"Outstanding service love it."

"It was an excellent experience and I’ll definitely be coming back "

"Gloria made me feel very comfortable and ensured that I received great care. I would highly recommend her to veterans that suffer from back problems. She was able to make my low back and neck feel good! "

"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!"
