Another great experience!
Esther is wonderful! She has great technique and knows so much about the human body. I felt an inch taller when I left!

Amazing, as always!
After a three hour dental procedures, my neck was killing me and I had shooting pains up the back of my head. Esther was able to fit me in a few days later and the eternal headache I had since the procedure went away! I will be back next month for more!

What I love most about Esther is she is so very professional. You never know when booking a massage these days unfortunately. Her location is sirene and allows complete relaxation during whatever service I have (usually facial or massage). I have used Esther for a variety of massages and am always pleased with the outcome. Mind and muscle relaxation. My last visit was during my 35 week of pregnancy and the prenatal massage was fantastic. The contour bed made all the difference!

Esther is the best massage therapist! She is kind and considerate, always concerned as to my comfort. She is thorough and concentrates on my areas of concern. When I walk in, I hurt and can hardly move without pain. When I leave, I am tired and relaxed! If you have time, use the infrared spa first. It helps to start relaxing your muscles! I highly recommend!

Very Professional & Helpful
My beautician was very polite and helpful when it came to answering my questions regarding skin problems and determining a path for my skincare. She has a wonderful technique with hand massages and her facial treatment almost completely cleared my skin up within a day.
Oct 8, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther did a wonderful job with my facial. She was thorough and was very sweet and friendly. She was also knowledgeable and provided me with a lot of useful information. The spa atmosphere was relaxing and quiet. Overall, my experience was very positive!

Jun 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I used a gift certificate to purchase a massage package with Esther. I had an outstanding experience...as usual. It had been a while since I had seen Esther... Secondary to life being so busy. The massage, facial, foot, and back scrub were amazing and I recommend it to everyone! Esther is such a lovely person too!
Jun 16, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

Best Massage I"ve Ever Experienced!!!
I was given a gift certificate for a hot stone massage and facial by my children for Mother's Day.....It was the best massage and facial I have ever had....I definitely won't be going anywhere else ever again for my massages or facials. This place rocks!!!
Apr 27, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I've been coming to A Place to Relax for many years and have always found everyone to be very professional and focused on my well being. Ester knows her stuff; the best massage I have found. Facility is clean, modern and comfortable. I'll certainly keep coming back.
Mar 29, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Thank you so much Esther for the best massage ever. She takes the time to talk to you so she can give you the best massage technique and pressure for the ultimate massage. Clean and comfortable environment! This is my second time and I have booked my third!
Mar 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had the most amazing prenatal massage from Esther. I'm normally a deep-tissue kind of girl pre-pregnancy so I've been disappointed a few times with prenatal massage elsewhere. Esther did a fantastic job. I felt so good after. I will be a return customer for sure!
Mar 5, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Mauricio is wonderful!
I've had neck & shoulder problems for years. I started seeing Mauricio many months ago and have been very happy. Each month I feel like I walk in with football shoulder pads on (shoulders up around my ears)...I walk out without the pads and feel like I'm 2 inches taller. He's very professional & I highly recommend him!
Feb 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Geena was AMAZING!
Had a 90 minute Swedish massage and it was so relaxing. Geena was very professional and very good. I highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Geena for putting me into another world. I will recommend this place to everyone!
Feb 16, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

Thank you Ester!!
I purchased a groupon for 3 private sessions in the sauna, went online to book an appointment and noticed the only appointments they were booking was for Tuesdays & Thursdays. Unfortunately with my work schedule it wasn't going to work out since I don't get off work until 5/5:30pm i called and left a message and shortly after my call she called me and offered me to come in on my days off Friday/Saturday. I really do appreciate her working around my schedule to let me accommodate the vouchers
Jan 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
The BEST massage ever
Ester & Gina were great. We had a couples massage. It was a lot of fun. It was my hubby first time and he loved it. I have been going to Ester for 5 or 6 year. It a treat I wish I could do everyweek
Jan 24, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Hot stone massage is a must with Esther!! She knows exactly what you need and gets out the tight knots.
Nov 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Deep tissue massage

My father who is 87 years old just went to this place recently, and liked his Swedish massage very much. Esther, thank you for a job well done. You can be sure that he will be back soon.

Deep Tissue Massage
I had Sciatica in my hip, running down my leg to my knee and calf and nothing that the doctor gave me was helping. Found out about a deep tissue massage from A Place to Relax and went in for a 60 min session and all I can say is WOW what a difference. I can actually move around now, pain free. Thank you Esther.
Sep 2, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
deep tissue massage
I have been receiving deep tissue massages from Ester for about 10 months. They are out of this world. If you have sore / tight muscles you need to go see Ester. You and your body will be glad you did. I am a firm believer in deep tissue massages. Good clean friendly professional treatment.
Aug 27, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
My mother and I have been getting the deep clean facials for a few months with Esther and she has done wonders for our skin. she extracts the black heads that other aestheticians don't.
Aug 26, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Wonderfully relaxing oasis in Modesto!
The environment at A Place to Relax is divine- intimate enough to keep you relaxed the whole time! Esther is an amazingly kind woman, and she explains everything for newcomers to the massage scene. Geena is amazing!! Her gentle touch and manerisms helped keep me relaxed from the moment I walked in the door to the second I exited. I HIGHLY recommend getting in on this great business before it becomes too popular!
Aug 22, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is an amazing massage therapist who takes the time to target each area of concern for the maximum pain relief. Whether its migraine relief, sore muscles or discomfort during pregnancy, Esther always delivers, making me feel 100 percent when I leave!!! She is truly gifted and I always leave feeling renewed with a sense of well-being and pain relief. Thank you Esther!!!!
Aug 14, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Mauricio is wonderful. He is wonderful at deep tissue massage, and is able to find 'hot spots' and work them out. I truly recommend him to anyone needing work done who is completely stressed out! Very relaxing and very professional, ladies!
Aug 2, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is the best! I've been going to her for many years and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat. My sister had a deep tissue massage with Amy and so was very happy also. Great place, professional, relaxing.....A++ rating :)
Jul 31, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

May 9, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is the Bester
I have been to many a masseuse but Esther is the best ive been to. Strong and firm, yet gentle and calming. She is technically the best i have been to. knowing how to interact with the muscles is one of her strengths. Not to mention the strength of her hands, when need be. Her feel for problem spots is uncanny. Plus she cares. I appreciate Esther. That's why i keep coming back. That's why I recommend her.
Apr 9, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Massage with Esther
Esther had a very gentle approach but wow - what power behind those arms! I told her I can tolerate deep massage. She worked on a problem area on my back, and the amount of pressure surprised me, for a first time client. But I had no rebound pain the next day, and it was a very positive experience.
Apr 9, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had a massage by Mauricio yesterday and I have to say that it was the best massage I've ever had! He was very professional and made me feel at ease. The hour seemed like 5 minutes, can't wait to return.
Apr 4, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had been gifted a groupon for 3 private infrared sauna session and I finally got to redeem my first session. It was quiet, calming, clean, & peaceful. This was a great, affordable means of "me time".
Mar 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Love the new digs!
Esther is a wonderful masseuse and a wonderful person. The new location is very nice. I like the adjoining changing room.

Nov 6, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Amazing, wonderful, spectacular, splendid, fabulous!
This is the best! Esther gives an amazing massage, with just the right presure. She is able to take my knotted mess of a back and make it feel good again. When I saw her last week, I had a pounding headache that I had since the prior week. When I walked out - no headache!! She is a miracle worker!
Nov 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I absolutely love this place. I had been in the ER with my son the night before and suffered through shoulder pain as I held him, as any mom would do. The next morning I was very stiff with a headache. After a session with Esther, that she squeezed me in, I felt 100 times better. I recommend this place to everyone!
Oct 13, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Amy is new @ A Place to Relax
Had a great deep tissue massage with Amy. Professional & relaxing. Only carries conversation when client starts, otherwise quiet. Loved the lotion able to go & continue on during the day. Great neck & shoulder work :) Recommend her in a minute. 5 stars & 2 thumbs up. Lets welcome her to A Place to Relax & keep her busy.
Sep 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

Aug 26, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is an angel
Esther was amazing, with the back and neck problems I have. When I left I have never felt so relaxed I highly recomend
Aug 20, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Always what the Dr. ordered!
Esther is wonderful and I always leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! I can't say enough good things - book your appointment now, you won't be disappointed.
Aug 15, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I was having back problems and my daughter set up an appointment with Esther for me. This was my first massage experience at age 77, and I only regret I didn't discover it sooner! Esther was great and the massage was wonderful!
Aug 12, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
An awesome massage therapist! Esther was able to accommodate my scheduling needs and was amazing. I will definitely be returning.
Jul 30, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Always a great experience
Whether a massage or facial, Esther is always fantastic! I have been going to Esther for several years and in three locations. This location is close to home for me, parking is great, and the interior space is lovely. So highly recommended!
Jul 19, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
You HAVE to go!!
Wonderful, amazing, relaxing-there just aren't enough adjectives to describe this! I've been going for years + didn't think it could get any better but their new location is awesome! It feels as though you are being welcomed into the home of a dear friend. Esther is the most wonderful godsend. No matter how bad the headache, her magic takes it away! Add to that they they are less expensive than most other places in town and you have a winner!! Try it - you'll love it!!
Jul 15, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is the bomb
I received the gift of a massage and facial. This was my very first visit. Esther did a fantastic job. I haven't been that relaxed in a very long time. I would highly recommend this place and Esther to anyone.
Jun 7, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

I have been going to Esther for quite some time now and I love her! I usually see Esther for the massage and facial package and I have received nothing but fantastic results! The setting is absolutely beautiful and peaceful... Thanks Esther!
Jun 6, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A nice break!

I received this massage as a gift, and redeemed it at 37 weeks. the massage table was contoured for my stomach and was very comfortable. Esther was great!
May 15, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther has the most blessed hands! I had a hot stone massage & facial, best mothers day gift ever! I've been a client for about 5 years, I don't go as often as I'd like, but when I do it's like heaven! I love the new place on Coffee Rd, too btw!

A very calming environment. Extremely personable staff and a pleasure spending time there. The location is not bad but somewhat hidden.
May 1, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
This was my first massage that I have had where I was truly soothed and went into a deep relaxation, and I have had many massages prior. I will definately be going back.
Apr 24, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had an amazing spa package that was very relaxing and soothing with a great atmosphere I would definitely go back again.

Much needed massage!
I really love the new place, it's spacious but still cozy! I had a massage from Esthe. I went in because I was in a lot of pain from various sports injuries. By time I left I was feeling great, she had worked out so much tension knots I had been dealing with for weeks. The room was simple and inviting and sooo quite! As a mother of three I cannot begin to explain how wonderful of an experience this was! 2 days later and my body still feels great & I feel renewed! Thank you Esther!

My first appointment was Esther was wonderful. Very relaxing atmosphere and peaceful. A wonderful massage. Thanks!

Esther is so kind and professional. She makes you feel very comfortable. The atmosphere is conducive to a peaceful and relaxing mindset allowing all tension to be alleviated.

My 1 Hour Vacation
I had the best deep tissue massage! Very comfortable, very professional, and I loved the way you can make an appt. online. I'm recommending A Place To Relax to everyone I know!
Mar 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
My boyfriend and I had a couples massage. It was the first time there for both of us. The staff were professional and very nice. The place is peaceful and inviting. I scheduled our appointment online and it was easy and convenient. The original time we picked was unavailable and Esther contacted me and worked very hard to accommodate us. The massages were great and I will definitely return.
Mar 4, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther and Mai are both amazing massage therapists. I had an hour and a half massage from Esther yesterday (which I recommend over the hour massage) and she knew exactly how much pressure to apply and in which areas. It was exactly what I needed. No fluffy massages here. Esther works diligently and with fluidity to rid my body of all my knots. If I could afford it I'd get one every two weeks. That being said, her price list is more than affair.
Jan 28, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I got a gift certificate from my boyfriend for christmas and it was the best 3 hours! Staff was friendly and professional and Esther made all my pains disappear. The facial was amazing and I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable place to relax.

Massage and eyebrow wax
Very relaxing place. Nice and clean and quiet. I will definitely be back. It was very nice to schedule on-line and get a confirmation the day before. Esther was very professional, was on time and didn't talk throughout the massage. Again, very nice!

Relaxing & Healing
I have been going to Esther Rocha for over 10 years now. Sometimes I go for a relaxing massage and sometimes I really need the knots rubbed out of my back, neck and shoulders. I used to thiink of massage as extravagant but now I know how medicinal it can be for me. I highly recommend Esther and A Place to Relax. Always professionnal and worth every minute.
Jan 3, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
My Husband booked a spa day for me and Esther was so awesome! Both my massage and facial were incredibly relaxing. I left feeling as though I'd gone on a week long vacation! I will be coming back very soon!
Nov 7, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Wow... What an experience!
First time and it won't be my last. Ester is awesome. I noticed that some people put there is traffic noise. There is no traffic noise at all. It's a great location, easy to find and everyone is friendly and welcoming. If you haven't tried A Place to Relax then you are missing out.

my facial was AMAZING!!!
Esther did my facial. I got the specialty $65 package. She made.my skin feel so refreshed! and it was beyond relaxing!! iwould recommend A Place to Relax to any of my friends, and I already have!!
Oct 23, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A Place To Relax = The Place!
This is truly the closest place to heaven. Great massages and great people. Esther gives, by far, the greatest massages ever. Definitely will b back to see Esther again!
Oct 1, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
This is a very professional business and it's obvious that they take pride in their work. My facial was very relaxing and my face looks and feels so much better. I'm going to make another appointment very soon.
Sep 30, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Loved every minute of my Signature Facial!
Esther is the sweetest woman and has a real passion for what she does. She made my facial extra enjoyable by giving me tips and product recommendations. I highly recommend her and plan on going back myself for other services she offers. Thanks Esther!! :)
Sep 10, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
ESTER, HAS HELPED ME SO MUCH SHE IS GREAT AT HER JOB, I WOULD TELL ANYONE WHO NEEDS A MASSAGE TO SEE HER, SHE HAS NICE RELAXING ROOMS VERY COMFORTABLE
Aug 12, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
The atmosphere is very relaxing/calming. This includes everything from the lighting, music, massage table and pillows. I got Spa Package C - a little bit of everything and it was great! Even though this service is a 2 1/2 hr service, Esther gave her best the whole time. She is a true sweetheart with a positive, pleasant and caring attitude who knows what she's doing and pays attention to detail. I would highly recommend A Place To Relax to all of my friends.
Jul 17, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is the best. The facility is quiet, relaxing and tranquil. You will be relaxed to the point of falling asleep. I've been going to A Place to Relax for over 8 years and they are the BEST!
Jun 20, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I'm in Love!!!
I had a really great facial and the BESTEST massage ever! I'm trying to get my boyfriend to go but I think he's jealous. I just couldn't stop ranting about Valarie's magic fingers.
Jun 19, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Just had a great massage with Esther!
I would highly recommend her or Vicki (if she returns from maternity leave). Great place to go relax and be pampered. Esther had great, calming energy and was so friendly.
Jun 16, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is the Best
Esther is a true healer who cares about you. She not only works on your physical aches and pains, but eases all the mental stress. She is also a great esthetician.

my eyebrows really needed some help and i though it was impossible to fix them, but esther did such a great job that i feel pretty! thank you esther for the great wax!

Massage by Esther
Now I know what it feels like to be a millionaire because I feel like a million bucks! Thank you Esther, much needed, I will be seeing you more often! Thanks again. Doug
May 11, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I have been looking for someone to give a wonderful Swedish massage....I found her, yes Esther. Thanks for the relaxing time. I will be back again..
Apr 11, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Great Massage and Facial
I got Spa Package B (hot rocks massage and hydrating facial). Loved both! Esther was very professional and friendly. Usually salons try to pressure you into buying their products, but Esther simply gave me tips on how to care for my skin and stretch my muscles. She did an excellent job on the massage. It seems like she focused more on working out the kinks in my back rather than just performing some "routine" massage. I appreciate that. I highly recommend her!
Apr 10, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A unique experience
Yesterday was my 2nd visit to "A Place to Relax" and Esther did a fantastic job as always. She is friendly, pleasant and very professional. I had a facial done, along with a back scrub and mini foot treatment. I enjoyed all 3! Esther did a wonderful job on the facial especially...I felt refreshed and energized at the end of our session. Esther knows what needs to be done with make your facial look flawless. Thank you Esther! You rock! See you next month :)
Mar 3, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
First time there, got a gift certificate. I got a 90 minute deep tissue massage with Esther. She did a great job and was very sweet and pleasant. I will definitely be back.
Mar 2, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had a deep tissue message by Esther and I walked out of there feeling great! The service is professional and welcoming! I can't wait for my next treatment (which is next week).
Feb 20, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is an exceptional masseuse. The surroundings are nicely decorated and clean. Their website makes it a breeze to schedul an appointment. I highly recommend A Place to Relax.
Jan 28, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Truly A Place To Relax!
I have had many massages here and I have never been disappointed. Esther gave me a Deep Tissue Massage, which really helps relive all the tension in my shoulders and neck. All I can say, If you never had a massage by A Place to Relax, you are surely missing out! Thank You So Much Esther!
Jan 26, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther gave me one of the best massages that I can remember. She worked out all of the tension and soreness and made it a very relaxing experience. I will be back and recommend A Place to Relax to anyone who wants a great massage.
Dec 31, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
You haven't lived until you have had a massage done by Esther! It is the most amazing, relaxing experience ever! I recommend A Place to Relax to everyone I know. Try it, you will not regret it!
Nov 10, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther gave me the best facial ever. I left feeling so relaxed and my skin felt so soft and looked so much better. TOTYALLY RECCOMMEND IT!!!!!! Can't wait to scheldule my next one!!!
Oct 29, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I'd give it ten stars if I could!
Esther is amazing. I felt terrible when I went to see her yesterday and I feel great today! You will not find a better massage anywhere! Can't wait to go back!
Oct 18, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had a great message it relaxed me soooo! much , then I had my first facial and LOVED it !!. I will definitely have a facial again. I really liked it when Esther put warm towels on my face.
Oct 11, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
This was my first visit and after suffering from headaches for years I have never felt better. Esther is amazing!! They truly live up to their name....A place to relax. Loved it!!!
Oct 1, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
No matter how bad I feel when I go in, I feel incredible after seeing Esther! I would go back every day if I could. I've been seeing Esther for years now and hope to continue seeing her for years to come! I've walked in to see Esther with a migraine I've had for days and walked out an hour later with no headache. I highly recommend her! I'd have given it six stars if I could!

For the BEST - see Vicki!
I have seen so many massage therapists over the years and I can honestly say Vicki is the best I've ever been to. I've seen her 4-5 times now and she is so incredibly skilled and has such a good heart and good energy. You will not be disappointed if you choose her!
Aug 6, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is wonderful! The atmosphere is so relaxing! Great place to destress before a test! I have been there 3 times and would love to come back every day!
Jul 23, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Vicki is GREAT!
I have seen Vicki three times now and I've seen a lot of massage therapists over the years but none have been as skilled as she is. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a truly awesome massage.

"I'll be Back"
I drove 75 miles to claim my birthday present from my daughter and was so pleasantly relaxed and refreshed after Esther hit all the stressed muscles that "I'll be back" for more. Thanks, Esther!
Jun 14, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
An insight to my skin
I've never had a facial before and when my mom bought me one, I was not happy. However after about 45 minutes I changed my mind. Not only did I feel refreshed but I learned a lot. Esther was able to explain to my why my skin is the way it is and she gave me advice on how to improve it. She made me conscious to how important and relatively simple general skin care is. Not to mention how relaxing the entire experience was.
Jun 8, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A Place to Relax lives up to its name. Esther holds wonderful energy. She knows the right way to smoothly get to the twisted places where stress hides and gets those knots out, seemingly with the magical swirl of a forearm. I kept talking to myself all the way home about how delicious I felt. (The "my talking to myself" part was not her fault). I've got to quit singing her praises, though. My friends took too many of the good slot times.
May 23, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Just what I needed
My neck & back had so many knots that I was in alot of discomfort. My husband got me a gift certificate to this spa for my birthday. Ester was awesome she got in there and worked her magic. I will definately go back. The facial was also great. thank you Ester I highly recommend this place to everyone.
May 4, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Had a hot stone massage by Victoria B. I would definately recommend trying this place out. Great downtown location. Verry relaxing. The place is cozy and very clean.

the wonder of Ester
Ester, is a wonderfull person and always makes me fell better, without Ester, I would be in pain all the time,you should gve her a try, she works hard, and always listens to what your problems are, she works hard on my hard musceles and gets them soft , she is a wonder so glad I found here, any one that has muscle problems , you shoud give Ester a try she has good hands
Apr 18, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Love the new location!
As always, Esther was great! My muscles were so tense and she really worked hard. This little gem of a spa is well worth the visit. I am already planning my next visit and what treatment I will have.
Feb 24, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Awesome place to relax!!!
My husband suprised me with this for Valentines Day and I have to say it was the best present!! Esther listens to what you need and the rest is relaxing history! I will definately recommend A Place to Relax to everyone I know. The staff is really friendly and the rooms are very relaxing. I feel very refreshed...you must treat yourself!!
Feb 14, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
oh my gosh, it's so nice to wake up in the morning and not be in tons on pain! I have esther to thank for that. After multiple nights of not sleeping due to shoulder and neck pain, i was forced into getting a massage. Esther made my first massage experience easy and comfortable! I will definitely be recommending a place to relax to everyone i know. It is such a friendly, clean, and relaxing environment and i left feeling great, Thank you so much!
Feb 12, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Esther is AMAZING!
Once I found Esther, I stopped shopping around for another Massage Therapist. She is EXTREMELY intuitive and knows exactly what do do and where to do it. I've NEVER had anything but the best massages and facials from her.
Feb 1, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A Place To Relax is wonderful. Ester is funny and very personable. The massage was great and the place is very relaxing and comfortable. Prices are VERY reasonable! Can't wait to go back

Dec 29, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I want to let Ester and her staff know what a great job you did. The full body massage was amazing and definitely was a great first experience with getting a massage. Thank you, me and my wife should be back soon
Dec 23, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091

Dec 5, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I received a gift certificate for $50 for my bday. I ended up getting the prenatal massage and it was wonderful! I only wish that I had some actual sore spots to work out! Esther was very friendly and so was the rest of the staff. I will definately be going back after my son is born for a nice deep tissue!
Nov 6, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I had the best experience at A Place to Relax! I am actually scheduled to return two weeks from my first appointment. If you are looking for a place to treat yourself... this is the place!
Nov 4, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
God bless Victoria!
My first experience with A Place to Relax was on my birthday Nov. 3rd. I signed up for a one hour Swedish Massage with Ms. Victoria. I am so pleased that I chose "A Place to Relax" as a place to relax on my birthday! Victoria was a gem. She's very intuitive and sweet. She has good energy so I felt very comfortable with her. I felt so good afterwards I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. I will definitely be going back to A Place to Relax.

A Message you'll wish it'd never end!
I went to a place to relax yesterday and got a Swedish for 30 minutes. It was the worst decision in my life! I should have booked at least 90 minutes! It was a great massage and you could feel how the tension just falls away from you. I definitely recommend this place!
Oct 19, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I definitely recommend A Place to Relax
I'm always nervous about trying a different spa, but my massage was great and I was very comfortable with Valerie. I definitely recommend A Place to Relax.
Oct 2, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I recently had a massage at A Place to Relax Massage & Skin Care, and it was one of the best massages I have ever received. My children bought me a gift certificate for Mother's Day, and I finally went and had it done. I would go back there again, because I enjoyed it so much.
Jul 16, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
a great place to go
I give the service an A it was very relaxing experience i would like to tell everyone please give A Place to Relax a chance. I do believe you really would enjoy your self. Thanks Kim
Jun 15, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
A wonderful experience
I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable in Esther's hands and I felt the benefits of my facial for days afterward. Along with the wonderful treatment I received the cost of services is very reasonable, which attracted me in the first place. Both Esther and the cost of services will keep me coming back for a long time. I'm glad I found A Place to Relax!
Jun 4, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
This was my first massage...I am addicted. Ester was amazing, I am so relaxed and recharged. Worked out all that tension and knots. I will be making another appt very soon! Amazing!
Apr 7, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
Very happy customer!!!
I had a facial done by Esther and it was amazingly relaxing and professional. Everything was perfect! She had an amazing touch, and was pleasant. Thank you so much Esther, will come back soon!
Mar 22, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
liked it, loved it
This was not my first massage, but it was by far one of the best. I had lots of knots in my back, arms, and neck and Esther worked most of them out. I had so many, it would probably take a while to get all of them out, but it was wonderful. I felt very comfortable. Thank you so much, I will be back. And it was very easy to make the appointment on line, very nice, beautiful web site also
Mar 13, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
This was my first time to "A Place To Relax" and it will not be my last. Esther was awesome and very professional. She made me feel very comfortable. I made my appointment on-line, quick with no problems. I am going to visit "A Place To Relax", now once a month. I just feel totally refreshed and very relaxed. Boy, did I need this. I recommend Esther to those of you who would like the deep tissue massage. Esther, again Thank You! Very Pleased! Yvette B.
Mar 3, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I needed a great massage and thanks to Mai and her wonderful massage skills I received possibly the best massage ever......Thank you so much! Felling much better today and I'll see you in a couple of weeks.
Dec 14, 2008http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
I've been to A Place to Relax a few times and they're always very friendly & professional. It's clean and they're very accomodating, even with short notice appointments. The online appointment booking system is convenient, I just wish it specified who your masseuse would be. It worked out well though, Mainhia was absolutely fantastic. If I had to mention one downside it would be the traffic noise from McHenry, but believe me, you'll forget all about that during your massage.
Oct 2, 2008http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30021091
What I Needed
Clean location, easy to find with pleasant staff. I was able to make an appointment the day of my massage, and I was able to make it online. A confirmation email was sent to me and the appointment was added to my outlook calendar. Wonderful! I would have given the location 5 stars if my Masseuse would have taken the time to explain what she was doing as it was my first deep tissue massage. She did a great job but I would have been more at ease with a quick explanation.
