I recently made an appointment with Jai at Ancient Art Massage and Body Work for a 60 minute massage. From the very first moment I spoke with him, I was pleased with his tone of voice and the flexibility he offered in allowing me to choose when to schedule my time with him. I quickly realized that he was not just another business person trying to make a quick buck, but he was genuinely interested in making my experience unique by tailoring it to what I was looking for. Upon arriving to the location, my senses were immediately soothed by the smell of aromatherapy in the air, the sounds of relaxing music and trickling water, and the sight of buring candle light. I was also offered any beverage of choice. In terms of touch, what I will call a "magical" massage, it was specifically focused on the areas I specified before it began. It was absolutely FAR beyond what you would expect at a "trendy" spa; instead, holistic elements of Energy, stones, moist heat, and personalized amounts pressure were utilized. I could say much more, but I will allow you to form your own opinion. Thank you Jai and Maitri to all! Kimberly Orlando, FL

I go to Ancient Art Massage for Reiki sessions. It's a blessing to have found a practitioner that shows compassion and genuine interest in my particular physical, emotional and spiritual state. I leave there unburdened and calm.

This was one of the most amazing massages I've ever had. Jai was my therapist and also the owner so I got top shelf treatment. His techniques and tricks were the best. Very thorough and very strong work. Looking forward to returning again soon.

This was the best massage I'v ever had. My therapist (Jai) listened well and focused on my concerns. I didn't expect the little extras like hot rocks and towels. Very nice touch. The spa is a sanctuary as well. Will return soon. Thank you!!

My wife has been dealing with some serious issues including an occasionally debilitating case of Fibromyalgia for years. Most times she'd received massage in the past the pressure was too much for her and she couldn't relax. Her experience with Jai was far different and not only did she say she actually fell asleep during her massage, but she's had no pain for days now. Thank you Jai. You have a new patient!

I just can't say enough about this wonderful wellness center. I wish I could live there! Jai has been my massage therapist for some time and he is invariably the most amazing artist I've experienced. Always perfect pressure. Even when it feels too deep, he breathes with me and talks me through it. Like magic, the tension releases, with very little residual pain. Thank you again Jai!

Jai is an intuitive therapist and varies your massage each time depending on your needs. The relaxing and tranquil surroundings there are the setting I'd been searching for.

Ancient Art Massage & Spa is a blessing to Central Florida. I've been in the spa business out west for decades, and have been so thirsty for a Holistic approach to the spa experience in Orlando. I've finally found the perfect sanctuary! I recommend you see Jai for massage. He's very strong and thorough, yet soft and wise as well. They also do sound healing meditation with crystal bowls 2x a month which is amazing, as well as other cool events.

I've been here on business for the last few months and have had the pleasure of seeing Jai weekly for massage. I usually have a tough time finding a therapist who can apply enough pressure, and has enough moves and diversity to keep me coming back. Jai is very impressive and I recommend him highly!! FYI their packages make it very affordable.

It's not often that you find a massage therapist who can consistently tune-in to what the body needs. I am grateful to have found Jai at Ancient Art Massage. My sessions with him always leave me with the results my body/mind/spirit needs.

The experience of scheduling your massage shouldn't be filled with tension and rudeness. Jai was not nice when I wanted to schedule 3 clients in one afternoon so that we could carpool the hour long drive to the spa. I have such anxiety about it that I don't even want to go. Not a good start to a "relaxing massage."
