Luved it!!!! – i have never gotten a professional massage in my life.so. i decided to go to mellow massage just to see what they hype was all about.and let me tell ya it was AWESOME!!! i def recommend it.Pricing is great, My guy was Damon he was awesome as well..
Great experience! – I wouldn't call this a spa since it's just set up for massages. There is no locker room, sauna, pool etc so if you're looking for a spa experience, this isn't it. That being said, my husband and I got a couples massage that I thought was fantastic. The actual masseuses did a wonderful job (adrianna and vanessa). I would definitely go back for another massage but not if I wanted a spa experience. Depends what you're looking for but if it's a great massage - this is the place to go!
I Love Mellow Massage! – I have gotten a number of massages at Mellow. When I first went, I was in a great deal of pain due to TMJ and other health issues. My massage therapist Ruben was very caring and understanding. He listened carefully to me about my health issues, and really worked to help relieve the pain. I have gotten a number of massages since from Ruben, he is a great massage therapist. Recently, I have gotten Thai massages from Vanessa. She is great as well. Both therapists are excellent, and I've always left feeling much better. The staff is very friendly. I highly recommend Mellow.
Just alright – I was not overwhelmed by Mellow Massage. The place is frustratingly hard to find, but that isn't their fault. The ambience is relaxing and pleasant. One downside is that I was given a choice over the phone of a female or male masseuse and chose female because I prefer a gentler touch. The morning of the appointment MM phoned me and asked if I minded a male instead. I agreed because I didn't think it would make that much of a difference. It did, however, because the male assigned to me was not at all gentle. Another concern: I arrived exactly on time but was kept waiting almost 20 minutes, with no apology or explanation from either the receptionist or the therapist, not even an acknowledgment that there had been any delay. I then explained some physical issues to the therapist but he did not seem that interested in them and did not seem to customize the massage around the expressed issues. I found him to be rather rough and fast, so I could never completely relax. He never asked any questions during the session; it felt very impersonal and mechanical. At the end of the massage he left a considerable amount of sandy exfoliant on my feet, which seemed emblematic of his lack of concern. I can't say that I felt any better after the session than before and left rather disappointed.
good for pain relief – This was my first time at Mellow and it will not be my last. I have severe back pain that makes walking, sitting and standing painful. My masseuse Ellen listened to all my needs and relieved all of the pain. I feel great after my Integrated Mellow message.
Mellow Massage is great therapy – I had an appointment for today at Mellow Massage. I found it through Groupon and I'm definitely excited to visit again. Be aware that the center is located off Scotts Lane off a small road, so give yourself plenty of time to get there. I called ahead because I was running late (due to getting lost), and the receptionist was very nice and helpful. As I stepped into the office I immediately felt calm and relaxed due to the atmosphere and was introduced to my therapist Maliam. I've had other massages before but nothing like what she gave. She massaged every part of my back and neck and paid attention to areas that I've never had stretched or massaged. Hands down -- the best massage I've had due to her thoroughness and firm pressure where needed. Combined with simple stretches she gave me along the massage I left there feeling like a new person. I will be going back!
You will LOVE Mellow Massage! – I found Mellow Massage in July through Groupon, and I have been back numerous times since then. The atmosphere is very calming and everyone I have come in contact with has been really nice! The prices are very reasonable and the massages have been great!!
I had an amazing massage with Shannon! She did such a great job with my extremely tight back and legs--it was by far the best massage I have ever had.
I finally found a great massage center and I will never switch again!! I HIGHLY recommend Mellow Massage for anyone looking for reasonable prices, a calm atmosphere and a great massage!
Thank you Mellow Massage! – I've had the pleasure of receiving two massages with Shannon at Mellow Massage and will definitely be back for further appointments! Her attention to a client's particular needs is unparalleled. I was impressed by her ability to assess my trouble zones (back and neck) and work through knots/tensions accordingly. I was also pleased that she followed up on my progress from one session to the next, suggesting and checking in about possible at-home treatments (ie: heating pad, stretches etc.). She is very receptive to feedback (more/less pressure) and brings a calm, even temperament to her work. Thank you Shannon!
Average-at best – If you've never been to this place, give yourself time to find it (or just don't use MapQuest), as its tucked away off of Scotts Lane. Given the fact that this place received a "Best of Philly", my expections were high; however, they were not met. My appointment was with Juanita, who seemed to have difficulty remembering my name, as she called me two different names on the two occasions that she addressed me. Mind you, my name is a simple name (IMO), so this really annoyed me. Moving on, she began my massage by chatting with me about nonsense, which i did not feel like doing. She stopped when i closed my eyes because I suppose she got the hint. Otherwise, I honestly believe she would have continued to talk the whole time. I will admit that the massage was incredible; however, I was distracted a bit by the noises coming from upstairs. You can hear people walking around and water running from a bathroom faucet, etc. My point is that this is not an ideal spot for a massage parlor, in my opinion, because full relaxation is acheived by a completely noiseless environment. Fortunately, these noises only occurred occasionally. Upon paying for my massage, I included a fairly generous tip, for which I did not get a "thank you" from my therapist. I left feeling phsyically relaxed because, again, the massage was great, but unfortunately the setting (periodic noises from above) and lack of courtesy and professionalism on behalf of my massage therapist made my overall experience at this place medicre/lackluster. That said, I will not return.
Waste of a Saturday Night!!! – My first experience at Mellow Massage was awesome.
I got a Deep Tissue by Juanita. I left feeling invigorated and totally refreshed. So it was without hesitation that I return for the same treatment.
Sadley, the second time aound, I can't remember the therapist's name. I truly wanted to forget the experience all together. It was less than memorable and I felt like it was a waste of my time and money. My massage felt more like a pat on the back, I kept wondering, "when is she going to start?" Then like that---It was OVER! She didnt even ask me if I wanted Aromatherapy Oil?
Step it up Mellow!!!
As the owner of Mellow, I take great pride in the positive experiences that our clients have when visiting our center. I am sincerely sorry that your massage on Saturday did not live up to the standard that you know and appreciate from Mellow. Your candid feedback, as well as all of the other wonderful comments written by our clients, is extremely helpful in making us a great massage therapy center.
One of the best things about Mellow is that we have a large staff of therapists. Though all excellent at what they do, certain therapists may not be suitable for all clients.
I'm so glad that you loved your massage with Juanita! I'd love for you to come back to Mellow as my personal guest so that we can provide you with the service that you expected to receive on Saturday. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can provide you with a more pleasing experience.
Again, thank you for your feedback. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
