I was new to Pittsburgh and have received massages for years. I tried a few places and wasn't satisfied. A friend from Heinz Lofts referred me to Urban Escape. The owner, Jessica Proia came highly recommended! I immediately felt comfortable the minute I walked in. The atmosphere was private and upscale. I loved the fact that other than the scheduling service, I dealt directly with the owner. Jessica had me fill out a form and demonstrated a great deal of intelligence and sincerity during the consultation! It was refreshing to say anything that was necessary before the massage since we both agreed that the most effective massages are done in silence! I could relax to the music and disconnect! I prefer to have a MT who knows what to do w/out being instructed! The massage was consistantly perfect and thorough! By the completion of the session I was relieved of all physical discomfort. Mentally I was at peace and felt rejuvenated the next day! This has become an ongoing process where I feel much better in general as a result!
