 "I have been going to various licensed massage therapists on and off over the past 15 years. They have spanned from New York to Virginia with several in Eastern Pennsylvania, to include the Philadelphia area.  After my first appointment, I can honestly say that Massage Glow is absolutely the best!  She thoroughly  addressed my tension areas that were discussed during the pre-session consultation. Whether or not you prefer conversation during your session, you are in charge of how that goes. Others in the past would talk my ear off, not allowing me to completely relax.  That is not the case at Massage Glow.  It’s relaxation at its best!"
