Carla gave the best massage ever! Carla gave me one of the best massages ever! I've had a personalised massage about 2 weeks ago. Carla was extremely polite and asked questions about my occupation, medical conditions and any specific needs. I work in an office job and also run a fair bit. She was spot on with the pressure and did some stretches for my arms and legs to help with my running. She also gave me advise on areas to stretch on a regular basis.<br><br>I love the little touches they have aded, like heated blankets, hot towels, soothing music, scented humidifier and dried fruits at the end of the session. The place is extremely clean and very cosy. The price is a little bit more but it is great to have a professional LMT with some extra nice touch. Absolutely worth it!

Couples Massage I was looking for a place that does couples massages, and I found this place on Yelp. I sent an email saying I was interested in booking a massage for myself and my girlfriend, and received a response shortly after with all the details for booking the massages. The room was very nice (dried fruit and drinks provided at the end), and both Rob and Carla did a great job. It was a great experience, and we will definitely come back soon.

Prenatal Massage I went to CityTouch for a prenatal massage close to the end of my pregnancy. I was very impressed by the clean, pleasant, and warm studio, which was fragrant with relaxing essential oils. My body was achy and vulnerable, but Frances put me at ease right at the start. She was very attentive to my needs and before she began, she asked me about any issues I had been experiencing in my pregnancy, listening carefully as I answered. The massage was exquisite. As I lay on the luxurious heated foam table wrapped in extra-soft sheets, I felt myself drifting into a beautiful dream-like state in which I felt utterly pampered by Frances' firm, caring touch and the swirling scent of essential oils. She performed reflexology, working on my whole body without skimping on any part. She paid extra attention to my aching hips, which I had asked for, but my absolute favorite part was when she worked on my tired hands! Afterwards I felt completely renewed, grounded, and refreshed. I was left to relax and dress with a snack of filtered water and dried fruit, which was a really nice touch and just added to how special the whole experience was. I would recommend Frances at CityTouch to any pregnant woman who needs a bit of attentive pampering and mindful bodywork; don't we all! It is reasonably priced luxury that truly elevates your life and eases your pregnancy.
CityCleanse Body Treatment I received a massage from Rob as a gift and would not hesitate to go back!  He put extreme thought into making me feel comfortable and the massage was amazing.  Rob has chosen all of his products with care. He spent time talking to me about what was bothering me body wise. After speaking with Rob for only 5 minutes, it was evident that he was passionate about his career. I left CityTouch with a clear mind and a relaxed body.

Alleviating back pain Rob was extremely professional. He went over the specifics of what ails me, locations, then worked extra on those areas.  In my case the lower back, which he did relieve.  Personally thot his work on the feet and neck and back of the head was really great.  He sent me a follow up note with suggestions as to exercises to help.  Overall very thoughtful and professional, highly recommended.
Off-site chair massage event I was fortunate enough to be able to book CityTouch for an offsite corporate event - Rob &amp; his team at CityTouch LMT were recommended to me and was I happy! Rob was incredibly easy and professional to work with both before and after the event for billing and paperwork.  Most importantly, Naomi, the therapist that came to do chair massage was AMAZING. <br><br>Naomi arrived what I consider to be on-time (read: early) for the event, completely prepared and with a huge smile on her face.  She quickly set-up and was ready to massage!  For the entire time of our event she had a huge smile, a long line, and a calming presence.  The reviews of people coming out of the chair were glowing - and multiple people asked to contact her for their events!  <br><br>If you are looking for chair massage for an off-site event, I couldn't recommend CityTouch more.  They are professional, a pleasure to work with and wonderful therapists.  As the event organizer, I was happy; the client I was producing the event for was happy; and my guests who got massaged were most certainly the biggest winners in this whole scenario!
Same day appointment fulfilled I booked a last minute massage online with Rob.. And it's by far the BEST massage experience I have had in the city. Rob is friendly and knowledgeable, and he spent time to talk to me about massage techniques, and offered info on different types of massages that could also help me. The heated table is a HUGE plus...As well as the post-massage dried fruits. :) Rob seems to truly care about his clients' well-being, and isn't just about getting through the appointment and then moving onto the next customer. I truly enjoyed my experience and will definitely be back!

Out-of-towner appointment I found this location through Yelp, as I was visiting from out of town.  My normal search parameters are to put where I'm staying and go to within 1 mile and "top rated."  I booked the package of a massage, reflexology, and castor oil cleansing pack.  There were many openings available and booking was a breeze.  I got detailed instructions via email on how to enter the location.  Rob greeted me warmly - he is very energetic, informative, and friendly.  He explained what I could expect from the massage, asked if I had any problem areas or requests, and also inquired if I had any questions.  I felt very comfortable.  Everything for the massage, exfoliation, castor oil pack, and reflexology were great!!  I can't remember very much because I zoned out.  :)  Rob also sent a follow-up email with instructions and a thank-you note.  I would definitely return if I'm in the city again!

CityCleanse Body Treatment This is a long overdue review... I received a massage from Rob back in August and I cant wait until I can go back again. I had the CityCleanse℠ Body Treatment massage. While it was not what I expected, I LOVED it. The exfoliation glove scrub seemed strange as it was done dry, but it really felt SO good to have my whole body scrubbed. I also loved that he sanitized his hands and my feet before and after massaging them. I always get grossed out by having my feet massaged then my head and face.<br><br>I will definitely be back, once I get some more gift certificates!
Massage for a new mother I came to Rob four months after having a baby in search of general tension release in my back. The experience was so pleasant throughout. I had a wonderfully restorative 90 minute massage. Rob included some reflexology, which was a surprising highlight. He is skilled at what he does. In addition he is thoughtful, kind and asks the right questions to be able to provide a personalized experience. He even went out of his way to rearrange his schedule so my sister and I could make back to back appointments. The office is simple but comfortable and serene. My recommendation of CityTouch is wholehearted! Thanks Rob!
Gift certificate massage I received a massage from rob as a gift and it was fantastic. As someone that works out a lot AND sits at a desk all day I asked rob to focus 100% on my back and he was super accommodating.<br><br>We talked before about what was bothering me and after about what he noticed that could help my back pain. He also gave me a list of stretches to tell my trainer.<br><br>My goal was to relieve pain and muscle knots that had built up over time and he did. He also has great hospitality skills and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend rob and plan to go again soon!
Deep tissue massage I just arrived in Manhattan a week ago and had been stressed out with my big move to the city. I was in dire need of a deep tissue massage and that is when I met Rob.<br><br>Rob is a hard working, soft spoken unassuming gentleman. He made sure that my experience was flawless and it really was. His environment is calm, serene, modest and immaculate. Far from the madding crowds of Manhattan, Rob's office is isolated and sound proof. A small haven perfectly situated in Chelsea and very convenient for many living in Manhattan.<br><br>As a crossfit athlete, I needed Rob for a very deep tissue massage and he nailed it! My back and shoulders were sore and Rob released a lot of the tension. He worked relentlessly and I felt so much better after I had left his premises. The next day, that's when I felt the vast difference of his work, and finding a great massage therapist is a huge endeavor. And I'm very lucky that my search is over. <br><br>Thanks Rob! see you next week :-)
Massage for a new mother Rob was amazing and after carefully listening to me explain that my lower back has been quite painful since giving birth to my daughter 8 weeks prior Rob took special care to address this area of discomfort. The room was very comfortable and relaxing and I felt great when I left. <br>As a mom of two kids under 3 this place will be my new place of refuge to have Mommy time and take care of myself.
Good customer service I had a wonderful experience at CityTouch Massage! I was in desperate need for a massage and discovered City Touch via Yelp! (thanks to everyone for their comments). Making an appointment online was a fast and effortless process- i was lucky enough to make one the day of.<br><br>From the minute i stepped into the office, Rob offered his personalized attention. He did a very thorough consultation to understand my pain points so he could best maximize my 60 minute session. The room was clean and offered a perfect setting for a relaxing massage. Rob really focused on the areas here i was having pain, using the right level of pressure. I left feeling complete relaxed!<br><br>An added touch to the experience was the follow-up. Rob reached out by email a few days after to check in on how i was feeling from the massage and offered a couple of stretches i could use to release tension in the areas i was focused on. <br><br>All in all a wonderful personalized experience. I will definitely be going back and recommend it to others!
Excellent experience, from easy booking to feeling pain-free afterwards. Rob is a caring therapist who showed genuine care from the moment we met. The room was very clean, perfectly cooled off on a hot New York afternoon, with wonderful organic products (water, dried fruits, and even body oils were all natural). <br><br>I had a 60min massage and look forward to another. There were no aches afterwards and Rob even followed up with some advice over email on various stretches I could do.<br><br>Reasonably priced, excellent experience - I definitely recommend it.
Rob did a great job with my full body deep tissue massage. He is very welcoming and receptive to what the client is seeking.<br><br>He did a small consultation in the beginning, had me fill out some paperwork and asked me a few questions. The room was very relaxing, some natural light and soothing music.<br><br>The massage was excellent. I like very intense deep tissue massages and he definitely was able to achieve the pressure level I wanted. And it is great that he checks in with you to make sure the pressure is okay.  The oil he used smelled amazing, it was a very light scent. He did use quite a bit of it though. I don't mind that, but I definitely needed to take a shower afterwards!<br><br>I 100% would book another session with Rob!
This was the best massage I have had in NYC!! I am a professional dancer and I have a back injury, so I have been looking for the perfect intelligent deep tissue massage. I am so excited I finally found it!!<br><br>Beautiful room, super clean, and amazing service. I did not have to wait and I felt at home as soon as I walked in.<br><br>Most important I felt that my injury was addressed and worked through, not just blindly massaged. Rob is my new massage therapist and I am so grateful!!<br><br>5 stars!! I highly recommend!!
I honestly wish that I could give Rob TEN STARS! Rob is one of those rare practitioners that understands deeply how to perfectly blend the clinical aspect of massage, the deep intensive healing aspect, with the luxurious spa-like nurturing aspect.<br><br>I was really in dire need of TLC all over my body after an intense week of physical labor. I found Rob on Yelp and made my way to his serene and lovely space. His attention to every sensual detail (scent, sound, soft lighting, room temperature, etc) made me feel at ease right off the bat.<br><br>Little did I know I was in for a real treat. And all I had to do was relax and receive the loving care that Rob offers.<br><br>If you are wondering if you should splurge on his CityCleanse Body Treatment, all I can say is, it was worth every penny. EVERY PENNY.<br><br>I promised myself that every time I come to NYC for a job, I am going to have another treatment with Rob! I can't wait!
Hot Stone Massage Review of Rob It was my second time at CityTouch. The first time I just had the Personalized Massage, which was over a year or so ago. I was having neck, shoulder, and whole back problem. I really needed it. The massage was so relaxing that I just have to come back again. <br><br>I got a gift certificate for a Hot Stone Massage. I've never tried it before. Since my first experience was so great that I didn't see anything wrong with it. I was right!!! It was a bit weird at first, but after a while you won't be thinking "I'm just being rubbed with stones". You will start think "how good can this get!".<br><br>First you lay on a table that's heated. Rob will start off with a short Personalized Massage and then move on to using the Hot Stone Massage. It is like the personalized massage, but so much better! It has more pressure (maybe because it is alot harder? than the hands) and the heat from the hot stone loosen the pain that i was having on my back. <br><br>I am definitely coming back again. Might even bring my boyfriend and try the couples massage.

Medical Massage I had a fantastic massage from Rob at CityTouch. I made the appointment to address a flare up of tendonitis in my elbows and overall tension in my shoulders and upper back, and Rob did not disappoint! The environment was inviting and relaxing, booking an appointment was really easy, and Rob was great about asking lots of questions about my painful spots before we started. He also gave me some ideas for exercises and stretches to help keep the pain away and followed up a few days later to make sure I was still feeling all right. I will definitely be back!

Couples Massage I had to update.. Its been almost a year since my last visit. I took my girlfriend for a couples massage on valentines day. The aroma therapy, the heated tables, the high end treatment for less than high end prices and the caring presence of the staff. For Valentines day they gave us these PHENOMENAL chocolate penguins in a beautiful box. <br><br>I count the days till I return!

High standards for massage As a Canadian where massage is highly regulated, it was such a relief to have a licensed RMT in NYC give me one of the best treatments! I told Rob the sessions had all the comforts and joys of a pampering spa with substance! I can never get enough pressure, but Rob had the perfect touch and worked out all my knots! Can't wait to go back for my next treatment! The online scheduler was too easy and he follows up with personal emails to his clients to ensure they are feeling great the days following. Amazing attention to detail!
Therapeutic Massage I work standing up all day, have a pretty stressful job, and to top it off I hyper-extended my right shoulder lifting weights.  Since I don't like painkiller drugs, I've been looking for relief from the aching as it slowly heals.  I went in to see Rob today, and boy am I glad I did.  <br><br>First off, the space is clean, quiet, and smells awesome.   I'm not a big touchy-feely, aromatherapy-ish kinda guy, but I really liked walking in to a space that was so welcoming and calm.<br><br>Second, the actual massage room was bigger than my own bedroom (!) so I didn't feel that cramped edging-around-the table thing you sometimes get with massage studios.<br><br>Third, like I said I'm not a harp or sitar or New Age-y music kinda guy; the music was quiet and very unobtrusive and more like calming background white noise, which was perfect.<br><br>Rob himself asked very specific questions about what I like and what I needed, and he paid attention; I like very firm, deep pressure and my shoulder needed special attention, and his massage was absolutely on point.  I could actually hear my joints releasing, which meant he was paying attention and really getting the knots out.<br><br>I had just come from the gym and had drunk about a gallon of water; embarrassingly I had to pee in the middle of the session but Rob didn't bat an eye - he had a robe for me and in a flash I was back and the rhythm wasn't lost at all.<br><br>He uses an oil with a blend of ginger and...other stuff ( I forget what exactly) and it was awesome, not greasy or gooey at all - and a couple of hours later I still smell good  :)<br><br>All in all, this was an extraordinary experience, and exactly what I needed.  I'm relaxed and my shoulder is more mobile with much less pain.  Thanks, Rob, and I'll be back.

Amazing people and amazing massage My boyfriend and I received fantastic massages last week from Rob and Maya. From the time I made the reservation to the time we left after our massages, this was a great experience. Rob quickly responded to my inquiry for appointment openings and followed up on the phone. When we arrived, Rob and Maya greeted us, took our coats, offered us water, and immediately made us feel comfortable. The place itself is very nice - very relaxing, perfect temperature, smells great. The beds are comfortable and heated! The massage itself was the best massage I've ever gotten, and my boyfriend says the same thing about his. Both Rob and Maya seem to have a great intuitive sense of exactly where needs work. It's evident that they both love their jobs and go above and beyond to provide clients with a relaxing experience from beginning to end. Rob followed up a couple of days later and even provided me with some tips for stretching a problem area. I recommended CityTouch without hesitation and will be back! Thank you, Rob and Maya!
Experienced massage critic Truly a fabulous expert massage by Rob at CityTouch. I have been lucky enough to experience massage in some of the best places in the world and I can tell you that he creates an equivalent experience in a modest location.  He has a lovely little space with just the right relaxing vibe. Excellent amenities with the massage- and an excellent understanding of subtly using aromatherapy if you want it.<br><br>But most importantly- he can give a true deep tissue therapeutic massage for those who need that skill.  Highly impressed and highly recommended.
Rebecca W
Beautiful Space Rob was fantastic.  I emailed him late on a Friday and had an appointment to have a massage by Saturday am.  His studio was beautiful as well as relaxing and the natural oils he used were great!  He even followed up a few days later to ensure my trouble areas had improved!  I highly recommend Rob and next time I am in the city I will be getting another massage from him!

CityCleanse Body Treatment I thoroughly enjoyed the CityDetox Body Treatment with Rob.  His approach is very holistic and is right in keeping with the needs of one's body.  It isn't just a massage, it is dealing with all the issues a person has going on with them.<br><br>Looking forward to my next appointment!

Best Customer Service I'm a big fan of massages, and often take advantage of deals to try new places. Well, let's say I don't need to look further. Rob is the consummate gentleman, has a wonderful, calming demeanor and is the best therapist I've ever had. His technique is not only spot on, but he has soul that comes through when he is working on you. I can't describe it. You just have to get yourself over there and experience it for yourself! You can thank me later :)

High standards for massage Overwhelmingly satisfied with my experience at CityTouch. The online booking is convenient, the office was small but comfortable, and Rob was extremely courteous and helpful. Not only did he target the spots that I wanted him to, he carefully dodged spots I asked him to avoid and even went out of his way to provide examples and insight on reflexology practices that he felt were appropriate for my situation. While the prices are a tad higher (maybe normal for NYC, though), the service and technique are well worth the few extra dollars. I would recommend Rob to anyone in the area and plan to go back for additional massages in the future.
Amy T
Attention to detail There are some times that simplicity trumps luxury and this is definitely the case with City Touch. Rob focuses on some great details--the crystallized ginger and lavender eye mask really made it great.<br>The heart of it though is that he is an excellent masseuse. He relieved tension and even focused on my feet because I'm a dancer.<br>I will be returning and also recommending this place to anyone who asks.
David P
Longtime client I have been getting massages from Rob for a few years now, and was happy for him when he opened his own practice. Rob has a terrific energy about him, and I have always found his massages to be both highly effective and very relaxing. I lift weights and have an active lifestyle, and Rob's massages are an excellent counterbalance to that. He always asks what I what like to focus on, so each massage is tailored to whatever is going on with my body that day. The CityTouch space is very quiet and relaxing, and the essential oils and reflexology that Rob employs enhances that experience. The online booking process is very convenient. I look forward to my sessions at CityTouch.

Massage Experience I've been to various high-end spas in NYC with luxurious amenities and unfortunately not-so-good massage therapists. With that being said, I was pleasantly surprised with my first visit at CityTouch. You won't get the big spa amenities there, but what you'll definitely get is a masseur, Rob, with a personalized touch. He pays attention to details with a consultation before your massage, a place to store your jewelry &amp; iphone (while it charges!), warm clean sheets, nice chill music (without bird and whale noises) complimentary crystallized ginger and slightly chilled water. The decor was especially warm with the mostly candlelit rooms and pleasant scents of eucalyptus and cloves. <br><br>During the massage, Rob paid attention to areas that needed work or had previous injuries. I wanted medium pressure and I got just that, but he wasn't afraid to go deeper for areas that really needed it. He also realized I was congested and made a point to use massage oils scented with specific oils which will help me breath better through my nose.  Surprisingly, it worked and by the end of my 60-minute massage session, I was comfortably breathing through my nasal passages. Afterwards, Rob consulted me about areas that were tense and types of stretching exercises I can do at home between massage sessions.<br><br>I would recommend Rob to all my friends.  He's a pro at what he does and think other masseurs/masseuses in NYC should perhaps learn a bit from his methodology.
Frank P
Couples Massage My girlfriend and I both went here for a couples  massage. She was able to book easily online. I had been having back pains so she recommended I go to Citytouch with her. I was reluctant to go as I am not normally one to enjoy getting touched by strangers, especially other dudes, but I have to say there was no funny business going on. It was the best experience and just what I needed for my back! Excellent service!!

Couples Massage Every time I visit NYC, I treat myself to a massage as part of my vacation. This was my first time at Citytouch and so far this is my favorite massage therapy in NYC. The atmosphere is very clean, comfortable, and relaxing.  I was amazed at how soft and warm the sheets were. The pleasant aroma, dim lighting, and soothing music enhanced my experience. I also liked that they had docking stations where you can charge your phone. Rob is extremely professional and listens to what you want.  Most therapists I've been to either give too much or too little pressure, but he delivered the perfect pressure to my achy muscles. I also had reflexology which was amazing! Rob was great at explaining things when I had questions...definitely well trained in the profession. I left feeling stress free and rejuvenated.

Couples Massage My wife and I had wonderful massages from Rob and Amandine last weekend. The whole process was superb. From my first interaction on the phone with Rob when making the reservation, I could tell he was a kind and thoughtful human being. He welcomed us warmly when we arrived---the place is inviting and soothing from the moment you step in. (The phone charging station which we used while getting the message was a delightful touch.) The massages themselves were fantastic. Both my wife and I wanted firm touches and Rob and Amandine delivered. The 60 minutes flew by fast; we would consider a 90 min massage next time. Both us of left greatly relaxed and in buoyant spirits. We will be back.

Bliss I was lucky to have had a wonderful massage with Rob this week thanks to a SpaFinders gift card from my favorite nephew. Rob is a consumate professional whose attention to details and the ultimate comfort of his clients are paramount. He was attentive to my needs and flexible in how he approached the massage due to certain injuries I've sustained over the course of my life. Rob also has a very good understanding of aromatherapy and reflexology which greatly enhanced my massage experience. I felt pampered, relaxed, well-taken care of and in good hands - literally &amp; figuratively. I very much appreciate Rob's thoughtfulness and had a wonderful experience which I hope to repeat. I would highly recommend the very gifted and caring Rob Gonzalez to anyone considering having a massage.

Personalized Massage As I tend to suffer with tense, tight neck and shoulders, I am no stranger to massages and have had my fair share of good and bad. I'm happy to report that the whole experience at CityTouch was a delight. From the beautiful, clean and peaceful room to thoughtful added touches like a place to charge your phone (all chargers ready and waiting!) while your massage takes place. Rob was extremely thorough in asking questions about problem areas before we began and offered some great advice which he followed up with by email after. As for the massage itself, it was pretty perfect, firm but not painful and catered for my needs. I quite literally felt a huge weight off my shoulders when I walked out the door. Very impressed all round and will be going back.
I think the 60 other amazing reviews have pretty much covered it, so I'll just give the highlights:<br><br>-Rob is not only a fantastic masseuse, but he legitimately cares about giving his clients a great and stress-free experience<br>-He takes notes and refers to them when you come in for your next session<br>-He is friendly, straight-forward, kind, and clearly very knowledgeable<br>-The online booking system is convenient and extremely easy to use<br>-The room he uses is calm, clean and comfortable<br>-The price ($125, inclusive of tax an tip) is reasonable, especially considering the high quality of service<br><br>I have recommended one friend to him, and bought a gift certificate for another.  After 10 years of bouncing around to different masseuses all over NYC, I've found my place.
What an amazing experience!  I found Rob on Spafinder after I received two gift cards for Christmas.  I've had swedish massages, but since I had enough on the gift cards, I decided to splurge for my very first hot stone massage.  I'd wanted to try it for years, and I was definitely not disappointed.<br><br>I arrived a bit early and only sat for a couple minutes before Rob brought me back.  He was very personable and attentive and asked me several questions to prep for the massage.  He even has a little tray with every different phone charger you can think of if you want to have your phone charge during the massage!  Which was kind of perfect for me, because my phone had just died.  Just a small touch totally unrelated to the actual massage but that I really appreciated.<br><br>The massage itself was incredible.  Rob made sure to check in early about temperature and firmness and also checked in a second time maybe thirty minutes in to make sure everything was good so far.  Everything was great for me without needing adjustments, but I definitely felt like he was concerned with making sure everything was perfect for me.  It was "my time," as he called it.<br><br>At the end of the massage, he took a few minutes to basically check in, confirm that everything went well, etc.  He even helped me with my coat on my way out!  All in all, it was an exemplary experience, and I really hope I'm able to return!
Walked in today after having a completely stiff neck and some huge stress knots in my shoulders. Rob made me feel extremely comfortable and gave me the best massage I've ever had. My neck feels so much better! Rob really cares about his patients and takes the time to find out their specific needs. Would highly recommend!
I reached out to Rob to inquire about a sports massage and deep tissue massage.  He was incredibly responsive, very informative, and very helpful.  Just so thoughtful and thorough.  I had an hour with Carla and she really knows her stuff!  The massage and advice on what I can be doing better was above and beyond what I expected.  Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Rob was amazing! Super thoughtful and attuned, great hands; lovely small practice where even though it's not one of the big fancy places with lots of spa rooms or whatever, it's super welcoming, comfortable, clean - like being in a warm hug. Thanks Rob for also not judging me while I threw back all the dried fruit post massage. Plus, such a great deal - $125 for an hour included tax and tip! Will be back.
Had an amazing 60 minute couples massage with my boyfriend on Valentine's Day with Rob and Kate.  They each took the time to get to know our bodies and what each of us what looking to get out of the massage or any problem areas we wanted to focus on.  Heated beds, extremely clean rooms, and peaceful music playing in the background.  I would definitely highly recommend Rob and Kate for your next massage!
City Touch is hands down the best massage I've ever had. Rob is incredible. So insightful, caring and extremely professional. Great location as well.  Before each session, he really takes time to get to know your needs, wants and preferences in massage style. I was training for the NYC Marathon and he was the perfect key to success. He focused on my areas of need and helped keep me healthy in training. My best friend and I went in for a double massage and it was so great as well. HIGHLY recommend Rob and City Touch Massage!!! A gift certificate to City Touch was #1 on my Christmas list! Can't wait!
I am so thankful I found Citytouch on Yelp! I was looking to book a massage the same day to relieve me from strong pain in my upper back, neck and shoulders probably due to stress. First of all the booking process was seamless. I was so happy I could book a session online without having to go through the pain of calling a dozen places. I received all the info via email with registration sheet so I could prepare before my session (very helpful!). I arrived a few min before my session and Rob welcomed me with a great smile and the best intentions. He made me very comfortable and we discussed the goals of the session for a couple of minutes. I really feel like home. The place is neat, organized and relaxing. The massage was amazing! Rob is very talented. Exactly what I needed! It felt so good. At the end of the session, I felt it drastically reduced my pain already. I went home and was so relaxed. After a quick shower, I went to bed and slept 10 hours (It never hapens to me) and mostly, the pain was gone in the morning !!! I was so happy and I had a lot of energy at work during the day. Rob then followed up via email to see how I was doing which shows he really cares about his customers. I will definitly book Rob again soon!!
My body was in dire need of a massage and I was tired of trying new massage places- I've done them all from fancy high end places, to groupon places, to cheap non frills Chinatown massage, and none of them quite worked for me. I typed in licensed massage therapist in yelp and found this place. The place itself is warm and relaxing with the dark lighting, calming music, and aromatherapy diffusers. Not to mention there is a phone charging station, the bed is heated, and memory foam bed/face whole. Frances was great she started my session with lavender oils and heating pad for my back- which really helped me relax and loosen up my muscles. she gave me a full head to toe massage and concentrated on the areas I asked for. She also used the right amount of pressure and worked on my knots. She also cleaned my feet before the massage and washed her hands afterwards before moving onto my head massage, which I thought was very sanitary. The session ended with hot towel, dried fruit, and water. I walked out of the room feeling like butter. 125 dollars for 60 min includes tax and tip which is worth it because you are getting skilled massage therapists as well as nice amenities. I think I finally found the perfect place to get a massage!
I have been looking for a legitimate massage therapist for quite some time. I'm so glad I found Marta. We had a conversation before my massage regarding my problem areas and another post massage. The massage itself was thorough and she targeted my problem areas. As for the space, it's quiet and smells nice. I will be a regular client of hers.
My boyfriend and I went for a 90 minute couples massage in August of 2016 and had a great experience with Rob &amp; Manny. The space is very calm, soothing and clean and the quick pre-massage interview gave a good opportunity to discuss with the therapist individual needs and history. The massage itself was awesome, I often want therapists to focus solely on my neck and shoulders but every muscle group that Rob (my therapist) focused on felt awesome, it's clear he really knows what he's doing and identified key muscle groups throughout. If you're looking for a high quality massage, especially if you have specific target areas you want to improve, these guys are great.
I've been to City Touch several times before, but this time I've tried new therapist Marta, for 60min massage. She was great. She listened to what my concerns were, I didn't really have any issues, but wanted her to give more attention to my lower legs (my fave part). After the massage, she was actually able to tell me accurately where my tight spots were (and I stretch every day). I only wish I had booked 90min instead of 60min, as I was completely relaxed and on the edge of falling asleep at the end of my session. I also appreciated that the tip is already incorporated into the price of the massage. I would recommend Marta to any of my friends and I will be back to see her again soon!
Absolutely amazing experience. Contacted Rob late on a Saturday evening while heading to NYC after searching other places, based on their Yelp reviews. Within minutes of a phone message and text, he was able to make time and coordinate a couples massage for Sunday evening--perfectly timed--and made sure every detail was perfect. CityTouch is in a perfect quiet spot of Chelsea, and the studio extremely warm and inviting, and the double room amazingly comfortable and relaxing. Not only did we both feel incredible during and after...for days...the level of extensive follow up I received from Rob after by email, even with suggestions for my tense spots and specific exercises to try, were unexpected and perfect. Great time with Rob and Marta, and will be back. Must visit them!
Just had a top class massage with Frances. As a full time hair stylist I have aches and pains in my shoulders and back. Frances targeted in on these problem areas, she gives a nurturing massage yet with a firm touch. I especially loved all the extras such as the friendly welcome from Robb, heat pads, the extra soft sheets, extra bolstering and dried fruit. Definitely recommend this place !!
I can't rave about this place enough! I get massages frequently and have seen many massage therapists in numerous different states and I have to say, CityTouch and Rob were the best. Normally, I prefer a female therapist, but my neck and upper back were in such excruciating pain that I said I did not have a preference and just wanted to get in asap. Rob was able to get me in THAT day. As I was walked back into the massage room I was pleasantly surprised. The room was large and I didn't feel like I was crammed into some tiny corner that didn't even have enough room for my boots. Rob asked me about all of my preferences (down to essential oils I prefer) and I immediately felt extremely comfortable and at ease with him. The room also had more than enough space for all of my belongings including a little phone charging station set up! GENIUS. Deep pressure is required for my sore achy muscles and boy did he nail it. I felt immediate relief from the pain I had been experiencing for days. He also uses organic essential oils to help relax muscles instead of the terrible icy hot smelling stuff with all the chemicals. The massage was absolutely fantastic, but one of the highlights for me was post-massage. I sat up and there was a hot towel, dried fruit and candles lit for the ULTIMATE relaxation experience. I felt like I was at an extremely expensive high-end spa. The part I was most floored by (and unfamiliar with) was the follow up chat he had with me about what I can do to help my neck and back. He even showed me stretches to do at home and gave me tips about what pillows are best for me. I'm so used to being rushed out of massages as quickly as possible that it was so nice and refreshing to speak to someone who legitimately cares about each and every client.
Beautiful place, friendly team, excellent massage, great value! I made a same-day appointment online (so easy!) based on positive Yelp reviews. When I arrived I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable in the warm, fragrant seating area. Frances, who was performing my massage, was very welcoming when she greeted me. The massage table was SO comfortable - the sheets were incredibly soft! Frances paid real attention to my needs and spent extra time on a sore shoulder. I often find deep tissue massages painful and think of it as the price I have to pay for pain relief later, but Frances both gave me an enjoyable deep tissue massage and relieved the stiffness and pain in my shoulders - it was like magic! I'll be back.
This place is a haven of peace and rejuvenation right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Manhattan! I am new to NYC and am delighted to have a new go-to place for massage therapy. I made my first visit to CityTouch a couple of weeks ago. I was having a rough week and it was only Monday! So that morning I booked a 60-minute massage with Greta for that evening, after work. I walked in off the hustle and bustle of 6th Ave and was immediately welcomed with warmth and professionalism. Marta guided me through a brief intake questionnaire, going over my medical history and what brought me in that day before making a plan and then treating me to the most wonderful full-body, deep tissue massage, and reiki alignment. I'm impressed with how perfect her pressure was and also how right on her instincts were about where to focus her attention. I walked out feeling like a new person! The environment at CityTouch is professional and serene. And I love having the flexibility to book a same-day appointment from my smartphone! Go here.
I was having neck pain and stiffness and needed relief. I saw Ivan and he gave me one of the best massages I've ever had. He did an evaluation first to figure out the origins of my problem and then worked to relieve my pain and stiffness. I started feeling better immediately. He really knows what he is doing. The place is clean, quiet and relaxing. I highly recommend Ivan and CityTouch!
After several sessions, I can positively say I've received some of my best massages from CityTouch. It is a very clean and comfortable establishment, managed by a caring and talented staff that takes the time to evaluate your needs and discuss solutions. Next time you're looking to relieve stress or need a therapeutic massage, I highly suggest you pay a visit to Rob and his team.
I was waking up with a lot of shoulder pain, and came here based on Yelp reviews. Carla was amazing. She first did an evaluation to understand my reason for coming to her, and gave me practical tips to consider to improve my wellness (like a different kind of pillow). The space is in a small office-type building so don't expect a luxury spa feel, but the room was really quiet, clean, and secure. It was honestly one of the best massages I've had, even compared to much more expensive ones at hotels. At the end, Carla gave me time to relax alone with tea and a hot towel. Thank you, Carla!
I think the 60 other amazing reviews have pretty much covered it, so I'll just give the highlights: -Rob is not only a fantastic masseuse, but he legitimately cares about giving his clients a great and stress-free experience -He takes notes and refers to them when you come in for your next session -He is friendly, straight-forward, kind, and clearly very knowledgeable -The online booking system is convenient and extremely easy to use -The room he uses is calm, clean and comfortable -The price ($125, inclusive of tax an tip) is reasonable, especially considering the high quality of service I have recommended one friend to him, and bought a gift certificate for another. After 10 years of bouncing around to different masseuses all over NYC, I've found my place.
What an amazing experience! I found Rob on Spafinder after I received two gift cards for Christmas. I've had swedish massages, but since I had enough on the gift cards, I decided to splurge for my very first hot stone massage. I'd wanted to try it for years, and I was definitely not disappointed. I arrived a bit early and only sat for a couple minutes before Rob brought me back. He was very personable and attentive and asked me several questions to prep for the massage. He even has a little tray with every different phone charger you can think of if you want to have your phone charge during the massage! Which was kind of perfect for me, because my phone had just died. Just a small touch totally unrelated to the actual massage but that I really appreciated. The massage itself was incredible. Rob made sure to check in early about temperature and firmness and also checked in a second time maybe thirty minutes in to make sure everything was good so far. Everything was great for me without needing adjustments, but I definitely felt like he was concerned with making sure everything was perfect for me. It was "my time," as he called it. At the end of the massage, he took a few minutes to basically check in, confirm that everything went well, etc. He even helped me with my coat on my way out! All in all, it was an exemplary experience, and I really hope I'm able to return!
Rob is amazing! I was referred here by a fellow runner and I'm so glad I went. The place is super small and intimate. Rob took the time to really get to know what I needed and then even follow-up when we were done about what he noticed during treatment. I will absolutely be going back!
I honestly wish that I could give Rob TEN STARS! Rob is one of those rare practitioners that understands deeply how to perfectly blend the clinical aspect of massage, the deep intensive healing aspect, with the luxurious spa-like nurturing aspect. I was really in dire need of TLC all over my body after an intense week of physical labor. I found Rob on Yelp and made my way to his serene and lovely space. His attention to every sensual detail (scent, sound, soft lighting, room temperature, etc) made me feel at ease right off the bat. Little did I know I was in for a real treat. And all I had to do was relax and receive the loving care that Rob offers. If you are wondering if you should splurge on his CityCleanse Body Treatment, all I can say is, it was worth every penny. EVERY PENNY. I promised myself that every time I come to NYC for a job, I am going to have another treatment with Rob! I can't wait!
I am a frequent customer at Massage Envy. I was visiting the city for the weekend and decided to give this place a try after hearing about it from a friend. The experience wasn't too totally different from Massage Envy (which was great because it was familiar) but there were a few things that made it just a little better!! Manny was very personable and made me feel comfortable right away with his conversational skills. Not only was he friendly but he also spoke with me in depth about my needs and concerns before the massage. During the massage, it felt like he had 5 hands!! He is very skilled and knows exactly what he's doing. Usually after a massage my skin feels oily and almost wet. However, the oil that is used at CityTouch is very hydrating and made my skin look and feel awesome! It also helped that a hot towel was provided to clean off a bit if need be. I loved the essential oils being diffused all over including in the waiting area! -- The little things were great too: I was able to charge my phone during the massage because there is a charging station in the room for all different kinds of devices!! Also dried fruit was provided with the water after the massage! I will definitely be coming back to this place when I find myself back here in NYC!!!
Carla gave me one of the best massages ever! I've had a personalised massage about 2 weeks ago. Carla was extremely polite and asked questions about my occupation, medical conditions and any specific needs. I work in an office job and also run a fair bit. She was spot on with the pressure and did some stretches for my arms and legs to help with my running. She also gave me advise on areas to stretch on a regular basis. I love the little touches they have aded, like heated blankets, hot towels, soothing music, scented humidifier and dried fruits at the end of the session. The place is extremely clean and very cosy. The price is a little bit more but it is great to have a professional LMT with some extra nice touch. Absolutely worth it!
