    I recently relocated to the District from Chicago and was in desperate need of a massage. Anyone who has moved knows that it can be stressful so naturally I was all in knots and had a great deal of lower back pain.

    My mom had traveled with me so she was also in need of a massage. Based off of the wonderful Yelp reviews, she called Unwind on a Saturday morning in the hope that we could get a same day appointment. I'm actually really surprised that we were able to do so at such a great place!

    My massage was with Max who, as you can read on several other reviews, was absolutely wonderful! He applied just the right amount of pressure and was able to relieve my back pain and the knots. My mom was with Nadine and, according to her, also had a wonderful experience.

    I can't say enough about the customer service here. Antonio (the owner) greeted us with a warm and welcoming smile, along with some water while we waited for our massage therapists. He was incredibly friendly and we had a great conversation both before and after our massages were complete. I casually mentioned that it was my mom's birthday and before her massage was complete he went out and bought her 4 cupcakes! What a nice surprise and so very thoughtful!

    You can expect nothing but the best service and the best massage. They are very reasonably priced and it's well worth the investment. Take time and do something nice for yourself and your body!

    This was one of the absolute best massages I have ever had.  I felt like the therapist really paid attention to the areas where I was holding on to the most stress and left me feeling so much better and more relaxed than when I walked in.  The studio itself is very clean and calming and all of the staff that I interacted with were extremely welcoming and kind.  I will definitely be going back!

    My wonderful boyfriend surprised me with a couple's massage for my birthday and I could not have been more satisfied. All of the employees were so pleasant, it was my first time getting a professional massage and I was a little nervous, but they took very good care of us. The atmosphere was so angelic and peaceful, I want so badly to go back to that room and meditate. I have nothing bad to say, I was eerily relaxed for the next 2 days!

    Expensive!!! But it has a great atmosphere. It also seems to be very gay friendly. I walked out after receiving my massage, and there was a gay bar, and a couple of guys kissing outside. No one batted an eye, and I thought, "this is marvelous!"

    I went in for a Swedish massage with Danielle, and I cannot complement her technique enough! She spent time discussing my injuries and concerns about the massage, and even used hypo-allergenic lotion after I explained my sensitivity to smell due to terrible allergies. As a massage novice, I was a bit tense, but after a few moments I began to relax thanks to Danielle's wonderful technique and soothing hands. It is unfortunate that the street noise can be heard from the room, but it's a city, so you have to expect that. The room was nice and dark and the music was relaxing. I scheduled another massage with her as soon as I walked out of the massage room! Can't wait!!!!!

    I actually found this place using yelp while on vacation in DC. My wife and I were able to get an appointment for two hours from the time we called. We had a couples massage that was extremely well priced in comparison with south Florida standarda and it was very thorough.  These were two of the most professional employees I have ever encountered at such an establishment.  I highly recommend!

    Amazing! Loved this place. I will definitely go back again. The waiting area is small but cozy. They have water and hot tea. Everyone is very nice. The decor is beutiful you feel like royalty with how beautiful the rooms are and relaxing.

    My massage was great and very needed for stress and anxiety. My masseuse definitely worked on this knots and problem areas I asked. My session helped my sore and tense spots. All the clients that I saw that finished their session while I waited,were very happy and had great comments for the front desk. It was definitely a calm and peaceful place. They were great about fitting me in when I called the same day. It's very helpful they stay open so late. I definitely recommend them!!

    I have to say that Max is the best massage therapist ever. At least for me! I've never had a problem getting an appointment here. Street parking can be tough in the area though. The space is very clean, quiet and nicely decorated.

    Now back to Max. He is very intuitive. He knows exactly where to go without telling him. He of course asks at the beginning, and I usually say "back, neck and shoulders" which is a large area. Within seconds of him starting he has found the most knotted up tight spot on me. EVERY TIME. He's incredible. His massages are quite deep (as I request), but not painful at all. Some massage therapists push hard where it just hurts. Max has an amazing technique where he can apply a lot of deep firm pressure to loosen your muscles without making you tense up or wince in pain.

    I know others who go to Unwind and see other therapists (including my trainer), and I've only ever heard the same rave reviews. Definitely a must. Rates are very reasonable for the service level and skill. I'm not sure if they are still doing it, but if you can go between 10am-1pm on a weekday, the rates are deeply discounted!

    Parking available.
    Great ambiance.
    Friendly service.
    Great massages!!

    It had been a while since I received a massage. I didn't just want to get any old deal/groupon online for a massage. I wanted a quality massage (not to say you can't get one with the deals, but I didn't want to take any chances). I turned to yelp. I was impressed (and okay, maybe suspicious) of all the five-star reviews.

    I received a 2-hour deep tissue massage with Bri. The massage was great. I like intense massages with a lot of pressure-- and that is exactly what I got.

    Their prices are comprable to other spas.

    I will definitely be back.
