What Our Clients Say About Us

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!

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.

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!

Larry Noto

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!

mia conway

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.

Lindsay Dawson

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.

Alim Stickney

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

Rosa Alcantara

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.

Teryl Nawezi

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!

Kelsey Reed

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!

regina vetter

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!

Stavawn Adams

I had a wonderful experience yesterday with TIna , The massage was one of the best I've ever had! She catered the lighting and everything for that matter to my liking. I will be back for sure. Five Stars!

Wonderful experience! Monica did a fantastic job at identifying the root cause of my back pains and already has me feeling improvements. Will definitely be going back.

Lolita Jones

I get the new mom massage for my 6th month post partum. I really appreciate and enjoyed the massage. Very relaxing!

Hellen Wong

Best massage I've had in my life!! The last massage I had years ago was from a different place and I walked away from that feeling like someone did a number on my back and I was sore and in pain for days. My massage at Tailored Relaxation proved that massages are supposed to be relaxing. Monica did an awesome job focusing on the area I asked her to, and provided the right amount of pressure to get rid of all my knots and kinks. Would totally recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Elena Raspitha

I feel so much better today! Monica really listened to my concerns and focused on the areas that needed attention. I will absolutely be a returning customer! 🙏🏼

nicole tyson

I have never felt so relaxed. Monica paid special attention to the needs of my body and my most tensed areas. You truly know when people love what they do and that's exactly what my experience showed. I cant wait to refer my family and of course for my next massage.


Monica is a MAGICIAN with her hands! I've been a client for 4+ years and have never been disappointed. I usually get the Traditional Massage or if I'm really knotty, the Hot Stone is amazing as well! Monica and her team take good care of your body and remember key details so as to make recommendations of measures that you can do on your own (e.g., stretches). Post COVID, they've implemented thorough and effective safety measures, all the way down to the lighting and flooring. I appreciate that due diligence and concern for both the staff and clients. Hands down the best spa and massage therapy in the DMV!


Tailored Relaxation is an AMAZING MoCo gem! The professionalism, spectacular service, and cleanliness is unmatched. Look no further for your massage needs. Thank Monica for the wonderful service.

Jody Jackson

I’m been a customer for some 4 hrs and has always receive a very high quality massage. The atmosphere of the facility is warm and relaxing.

Tom Squitieri

There is wonderful and then there is Tailored Relaxation. I have been rescued my Monica for years and lost touch when I moved. I was thrilled to return and locate her again. The relaxation of her team and venue begins when I park my car in the lot and walk toward the establishment — knowing the bounty that awaits once inside. The personal knowledge of clients, the skills and infusion of caring and health, the tone of the voices and music, all combine to a choir of comfort and harmony. Not pain remains by the time Monica is complete, muscle awake like never before, the mind dances merrily. Of course, I wish I could fall asleep here and then wake up and start with another caring session. Perhaps one day!

Andrea Le

A super cute little business in Kensington. My husband and I each got the 75-min Signature Massage - mine was pre-natal. Both of our massage therapists were amazing! They were really skilled, good pressure and hit all the right spots. Will definitely be returning. Location is in a nondescript office building - see photos!

Ron Lyons

I absolutely love this quaint, cozy spot! I felt relaxed the moment I walked in. No blaring lights and the music was soft and immediately put me at ease. The spa was clean and smelled amazing! What can I say about Monica?! She knows her stuff!! I loved how knowledgeable she is. I appreciated that she explained certain aspects of her techniques, and she actually gave me options regarding what essential oils I preferred. Did she beat me up badly? She sure did, but my body needed it and she knew it! I felt amazing when I got off the massage table and I will most certainly be back for more 🙂

Tailored Relaxation really knows how to take care of its clients. I planned a surprise romantic getaway with my wife and another spa fell through, so I had to book a different massage for us last minute. The professionals at Tailored Relaxation worked with me up to the night before to schedule a massage. My wife ended up getting a Prenatal massage and it was my first time, so I asked for a Swedish massage. Both of us were more than pleased with our relaxation. The therapists really took care of us and made our day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great massage.
