I once again have to sing Andrea’s praises: she’s no ordinary massage therapist &, therefore, you will not being getting an ordinary massage. She is thoroughly adept at a variety of modalities & she continues to educate herself in techniques so she can help her clients. She is the first massage therapist I’ve ever met who not only listens to my concerns, but is able to listen to what my body is telling her. Her genuinely caring nature shines through from the time she excitedly meets you with new strategies to try that she’s been researching to help your specific problems to when she sends you out with valuable advice for your at-home care. I can’t speak highly enough of her as a true professional! Book, book, book!

Great service! Andrea was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job on my massage. Will definitely return and recommend others!

Wow! I have been getting massages for YEARS and have never been put to sleep from pure relaxation. I’m typically a ball of stress, but Joanna put me right to sleep for a good 5 minutes mid-massage. I’ll definitely be going back.

I had my very first massage ever today! I threw my back out on Tuesday (I’m 23, send help), and had been in such incredible pain for days. I finally decided to go get a massage.The inside of the office/massage studio is extremely comforting and relaxing. You could smell the wonderful oils all the way into the hallway, before stepping in. The ambience was absolutely lovely, with dimmed lights and gentle music. I was glad it didn’t seem like a doctor’s office or medical area. My wait time was only about 2 minutes, even though I was early! I let Isaac know my problem area, and his massage therapist, Joanna, took care of me.She gave me a full body massage with hot stone therapy, was very sweet and an excellent masseuse. Let me tell you, I transcended into a different being during my massage. Mind blowing.Everyone was extremely professional, everything was very clean (the sheets on the massage bed smelled very lovely), and the oils were relaxing and not overpowering. I could tell my comfort and well-being were put first here.The best part is, it reduced my back pain by about 70%! I will 100% be back next week for a follow up 😊

Received a massage here and it was a wonderful experience. Didnt feel like one of those mundane factory massages that alot of places do. They actually asked me what areas I'd like them to focus on vs just asking me to get on the table. Everyone was wearing a mask so that was a plus!
02:58 29 Aug 20
I had a chance today visiting the river oaks advance bodyworks. I had a pleasure of meeting one of there therapist Itzel. She was very knowledgeable of her work, polite and professional. The place was very clean and time management. I will be back here and recommend this to my friends.

I jus moved to Houston two months ago and visited this high rated place. David is an awesome massage therapist. He really listens and applies right pressure according to my needs. I felt very relaxed and was very impressed during the session with him It was my second time with him and all tension from my specific muscles were targeted, I will definitely book with him again. The receptionist Chris have always been very polite, respectful, and during my booking appointments i have always been happy with customer service they always accommodate me with timings and days I require.

I definitely recommend this place! I could not sleep for two days. The second night I had tension on my shoulders, neck, and scalp. This was my first time getting a massage and it was amazing! Andrea, my massage therapist, explained everything that she was doing and gave me a lot of recommendations to help improve my overall posture. Will come again!

Best couples massage ever! Stephanie and Minerva are amazing! Will definitely be going back on a regular basis and recommend to everyone.
12:47 17 Jul 20
Sabrina was absolutely wonderful! I have had a ton of facials but hers was by far my favorite. If you are in need of a little self care during these crazy times then I recommend going to see her.
12:19 15 Jul 20
The couples massage was excellent! The MTs were very accommodating. Front desk was so helpful and nice.
23:08 10 Jul 20
This place lived up to the reviews. My boyfriend and his family gifted me a gift certificate here, and I left feeling like I was on clouds. Joanna was my massage therapist, and she did wonders on my chronic neck pain. I can actually turn my head without pain for the first time in months. I got the integrated session with hot stones and cupping, and I LOVED it. I'll definitely be back. Thank you to the entire staff!

Had an acute flare-up of some chronic pain. They were able to get me in on the same day. Maria did an excellent job working through my knots and stretching me out. As an athlete, I’m used to deep tissue massage. I was pleased that she checked in with me regarding the pressure and amount of stretch. I did not go here for a “relaxation” massage- I went here for bodywork. The ambiance was calming and the service was just what I needed. I’ll be back.
18:28 29 Feb 20
Excellent technique and relaxing environment. Ask for Joanna, what a treat to have her work on my stressed body. Joanna wad gentle but firm when needed to work out issues. The array of discounts, packages, and location make of this place a very attractive destination.

First time at River Oaks Advanced Bodyworks and I was very impressed, wonderful atmosphere and polite/professional staff. I felt welcome and at home from the moment I walked in. The waiting area is very comfortable and it is all hidden away in a pretty innocuous building. The comfortable waiting area is barely necessary as the wait was incredibly short as the massage therapist Noe was quite prompt.My first full-body massage went wonderfully. I felt at ease and very comfortable with the massage therapist from beginning to end. The aromas, warmth and dim lights all made the atmosphere perfect for relaxing.Would recommend!

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.

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!

Just came back from my first massage at this facility. The studio is easy to find. It is located In an office complex like another previous reviewer said. It is not a grand facility with chandeliers and expensive fittings but this facility has everything needed. The staff are professional. My therapist Raidel was great.It’s hard to work on someone “cold” as in the first time. These first appointments are where disconnect happen. None of that here. Raidel perfectly assessed what I needed. Delivered a massage that had just the right amount of pressure and stretching according to the trouble spots I told him. He asked me how I was doing, helped me with breathing as I tend to hold my breath during massage. He made me feel comfortable, safe, and cared for within minutes. Trust is very important in massage.I got up from the table feeling like a million bucks. Thank you I feel like a new man. I am energized.I am an amateur bodybuilder that is serious about the gym and I needed A thorough full body massage with focus on shoulder pec attachment points and a few sore spots on my back from knots or adhesions.I will book again.Everything at this facility was clean, spotless, smelled great from the treatment rooms to the beds to the sheets and supplies used. Perfect.This is not a mega facility. If you expect to have all the fittings of a full spa with all sorts of creature comforts this may not be your best bet but for me I want treatment from a professional in a quiet, comforting, clean environment. So I got everything I needed.The prices are also fair and competitive with market rates.My followers are used to seeing me be critical about establishments so I will be fair: If I had to make a suggestion I would say having some profiles of massage therapists on staff on the website is a huge plus for us first timers.Thanks for providing online booking, thanks for being open on a Sunday until 6pm and thanks for fitting me in!

I am a runner and I got to the point where I needed to find a new masseuse. I found this place interesting, it wasn't one of the many chains that we have in Houston, so I decided to check it out.The booking process was easy, the receptionist was very friendly and the whole experience felt effortless.I had my reservations trying this new place when you go try a new massage therapist or any new service provider it can go anywhere from a bad, a decent or a very good first experience. I got to work with Minerva and was great! She was very attentive and accommodating to what my body needed. I felt like I got a mix of deep tissue/sport and relaxation at the same time. it all depended on what my body needed.I am happy I found this little gem and I am looking forward to seeing Minerva again!
17:50 03 Jun 19
I've been here about 4 times now and I've seen different people-men and women- and everyone has been wonderful. I always leave feeling amazing. The prices are worth the time and effort you'll receive. They listen to your needs and try to make sure they can help you with whatever your reason is for coming to them. The office staff is courteous and professional. I really appreciated when I received a call telling me one of the staff members was back so I could make an appointment. The online system is great too. Very easy to make appointments but wish you could edit and change appointments there too but I get why this may be complicated.

Really enjoyed my reflexology appt. booked a full body massage right after.
01:46 17 May 19
My masseur was Saralina for my first ever deep tissue massage. I came in from feeling tight muscles around my body (traps/calf’s/quad) from working out/running. She is very good at what she does, and knows how to loosen every area and you can easily tell she has been doing this for a long time. She is very nice and super strong! Highly recommend
20:35 07 May 19
I had given up on massages after frequent disappointments at various establishments. However, on the recommendation of a friend I decided to try River Oaks Advanced Body Works and quickly became born again! Itzel was able to isolate and remedy the discomforts in my back and tendons without needing any instructions or guidance as to where my trouble spots were. I highly recommend this spot to you. Whether you’re new to getting massages or ready to throw in the towel with massages that just aren’t cutting it.

This place is incredible. I went for a second time to treat myself after doing a couples massage here with my gf almost a year ago and this was one of the best massages I've ever had. The first time I had Minerva and the second time, Itzel and both were fantastic therapists. The prices are a tad bit higher than the chains but I promise the experience is well worth it. I'd recommend this place over anywhere in Houston for an amazing, relaxing experience.
00:07 20 Apr 19
Iveth is amazing! I came in with shoulder pain and she applied the perfect amount of pressure to work on my knots. Great mix of recovery and relaxation. Definitely coming back soon.
