Whiplash...Cured!!!! – About a year ago, I'd been in a car accident and has a mild case of whiplash. I'd been to a chiropractor several times trying to treat it. After about 2 months of chiro appointments, someone recommended getting a massage to try to relax the muscles. I searched online and found All Body Basics in Johnston. I scheduled an appointment with Brian, explained the accident and the pain and stiffness I still felt in my neck and shoulders. After an hour and a half massage I could tell it was already better. Brian was able to work out the tension in my muscles that eventually let to me no longer having any more pain or issues. Brian is professional, courteous, and proficient in deep tissue massage. I've since recommended him to my wife and I've gone back recently for another massage.
Need A Great Massage??!! – Both Brian and Jordanna are very professional and good in what they do. Brian has done the majority of my massages and always is careful to tune into any concerns or sore spots I might have. I have been going monthly to Brian for massages at least 4 years now.
Waxing Enjoyable?? (no, but minimal pain, great results!) – I've gone to Jordanna for waxing for over two years now, she's professional, quick and thorough. Her skills and personality make waxing into something I no longer dread, and her highest quality waxes and attention to detail minimize the breakouts and ingrown hairs I used to suffer through. I just thought that was part of the process, but not with Jordanna! Also, her prices are quite reasonable, especially considering that she offers the best service around.
I've referred numerous friends and colleagues to Jordanna and Bryan, and bought my boyfriend a massage for Christmas. He said it was the single best massage he ever had.
I enjoy the family business end of All Body Basics, and feel like the personal treatment I get from Jordanna makes her services truly enjoyable. Yes, even waxing.
Following Jordana – I titled my review this way because I have followed Jordana for several years (I can't remember how many now but it has been awhile.) The first time I went to her for a facial, it was in a large salon and I didn't know her. She gave me the kind of facial i needed. I have somewhat problem skin and she knew how to work on it to start clearing it up. I have had many compliments since I started. Before that i had used medicine prescribed by a dermatologist but I stopped needing that. When she moved to another smaller salon, I moved with her rather than stay with the salon. When she and Bryan opened their own salon, I came along, too. They provide such a comfortable welcoming atmosphere. I always feel renewed after I leave. I would never go anywhere else. I plan to start treating myself to Jordana's body massages one of these days.
PS. I started a review earlier and it was sent before I wrote it - so please disregard that one and read this one.
Great Business! Super couple! – Ive starting going to All Body Basics 9 months ago, and I could'nt be happier. The deep tissue massages are the best I've ever had. Bryan is very professional and has good advice to help with sport injuries I've obtained. By far the most reasonable best massage I've ever had. I highly reccomend him!!!! I did'nt want fluff and a spa experience I have regular massage to help my body with immunity, flexibility, injuries and over all well being. All Body Basics is the place to go!!
Also Jordanna his wife! So kind, friendly and professional. By far the best facial I have ever received. And I can honestly in the past 9 months my face has never looked better. She is real and not pushy I have my facials done once every season like she reccomended while other salons would push me to have one every other week. Her facial have purpose ecspecially the extraction facials. Again don't want fluff and waste money relaxing, I can do that at home. Jordanna works on my trouble areas makes great reccomendations and is by far the best esthetician I have ever known! I have referred alot of friends and family! This business is a huge assest to Johnston!
Great massage for improved running – I am a regular runner, running about 3 times a week over a five+ mile course. Since following Bryan's advice and going for the deeper muscle massage - concentrating on the legs, I have experienced reaching a whole new level in my run times.
I have now had two one-hour massages over the past month of this type and have recorded a succession of personal bests (PB) in my run times. I have reduced my previous PB by more than 5 minutes! As I log my run times, I have plenty of data to compare with.
These deep muscle massages have numerous benefits for me: increased flexibility, less fatigue, reduced cramping in the legs and feet, and less soreness in the hamstring area. I run faster and with greater comfort.
I am now converted over to this type of massage. By the way, it should be noted that this type of massage works on the tight muscles where I have my problem areas and is, of necessity, a bit uncomfortable at times.
Bryan is careful to monitor my comfort zone so that I can get maximal benefit (deeper massage) without too much discomfort.
I would recommend Bryan as a massage therapist to anyone and especially to someone who is working out and needs help in achieving that next level of performance.
By the way, my wife gets great massages from Jordanna, Bryan's wife, also at All Body Basics.
Great massage, great value – I started going to Bryan for massages a year and a half ago as my treat to myself for starting an exercise program. To tell you the truth, I was a little nervous about going to a guy since I'd only had female massage therapists before. But Bryan was great right from the start--very professional and great at making sure I felt 100% comfortable. I have really benefitted from the deep pressure massages he can give, and I find myself less sore, less stiff, and sleeping much better when I get regular (once/month) massages from him. And you can't beat the value: $50 for a one-hour massage (as of Sept. 2010), which is much less than I've paid for other 50-minute massages in the Des Moines metro area. Highly recommended.
Super People – All Body has the greatest people working their. Not pushy like some salons are, more relaxed and very up to the needs of your personal wellbeing. I have been going their for a year now and always gone home feeling great. They both talk to you and geniue care for you while you are their. Other massage businesses cannot compare to the service and price, very reasonable for everyone. I would recommend this business to anyone who needs body relaxing like never before to try this place out.
