Austin >Myo Massage
Myo Massage is one of my go-to businesses for a truly zen like experience. The signature myo massage and kinesio tape treatment are fan favorites!
Not Massage - Bodywork. I went to try Myo because of the reviews, and I was pleased. I typically go to a day spa, but it has a high turnover rate due to its prices, and I get tired of always having to switch therapists. Myo was not what I was expecting. It does not aim for the posh, indulgent atmosphere of a day spa, which I kind of missed. Like they say, it is more of a bodywork center. There are no fancy locker rooms, etc., or people wandering all about in robes, like I am used to. You undress/change in the room where you receive the massage, before the therapist enters. One of the cool things, though, is the opportunity to select your own music during treatment. It may sound like a small thing, but I thought it was really neat, particuarly since ocean waves and new age music don't really relax me. I had a 90 min. massage with Gina to address some tightness in my shoulder and knee from playing tennis. It was not a simple massage, but rather a very therapeutic form of treatment - she really focused on the problem areas, instead of just giving them 10 minutes and moving on. It was sometimes painful, but necessary. Gina was very nice and stayed in communication with me throughout. She explained the problems she was finding, what she was doing to alleviate them, and why. I also liked that she was open to small talk, like when I'm at the barber or something. At the day spa I used to go to, it often seems like they don't want you to ever speak during the massage unless you're in dire pain. To summarize, if you want the resort-style facilites of a day spa (nothing wrong with that), Myo may not be what you're looking for; but if you really want to feel where your money went after the massage is done, I highly recommend Myo's bodywork for quality and results.
don't know what all the good reviews are about.... I got a massage here based on all the GREAT reviews I read on here. Unfortunately, unless the rest of you are getting some kind of "happy ending" that your not talking about, this place is not even good-- it's so/so. It could of just been the masseuse I got, can't remember her name, but it was seriously a waste of time AND money! I'm convinced now that they must have the front desk girl writing in amazing, perfect reviews to generate more business, who knows...
Massage defined!. It is great to find folks that are intuitive and skilled. Catherine & Levi's efforts have made a major positive difference in my wife's and my well being. The other staff members I have dealt with are also knowledgeable and dedicated. Both locations are clean, calming, and generate a healing atmosphere. Their techniques change from session to session as our bodies heal and reinvigorate reflecting their knowledge of the healing processs and their wide ranging skills. Their highly professional interview and the records they maintain of your treatment are confidence builders as well. This is the place to run to for a tune up or to attack a chronic issue.
Great new location and Wonderful massage!.
We just came back from an 90 minute couples massage at Myo's new location and was impressed. We walked in and were pleasantly greeted and offered some water. The room had a good energy, relaxing music, and the massage therapists were Great. Gina was my massage therapist and would highly recommended her. She did a fantastic job and I left there feeling completly relaxed and refreshed.
5 star business and a 5 star massage!
I love Myo! The best massages - ever! Yes, if you go to a few other places in town they might have silly frills, but if you want a great massage at a great price myo is the place to go.
My boyfriend is really weird about massages and that sort of thing and Myo is the only place he will go! We LOVE IT!
Cold Room, Lukewarm Massage.
Due to all the good reviews, I thought I'd try this place out while my regular day spa is closed for remodeling. I was very disappointed. The massage room was way too cold, and stayed that way even after I mentioned it. The massage, in contrast, was lukewarm at best. I'd say it's a contender for the worst massage I've ever had, and I've had lots. I wonder if all the other posters are friends of the owners.
I will not go back.
We're extremely sorry to hear about phop2's negative experience. The quality of each session is our top priority, and since each therapist has skills in different areas, we try very hard to match each client with the therapist who will best meet their particular needs. The more we know about the client's preferences and history, the better selection we can make. In this case, there was clearly a miscommunication.
We do provide table warmers and adjust the temperature by request, so it's unfortunate that the room remained too cold during the session. We would certainly have turned up the heat again if we had known.
We have contacted this reviewer in an attempt to remedy the situation.
Best prices for incredible, professional service. I've been getting a massage every other month or so for years now. I just moved into Austin so I had to find a new place to go, and I am SO glad I found Myo. My boyfriend and I got a couple's massage a week or so ago with Catherine and Levi, and they were awesome. Levi was my therapist that time, but I also had the pleasure of experiencing Catherine's technique today when I just had to go back in for another massage after a hellish week of work. Levi's customized Myo massage was greatly therapeutic, and Catherine's swedish massage was sooo relaxing and intuitive. Even though it was only 30 minutes, she got every part of my body very thoroughly. They are half the price as some places, and at $35 I can afford to get a 30 minute swedish massage every week... which is great considering I'm a baker and work wreaks havoc on my body.
BEST THERAPISTS ANYWHERE! A++ customer service!. I called Myo at the last minute to get a certificate for my boyfriend's birthday, and they emailed it to me right on the spot! We called the next day at noon, Meredith & Levi got us in the same day and it was absolutely the best massage either of us ever had. I'll never go to the cheap local massage clinic again. Myo's staff is very friendly, they provide great service and the therapists can't be beat!!!
best massage for troubled backs. I've had many massages at many spas in town and no one has helped my back as much as Gina has. I have had back trouble for years, been to a chiropractor and physical therapy, but 3 sessions with Gina and I was cured! And it didn't cost an arm and a leg! She knows her stuff and gives you streches and exercises to help strenthen your area of pain.
Great personalized massage for all your needs. I have been getting massages at Myo for almost a year. I originally went because of a back injury, but continue to go because I have found the structural bodywork has been very beneficial to improving my flexibility, range of motion and physical comfort. Levi is an exceptional therapist. He has been able to almost completely eliminate pain and recover mobility in my hand that had developed over many years of doing needlework. No doctor had ever been able to do anything other than prescribe painkillers! Levi has been able to help me address other areas like hip tightness and shoulder overuse. I really like it that he explains physically what is going on and how he can help me. He has even shown me stretches I can do between sessions to continue the work. And I should add he is also very capable of giving a very relaxing, indulgent "spa massage" on those times when I just want some pampering! Myo is the place to go if you want a personalized massage for whatever your needs may be.
