Portland >Aqua Terra Couples Massage
Wow...can't wait to go again!.
My husband and I searched high and low for massage clinics, spas, etc...and I googled massage in my zip code and stumbled across Aqua Terra. Most importantly, the website is extremely thorough and has a great layout which is a huge thing for me. There is a small biography on Erik and Faye, which I thought was great. I was extremely nervous about getting a massage because I never had one before this...so it was nice to know who would be seeing me in (what I felt) is an intimate setting.
The office is located in a large building on Morrison/Grand which is extremely busy and loud...but I really couldn't hear a thing. So, as far as location is concerned, great! When we talked in, they were SO nice and kind, offered us water and instead of talking to us as a "couple" each therapist talked privately with us to determine what we watned out of the session. My husband had Erik, and I had Faye. I went in with soreness in my right shoulder and left with no soreness. I have lower back problems and she really made sure to focus on that. They really guided us through the process and it was great. I told them that it was the first time in my life I thought about literally NOTHING. Amazing! And the sheets...the sheets and massage table was like a cloud! ahh....getting sleepy just thinking about it now.
The price in my opinion is extremely affordable, but we weren't concerned about that anyway. We will absolutely be going back probably in the next month or two, and I can't wait. You won't regret going here.
Cannot wait to go again.
I've had many professional massages, from five-star hotels to being in someones living room, and I wanted to introduce my unititiated boyfriend to this fabulous escape. So I did my research and decided to trust the reviews of Aqua Terra Massage. We had our hour-long couples massage in January 2009 and it was the best massage I've ever had and my boyfriend loved it. The space is comfortable and you can tell that everything is centered around you being relaxed and enjoying the experience.
While I get massages to relax, I hope to come out of the experience feeling better both mentally and physically. I loved that Erik (Faye was doing my boyfriends massage and he shared similar stories) noticed points of tension and instead of just passing over them, really worked those spots - making the experience a bit more intense and much more rewarding. They focused on our conscious and unconscious wants and needs....that may sound silly, but I think a good masseuse will pay attention to how the body reacts and know more of what we need that we often know ourselves.
To conclude: This couple is worth every penny and I will be going back. With or without my boyfriend!
Best massage ever!. I've been to several different places for a massage (including a fancy lodge in Carmel Valley, CA) and I have to say that this was the best one I've had! My boyfriend and I went in together (it was his first massage and he loved it) but I'm definitely going back again by myself. You get to pick from several different scents of aromatherapy lotions and you can mix and match them. The massage is specifically tailored to what you need and they do everything from pressure points to a face massage--all in just an hour. My back/shoulders/neck were hurting when I went in and I walked out with zero pain. And, the price was definitely right! I would definitely recommend Erik and Faye to anyone.
great experience, wonderful massage, nice atmosphere, very professional and we will be back!. We scheduled our appointment online which could not have been easier, and showed up a little before 8 for our massage. We ran into Erik in the hallway and he enthusiastically greeted us. We both loved the room, very relaxing and comfortable, loved the artwork and even the lucky bamboo. We picked our massage therapist and although we were all in the same small room we were given one on one time with our choice, and discussed what we would like to get out of the experience. It was very, very personalized. We even had our choice of scents for massage oil. My sweetie had a massage for relaxation and mine focused on old injuries from a car accident, combined with breathing techniques I have learned through Tai Chi and Yoga over the years. Again, SO personalized! It was quiet, comfortable, warm, it was everything you'd want it to be for an hour of your life. When it was over I didn't want to get up I was so content. We also talked with Faye and Erik after the massage about what we should do going forward, how we'd feel over the next few days, real follow up. We will certainly be returning. I cannot say enough good things about our first experience with Faye and Erik!
Totally worth it!. My boyfriend and I went there and it was a very relaxing experience for the both of us. I didn't think it would be as romantic as it was! Erik and Faye were really nice and talked to us before the massage to take time to understand what we both wanted from the massage. The hour actually went by slow and I didn't feel like they were rushing or leaving anything out. This was our first time getting getting professional massages but we'd love to go back.
It's like a super mini vacation!.
My wife and I are snobs when it comes to our massages. These days there's just too many people out there that are somehow certified in massage therapy.
Thankfully we found Aqua Terra. Fay and Eric are incredible at what they do and we feel very lucky to have found them. The studio is perfect. Very quiet and private setting. Great temperature. The beds are among the best I've ever been on and the blankets and linens they use feel luxurious! My massages have always left me feeling relaxed but worked. Which is exactly the way I want to feel after spending my cash and hour and a half of my time. I just realized that my wife and I have been going here for over a year and I have never written a review, so here it is. We highly recommend Fay and Eric! So much so that we once gave a gift certificate to Aqua Terra masage as a wedding present to some old friends. They told us it was one of the best gifts they received!
Exceptional Massage!!!. Faye and Eric are both exceptional massage therapists and I have been meaning to write a review for them forever now. So here it goes... Best tables, that padding makes for pure luxury! Great temperature, wonderful linens, diverse music, chocolate treats and water - how thoughtful and kind! Friendly and caring people with shining personalities. And I haven't even mentioned their massages!! Eric and Faye are both strong and able to get into the deepest crevices to release year old tensions. I had a leg and foot injury that Faye was able to help resolve with her persistance and strength. Eric has worked on me as well and has a very intuitive style and the ability to help me truely relax on the table by focusing on breath work while giving a fantastic massage. I have had over a hundred massages in my life and wouldn't go anywhere else! They are committed to excellence and they are really fine people. Definately give them a try - you will not regret it!
YOU'LL NEVER WANT IT TO END...... Chip and I received our first couples massage on V-Day and have been back every other week since! No matter the stresses of your day, the things on your mind, the pain in your neck, or the tension in your shoulders, you will be amazed at how Faye and Erik make all these things and more dissolve under their fingertips. Erik and Faye are both amazing therapists, pleasant people, and they radiate a very caring, nurturing, and comfortable essence. They also offer great knowledge and insight. After entering the blissfully peaceful massage room you are greeted by 2 smiling faces, a glass of water, and your therapist will then sit with you to discuss your personal needs and wants from the massage. The Krippners both offer extensive knowledge in different types of massage as well as offering the client a deeper insight to what is going on with their body. A skydiving accident left Chip with a horribly busted shoulder and he has not been able to find relief from the pain anywhere or by anyone until Faye put her magic hands on him! I, have relaxation issues from hell and tend to hold a lot of stress inside my muscles. Erik works out all my kinks and brings me back to a state of calmness and oneness with my body. After our massages we are both so deeply relaxed, relieved, and our positive energy flow is at it's max. They have the most comfortable massage tables on the planet and their exclusive aroma therapy oils never fail to do their job. They play a variety of pleasant music, check in with you often during your massage, and they both offer appropriate and comfortable draping. You'll never want it to end, but when it does, your therapist sits with you again and offers very helpful advice on stretches, posture changes, and other things you can do on your own to improve what problems you may be having. Then with a smile and a big bottle of water (to take with you) they thank you for your time. A++, two thumbs up, please treat yourself to an Aqua Terra massage!
AHHHmazing massage!. I've been to see both Faye and Erik many times and am constantly amazed by the continued great service, relaxed atmosphere and superb massages. I've NEVER had a bad massage from either of them. The couples massages have been incredible as well. We'll never go anywhere else.
Amazing Massage, Excellent Value. My husband and I had a couples massage for Valentine's Day. Not only was my stress melted away but my body has felt remarkably better in the weeks since. Faye and Erik were both warm and professional in addition to being wonderful at what they do. I hope to visit again soon.
