Nothing but the best treatment – I have been treating my pain at the Feel Better Center for almost a year now. I have only treated with one therapist in particular, Serena, because after my first experience with her I have always requested an appointment on her books. She is kind, compassionate, and extremely warm and professional. My best experience in the city with massage therapy after living here for a few years now. I'm a little disheartened to read some reviews complaining about the decor or whatnots, honestly if a therapist can make me feel better physically, I wouln't care if I had to get a massage on a rooftop somewhere!! It really is all about Feeling Better.. and always has been for me.
Best massage ever!!! – I've had many many massages, and this one was by far the very best. Given by Jill, who actually listened to what I asked her to concentrate on. I woke up with a stiff neck and it felt much better by the end of the session. She also did foot reflexology, which I've had done before and wasn't impressed with (seemed just like a foot rub). This time it was more like a pattern on my foot, which felt amazing.
I think the name says it all - Feel Better - because I certainly felt better!
Great massages for a great price! – Massage therapists are very thoughtful really seek to make you comfortable. Prices are very affordable, overall experience WONDERFUL! :-)
GREAT no-nonsense massage – I have been going to the Feel Better Reflexology Center for over five years now. This place is great. Through the years I always managed to find a therapist that gives GREAT deep tissue massages. Most recently Jill is amazing!! But, it can sometimes be a little tough to get an appointment with her if you wait until the last minute like I almost always do ;) they almost always squeeze me anyway, if they cannot, there are other phenomenal therapists there as well.
Regarding the negative posts about the atmosphere.... Yes, this on the 2nd floor of a home-type building in the city and near/above the spice shot.. but, that is exactly why I like it. Parking is simple. You don't have to deal with the snooty, high-priced, overrated non-sense that comes along with other massage places in the city. FBRC give you personalized attention. It?s welcoming and comfortable. They don't rush you in an out. They TRULY care about how you feel... Before and after your session.. and overall as a people.
If you want a great massage without having to deal with a lot pretension - go see Jill!
Thank you for those kind words! We certainly appreciate your choosing our company, when there is such a variety of Massage locations here in Philly. We shall continue to try to give our Best. Afterall, as a client you pay for a service, hence it's our obligation to provide deep tissue to help you "Feel Better!" That's our motto here at the Feel Better Reflexology Center.
I always feel better – I'm not sure what that other person was thinking but none of my experiences have been like that. They are very pleasant but you can't please everybody. Especially an angry customer. In any case, they have gone the extra mile to make sure my needs and concerns about the parts of my body that bother me were taken care of. Thanks guys. See you soon.
Fantastic Reflexology, Excellent Massages – I feel better just knowing that Feel Better Reflexology is in the neighborhood. Where else can you get such wonderful massages, such fine-tuned and health-giving reflexology treatments, at such affordable prices? No place that I know. The couple who run this service-oriented establishment are amazingly friendly and caring. They do not try to impress the customer with fancy atmospheric tricks. The massage--and their caring before and after, giving you lots of time to relax, water to de-toxify and music if you want it along with the massage--is all the atmosphere you need.
There are three massage rooms, all with cozy outfittings and sparkling clean sheets. Although it's right in the middle of the city, on Spring Garden Street right above Penn Herb (handy), there are NO city noises, just a wonderful little hideaway.
In this overblown world, where everything is overpriced and you hardly ever get full service for what you pay for, FEEL BETTER Reflexology is the exeption. Whenever I feel stressed or rundown--as just happened, since I'm on deadline and felt myself getting too rundown--I take myself over there. Thank goodness they are here--I don't know what I'd do without them. P.S. I got my first draft in on time, feeling revived after two sessions.
Better Yet – This is one "Best Kept Secret", that should not be kept secret. I've been to many spas and different health centers, by far, "Feel Better Reflexology Center" truly lives up to its name. There is a very pleasant atmosphere and the staff are even more pleasant. Most importantly, you do "Feel Better" after leaving the center. They have an array of services and what else????? THE PRICES ARE RIGHT! I've recommended it to my family and friends and now I am recommending it to you. BF
Thank you Nydair for your imput!
We try to provide sessions which will prompt our clients to return. We offer more affordable prices, especially during this recession because it's not easy for people to spend for Massage therapy. But of course, it's very beneficial for them. Massage & foot reflexology help to eliminate future health related issues & potential high bills. So we are here to assist & have thus reduced our rates!
POSITIVE VIBRATIONS & AMAZING MASSAGE/REFLEXOLOGY – Located right in the heart of northern liberties above penn herb company at 2nd and green street. i have experienced over 50 massages at this amazing center. the feel better reflexology center is family owned and operated as well as adding a few great massage therapists in the mix. there are no silk robes provided, no corporate dressed employees, just extreme down -to -earth energy received from the moment you arrive! i read some of the other reviews and was shocked at how one described the enviornment. the center is clean, warm and above all...relaxing. one client posted that the sheets were mismatched, this is called recycling and 100% recommended if not approved by many! another review i noticed said there was gross smells, these fragrants that one will smell come from many different natural oils that each individual therapist uses...olive oil, lemon grass oil,brazilian nut oils, and so many others. another post described the decor as if a fifth grader had decorated..actually, the beautiful woman who co-owns this center spends some of her spare time designing an array of different creations in which one can see throughout the center. her creative flare is abundant and much appreciative. northern liberties is a neighborhood of electic and creative individuals. the feel better reflexology center is the perfect addition to our neighborhood. the therapists are friendly and complete continuing education hours so that you the client can receive the best massage ever! if you are looking for stark white sheets, silk robes, corporate lad employees, expensive prices, and chemically infused oils being used on your largest organ(skin), and computer screens that generate a hello, perhaps you need to look at other massage centers, because the feel better reflexology center is unique and bottom line,YOU LEAVE FEELING BETTER!
Local, Unpretentious, affordable massages – I've been to Feel Better Reflexology about 5 or 6 times in the last couple years. (I've had massages at many different places in the city) and their massages and therapists are mostly on par with other comparable treatments in the city. (although you have to be specific about exactly what kind of work you want to have done, they're also very big on foot reflexology, I don't find it does much for ME personally)
Also, they have raised their prices somewha in that time- for the shorter half hour massages and 55 minute massages. I tend to go to Feel Better for the convenience as I live in the neighborhood and because of the affordability. However, if you compare to other spas in the city the prices are now almost the same (except for the longer 2 hr massages, those are a great deal!) For those who care about such things, the place does not have much style or a calming ambience. It appears to be a weird doctor's office stuck in a color-challenged time capsule. The furniture and decor is seriously lacking and dated. The equipment and sheets are also a bit budget and old - and you feel like you are at someone's house instead of an impeccable spa.
There is no one here to offer you a glass of lemon-basil infused water, or to change in a provided bathrobe. Also, it tends to be slightly noisy because the facility is located on the corner of Green and 2nd you can hear a lot of the car traffic outside. They have a lot of deals with packages and for returning customers, so if you tend to get a lot of massages and don't care for the frills/ambience of a regular spa, this place is for you.
REALLY FEEL GOOD MASSAGE – FEEL BETTER....IS HOW I FELT AFTER MY MASSAGE....I REALLY FELT MUUUUCH BETTER....THE THERAPISTS WERE FRIENDLY AND THE MASSGAE WAS GREAT...THE ATMOSPHERE WAS GOOD AND THE ROOMS WERE CLEAN..THE MUSIC RELAXING... I WOULD DEFINTELY RECOMEND MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY
