Best Massage Ever – This was my 1st visit with Massage Therapist, Howard and I will keep on coming back. Howard is very calm and professional. Howard takes the time to ask you questions before your message and taylor the massage to your specific needs and level of comfort....I love the stretching, the hot stones, heated table and hot towels. The massage was amazing and I wouldhighly recommend Howard at Village Massage.
The Utopia of all massages... – This has been my 3rd visit with Massage Therapist, Howard and I will keep on coming back. His professionalism and calm spirit helps my mind be at ease and escape from all worries and stress. I like the fact that he is willing to listen and cater to what, where and how you would like your massage to be focused on. It is definitely the Utopia of all massages....I love the stretching, the hot stones, hot towels, exfoliation and, not to forget, the amazing breast massage that sent nerves tingling to all ends of my body; all the way down to my pinky-toes; stimulating all of my happy hormones. The massage overall was breath-taking and I didn't want it to end even after 2 hours....I felt like I melted on his massage table. It took me almost another half an hour to come back to reality and get ready to leave.
one of the best massages I've ever had – I have had about 3 or 4 massages from Howard at Village Massage. I have kept coming back because of his professional, relaxed manner and because of the stretches he creates through my shoulders and hips. I practice yoga regularly (about 5 times a week) and am flexible but sometimes need some help to release pressure in my lower back and hips as well as tension in my upper back and shoulders. The stretches he performs does just that! The last time I went, he performed a full-body, integrative massage that included a breast massage. At first, I was a little hesitant, but Howard's manner and demeanor was perfectly professional and he made me feel completely comfortable. I would recommend this type of massage or any other type (and Howard!) to anyone who's looking for a relaxing, recuperative massage.
Fantastic Prenatal Massage – I recently had two prenatal massages from Howard. I found him by reading the reviews on this website from people who previously received prenatal massages. I had been to several different places during this pregnancy but could not find someone who seemed to feel comfortable giving a prenatal massage. I left feeling no different than when I went in and they did nothing for my back pain. It almost seemed like they were nervous about putting any pressure on my muscles at all.
The massage at Village Massage was the complete opposite. You will leave feeling completely relaxed and your muscles feel like jello. My back pain issue was also temporarily relieved. Everything in the reviews is spot on and I will definately continue to visit Howard for the remainder of my pregnancy.
Very relaxing.... – I can say lots of things but everyone else has said it better....I was here in 2006 as a first timer and the experience was sooooooo good. I wanted to go back many times but just never made it and recently when i really needed a massage, i could not think of anywhere else but here. I had a my second one recently and could not believe just how much better i felt afterwards. Howard i a therapist at heart.....he knows what to do, how and when. I recommend him anytime you need anykind of massage. He is respectful of your desires as you present them .....very professional and concerned about how you feel during therapy. I am a woman,and ven though both times i got a full head to toe massage,i never felt for a minute like i was overly exposed or violated. .....Both times i fell asleep on the table.....thats how relaxed i was. Very good place.....you must go.
My Favorite Massage Ever – Howard, the owner, fit me in right away when I called with severe neck and back pain. He listened to my problem, offered home exercise instruction and recommended therapeutic massage products to use at home. The ambiance was serene and calming. This was by far the best massage I've ever had and the only massage where I felt safe. Howard was open to requests during the massage in terms of areas to focus on and how much pressure to use. I left feeling infinitely better and have another appointment today!
great escape – We went to Village Massage for couple's massage, and we really enjoyed ourselves. My wife has some back pain, and the masseuse Howard spent a great deal of time helping her back feel better. I had Swedish massage and found it very relaxing. My wife talks about us returning in the future to see Howard.
Best Massage Ever – I gotten massages from many other places, several much more expensive, and Village Massage was the best ever. I came in with a throbbing headache and overwhelmed after a stressful day at work. At the end of the massage my headache was completely gone and, I am not kidding, colors seemed brighter. I have had a knot in my right shoulder off and on for the past 4 years that no other massage therapist has been able to get to. Because Howard took the time to listen to me before the massage, he knew exactly what to do and I am now knot-free. He also passed on to me a wealth of professional knowledge about my body and how it works. I recommend Howard and Village Massage to anyone and will most definitely be going back!
Hidden Gem – I received a gift certificate for valentines day and scheduled a message a couple of weeks ago. It was extremely easy to make an appointment and they were even understanding when I arrived a little late. The massage therapist was very welcoming and sat down to discuss what I wanted out of the session before we began. Once in the room I felt very comfortable undressing and getting on to the very nice warm table. He really went above and beyond explaining what he was doing and allowing me to relax- I was nervous as this was my first massage. He was even nice enough to give me some extra time- free of charge- to survey some other techniques to keep in mind for my next massage. I left extremely pleased and i would recommend this to everyone of all ages to enjoy. This is truly a hidden gem of Houston!
Most Relaxing session Ever! – I received a gift certificate to Village Massage for Christmas and just recently went to visit Howard for an amazing massage. Even before calling i checked out the Village Massage website which was extremely helpful in giving me an idea of what to ask for. I've had quite a few massages before...but none even compare to Howard! Howard was great at making me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed the entire time i was there. From the initial conversation of what i was looking for to the final conversation of how i felt about the massage, Howard was extremely attentive and nice. I have never felt so relaxed in my life! The tranquil music, warming bed, and hot stones set the perfect mood for a relaxing massage. Howard performed a great exfoliation that left my sking amazingly soft! I'm not exactly sure what it was, but he gently brushed feather like brushes across my body...it felt amazing on my face! Howard is a pro at what he does, when he would come across an area that happened to be more tense than other parts of my body he was quick to answer my question as to what could be the cause of the extra tense. I left my massage feeling absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Village Massage and Howard to anyone looking for complete relaxation!
