What a great place to get a massage. Riddhi was super professional and informative too when it came to explaining the why, of tension/injury in particular places. Probably the best massage I've had and I've had a lot! Will definitely be back.

I've got tight calf muscles, hips and shoulders/neck from sitting at my desk for too long and playing sports and not stretching afterwards. Riddhi's massages releive these stiff muscles groups and her advice is helping me change my habits to minimize future injuries/tightness. She genuinely wants to help her customers achieve results and have a better life.

I felt completely rejuvenated after my session. Not only was the experience great, but the location was incredibly convenient, making it easy to fit into my busy schedule. I firmly believe that the quality of an experience is measured by how you feel afterwards, and in this case, I felt amazing.

I was hesitant at first about getting massages as I have tried few places but never had a great outcome. After my first visit I felt a massive difference in my body. I felt more flexible and less sore. Since then I have seen Riddhi each week and her massage has done wonders for me. Highly recommend Sparsh to everyone.
