Acupuncture at Dreamclinic with Timothy = AWESOME!.
WOW! I came in for an acupuncture session with Timothy last week, and it was absolutely amazing. I am actually very terrified of needles but thought I'd give it a chance. I am SO glad I did! Tim was incredibly soothing and talked me through the entire session. There was not a single point where I felt any discomfort or pain. He let me know what he was doing and consistently checked on how I was doing with each needle. When he put the first needle in my knee, I didn't feel the needle itself, but the lower half of my leg had this wonderful tingly sensation (almost tickly but better) and it felt heavy and warm. From there, it just kept getting better and better. He used this thing called a moxy (spelling?) stick which looks like a fat black cigar with a burning ember on the end, and it just made my knee feel like it was radiating warmth. He also worked in a little bit of massage and some cupping (by the way, cupping is the coolest feeling I have ever had).
Overall, the experience was absolutely the best. I walked out to my car feeling like skipping or jumping! I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for some pain relief or hoping to de-stress.
best massage with nicole!. nicole delivered a spectacular full body massage with attention to my wrist and forearm repetitive motion injury / computer use/. she applied confident strokes with pressure that i liked. i loved the heat that my body generated through the session. i told her she moved through the muscles like "thunder", with the right pressure, speed. towards the end i liked the slowing down faze when i got to truly absorb all the initial work on the "stuck" passages. nicole uses eye pillow that is so calming and soothing. very simple but so effective in "zoning out". music was right as well. what can i say, when in dream clinic, do ask for nicole! she is my massage therapist from now on! anita.
I highly recommend Dreamclinic. I came to Dreamclinic because a guy in my office said if I went there they would get rid of the pain in my shoulder/neck. I took the advice and... wow! The woman that gave me the massage was so nice and before she massaged me she found out exactly where I was hurting. Then she went to work! WOW. Layer after layer of my tight muscles seemed to melt. After the massage I didn't have any more pain! I couldn't believe it since my shoulder had been hurting for weeks. She also recommended some stretches for my problem shoulder. Everyone was so nice from beginning to end. As a bonus there's a lot of cool shops and restaurants within walking distance..
Uncomfortable first ever massage.
I had never had a massage before so I was pretty excited when my bf offered to book one for us. He had been to the Dreamclinic many times before so he suggested we go there together.
I was asked to come in ten minutes before my appointment to fill out paperwork. I didn't think that the questions that I was asked were terribly beneficial. Off the bat, I am disappointed that it wasn't a couples massage. But that is my bf's problem as he didn't explain things very well. He was whisked away before I was.
My biggest issue is that I should have been asked if I preferred a male or female practitioner. I had a male practitioner while my significant other had a female one. I was incredibly uncomfortable. I didn't know what to expect. I felt that this had all become so routine to whoever worked there that they forgot that this is a new experience for some people. I would have liked to know where I was going to be touched next. I felt incredibly anxious on that table. I even cried. There was nothing relaxing about it.
I had an anxiety attack in the car on the way home, and I broke two days after and had to see a doctor.
I don't think that I will be going back there. I am a little traumatized. I was really excited to have my first massage but I was disappointed. My bf said that we could try again somewhere else.
Great!!. I am a fan of Dreamclinic. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They recently renovated their site to include more services, which I think is awesome. They also have some therapists who accept insurance, which really helps me out since I incur sports injuries and require multiple visits in a short period of time. I have been a client of Dreamclinic for 3+ years.
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Whenever you walk into Dreamclinic you're walking into a world of relaxation right from the start. As you ascend their stairs to the front desk you're greeted with colorful, yet calming images, and a pleasant and helpful staff. With each step you take you find yourself leaving the stresses of the day behind. I love coming to Dreamclinic for this very reason. This was my 3rd massage that I've received from them and each experience has been wonderfully different. I previously came in for a 60-minute and 90-minute massage, but this time I scheduled only a 30-minute. I was concerned that this wouldn't be the most fulfilling experience since it typically takes me a 1/2 hour just to unwind and feel the benefits of the massage, but considering the fact that the relaxation starts from the moment you walk in the door, I felt like I was still getting value for every bit of time I was there. I met with a therapist named Amalia who had a great energy about her right from the start. She was very attentive and thorough in her initial evaluation and made me feel like I would be in good hands once the massage began. I liked the way she got right to the problem areas and was thankful that she did the best she could for my aching body despite the time constraints. I could tell that she put alot of energy into the areas that were of greater concern and appreciated that. Although I easily could have gone for another hour or more with her healing hands, I was very grateful for how positive the experience was, and as always, promise myself to incorporate more massage into my life after seeing how much even a 1/2 hour can make a difference. I can't wait for my next massage experience at Dreamclinic and certainly hope to visit Amalia again since I liked her positive energy and attentive techniques. Thank you Dreamclinic! :)
Hands down the best massage... ever.. I first started going to Dreamclinic last year, and had never had a professional massage. Despite that, I was totally wowed with the great experience I had there. Back then it was a little bit "hole in the wall" in a pretty ugly building with a consignment shop taking up the downstairs (not by their management or anything) and I was not sure what to expect, but my massage with Michele was incredible and she really put me at ease. Since then I've tried some other places for massage... chains like Massage Envy and Inspa and they are AWFUL in comparison. Maybe not even just in comparison, I think they are awful period. At Dreamclinic, the people actually seem like the WANT to be working there, and one of the therapists said they treat them really well which is something I care about. Anyway fast forward to Dreamclinic now, and it is no longer some hole in the wall, they had a great renovation this summer. I hear they will open the downstairs which they now own, soon and keep the reception desk down there. Can't wait! Quick listing of my fav's at the clinic: Michele, Drew, Haakon, Molly and Esther. They are so great. Carlie too, but its pretty hard to get in with her.
When you need a GOOD Massage. I have been here a number of times and this is becoming my favorite place I go to Olympus Spa sometimes when I really want to lounge in their heat rooms but I go to Dreamclinic when I need a GOOD massage. They will ask you what you want ? for me it?s always neck and shoulders ? and then that?s what you get!! I am getting hooked.
I was injured by their therapist and their management refuses to communicate with me.. On Dec. 13th I got a massage at the D.C. from "Barbara." It was a gift from my boyfriend & we went together. She was new- they were showing her around while I was in the waiting room. I told her I'd like a deep tissue massage & that I have relatively good pain tolerance. During, she only once asked me how the pressure was. I told her it was fine, but the pressure got stronger. She worked on the back of my head and neck for a long time & the pressure was uncomfortable. I felt like she was kneading bread dough, and there are really very few and very tiny muscles back there. She was pushing so hard that my forehead kept hitting the metal bar that was beneath the face pad. I kept readjusting it but she never asked why or if I was ok. I guess I felt like she was a professional and knew what was good for me, so I didn't speak up. After the massage I felt relaxed, but dizzy. My bf and I (he wasn't crazy about his massage either) left to get ready for a holiday party. Within a few hours I was completely incapacitated by a terrible migraine headache. My father, an acupuncturist, was luckily on hand to treat me for it, but I missed the party and slept all night. Next morning I could barely move & he treated me again. I missed 3 days of work before I called the D.C. to let them know what had happened. The areas she had worked so hard on were completely locked up. I spoke with "Meghan," who met with her therapists and got back to me the next day, saying that most likely something had "been released" during the massage and recommended I see a doctor. So I went to Dr. who luckily was able to offer some relief, though it was a few more days before I was even close to normal again. Since then they won't return my calls & clearly don't care about my well-being. I still have pain in my neck when I sleep on my right side & no sympathy or sense of responsibility from the owner, Larisa who's supposedly going to call me back someday. I still have heard nothing. Healers? No.
We care deeply about every single client. Regretfully, this review is simply NOT truthful. The client saw an experienced therapist, requested deep work, encouraged even deeper work, and gave no indication during the massage about feeling any discomfort. The client called three days later complaining of a headache. Contrary to what is stated in her review, she did get prompt and personal attention. The clinic manager expressed sympathy and offered a refund without hesitation, regardless of the actual cause of the headache. As the business owner, I also called and spoke with the client, again not reflected here. The client was clearly not interested in genuine dialog despite my best efforts on the phone with her for 30 minutes! We perform 1000 appointments a month and are consistently recognized for our industry-best service quality. It cannot be helped when someone posts defamatory comments here but I trust the truth can withstand an occasional agenda. - Dreamclinic Owner
This Clinic is Amazing From Start to Finish!. I just recently came through a major surgery, and didn't realize that I had issues happening with my muscles and joints that were causing major headaches...until I met Mollie at Dreamclinic. She knows how to tailor a massage to a client's situation unlike any other therapist I've visited; and there's been a lot of 'em throughout the years. It was unbelievably phenomenal how she listened so attentively, gathering the information that I was giving her to plan a strategy for the massage treatment. The therapy totally addressed the issues I was having, and I have at least two more visits on the books with Mollie; she is tremendously talented in the massage field. The clinic is very professional, comfortable and pampering all at once. It's hard to find a place like this anywhere. I highly recommend this place to anyone, and I would definitely book with Mollie if you want to get tailored therapy to address your joint/muscle/pain issues well.
