Client Testimonials

“Due to my active lifestyle, both work and recreational, I've wondered if a massage ease my stress and tension, and would help my body recover faster. It was always something I wanted, but I never knew where to go.

"I first visited Bardos several months ago. I'll be honest, I never had a professional massage before and wouldn't have known about Bardos without the Amazon deal that I found. I browsed their website and I was interested in trying a few (of the many) services offered. I decided to give it a try, and bought the 3 massage package deal.

"My first visit was more pleasurable than expected. Jenni took the time discuss the techniques, answer my questions, and really listen to my needs. I could tell she was interested in tailoring the massage to match me exactly. I will review the massage experiences in better detail, keep reading.

"The ease of booking an appointment is certainly worth mentioning. Bardos uses and online scheduler, so it's very easy to review the openings for each therapist and types of services. You receive email notifications and reminders. And rescheduling is just as easy. Jaime is very good at responding to emails, not just with scheduling but any question you may have about Bardos services.

"I scheduled my 3 massages over the course of 5 months - 1 Swedish and 2 deep tissue massages, all with Jenni. As with each visit I was pleasantly surprised to find a very peaceful and relaxing environment as soon as I walked in the door. I have never felt rushed, or part of an assembly line of customers. There was always a few minutes of chat before, to see how I was feeling or if there were any areas of concern. And the same chat after the massage, to get feedback and offer tips to use at home - like stretches and diet. I always felt like the staff at Bardos were professional, courteous, and genuinely cared about my wellness.

"I also scheduled an Ashiatsu massage with Jaime a few weeks ago, which I highly recommend to anyone!

"Regarding the massage experience, I have nothing but completely positive experiences with Jenni and Jamie. The rooms are always ready and comfortable, right temperature, clean linens, comfortable massage tables. I'm guessing this would be common with most massage places, but it's the personal service and pleasantries at Bardos that would be pretty tough to beat. I always leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated - and it lasts.

"Based on all of my visits, I found it well worth it to purchase a membership at Bardos. You can review the website for information...but it certainly pays for itself with member pricing - and exclusive deals.

"I have had wonderful experiences with Bardos, and they strive to achieve complete customer satisfaction. My quality of life has increased since visiting that first time. I'm feeling less tension and stress, my body has less fatigue, and I'm sleeping better. They offer several techniques and services, all of which are top quality and shows their years of experience.

"I hope my review has helped you better understand the Bardos experience, and I'm confident you will not be disappointed.”

– Tony S.

"I've tried a dozen massage therapists with various Groupons until I found Jamie at Bardos Massage. I would rather pay her full price and receive value for my money than pay a bargain price/discount elsewhere and wish I hadn't. THE BEST! Highly recommend to friends and relatives."

– Alex Keisch, Richmond, Virginia
