Claudia is a great masseuse. She educates you on what’s best for your given condition and health goals and strives to provide excellent service. I originally came in for knee and shoulder pain and after the first visit she had me feeling better. Although I’m pain free now, I continue to see Claudia on a regular basis for maintenance. It is not the cheapest massage around, but Claudia provides such good service it’s more than worth the cost.

I just had a massage session with Judy, she was amazing, she listened and understood my situation and understood the pain I had. when I walked in, I was in significant pain. I have recently experienced pain in my left knee but thought it was generated from my upper leg or groin area. She focused on the sciatic nerve and wow what a difference she made, please go see her if you are experiencing any sort of pain like this. She worked diligently and professionally on the area and was confident I would feel better. She was right. I'm very happy I booked an appointment and will be coming back very soon.

Judy and Claudia are my go to for deep tissue massage. Recently booked a session with Judy because I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and she worked out SO MANY KNOTS! I heard them crunching as she worked through them. I didn't realize I had so many knots in my upper back. I felt so relieved afterwards. Very thorough massage! Wish I lived closer so I could come more often.

Judy Simpson is the finest healer that I have EVER experienced from a massage therapist. She is truly the newest member of my healing team. .of my spiritual and body healing.

OMG! I took off from work for a self-care day and so very grateful that I was able to get a 90 minute massage with Judy at ROAB! Judy was very thorough prior to treatment and such a delightful, interesting therapist. I enjoyed her expertise and energy. She's such a beautiful soul and I hope that she will be around for many more of my visits. Thank you ROAB and especially Judy. I look forward to seeing you again on my next visit.

I have been searching for a great deep tissue massage and I finally found a great one!!!Isaac was incredible! He applied just the right amount of pressure to relieve me of all my pain!!!!I highly recommend coming to their new location in Gibson!!!It’s nice and clean!

Claudia is amazing. I did two session with her for TMD massage, I felt 70% pain relief after the first session and went back for a second session and I am pain free.

I had a lymphatics drainage massage with Estella, it was the most relaxing experience I’ve ever had. I went home instantly to rest and had a great nap after struggling with sleep for the past few weeks. The spa alone was relaxing as soon as you enter, the music, the scents, and dim lighting. It’s the perfect place to go if you are in need of deep relaxation.
16:05 29 Aug 23
This place operates extremely well! Their staff is organized, very polite, and ensures you have a great experience!
01:58 28 Aug 23
Le’Tima was great! The right amount of pressure and very relaxing atmosphere. My first time cupping and she explained exactly what was involved.
20:35 25 Aug 23
Joanna was great!
04:12 24 Aug 23
One of the most amazing and deliberate massages I have ever had. I felt truly relaxed and left with a smile on my face.Claudia listened to my concerns and consulted with me thoroughly before beginning my service. 10/10 looking forward to the next one.Clean and relaxing ambience as well.
00:40 16 Aug 23
I was traveling for work and called in at 5pm because I was having a TMD episode. They accommodated a 6pm appointment, and Isaac gave an incredible TMD massage. Could not recommend more. Excellent place.
19:57 29 Jul 23
Came here for my post op lymphatic drainage massages and Alva is the best . My results healed amazing and felt immediately better after a session . Definitely coming back for other treatments
16:30 29 Jul 23
This was hands down the BEST experiences I have had not only in Houston just in general. Everyone was so nice and attentive and had the best massage of my life. Unfortunately I live out of state but agin, best experience I know you’ll be back and this will be my first stop when I get back to town!
18:31 16 Jun 23
Carolyn is absolutely incredible. I was in an accident a few months ago and come regularly to see her and she has helped me so much. The space is so tranquil and welcoming. I’d recommend anyone here!

I have been going to River Oaks Advanced Bodywork’s for over a year now and have had great sessions with a number of therapists. I recently had to reschedule and had a session with Ms. Judy. She was professional, focused on the areas of need and did a great job. I would recommend her to anyone.
17:25 14 May 23
My husband surprised me with an appointment here for my first prenatal massage. It was amazing! This is a hidden gem in Houston. Judy was my masseuse and she made sure that I was comfortable the entire session. I highly recommend trying them out and ask for Judy.
02:29 17 Apr 23
I can’t recommend Claudia enough. She is very knowledgeable, extremely professional and always listens to her clients and their needs. She is respectful, kind and definitely has a passion for helping her clients feel better. It is always a pleasure to have my session with her, as I know that whatever tension I have in any of my muscles will be alleviated and she will help me design a plan that works for me. She is the best!

I recently had 360 lipo and was looking for a place to do my lymphatic massage. The first place I went had me in a ton of pain! I almost gave up until I found River Oaks Advanced Bodywork and the amazing hands of Johanna! My massage was amazing I felt so good. Great atmosphere and great work!
00:57 12 Dec 22
This place is amazing. William does an excellent job. I had a 1hr cupping session which includes a massage. He applies the right amount of pressure and really is aware of muscle tightness and how to help release it.
20:18 01 Nov 22
Best massage I have ever had from Claudia! I have gone twice and both times were great. I brought a friend and she said her massage from another technician was amazing as well. Claudia pays attention to your needs and makes recommendations, provides a very relaxing experience, and even mentioned that she invests in continuing education classes. I never thought I would try cupping but Claudia explained the benefits & I ended up loving the results in reducing my tension and pain. I ended up getting the membership after my first massage and I think it’s so worth! My back already feels so much better after 2 massages and I plan to continue to go back every 2 weeks. The receptionists are always very sweet and accommodating as well. Thank you Claudia and Riveroaks advanced body works!
22:06 27 Oct 22
When I arrived, I was greeted pleasantly and professionally by the front desk staff. My massage therapist was outstanding! She listened to what I wanted and followed my wishes. Claudia loosened my neck and shoulders a great deal. I will definitely come back the next time I am in Houston.
20:32 21 Oct 22
Alva took very good care of me, with an excellent massage. The facilities are clean, tidy, and pleasant.
23:57 15 Oct 22
Claudia gives the MOST AMAZING massages. I have been getting massage for 20+ years and she is by far the best massage therapist I have ever had. Passive stretching was awesome, she communicates very well and stays in sync with your breathing. Definitely recommend the hot stones as well!!
00:16 17 Sep 22
I’ve tried dozens of massage places in Houston and I’ve got to say that my integrated massage session with Claudia was the best experience I’ve ever had. I felt like this was a complete personalized massage to take care of the areas of my body that needed the most help. I left relaxed and feeling less pain and muscle tension.
19:10 05 Sep 22
Everything from the body massage to the facial was amazing! I was so comfortable and had some great conversations with staff.
23:29 09 Jul 22
Love this place. Been here 4 times already with different therapists, and they’ve all been amazing!
23:00 30 Mar 22
Mila gave me deep tissue massage and it was the best massage I’ve ever had . Mila is very professional, very kind and very sweet . She will be my masseuse from now on. She’s perfect .

First time going to River Oaks Advanced Bodyworks and did ear candling. David was my technician and did a wonderful job. I will definitely be going back.
03:47 26 Jan 22
Great massage. Professional. Nice relaxing setting with easy parking. This is a great find.
22:43 30 Dec 21
I got a gift card for a massage from my parents for Christmas for my first EVER massage! And wow, they did not disappoint. The receptionist was lovely and David, who performed my massage, made me feel comfortable and so relaxed I literally drooled (sorry about that lol) 100% worth your time and money, check them out!
21:29 25 Jul 21
Chris and the team here are simply exceptional. I’m a massage enthusiast and get probably 2 per month. This was my 2nd trip and this time I took my partner to get him a massage as well. I called and had a booking for 2. They remembered I like deep tissue ans remembered me as I walked in to the door. I’ve had memberships to both of the national chains and was quickly reminded how much I prefer local places over those. 1. You can’t beat customer service! 2. You are not going to get a non experienced therapist right out of school if you come here. My partner and I can’t wait to come back and I highly recommend this place.
17:02 22 Jun 21
Best massage I have ever gotten. Highly recommend Carolina. She was amazing!
01:40 18 Apr 21
I had a wonderful experience. From the moment I walk in for my appointment the place has an excellent ambiance. The BEST masseuse I have ever encountered Issac! Issac was phenomenal!!!! He made me feel at ease immediately, and provided me the best massage I ever had! He provided a relaxing yet strong massage with his capable hands to my knotted muscles. I love that he communicated through the session. I would recommend this place to anyone needing a sports massage.
02:55 15 Dec 20
The world is a better place after a massage with Iveth. I feel completely better, mentally and physically after each visit. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
15:05 30 Nov 19
I received a two hour massage from Iveth and it was the best massage I’ve ever received. It took me 15 minutes to get it together to drive home after. I highly recommend her. She knew exactly where I needed focused massage. Can’t wait to go back!
18:21 12 Nov 19
This establishment is soothing from the moment you walk in. I've been there twice now to get my chakras aligned. I had never had this done before. It's a different kind of healing that you may have not even known you needed. Isaac is wonderful and so professional. I have found my new go to place for "me" time! Thank you for giving your all to your clients.
19:26 17 Oct 19
The massage was amazing! I understand why the prices are a little more expensive, it’s worth it. Carmen is very good at what she does. There is a calming atmosphere in the whole place from the moment one walks in.
14:08 29 Sep 19
This place is a lil hidden jewel that I lucked up on. We were in search of a last min couples message and with it being our anniversary were hoping to get into a big fancy spa but many reviews didn’t support spending so much money for what many agreed wasn’t the best quality. So instead of looking for a fancy building I began to search for the best quality which got us here. It was my husbands first message and he was blown away by the service. Very polite, attentive, price reasonable, and message quality was 5 star. I will def book with them again when in the area and I recommend everyone try. They are amazing!
20:29 06 Aug 19
I just finished my session with Isaac. The guy is amazing, really professional, he knows how to treat the pain and how to approach the person. The office is relaxing and inviting. I highly recommend River Oaks Advanced Bodywork for any treatment you may need for your body and for your soul.
19:44 03 Feb 19
Itzel is fantastic! It was my first time getting a massage and she was great. I'm definitely a fan and will be back. The staff is very accommodating and nice. The room was exceptionally clean as if I was the first client of the day, yet I came in early afternoon. It's rare to find such a serene place in a busy city like Houston.
