People book a massage because they received it as a gift, for a special treat or occasion, for stress or pain relief, for body maintenance and conditioning, for a fun thing to do with someone, and for other reasons. 

When choosing a massage therapist for one or more sessions, you hope to satisfy your preferences on several levels such as scheduling and location convenience, settings and comfort level, cost, interpersonal communication, and quality of technique. There are many choices available!  

Massage on University, a day spa located in the heart of Rochester, New York, has been established for 16 years, with excellent services including massage therapy, esthetics, permanent make-up, and laser treatments! The spa currently is run by eight independent practitioners, all talented women!

Drift into a meditative zone during Gloria's symmetrical routine which is customized and adjusted for each session. With rhythm and controlled pressure, this systematic approach is enjoyable, gently loosening tightness, restoring posture, and releasing natural, feel-good, brain chemicals, the body's natural painkillers. 

Her holistic technique is based on classic Swedish style. She addresses key muscles and pressure points, systematically switching sides of the body. Her performance includes hallmark moves like tapotement, compressions, and gentle stretches. She accents her work with Zen Face massage, featuring small, repetitive motions that rejuvenate the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders. And she compliments her repertoire with traditional Reflexology, thoroughly relaxing nerves in the feet and hands.
