"I was given a massage by Charles Dube. He's a rare breed who seems to intuitively know what my body needs, while also making the massage feel really good. Usually massages kind of hurt because I need heavy pressure, but not his. I've been looking for a massage therapist for a regular visit to replace mine who retired.
I've chosen Charles.
Thank you so much." - Laura T.
"I saw Srebrina for a prenatal massage. Of course, physically, I felt much better when I left the massage. However, I can't underestimate how Srebrina made me feel more confident, nurtured and respected. Does that make sense? Throughout my pregnancy, I've realized that people do not hesitate to comment on my body (not in a hurtful way, but that they feel entitled to speak or comment or ask me about my body). Srebrina made me feel empowered, happy and respectful of my body (not judgmental or suspicious). It was very powerful for me." – Amy K.
“Noni is great! Really relaxing massage! She is not only skilled as a massage therapist, but she understands the unspoken art of conversation during a massage: being perfectly attentive and not overly talkative.”
“Merle was amazing and was completely attentive and in tune to my needs. I was able to relax and breathe and felt renewed again! Missi and her massage therapists are great, eco-friendly, and a great local company that supports local! Thank you!”
"The atmosphere is very personal and artistic. Ask for Srebrina, she is great!"
"Noni was excellent! She did an amazing job. I hope to schedule another appointment with her soon."
“I have walked in with horrible pain From a motorcycle accident.
Missi has strong hands!
I leave feeling lighter.
Less pain. Sometimes.. elevating pain completely
The practice is clean.
Which is important to me.” Rachael E.
“When it comes to receiving a great massage, I couldn't imagine a better mix of deep nudging of those crunchy tight knits in my shoulders, paired with Missi's soothing and gentle touch. Phew-- needed that and look forward to return visits!” – Lisa L.
“The very best!!! I can even breathe more easily after my appointment with Missi, which I don't completely understand, but boy is breathing nice. So good!” – Shannon D.
“Missi is simply wonderful! Noni and Liz are just excellent! The atmosphere is soothing and comfortable. I feel like a new person after each time I am there. I will be back for sure!”
“I knew an experience at MIssi Kibelbek's would be amazing, since I went there recently for a delightful massage and wrap by Missi herself and it was really wonderful. I knew I'd be back - and when things got really stressful for me in the past few weeks I knew it was time for me to return. I booked a 90-minute massage with Merle Davison because it was the perfect time for me and what a gift of serendipity that was! It came as no surprise at all to me that Ms Davison is also a sculptor, as I knew I was in the hands of a talented artist from the very start. With all of her intuitive and skillful maneuvers, I was able to relax in a much more profound way than I've been able to in a very long time. I've still got "work" to go, but this is the kind of job I'll gladly pay to do - because so long as I am on her table, she will be "Magic Merle" to me! (Added bonus: as an artist myself, I love that I can support a local business, get a FABULOUS massage, and contribute to the livelihood of another artist as well - win/win/win!)”– Christina R.
“Missi is incredible!! I've seen her from everything from pre wedding prep, to triathlon training & recovery, to simply relaxation. She's the BEST!” – Elysia M.
“Liz Ulrich is the best I've found for excellent body work. She has great hands, a wealth of knowledge, and (unlike others at different massage salons) doesn't try to chat you up while you are trying to enjoy the silent luxury. If I had the money, I'd go every week!” – Kathleen B.
“Missi is a master at work. If you want to take a trip to heaven visit Missi Kibelbek of Bodywork Studios.” – Toni J.
“Missi Kilbelbek is an AMAZING massage therapist. I am confident the rest of her team are also skilled therapists. The rooms are SPACIOUS (something you do not find often), warm, inviting. Missi asked me to come early to my appointment, as all massage therapists do when you have not seen them before, and she took time to go over the questionnaire I completed to confirm she had a good understanding of my challenges and what I was looking for from massage therapy. The session was amazing. One of the best. I will certainly be going back to Missi, and I heartily suggest others try her, or the other massage therapists, out!”
“I bought this for my wife and she was blown away. Definitely worth a trip for an hour.”
“Missi is awesome. This time I had Merle. She was equally awesome. I drive all the way across town for them because they are unparalleled in Baltimore.”
“Lovely experience yesterday with Merle. All my massages have been great. Last time it was a body butter and massage with Missi. Try this studio, you will love it”
“Liz was a very sensitive and intuitive therapist. It is difficult to find a massage therapist who is capable of doing therapeutic massage as opposed to "spa" massage so I am very happy to have found Liz. Thank you for the great service!”
“Liz was very professional and gave me an excellent massage. Have already scheduled a return visit.”
Missi is a gem for the Baltimore community! She uses many years of experience and knowledge to help her clients relax and feel refreshed. She has a gentle touch, yet strong hands to help work out any tension you may have. She also uses amazing organic products that never feel too greasy or heavy. Her studio is an oasis in which one can relax and escape from a stressful day. She goes above and beyond to provide the best experience for her clients. She will heat the massage table on cold days, offer you a bottle of refreshing water after the massage, and she will send you will a personalized baggy of bath salts to take home for a later soak. I have seen Missi for many massages over the last few years and I highly recommend her to everyone! – Jesse D.
There are not enough words to explain Missi's talent. I feel as if in her industry, there are massage therapist, and there are healers. Missi is a true healer. She knows exactly how to increase your circulation in ways that will find and open any mental blocks I may have at the moment. Every time i leave her studio, I feel refreshed, both in body, and in mind. Her studio is calming, in every way imaginable, from the lavender smells, to the soft, and cozy sheets, to the delicious ice cold, glass bottled water she serves you. The first time I went to Missi was after making major dietary changes in my life after having my 15 month old son, in November of 08. I really feel her therapy gave me the energy to kick start my new diet program in the right way. As I never once stressed over the changes I had to make, because I started it with a clear mind. – Melissa Y.
Missi is a great massage therapist....she doesn't just go thru a 'routine' massage with you, but rather asks questions about problem areas YOU may be having, or spots that you may want concentrating on during the massage. It feels very customized, b/c it is! I also appreciate that she recognizes things going on with my body that I may have not realized myself, and gives me tips for helping myself, in day to day life, for problem areas that she finds. Her studio space is very relaxing, and you can tell that she pays attention to EVERY detail--the linens, the music, making me, the client feel welcome with tea or spring water...... and especially the great lotions and potions she uses in the massage (the aromatherapy powders she adds to the massage lotion are divine!). – Erin W.
Thank you so much for the massage today! It makes me feel better just to have the situation back there explained to me--don't know why, but I like to picture what's going on with my muscles. I will certainly be back, and continue to refer you to friends! – Hilary H.
"You’re a miracle worker!" – Darcy H.
"What a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Missi was down to earth and welcoming. I will definitely be making another appointment and passing on her information to friends." – Brittany W.
“It was a sublime experience. My skin feels so smooth and your hands are like magic on sore, tense muscles. I would gladly recommend you to anybody looking for a caring, competent practitioner.” --Marianna M
“It is great! My skin was soooo soft for days!” – Audrey B
“I just wanted to say thanks! I got the sugar and scrub last night and Missi was amazing. Not only did I make another appointment before I left but I have already told my friends. My skin feels amazing. I can't wait to get a full massage!” – Jessie B
“I am floating. No more aches. And the shea butter wrap? That was just the icing on the cake. Thank you, lady, for making me feel so good.
you. are. the. best.” – Kathleen M
“Thanks so much! I am a relaxed piece of melted flesh--I loved the shea butter treatment on top of the fabulous massage--all my knots gone snap, crackle, POP!” – Erin W
“Thanks for the great massage!! I'm already recommending you to friends. Oh and by the way, I'm drinking lots of water tonight :) I can't wait to come back after Thanksgiving!!” – Nicole F
“I got the sugar glow and Shea Butter body wrap yesterday and loved it. Missi was great - her massaging was to die for. My body felt so good walking out of there and my husband couldn't believe how smooth my skin was that evening. My skin still feels so good. Recommend to Baltimore residents - support this local good business.” – Kirsty K
"Thanks! and thank you for arranging for me to meet again with Liz! She is wonderful! I am new to the Hampden area and you have a customer for life! :) " - Kathleen K.
