Customer Reviews for Alexandar Massage Clinic & Day Spa (65)

You get what you pay for
First, I LOVE the Alexandar School. I hire massage therapists to work in my health care business and Alexandar graduates are always top notch! Great Program! I went there once to get massage and my experience was lack-luster. The student that they put me with was shy, nervous, and quite timid. But the therapy was as good as any Alexandar graduate I've ever hired, speaks to the quality of education. I must have been there during a student break because the entire clinic was a buzz with talking, joking, complaining, and laughing. Generally unprofessional atmosphere. As someone that runs a health care facility, I'd be mortified if my staff acted like that in front of clients. The worst part was when I tried to check out. The "system" was down and they couldn't process my credit card. A yet unidentified young man offered to write my credit card information down on a 'post-it-note' and 'hold on to it for me'. NO THANK YOU, can you say IDENTITY THEFT IN PROGRESS?!?! The massage was great. The professionalism of the staff and their operating procedures: Very poor. Alexandar has the best massage program hands down but they should really consider training their people in professionalism and business etiquette as well.

Best bang for your massage buck!
Alexandar's Massage School has been an important part of my life for about 20 years now. I am the Deal Queen and so I seek out all the deals I can. I love the private rooms for massages, the friendly and accomodating staff, the free on-site parking, the end of the year specials, the included aromatherapy. One drawback is It can be hit and miss with the students. Once you find one you like, good to stick with them until they graduate if possible. I love, absolutely love, Alexandar's Massage School. I would recommend it to anyone who does not mind having someone learning the ropes working on you. For the most part, the students are excellent and they certainly have amazingly great teachers! Try them out!

Less than impressed :(
I have been here 3 times and not once had a great experience. My first visit was with my husband to which he loved his experience but his was 90 min long on a 60 min massage . . .mine was supposed to be 60 min but might have lasted 40 minutes maximum. Unfortunately I had a young woman that was having an off day arguing with her partner and I was her last appt so i'm assuming she just wanted to leave. Nothing worse than not getting a good massage then having to wait another 45 minutes for someone else. Everyone told me to give it another try, I then returned and had a gentleman do the massage- I was shocked that his nails were long and scraping my skin NOT pleasant! After months I recieved two more gift certificates used the 3rd and it was just ok, the fourth is sitting in my drawer and has expired. I hope everyone else has a better experience than me, they did nothing to fix the situation. The receptionist at the time just said they don't recommend two people come at the same time as one could be dissapointed by waiting- please obviously if im out 20 min early you could surely say your sorry and offer another massage with someone else at a later time. Not happy, but others I know have had good experiences here.

Great massage & Great Deal, what could be better??
I found Alexander Massage School a couple of years ago, when I was on a pretty tight budget, and fell in love. I have been back multiple times, and though the budget is less tight now, I have gotten such excellent treatment each time, that I continue to return.

Great therapists!
Wonderful massages and great environment.

Alexandar Spa and Clinic in Tacoma Wa.
I have been going to Alexandar for a few years and have always enjoyed it. The staff is great from Amber who you first see when you go in to Lori who always gives me a great massage. Anyone who hasn't been here should call and make a appt. right away. I encourage all my friends to go. Dianne Fohn

Tacoma's best-kept secret
I decided to book a spa treatment at Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics after hearing about their discounted student massages from a friend - I figured even on a budget I could come up with the $30 or $40 for an hour of relaxation - and I loved it! I've been back twice and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. The clinic is much cozier and private than other massage schools that I've been to, and they offer traditional massages (Swedish & deep tissue) as well as variations such as the Hot Stone Massage (fabulous, especially in the winter!) and spa treatments like wrap, masks, etc. I have consistently been impressed by their offerings, their professionalism, and of course, the lack of a huge dent in my wallet! I want to keep going back and trying their other services! Next up: the aromatherapy massage.

Awesome place to relax, learn, and enjoy!
Great place to enjoy the therapeutic treatments, wraps, scrubs, massage, steam & sauna, I love them all! My favorite is hot stone massage followed closely by the facial massage. Mmmmm Mmmmm! So very glad we found such a great place so close to home! The staff is always knowledgable, professiona, and eager to make you feel relaxed and happy you came into the spa! Thank you!l
June 3, 2010
Great massage at a great price!
I've been a few times now and have had nothing but great experiences. A student massage is a great value at $30 and I've always come out of my massage totally relaxed and feeling good! Thank you, I'll definitely be back!

Deep Tissue Massage
I went in thinking I wanted a relaxation massage but after talking with Tammy we decided that some deep tissue work would be needed too. Tammy really focused on my legs, which were very tight and this relieved knee discomfort that I had been experiencing for the last few weeks. She also recommended stretching more and yoga, I really have noticed a difference since my visit and have recommended Tammy and Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics to my friends. They also offer very affordable rates.

Great value
I've been a customer at Alexandar School of Massage for several years and I'm very pleased. I love a good bargain and I feel like I get a great massage for my money at Alexandar. I often recommend it to my friends!

Excellent Service
I have been a client of Alexander"s school of Massage for many years. The staff there are very courteous and professional . You are greeted there with a smile, which makes you feel right at home. The student therapists seem very confident in there massages. The students are very courteous and treat you with dignity and respect. I have always received and excellent massage at Alexander's school of massage. I would highly recommend Alexander's School of Massage.

Always a Positive Experience!
I have been a client for the past several years off and on at Alexander & I've always enjoyed my massages there. After starting a new exercise program recently, I decided I could use a good massage so used a certificate for a local therapist that I had received. I was left sore and miserable for days so decided to go back to Alexander where I have always had a positive experience. This time I've scheduled a new spa experience....I'm looking forward to a seaweed wrap - I use both students & licensed therapists. No point in going other places when I'm happy with the services I receive!
March 21, 2010
I attended Alexandar Massage Clinic last week and have had student massages before. The massages have been outstanding at an affordable price of $30. I will continue going there. The staff is friendly and provide excellent service. The licensed practitioners cost $50 which is also a great deal.
March 19, 2010
Excellent Massage
I have been coming to Alexandar School for some time now and am extremely impressed with my massage therapist. Lauri (apologize if I misspelled), was very attentive to me and was truly concerned with my experience during the massage. She explained everything as we proceeded which made me feel very comfortable. I now come to see Lauri every week. Sesilia Lefeau

Wonderful Experience and Affordable!
My first visit here was for a massage. I've had many massages before, and at several different spas/facilities - I have to say that I really enjoyed my experience at Alexander very much, and look forwrad to returning many times, and trying several of the treatments that they offer. The environment is relaxing, clean and professional... the staff is great as well. I highly recommend this spa - it's a treat! Stacee M.
February 10, 2010
overall good experience....
I have had numerous massages and several spa treatments here and overall I would say the staff (both students and licensed staff) are professional and friendly and personalize treatments per your needs. Great value for the service. jolene g .

Great relaxing experience
This is one of the best locations. Very relaxing atmosphere, terrific value, highly skilled staff.
January 21, 2010
A great deal when you're looking for quality spa treatments
I've been to Alexandar's twice now and had a good experience both times. I had the aromatherapy facial and the salt glow rub and enjoyed both of them. They use high quality lotions and the staff (and students) are very professional. The only area I see for improvement is the ambiance. Although everything is clean the decor is a little worn out. Don't expect a high end spa experience and you'll be very happy with the treatment.
January 6, 2010
Great Value
This was my first massage after having back surgery AND it exceeded my expectations. In fact, it rates as one of my best. I've received over 30 massages from Alexandar's students in the last 10 years and over 90% I have loved; only a few were just okay. But I say to myself where can you have someone rub your back for 60 minutes for half the cost of salons. Being on a budget and loving massages, the school provides a beautiful opportunity to pamper oneself. They are always clean, friendly and professional. Many of the students are surprisingly talented; you wouldn't know they just left the classroom. The facility is not luxurious. However, they do an incredible job with their available resources.

Relaxed Muscles
I loved the atmosphere and how well trained the staff was. The rooms are cozy, relaxing, peaceful and full of warmth. My masseuse was very patient and caring. She asked me how I felt during the massage and what areas I wanted her to concentrate on. She also explained what she was doing and how it would help me body to let go of the tension I had. She was very friendly and made sure that the massage table was warm and not too hot. There was classical music playing in the background and that was incredibly soothing. When you first step into the massage clinic the staff greets you and offers you water. After the massage they ask you for your honest feedback on how the massage went. Personally I enjoyed the fact that I could be honest with my masseuse. I was able to tell her where to massage a bit harder or where it started to hurt. She respected my body and how I felt. The experience gave me a sense of happiness and brightened my day up. Their prices are wonderful and they offer so many types of special deals and discounts. I truly enjoy the products they sell. I bought an oil bottle from them and love the wonders that it does to my body and health. I am glad that Alexandar Massage Clinic was recommended to me. I have to say that each time I have gone, I come out with a satisfied feeling.
December 8, 2009
Wow! I feel so pampered
I have had two massages at Alexandar by Melissa, and I love the way she takes such good care of you. My aches and pains are gone. Melissa is very caring and thoughtful as she skillfully removes the knots from my sore muscles. You can't beat a full hour of serenity and tranquil peace for only $30! Make an appointment now and feel the difference.

Great Place
The massages are excellent! Can't wait to go back.
December 1, 2009
Returning guest.
I am looking forward to my massage tomorrow Dec 2,2009 with Lori.A great place to go for relaxsation. The prices are afforable and that allows me to go every 2 weeks.Stop by and give them a try.
November 1, 2009
I was in college and looking to get into getting massages for relaxation and stress relief, I have been hooked since then. Alexander is AMAZING! The staff is very professional and the atmosphere is lovely and relaxing, I have never even concidered going any where else, why change if that you have is fantastic!?
October 27, 2009
Worth It
If you don't have the budget for a $60-100 massage, the Alexandar School is the only place I know of where you can get quality work for a great price. Chery is beyond her years in skill and even though the atmosphere isn't perfect, I'm not there just to relax, I'm there to get knots out, so as long as the work is this good, there could be a marching band in the next room and I'd still go.
September 13, 2009
Great Place
I have been going to Alexanders for many years. The treatment rooms are great and no matter who you choose you are likely to have a great experience. The staff is friendly and accomodating and it is truely a great escape. Thier on line booking system is such a snap and so great. Book an appointment today, you will love the experience and return time and time again. D. Murphy
September 4, 2009
Amazing Massage!!!
This place rocks! If you are looking for a great massage but cannot afford a high-end spa, you should definately give them a try! I have been going here for 10 years and never been dissappointed!!
August 26, 2009
Great school
Alexanders is a great place to get a massage. The students are very friendly and open to feedback. I gave it 3 stars for atmosphere, since the room isn't usually quiet, you can hear creaking of stairs and other people...
August 25, 2009
A review of Alexander Massage. A school that has a clinic that is used to train students and a place for graduates to work. They have a wide array of treatments that would most massage parlors don't have unless you went to a Spa. Price is good, if you don't mind getting a massage from a student.
August 17, 2009
Excellent massage at a great price
This was the best massage I have ever had. Chery has a pleasantly relaxing manner which really enhanced my enjoyment and benefit from it. I am definetly returning for another one as soon as possible.
August 11, 2009
Short on cost not on quality
This may be a school, but they must take great strides in training their students to not only take care of the client but I noticed that they are concerned with teaching their students how to take care of themselves. Chery (my masseuse) was in tune with my muscles. She knew the right pressure and when to move to another area. I enjoyed that she didn't fill the silence with unnessecary chit-chat. I am so going back. Thanks Chery and A.M.S.!
June 23, 2009
Outstanding Value
I love getting a massage and Alexandar's is great and affordable so I can go more often. Friendly staff, I recommend you call today.

Great Massage
Great Massage at Alexandar. My friend and I went together. We had such a great massage that we made a reaturn appointment. It is a great place to go I reccomend it to all my friends.

Excellent Massage
Got a gift certificate and used with a friend. It was so good that we made a return appointment. Patricia was great will hate to see her leave. I reccomend Alexandar to everyone I know.

massage review
I had a massage with Qwanzetta on my birthday 5/22/09. She did a great job, was very gentle, kind, and considerate. I would go to her again and would recommend her. She is especially good on the feet. I had low back pain issues and she did some good stretching and tappotment. I felt very comfort able after the massage treatment. Thank you,very sincerely, Barbra Anderson
April 26, 2009
awesome deal!
I was very happy with the Alexander Massage Spa. I was greeted warmly and professionally. My massage was done by students, but as good as any other massage I've had. The bonus was the price. Full hour massage for half the price. I would definitely come back and refer my friends and family to try them out.
April 15, 2009
great massage
My experience at Alexander massage school and day spa has always been a great! The students and therapists have all been very knowledgeable and thorough . I always feel so much more relaxed and have a sense of wellbeing. Thank you.
March 13, 2009
Good first visit.
Friendly people. Nice calm atmosphere. The student who did my massage was excellent, very professional and took great care.

5 Star treatment at a 2 star price!
In the past 3 years, I have been the victim of 2 MVA's. The most recent was last December when I was hot by a drunk driver. My body has been tied up in knots since then and I only find true relief through movement and masssage. Because I go weekly, I cannot afford to go to a high and Spa or Chiropractors office where they charge upwards of $100 at times for deep tissue therapy. I choose Alexandar Massage School in Tacoma. It is only $30 for a student and a litle more for a LMP. They are easy to locate, easy to park and their massages take place in a cozy spa-like evironment. They never skip on your hour and always use the finest products on your skin. Plus, they do Spa treatements..wraps, scrubs, etc... for really cheap. Trust me, go here once and you will never go back to the expensive Spas!
February 20, 2009
very affordable
I was very impressed by the services i recieved. I was also very happy woth the price. Services by the students are very good.
February 9, 2009
Wonderful Place to Visit
I loved this place. I am not a massage person. I honestly don't like to be touched by strangers, but Amber made me feel so comfortable that I never thought about that at all. I love the setting (a warm, comfortable home), and the hot stone massage felt so fantastic in these bone chilling months. I highly recommend Alexander's. It was easy to find, easy to park, and the people friendly. Amber is great. Thank you!!
February 5, 2009
Great student massage!
I used to go to another school for student massages, but have found the students at Alexandar to be much for friendly and passionate about massage. The environment is very relaxing and the students give a great massage for a reasonable price.
January 30, 2009
Best Spa/Massage Ever!!
I've been visiting this spa for massages for about the last two years. I will never go anywhere else. The people are great and I couldn't ask for anything more. The massages are excellent and I love their body wraps. If you live in Tacoma or surrounding areas I recommend everyone to visit!!!
January 29, 2009
2 hour licensed massage
I recently had a wonderful 2 hour massage with a licensed practitioner. I usually just get a 1 hour student massage but decided to go ahead and try something different. Very nice!
January 22, 2009
Best Value for a massage.
For the price this place can't be beat! I have found the staff to be very friendly, the setting is cozy. Depending on the masseuse some massages have been okay but most have been outstanding! I would highly recommend it. you will enjoy.
January 5, 2009
Great Massage
Alexandar's School clinic offers student massages and spa treatments. I had a great massage from a student for a very inexpensive price. It's clear that Alexandar's does a great job in teaching students. The facility is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful. I am definitely going back and telling all my friends about it.
December 22, 2008
Great experience
Great experience. This place has it all! Sauna, steam room, Swedish/Finnish shower, spa treatments, massages, body work, they accept insurnace, they sell the products they use in their treatments. What's not to love about the school and clinic. Awesome prices too! They also offer military and senior discounts! Amazing place!
December 15, 2008
A Great place to relax
I've had 2 massages at this school, and I came away feeling exactly as I hoped I would feel. It was very relaxing. One thing that stands out about this school, is the location of the rooms. It's in an older house, so you have your massage in a private area, which is very nice. I plan to go back as often as possible.
December 11, 2008
great massage and wonderful price
I found the technique to be wonderful. It is an amazing value for the money. Other then not having the spa atmoshere if you want a great massage give this place a try.
December 2, 2008
great atmosphere
alexandars is a great place for a bargain and you help student therapists work toward their hours. they are competent and know what they are doing; they are well trained.
December 2, 2008
Can't beat the price!
The price for the quality of massage you get is great. It seems like they have a pretty good program, that teaches their students well. You can choose a LMP or a Smp, the main difference is the price, but it also depends on how long they have been in the program. I would recommend Alexandar to anyone that wants a massage or wants to learn how to massage.
December 1, 2008
A good bargin for Massage Therapy
Note* This is a school setting not a spa setting. My student massage was very nice and for only 30 dollars you can't beat the price. My therapist Colleen was very nice.
November 29, 2008
Fantastic Massage at Great Price
This place is Tacoma's best kept secret! Wonderful massages by well-trained students at 1/2 the price (or less!) than expensive salons. I usually go once a month for relaxation and have never been disappointed. Try the swedish or stone massage and add on the sauna/shower for an extra treat. Easy online appointment system and gift certificates are available. I know what I'm asking for this Christmas!
November 19, 2008
Outstanding therapists, clean relaxing atmosphere, and priced right!
November 15, 2008
Don't get a massage anywhere else.
They are the absolute best! Great atmosphere and better quality than the most expensive spas! It doesn't matter if you see a student or a teacher. I've been going there for over three years and will not go anwhere else!
November 13, 2008
Amazing relaxation
I could not believe that I could recieve such an incredible massage from a school for the price that Alexandars charge. I have only used one of the liscensed therapists, but I have heard that the students offer great massages for even less of a charge. The staff was very professional and friendly. I found it to be the quality of a higher end massage for less then half the cost.
October 18, 2008
Nice Vibe! Great services by both students & LMT's
I love this school/spa! It is the best place I know to receive professionally executed student treatments. I have been exceedingly happy with the swedish massage & spa treatments (from salt glows to seaweed wraps!) The building & students give off a nice vibe and the place is tastefully decorated indoors and out. I am a big fan of the wood floors and the Finnish shower. What a find! I almost want to keep it to myself!
September 23, 2008
Exceptional stress relief massage!
I had a wonderful aromatherapy stress relief massage. The customer service was friendly & the massage was everything I had hoped for. Everyone that works there has great attitudes, you can tell they enjoy working there!
September 17, 2008
Great massages for economical price!
It's a great massage school where you can make very affordable appointments with students and instructors. The students (depending on how much time they've been there) do things very 'by the book', but it's always a great massage. The instructors are a little more expensive, but still way cheaper than any other day spas! My husband & I both go there at least once a month and we love it.
September 15, 2008
Great deal for the best massages
I feel like I am in an actual spa when I visit Alexander school of massage. Very professional and curtious staff and studnets provide an array of wonderful spirit lifting procedures. I have been going to them for many years.
September 15, 2008
Good, inexpensive relaxation
A great place to go for a massage when you're on a budget. The students are always courteous and have a fair amount of knowledge. Sometimes difficult to schedule a time on weekends that works, but I just plan on scheduling well in advance.
February 2, 2008
great massage
I didn't know what I would find on my first visit to this clinic. I was pleasantly surprised to find both students and licensed people working together...side by side and helping one another. The massage was one of the best I have ever had and I have brought my friends back here with me now several times. I will continue to come here and I thank you for leading me to such a great place.
