had not ever had a professional massage. The team was very responsive

had a fantastic experience. From the moment we walked in the door, we
felt cared for. It's a great environment they have created. The massage

my first massage at Relax Blacksburg today, but not my first with
Polly. I have been seeing her for massage therapy for almost a year now.
She's absolutely wonderful! She listens to your needs and will change

"As a strength and power athlete
competing on the international level, it is important for me to make
sure my body is ready to meet the demands of training and competition.
The highly-skilled massage therapists at Relax Blacksburg play a crucial

wonderful experience. Normally, my back is as tight as the head of a
drum. Not after Carmyn worked her magic. I was able to sleep that night
without the add of my normal night time meds. My back is still relaxed
(for me anyway), and I am able to sleep better, and feel better overall.
I will be back........... Soon!!!"
-- Joan Wendler via Facebook on October 2, 2017
"Thanks to great yelp reviews we found this gem! This place
was awesome! The massages were the best massages we've had in a long
time. From the heated table to the heated neck rest and heated eye
pillows, we were in love. They made sure we were comfortable throughout.
We will definitely be coming again! Rebekah and Rebecca were amazing!"
-- Chelsea V. via Yelp on September 29, 2017

what you get. Very professional and friendly staff. I will go back!!"
-- Karen Sowder via Facebook on September 26, 2017
love this place and I will return to it as often as I can. Even just a
30-minute session is enough to reduce my back and neck pain by a good
80%. I have C5-C6 spondylosis (cervical arthritis), and massage is the
only way to deal with the symptoms. Everyone I've met so far has been
competent and polite, and the place is lovely."
-- Claudio D'Amato via Facebook on September 20, 2017
"Everything about this place is perfect. Erin was a great massage
therapist and was very attentive to my needs. Everything she did before,
during, and after the massage promoted ultimate relaxation. I will be
recommending her and this place to anyone looking for a quality massage
and will definitely be coming back."
-- Mary Nedela via our website on August 17, 2017
"Had another 90 minutes massage session today at Relax Blacksburg. My
therapist was Rebecca Figueiredo. My massage was the highlight of my
I love starting with some deep tissue massage on my back, shoulders, and
neck. Then mix in the Swedish massage with a scalp rub and facial...
staying awake is a challenge.
Perhaps I should warn everyone about driving home afterwards "under the
influence" of a wonderful session at the hands of another highly skilled
therapist like Rebecca. Seriously, Relax Blacksburg is a great place to treat yourself!"
-- Earl Riggs via Facebook on August 7, 2017
"So happy I stumbled across this place. I had a relaxing
massage from Rebecca- I would totally recommend her. I look forward to
getting another soon!"
-- Isa L. via Yelp on July 24, 2017
"I try to get a massage every few months to manage my
shoulder tension. Tried this place for the first time and had a great
session. I like that they have 30 and 40 minute options instead of only
60 or 90. I felt so relaxed - one of the best massages I've had in a
while. Will definitely be back and would recommend going here." -- Alison G. via Yelp on July 22, 2017
"Today, I had my first massage session at "Relax Blacksburg" with
Rebekah Conroy. Man, oh man... it was wonderful! First, I work in an
office environment. I developed some back and shoulder pain typical
when using a computer for many hours at a time. I asked for a mixture
of deep tissue massage on back and shoulders, followed by general
massage and ending with a neck, scalp, and face massage to top it off.
Best 90 minutes of my day. :)
I found Relax Blacksburg massage by
Google search. Online booking was a snap. And Rebekah was strong and
at the same time gentle. She found several sore "knots" on my back and
worked them out.
was thorough and attentive. She explained the session very well and let
me ask questions. She also spent extra time on my arms and wrists and
relieved some pain I didn't realize was there until after it was gone. I
was so impressed that I booked a second 90 minute session for this
week. Can't wait! :)"
-- Earl Riggs via Facebook on July 12, 2017
"I was overly happy with my visit. I had established at another facility thinking it was great, however, Erin went above and beyond any massage I have ever received."
-- Liz Catron via our website on July 6, 2017
"Relax Blacksburg has convenient hours and wonderful massage
therapists! I was very impressed with the quality of the massages as
well as the ease of making reservations. After my first visit here, the
massage therapist let me know that my back stiffness wasn't normal and
ways to improve mobility. This encounter prompted me to go to a
chiropractor and further investigate. Indeed, I needed back re-tuning
and just finished my treatment with a chiropractor. Without her
knowledge and thoroughness, I would have continued to experience
discomfort and not remedy the problem."
-- Shernita Lee via our website on July 5, 2017
"Great experience. Carmyn was fantastic - very attentive and professional. Best massage I've ever had!"
-- Jessica Deslauriers via our website on June 30, 2017

-- Jael Osterbauer via Facebook on June 18, 2017
"I've had a number of massages over the years and had to leave my regular
masseuse when I relocated to Blacksburg for a job. I treated myself to a
massage with Erin today and she was top notch. The facility is great
(ample parking, easy to find), with wonderful amenities (welcoming
ambiance, heated tables, Bose sound - if you've ever had treatment with a
tape deck or silence you know how distracting inferior sound can be to
your zen). Erin was able to ask the right questions to assess my needs
and modified my appointment type on the fly to address my issues. She's
not afraid to implement deep tissue massage, but was very receptive to
my feedback and comfort level. She also taught me some stretches to help
maintain the work she did. All in all, a great experience, I will be

"I am so glad that I decided to book a massage at Relax Blacksburg. I haven't had a massage in a very long time but thanks to my daughter, I got this for my birthday. I'm so glad I did! Everything was perfect, from the decor to the music/sounds to the warm table and most of all my massage therapist, Rebecca. She was great! I couldn't have asked for a better experience...thank you!"

It was a very professional, friendly and relaxing environment. This

"I've been blessed for the year and a half with the privilege of working
with Brian and the other talented therapists at Relax Blacksburg. They
are uniquely skilled, in a profession they love, and work with me to
respond to my body's needs EVERY TIME I go for an appointment. I could
hardly walk with a mass of fused muscles on my legs and at the hip -
body response to a cracked pelvis and restrictive pain. I move more
freely, can dance a bit, am stretching and working gently between
massages. These folks ROCK!! They are fun, respectful and current in
their practice, integrating new techniques in a systemic way.
your body an amazing gift of mindful attention - call for a massage
today at Relax Blacksburg and feel what it's like to learn to care for
yourself through their model of exemplary care!"

-- Noel Eden Webb via Facebook on September 14, 2016
"A friend and I got massages here this summer and it was wonderful! I was
able to book two massages on short notice and we didn't have to wait
when we arrived. The staff was very friendly and professional. Price was
very reasonable. I would definitely get another massage here!"
-- Elissa M. via TripAdvisor on September 12, 2016
" I had my first visit today, and I will definitely going back. I highly
recommend Rebecca. I've been dealing with a tight, painful shoulder for a
couple of weeks, and I'm finally feeling some relief after our session
today. Wonderful massage therapist!"
-- Lynn Rogers via Facebook on August 30, 2016.
"When I walked in there I was limping and so sore from a bad hip and bad
knee. Rebecca was my messages(sic) and she worked wonders I feel so good I
like to jump up in the air and kick my heels together!"
-- Michael Susini via Facebook on July 29, 2016
"I have never had a massage in my life until this past monday, July 25th, for my 25th birthday. I had the pleasure of meeting Koko Radford. I will never again go on without a massage. I plan to try & go monthly now. She was amazing. The oils are all hand mixed with natural oils . You have the choice to even have it customized to your liking (I went with lavender) . I never write reviews but RELAX is well worth the time. Great pricing, for over the top quality. The rooms give off vibes of tranquility and puts your mind, body and soul at ease. I'm so glad my first experience was here. YOU THE BEST KOKO!"
-- Nina A. via Google on July 28, 2016
"Amazing! Thank you Brian! Very professional, excellent knowledge and technique. Highly recommend.
had to make an appointment for a massage after developing severe neck
and shoulder pain the morning before participating in the annual
Mountains of Misery ride after sleeping on a poor mattress. Having
driven 6 hours from Philadelphia and staying for Memorial Day weekend I
was upset at the idea of not being able to complete the 128 mile ride
due to the pain.
Brian greeted my wife and I at the door and had
me complete a standard health questionnaire which he thoroughly went
over to get a better idea of my problem.
He then clearly
explained what techniques he was going to use and why. He then focused
his time on the biggest problem areas. Alert to facial and body cues he
adjusted his pressure to avoid discomfort. He also frequently asked if
the pressure was too much.
Then there was the new heated bamboo rollers! It allows him to work large muscles quickly and with better pressure actuation.
Afterwards I couldn't believe the difference. I had almost full range of neck motion with minimal pain.
nice hot shower the next morning to open up the muscles and I was ready
for mountains of misery. Even after 10 hours and 128 miles of biking my
neck was only a little sore.
Thanks again Brian!"
-- Dr. Timothy Salkauskis via Yelp on June 1, 2016
"Very impressed! I originally came because I was having
daily headaches and felt like I had tried every other option. I was
shocked at the difference my visits made. Not only is Brian very
attentive, but is also incredibly knowledgeable and uses a variety of
techniques to relieve my stiff neck. I am incredibly pleased with the
professionalism and service offered at Relax Blacksburg."
-- Courtney Long via Google on May 27, 2016
"As a world class athlete training
for the Track and Field 2016 Olympic Games it is extremely beneficial to
recover any damaged muscle tissue after my intense workouts. Getting
massages with Relax Blacksburg twice a week allows my body to
rejuvenate, release tension in my muscles and perform at peak
performance every week! I'm healthier, I'm faster, I'm game ready
thanks to Relax Blacksburg!"

-- Amanda Smith via Twitter on March 23, 2016
"I am so impressed with the techniques used by Brian and Koko. First off,
Brian was the only masseuse that had the pregnancy mold table which
allowed me to be comfortable and have a much needed massage in my 9
month of pregnancy. We also had the luxury of experiencing the
Valentines special as a couple and enjoyed a relaxing experience in a
beautiful room side by side where techniques such as Lomi Lomi were
used. The massage therapists pay attention to your needs and are
sincerely interested in your health and welfare. The chocolate covered
strawberries with the Valentines package were a very nice touch! I'm so
happy they are part of the Blacksburg business community."

"This was the best massage I've had since 2010, when my last regular
massage therapist retired. I've tried several spots in the NRV since
then, hoping to find that perfect blend of relaxed & professional,
clean & comfortable, physical & spiritual--but couldn't find
that Goldilocks spot that was just right for me. Until my partner
& I went in for a couple's massage today and it was so exactly
right that we booked another one immediately. We would (and will)
recommend Brian and Koko to anyone & are already looking forward to
our next visit. Thanks again guys!"
-- Misty Harris via Facebook on Feb 17, 2016
"Absolutely amazing. Had the chocolate indulgence special during the
month of February. The foot scrub was much needed after having tired,
achy feet for a long time. The 60 minute massage worked out the
tightness in my muscles and I was 100% relaxed by the end. Also, the
chocolate indulgence includes a box of chocolate covered strawberries
which were PHENOMENAL. Fabulous experience!!"

-- Marc Junkunc via our website on Jan 28, 2016

at reading cues during our session regarding sensitive areas that we
may need to work on throughout our sessions. The massage was very good
and the environment was very relaxing and comfortable. Would definitely
recommend to others."
-- Clyde Cornett via our website on Jan 22, 2016

-- Jess Christian via Facebook on Dec 31, 2015
"Wonderful! I received one of the best massages I've ever had from Koko
at Relax Blacksburg. This is a new business, but by no means does that
show! The massage therapists are amazing and care deeply about helping
you feel better and making you comfortable in their space. I would
highly recommend any of the massage therapists here! An even bigger
bonus is that the location is easy to get to and there is always tons of
parking. Oh! And I have to also mention that one of the owners makes
all of the lotions and oils (and even sells them) and they are amazing!
From the second Koko put some on my skin I exclaimed that was the nicest
massage oil/lotion anyone's ever used on me. Definitely had to pick up a
jar for myself and friends!"
-- Kimberly Salyers via Google on Dec 15, 2015
"Wonderful environment and staff. Koko is amazing. If you have a lot of
tension and stress, she knows exactly what to do to make your body
relax. Koko takes her time to listen to your needs and match her
massage to exactly what you need."
-- Sonia M. via Yelp on Dec 7, 2015
