Therapeutic Massage Therapy Sessions

What to Expect

Massage therapy has been associated with a variety of health benefits, both physical and mental. According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the physical benefits of massage therapy include improved circulation, decreased muscle stiffness, decreased joint inflammation, better quality of sleep, quicker recovery between workouts, improved flexibility, less pain and soreness, and strengthened immune response. Additionally, it has been found to help reduce stress, lower anxiety, improve mood, and increase relaxation, as well as provide mental health benefits. Research from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) suggests that massage therapy may be helpful for conditions such as low-back pain, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia, with some studies showing positive effects on pain reduction and improved self-reported physical functioning.

Therapeutic Massage for Migraine relief and chronic neck pain and stiffness
We highly appreciate feedback from our clients! We look forward to hearing from you too!
“Wow, such an amazing experience with Ja’Net at A Noticed Difference! She took the time to listen, understand, and deliver high-quality tailored massage therapy to my 32+ week pregnant body that REALLY needed it. Highly highly recommend!”
“This place is named appropriately! I’ve had a variety of massages and my visit this afternoon with Erin was amazing and among the best. The session focused on my chronic areas and almost immediately I felt relief. I would definitely recommend.”
“The relaxing environment wraps you in a warm hug. This is not some hoity-toity massage parlor and is a boutique style establishment. The therapists here at A Noticed Difference are professional and know massage techniques that diminish those knots. I definitely feel this unique massage place made a difference in my pain levels. I would recommend giving them a chance!”
“By far, this is one of the best massage establishments I’ve been to. The communication from the staff, regarding scheduling, was really nice and helpful. The place was easy to find. Everyone was super nice and friendly. As a new patient/client, I had a session with Leah, and she was outstanding. Leah’s knowledge and personableness were genuine, unlike other therapists that I’ve seen in the past. I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone who’s in the San Antonio area. Leah, et al., are truly life givers and healers, and they are exemplars of what a massage therapy place should be in all facets (e.g., customer service, personable, massages unique to one’s needs, etc.).”
“My first appointment and I’ll definitely be returning. I spend a lot of time sitting at a computer and my shoulders and mid-back suffer the brunt of it. The location is clean, quiet and welcoming. The correspondence is timely, personal, and friendly. Erin was amazing! I typically seek firm, deep massages and she was skilled at recognizing the trouble spots and meticulous in loosening and releasing the tension. Very friendly and professional. Exceeded my expectations.”
