"Gloria is the best ever so quite n clean I would recommend Gloria to anyone who wants to get rid of that daily stress or problems your having . She knows what she's doing besttt "

"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!"

“Gloria has been my answer for finding the best massage therapist there is for me. Gloria spends time listening and understanding my concerns about what is best for me on the type of massage I need.”

“Gloria is personable, professional, and great to work with. She explains things well and answers any questions. Gloria is always generous with her time and her massages is excellent.”

“She asked detailed questions about my preferences for the massage before beginning.”

“Massage Therapy in an adorable, small room that is comfortable, clean and relaxing. Gloria was welcoming, professional and thorough. She listened to my all of my concerns and I left feeling rejuvenated. The best part: I booked the massage on the same day! Amazing.”

"That was easily one of the best massages I've ever received."

"You are a fantastic massage therapist! I am feeling pain free so I will have a wonderful evening!"

What should I expect for my first massage?
After a brief medical intake, Gloria leaves the room, so the client can undress to his or her comfort level (meaning underwear optional), and then he or she lays on the massage table under the top sheet. Then Gloria re-enters the room and undrapes the part of the client's body that is being worked on. During the massage, Gloria will check in about the level of pressure.

Is draping required?

Yes, in New York State. The use of draping may vary for other therapists, modalities, and in other states or countries. 

What is included in a full-body massage? Neck, decollete, shoulders, back, glutes, legs, face, scalp, arms, hands, and feet. AREAS NOT INCLUDED: chest, abdomen, hip flexors, adductors.
