“Gifted hands. When my massage is done I feel like a new person, so relaxed and able to take on the world. Making you glad you requested the service. Can’t wait for my next first class five star massage!” – Bill Beacham

“I can’t seem to find the right words to express how grateful I am to the Spa 500 and Art of Massage for keeping my mind and body healthy. I study musical theatre at Syracuse University. At the same time that I am expected to act and sing, I am also required to dance. The emotional and physical toll my body takes from all of my classes would overpower me if it weren’t for the amazing staff at the Spa. The crippling tension I hold in my body that would eventually lead to injury melts away during each session. Any injury I did have seems to heal faster once my body is helped into a truly relaxed and rested state. And who needs a hairdresser when you have an understanding masseuse to talk to about what is causing all the stress in your life (or to simply smile at you when you fall asleep to their touch and the music). If it weren’t for my family at the Spa 500 and the Art of Massage, my time at Syracuse University wouldn’t have been nearly as rewarding or relaxed. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart” – Elizabeth (Lizzy) Boyke

“The Spa at 500/ Art of Massage is a hidden paradise! Just blocks from downtown is a haven of peacefulness and tranquility. The Spa at 500 offers it all! It has the same amenities you desire without the inflated cost or painfully long drive. Ed and all the massage therapists pay close attention to detail, ensuring you have both a relaxing and healing experience. The spa offers a hair salon, (Goode Looks salon) where Shawndell and her staff are there to make your hair dreams a reality. The Spa at 500 is the perfect choice if you’re a bride looking to get relaxed and ready for your big day, or you’re a high powered business person looking to unwind after a long day. It is favorite place of solace in Central New York. Good job to Ed and his staff for having such an amazing retreat in the heart of Syracuse!”- Kristin Earle, LoFo

“… After my auto accident, the pain in my neck and shoulders was so bad that I was having difficulty sleeping. With each week that passes, I am finding more relief and am optimistic that soon I will be completely back to normal. You have made a believer of me.” – Mario DeSantis, The Mario DeSantis Orchestra
