Indiana’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: ESPA

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that ESPA is a 2019 award winner for massage therapists in Indiana!

Pamper yourself with massage therapy, body treatments, beauty treatments and facial treatments from ESPA in Highland.

ESPA has received dozens of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.91 stars, earning them an exemplary Rating Score™ of 97.12 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five massage therapists in all of Indiana!

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

“What a WONDERFUL place! My husband gave me a gift certificate for Valentine’s day, and I was so excited to discover a spa only a few blocks from me. I enjoyed a relaxing mineral bath with a cup of tea, then a very soothing and relaxing massage. Finally, I had a facial, which was truly the highlight and has left my skin glowing and feeling amazing. The atmosphere and decor is relaxing and beautiful, and you feel comfortable immediately. I signed up for a monthly membership. I was so pleased with my experience. I look forward to treating myself once a month!” – Sarah D.

Not Your Average Massage Therapy Clinic

Virginia, the owner of ESPA, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets ESPA apart from the many other massage therapy clinics in Indiana. Here’s Virginia’s response:

“The professionalism of our therapists and the personal attention we pay to our clients set us apart. We customize every single thing.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at ESPA and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Virginia had to say:

“Our mission is to make people feel better, and we also educate people on how to take care of themselves. We are a holistic health center, so we do incorporate people to improve daily lives.”

Building Success Through Personal Attention

When we asked Virginia about ESPA’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“They love that we are not a chain. We are a family operated, which allows us to give our clients more personal attention. We never ask for reviews; everything happens organically.”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, ESPA has spread the word about who they are and what they do through word of mouth and referrals.

Clearly, Virginia knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Whatever you do, do it with a passion. The rest will come if you enjoy what you do.”


Congratulations to the team at ESPA for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Virginia, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend ESPA in Highland. Visit their website today!

Maine’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: Aim To Be Well

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Aim To Be Well is an award winner for massage therapists in 2019.

If you are looking for a massage therapist that will help you to feel better, body, mind, and soul, look no further than this award-winning company!

Aim To Be Well has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.97 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 95.74 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top 100 businesses and one of the top three massage therapists in Maine!

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

“This was the best massage I have had in a long time. This will be my regular place in Maine. I felt very relaxed but also rejuvenated. Also, there were two of us, and the owner was able to accommodate us. I can’t wait to go back.” – M.M.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Aim To Be Well is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Massage Therapy Clinic

We were excited to learn all about Aim To Be Well and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Melissa Shatney.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Aim To Be Well stand apart from its competitors. Melissa told us about their widespread approach to caring for people:

“We really focus on the whole body, mind, and spirit. We realize that a lot of people that come in with pain might be [suffering from] emotional [pain] or [other] stresses. We try to show people how to address that when they’re not with us.”

She told us about the care she puts into putting together her team:

“When I bring [new massage therapists] on board, I try to bring on people who already have a touch. We can teach skills, but it’s important they they instinctively know how to connect to people through touch.”

Melissa also told us all about her passion for continuing her education:

“I do continuing education and am a traditional naturopath, which is the old-fashioned way to help the body heal through natural substances, such as food, herbs, and water. [I have also recently] signed up for training to become a Certified Alternative Health Practitioner.”

Building Success And Giving Back

Aim To Be Well has earned a wonderful reputation, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have managed to grow their business. Melissa told us that most of their success has been thanks to word of mouth. She told us that when she started her business 11 years ago, she attended every event she could as a way of getting to know people in the community, which was so much fun for her.

She also told us about the ways she gives back to the community that has given her so much support. She said:

“We’re kicking off a community education center. I try to help educate people, because that’s so important. We are lost on how to make ourselves feel better naturally, and it could be something as simple as how much water and how much sleep you get. I’m working on classes for the fall to help bring more education to the community. [They will focus on] simple ways to help people out, and I’ll bring in other professionals, too.”

Melissa also told us about Honeybee Blessings, which she started with her friends:

“I work with an orphanage in Haiti, and I’ve been there a few times. I support them and donate to them regularly to help get the kids off the streets. We are building a wellness center in Haiti as well, which will be run by one of the ladies who is part of the orphanage and is also a nurse, and a company in Pennsylvania has donated a ton of supplements to help them get started. The organization is called Honeybee Blessings. ‘Melissa’ means ‘honeybee’ in Greek.”

If you are interested in donating to the Haiti relief efforts, contact Melissa at honeybeeblessings.org@gmail.com.

There are many massage therapists out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Aim To Be Well has managed to. We asked if Melissa could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Get involved with your community, and be real. People come in because they want someone to understand them, and sometimes, they don’t even really have to communicate it. Pain is more than just a physical thing.”


Congratulations to Aim To Be Well for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Melissa for taking the time to speak with us!

Not Your Average Massage Therapist

We were excited to learn all about Touch Companies and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Tri-Owner, Cassandra.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Touch Companies stand apart from its competitors. Cassandra told us that they are a locally-owned family business that employs licensed professionals. In fact, they have just had a recent addition to the family.

Maine’s Top Rated Local® Acupuncturists Award Winner: Massage Bar Harbor

“I appreciate how much Massage Bar Harbor listens to my needs and tries different things to work out the knots.” – J.P.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Massage Bar Harbor is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We were excited to learn all about Massage Bar Harbor and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Nikki Look.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Massage Bar Harbor stand apart from its competitors. Nikki said:

“It’s our attention to personal detail. We structure every therapy session around you differently. It’s for whatever your needs are. We have several massage therapists and one acupuncturist, and I have a pretty good knack for finding out what the client needs before pairing them with the right person. I think that’s definitely what sets us apart, is finding the right fit for the client before they even walk in through the door.”

We asked Nikki about the Massage Bar Harbor business mission, and she said:

“It is our mission to provide a truly memorable experience to every client. We will accomplish this through offering a wide range of techniques performed by masters of their trade. That’s how I feel, like everybody that works here is a master of their trade.”

Building Success, Online And Off

Massage Bar Harbor has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Nikki how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out. Nikki said:

“Online reputation is huge, but we live in a very touristy town, so I have built relationships with all the inn owners and business owners. We have a large local presence, too, and are part of the Chamber and are very, very active in our community. That’s a biggie.”

Of course, they have also seen the kind of benefit that comes from having online reviews. We asked Nikki what her secret has been behind getting so many great reviews. She told us:

“You just ask! When the client leaves you just say, ‘Hey, if you enjoyed this treatment, we would really love it if you would share with others.’ I don’t solicit reviews in any way, I just ask them to [leave a review], and they do.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Massage Bar Harbor has managed to. We asked if Nikki could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“First of all, you’ve got to put yourself in as many places as you can. It doesn’t matter whether it’s on Facebook, Instagram, or Google Maps. Just put your business out there constantly; every place and opportunity to put your name out there, do it. Hire someone that does really good web work, and make sure your website is up-to-date and it’s fabulous, because that’s the first thing that people will see. People will make a lot of their decisions just based on your presence on the web, so that’s my advice.”


Congratulations to Massage Bar Harbor for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Nikki for taking the time to speak with us!

Pennsylvania’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: Sowelo Massage Therapy

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Sowelo Massage Therapy is a 2019 award winner for massage therapists in Pennsylvania!

When you’re in need of an unbeatable massage in Philadelphia, there’s no better option than Sowelo Massage Therapy.

Sowelo Massage Therapy has received dozens of reviews with an average rating of 5.00 stars, earning them a wonderful Rating Score™ of 98.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top five massage therapists in all of Pennsylvania!

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

“I had been dealing with lower back pain for a couple of months. I was recommended to Sowelo and Lauren from a friend. She really took the time to know where my pain was and worked on those spots. I feel great today and do not have any pain. It was a positive experience, and I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking to get a massage or pain worked out.” – Brian G.

Not Your Average Massage Therapy Clinic

We wanted to learn all about Sowelo Massage Therapy and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Lauren Donahue.

The first question we had for Lauren was what is it that sets Sowelo Massage Therapy apart from their competition in Pennsylvania. Here’s Lauren’s response:

“I worked originally as a medical technician in many different fields. When I decided to go to massage school, all that knowledge helped to propel me. Dealing with social anxiety as a teenager allows me to be empathetic, and in combination with western medicine, eastern medicine, like massage, can go beyond the physical. I don’t stick real close to the clock, and I even give them a cup of tea to make them feel more comfortable before or after. I’m also always reading new studies. I work with my patients to create a treatment plan that is measurable. I’m also able to use my intuition to create a custom treatment plan. My clients tell me they can tell through my touch that I really love what I do, and they tell me that makes such a difference. I give every single session 110 percent, and I work a limited schedule — about five hours — so that I don’t burn out and can provide the best session.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Sowelo Massage Therapy and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Lauren had to say:

“I live across the street from Rivers Edge [nursing home], and I go over there for an hour, often to work with the seniors. They have so many stories to tell, and they are limited on who they can talk to. Sometimes, I just provide them with a gentle hand on the shoulder and someone to talk to. I also teach parents how to massage their children and how to teach them about what is safe touch and what is appropriate, and I teach mothers how to massage their infants to increase their immune system and bond with them.”

Building Success Through Happy Patients

Lauren attributes Sowelo Massage Therapy’s strong online reputation to her commitment to taking care of her patients and teaching them how to take care of themselves:

“My clients have been really great to me; I give them an after-care form about how to take care of themselves, and I offer $10 off for referrals and reviews. But I’ve found that they are so happy with the benefits, they don’t care as much about the $10 off.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Sowelo Massage Therapy has gotten their name out there through Facebook, where Lauren posts about what she’s studying or researching, as well as through Google. Lauren added:

“Business has been doing so well, and I’ve been so blessed.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Sowelo Massage Therapy has. Here’s Lauren’s expert advice for them:

“So many people go through that anxiety of what to do and who to be — just got with your gut. Yes, do what makes you happy; keep your boundaries, and keep your ethics and business plan. Hold your head up high, and be proud [of what you do].”


Congratulations to the team at Sowelo Massage Therapy for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Lauren, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Sowelo Massage Therapy in Philadelphia. Visit their Facebook page today!

I cannot recommend her highly enough and will certainly continue to do these sessions along with the therapeutic exercises I have found.” – Cheryl M.

If you do what you love and love what you do, the money will come because there’s enough business for everybody out there.”

We also asked Susan what her mission is at Healthy Kneads Massage Therapy LLC and how she works to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“I love giving back to veterans and the military, and I was able to go over to the 180th with a group of therapists and give free massages to the men, wives and families of the officers and enlisted men. I’ve gone around and offered chair massages for [military personnel]. My dad was in the Air Force, and my friend is a Navy veteran.”

Building Success by Providing Good Results

Susan attributes Healthy Kneads Massage Therapy LLC’s strong online reputation to her commitment to getting good results for her patients:

“When folks get good results, they will leave a review.”

Iowa’s Top Rated Local® Massage Therapists Award Winner: Best Escape Massage

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Best Escape Massage is an award winner for massage therapists in 2019.

If you are looking for a massage therapist that will help get you stress-free and feeling your best, look no further than this award-winning company!

Best Escape Massage has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across four different verified sites with an average rating of 4.90 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 97.00 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top three massage therapists in Iowa!

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

“I have had one massage before this, and I can say that, by far, Best Escapes will be my go-to from this point on. You can tell the difference between people that have experience and people that set up a table. This is the real deal. I highly recommend them!” – T.S.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Best Escape Massage is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Massage Therapy Clinic

We were excited to learn all about Best Escape Massage and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Rodney Prime.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Best Escape Massage stand apart from its competitors. Rodney told us about the passion they have for what they do:

“We are passionate and compassionate in everything we do. We will do the best to give you the best all the time.”

Rodney also told us about their incredible team, and said that he is very picky when choosing who will work in the studio. He said:

“Our hearts are in it…We are all friends here. I want to make sure it’s a good fit and that they have that caring hand.”

He went on to tell us about their commitment to continuing to study their craft and always finding ways to educate themselves and improve their offerings:

“We are very serious about our continuous education here. We are hungry to continue and develop ourselves as individuals on what is new in the field, for example, cupping. We educated ourselves and have found that it was very helpful, so we applied that to our practice.”

Rodney told us a bit about how he got his start in massage and how his passion for it has only grown over the years:

“I never view this as a job. I needed massage therapy when I played college football, and that’s how I was exposed to it. Since I was 20 years old, I have never gone a month without it. I’ve grown this passion from there. I was going to work on an island, and a massage therapist recommended doing [massage] when I moved there, so I went to school for it. I loved it so much that I never moved [to the island], and I still love [massage] to this day. Stress can be classified as a disease. I believe this is health care, and in Iowa, they see it the same way.”

Building Success Through Hard Work

Best Escape Massage has earned a phenomenal reputation, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have gotten their name out and grown their business. Rodney said that, after 12 years in business, they have paid their dues, and all of their growth is truly organic.

“I truly listen to my clients and educate them on massage therapy. I let them know that they are connected head to toe, so massaging only the tense area may not be the complete solution.
