consent, and being responsive to customers' needs; from the forms you fill out, to the conversations before and after the massage - they're meticulous about making sure the customer is comfortable and getting what they need. Kevin gave me an amazing massage. I'll certainly be back.

Jeff is very professional and knowledgeable! My massage was perfect and he made me feel very comfortable and would always double check to make sure things were still going good. He was very thorough before and after regarding what exactly my needs were and what I wanted worked on. The receptionist was also very helpful and welcoming! Overall had a great experience!!

This is an exceptional spa, that draws exceptional talent. It is tough to find experienced exceptional therapist, Body of Needs definitely has some talented employees. The beds and rooms are state of the art, and beautifully decorated. The bed hugs your body well, if you use heat you might have the therapist go down a notch from what your used to. The bed they use is incredible, I am into gadgets so the therapist put it through its paces for me. Changes the experience for the better. I parked in the Melilli lot which is only a 3 minute walk away. The receptionist was very pleasant, and presented me with a warm towel to clean my hands. I completed a health questionnaire which was well laid out, and gave me the opportunity to give the therapist the information they needed. The massage was incredible, the therapist found my problem areas, the pressure was perfect, the work was efficient, and thorough. I strongly recommend Body of Needs, if you see me on your way in, say hi, definitely putting this place on my schedule.
