I’ve been going to this location for sometime now and I’m very happy with the friendliness of the staff the thoroughness of the work in the atmosphere
Literally just left from my massage less than an hour ago and had to write this review! After doing hours of research I found Westside Massage and called, Ursula who was able to get me an appointment with John. This was by far the BEST massage I've ever had in my 31 years on earth. The vibe of being greeted by John, the room, the HANDS of John, the conversation, and the ending with talking and meeting Ursula. If you're looking for the place then stop because this is it! Seriously the vibe and the techniques that John used are out of this world! Dont just take my word for it... Experience it! Local business who is giving back as well. Thank you so much guys! More...
Realy loved this spot. The peeps who work there are great and very accomodating.
They provide an amazing and welcoming environment. Their hands on couples massage is a great date idea, and their massage therapists are friendly and do a fantastic job. Plus, who doesn't want to get a massage in an old bank vault? You'll feel like a mob boss! More...
I love this place! They do great work with making my back feel better. All the therapists are amazing, Ive had a few different ones, and are very attentive. Best place in town.Camden
I was having trouble with a sore shoulder so the massage therapist did a medical massage on my pressure points. I felt much better by the time I left and had better range of motion. Great calming atmosphere too. Highly recommend. More...
Good atmosphere, soothing relaxing, staff very pleasant, you leave wanting to come back
I found Westside Massage through Groupon. Rena did a really nice job on the massage, and the staff is very kind. Thank you for a great experience!
Very skilled at getting out the knots, courteous.
Due to a recent move back to GR from ATL, and a pilates class, my shoulders and neck were riddled with pain and knots. John took the time to understand what I needed and focused on working these areas. The room, table and overall environment is inviting and VERY comfortable. Met Ursula, the owner, a kind spirit. I felt instantly better and had a tough time moving out of the nest of warmth after the massage. A lovely experience. Gratitude. More...
Did a couples massage with Rena. She was amazing; very friendly, respectful, and knowledgeable enough to both give and teach a massage at the same time. We loved our experience at Westside Massage! More...
The most theraputic massage I've ever received! My masseuse knew exactly what to do to help align my hips, which felt incredible. Highly recommend!
One of the best deep tissue massages that I have ever received. Soothing and refreshing. Walked in with terrible back and hip pain and walked out feeling amazing. Would highly recommend.
Very quaint place, wonderful therapist! Was very attentive. Definitely would go back again!
I visited West Side Massage with my daughter for her birthday and she got a massage with AmandaNot only is the place very pleasant and relaxing but all the staff is totally friendly and welcoming.The massage was 1h and Amanda was super professional and patient. She showed how to perform a massage which was really interesting :)Totally recommend West Side Massage and we will for sure come back! More...
Had such a great experience for my first professional massage! Such a calm and inviting atmosphere. Would highly recommend John - explained everything thoroughly and now my shoulders/back are feeling way less tension!!
I had the chance to experience my first massage here done by Danielle. And it was AMAZING. Danielle was very attentive and made sure she knew what was bothering me so she could spend more time in those areas. I feel much better, almost lighter. The space itself was very clean and had a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. Such a welcoming environment! And at the end, Danielle showed me several stretches that I could do at home. It's very clear that she enjoys what she does and gives 100 percent with her customers. I cannot wait to come back for another massage! More...
I have been to a couple of different massage places around GR and I have to say this was the best! The staff was incredible and very personable. They made you feel at home and made sure you were happy. Love supporting a locally owned business rather than a chain. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of getting a massage in the Grand Rapids area. More...
I went to Westside Massage for a prenatal massage. I've long suffered from sciatic nerve pain, and it's only intensified in pregnancy. Danielle was my massage therapist and she was INCREDIBLE. She was waiting at the desk, welcomed me, and showed me where the massage would be taking place. She was kind and thorough and made sure to take time to ask me what was really bothering me physically and stopped periodically to make sure I was comfortable. I felt welcome and very well taken care of. It was clean and relaxing inside, all the staff were very warm and welcoming, and the whole experience felt very personal and calming. I will definitely be going back! The owner is easy to get in touch with, extremely knowledgeable, and deeply invested in our community and its wellness. I highly, highly recommend!! More...
First time ever getting a massage and I was a little leary on the whole experience. But I was blown away from the moment we walked in the door. We were greeted by John and Danielle and immediately all my worries went away. Danielle was amazing and focused on my hips where I have the most pain. She even taught me some stretches to continue to ease the pain. From the moment we walked in the door to the time we left, we were comfortable and felt like family. I will be back and will be recommending them to everyone I know! More...
John was the man! My back feels great! I WILL be back again.
Always great service
Did a hands-on couple massage with John and it was great! We learned so many awesome techniques to bring home! John was super informative, friendly, funny, and kind! Will be back for more!
Very relaxing environment
The piece & tranquility of the building is amazing the owner Ursula is a priceless gem highly recommend this establishment
Always great service.
Have been here twice already. I've seen two different massage therapists (Danielle and Amanda I believe). Loved them both! Ursula the owner is great, and after having a mix up with Groupon she was very helpful and able to accommodate me. Would recommend!! More...
Westside massage is fantastic!!! I'm a cheap person and I went 2 times in 2 weeks - worth every penny!! Ursula runs an incredible business, John has *fantastic* hands, and they both provide such great energy to be around. I cant rate them highly enough, or this place of business.My husband and I did the couples massage and it really was great! We each had our own time receiving a massage and had time to learn how to give one, very personalized. The second one I had was a deep tissue massage and I feel like a brand new person afterwards!If you have any doubts about this place, they're alleviated as soon as you walk in.I'll definitely be back! More...
Friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable staff. Worth every penny and buying a package is more economical without a lot or rules or red tape. The rooms are very nice, clean and the entire vibe says “relax” plus they reach out to the community too. Wonderful!! More...
A great atmosphere- my girlfriend loved it and we'll be back again
Great prenatal massage!
One of the best massages I have had! John was great, very respectful and very knowledgeable! He worked on the areas that needed the most help and was able to offer suggestions for stretching and other ways to decrease the tightness. I definitely will be coming again! The room was dark and calm, the hot stones were great. There was soft music playing and was offered options for next time to make my muscles less tight. This was my first massage by a male masseuse and I did not feel uncomfortable at all, it was one of the best deep tissue massages I have had! I highly recommend trying this place out More...
5/5! My boyfriend and I went for a unique and personal couples massage and we enjoyed every bit of it! Our massage therapist, Josh, was excellent, knowledgeable, and very friendly. We will definitely be coming back!
I've had a few (6 different massage therapists) professional massages. I found Westside on Groupon- where I was looking for a deal on a good massage. From the start, Westside stood apart- I liked that I could "meet" all the staff on their website by seeing their pics and reading their profile. They are also good about responding to reviews and they had some of the best reviews. So I chose them even though they weren't the cheapest deal I found- and I'm so glad I did! All my massages have been good, but I've been looking for great. And John at Westside Massage was the best of all of them! I felt comfortable with him as soon as we met and his pressure was perfect... but he was still good about making sure his pressure was good with me. I also loved his use of a warm towel- it was lovely! I also liked the ambiance at Westside. It's a cute little hole in the wall spot that has a perfect balance between relaxing and professional. I've already gone back for a second massage :) The only thing that keeps me from going here as often as I'd like is price. The normal prices of their massages are about $70+tip -that's a bit high for me. But it is worth every penny :) All in all tho, their Groupon was a great deal and my best massage ever! More...
While I have had massage at Westside since their opening, I wanted to share about a new therapist in the studio. I'm awaiting a total hip replacement to be done in January. Without my regular hip joint injections, my pain has escalated to the point of miserable. I have recently seen Danielle who is new to Westside. Through massage and distraction maneuvers, she has been able to gain enough space in the joint to keep my pain under control for up to two weeks. So now there's another very talented medical massage therapist in house. Give a call and explain your situation. From relaxtion and stress reduction to helping be your best physical self, they have it covered! More...
There is not enough space or adequate words to say how much we enjoyed our experience at Westside Massage. Ursula, John and Amanda were wonderful from first contact via email to last contact to see how we were doing after the fact. They are knowledgeable, smart, kind, giving and generous souls. We felt an immediate connection and hope to be able to go back again (we live two hours away). Go see them today, you won't regret it. More...
This place is legit! My girlfriend and I got massages at the same time. Amanda and John were our massage therapists, and they did a wonderful job. Highly reccomend them and this facility! More...
I've tried about 5 other businesses in GR for massages, and this place is at the top of my list! The owner was very welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxing right from the get-go, and my massage therapist (Pam) had me practically asleep within 15 minutes. I will be back!
I had an irritated muscle in my back that was affecting my sciatic nerve and hamstrings to the point where it hurt to do pretty much anything. My regular therapist was on vacation for 2+ weeks but John S was about to get me in on short notice on Labor Day no less. It's still a little tender but feels so much better. Plus we talked through some of my symptoms and were able to diagnose the problems I've been having. More...
I couldn’t be more impressed with westside massage after my first visit! They were very accommodating to specific needs I had for a massage therapist and made a reschedule happen no problem. Ursula, the owner, is very friendly and welcoming and the building itself is clean and inviting. Amanda was so friendly and did an amazing job and I would definitely recommend her! Also, if you work at Spectrum Health you can get 20% off. Will definitely be returning! :) More...
My back felt beyond repair until i met john. They got me in immediately and john is a freakin wizard. After one session i felt so much better. Had my second session today which was heavenly and booked my 3rd appointment about 2 mins into my session. HIGHLY RECOMMEND More...
Very cute, quiet, and relaxing space in an updated building on the Westside. I had John for my visit and he did a wonderful job, really focused on my problem areas and went above and beyond my expectations. Great price for an incredible massage, definitely recommend going here - I already scheduled my next appointment! More...
I highly suggest this place if you want a really good massage! More specifically John! He is great at relieving tight muscles and the everyday aches! I already made another if that tells you something! More...
I feel incredibly relaxed after my experience. The massause, John, was incredibly informative and his hands are gifted. The CBD oil was amazing. You have to check this place out!
Excellent experience. I appreciated the soothing atmosphere and professional expertise. I was so lucky to meet Ursula and find out about Westside Massage. My session was with John and he did such good work, easing sore muscles and providing wonderful overall relaxation. I scheduled another session and anticipate being a regular customer. John also demonstrated a quality that I find wonderful in discovering a new business. The commitment of people working together, loving what they do and providing a valuable service is precious. This is a gem of a business. More...
I had a reiki session that was very relaxing and soothing. They made the atmosphere calming by having nice smells and music when you enter. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful place filled with wonderful people. Everyone there was so warm and welcoming. The massage I received was absolutely incredible. I will definitely be going again :) More...
I had a great experience with fantastic results.
I had a phenomenal experience. Clean atmosphere good smelling, soothing feeling. I suffer from chronic migraines, I had John as a masseuse he did excellent, very friendly personable great bedside manner, professional. I will definitely be going again.
Amazing place! I loved my massage! My husband and I had massages from John and Ursula, and they both did excellent! I would come back again for sure.
I've been to lots of massage places, and this is by far the best one I've been to in GR. Everyone is nice and accommodating I recommend this to everyone if you're in pain and need to relax.
Great massage, right price, professional and clean. Will be back for sure!
Jason was amazing!! I LOVE it there!!! You guys are seriously great. John is super sweet and awesome; I VERY much enjoyed my first time! Thank you so much!
John was amazing he is an empath and can read auras and was spot on... He is truly blessed with a gift of healing. I'm not from this side of the state but will definitely go back next time I'm in town !!! Beautiful atmosphere as well!
I love this place. Very helpful with my sore ankles. They ask lots of questions and are very knowledgeable about the human body. I recommend Westside Message to everyone. More...
Absolutely loved my massage the other day! Such a relaxing and healing environment. Can’t wait to come back :)
Both Ursula and John were amazing! Ursula was so friendly and made time to take my appointment with John the day of, John is an amazing masseuse, very professional and well trained. I loved my experience as a first time customer and already booked my next appointment:) Definitely go here! More...
I came into the shop in extreme pain and left with pain free movement of my neck. John is a gifted therapist
My massage here was amazing! I recently graduated and was working two jobs so I had so much stress built up. I also work somewhere where I am on my feet for ten hours a day. The deep massage made me feel lighter than air and 5 years younger I swear! They knew me by name when I walked in and made it feel very personal and they took such good care of me from start to finish. I will definitely be going back soon! Ursula was so friendly and personable. And Jamie did a wonderful job on my massage. I was able to get in so quickly and scheduling my massage was simple as well. I HIGHLY recommend this place! More...
Westside Massage is fantastic! I received a great massage from Pam, and I feel so much better! I love the atmosphere, and everyone I met was really nice and friendly! I already scheduled my next appointment and highly recommend!! More...
I was in a car accident 2 days prior to my massage today and was experiencing some whiplash and sore muscles. Thankfully they were able to get me in for a deep tissue massage short notice. I recieved an email response from Ursula within a few minutes and we were able to set up an appointment. The massage with Jamie was amazing, and I left feeling a huge difference in the tension in my neck and shoulders. I went from being in pain and kind of grumpy to feeling relaxed and giddy! I highly recommend their services. More...
I just had a wonderful prenatal massage. Pam was excellent and focused in on my trouble spots. Ursula is very welcoming and made you feel at home. The faculty is clean and serene. I will definitely be going back for another. Thank you! More...
I had my first ever massage at Westside Massage and it was honestly life changing for me. John helped create a comfortable, safe space for me and I greatly appreciate it. The massage was a definite ten out of ten. I went in feeling tense, and a little anxious but I left feeling calm, and well rested. The business is clean, and provides a relaxing experience. I was one of those people who wanted to get a massage but never did because I felt I didn't really "need" one. However, after having one I would definitely say that I would get another because I already booked my next appointment. John was a wonderful massage therapist, and such a great person. He is a great conversationalist too, which helped me feel relaxed as well. If you are in need, or on the fence about getting a massage, then you should give Westside Massage a chance. I look forward to my next appointment with John. More...
Best massage I have ever had! Seriously, on every level. First of all, Ursala is an amazing owner and person. She runs a very professional and safe massage business. Second, the atmosphere, from the color of the walls to the salt lamp in my massage room, is relaxing and comfortable. Next, my massage by Jaime was truly the best massage I have had. Perfect pressure, safe, professional, relaxing, and restoring. Last, I sat in "The Queen's Chair" after my massage, trying to come back to life, and fellowshipped with Ursala, her husband, and a few of the massage therapists. I felt like I was in the true "Community Barber Shop", where I could have spent my entire day. Thank you Westside Massage, I feel like a new woman today! See you VERY soon!!!! More...
I had a wonderful experience here! Everyone was very professional and so kind! Such a calming atmosphere
A lovely experience!
Westside massage is a very professional and relaxing environment. The staff treats you like family and makes sure you are comfortable. I personally see John for massages and he is absolutely fantastic. He knows when to have a conversation, where you’re hurting, and when to let you surround yourself in the serenity of the music. I look forward to having many more massages here - being someone with high anxiety, I have never felt more relaxed. More...
Friendly and caring therapists! Affordable services. Just amazing all around!
Great price, so worth the money! Thank you John!
Great experience, wonderful new place!
I had some knots in my back and Pam was able to see me on super short notice for a deep tissue massage. I felt rejuvenated afterwards and will definitely be heading back again!
A hidden gem on the westside. Ursula, the owner, is very personable and genuine. The shop is quiet, relaxing, and nicely decorated. The massage rooms are very private and comfortable. My masseuse was Pam and she did a great job. Left the shop feeling like a million bucks! I will definitely be back! More...
Professional, clean, welcoming, chill atmosphere. As a massage therapist myself I was very impressed with the skills and techniques John used in my deep tissue massage. It was both, therapeutic and relaxing. I will definitely be a regular client. More...
Always feel awesome after seeing John! Thank you John!
Always a great massage at westside massage! Pam is my favorite, she hits all the troubled spots. Ursula and here team are fabulous!
I was in desperate need of relief from sciatic and lower back pain and I'm so glad I picked Westside Massage! I had John Shipman and he did a great job. He said that area is actually his expertise and was very helpful in explaining what the different muscles do and how they get imbalanced and also gave me some stretches for that area after the session. I felt much better after I left from our session! I could tell he is very passionate about his job and making people feel better. Great to talk to and very compassionate person. Sometimes I feel nervous having a male masseuse but not with John at all! The building itself is very clean, relaxing and nice looking. Highly recommend! More...
John and Ursula did an excellent job of working with me and my fiancée, Sarah. I received deep tissue massage, and Sarah received the “Sweet Serenity” massage. We both received use of CBD oil, this service being the main reason I chose to try Westside Massage.I have neuropathic pain in my lower back and legs, and I left having a huge reduction in my baseline of pain. John focused on my problem areas with expertise and was able to answer questions on the anatomy of my issues. The room was private and relaxing, and both John and Ursula were certain to make sure Sarah and I’s needs were well met.Sarah told me she enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, which included Ursula’s respect for silence throughout the massage. She said she felt relaxed afterward, and her neck and shoulders were feeling much better.John and Ursula seem like genuine individuals, and their skills in massage will have us coming back again for their services soon. More...
John is amazing! Not only is he very talented and knowledgeable but he is very personable and makes you feel right at home. I visited from Colorado and needed some help with back problems and he got me feeling a lot better. You will be in great hands an on your way to feeling great after just one session! More...
John has been so very helpful in getting me feeling better. The massage space is so warm & welcoming. Highly recommended.
