“I just had massage there. I usually don’t comment or review anything like that. I haven’t had a great massage for a while!! He is so fantastic 😉 I highly recommend this place!!
I definitely go back!”

“There would be no reason to not give John, the studio and the massage itself 5 stars. I was given the massage as a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday. The studio is beautiful. John is great! He takes time to speak with you about exactly what is going on with your body that day. The entire experience is unique and personalized.
I can say that the massage was the best I’ve ever had. Perfect amount of pressure. I get tension headaches very often and I haven’t had one since the massage which is huge for me. He takes so much time before and after the massage to asses how you are feeling.
I can not wait to schedule another massage with John.”

“Deep massage was lovely. I appreciated the use of heated towels on my back while he was working other areas. All in all I feel very relaxed and am very happy with my service. Its hard to find good massages and I’ll definitely keep this place in mind when I’m in town.”

“I’ve had work from all over the country and many different styles of massage, and am a massage therapist myself, so I have very high standards when it comes to picking a massage therapist. Everything about the experience at space is perfect!”

“The entire massage was excellent and I really did let go of anything on my brain and was at total peace. I was left in a daze. My body was numb. I don’t remember the last time I felt this way at any point in time. This probably sounds like overkill but it is the truth. At the end of the session, he told me to take a few minutes to lay there and get up when ready. I didn’t want to get up and leave. It was almost surreal.”

“I am now most of the way through my second pregnancy and have been scheduling with John on a regular basis to help my body adjust. Space has a bodyCushion pillow for maternity massage and it is HEAVEN. During my prenatal massages I can lie face down and the pillow supports my back, spine, and hips allowing my weight to be distributed evenly around a belly pocket. As all pregnant mothers know, being able to lie on your stomach while pregnant is near impossible. It is a true treat and joy to be able to lie face down while getting my amazing massage! John began using the pillow starting at about 11 weeks and we are still using it at 32+ weeks. The pillow has fit my varied sizes perfectly all along my pregnancy! The only problem is how sad I am that I don’t have one of these special pillows at home.”

“The table was very comfortable and all through my massage, John put towels or pillows under certain areas to make sure I was as comfortable and as relaxed as possible. As other’s have mentioned, the hot towels are a nice feature of the massage and I enjoyed those a lot. Throughout the massage it felt like he used various technics to help that specific area which was a welcomed new experience. It felt like he was actually paying attention to what each muscle needed individually rather than a canned performance throughout that you get at most places. As a whole, I can say the massage was one of the best I’ve ever had.”

“I’m a part-time resident of Scottsdale (for now), and when I’m in town, I live quite near Scottsdale Fashion Square. There are spas and massage studios galore in the area, including highly-touted resort spas at the Phoenician, the Scottsdale Camelback Inn and The Sanctuary. I’ve visited many, and have had nice experiences. But none have compared to the massage experience I’ve had with John at Space Massage Studio. For a healthy, healing massage that leaves you feeling refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated,Space Massage Studio is the place to go, and John is the therapist to trust.”

“60 minutes felt like 60 luxurious hours. Nearing the end of the dreadful 2009 year, I desperately needed a massage stimulus package. A retweet from a trusted friend tipped me off that Space Massage Studio had a few openings that very weekend.
After one visit, I’m hooked. Whenever I need a midday breather, I’ll close my eyes and dream of this recuperative experience.
Space is across the street and around the corner from the crosshairs of the LGO phenomenon. Lucky me, I’ve had a chance to visit several the Valley’s multi-million dollar spas, but each one lacks a little soul. However, Space is located inside the humble abode of master massage therapist John Hill. I can only dream of having such prime locale for a home, let alone a business.
Ring the door bell and John invites you into his home. (Space is now located at 4202 N. 32nd St., Suite G, Phoenix, AZ 85018.) He’s genuinely interested in your day and asks about your lifestyle, physical needs, special requests, habits and personal interests. The causal intro makes you feel relaxed and welcomed like a returning dinner guest.
We chatted about life in Arizona, business, busy lifestyles and desperate need to unwind and indulge in a restorative massage.
After you’ve enjoyed the B&B-like hospitality, John leads you next door to the massage studio where a serene setting with diffused natural light, warm wood floors, relaxing music and delicately scented candles await. The expert attention to detail is evident as all five senses are instantly relaxed when you step into the studio.
Everything is customized.
John asks me about my music preference, desired room temperature, lighting… nothing is left to chance. Everything is about my needs.
60 minutes felt like 60 hours. Using the consultation, he mapped out a battle plan to conquer my ailments. John zeros in on the problem areas but also hits the unexpected spots that truly alleviate my tension and stress.
This is ultra-comfort and affordable (mandatory) luxury.
I’m a terrible customer. I failed to read the “cash or check preferred” statement on Space Massage Studio’s site! John was kind enough offer an alternative PayPal payment option, but to my horror… it didn’t work. Nor did my debit card withdrawal at LGO’s dreaded ATM! John never fretted during the entire situation. In fact, he just smiled and suggested I mail him a check at my convenience. Long story short, I left, then returned 15 mins later with the cash in hand. He was a saint.
WHY I LOVE IT:
Visiting Space is like visiting a friend’s house for dinner. You’re instantly welcomed and pampered as an honored guest. Warning: After your massage session, you’ll be haunted by wonderful dreams of specialized treatments, John’s charming personality and traditional hospitality.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT:
You’ll make a new friend. I did.”
