Excellent Massage – I have only received one massage before and that was at an upscale Boston salon and this massage topped that. First off, Tye the masseuse is very friendly and welcoming. You can tell right off the bat that she likes to get to know her clients and how she can help them through massage. I was experiencing some upper back pain in my shoulders and she paid extra attention to that area during my massage.
Not only was the massage great, but the atmosphere was perfect. Dim lighting, soothing music and scents. The studio is very clean and well-decorated.
Post massage Tye sat down again with me to tell me her findings from the massage, which was very helpful. I am booked to go back and can't wait.
Awesome Massage – I just moved to Salem, and have been trying to find a place to get a good massage on the northshore. I tried a couple of places in Salem, and I just wasn't happy with my massages- the therapists weren't really thoughtful, and didnt heed my request to focus on my sore back and shoulders. Last weekend, I tried sankofa on a whim-- I walked by its great local on Washington st and made an appointment the next day. From the moment I met Tye, I knew that this massage would be different than the others. She took the time to interview me about what I wanted to get out of my session, and asked for areas of focus. She was super knowledgeable, and actually LISTENED to what I had to say! After my massage, I felt like a new person. My sore muscles felt much looser. I can't wait to go back!!
Excellence in sports massage – I booked an "emergency" sports massage after experiencing acute muscle spasms from dehydration. Tye Burrell was very experienced and knowledgable in my condition. The massage had me feeling much better almost immediately and allowed me to compete in a 30k road race a few days later. Beautiful sudio is the icing on the cake for this top notch experience.
AMAZING massage!!! – I entered myself in a raffle for a free 30 minute massage while shopping at Urban Elements...and I won! You could say I was surprised and super happy when I heard from Tye that I had won! It was my first massage with Tye (but it definitely will NOT be the last!) Tye was FABULOUS - she was such an informative, nuturing and caring professional. She took the time to talk about her style and techniques prior to the massage and followed up with a post massage summary...the summary was extremely helpful and informative! Also, the environment was very tranquil and soothing! Honestly, Tye is my favorite so far and I can't wait to schedule my next massage with her! I highly recommend Tye for your future massage therapy! Thanks again, Tye! :)
Excellent Massages!! – As an athlete, I've had to have lots of deep tissue massages and body work. Tye has been my favorite so far. For me, it was so nice that she took the time to talk to me before and after my massage, to first let me know about her style and ask me about my problem areas, as well as tell me what she felt after. She also has given me lots of ideas for stretches and therapies I can do at home to maintain comfortable muscles (I always get shin splints and she gave me some advice for soothing them). She definitely makes the massage about what you need as a patient, which isn't always the case with many massage therapists. I've been to lots of spa's where I would never have the same therapist, they would have a specific technique they used for everyone, etc. Tye's massages are based on what your body needs. And she's great about applying a comfortable amount of pressure for you, and focussing on your problem areas with lots of patience and deep muscle work. I've found her massages to really loosen up my entire body, more than any other massages I've received in the past.
Massage Expertise – After years of having deep tissue work to ease chronic pain from three separate injuries, years apart, I finally found comprehensive experience in a massage therapist schooled in the musculature, musculoskeletal, and eastern arts. Tye's extensive medical training as a practicing nurse combined demonstrate her ability to understand the body, combined with her studies in more holistic arts provide a whole-listic approach to therapy. She is very attune to the body working with clients on pressure, sensitivity, monitoring pain thresholds and reviewing progress and therapies the client can undertake out of the therapy room to make the in-therapy session that much more productive and fruitful for both.
I would highly recommend Tye for your future massage therapy needs be they purely relaxation or more intense therapeutic.
Sankofamassage is incredible! – I am a CPA / Treasury Manager. With sitting over the desk / analyzing numbers all day I am always complaining about my back, shoulders, neck... so I frequently go for massages. My massage with Tye was by far the best I have ever had. From talking on the phone / first meeting her - I instantly sensed her warmth and the fact that she really understands the body and how to truly make you feel completely amazing. I think the fact that she is a nurse puts her in a league all her own. When the massage was over I felt incredible and that feeling of utter relaxation lasted for days whereas I am usually all tense again 24 hours later. Also after the massage Tye sat with me and discussed what she had observed. No one has ever gone into that detail with me before so I was surprised. But then she really amazed me, she told me what I can do on my own to help the muscles in my back from knotting. I have followed her advice and I see the difference. In over ten years of massages no one has ever told me what to do to feel better when I can not make it to them. That is just one example of the person and professional she is. Tye cares for you as more than just a customer - she actually cares and takes the time to heal you. I live in NY and am going back next month with my daughter for another massage.
What a great way to start your day! – I have never met such a caring professional and informative massage therapist before until I met Tye! From the start she asked very important questions regarding my issues and followed up with a combination of therapies suited for me. As an R.N. I know the true value in COMMUNICATION when talking about care. At the end of our sessions ( I have already been there 3 times!!!) Tye gives a post massage summary--explaining what she found and areas I need to care for. I feel great and look forward to my next session!
Thank you Tye.
Healing Hands – Tye is a professional, nurturing, communicative massage therapist. I felt welcomed and completely at ease in her intimate, comfortable space. We spoke at length about the issues I faced and she followed through with a combination of therapies detailed to my specific needs. I am looking forward to a long relationship. Thank-you so much!
Therapeutic Massage – I met with Tye for a massage, and immediately felt extremely comofrtable wiht her. She was very thourough and explained everything to me beforehand. It was the deepest massage I have ever had. I felt more relief than I had ever from a massage. She is a healer! I am looking forward to going again and I also plan on sending my husband. It is not just a wonderful treat it is a treatment to better health. Its right down town, so easy to get to. Joan G
