Lisa and Sara Jean did a couples massage for my bf and I. They where amazing. Absolutely worth every penny. They where sweet and amazing. Definitely go!
Ive been getting massages all over (including abroad) and I can say the NOLA bliss is one of thee best out there. They are so professional and accommodating here, end the atmosphere is wonderful. Shout out to Joel whos deep tissue massage absolutely changed my life! Will return!
The CBD massage was amazing!
Great place to relax
Noelle Was absolutely Amazing. Was literally a transcendental experience. I never heard of Ashiatsu Massage before but she's been doing it for over 15 years and you can tell. The best deep tissue massage I've ever had and she was able to locate the different knots in my neck and back and was not only able to remove the knots but release the stiffness and tightness in my neck and lower back.
If I lived in New Orleans I would go see her once a week. I did not know that it was possible to feel as well as I did after an hour and a half. Coupled with her (Noelle) Knowledge and Experience and the overall ambiance of the place you will not be disappointed. The Ashiatsu and Himalayan Salt Stones Massage was Out of this world... 10 Stars. If you want an out of body massage experience definitely go see Noelle and make an appointment Today!!. Already recommended this place to all my friends that live in New Orleans area.
My first visit to NolaBliss was excellent! Faith was my massage therapist and I chose the ashiatsu massage! Faith was calm, professional and lovely. I have muscle and joint pain from years of working on my feet and after just one visit, I felt amazing! I plan to continue seeing Faith to help with my issues.
The massage room was clean, peaceful and well-equipped. There are sanitation areas and the building is super easy to find. I have already recommended Faith and NolaBliss to others. I cant say enough about how wonderful Faith made me feel after just one visit. Book with her!!!
Went in for a couples massage with my wife while on our honeymoon. For context, I seek semi-regular massages due to work. This was the most expensive massage I have paid for in my life, and that money was well worth it.
The service we received was absolutely worth every dime, and it was very likely the best massage I've ever had. They managed to work out several problem areas I had after a long week of running around visiting museums and flying. It was absolutely worth every moment we paid and then some. If you're looking for a good massage on the area, and it fits inside your budget, they are worth the money that they charge!
Best last minute massage find ever. We were in town three days for a conference and were tight from the travel here in the airline seats and all the walking. Called and they were able to get three of us in the following morning. All of us walked our very pleased and refreshed. Some of the best massages wed ever received anywhere, Highly recommend!
Nicole was absolutely amazing. :) I had the Ashiatsu BarefootBar therapy. It's heaven on Earth! Will be back!
Hands down, this is the Best place in New Orleans for body work. The therapist are superb
My husband and I got a couples massage here while we were in town for our honeymoon. The massage was absolute heaven. Great amount of pressure and absolutely relaxing. Great addition to our honeymoon!
My husband and I went in for a couples massage and it was one of the best ones yet! We had Shannon and Elaine and let me tell you, they worked their magic. I was having lower back pain for weeks and Elaine was able to work it out in one session. This was my husbands first professional massage and hes gone on and on about how much better he feels, thanks to Shannon. Both ladies were exceptional and the atmosphere was extremely soothing. Cant wait to book our next appointment at Nola Bliss with Elaine and Shannon. Thanks for the great experience!
Enjoyed treatment. Friendly staff
Very clean and COVID appropiate!
Fantastic atmosphere and massage! My massage therapist got my neck fully back to normal movement! Great pressure and felt refreshed and pain free after!
Ive enjoyed every experience ive had at nola bliss! Sherry was great at communicating during the session and feeling out problem areas. 5 stars isnt enough. book with Sherry!
I visited Nola Bliss and received a massage from Shannon. It was superb! Hands-down one of the best massages of my life. She is gifted and very caring. Thank you so much!!
I really enjoyed my massage dont remember the ladies name who did mine but the atmosphere was lovely I gave 4 stars because there was no waiting area upon arrival if we want to come early no robes and slippers offered but she hit Alll the right spots they even sit you down afterwards and discuss your problem areas
I have had massages for years but Hellen was such a great therapist that she did not only massage but stretched my muscles. Thanks and my husband really enjoyed his massage. Definitely the best place
We had a couples massage today while we were visiting NO. Let me tell you, the two ladies were amazing! I have never been so relaxed. She focused on my problem areas perfectly (arm and shoulder.) This was only my 2nd massage ever- the first one I was in so much pain the next day I swore them off for 15 years. No after this one, Im taking the ladys advice and looking for a monthly massage when I get back home.
To the two ladies that worked on me and my spouse: yall rock. Thank you!!
Eric and Shannon did a great job on our couples massage. They gave excellent pressure and we would definitely visit again when in New Orleans.
Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were in dire need of massage, especially after walking around the city for 6 days. The couples massage with CBD ointment and essential oils was the best! So relaxing, we were happy wet noodles afterwards. It was hard to not pass out! Such a long overdue experience with great masseuses, they were very thorough and attentive, focusing on or avoiding any area that we specified. We also appreciate all the COVID sanitary precautions with masks and hand washing upon entry. We can only hope that our next massage is something close to what we had here!
Odessa is amazing. I had a really good time with her. Shes kind, sensitive and clearly knows what shes doing. I had a very good experience.
First Id like to say Shannon and Elaine were absolutely fantastic Ive never received such superb customer service met with a real skill for what they do.5 stars is not enough to be honest. Professional and kind they make sure youre comfortable in every way. My wife and I will definitely be back. I have an arthritis condition and Im often in allot of pain. When I say I havent felt this good sense before I was diagnosed its no exaggeration. Highly recommend this place and these lovely ladies.
Extremely relaxing & very professional!
The environment was really nice too!
Probably the best massage I've ever had!! HIGHLY recommend these folks. Couples massage was relaxing and completely enjoyable.
Awesomely relaxing one hour massage! Next time I'm in New Orleans, I'll be sure to book an appointment for another massage.
Absolutely LOVED it here! After the ashiatsu with cbd massage I felt refreshed, relaxed, and ready to go 10/10 would recommend and am definitely going again in the near future!
Had a couples massage. Eric was awesome!
Had a great relaxing time. Had a couple cbd massage!
Nice hotel!! Great location
We had a couples massage and the staff was professional, caring, and communicated clearly with us ahead of time about COVID-19 Protocols prior to the massage. We did have to wear a mask when face up but that was fine as the massage was so relaxing. We did a swedish style massage with the cbd and essential oils add on. So relaxing! Highly recommend.
Absolutely awesome service and experienced massage therapists. They made accommodations so that all three of us could receive our massages at one time. I highly recommend!
Very quiet and relaxing. All employees I encountered were very professional and nice. They made us very comfortable from the moment we walked in
Odessa always does an amazing job. I feel noticing better not only immediately after the massage but days later. The atmosphere is relaxing, private and professional.
My wife and I had our first message ever here and it was amazing.... we did the 90min Ashiatsu with hot stones. The two female therapist we had were awesome and highly recommend anyone looking for a message to check this place out. Will be back looking into the monthly package.
Ok, truly the best massage spa in nolaS babe , Its that simple taking from. A retired fighter whose turning 50 yrs old in 5mths , the owner truly care about pleasing their customers. And I am a spa where they are truly on their game.
Amazing job! This place is top notch. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Sara is a natural healer. I'm so grateful I decided to try atlas balancing. I'm still noticing improvements. Mostly in my upper body. After the massage& acupuncture, I had my first night free of back pain in quite some time. Thank you, Sara! You rock!!!
I had a great prenatal massage here by Sue! The staff was friendly and welcoming. The ambiance was relaxing and inviting. Sue was great, very intuitive and a kind soul. Highly recommend!
Jenn was great.
Best message ever.
Great spot in downtown NOLA that isnt a hotel. Have had two massages by two different people and both were great. One change needed- ability to book 60min massage via website. I'd go much more often if this was available. 90min is usually too long.
First time getting this kind of massage with feet. My therapist was great but I couldnt help but keep thinking how much work it was for her to suspend herself up and massage with my feet when she could just do it with her hands. Still a great massage though.
Excellent Therapist, excellent massage, will definitely be going back!!
This is the place I resort to whenever I need to relax. Their massage techniques are quite helpful.
Val was awesome. I feel so relaxed.
My husband and I had a couples massage here. Great experience! We both came in with pain and left feeling MUCH better. Ask for Nicole! :)
Massage was wonderful other than freezing.
Too cold in room!!
Told the therapist. When I got up from massage the thermostat was on 69.
Wont go back for that reason.
After being a massage therapist for a number of years, you please the client with the temperature not the therapist.
I woke up with an incredibly painful strain in my neck and a cross country flight the same day. I was desperate for relief and booked a massage at NOLA Bliss. Kennedy is a miracle worker. She has a deep knowledge of anatomy and how the muscles and nervous system interact. By the time my hour was up, I was almost entirely pain free. I cant recommend her highly enough.
Great massage. Paid special attention to my individual needs. Great communication throughout. Left feeling loose and refreshed!
Walking in feeling stiff and walk out a change person i received a great message with my lovely partner we will be back soon thanks guys
NOLA Bliss was wonderful for a couples massage. My husband had the ashiatsu massage and I had a deep tissue massage. Both therapists were friendly, knowledgeable, and outstanding at their craft.
I enjoyed an incredible massage by Michelle & my boyfriend loved Nicole's work! We had a beautiful couples massage & were walking on air for the rest of the day. It's a soothing space on the third floor of a building in the CBD. I recommend arriving early to find parking, most of which requires payment.
The ladies did a really good job. Very professional and understanding.
Ashiatsu massage was a great experience! Definitely will be returning.
I just had a massage from Sue. There are good massage therapists and there are gifted massage therapists. Sue is truly gifted. She provides the perfect balance of intuition, strength/deep tissue and relaxation. She is very knowledgeable about the body but also just knows where to take the massage. That was one of the best massages I've ever had and my body feels amazing. I highly recommend her and this place.
Great massages. My guy and I enjoyed them.
Helped me outvin a pinch, plus lady was very nice, great place
All the Frenchmen and Bourbon Street walking is hard on the dogs, stop in for a reasonably priced foot massage. Your feet will thank you.
My wife and I went for couples massage and let me say that Nicole and Raquel were amazing. They both did a great job finding the trouble spots that we didn't even know we had.
as a wellness provider myself I must say, Nola Bliss is the place to be. I enjoyed my time there. from the time I walked in I was blown away, to the awesome Ashiatsu massage. thanks, I'll be back soon
I really enjoy the experience. Great atmosphere and the employees are very professional. It was a very relaxing experience. My fiancee and I will ve visiting again.
I am in town for a long weekend trip and was referred to Nola Bliss for a massage! Wow! Did not disappoint. At all. I am an LMT myself and have been having immense pain in my left shoulder/arm area and I have not been taking care of myself very well lately. Gretchen was my massage angel yesterday! We discussed my needs and concerns and she did an amazing job! She focused in on the areas that needed a great deal of attention. We ended up extending the 60 min to a 90 mid session and it was perfect, the facility quickly accommodated the request and I am so glad we did! I picked up a few new techniques as well! Gretchen did an absolutely amazing job and I highly recommend her!!
Friendly staff with great talent!
One of the best massages Ive ever had. Raquel was amazing and really listened & focused on the problems I was having. She was very professional & very sweet and the place had a really cool, peaceful vibe. Highly recommend.
This was the first message ever for my fiancee and I and we had the best experience. We did a couples message and the staff there made sure any concerns we had were put to ease. Needless to say the massages were AMAZING! Left there feeling brand new and will definitely be coming back again. If you're considering coming here for any of they're services, I highly recommend Nola Bliss.
The best massage I have had to date. Channel was perfect.
Great prices,excellent service.
Got a much needed massage here the other day. What a wonderful experience. Calming music and nice facilities. Cleanliness is most important to me and the sheets were very clean as well as the pillow you put your face through. My masseuse was very kind and asked me several times if it was ok. Ashiatsu is pretty intense and I had never experienced this type of massage so communication with her became important to get the right pressure. It was amazing. All my tension was gone. I was walking on clouds. Definitely recommend this spot!!!
Came in for a couples massage on a Sunday afternoon. I booked the appointment on Thursday online and was able to get in without a problem. I got multiple reminders via text and email. We arrived at the door which has a large sign out front, so it's easy to find. We called upstairs and they let us in after confirming our appointment. A bit of a hassle, but it made me feel really safe. We walked in and met our masseuses before filling out paperwork and having the usual conversations. The room is warm, comfortable, and smells great. The heated tables were lovely and the white noise machines were great too. They have a bathroom and offered us drinks, but there aren't private bathrooms or changing rooms. They do their best to try to drown out the sirens and chatter on Lafayette street, which is not an easy feat, but we were still very relaxed. We both had a great massage. Our masseuses were very attentive to our goals and focused on the areas that were sore. We left feeling very relaxed. Easy to make an appointment, comfortable room, and attentive masseuses!
We were super last minute honeymooning and neeeeded a massage. The super-sweet bearded guy (I think I heard is the owner's husband. I'm so sorry for not remember your name!), went way above and beyond to make sure he squeezed us in. Kennedy and Eric didn't just help us relax, but they both had to deal with our long term injuries. On top of that, they humored me as I rambled on about our Weird Al themed wedding, along many other things. I don't think any other massage could ever beat this one. HIGHLY recommend them.
My husband and I were just here for the weekend and decided at the last minute to get a couples massage. Mackenzi worked us in. It was amazing!!! I will 100% come back. Both our therapists were wonderful and for the first time ever someone was able go get my husband's back to release. I absolutely recommend.
Great place to get a massage. They are complying with the coronavirus guidelines and have a hand washing station and you wear a mask during your massage.
Ask for Eric!
Had a great experience. My wife and I had a couple massage and enjoyed.
Im ready to fly down every month from Michigan for Mckenzie and Faith to fix my husband and I. I have had many massages, but this was by far the best. I cant even think of enough adjectives to express the bliss i was in. My big thing is pressure and when Mckenzie called herself the meat mallet i was ready. My back is a terrible mess--im talking knots on knots--its where i carry all my stress and almost debilitating anxiety. She got IN THERE. No muscle was left untouched, i didnt have to ask her to use more pressure, she just knew based on the condition of my muscles. I melted under her hands. Absolutely incredible. Then hitting those feet after walking the city for 2 days...my rule of thumb is its not a real foot massage if the toes aren't touched. Every little piggy got attention. I cant say enough. I can't wait to come back. I encourage everyone to choose this spa.
Absolutely love. I had a horrible pain in my neck for MONTHS and after my visit it felt soooo much better. Now a week later and it's completely gone! Staff was so sweet and informative. Would recommend 100%
I absolutely loved my session with Nola Massage. She was very intuitive, pressure was perfect.
Best. Massage. Ever. I was hesitant to try ashiatsu but wow, I'm glad I did because it was life changing. I'll never get anything else. The staff was super friendly and talented, and the location is cute and cozy. Perfect experience.
Just had an amazing couples massage with Nicole and Raquel. These ladies are awesome at what they do. The atmosphere is so calm and peaceful. Nicole did some deep tissue work on my neck and shoulders. Those areas are always tight and sore. She has skillful techniques and did an outstanding job. I wish we lived in Nola so I could go to her regularly. Will definitely be booking again when we come back for another visit
I've had two 90 minute Ashiatsu massages from Laura and they've both been phenomenal! The Ashiatsu massage IS a deep tissue massage!, but it really targets my issues. Laura is very professional and really attuned to my areas of tension and knots. My skin glows afterwards, I sleep better, and my energy level improve! Love NOLA Bliss and Laura!
This place is AMAZING!! I came here during covid because of severe back pain. They have the most stringent protocols I have seen! The therapists were awesome and professional.
First time trying the Ashiatsu Barefoot Barmassage with the CBD add-on. Odessa was AMAZING! Felt so good... Worked out all my problem areas. Perfect amount if pressure. Left feeling so relaxed, comfortable and rejuvenated. Definitely a must if you're looking for a truly terrific massage experience. Highly recommend!
Best massage I ever had!!
I just had my CBD massage with Erin, it was hands down the best massage I've ever had! She really got into the knots while still being gentle and even some I didn't even know I had! I've had massages at upscale hotels and let me tell you, this massage blew every one I ever had out of the water. My body feels amazing! Thank you so much!
I admit I was hesitant about the Ashiatsu massage. However, highly recommend. Im a small framed person and was concerned it would simply be too much or uncomfortable. Wrong. Hands down best massage experience of my life. Ive had many deep tissue massages. This was THE BEST. I could not recommend this any more. Do it.
It was the boom
Out of this world massage. I can easily say that it is the best place to go if your body hurts and immediate relief is much needed. Last time Eric did a full body massage and I walked out like a brand new person))) It is on the border of pain and pleasure. Intense and thorough - feels like every muscle was worked on. Going there again tomorrow, and looking so much forward to it!
Sara was awesome. I booked a couples massage and it was my husbands first time getting a massage. He was happy and felt Much more relaxed after. Highly recommmend. Such friendly staff members
Odessa has magic hands !
Just like so many others say... My ashiatsu massage with Mackenzie was the best massage of my life. I have chronic tension and she mashed it all away!
My fianc and I went for massages today at Nola bliss, the massage deserves more than five stars!!
OMG!! Where do I begin!! Me and my husband got our first massage today!! (Couples massage)AMAZING!! The massage was from head to toe and felt AMAZING!! I have never felt that relaxed in my life.. We have decided to make this a once a month activity!! Thank you so much!!
The best massage Ive ever had!
Cassie just gave me THE best massage of my life. I am in town for a conference and was able to get an appointment the next day. She listened to me and worked my body in ways that I didn't know possible. I feel incredible now! I just wish she lived and worked in my own! I wish I could give her 10 stars!!
My husband and I had a 60 minute massage and it was amazing! We got there about 10 minutes early and they offered bottled water and tea as we waited. This was my first time and it was relaxing and comfortable the whole time! We had two female masseuses (can't remember their names) and they were both professional and did a great job working our our tense muscles! Understandably, there was nothing to be done about the construction outside, but the room was a comfortable temperature and very clean!
Will definitely book another appointment on our next visit!
I just had an amazing 90 minute massage with Chanelle. She used the right amount of pressure in all the right places. She found muscle soreness or knots I was not even aware of. We are in town for a few days and I left my high end hotel to get a massage at Nola Bliss based on reviews.I might add that I felt the prices were reasonable too (This is not a Thai foot massage place). The place is clean, comfortable , easy to get and the service was great. This will be my go to place to get massages when visiting,
My boyfriend and I had wonderful massages with Nicole and Chenelle today. He had a traditional massage, where I wanted to try Ashiatsu. We both get massages regularly back in Portland, so are very picky. I'm a massage therapist, so I know talent when I see it. We both loved our experiences and highly recommend!
I was So lucky to get in on a last minute cancellation as I was in agony (high heels + heavy costume for a Halloween ball did no favors to my already wrecked shoulders).
First time here and first time doing Ashiatsu which was absolute bliss for this deep tissue junkie - one of the best massages I've ever had!
Adding this to my regular places when I'm in town.
Great experience! They got me in last minute and Sara Jean did an incredible job. Not just a relaxing massage put also great for targeting trouble areas. If i lived there i would definitely go back!
Great massages! My husband and I received a couples massage at Nola Bliss, and were pleasantly surprised by our experience. This is not a traditional relaxing/lounging "spa" experience (it's located in a medical office building?), but the massages were fantastic! It's obvious that massage is their specialty and the staff take great care in their bodywork.
12/10!! Highly recommend! Sarah is amazing we went for a couples massage and ran a few minutes behind.. not only did both therapists make us feel instantly at ease and relaxed but they made sure to give us our full time even though it was our mistake for running late!
Thank you Nola Bliss!!!
This was my first time at Nola Bliss - Makenzi was so knowledgeable and considerate! She answered all of my questions and focused on all of my trouble spots. I will definitely be returning there!
I wish I could give this six stars - McKenzie (sp!!) is amazing. I'm here for a three day work trip and I will definitely find time to come.
My body feels completely different - so much better!!!!
This was my first ashiatsu massage and I am never going back! Kennedy was phenomenal and I'm looking forward to booking my next appointment already!
I just had a massage from Sue. There are good massage therapists and there are gifted massage therapists. Sue is truly gifted. She provides the perfect balance of intuition, strength/deep tissue and relaxation. She is very knowledgeable about the body but also just knows where to take the massage. That was one of the best massages I've ever had and my body feels amazing. I highly recommend her and this place.
I was in town for the weekend and needed a little pampering after walking around the city so much. I had my first Ashiatsu massage tonight, with hot stones, and I cannot tell you enough how wonderful it was. The office was clean and calm and tranquil, my therapist was concerned with my needs and very communicative. I feel amazing and can't wait to find this massage specialty when I get back home. Definitely a must go to spot in the city!
Hands down (pun intended) the best massage I have ever received. In town for work, I had originally booked with Massage Envy at the last minute. The therapist canceled due to illness. Sorry he was sick. But so glad he canceled! I found NOLA Bliss and made an appointment with Jen. This was not a "fluff and buff" type run down. This therapeutic, deep tissue work my runner's body needed. Jen is so knowledgeable, and even though some spots were very tender, she worked me through it and the results are fabulous. I can't say enough good things and am already looking forward to returning.
Great massage! I ended up having the walk on you mixed with deep tissue felt amazing! Great place. A little hard to find but once there it is great.
I had a 90 minute deep tissue massage and I didn't want it to end. Very clean place and friendly staff. It was easy to walk to from my stay at Le Meridian Hotel. Payment & tipping was easy as well.
I often take care of others and remind them to make time for themselves but forget to practice this as well. A friend gifted me a 90 minute ashiatsu massage as a way to help me relax and I agreed to give it a try.
I arrived early to make sure I found parking and to fill out the client intake form so that it wouldn't run into my service time. My appt was at 3 pm, but I got there around 2 pm. Since my treatment was 90 minutes I parked directly across the street and paid for 3 hours = $17.25 through the pay by text method. I couldn't get away parking on side streets since it was only 2 hours max. Parking cost was a little steep.
Kennedy was my therapist and she was very friendly. I loved that she was super knowledgeable and purposeful with each movement. I appreciated her ability to control the level of intensity and she made sure I was relaxed while working out my problematic areas. The intensity was based on a scale from 1-10. I went up to a 7 at some points but just breathed through it. What really made my experience exceptional was my therapist Kennedy. Her vibe and personality made my first ashiatsu experience so comfortable and relaxing. I am still trying to accept that I had a full massage with someone's feet. Ha! I will end it here by thanking Kennedy for helping my slight arm injury from axe throwing, too!
We were in NOLA on vacation when I woke up in paralyzing pain. This place was close to the hotel we were staying at and they had an opening and I was so lucky. Olivia was my masseuse and she was amazing. I left there in no pain and able to enjoy the rest of our vacation. I highly recommend them. You won't be sorry!
This place is just nice and neat, I love the vibe and it was DEFINITELY the best massage I ever had. I am not a talkative person but Raquel was so awesome and we had great conversations, a lot of times massages are not personable, she was definitely amazing and professional and personable I would suggest this place 100%
I have Yelp to thank for finding Nola Bliss Massage and being introduced to the amazing Ashiatsu technique! I am somewhat of a massage aficionado, always trying different styles/techniques/spas and based on the reviews, I knew I had to add the Ashiatsu experience to my repertoire. It was every bit of amazing that other reviewers said it was. Kennedy had a great flow, technique, pressure, and the smoothest/softest feet I never knew existed. (I even asked her for tips on how to get and keep my feet as soft and smooth as hers)
Overall, a great experience. Clean and cozy space, friendly and professional staff and quite possibly one of the best massages of my life!
Parking isn't the best, I've had to pay to park on both visits ((pricey). Free street parking may be somewhere fairly close by, but I've always gone at night and preferred to be a shorter walk away, and the only option in that department is paying.
I found this business on Yelp. I was visiting NOLA for vacation and I needed a massage not too far from my hotel. The salon is located near downtown in NOLA and the salon was very calming clean and peaceful. I felt super relaxed. I highly recommend.
I took advantage of a special rate on the 90 minute massage. Olivia did a great job of working out my lower back which had been bothering me for a few weeks. The whole experience was pleasant and I would (in fact, already have) recommended NOLA Bliss to anyone looking for quality massage work
My husband and I made an appt. for a 90 minute couples massage. He had the ashiatsu and I had a deep tissue massage. Both therapists were friendly, knowledgeable, and outstanding at their craft. It was truly a wonderful experience for these out of town tourists!
I Booked a 90 minute couples massage for our trip to New Orleans and it was absolutely amazing! I would love to go back if they were not so far away!
I found this business on Yelp. I was visibly NOLA for vacation and I needed d a massage not too far from my hotel. The salon is located near downtown NOLA and the salon was very calming clean and peaceful. I felt super relaxed. I highly recommend.
I was visiting NOLA for a work conference and had a few free hours to kill. I called Nola Bliss on a whim to see if they could squeeze me in on short notice, and they had an appointment available within 20 min. I had a 90 min Swedish deep tissue massage, and I am so glad I decided to try out this place. Nicole T, my therapist was wonderful. She made me feel so welcomed and comfortable, and was courteous of my needs. She did a great job on my very tense back and neck, and followed up the appointment with great aftercare advice for stretches that would help manage my problem issues. I also took her advice to take an epsom salt bath before bed, and all my lingering soreness has vanished. Looking forward to a comfortable nights sleep tonight, finally! Thank you Nicole T!
I just had the best deep tissue massage I have ever had In my life. Mackenzie paid attention to every detail and was very knowledgeable on what I needed and of the body. I have left previous massages and been upset because the masseuse didn't apply enough pressure or just wasn't familiar enough with the human body make up. I feel amazing!!!!! I will be back very soon. Thank you so much Mackenzie

I had a relaxing, therapeutic deep tissue massage from Odessa. Everyone was professional and the environment was clean and calm. I'm so grateful they could accommodate a last minute appointment. It was much needed self care after a couple nights of NOLA shenanigans!
Had an issue with sciatica while traveling, these folks took good care of me and are extremely professional and knowledgeable about their profession!!!! Thank you guys! I would recommend these folks anytime! Very quiet and relaxing. I like how they utilize walking on back makes for a deeper massage!
I've been going here for three years and every therapist who has worked on me is knowledgeable and skilled. I love that it's super easy to book online. Ashiatsu and hand massage (with or without hot stones) all feel amazing. I hold muscular tension from work on my neck and shoulders and the massage really helps relieve the tense muscles. They're very good about making sure the pressure is appropriate. The music (love the whale sounds) and essential oils are very relaxing--you pretty much forget you're in the CBD.
Donna at NOLA BLISS MASSAGE was AMAZING!!! Perhaps the best massage I have ever had!! I highly recommend NOLA BLISS. Their staff were polite and facility clean and easy to find.
Most effective deep tissue massage of my life! Get the ashiatsu and don't look back. Thanks Nola Bliss!!!
I'm so happy I was able to get a couples massage appointment here during our short stay in New Orleans. We had the 90 minutes couples massage ($130pp) and it was so enjoyable that I am trying to figure out if we can go again before we leave in 2 days. My husband had Val for a Swedish massage and I had Odessa for a deep tissue. When we arrived we filled out a short questionnaire and our masseuses asked about pressure and areas of concentration. Odessa was spot on! I haven't been that relaxed or had that good of a massage in a long time. I highly recommend Nolita Bliss!
NOLA Bliss Massage
- The scheduling staff was responsive, contacted me back within 4 minutes!
- The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable
- Treatment rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable
- AMAZING MASSAGE
- Love the Himalayan salt stones.
- The staff didn't buzz me in, I buzzed multiple times and there wasn't any answer. I waited at the door about to call but staff from one of the other businesses was walking a customer out and let me in.
- Be prepared to walk three flights of stairs, this didn't really bother me but I know it could be an issue for some people.
This was my first Ashiatsu Massage and it was really great!
I was in NOLA for work and had a free afternoon, I saw that some people said they were able to schedule same day treatments so I messaged them through Yelp and they had two slots available! I called to set the appointment and they need a credit card to hold the appointment.
When you arrive you have to be buzzed in, and since the elevator is broken you have to walk up three flights of stairs.
I was immediately greeted by the staff and asked to take a seat. Then my massage therapist came by a few moment later and brought me into the treatment room. I was given an information form to complete and left alone while I completed it. After the therapist came back, reviewed my paper and we proceeded to discuss the session. She explained the order and each step of the massage. I had been having a lot of neck, shoulder, and upper back pain so I explained that to the message therapist and she really focused in that area. As someone who doesn't get massages often and since this was a new experience it was nice that everything was explained upfront. I was left in the room to get undressed and under the covers, the headrest wasn't quite where I needed it, so it was adjusted for me. Then the fun started. Throughout I was asked if the the pressure was okay and if the stones temperature was okay. It was nice to be asked and a few times I did ask for a little lighter pressure and the therapist was able to adjust easily.
I got the 90 minute Hot Stone Ashiatsu Massage, I'm sure the massage alone would have been great but the hot stones were amazing, certainly worth the extra $15.
That night I still felt really tense in my shoulders and neck, so I thought maybe she just got as much out as she could and I'm just really stressed, but the next day I felt like a whole new person! All the pain and tension is gone and I couldn't be more excited!!! I feel so good and you can too!!!
Such a great massage, 100% recommend in booking this place. It was incredibly close to our hotel too. It seems like the elevator is taking a while to get repaired, but we didn't mind the 3 flights of stairs. It's a very nice, quiet and soothing studio. Bathroom was very clean. We did a 60 minutes couples massage and it was a life changing experience. Our ladies were really great and my boyfriend was incredibly impressed with how he felt afterwards. Wish I remembered the names of the ladies who did our massages because both were very professional and fantastic. Both ladies provided us with great feedback after our massage and honestly, we just want to book another massage already. Feeling so relaxed right now and we'll definitely be back.
An amazing massage parlor. Great relaxing ambience and a kind and attentive staff. Odessa was my massage therapist and she was great at focusing on my problem areas and an all around joy to interact with. The massages are very reasonably priced. Hard to beat a full body deep tissue at 95 for an hour. A great way to end your trip if you're on vacation like I was. Definitely would go back.
Great massage. Had a couples massage and thought I booked 2 ashiatsu massages. Apparently, we only got one and thought it was weird. Small place, nice people.
Amazing couples massage today! Sara gave me one of the best massages I've had in a while. The room and atmosphere was so serene. 10/10 would recommend. We will return!
Came to Nola Bliss while having a "treat yo self" moment on vacation. Megan was my massage therapist and she was the best!
The price was right, plus you can add hot Himalayan salt stones for only 15 bucks more. Well worth it in my opinion.
The building itself is a little funky to get to and get up but the massage makes it so worth it.
Beautiful place took the stairs up since the elevators are broken but super easy to book on a last-minute and super accommodating and hospitable setting and skills what can I say massage skills tension is gone and I feel great so glad I stopped by
I booked the massage for my wife and I as a couples massage. My wife said it was the best massage she ever had!
I've had many massages in the past, but this one had to be the best hands down. I told my massage therapist, Betty, that I wanted her to focus on my upper back and she did not disappoint! In the past, I've had the massages where I felt like they were just slipping and sliding over my muscles, but Betty really targeted my problem areas and worked out my knots. I felt like she was really in tune with my body and took the time to really work out the areas that felt tense. In the end, I felt so relaxed and satisfied! I definitely recommend this place. They seem to have highly trained professionals who know what they're doing.
My wife and I were looking for a good massage to end our trip to New Orleans. We found Nola Bliss Massage through Yelp and TBH I was a bit skeptical of
all the good reviews, and the pictures did not look too great. The pictures don't do this place justice. I was working with Jen who did an awesome job asking questions and working the right spots. This was definitely one of my best massages ever!!! When I am back in New Orleans I will definitely be coming back to visit Jen at Nola Bliss. My wife worked with Betty, and she agreed that her massage was on another level even though she slept through some of her massage.
Nola Bliss is an awesome way to end your trip after all the craziness on Bourbon St. I still feel soooooo relaxed.
Odessa did such a great job. Walked in with extremely limiting movement in lower back and knee. Explained the issues as she adressed them amazingly in just a 60min session. Haven't felt this good in several days! Highly recommend and totally worth the stairs to the third floor until their elevator is back in action :)
They pushed the "walk on the back foot massage" thing too much. I declined each time. What I got was a unique, old fashioned "two hand" massage -- and it was GREAT! Ask for Meagan!
Fantastic! My masseuse did things to stretch me out that I have never experienced before. The price is steep but absolutely worth it. If I lived locally then I would go back. Good work Nola Bliss!
Booked a couples massage and couldn't have been happier. My husband and I were visiting NOLA for his birthday and spoiled ourselves with a massage. I checked out a few places online and this place has the best prices. We both loved our massages! The location is great, and for those who have taken stars off because of the location, need to get a reality check. This place is near downtown, we walked from our hotel in CBD and is 1 block away from Old 77 Hotel so let's not freak out about it being somewhere sketchy or that you need to call up to get let in.
I had a wonderful experience at Nola Bliss. I was called back right away and accommodated the same day. Valerie gave me one of the most wonderful massages I've ever had! She was phenomenal. The studio was clean and cute. And the pricing was very reasonable. When back in New Orleans I'll definitely be returning!
Was able to get a last minute appointment on a Sunday afternoon. Very grateful for being given an appointment as I was in a lot of pain. One of the best massages I have ever had. Would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a great massage.
I'm not one to leave reviews.But in this case,NOLA Bliss Massage LLC definitely deserves a positive review for their commitment to extraordinary customer service. When I call in, no matter who I speak with, they are always courtesy and friendly. They go out of their way to make sure my questions are answered. But what I love most is just how they make me feel. They really make me feel important, that my business means something and is special to them. There aren't many companies out there that do this anymore, and I highly recommend them to my friends and family.
NOLA Bliss is amazing from beginning to end. I travel to New Orleans for a week each year. This is the second time I've had the pleasure of experiencing NOLA Bliss. Everything was perfect from booking to close out. This time I had been dealing with nagging lower back pain for weeks. After 90 min with Odessa I had relief that has lasted my entire trip and the return home. Thank you!! I can't recommend them enough!!
Easy to book, fair rates, the basics out of the way professionally. That's appreciated when you're on vacation.
Lily was the professional available for the time we needed. She's simply a wonderful masseuse. It also is clear, she is a person full of love.
Her energy was so positive. Her technique very relaxing. Over the years we've had a lot of massage. This massage was one of my all time favorites. Just wish we lived closer.
By far the most intense deep tissue massage I've ever gotten. Most of the time I'm telling them they can push harder, push harder. Cute place too!
My friend and I found NOLA Bliss online while here from out of town so, despite good reviews. we were managing our expectations. We had two hours so lots of time to judge. Best massages we ever had. I've had quite a few and this was the best. Why? They knew how the muscles and body work. Go.
Val was amazing!!! I HIGHLY recommend Val and Nola Bliss Massage for your next massage, ask for Val (Valery). A visit to Nola Bliss Massage is a must!
I am an athlete and constant in search for the wow effect! Hands down ...this was by far the best massage I have experienced! I got to admit, I was a bit sceptic when my brother mention getting one. I am so glad I did. Thank you so much for the best experience! You WOW'd me! Thank you
This is a really cute place. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because of the way you have to enter the building. If you're not familiar with the area I can seem a bit sketchy, although it really is not! You have to go to the call box and send a signal upstairs they verify your name and your appointment time and buzz you in. It is really clean, the staff is knowledgeable and efficient. I will say the A shiatsu technique is probably not one that I would revisit however they do a regular body massages as well. There are also some great restaurants nearby. Be sure to give it a try if you're in the area!
I highly recommend the Ashiatsu type of Massage. I've had traditional deep tissue massages before. But after having that type of massage it was totally different and felt rejuvenating highly recommend this place. The parking situation is pay to park so if you live locally and can walk I recommend doing so or taking a cheap uber.
Carolyn gave me my first prenatal massage and it was better than I could've anticipated! It was so relaxing & really a must try if you're a sore pregnant mama.
The location was easy to find, clean, and quiet. I thought the price was fair for a 90 min massage, much less expensive than a session at a hotel!
I had much needed bodywork so I booked a massage with Betsy. I am a massage therapist and have had tons of massages over the years. Betsy gave one of the best massages I have ever had! By the time I left, my shoulder pain was gone and I was in such a state of bliss, something I have not experienced in a long time. I highly recommend her!
Incredible experience. Professional and knowledgeable. I will be back. I left better than when I arrived. Thank you.
Tried the deep tissue foot massage thing they have (forgot the actual name of it) and it was amazing. I never new you could even massage like that with your feet. Very clean and professional and very nice.
Can't not say enough great things abnout this spa been going here now for 2 mths and all the therapist have been prof. And amazing.
Was in town for vacation and of course looked at yelp to find a message. What an excellent experience, never had anything like this before. The ability to apply pressure with their feet was awesome.
If you never experienced an Ashiatsu Massage then your missing out of a life changing experience. Having had numerous deep tissue and acupuncture this by far provided me with the best relief and I left feeling rejuvenated! Sarah was amazing!
Great massage, two hour. Very professional and responsive to requests. Pricing is commensurate with the quality of the massage received.
I was walking around New Orleans one day and the next, i woke up with immense sciatica pain. i immediately starting yelping massages in the local area and found this place. i sent a message through yelp with my phone number and immediately got a call back. I booked a 90 minute deep tissue/ashiatsu and walked the 6 blocks to get there. (they took my credit card info over the phone to hold my spot). turns out they had availability in an hour and half from the time i called. i got buzzed in and went up the elevator. i met Val, from France and she spent the next 90 minutes giving me a precise deep tissue massage on my calves and sciatica. she healed me. i felt so much like melted butter on her table i almost couldn't flip over. Highly recommended for deep tissue. I feel so blessed to have found someone on the first try. After having 3 C-sections over the years, i don't really have a core anymore so i know i will be back! God bless this place! (ps i'm using my daughters phone and for some reason she disabled the capitalization feature.)
My husband and I love getting massages whenever we are traveling. Betsy is by FAR the best massage therapist I have ever had. I have had chronic mid back pain for as long as I can remember. I feel like she 100% made my back pain disappear. The ladies will speak with you before your massage and make sure you have the best experience ever
Wonderful Massage and Great Location!!! Sarah was excellent... She was very professional and delivered a very relaxing/enjoyable massage. It was my first Ashiatsu Massage, and I would highly recommend it. Staff was excellent as well...
I just had a massage with Val and I these reviews are not lying. This was hands down the best massage I have EVER gotten. I have had sciatic pain in my leg for almost a year. Been trying everything- Acupuncture, herbs, massage. And then BOOM Val just stepped the game up. I walked out of there pain free for the first time in months.
Huge thank you Val and Nola Bliss!
Wonderful, relaxing experience. We were scheduled relatively last minute (same afternoon) and everything was perfect.
Carolyn and Michelle were awesome! My husband and I had a couples massage. What a way to spend a HOT NOLA day. Highly recommend NOLA Bliss. We will definitely visit again on a future trip to New Orleans.
I booked a 60 minute couples massage session for me and my boyfriend as a birthday gift for my boyfriend's birthday! we had such an AMAZING experience. This was our first time ever getting massages so we didn't know what to expect but the entire experience was so pleasant. The massage beds are super comfortable and warm and cozy, the music playing in the room is extremely soothing and our amazing therapists Andrea and Lilly did a fantastic job. I had Lilly and she relieved so much tension in my back and feet that I didn't even know that I had! I left there feeling extremely light weighted, relaxed and refreshed. Will be coming back and recommending this to everybody! Thank you guys for the great experience :)
Well what can I say ?? Being a ex - professional wrestler for over 25 years and having had bouts all over the world , you can imagine what my body has been through. Chronic back pain , constant traveling , different hotel beds , my back is constantly giving me pain so bad that some nights I cannot get a good sleep . Having spent hundreds if not thousands in the past on various treatments ranging from acupuncture, Chinese / Thai , massage , physiotherapy, and getting no comfor...
Me and wife did 90mins couples massage. We both enjoyed our therapist. After 2 full days of enjoying the Essences Festival we needed a refresher so we could enjoy day 3. This was a great reset. Very professional and ready to serve!
Booked a couples massage on the fly because my BF’s neck had been killing him since we flew into NOLA yesterday. He had an ashiatsu barefoot/hot stone combo and I had a Swedish/hot stone combo. Fantastic!!! Also, great price point for the 90 minute services received. Far less than I paid at home in Michigan last week. Highly recommend.
Great Service! Had 2 services one with Val and one with Lily. Both took time to review individual needs so they could provide the best service. Did not want either one to end. They both reviewed stretching after each session for home care.
Nirvana! My first Ashiatsu massage and it was beyond incredible! My chronic neck pain went away and I was able to sleep at night again. I am telling you this place is a hidden treasure and great location! I had an amazing shampoo and blow-dry right next door on the same floor after my massage . My appointment had an hour window after my massage service but I had a great lunch in the area so it wasn't tragic. I say check it out if you haven't tried this place yet!
Valerie was my masseuse and she did a fantastic job! I have already recommended Nola bliss to friends!
We left feeling refreshed and very relaxed
We had a great 90 mom couples massage. It was very good. Odesa was my massage therapist and she did a great job. She has strong hands and deep a deep tissue massage. I will definelty be back. The reviews led us here and yelpers you didn't let us down.
I went with the traditional massage, and my boyfriend tried the The Ashiatsu Massage. My massage therapist talked to me beforehand to learn where I usually had issues, and she really focused on making sure that she spent adequate time on these areas. I wasn't feeling great when I walked in there that morning...but I felt absolutely amazing by the time that I left. The staff was very friendly overall.
When I originally tried to call to make an appointment, no one answered, but I immediately received a text message saying that I would receive a call back shortly. About 20 minutes later, someone did call me back and helped make my reservation. You can also book online if you prefer.
I'm not sure of the parking situation, as we just walked from our hotel. You will need to be buzzed into the building, but this is all communicated on their website and in your confirmation emails. You definitely need to book your massage in advance.
We both enjoyed our separate massages and highly recommend this location if you are looking to book a massage!
Best massage I’ve ever had!
this was the best massage i have ever had! And i have been getting massages at least twice a month for over 10 years.
Fabulous experience!! I called a few days into a week in NOLA on business. Easy online scheduling and good location. The massage therapist was wonderful. Professional and very attentive to my trouble spots. One of the best massages I've had. Will be back in my next trip.
I am always very pleased with the massages that I have received at Nola Bliss. Sara is great.
In town for a festival and felt the need for a reset after a busy winter and full weekend. This place had solid, legible reviews - an online booking function that was easy to navigate - and unique options on fairly short notice. I had never had the ashiatsu treatment before and although my personal provider was still very new, she was really able to get her heel into some deep pockets of muscle that needed that degree of treatment. The whole process was pretty frictionless and straightforward - well worth the slight price increase over the other options I was able to find relatively nearby. A well thought out biz plan - check out the juice bar a few blocks away afterwards to get a full circle experience!
Great for Ashiatsu Massage! If you haven't tried it, this is an awesome place to experience it.
Having given massage for 15+ years and received them throughout the world, I feel confident in stating NOLA Bliss Massage provides a top-tier experience. The space is professional, clean and tranquil. The couples room is generously sized and a dedicated use space.
Megan and Betsy were approachable, pleasant, and demonstrated a high level of skill and experience. They reviewed our health history and asked questions that enabled them to customize our massage sessions. My husband and I both had positive outcomes. We enjoyed our massages and realized muscle release, as well as, relaxation.
I am a triathlete in training and regularly have massages in Seattle where I live. Nola Bliss ranks among the very best. Highly recommended!
I've had plenty of massages before, but nothing compares to the quiet, mindful competence and professionalism that I experienced during my 90-minutes with Odessa. I feel like this is the first REAL massage I've ever had. I am sad that I'm moving away in a couple weeks and I've only just found this place. Come in with high expectations, and you will not be disappointed. 11/10, would definitely return / recommend to a friend.
I highly highly highly recommend this place!!! It was the best massage of my life!!! Don't skimp on the cheaper massages go to this place!!!
This place was great. Very professional and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend booking an appointment if you are looking for a massage.
One of the best massages I’ve ever had. Just book it, you won’t regret it! First class operation!
Loved it! It was amazing !!!! Easy to schedule and it was so needed!will be back here when In town from la! Loved the heart hot stones
Very nice place!!! I had a great massage with Tam. The space is comfortable and cozy but classy at the same time. If I ever come back to New Orleans I will definitely make this part of my activities. Loved it!
Sara is a gem!! She is so good at what she does!! Warm and welcoming from beginning to end! Best
Ashiatsu massage I've ever had!! Released tension in my neck and shoulders like no other massage ever had!! Went back to her for Atlas Balance.it was a wonderful experience. Can't wait for my next appointment!!
Great massage, just what I needed. Got me in short notice during a busy time.
Massage addressed everything I wanted worked on. Etc
I have been to NOLA Bliss a few times and every time is amazing. They're very accommodating and punctual in response time for appointment inquiries. The masseuses are very professional, knowledgeable, and create a very comfortable and relaxing experience. I'm big on cleanliness and NOLA bliss surpasses those expectations. Relaxing scents and warm ambiance also make the experience great. I definitely recommend Nola Bliss to anyone looking for an exceptional massage!
We scheduled a couple's massage during our vacation. We both suffer from back problems, and by the end of the hot stone massage we felt like new people! It was the best massage I have had in years! The staff was very skilled in multiple forms if massage, and they did a thorough intake evaluation to provide the best services tailored to our needs. The facilities were clean, calming and welcoming. We would definitely recommend NOLA Bliss
I booked NOLA Bliss for our massages while on vacation in NOLA based on the many reviews across various websites and we were not disappointed! We had 90-minute massages where I had Sarah with her fantastic massage using her feet and my husband had Odessa.
Sarah was fantastic and I'd follow her anywhere...the massage was firm, deep and thorough. I left feeling almost as if I had a Thai massage, I was so relaxed and worked over, in a good way.
My husband stated that Odessa gives a very nice massage but you might need to ask for a firmer touch if you are looking for a deep tissue massage.
My massage was absolutely perfect. The room was super comfy and my massage therapist knew exactly how to work on my problem areas. It was a wonderful experience and I will be back next year when I visit NOLA
This place was absolulty fantastic! Andrea was great, she was able to alieviate a long lasting knot in my shoulder! I look forward to my next session!
Nola Bliss provides the best massage experience I have ever had. The staff are highly skilled and professional. The environment is relaxing. The location is wonderful, very convenient to the French quarter and hotels
This place is Amazing. I Tried the Shiatsu and loved it. Megan fixed my shoulder pain instantly! I live out of town but if i didnt id be there every month!
I had a great hot stone massage yesterday! Val focused on points that really needed attention!! I'm looking forward to my next visit!!
Friendly service. Great massages. Conveniently located. Highly recommended by a local!... And we'll be back.
This was the best massage I've ever had (with John). I wish I lived in the area to visit regularly.
I got a 90 minute Prenatal Massage yesterday. So glad I treated myself ! Val was my therapist. I felt so much better after :) Thank you ! It's walking distance from the Convention Center in New Orleans :)
Reason for 4 stars: location and getting inside, don't come too early (I came 30 minutes before and was told to wait 15 more minutes, would be nice if they had a waiting area) and music was a little too loud during the massage, especially given the type of music it was, deep tones. It was beautiful music just too loud! I was too relaxed to speak up. Anyways !! The massage itself was worth it !
I especially loved how she asked me the name of my baby and included her in introduction and closing and thanking us both. That was sweet :)
Great therapists. Comfortable atmosphere. I will go back. Thanks!
Working as a nurse can be hard on my body but this two hour massage had me feeling like a new person! Andrea was kind and receptive to what I was looking for in terms of pressure and so on. The space itself was very clean and inviting. It smelled wonderful from the essential oils they use. The whole experience overall was fantastic and I will for sure be back. Looks like they have another regular customer now!
I got the ashiatsu massage and as a massage therapist myself having received hundreds of massages---this place is the shit! They know what they're doing, period. I'm here for vacation and might have to go back because if someone is that good with their feet imagine their hands. Wow--just wow. So sad I can't find a therapist like this where I live. If you like therapeutic massage this is the place to go!!
We came to Nola Bliss visiting New Orleans this past week, my boyfriend ran the marathon there so I wanted to get a massage for after. We got a couples massage and both said how our massages were wonderful. I got helpful feedback from my masseuse after about areas that are tight and need some stretching and massaging.
I would highly recommend checking out Nola Bliss if you're a local or visiting NOLA!
Nola Bliss Massage is a personal experience of tranquility and relaxation. The massage room is the perfect size and the ambiance was extremely relaxing. The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating to each clients unique needs. My fianc and I received a couples massage with hot Himalayan salt stones and it was fantastic! Very appreciative of the business and all it offers!
The massage was so relaxing, and the location was convenient from our hotel. Top notch service! The massage therapists do a great job asking how firm you want the massage, and the rooms are very comfortable.
We try to get a massage whenever we're on vacation and this trip got a gift certificate for a couples massage and it was a fantastic massage.
I would highly recommend fitting in a visit to NOLa Bliss if you are in town. You will not be disappointed!
I have been here before for massage but this time Megan provided the ashiatsu massage and it was transformational. I had a lot of pain and it melted away even with a deeper more powerful massage. I can't wait to go back.
This was my first time getting ashiatsu massage and it was fantastic I will be repeating
Andrea and Ingrid worked a couples massage for my boyfriend and I. The ladies are experts. The room was calm and comfortable. I am a massage therapist for 20 years. Couldnt have been more pleased. I live in St Pete, Florida, I hope to be able to come to NolaBliss again!
I had a great massage! Best in the City perhaps.
I found Nola Bliss on Yelp a few days before traveling to New Orleans from Chicago. I was able to book a 90-minute Ashiatsu Massage with Val (the massage therapist). I got great advice and guidance on the phone from Sarah (the owner), who was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Val herself was spectacular. It was my first experience with Ashiatsu and I received a fully invigorating, refreshing and yet relaxing treatment. Val was highly skilled and personable. All in all, I am a big fan and will definitely visit Nola Bliss again on my next trip to New Orleans!
On a whim my wife and I booked this place strictly off of Yelp reviews. Did not disappoint. Worked out the bad kinks in my back and I am feeling better now for the rest of my trip.
I had a massage here while on vacation. It was AMAZING! The facility is not necessarily spa like but it has a great feel to it and I loved it. Danielle gave me my massage and I can't say enough about
how much better I felt when I left and how much I enjoyed the whole experience. I will definitely go back every time I visit.
My partner Mike and I were visiting New Orleans and learned about Nola Bliss on the internet and read the great reviews. I have had many massages over the years and I can honestly say that John at Nola Bliss is a top notch therapist with amazing technique and intuition (both which are extremely important to the profession). My partner Mike received an Ashiatsu session from Andrea and he LOVED it. We will definitely return and highly recommend to anyone thinking about booking here. You won't regret it!
Sweet little place close to the casino. I got an amazing relaxation massage and Laura gently worked out my travel knots. My husband really enjoyed his massage as well. It was a nice afternoon break in the Big Easy.
After hours of research, I decided to take my fianc to NOLA bliss as a surprise. I'm so glad we did because this is definitely one of the best massages we've had! The best part is, the price is very reasonable! If anyone is interested, our amazing masseuses were Andrea and Valerie.
Very relaxing! Im here from Atlanta and this was my first stop.. 100% worth it. Definitely will come back. Thank you so much.
Mom and I got a couples massage. She said it was the best massage she's ever had, mine was great too. Great environment, great service, and great experience. Deff check it out!
Nola Bliss was great! They were able to fit me in last minute. My massage was just what I needed and requested! Wonderful deep tissue massage with a lot of interesting techniques I had never had before. John knew exactly where I was hurting and focused on those areas. He was very professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place!
Had a massage by Andrea for the first time and she was EXCELLENT. Felt like I could twirl my head around like Linda Blair in the Exorcist afterwards. Andrea has a definite gift for finding knots and working them out. What a great
I just had one of the best massages ever with Danielle. I get regular massages and this one is in the top 3 of my all-time favorites. She really knows her anatomy and her profession. She is a wonderful communicator and really made you feel taken care of. A therapeutic massage that was also relaxing and I walked away with some body work self care recommendations. Just what I needed! The other practitioners I encountered were friendly and welcoming and the space is lovely. I highly recommend. If I lived locally I would get regular massages with Danielle. Wonderful!
Called and got an appointment for an hour later. Unbelievable experience, got the barefoot massage. A first for me and would definitely recommend it. Exactly what I needed.
I just had the most amazing massage of my life. My therapist, Betsey, listen to all the issues that I have been having with tense muscles and focused on them to make me feel so much better. If massage therapists were doctors then she has the skill of a surgeon. I would recommend this place to all my friends, colleagues and clients. This is my second massage at Nola Bliss and I was super satisfied with both, having experience both the Ashiatsu and deep tissue.
Our visit was awesome! Really enjoyed it! Would recommend to anyone wanting to experience a good massage!
My husband and I booked a couples massage while we were in New Orleans early October 2017. Our therapists were John D and Betsy H and they were both incredible. When we return to New Orleans we would definitely book a massage with them again. Excellent!!
I had a wonderful experience at NOLA Bliss Massage. The booking experience online was easy and convenient. Best of all my massage therapist was a true master of her craft. I asked for medium pressure and it was just the right combination of relaxing strokes and intermittent deeper kneading to get the knots out. I will definitely come back the next time I'm in New Orleans!
I think the Ashiatsu massage was the best massage I've ever had! It really got into the deep tissue without being too sharp. Skylar really honed in on the knots in my back and neck and obliterated them. Amazing. Feeling great today!
Had a much needed theraputic massage with John Dominio 2x while in Nola July 10th through 17th 2017! he was a LIFE saver! thank you so much for such a great experience!!!
VERY VERY pleased!!! I felt awesome when I left! I would definitely visit again if I were local! It was a birthday present from my hubby!
Very friendly and helpful when I called by phone. Appointments are recommended and they were able to take me same day. Andrea was incredible and friendly. She was my massage therapist and made me feel comfortable. She immediately identified areas that needed work without me having to tell her. It was the best 90 minutes I could have asked for. Thank you NOLA Bliss. See you soon.
If you're an aficionado of ashiatsu as I am, you'll agree with me that Sara is a very skillful and professional ashiatsu therapist. If you're unfamiliar with ashiatsu but have never been satisfied with typical massages that don't go deeply enough into the muscles, then you owe it to yourself to try ashiatsu with Sara or her other ashiatsu therapists at Nola Bliss. For the initiated, ashiatsu is a technique that adapts traditional Asian massage to modern equipment, in that the...
Went for a couples massage with my husband. I loved the natural lighting and crisp set up of the place. Only downside is you have to pay for parking, but it's NOLA.
10!!! Andrea did a phenomenal job during my Ashiatsu massage. It was hands down the best and most therapeutic massage I have ever had and I have had prob At least 100
I am a frequent massage customer - at home (NY) & wherever I travel. I'm very particular. Nola Bliss is now on my favorites list. Ashiatsu massage is an incredible experience - and they do it QUITE WELL. Recommended without any reservations. I went twice during my NOLA stay & both practitioners were great.
BLISS is how you are going to feel when you visit this place. Andrea & Ingrid worked their magic hands on my Husband and I and we both have never experienced such immediate pain relief, after sleeping in a hotel bed, in long time. The beautiful space and friendly professional attitude just added to our wonderful experience. Highly recommend and will be back when we're in town again. Next time we're trying the ashiatsu massage. Can't wait until we come back.
I've had ashiatsu many times before, and always try to schedule a session when I travel. The downtown location was convenient to the convention center where my conference was being held. I have a long history of lower back pain, and recent left arm and shoulder pain from multiple nerve compressions. So I decided to give Nola Bliss a try. I admit I was initially a bit put off by the old building on a side street - but then I remembered, this is New Orleans! Sara was very welcoming and friendly. She really seemed to listen to all my problems, and followed my prompts during the massage itself. I'm used to living with lots of stress, and it's hard for me to completely relax, but Sara's manner soon put me at ease. She seemed to know exactly which areas to focus on, as well as when to be gentle and when to be firm.
If you've never had ashiatsu before, there's nothing better for deep muscle pain. The very firm pressure may take some getting used to for some, but I've always enjoyed it and can't imagine going back to Swedish-style massage.
So treat yourself and check out Nola Bliss the next time you're in the Big Easy!
They were very professional and provided a relaxing environment and excellent service.
My husband and I went for a couple's massage today and left feeling totally relaxed. The massage studio is on the top floor of this older building and has so much character. Very charming. The massage therapists were great and allowed us to totally relax. They left it up to us to tell them if we needed more or less pressure. They checked in with us once as we were turning over. At the end my therapist mentioned that I have a lot of muscle tension and she's totally right. I had more tension than I thought. I am so glad that I got a massage and will not let so much time go before my next one. I only wish we lived closer so I could come back here. Ps. I am a massage therapist myself and I highly recommend!
I opted for the 60 minute shiatsu massage, and let me tell you - it's a game changer. Play by play breakdown:
Minutes 1-3: Okay, very similar to a standard massage.
Minute 4: Aaaand that's a foot.
Minute 5: No, not dreaming - it's still a foot.
Minute 6: Does this feel good?
Minute 7: This is incredible.
Minute 8: I think I feel my chi floating above my body.
Minute 9: Yeah, this is an out of body experience.
Minute 10: BRB, I'm meditating on a cliff in the Himalayas.
Minute 40: I'm back, it's only been 40 minutes? Incredible!
Minute 41: I didn't realize hamstrings could have knots, and furthermore that they could be massaged out.
Minute 60: I'll never be the same. Please don't leave.
If you're on the fence about shiatsu, hop over it now. Words can only explain so much, but the pressure is very even due to the techniques used. I get massages once per week and I've never had a massage that left me feeling perfect - 40% relaxed, 40% rejuvenated, and 20% inspired that it was still possible for my body to feel so great! I've read the old reviews, and I can confirm that NOLA Bliss Massage is no longer operated out of a private residence, it's in an office.
Too relaxed to review...crazy good. I got the massage they do with feet. Amazing massage, fair pricing, a straight up place, clean. Just do it!
Scheduled a last minute couples massage and thank goodness we did! John and Ingrid were wonderful. John was very skilled at giving me the deep tissue/neuromuscular massage I needed for all of my soreness. He found every point of tension with little direction and worked magic! Ingrid performed a relaxing massage on my husband who left asking if we can "go back tomorrow". Very skilled masseuses and great service overall.
Comfortable, sirene spa... Skyler was superb with her soothing massage and kept great pressure throughout session. Thank you, sg
Initially, I sought out this practice because I had a... craving to try Ashiatsu massage. (I guess it was a fantasy experience--something luxurious I had seen in the movies.) From my first appointment with Sara (years ago) to my most recent (just a week ago), NOLA Bliss has maintained my highest regard.
My experiences with NOLA Bliss massage therapists have always alleviated stress-related tension and pain (my main complaints). Plus, after being worked on by an intuitive and well-trained therapist, I leave with a new sense of my internal physicality.
I'm a dedicated patron of massage. I've been to massage therapists all over the greater New Orleans area. Often I select an appointment that's close by my current workplace or simply available on short notice. Because of this, I have sampled many massage practices from Belle Chasse to Metairie.
In my opinion, NOLA Bliss is second to none. The price is right. The staff is truly expert. And this downtown location is beautiful and easy to access.
I am a therapist in another state, and came to Nola with a sore hip that's been acting up for over a month. I had a busy and active week on my agenda so i booked an appointment with John Dominio first thing!
He really helped get to some deep issues and i know that seeing him before my conference took off allowed me to be present and more active with it.
I again seen him before i headed out again to continue to let my leg and hip release and heal from all the workouts and walking i did that week.
Thank You Nola Bliss for hiring such amazing therapeutic LMT!
If i'm ever passing through again you know i'll be back!
EXCELLENT and well needed after walking around town for a few days. John, my message therapist, had the right touch to help smooth out my tight neck and back muscles. I called for a last minute appointment and they were able to get me in promptly. It's right by the hotel we're staying at, The Staybride Hotel. Not a lot of fluff, but very clean and affordable compared to the other spas in the neighborhood.
Andrea was a very skilled massage therapist. She tailored the massage to my needs and i was very relaxed afterwards. Good use of essential oils.
omg....... my new favorite massage parlor. my therapist, Skylar, was awesome and very experienced! i felt like a new person after my massage. i will definitely recommend nola bliss!
One of the best deep tissue massages, I've had. Thank you for working me in on short notice.
I had a great and strong massage, highly recommended. The staff is friendly and professional. The online booking was very simple and convenient.
Would definitely go again.
NOLA Bliss Massage
I have had professional body-work performed on and off for over 30 years all over the country and easily rank NOLA Bliss in my top 4 all-time. I have worked directly with the owner, Sara, (a lot) and also with two of her other therapists and they were all very good, attentive, polite, discrete and comforting. Each massage was its own special treat.
The facilities are excellent in being very quiet, comfortable and climate controlled. The music and splashing water are hypnotic. The tables are all first rate and the pricing is very reasonable, even by New Orleans' standards. People from larger cities will be very pleasantly surprised.
The most important factor for me in a good massage is the therapists use of some mysterious kind of intuition rather than mindless or random massaging. A really good masseuse seems to "know" or quickly figure out where the problems are and spends extra time on each of them. That is what sets a good or great massage apart for me from the routine one you can get most anywhere. And Sara is one of the best ever but also seems to be very selective in her hiring because her staff reflects those same qualities.
I highly recommend NBM to anyone looking for quality body work. You will not be disappointed.
New Orleans, LA
I've had massages all around the world, it's how I keep going. McKinsey provided a 90 min work of Art. She has the right touch and understands muscles and knots. I was running on empty upon arrival but walking out I felt like I had just been refueled.
Peter was a great, strong masseuse. Worked and worked through this massive tight knot I had on my back. I finally feel human again!
Great massage! I was so tight from working on my computer for an intense 2 month course. And Skylar worked all of the tightness out of my neck, lower back and calves. Thank you!
Great service, nice folks. Would give five stars for service and people. But, could be updated and cleaner.
I cannot even express in words how amazing the Ashiatsu session was. All I have to say is the neck and shoulder and pain that I suffered from for over a year is gone! I actually had a full nights sleep. I will definitely be back at least on a schedule. The spa is very beautiful, you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in!
Sara was great, I had never had ashiatus massage and I'm so glad my first experience was with her! Left feeling very relaxed and muscle soreness gone. I bought a gift certificate for a friend and hope he enjoys it as much as I did!
this was so great. i rarely get a massage and this was my first ashiatsu but second with hot stones. the best part was the shoulder work she did on me which is where i keep most of my tension. i have a high heat tolerance but i did have to mention them being too hot once. i don't put that on her, it is a hot stone after all. overall, i had a lovely experience.
My wife and I both recently went here and had wonderful experiences. It was the first ashiatsu experience for both of us and we would definitely do it again. Sara was exceptionally professional, welcoming, answered all questions, and did fantastic work. If you've never had ashiatsu before, here's what was so eye-opening for this first timer: A) the foot and legs are stronger and allow the masseuse to give an uncommonly deep and thorough massage; B) there were techniques Sara used related to the spine, shoulder blades (and other areas) that were brand new to us and as such worked out some tensions and tightness that we didn't even know existed; and C) if you're at all nervous about being massaged by foot, generally speaking you can't really tell the difference by touch except that you know hands/arms can't supply the kind of consistent pressure legs and feet can. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and, apparently, this is the only place in New Orleans you can have it. Strongly recommend.
So relaxing I almost fell asleep on the table.
Great cure-all for the walking, dancing and drinking to close out Jazzfest.
If you are looking for deep tissue massage this is the place! I travel a lot for a living and made me feel like a new person. Next time I am in town I will be going back.
I was skeptical at first about receiving an Ashiatsu massage after an injury. Sara's work was so soothing and the pressure was perfect. She is intuitive to your body's needs. Sara was very helpful and started the healing process. I am so grateful I found her and highly recommend her massage services to anyone who wants to experience the most tranquil, pain alleviating and enjoyable 60, 90 or 120 minutes of your day.
My company booked Nola Bliss Massage for a party we had over the course of two days and I cannot say enough good things about Sara and her team. We had Nola Bliss Massage at our rented mansion giving out massages for two days and I heard nothing but great things from my coworkers and our guests.
Sara and her fellow therapist were very polite, friendly, and professional. They gave terrific massages and were very easy to work with through the whole booking process. I would absolutely recommend Nola Bliss Massage to anyone in New Orleans looking for a wonderful and relaxing time.
When I decided to try one of the 15-minute chair massages that Skyler Daniels was selling at a New Orleans Whole Foods Market, she had no clue that I had just come from a very disappointing (and expensive) full-body massage experience. I sat in her chair and immediately groaned with relief and delight, at her very first touch to the neck muscles. Her ability and commitment (KEY) to listen to the body, choosing both a pressure and speed for her movements left me wanting to fall asleep in the chair, right there in the grocery store. Needless to say, I asked right away if she did full-body treatments, as well--which led me to NOLA Bliss.
At the next appointment, Skyler spread the "chair" experience to my entire body and mind. My eyes popped out when I learned that she only recently finished her internship with NOLA Bliss. I can only imagine how the trainers are, if the interns are this awesome.
She was punctual, cordial, efficient, responsive, accommodating, and EFFECTIVE. Get in there, and see NOLA bliss. You will be VERY glad--both in mind and body!
100% Amazing! This is literally the only place I go for massage! Sara is so delightful and always gets back to me within seconds for scheduling a same day appointment! Since my career is physically demanding, she is the only person who can work out tightness and deep knots. With her using her feet she can cover more surface area and keep consistent pressure! Great massage! Great woman! Check her out and you'll be amazed!

Big thanks for working out everything. Best wish for the future. 100% satisfied : ) Thanks
Sara is a miracle worker. I've been to her several time and every time, I'm amazed at her understanding of the body. She seems to know just where to focus her attention with very little feedback from me. Today I went to her because I'm 7.5 months preggo and have bene suffering from terrible sciatica. She made such an impact in just an hour! Feels so much better.
My first time with this technique and Sarah was fantastic. She accommodated my very early arrival, being a visitor to the city I had allowed too much time to walk there. I feel great after the massage and thought it was fabulous value. I wish I lived locally and could visit frequently. I highly recommend this business to visitors and locals alike!
My wife and I came to New Orleans to visit her brother who is stationed here in the Navy. After landing we grabbed some breakfast and decided what a better way of starting our weekend than a good massage. We found Sera at Nola Bliss through Yelp and gave her a call. As a business owner myself, I was impressed with her friendly attitude and prompt service. My wife and I both received massages back to back and offered a wide variety of different massages. We both decided on a newer method that she had studied in which the name escapes us, however she used bars attached to the ceiling and she used her feet. It was AMAZING! she asks politely what areas it was that we wanted her to focus on and she went to work. The atmosphere was calm and clean. Two Thumbs up. Highly recommended. Give her a call. She mentioned that with notice she offers couples massages with two theripist.
Everything about this massage was amazing - from the comfortable and cozy setting to Sara. I have had a long history of chronic back and shoulder pain. About to embark on a long trip, I called on Sara to work out the kinks before taking off. The trademark of Nola Bliss is Ashiatsu massage, and having long heard of the benefits of this type of massage, I was fascinated by the sensation of balance, movement, and controlled energy of someone barefoot on my back. That is Ashiatsu and that is Nola Bliss. There is not better massage and there is no other place in New Orleans to experience it than at Nola Bliss.

Boots may be for walking but Sara's feet are made for massaging! Today I had my first experience with Ashiatsu and I have to say that it was the best massage I've ever had. Sara is professional and amiable. She made me feel totally at ease with the procedure by explaining it ahead of time as well as telling me exactly what she was doing as she went along. Ashiatsu is a massage technique where the masseuse uses her feet to achieve a more intense massage experience. It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to make my next appointment. If you haven't tried ashiatsu, call Nola Bliss and make an appointment. You will not regret it. Sara's feet are magical so let her perform a little magic on you!
Sara is an exemplary therapist. I came in with upper back pain as well as pain in my hips and the deep tissue work she was able to perform using her feet was far more effective than many arm-based massages I had had previously. I'm also pretty intrigued with the Atlas Balancing that she now offers and plan to book my next session with her for that.
How I felt after the Atlas Balancing
It was amazing. The first thing I noticed was more range of motion in my neck, next was a feeling of peace within myself. It felt all was ok no matter what! The feeling of peace has not left since the adjustment and it is wonderful. With so much uproar in people's lives it is truly a blessing to be able to stay calm and centered without any effort. It is just happening!
Grateful for this special treatment
I am so grateful to have Sara as an Atlas Balancer here in New Orleans. I feel a greater depth of peace and positive energy flow in my body, and know that the effects of this treatment will only continue to deepen. Getting the Atlas Balance treatment was a very positive step towards holistic wellbeing in my life!
Amazing! Well worth it!
Sara does such an amazing job with her feet. Though she can tailor pressure to however you like it, if you like deep pressure without pain, this is the massage for you. Her prices are reasonable and the relaxation is 100% worth it. Loved it so much I'm going to try to find an ashiatsu practitioner back home in Austin.

Sara has something very special! The techniques she used worked out knots that traditional massages aren't able to come close to helping. She knows her craft, and she has an uncanny ability to find areas of tension and tenderness that you don't even know exist! I left my massage on Cloud 9, and it's been a feeling that's carried with me for the past couple of days. I've already scheduled my...
Great experience! Needed someone to workout my knots in lower and upper back. Never had a massage this deep before. Highly recommended! Thanks Sara!
This was my first ashiatsu massage; and it was an amazing experience! My entire body was aching and sore from playing flag football, so I decided to try out Sara's technique to help loosen up before running a 5K in a few days. I have had other massages before from various places; but hands down, this was the best experience. Although my tender muscles screamed under some of the pressures, it was definitely worth it as I felt much better afterwards. It was also more relaxing than one would expect for this sort of massage. But the up side is that Sara was able to apply deeper pressure than a traditional masseuse. So if you like deep pressure massage, you should give Sara a try.
I am an active adult male tennis league player and have been looking for a massage solution that would help with large muscle recovery and I found Sara, a specialist in Ashiatsu massage. This technique involves the masseuse using their feet and gravity while holding on to ceiling bars to accomplish deep tissue massage. I found Sara to be highly knowledgeable and well versed in this technique. She also offers good value for the time since it his her own studio and she is seeking new clients having been open for 5 months. She has a studio in a decent neighborhood region near downtown and the FQ. Give her a call and see what she can do for you.
Amazing! If you like deep tissue massage, you'll love this. My neck and back thank Sara!
Great massage. Some people have a natural instinct to be a massage therapist and Sara is one of them. She is professional every step (pun intended) of the way through the massage. I've been receiving massages for 20 years and had never tried ashiatsu. I run a lot and over time my back and neck will tighten up. Ashiatsu was perfect for my muscles and Sara's technique was flawless. Do yourself a favor and book an hour massage with NOLA Bliss.
I just had my second massage with Sara and I am hooked! I just needed some "maintenance" work and it was great! It flowed well and was just amazing. One of her great strengths is her consistency! She quickly learns your troubled spots and how best to relax the muscle and get the knots out. I returned home with increased spunk in my step! Thank you!
Sara gave me a great deep tissue massage. She really paid attention to my specific needs. I was in town for a convention and her space is a nice walk through the French Quarter. I recommend her strongly.
Sara is an amazing masseuse. I had never had ashiatsu before, but after severely pulling just about every muscle in my lumbar spine/pelvis after a set of too heavy deadlifts and squats, I knew that something drastic needed to be done. It makes perfect sense that using gravity and the stronger muscles of the legs and feet a masseuse could get much deeper into the muscle to release the tension, and this is definitely the case.*
She is professional, nice, and very reasonable with rates. If you have any kind of athletic pulls or strains, or low back pain from sitting, don't hesitate to trust your muscles to her, she is truly 5 star.
*She does other thinks as well mind you, like hot stone and other less deep tissue types, but I only have experience with the deep tissue stuff.
