It was a last minute decision to treat myself for a massage. This is my first visit to Synapse. After I read some reviews, I picked Ximena. I like how there’s a parking lot in the back of the building, great for a 90 minute massage! I’ve …

Breanna was amazing. If I could retitle her massage I would re-title it “the slow down massage”. Her touch was extremely empathetic and caring. I walked out of my session feeling so much more at home in my body. Thank you!

Thanks for your glowing review, Elizabeth! We're lucky to have Breanna's talented hands and big heart on the Synapse Crew. So glad you enjoyed your massage. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

I had a wonderful massage by Eleanor that was very relaxing. I enjoyed the cranial sacral massage as it allowed me to let go and relax. This is just what the doctor ordered!
