Easy to access from Stadium/Chinatown station.I had a 60min foot massage and highly recommend Ayaka.She did a good strong pressure to each my heavy point and I totally relieved my tired body.Thank you so much Ayaka-san:)

I have had inconsistent experiences. And this was a better one! Although Haruko's shoulder massage was too "light", her foot massage was unbelievable. That experience is what reflexology was all about! She hit every appropriate touch point on my foot with firm pressure. The only feedback is the confirmation process. I booked late the afternoon before and later that night (between 7pm and 8pm), there were 3 phone calls from them (I was at a movie) with no voice mails. I agreed to the cancellation policy so there was no need to be so incessant and to call so late. Leave a voice mail or simply email me! I shall return. More...

We had a great experience. They were able to accommodate the 5 of us for foot reflexology and deep tissue massage. The place was very clean, the people were friendly and effective in easing our sore muscles, and the ginger tea was a great finish to an already amazing experience. We will gladly return.

This place costs a few dollars more than another place I considered, but my wife and I were swayed by the positive reviews of the atmosphere. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is incredibly soothing. Also, the courteous service and little extras make you feel like a pampered guest. My therapist was Melissa. She was warm, friendly, and focused, and has a penetrative touch. My neck is a bit sore from the intensity of her pressure points during the 15 min neck/shoulder massage, but it is also very limber now. I didn't say anything at the time because I thought it was a good pain. I loved the deep pressure massage I received on my feet, and I felt great walking around town later on. That said, my massage was roughly eight hours ago, and right now my toes feel like they were burned. I enjoyed her deep touch, but perhaps I should have asked for a little less pressure. Totally my fault for not saying anything! More...

We were in Vancouver for our mini-honeymoon and absolutely love foot massages. Barefoot Oasis did not disappoint! We received excellent, professional massages, and the spa setting, complete with green tea and cozy chairs felt relaxing and luxurious. So glad we came!

My husband and I went here twice and the service is always great!! We had foot massage with Yuki & Miyuki and they both did an excellent job. My husband and I felt so relax and just wish it can be longer. We are from out of town and this is our only place to go for massage. More...

I have come here quite a few times since September 2018 (either by myself or with my boyfriend). I've had massages from various masseuses there but by far my favourites over the last year have to be Karlie and Yuki.Today I had a 90 minute deep tissue massage with Karlie and she is so good. She is also so knowledgable and caring. I swear this is the first massage I've ever had where I was on the verge of falling asleep (because I was so relaxed!)Of course if Karlie or Yuki aren't available on days when I want a massage they have other staff members there and you could always see one of them (if appointments are available) and they are all so friendly. The receptionist is always warm and friendly as well. I love this place! More...

I pretty much fall asleep every time I come. I live in the neighborhood and love that I can pop in whenever want to treat myself. They have really accessible hours and lots of difference services. For the price point, great relaxing environment (no therapists talking to each other during your massages :) ). Also enjoy the second treat upon leaving...Pocky. I have not been disappointed with Karlie, Yuki, and Hiroko. More...

This place is awesome! Came in with my fiance early on a Sunday morning and it was so quiet and peaceful. We got to choose our chairs because there was no one else there so we chose the chairs away from the window. The foot massage was heavenly and the staff was so professional.  We had Miyuki and Markelly who were excellent! We can't wait to book another appointment and decided this might be something we will do twice monthly on a regular basis! More...

Called and asked about their Thai massage and I was greeted by a very pleasant man on the phone who was thorough and friendly. I had Luay for a one hour Thai massage and it was wonderful! They give you clothing for it and have a special room. It was a great experience and I only wish I booked for longer! More...

**Updating my review on 7.4.19**The spa manager reached out to me, upon reading my review here, and apologized for the discrepancy in the pricing. (Note: I've always said, I really think it speaks volumes of any company when the management monitors their Yelp reviews and uses customer comments and feedback as a tool to learn and grow and improve. Very professional). The manager informed me that they have fixed their website re: monthly specials listed so this problem never happens again, and he offered to refund me the difference in pricing for the spa services I enjoyed. Now THAT'S great customer service! More...

I absolutely recommend this spa. Bizu is an amazing masseuse and I will continue to book with him, and often. He has magic hands!! The atmosphere is so calm, and it’s cathartic just to sit and drink the tea they provide after.Highly recommend this spa!!!!! More...

I had insane leg pain & foot pain to the point where I couldn’t walk anymore. We googled the nearest reflexology and Barefoot Oasis came up (with glowing reviews), so we went. This was one of THE BEST spa experiences I’ve ever had. It was so relaxing, accommodating and overall comfortable. They got us in on a walk in and I was so grateful for how much pain I was in. After an hour long foot massage, I left pain free and was able to walk completely fine again. I wish I lived in Vancouver so I could do this regularly. More...

Wow...positively impressed. This is a cute little massage Oasis, as the name suggests. The physical location is clean, has nice background music and an overall positive relaxing vibe. My wife and I had massages here, a prenatal massage for her and a Shiatsu massage from me (from a gentleman from Japan). Both of us very very happy with the service and came out really relaxed!

This is the best massage place around. I was visiting Canada and was staying near by the place. I'd be living here if I could. The aesthetic alone is so wonderful. The price can't be beat for what you get. The lady was so nice and did exactly what I wanted. Everything was amazing and a great way to start my vacation! More...

My attendant, Yuki, was amazing. I had my first shiatsu massage, as I typically go for a traditional Chinese massage. I asked for a very firm, acupressure type healing and he was beyond my expectation. The facility was immaculate with a great relaxing atmosphere. More...

This was my second time at Barefoot Oasis (last one a couple years ago). I am glad we came back! The appointment was easy to book online, the space is still very welcoming - quiet, clean & beautiful and foot reflexology just the right amount of pressure and very relaxing. If I'm in the area, I will be back! More...

Amazing way to relax, get your feet massaged and unplug. Didn't plan ahead and wore your skinnies jeans? No problem! They give you one size fits all washed reusable pants so you can 100% enjoy your services. I have been here twice and it's so worth the treat for you mind and body. Highly recommended. More...

Very nice, relaxing experience, soothing and a pleasant pause in the normal hectic pace of life. I could see, if I allowed myself, taking a very good nap. Nice soft music and a mostly "quiet time" experience. First time I've done that and if/when I do come back to Vancouver, I'll do this again and try to book with Karlie, though I understand all the staff is very good at what they do. Thumbs up!!Dave Woodruff from SC USA More...

Booked an hr and a half long Swedish couples massage with my sister and I during our visit in Vanncouver. We had Vaia and Iryna who were both wonderful and attentive. We took the skytrain and the place was easy to find. Upon entering, the place was quiet with peaceful music playing. Prior to the massage, Vaia and Iryna asked if we had any areas to focus on and what type of oil we preferred. During the massage, they made sure we were comfortable the entire time. The massage was wonderful with just the right strength. Tea and water was offered after the massage along with Pocky. If we visit Vancouver again, we would definitely book again! More...

Such a great place! I woke up that morning with such a stiff neck, I couldn’t move side to side or up and down and I was in such pain. I didn’t have the time for a massage but they offer a chair massage for 30 and 45 mins, which was prefect for me. Iryna worked her magic, she worked deep into the knots and even advices at what could be causing such deep damage. Will definitely be going back to Iryna!! Thanks again!! More...

I had been here back in the Fall and, forgetting the name, I had accidentally booked an appointment at Footopia in the Tinseltown mall. When I arrived for my appointment at Barefoot Oasis yesterday and realized I had made it at the wrong place, I immediately phoned and cancelled my other appointment and hoped I could get a spot here that day. I was lucky enough to get a spot at Barefoot just a little over an hour later and they even called me to let me know they were running slightly behind which was very courteous of them.Anyway, I didn't select anyone but I had a slot with Melissa who really knows what she is doing! I had a 90 minute reflexology appointment (around $87 not including tip) which was amazing - the shoulder massage at the beginning (maybe 10-15 minutes long) during a foot soak targeted some serious tense spots and the time that followed I was in and out of sleep because it was so relaxing. I am on my feet all day and really appreciated the break. I came to the appointment wearing jeans and she realized I could be more comfortable with the linen-style pants they have for clients. Had such a great experience here, very easy to pass out and bliss out. I would suggest that they could frost-coat the windows so that you don't look out onto the street so much if possible, but it could be for safety reasons that they keep it transparent.  They do have curtains by the chairs that help make it feel a bit more private as well. I requested a spot away from the window and that made all the difference for me. Thank you Melissa + to the very pleasant gentleman (Alex?) who booked me in yesterday. Will be back for sure. More...

I usually prefer an RMT as my whole body is a mess, and of course my benefits would cover a portion of the fee. However when I'm feeling like I want to treat myself in a spa-like setting I will always choose barefoot Oasis.I was gifted a spa package of foot and body nearly three years ago and I have been coming back ever since. Karlie has been my body therapist since my first visit, and I will continue to request for her. Usually if I come in for a foot massage I have no preference who I see, however my last visit I had Karlie for my foot and body.. oh man she is great!!! When I get a foot reflexology massage (barefoot Oasis and other random foot massage places) my least favorite part was when they massage your back while you soak your feet. I would even request to skip it all together. I just always found it uncomfortable..Karlie certainly changed my mind!! I had a blissful experience from start to finish. I couldn't believe how relaxed I was and she hasn't even touched my feet yet. My partner has come with me a few times in the past and he was also very happy with every person he saw. So their staff is very consistent. I'm very picky and particular with my massages. So believe me when I say Karlie is amazing!!! More...

I write this review with much trepidation - only because it seems to be one of Vancouver's best kept secrets.  My first visit there yesterday was for a one-hour foot reflexology treatment and 90-minute massage.  And then I couldn't get enough. This is now my go-to place for massage.  Better than any massage I've paid for in Vancouver.  Relaxing experience, organic massages, amazing. More...

I booked a combo 1 hour reflexology followed by 1 hour body massage.Booking was a little confusing. The website froze on me as I put my credit card details in and when I called to clear things up, I had a hard time being clear with the receptionist. I would later see this was a pattern as the reflexology area is RIGHT in front of the reception desk and I could hear all the calls. All that being said, I was provided tea, water, some loose pants to change into as mine weren't the best, and package of Pocky. Adorable. Vaia was great and friendly. For the body massage, I was a bit uncomfortable on the table. I wish they had some softer blankets for your face in the face rest and to cover your eyes when you turn over. That's my only nitpick. After my services, I was offered more tea and a chance to sit for a bit and recalibrate before going outside. Lovely! Despite there being some issues I don't think the price can be beat for such a clean place with friendly lovely people. More...

I was pleasantly surprised by this spa! I went in for the first time last week for a deep tissue massage and Nettie did an amaaaaazing job! I've had my fair share of different massage styles in 4 different countries to date and with a high pain tolerance I definitely need someone to really work out my tension and Nettie did an excellent job and asked a couple times throughout how her pressure was which is very important! My mom and aunty got foot reflexology at the same time from ikiko and Nora and they said they will be back for sure and so will I. More...

This is my third time getting the hour-long deep-tissue massage with Karlie and every time she is just amazing!She is very intuitive, caring and considerate of her clients and she has the strongest hands in the Lower Mainland.The spa itself is always clean, the staff is always friendly, and my appointments are always on time.  You really do get your entire hour's worth (some places talk too much in the beginning and talk too much near the end, and you end up getting closer to 45 minutes instead of 60 minutes).I love that you get to relax with fresh hot cup of tea to soak in some of the calm zen you achieve after a wonderful massage and they never rush you out of there.This place knows what it's doing and I come all the way from PoCo just to see Karlie.Please note that Karlie is not an RMT and therefore probably not covered by your benefits, but I make the choice to see her just because it's a nice treat for myself once in a while and also, I really do appreciate her professionalism and her craft.Highly recommend this place!

Here's my review of our amazing Barefoot Oasis experience. First of all, what a gorgeous facility! I loved the aesthetic, and it was so clean and relaxing. They have really nailed the details that are so important to feeling pampered and getting away from the every day. The tea and cookies helped too Second: Iro. Wow. She is a treasure. She was absolutely professional, intuitive and so generous with her skills. We left super-relaxed, and with amazing sore spots the next day!

This was our second couples massage. Being in town for 2 months with a crappy bed in the rental it was much needed. Atmosphere is nice, clean and relaxing. First visit was a dream for me ( machiko was my tech ) My husband requested a deep tissue massage and had a male tech ( can't remember his name ) he was sore for 3 days . Not great . Second visit was for my husband excellent. His tech was Melissa . My second visit was again with Machiko, it was good ,but as her last appointment of the night I feel was poorer in quality with various levels of pressure, some of which were too soft and then too hard. She is a tremendously nice person and very professional but was a bit off point tonight. My biggest issue was that after we left and returned back to our apartment we got a call from them saying we had to return and pay more as they had undercharged. Before you ask how I didn't catch this in person , I need to say the place is extremely dark and I was in a happy post massage state of mind. Just pressed ok and add tip. Really took the happy mood out of my sails . My husband retuned to pay the difference and we were then both a bit miffed. Just glad we were in walking distance and didn't have to pay a taxi to turn around for this . I still recommend this place but be clear on what you want , and double check your bill More...

My husband and I came in the morning for deep tissue massage and was blown away by the exceptional experience. The owner and staff went above and beyond to ensure a harmonious and calming experience for their customers. From the moment we walked in, our mind and body just relaxed down by the scent of tranquilizing essential oil and woody ambiance. Hot ginger honey tea was served to warm up the body and then came the 90 min deep tissue massage. We both fell half sleep half hypnotized as the background zen music goes on. It felt like having a spiritual awakening vacation elsewhere while hacing your body healed and nourished at the same time. A hidden gem to have a little getaway from the hustle and bustle of urban life and noises. Stay mindful while relaxed. Grateful for this amazing experience! Hope to share this positive energy reservoir to other like minded friends!! More...

This place is a gem! I've been here twice for deep tissue massage and I'd say the experience is comparable to RMT sessions. Iro and Karlie are highly recommended! The service is excellent from start to finish and the staff are so good at making you feel taken care of and relax. Even the reflexology session included a little mini upper-shoulder massage which is a nice treat. More...

We went here on our last day in Vancouver and had an amazing couples massage. Everyone was very kind and the massage was super relaxing! A must try while in the city.

The prices have gone up, used to be less than $60 for an hour of reflexology. My guess it was around $55 for an hour and now it's at $62. Definitely pricier than other competitors. I started going here when they first opened, service and massages are always consistent. I've tried many places all over the lower mainland and barefoot is still my favourite place to go for reflexology. The small details are thoughtful and make the whole experience so much better. Also the neck and shoulder massage before the reflexology is amazing. Chair massages are in a weird spot where everyone can see you, would be better if it was in a more secluded area. More...

I really love this place. This is my go to place for affordable and good massage. I’ve been twice already and the staff are consistently giving great customer service. I took my mom and my boyfriend here since I enjoyed it so much! For $75, you really cannot go wrong with them. The deep tissue massage loosened up our knots and the atmosphere is just so relaxing.

85 mins reflexology with miss magic hands - Hiroko. Hands down, I just had the omg foot reflexology massage. Good pressure all around. She's very strong and very down to earth. The place is very very clean, organized, good classical oriental music and green tea. I thought about coming in twice a month to indulge and relax. What an experience. 5/ stars hands down. More...

I rarely write reviews but this one had to be done. I've been going to Barefoot Oasis for the last 2 months and absolutely LOVE IT! The space is clean, relaxing and perfect to go to when you need to wind down.I've had massages from Vaia, Karlie and Linnea and they are all great! I just had a 60 minute deep tissue massage from Linnea and a 45 minute foot reflexology with her yesterday and she really got into the knots. It was what my body needed. They KNOW what they're doing! I feel AMAZING today!I'm definitely going back. If I had to say one thing (although it's not a huge deal at all) is that the reception area and foot reflexology area is very close together. If they could somehow put a divider or wall that separates it to give more privacy, I think it would take this spa to another level! Just a thought ;) More...

This is definitely an oasis for relaxation. Love this place! You are offered/receive tea and Pocky (chocolate flavoured) when you're seated. You get a neck and back massage before the foot massage begins. The staff are well versed in traditional reflexology. So versed, they'll ease you into a deep nap. Super friendly reception and the cleanest massage place I've been to. More...

Just had the best foot massage ever here with two friends. We booked online, it was so amazing and relaxing. A couple bucks more than the other places but for good reason. Generous shoulder rub before your treatment while your feet soak. Then tea, pocky, a comfy recliner and blanket, while you are transported to bliss by their amazing hands! We feel like we are walking on clouds and we will be making Barefoot Oasis a repeat tradition. Thanks so much for the great service! More...

This was my first time trying foot reflexology and it was a wonderful experience. As soon as i walked in, I was immediately greeted by staff and could feel the relaxing atmosphere. The staff was very knowledgeable and instructed me on what to expect and were very receptive to ensuring my comfort. The seats were very comfortable and the delicious tea and pocky were a bonus. My only criticism is the lack of privacy during my treatment as the chairs are in the same space as the main entrance and reception desk. I could tell the staff made every effort to speak softly but I couldn't help but notice every whisper and shuffle during my treatment. A suggestion would be to maybe offer eye masks or to put up a screen by the reception desk. Otherwise, I enjoyed my treatment and will be back to try others. More...

I went to Barefoot Oasis to treat myself on my birthday and it was well worth the experience. My practitioner was extremely talented, kind, welcome, and clearly very experienced. I've had reflexology massages before in Hong Kong, and while this was comparably relaxing and wonderful, I wasn't left squirming in my seat from pain. My masseuse was responsive to my needs and I left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Thank you very much. I will definitely book another appointment. More...

Looking for a place that did reflexology and not just a foot rub and this place did just that. It was a 60min foot reflexology but honestly could have had the extra 30mins to make it 90.

I used to do weight training and I've recently joined a crossfit gym. To help improve on my recovery, I've decided to go for massage at least twice a month. There was an article in the Daily Hive Vancouver website about how to live on a student budget. And that's when I discovered Barefoot Oasis. The price for a 60 min massage is reasonable, I can reserve online, I can choose my masseuse and it's very close to International Village which I visit frequently . I decided to give it a shot, booked a deep tissue massage with Saya. The place looks simple, clean and peaceful. Saya offered me water or tea and since it was hot that day, I just opted for cold water. Then she asked if there's an area that I'd like more attention, and I told her my neck and shoulders. During the massage, she asked if the pressure is enough for me and I said to add a little bit more. She adjusted the pressure perfectly. I was able to relax and sleep a little bit during my session . Towards the end, she did the karate chop on my neck and shoulder. I don't think that was part of deep tissue massage but then again, what do I know. Whatever the case may be, I enjoyed the chop. After the session, Saya asked again if I'd like tea or water and again I answered water. But this time, it came with a Pocky, just what I needed as I was hungry on the way home. Overall, Saya did an excellent job and I came home feeling good, just what I needed at the end of the week. I'll be back to try the other massages. More...

On my first visit here to Vancouver, after carrying a very heavy backpack very poorly over many kilometers, my back was killing me and I needed relief. Seeing good reviews, I splurged and went for an hour of reflexology and an hour of ashiatsu massage. Glad I did. Karlie and Yuki were both unbelievably attentive, focused, and talented. The music was the right vibe of chill and spa to lull me into a sleep during the reflexology work. Very professionally done, well-appointed, small but just right for a neighborhood oasis. Well worth the visit. More...

We did a two-hour couples massage here (Swedish for both), as we were on vacation from the US and wanted to indulge a bit in the favorable exchange rate. Barefoot Oasis really appealed to us (we discovered them TripAdvisor and then checked Yelp for further reviews) because of their great reviews and amazing value. Our therapists were Saya and Emi, who were both very kind and professional. The experience was wonderfully relaxing from the moment we were greeted as we stepped in the door all the way through the massage and paying. Thank you for a great massage experience! More...

What an amazing turn around for a business in my eyes. After leaving unsatisfied last time, I received a very nice email from the business owner Jonny, which was both professional and as polite and friendly as the staff that I had encountered on my last visit. He explained that he values customer satisfaction very highly and reassured me that my first experience was anomalous, as I had expected. He offered me the opportunity to give Barefoot another chance and I am extremely glad that I did. The experience was extremely relaxing, starting with tea and some snacks and leading into a very clean, private room. The massage was both relaxing and very nice on my muscles. Would definitely recommend the 1-hour Swedish massage to all my friends and I can attest to the fact that my previous experience was one that you should not expect when booking a massage here.

The location is small, which is minor once you're there. There might be a bit of foot traffic while you are getting your foot reflexology, but it doesn't detract from the quality.

Initially walking in I was very pleased with the atmosphere of the spa. I had a reservation for a foot massage with a deep tissue massage to follow. The seating area for the foot massage was great since they offer blankets and semi private dividing curtains. They immediately asked if I would like tea or water and brought it out before we got started. Foot massage was a 5/5 but deep tissue massage was a 3/5. After the foot massage I was taken into one of their side rooms which I anticipated to be more sound proof and warmer. Not sure how the walls were constructed but there seems to be zero insulation since I could hear people walking in and out  the front door and talking outside the room, which was minimal so it wasn't that big of a deal but what bothered me the most was that the room wasn't heated only the bed was so I was absolutely freezing the entire time during my massage. Definitely detracted from the experience and probably won't be returning for a another deep tissue massage. More...

My neck and upper back has been giving me so much trouble these days and so I was in dire need of a deep tissue massage. I've been to many places such as whistlers Scandinavian spa and top RMTs in Vancouver. I would say this place rates in the top with them. They don't have RMT yet but Karla knew her stuff and was one of the best I've ever had. She found all my knots and hard spots that even my physiotherapists had trouble with in the past. She was attentive, talented and very relaxing as well. She gave me my full hour from walking into the massage room till we were done. Really impressive. If you are stressed out or hurting somewhere, I would highly recommend her. I'll be back for their membership deals and I think it would be awesome as gifts to friends. I'm excited for their new Thai massage as well that is coming up soon.The place is a true oasis when you walk in with many Eastern Asia inspired decor, handmade soap that looks delicious, comfortable massage chairs and a soothing ambience that transports you to what a real spa is like. Even their washroom is so large and beautiful- very impressive.I'll be back for another one soon ;) More...

I improvised myself a stop at the barefoot oasis. I walked in hoping for a 60 minute deep tissue massage. They had only 45 minutes available for me immediately. Fair enough considering I just popped in there out of the blue.Vaia was my masseuse and she was fantastic! Super friendly and very professional. She knew her stuff and could explain which muscles where creating my pain and what she would do to help. She asked me how much pressure I could handle to which I replied a lot and she didn't disappoint there either, she is very strong.My only regret is that I won't be able to go back before I leave Vancouver.

I routinely come here now when in Vancouver. 90 min to 2 hour deep tissue massage is the way to go. Suphana is the best masseuse I have ever had.  Been to over 50 different spas in many countries and by far she is the best masseuse I have ever had.  Still quite don't understand how this tiny little woman can do deep tissue pressure like she does.  She finds your tightness so you don't have to tell her.  She focuses on areas that are problematic and does not leave until she gets that area relaxed.  She understand trigger points and how to release them.  Used elbows, knees, fingers and knuckles to crush that tightness away!  I will admit I am biased about her but this spa takes pride in hiring professional people.  Have encountered wonderful people at the counter for check in, other people seem so happy when leaving.  The place is clean and love the nice touch of ginger tea and chocolate sticks at the end of the massage.  Never feel rushed and Suphana always over delivers on qualify and time of massage.  My only hesitation is telling the world about Suphana and now i will not be able to book her!

I have been coming to this place for quite some time (have had 10+ massages here) and generally speaking the service/massages have been great.  Some of the masseuses are weaker than others (probably just based on their individual styles), so you can probably find whatever you are looking for ranging from gentle to real deep tissue massages that leave you sore for days!  The rooms are clean and rather spacious and the tea + Pocky afterwards is a nice touch!!  Not sure if they are still doing them but the package deals in the past were a great deal!

Little bit torn--perhaps 3.5 stars for me. Drawn towards this place because of the high ratings and the fact that it is in Chinatown. Scheduling an appointment is most likely required. I made an appointment for two people the day before for early evening. They have a 24 hour cancellation policy. We arrive and the host is super nice and friendly. We were a bit early so we sat and waited while being served tea and pocky! We kept waiting...20 minutes after our scheduled appointment, we were greeted by 1 masseuse, the other one just went to work and not really talkative. Not a big deal to me. We started with a foot soak then a short 5 minute shoulder massage. I know i shouldn't compare to other places, but i feel like i must for others searching for reflexology. At other places, we also start with a foot soak, but it includes a fairly lengthy massage that includes your shoulders, arm, and head. When you request reflexology at Barefoot Oasis, you get 90% foot massage! This isn't a bad thing, but it wasn't what i was expecting or used to. My masseuse used different techniques than what my friend's masseuse was doing. I usually like heavy/painful massages which my guy provided, but understandably, his fingers/hands got cramped and tired as the massage went on. Fair prices, clean facilities, friendly staff.

I came here once before for just foot reflexology and was rather pleased. The place is SUPER clean and quiet and zen. I'm a huge fan of cleanliness and everything is spotless. You can't even hear any outside noise once you get inside which is great! They have huge comfy recliners to do your foot massages and VERY spacious and CLEAN treatment rooms for massages. I booked my 2nd visit with Vaia and she was amazing. I went for deep tissue and right from the start, her pressure was perfect. I didn't have to ask her to be lighter or firmer (which I normally have to with past massages). She hit all the areas that I had troubles with with just the right amount of pressure, no pain like I was worried about, but still relaxing at the same time. They offer tea or water and snacks while you get your foot massage. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. One little thing, not a huge deal, but when it gets busy there, there's nowhere to sit while you're either waiting or after you finish your massage. I'd definitely go back for another treatment when I have the time. Booking online is super easy too!! LOVE that feature. More...

5 star service for sure. Akiko Shimane was so amazing. Very professional and diligent. She communicated with me and asked about my needs and make sure it was relaxing and enjoyable. The spa itself is very modern and new. So clean and well equipped. I was here visiting vancouver but I recommend it for anyone looking to relax on vacation. We even got pocky and tea/water after we finished our couple massage. Thanks so much! ***** stars More...

As per my last two reviews, I just wanted to complete a third to confirm that Barefoot Oasis has my heart and I am a loyal fan.  One word: Karlie.  She is by far the best masseuse I've ever had and she is so talented and skilled.  Ever since my initial visit in February, I have been visiting once a month (sometimes twice if I'm lucky!) because Karlie is THAT good.   Also, I wanted to give a shoutout to Hannah at reception.  She's always so friendly and professional, her positive attitude adds to the experience.

I rarely write reviews on here, but this time I simply have to! I had a foot reflexology with Vaia and it was heaven on earth! The place is off a busy road and initially I felt a bit iffy when i was placed in the main room and not a private one for my foot massage. But Vaia was so kind, warm and knowledgeable that I instantly felt at ease. You are provided with comfy loose pants, so no reason to worry about what to wear. The massage starts with a warm foot bath during which you receive a short shoulder massage. Vaia had just the right amount of pressure when she started with the reflexology and I pretty soon dozed off, which surprised me given that we were in a rather public setting. I felt so relaxed and at ease after that massage! If you get the chance, be sure to book with Vaia - I don't know any of the other therapists at that location, but she was absolutely fantastic!

I've had reflexology done at some of the best spas in the world. Today, at this unassuming oasis nestled near Chinatown, I met a reflexology goddess named Suphana. She was hands down the best reflexologist I've ever had. My son also really liked Carlie--this was his first one, but said she was good. We followed 45 minute sessions with hour massages, both amazing. My only regret--we didn't do 60 min reflexology. Don't miss this place! More...

Amazing from start to finish! First off I love how quick and easy it was to book in for our appointments. I even emailed the night before to see if we could extend our reflexology to 90 minutes and got an email back right away- awesome customer service! It was 90 minutes of bliss! My husband and I felt so relaxed after and I was shocked to see how much it helped with my pregnancy aches! Extremely glad we took the advice from other Yelp reviews and came here! We will be back again and again! More...

My wife got me a 90 minute foot reflexology session for my birthday and I will admit, I had high expectations as their reviews are amazing.  Well if you have not been here or tried this treatment, DO IT!   This was nothing short of amazing, the atmosphere is on point and the gals were super friendly.  I will definitely be back again and will let friends and family know about this little gem.  Keep up the great work!

We (a group of 6) booked a foot massage and 1 deep tissue recently.  From the initial booking to treatment this place was great!  We were a little late and were still given the full treatment.  We were offered special foot massage pants the group found very comfortable, tea and was never made to feel rushed.  I have been to several foot massage spots from the very traditional Chinese kind to the quieter Western spots.  The space was calming, quiet & clean.  Service was friendly and pressure was wonderful.  If I am in the area I will definitely be back!

Barefoot Oasis is clean, friendly and completely professional.  I'm an athlete with a stressful job so I often have hard to break up knots in my shoulders. Daniel was patient but persistent enough with the perfect amount of pressure to handle of my problem areas.  This was one of the best massages I've ever had.  I will definitely being coming back the next time I'm in town....and may even go back tomorrow before I leave.  I highly recommend this place!

I moved into the area 2 years ago and was looking for a place I could walk or take the train to, rather than driving across Vancouver to my old haunts. I tried this place a few months ago and was SO pleased that I did! I have had several great 60 min foot reflexology sessions with a few people including Suphana, Sandy, and Vaia. I love deep pressure and they all delivered great and relaxing massages.The spa itself is beautifully appointed and very clean. I am a stickler on cleanliness and I feel completely comfortable here. The music is great - unobtrusive and pleasant.Highly recommend Barefoot Oasis for either visitors or Vancouverites - it's my new go to place. More...

I popped in for an hour long reflexology session and I can never go back to not having reflexology now. The ambience was lovely, Suphaena (so?) gave both a wicked neck and shoulder massage to start and was excellent to my dancer feet. Prices were great, too. I will definitely be going back for more and can't wait to do a whole body massage, too! More...

I took my fiancé here for his birthday, but let's be honest, it was truly a gift for myself too. We had side-by-side 45 minute foot reflexology (which also included a light head, shoulder and back massage, followed by an hour long deep tissue massage. I've had a foot reflexology a couple of months before with Suphana and loved it so much that I had to bring Jeff here. I made our appointment to be paired up with Suphana and for Carlie for my fiancé. It was such a wonderful experience for us and we merely melted when it was all over. Jeff and I were so thrilled and impressed with our experience. Our deep tissue massage was truly something else. Suphana had worked on my knots and upper back as I have a lot of stress building up in there. For Jeff, Vaia had worked on his upper back and shoulder/neck area and he felt like a new man in the very end.Both experiences were amazing for us and we definitely have plans to be back in a month, the week before our wedding. Thanks so much. More...

I live close by and have been meaning to  a try this place out for a while. Booked a 60 minute deep tissue massage.  It was exactly what I needed. Hurt a little, but in a good way. If you dont like the pain, get a Swedish massage. The receptionist was super friendly and accommodating of a last minute booking. The space was clean, relaxing and you can't hear the hustle and bustle from outside, even on a busy weekend afternoon.  I hope they get an RMT so I can use my insurance. Looking forward to my next appointment. More...

I booked a deep tissue massage with Karlie after all the Yelp reviews. Damn was she worth it. $70 for 60 mins. She was helpful in getting me to understand the process of the deep tissue massage (first time I'd ever had one) as well as really caring for my experience the whole way through. She was super thoughtful and never made me feel rushed. She was super nice about making sure I took my time with everything in a comfortable way. The after\care of sitting in the lounge with some tea was really nice after that intense experience. I never felt pushed or rushed from cash at the front to paying after. More...

Went in for a 45 min foot reflexology and it was only $40 dollars. They started with a back and neck massage while my feet were in salted hot water which was very nice, and then gave me the foot and leg massage. It was wonderful. They really took their time. Nice people. More...

I've noticed this place the past few times I was in the area and was happy that my sister chose this one to go to for her birthday massage. I chose to have the 60-minute foot massage while my sister had the 30 minute foot and 45 minute chair. The massage itself was fantastic, my masseuse knew what she was doing and quickly found the knots I had in my shoulders after just finished playing a volleyball tournament over the weekend just days before. Then the actual foot massage was great, or as I like to call it - "hurt so good" - I think I may have fallen asleep at one point as well. The staff were super friendly and the ambiance of the place was so relaxing and peaceful. I will definitely be back for more magic. More...

Great employees seem to really enjoy what they do.  Looking for an excuse to go back now asap! More...

On new year's eve we dropped by without appointments, and the receptionist kindly fit two of us in for 30 minute reflexology massages. The decor is evocative of a scholar garden, and it is impeccably clean without feeling sterile. I was impressed with each staff member, as they proactively made us feel relaxed by offering tea and snacks, even if they were not directly involved with our treatments. The reflexology massage itself encompassed a foot soak, an upper back massage, and the foot reflexology itself. It made for a much-needed half-hour of relaxation prior to driving in the heavy snow of the day! More...

Found this place from reviews on yelp. Reasonable prices, very friendly & highly skilled staff, relaxing & clean atmosphere. I had the best massage I've ever had with Karlie Perez. She knew exactly where to massage and use the most pressure on. I love very deep massages and always so tense on my neck & shoulder area, she spent extra time up there because she could feel that. I ended up going to her twice in two weeks because I was blown away by my first experience with her. I never knew a perfect massage til I went to Karlie! I will definitely be coming back again in another two weeks. Money well spent on this place!  Thanks Barefoot Oasis staff & Karlie for always providing me with exceptional client service and keeping me happy & de-stressed! More...

Had a one hour massage from JP and man, that guy knows his stuff. He helped me so much - my shoulders and lower back were so tight but he was able to get the knots out and really loosen up the muscles and joints. He is a super nice guy, has strong hands, and doesn't give up on stubborn muscles. Thank you JP. The place is beautiful, and the people are very friendly.  I liked it so much I booked for 2 hours next week. -------------------------------------------------Another appointment last Friday to work on the tendinitis in my arm. Deep tissue massage hurts like hell, but it's so effective. JP knows his anatomy inside out, and uses that knowledge to achieve the most effective results -- less stiffness and pain than I've had for a year. As far as I'm concerned, he's the miracle worker.

When I made an appointment for a deep tissue massage with JP a few weeks ago, I happily found someone who would be able to help in increasing my shoulder's limited range of motion.  I told him I had planned on shoulder surgery due to the osteoarthritis.  He said I wouldn't need to if I invested the time to let him work on it; so I have.  JP employs an intensely deep and focused technique.  As he worked on the problem area, I relaxed as best as I could and breathed through the discomfort of it all.   After two incredibly intense sessions (so far), I am elated to report considerable improvement.  I feel confident that after several more sessions, this problem shoulder will be back to its healthy state, and alleviate any need for shoulder surgery.  JP is an intuitive healer.  I highly and strongly recommend him.

I have walked past this place before and did not pay attention to it. A friend mentioned this place and said it looked nice, and so I booked myself a Swedish massage. I am glad I did. Despite being near Chinatown, it is not a dodgy or seedy place. In fact, it is like what the name said - an oasis - in the midst of a not that busy cul de sac. I love the decor which is modern, clean and very zen. The one and only bathroom is very spacious and the faucet is reminiscence of a mini waterfall. I like how the experience is carried through to the treatment and to the end. The recliner lounger/chairs for the foot massage are comfortable.The room for the massage is also decent size, you will not feel hemmed in and I like the decor on the ceiling too. Aikiko was my therapist and she was fantastic. She did a mix of shiatsu and swedish massage on me as I did have some knots on my upper back. It was still a relaxing massage overall and I will definitely be back to try the foot massage and for more swedish massage. Having pocky and green tea after the massage is a nice touch. I am not sure if they also offer ginger or lemongrass tea but it will be awesome if they do. More...

I actually wasn't looking to get a massage since these places tend to be pricey but I passed by the store a few times walking home from Stadium Skytrain station and finally decided to give it a try.  The store has a very natural feel to it with the wooden decor and dry moss wall.  The atmosphere of the store was also very calming with the dim lights and soft music that was playing in the background.  Not sure if I fell asleep during my 90 minute session or time just flew by but my body could definitely use another session.  Staff was friendly and seemed genuine about providing quality service.  They do close at 8:00 pm though so if you're working 9:00 - 5:00, might want to head over there right after work.

This wonderful little spa really is an oasis in the busy downtown area. It is conveniently located near a sky train as well! I loved the vibe when I walked into this spa and it smelled amazing, which immediate relaxed me. The waiting room is decorated in a way that relaxes the mind somehow. The staff immediate danger offered me water and a snack and allowed me to sit and relax for a few minutes to transition from my busy day into the mindset of having a massage. The staff here is well trained and although I had a deep tissue massage, I would love to try shiatsu or reflexology, as it seems this is a focus of the practitioners at this spa. I enjoyed the personal mix of essential oils they formulated for my massage based on my aromatherapy preferences. I also enjoyed the warm towel on my back at the end of the massage. I have very high standards and I was pleased with my experience at this spa. I would definitely return for one of the above mentioned services. More...

I was a little skeptical of the location since Barefoot Oasis was located in the little roundabout area across from TNT and behind Stadium Skytrain.  It didn't sound horrible, but just not extremely relaxing to me.  However, when I walked in, what I saw what a beautiful little spa for foot and body massages.This place is pretty much how I'd like to design a spa, -touches of green with brown, gray and white.  It felt clean, comfortable and yet still modern.  I was greeted warmly by staff and offered tea or water while I filled out my registration form.I decided to go with a body massage and originally chose the Japanase shiatsu since I wanted to try something new.  Karlie ended up explaining to me what the different techniques meant and I realized I wanted something more relaxing instead.  I went back to a Swedish massage, which is what I usually get anyway when I visit spas.  She was wonderful and my back thanks her too.  I fell asleep twice and that's always a great sign.After my visit, I received an email summary of my appointment and a chance to complete a survey of my experience.  I like that idea.  Another bonus is that when you book your appointment, Barefoot Oasis emails you a reminder the day of.  I prefer emails over phone calls so that worked out well.  The only thing I would change is to email 1 day prior to the appointment rather than 2 hours.

As a part of a relaxing Sunday "date day" (because we fall asleep before date night begins), we  ended up celebrating by heading over to Barefoot Oasis for a massages. It located right down the stairs from the Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain station, and there's ample parking on the street or in the International Village mall parking lot. Hour-long services range from $50-70, I went with an hour long shiatsu massage. I've never had a shiatsu massage, so I decided to try that. My belle decided to get a deep tissue massage. The appointment was at noon and we arrived to a zen-full space with dark natural wood and neutral greys and blacks. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop, and I think we were the only clients. We were greeted with tea and/or water, along with some Pocky sticks, because why not? We're across the street from a T&T grocery store! Masa was my shiatsu massage therapist, and Ringo was my partner's deep tissue massage therapist. Both were very kind, with Masa's demeanour matching the quietness and zen of the venue's atmosphere. The room was quiet, clean, and Masa never touched my skin, using a towel for no direct contact. I didn't know what to expect from a shiatsu massage, but it seemed like it was a hour long period of pushing pressure points along my neck, back, ribs, kidneys, and legs. Man, did it hurt, but in a good way. It seemed like each time the pain came around, it dissipated a moment later. I found it especially hurt around my kidneys and in-between my ribs. The hour did fly by! I recommend to do some researchingMy partner absolutely LOVED Ringo's deep tissue massage. She paid attention to her problem areas, and made the hour a pleasure. That's all that I heard anyway!We ended up being greeted with more tea and water  as we sat and enjoyed the serenity of Barefoot Oasis in post-massage bliss. While I'm no expert on massages, I really enjoyed our experience at Barefoot Oasis and would recommend to check it out! I'd love to come back for a reflexology appointment next time.Thank you to Johnny X. and the whole staff for a great experience! More...

After a long day of hovering over a keyboard and staring at a screen I was very exited  to visit Barefoot Oasis Spa.  I signed up for a one hour deep tissue massage  with a woman named Karly. Karly was the best masseuse, attentive, friendly and  super accommodating. I appreciated her thoughtfulness and making me feel comfortable and relaxed.This is a professional spa and there is a lot of attention to detail which I appreciate. As for price it's on point for the service and ambiance. I throughly enjoyed the decor, service and location. I will definitely be back for a body and foot massage. More...

After a long day of work, the best thing to do is treat yourself to a nice well deserved massage to loosen up all those tight knots. Barefoot Oasis is indeed a nice oasis away from the busy lifestyle we all live and breathe. The spa is located right by the Stadium Chinatown station and across from T&T, which couldn't be any more convenient. Upon entering the spa, the music and décor immediately makes you feel relaxed. And the receptionist immediately greets you with warm water.I got a 1 hour deep tissue massage from Ringo from Fukuoka. You were given a choice between dry and oil. After I picked oil, I was given the option of rosemary and lavender. If I let her continue talking I might have been given more options, but I pretty much picked lavender as soon as she mentioned it. Nothing beats lavender oil in my opinion. Ringo was friendly and very receptive to all the feedback I have her during our massage session and adjusted her strength accordingly. She wasn't overly talkative or overly quiet. Which is a work of art in itself. And after my massage, I felt  most of my knots loosen up. I probably need a 2 hour massage to actually rid myself of all those knots I've accumulated from work though.Something I really appreciated was the fact that she tried to make my visit as comfortable as possible. I have this tendency to get nasal congestion and nasal drip during my body massages. For the first time ever, I was actually offered tissue and a garbage can that was placed conveniently next to me. I know this might seem minor, but it's honestly the minor things that are most memorable. And after the massage I was offered a packet of chocolate pocky and prince of peace tea. A nice finish to the end of a relaxing experience. All in all, a nice Japanesque experience, where every minor detail was accounted for.I wouldn't mind coming again even though it's a bit far from home.Note: They're still in the midst of looking for an RMT right now for those of you that have work coverage.For those of you that care, quite a few pokestops nearby :) More...

I'm so glad this spa is close to home.  Receptionist is friendly and therapists are highly skilled.  Other than mentioning I needed the strongest person they've got on a Monday, and informing the male therapist that he could go as strong as he can handle, I didn't have to persist for anything firmer.  The pressure was perfect for me.  It was also nice to see that he handled me differently from my friend's therapist.  No cookie cutter routine here.  Excellent pricing, as well.  I'll return for sure.

I was very impressed with this spa, definitely beyond my expectation! I opted for an hour deep tissue massage and my massage therapist, Ringo, is friendly, professional and has magic hands! I was cordially greeted with a smile and an offer of water by the receptionist when I entered. The massage room was extremely clean and very relaxing. In fact, the whole place is immaculately clean. Ringo first asked me whether I wanted a dry or an oil massage, I chose oil. The oil smelled good and immediately made me so relaxed. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole massage and asked whether the pressure was right when she started on a new area. My body was wiped clean with warm towel right after the massage. They offered tea and pocky right after the massage. Fyi, this place is right across T&T at Chinatown Skytrain and as an aside, it has access to the Pokestop too. In fact, I was late to my appointment since I wanted to capture a rare Pokemon there :PAn A+ experience, best wishes for the Barefoot team. More...

What a wonderful experience at Barefoot Oasis! I consider myself a bit of "Massage Snob" because I get one every two weeks! I've been to lots of places for massages, from luxury Willowstream spa in the Fairmont to casual laid back places such as Big Feet. Ive experience good and bad massages. I didn't know what to expect going today into Barefoot oasis. Finding parking was effortless but I noticed that Barefoot was only seconds away from the Stadium sky train. I was promptly greeted by the receptionist. She asked me if I wanted anything to drink and guided me to a recliner to fill consent forms. Looking around, you can see that the facilities was very clean and well put together. They played soothing spa music in the background. My masseuse came out after a couple minutes, she said her name was Karlie. She promptly guided me into a massage room. The room looked super clean, (definitely an upgrade from Big Feet). Karlie asked me what type of massages do I prefer and if I had any area that I wanted her to focus on. Before starting the massage, she made me feel really comfortable and ensured everything was fine with me. The massage was AMAZINGGGG!!! Like I said before, I know my sh*t when it comes to massages. Karlie was great, she had excellent technique and pressure. Typically, I never fall asleep during massages but this massage was not only relaxing, it really helped energize my whole body. After the massage, she got warm towels to clear off the oil, which I personally thought complimented the service.After the massage, the sweet receptionist hands you a water and pocky! I thought the pocky was a nice touch to this service. I will definitely be back soon! More...

Step into a place of relaxation and quiet from the twilight zone known as Tinseltown.As the norm is to go for a back massage, I opted to have a foot massage this time. For any virgins, try it. If done right, you will feel like you are walking on a cotton ball floor after. Your feet are more important than you think.While my feet were soaking, Karlie started with a shoulder/neck massage. Nice and deep. Pain is good if you want any true benefit. Balance of hour was foot work. Super chill and she really worked the pressure points.Bonus points for the complimentary tea and Pocky! Who doesn't love Pocky.The ambiance has some cool elements like the Japanese shrine type entrance to the massage room area as well as funky lights. Calming music was playing and set the mood. The only suggestion for the foot massage chairs is to maybe section it off from the front desk for a little more privacy.Location is very close to the Skytrain so you can hop off twisted, and hop back on buttery smooth.Best of luck to the team at Barefoot.

I just finished my massage at Barefoot Oasis and it was amazing (I am actually still so zenned out) The location was perfect as I live only a few blocks away. The spa is near stadium skytrain station and out in the open so it's easily accessible and great for transit. When I walked in the gent at the  reception desk was really nice offering me tea or water. Once I sat down he even brought me cookies!!! (and I love cookies) I met with Karlie who was the one giving my massage and she was very sweet and had a warm energy to her which made me instantly comfortable. I opted for a deep tissue massage as I work way to much and workout a lot too (so I have tons of built up tension). The massage itself was great, Karlie instantly could tell which areas I needed the most work on and she helped to release a ton of built up tension. The warming cloths at the end was the perfect finish to the massage. I think the only concern I have is how I'm gonna manage to be productive the rest of the day when I feel so relaxed now. More...

Karlie worked me goooooooood. I came here for a 60 min Swedish massage and was really impressed by the whole experience (which left me in a puddle of bliss at the end). The facility is IMMACULATE, like I mean, seriously beautiful, modern and clean. Reception greeted me warmly and offered a cup of tea while I filled out my registration form. Shortly after, Karlie introduced herself and walked me into the massage room. We did a quick rundown of what I was looking for (relaxation with some work on my neck and shoulders) and I also got to pick the scented oil to be used. This was one of the most therapeutic and relaxing (albeit, sometimes incredibly painful) massages I've had. Karlie was incredibly professional and really worked on my problem areas, applying deep pressure (by my request) while also checking in at appropriate times to make sure that the pressure was right. I'm no massage therapist, but I know what I personally like. And I was really, really happy with her technique since it combined long strokes for relaxation and deep tissue therapy (I'm not a fan of when therapists press and hold onto one spot for a long period of time.)I can definitely feel the effects of the massage today, sore but in a good way. After the massage, I was treated to another cup of tea and a pack of Pocky - I love these small touches of customer service. The location is convenient for me (I live across the street), so I may have just found my new spa! More...

My wife and I have been here a few times now. Foot massages, chair massages and deep tissue full body massages. The place is beautifully designed. It shows the owners put a lot of thought into the design. Currently there are several offers in place, since they just opened. It is conveniently located across from T&T supermarket . We bought a 10 pass. We will be coming quite a few times. Looking forward to being more relaxed over the next few months. More...

This is new place that they just open few weeks ago I heard good thinks from my coworkers so I had to try. Location was very convenient for me to take a train and when I get there every employees were greeting me with smile! Very nice! Receptionist asked me what I was here for today so I told him I want body massage. He told me people who works there they came from all different country and they have different type of massages.. Like Thai massage, deep tissue massage, RMT? Which is good for trouble spot massage. I went with RMT style. I had low back problem.. The lady that gave me massage was very gentle but worked on my trouble spot very well after the massage I was very relaxed and sleepy !! This place is very clean and price was very reasonable.. Oh! After my massage they gave me warm a cop of tea and cookies that was nice! I will be back again maybe I will try foot massage next time! More...

Fantastic environment, location and skilled masseuse! It was my second time at this new establishment and I was equally satisfied as the first. I often drop by this area to shop at T&T and go to the movies so I'll definitely become a regular client here. The music and the atmosphere are very relaxing and soothing. First time I had BK and the second time I had Nora. My friend had Yata and she was really impressed. More...

This place is newly open, but it doesn't feel that way when I went for my massage! The staffs were very welcoming, professional and accommodating!I was so tired after work. On my way home I noticed them having a soft opening promotion and just popped in for a 60 mins session of Swedish massage. The music was so soft and the person doing my massage was so gentle, the whole place smells like calm and quiet autumn days. I felt so relaxed and fell asleep after few minutes! My body didn't want to leave after the session, the place was sooo calm and warm, definitely will return to pamper my stressed body and mind. More...

Great location! I love it how convenient from my work to this spa. One stop skytrian and about 8mins walk. Very relaxing  atmosphere and setting, not like some places that so loud and so much talking when I am trying to relax. I also love the diffusers the spa use. It's my favorite Jo Malone. Great taste! I'd love to recommend to my friends and coworkers. Ask for BK, Karlie for body, Norah for foot when you visit. Awesome staffs, so kind. More...
