Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: Massage at Mountainside

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Massage at Mountainside is a 2018 award winner for massage therapists in Arizona!

If you’re looking for a massage therapist in Surprise who can help to relieve your pain and enjoy next-level relaxation, look no further than Massage at Mountainside.

Massage at Mountainside has received dozens of reviews from five verified review sites with an average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them an impeccable Rating Score™ of 100.00 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 massage therapist in all of Arizona!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Tracy gave me the best massage I have ever had. I love how calm and comfortable the room is. She uses a hot towel for your feet and covers your eyes with a warming mask. When I go to here, I like to get my muscles worked on and relax. She does an excellent job at giving me both. It is easy to book an appointment. When you want to talk, she will talk with you, and if you want to relax, she lets you do that, too. Sometimes, I fall asleep because it feels so good. I like to visit her one to two times per month.” – Jessica N.

Not Your Average Massage Therapist

Tracy Fate, the owner of Massage at Mountainside, has approximately 24 years of experience in massage, has a significant amount of education and has done massage in many different locations, from chiropractic offices to resort spas.

Through all of that education and experience, Tracy synergistically blends therapeutic massage with luxury touches, like heated towels, heated oils and heated neck and eye pillows, that make her clients melt like butter. She also offers different modalities so that she can meet her clients’ individual needs.

Tracy started Massage at Mountainside in 2017. At the time, she was working at Waldorf, but also wanted to become a foster parent and had trouble finding daycare on the weekends, so she decided to start her own business. Not only did she successfully launch Massage at Mountainside, but she also began fostering in June of 2017 and adopted two children last March.

We asked Tracy why she does what she does and how she works to make the world a better place. Here’s what she had to say:

“I wanted to do this since I was 10 years old. I started when I was a little girl at family parties and with friends, and loved giving people massages. It keeps me excited to help people feel better. Today, I helped a woman who had been to a chiropractor and done physical therapy, and after the massage, she said it was the first time in a year her leg didn’t hurt.”

Building Success by Designing Massages to Meet Needs

Tracy credits Massage at Mountainside’s strong online reputation to her commitment to reading her client and designing a massage that fit their unique needs. Many other massage therapists only offer generic massage.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Tracy has grown her business mostly through word of mouth and repeat customers. She also solicits customers through Facebook and has reached out to her community by hanging signs, leasing a room at the gym and doing chair massages.

Tracy says that she feels fortunate to be in a career where customers love to come see her:

“…Everyone loves to come see their massage therapist. No one ever comes in a bad mood or is unhappy to be there. I’m not a dentist or a tax man. I don’t want anything but to make you feel better and relieve your pain.”


Congratulations to Massage at Mountainside for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much Tracy for taking the time to speak with us!

If you’re looking for a great massage, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment with Tracy at Massage at Mountainside. Visit their website today!

This is just one of the rave reviews they’ve received:

“I highly recommend this martial arts group! As an older mom who literally got coaxed into a class by her friend almost a year ago, I have found this to be a wonderful program. The work they do with kids is outstanding and I have met so many respectful, helpful, and kind teenage students that have trained ‘up’ in their school that I hope to get my younger kids involved. Speaking as a student, they are all very good teachers. If you are willing to put in the hard work and effort you WILL learn with them helping you. And the improvement in physical fitness and strength has been great. I recommend this for all ages. A wonderful family run, ethical, local business worth supporting.” -Trina B.

Reviews like this have built up a 97.40 Rating Score™ and a 4.94 average star rating on verified review sites, making Aurora Martial Arts a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Martial Arts Studio

Lou Donadio, the owner of Aurora Martial Arts, took some time to chat with us about his business’ remarkable online reputation.

We wanted to know what it is that sets Aurora Martial Arts apart from other businesses in the area. Lou said:

“We are awesome! We really believe in delivering a world-class training experience for each of our students. I have been practicing Martial Arts for over 30 years and every single one of my instructors has been taught by me. It’s important to have a sound understanding of what each child needs for their learning and we teach based on those needs. We are family-owned an -operated — me, my wife, son, and daughter are all a part of the business. We also have an outstanding facility with just over 6,000 square feet and two training floors.”

Building Success With An Excellent Team

So, what exactly is the Aurora Martial Arts secret to success? “We teach amazing classes, it really starts there. We put our students first and really teach to their needs,” Lou said. “We have great communication with their parents and their parents notice a difference in the progression of the classes and their child’s enjoyment of them.”

Here’s Lou’s wise advice to other businesses that want to build up an impressive online reputation:

“Be of service to your clients. Whatever your service is, remember that the experience you create for them is critical and how well you deliver the service is too. Whatever you do, be the best at it and keep your clients interests at the front of mind.”

“I went and had a prenatal massage done with Chancee. I must say, it was the most incredible massage I have ever experienced. The employees were so nice and welcoming. Chancee was super sweet and very attentive. I’m currently 33 weeks [pregnant] and I have definitely had my share of pregnancy aches and pains. During the massage, I felt as though all that stress was massaged away. They are very inexpensive and offer different services. I was immediately thinking about my next massage I am going to book! I would definitely recommend you to give this spa a try. You will not regret it.” -Bridgette M.

A One-of-a-Kind Massage Therapist’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Our team spoke with Chancee herself about her business’ extraordinary online reputation.

First things first, we asked Chancee about her secret to success. “I feel because we are such a small town my friends on social media are friends of mine or friends of clients and we take care of them like friends,” she said. “We take each client’s needs into consideration at the moment of the treatment and explain the service to get the issue fixed at the time of visit.”

Making the World a Better Place By Helping People Heal

We wanted to know why Chancee does what she does and how she helps her community. Here’s what she said:

“I have been a massage therapist for more than 10 years and teach people that this is affordable to fix the problems they have. It’s not just a massage for special occasions like Valentine’s day. I started off wanting to help out elderly who didn’t have access to my services.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Chancee! Congratulations to the team at Chancee’s Wellness Spa for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

I still continue to recommend this office to others — both the massage and acupuncture were wonderful, and Dr. Lu personally checked in on my progress regularly.

After one visit, I saw immediate relief. After fewer than two weeks, I saw stellar improvement. I (with very minute exceptions) returned fully to my job and also got the bonus of much-improved sleep.” – Eillen D.

New Mexico’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapist Award Winner: Tree of Life Massage

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tree of Life Massage is one of the top five massage therapists in New Mexico for 2019!

“I want to recommend Tree of Life Massage to anyone with a child that is suffering in chronic pain. My 10-year-old son has a condition called AMPS, which stands for Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain, in his back which has stemmed from Chronic Juvenile Arthritis. He is also Autistic, so he is very sensitive to his surrounding and people touching him. Chrystal took her time, explained everything she did before doing it, was very gentle and allowed him to make decisions about what he was comfortable with. She was so amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone that has chronic pain. He even asked if he could go back another time because she made him feel relaxed and taught him how to relax his muscles. I can’t thank her enough for giving him relief and being able to come into his world a little bit and giving him some control.” -Briana R.

“Chrystal took time to listen to my concerns; I felt relaxed and comfortable during my massage. Chrystal was professional and caring, she checked often to see how I was doing, and adjusted accordingly. I felt very good after my massage and will come back as often as I can!”

Reviews like these have earned Tree of Life Massage a 92.15 Rating Score™, a perfect five-star average rating, and a 2019 Top Rated Local award!

As with all of our award winners, we wanted to know what this successful massage studio’s secret to success is. “We do everything ourselves and study how to market our company online. We make it a point to ask for reviews just once after the massage and tell the customers how much we appreciate them and their support of small and women-owned businesses,” Chrystal said.

Making the World a Better Place By Encouraging Whole-Family Wellness

Chrystal is particularly interested in ensuring that each member of a family is well-taken care of. “We specialize in pregnancy massage but will work with everyone. I believe there are different seasons of life and there is an appropriate time for a massage in every person’s life. I work with whole families and really enjoy that aspect of the job.”

Of course, being an award-winning business owner, Chrystal has quite a bit of helpful advice for others. She says:

“Consistency is important. Be available to your customers. We’ve moved once in 10 years. People remember the massages and are able to find us easily.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Chrystal! Congratulations to the team at Tree of Life Massage for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!
