  • Josh K. 
    “The folks at PRESS do much more than just provide a great massage. They'll help answer your questions about your physiology, identify things you can choose to work on (or not) regarding posture, flexibility, strength, and other behavioral changes…”
  • Zachary Martz
    “Always a fan of this local massage parlor - after a bit of a rebrand and additional locations they focus on professionals trying to amend poor self care - lol - beside this the staff is super friendly, they are attentive and the locations are clean. Highly recommended.”
  • Janelle G.
     “This was my first time at Press and I'm so pleased with my massage by Joseph.. He was professional, calm and made sure I was comfortable. Definitely recommend this spot for a little relaxing getaway from the busy streets of NYC. I absolutely will be returning :)”
  • Van Chamberlain
    “Sarah is a true healer. Nice space and really kind reception. Plan on going back.”
  • Brittany Olsen
    “Truly the best massage experience I’ve ever had! Grace has magic hands and was able to find tension in my body that I didn’t know was there. I left absolutely euphoric. I’ll definitely be back!”
  • Nadia
    “I originally booked an appointment at PRESS because I was desperate for some stress relief and to feel more connected to my body during a very difficult time in my life. However soon after the first massage, I bought a package and now get a massage fairly regularly. The people who work the front desk are all very kind. I always book with Ryan (he is amazing!) but I’m also sure all the other massage therapists are fab. I highly recommend for anyone looking for some selfcare.”
  • Andrea LaRondelle            
    “Had a wonderful massage with Yelena today! She is a highly skilled massage therapist with a wonderful technique and attention to detail. Highly recommend!”

Union Square

  • Brittany Morgan
  • “I recently had neck pain and decided to try PRESS Massage in Union Square. From the moment I walked in, I felt cared for and welcomed. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, and the massage therapist was knowledgeable and professional…” 

  • Kelly Chiang
  • “Personalized massage works great for me; I can have the therapist target different problematic areas depending on how I feel day of session. They check in every now and then to see if I'd like to adjust pressure. I appreciate the prompts, I'm generally not talkative during a massage, esp when facedown on the headrest. Thank you!”

  • StarBoy Ramses
  • “I had a great time with Xavier. I recommend him because he has great technique and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed…”

  • Michala “Mobile Massage of KC”

  • Daniel T.

  • Susan Alvarez
  • “I cannot rave about this place enough. The little maze to find the studio is worth it and just adds to the suspense…wonderful and knowledgeable massage therapists lie ahead. My neighborhood go-to.” 

  • Booth Dickenson

Look no further, you have found your go-to spot from here on out!”

  • Brittany Morgan 
  • “I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a massage at Press Massage in Columbus Circle. I had suffered from chronic back pain for months, and decided to give this place a try. The atmosphere was very relaxing, and the staff was incredibly friendly and professional. My therapist listened carefully to my concerns and asked me questions to gain a better understanding of how my back pain could best be addressed…”

  • Ashley Long
  • “I brought my mother here for a massage when the hotel spa was closed. Lucas did her massage and he was wonderful. He was kind and gentle, avoiding areas we told him were too sore and helping her complaints of neck and back problems, even when she could not lay on her stomach. The studio is tucked into a converted apartment. Everything was spotless and calming. And the price was outstanding. Highly recommend it.”

  • Mackenzie Simons
  • “Love this place! I’m not a big massage person but I had the most amazing experience at the Columbus Circle location today. Valeska is incredible and they even took time to talk me through which muscles were causing me problems.”

    Targeting chronic muscle pain and stiffness, our deep tissue massage employs firm pressure and focused techniques to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue. This therapy is ideal for releasing tension and promoting optimal muscle function.
