What Our Clients Say About Us

Great massage therapist!

This was one of the best massages I have ever had. Monica was clearly skilled and amazing at what she does. All of the little extra details and attention to the problem areas I mentioned are what I am always looking for in a place for relaxation and therapeutic relief. This plane is a hidden gem in Kensington and I cannot wait to go back. I am telling all my friends!

superb experience

I have been to Tailored Relaxation for almost 7 months now, and I get massages regularly. Judy is amazing and the whole facility is so calm, clean, relaxing. Monica, who is the owner is so fast at responding to questions and so accommodating. I love this place and can't wait for my next massage.

I highly recommend Tailored Relaxation. I have suffered with chronic headache and neck pain most of my life, and more recently with low back pain. I have seen chiropractors, surgeons, and physical therapists, but none have given me the relief that a one hour deep tissue therapeutic massage at Tailored Relaxation did. Monica and Judy are very knowledgeable, pleasant, and professional. Will definitely continue. Wish I had done this sooner.

Monica was personable, accommodating and professional. The establishment is clean and inviting with a calming atmosphere. Me and my mother went on a Friday evening and she treated us both with such care! We will definitely be looking to book with her again.

Tailored Relaxation is a hidden gem. From the ease of using the online booking site (with a gift certificate!!) to convenient location and finally, one of the best massages I've ever received. Judy started the session by asking me if I had any concerns, injuries, and if I wanted her to focus on specific areas. She listened to my requests and concerns and made adjustments at different times during the massage. By the end of the 60 minutes, I was so relaxed and could feel the tension released. I highly recommend Tailored Relaxation and will happily refer friends.

Great experience here with Therapist Judy! Am anxious to book my next appointment. Tailored Relaxation is a restful, rejuvenating, refreshing place, with great ambience and a professional staff.

I had such a great massage here. The space was serene and comfortable. Judy asked me questions about what I was looking for, and any injuries I may have had. I'm going to be going back regularly.

My massage therapist was very friendly and did a great job in responding to my requests for particular areas of stress and tension. Would absolutely recommend others in the area to come to Tailored Relaxation. Makes a great birthday gift, as I found! 🙂

I had a wonderful first experience at Tailored Relaxation! Judy did an amazing job and I felt so relaxed and well taken care of during my appointment. I can't wait to come back for another massage soon!

Just an amazing massage and left feeling so very relaxed. Monica is an absolutely terrific massage therapist! I will definitely be back!

I reviewed wrong place

Absolutely an outstanding experience!

**Updated Review (9/3/2022) I went back last week and the second time around was much much better. The service and massage were excellent. The owner, Monica, went above and beyond. Now I understand why this place has so many 5 stars. I would highly recommend Monica as a massage therapist. The first therapist I had, however, did fall a bit short of my expectations. I also really like the location: easy to get to, plenty of parking and a soothing atmosphere the second you walk into the door. The refreshments and post-massage snacks were a really nice touch.

Fabulous space, technique, and experience. I received the signature massage and felt so rejuvenated! Monica is a terrific therapist.

I was having some back and neck pains and looked for a place to get a good massage before going into work. It was really one of the best massages I've ever had. Monica is very knowledgeable and intuitive when doing the massage. I feel so much better than I did earlier today. The facility is clean, comfortable and smells great. I will definitely be back. She even gave me nice snacks at the end . I'm super happy with my service.

I hosted an outdoor "Sunset Spa" event for 10 women, myself included. Monica and team were extremely professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and skilled at what they do! Monica felt the tension in my body and took time and care to give a great deal of attention to those areas. They were heavily focused on cleanliness and very pleasant to work with. The atmosphere was extremely soothing and relaxing, and the massages and stretches were so amazing, we did not want the evening to end! My girlfriends and I continue to rave about our incredible experience! I will absolutely continue to support this business and highly recommend Monica and Tailored Relaxation!

Best head, neck, and back massage I've ever had! Highly recommend!

Very professional. Monica is a great masseuse.

Great ambiance and the room was comfortable. Monica was great. Super relaxing and was very informative about the oils being used and what they were for.

One of the best massages EVER. Really tailored to my specific needs. I highly recommend this place!!! Sue C

One of the best massages I've ever had. Monica was simply amazing. I can't wait to see her again!

In 2018, when life events became overwhelming and challenging, I desperately needed intervention to loosen and relax my tense body. It was fortuitous to find Tailored Relaxation (Kensington, MD) so close to home to get stress-relieving massages. I have been a member since 2019. There was a break in 2020, due to the pandemic, then I renewed in 2021 when it was safe to return. I have been rewarding myself with monthly massages, and have increased to weekly or bimonthly when needed. Appointments are easy to schedule online. When changes are necessary, it has been easy to adjust online, by email or telephone. The facility is clean, quiet and serene. The music and ambiance promote relaxation, and the massage tables are clean and comfortable. The rest rooms are also very clean. They offer water (regular or sparkling) and snack if you need it after treatment. One very important factor for me is the ease in getting there, and there’s plenty of parking spaces – no stress added before getting treatment. Monica, the owner, has been terrific and accommodating. She has a confident, low-key and welcoming demeanor. She is gifted nurse turned massage therapist, and is very sensitive and tuned in to your muscles as she massages. If you forget to share any issues with her, she will detect it without fail. She and other therapists constantly check for optimum pressure. One service that might be popular to add is the ability to stay and sleep a bit after the massage – it has been truly relaxing every time, you don’t want to leave the bubble. I have also worked with other staff therapists, Elisa (pre-pandemic) and Tina – and they provided great service as well. I highly recommend trying out Tailored Relaxation.

Awesome first experience! Very welcoming & walked out feeling brand new 🙂

BEST MASSAGE EVER! Tina was amazing and she made sure I was relaxed.

Excellent massage! Highly recommend!

Great facility, excellent staff (Tina), will definitely return soon. Highly recommended!

I loved the CBD scrub treatment. I am a military veteran with multiple injuries and this helped to relax and relieve some of my pain. Coupled with massage this is going to help me in my recovery process. I would recommend this to everyone who is looking for relaxation and relief!

Wanting to treat myself with a relaxing massage, I searched several top-rated Google options near me and connected with Tailored Relaxation and Monica. I would definitely recommend Tailored Relaxation, Monica and her services. The hot stone massage was amazing (warm, relaxing and therapeutic), the salon was cozy, clean and welcoming. Monica was prompt in her response, very professional and attentive to me.  I appreciated that she spent some time with me prior to understand my needs, that she implemented Covid-19 protocols so that she and her clients feel safe, and that she didn't make me feel rushed so that I could focus on relaxation. Looking forward to returning soon to try the facial.

Had great massages with Monica and Tina this weekend. The studio was small, but clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. I prefer more pressure during a massage, and Monica was certainly able to deliver that while also making sure that I was comfortable. Will definitely be returning.

Absolutely amazing & a great value. I booked the date night package for my wife for Mother's Day. Monica & Tina are absolutely amazing. The dual 120 minute massages left me sleeping, that is how good they are. My wife had to wake me cause I was that relaxed. The accompanying hors d'ourves and dinner was an excellent feature of the package. My wife was very pleased by the private experience. Will definitely be returning, not just for the massages, but for also special occasions. A hidden gem right in Kensington.

Amazing service. Amazing therapists. I highly highly recommend

I found Monica to be a delight to talk with while enjoying my lymphatic drainage massage. She is professional, knowledgeable, and so very like able. I enjoyed the entire experience! The massage was very relaxing, considering the swelling/discomfort that came along with the surgery. Mother’s Day for mom and sister come in handy with Monica and her staff. I recommend this place.

Felt safe and warm, Monica was lovely. One of the best massages of my life.

I have been going to Monica at Tailored Relaxation for several years. The location is beautiful, clean and relaxing. The massage is incredible. I’ve seen her for massages to relax, as well as through and post pregnancies. I have always left feeling pain-free and rejuvenated. I have never had such a consistently positive massage experience as I have had with her. Highly recommend!

Tailored Relaxation is the ultimate pamper experience! I love the aroma therapy, the foot treatment as part of the massage, and the high quality service. Monica is a gifted massage therapist, and the spa is always spotless, smells lovely, and is decorated really cute. They are doing an excellent job of following safety protocols during this pandemic, making customers feel comfortable and safe when there. 10/10 would recommend!

Monica is very professional, listens and cares about her clients. She knows what muscles need work and applies the right amount of pressure. Highly recommend her!
