My partner and I got a Scout Mob deal on massage services at Urban Body Studios, and I scheduled an appointment with Tai, who was one of the massage therapists participating. I figured, since I got him by default, that I shouldn't have any unreal expectations for a great massage. Man, I could not have been more wrong!! Tai is that rare massage therapist who actually listens to what you tell him, has the skills to put his hands to work, and produces GREAT results. After only three massages, I'm hooked... I work out a lot. I do weight training, and use the machines at my gym to row, bike, and sweat it out on the eliptical. I'm in my 40's, and definitely need help staying balanced with the hard work I put in. I have been to massage therapists many times before, and have finally found someone who can keep me tuned up. Tai has intuitive, powerful hands, and gets right into those difficult areas with just the right amount of pressure, just pushing right up to the point of pain without ever crossing over the line. I stay in a meditative-like state the whole time he's working on me, and don't even have to give him feedback--he's that GOOD. I am so happy to have stumble upon this wonderful, amazing therapist. I cannot recommend his services enough. Just WOW!!

Horrible, horrible, horrible. If you are a masochist who enjoys being barked at in pilates and yoga, this place is for you. I especially like how the instructors ask if you have any injuries and then proceed to bark or mock you for modifying poses due to an injury. Then they come over and crank on you further damaging the injury. And you get to pay an extravagant price for this service. If you love egotistical attitudes, th en don't miss Penolope's class. Shes the leader of the pack. I have never been at a pilots/ yoga or even boot camp classes where I consistently left p- off. unfortunately, I am locked in for another month. Can't wait until it's over ! Then I can go somewhere else. The exception is Scott who is great with Ashtanga. He understands that yoga is also about e mind and it's connection to the body.
