I feel I cannot fully express how amazing my experience was today. My husband and I happened to be in Calgary and experienced Mama Massage for the... first time. Wow...we are still talking about the customer service we received from all of the staff. You can tell they truly love their work and their environment. Nowadays, you rarely see that. I breath of fresh air really. As for the massage itself; was it education or talent? Top notch! Well done Mama Massage, can't wait for another trip to Calgary.read more

Always a smooth experience. The reception staff are prepared and professional before and after the treatment. Sonia is fantastic. I've had many... treatments, all for relaxation. Each time, Sonia's technique helps me 'drift away'. She uses firm pressure (because it was requested), but could likely adapt to suit. Will keep going back... thanks, Sonia!read more

Loved my experience here. I had Vickie do my prenatal massage. Everything was perfect from pressure to her knowing about my due date etc. They... obviously read your intake form and proceed accordingly.They also have child minding! Do if you have your little, bring him/ her along and still enjoy your massage.100% will be back.read more

I have been with Dr. Baldwin for over 10 years for health and she is a big part of our "Baby medical team".Often when I am not able to get into my... regular location I go to her other locations. This is my first time at Mama Massage- WOW! It was worth the 25 minute drive to this amazing location. Great front desk people, easy to find parking, lovely reception area, COVID procedures well in place and as always a fabulous acupuncture treatment (this time addressed some 3rd trimester concerns).Looking forward to trying out this location when restrictions ease to allow child minding services for our toddler.read more

I heard about this a week ago and thought it was an amazing idea for busy parents. Today I had my first appointment, it will not be my last.
From... the moment I walked up to the door with my 2 year old daughter I was greeted with a friendly face. The owner even opened the main door for me. Introduced us to the Tot/Child area and welcomed my daughter into a fun cheerful child minding area.
I was seated in a relaxing waiting area with soothing music and a water feature. My RMT introduced herself and brought me back to a massage room that was relaxing and also had soothing music playing. The massage was great. I could relax knowing my daughter was having fun doing crafts and dancing around with the staff. She loved the child sized sinks in the room. She was happy when we left and I was happy to get some "Mommy" time. I will be back for sure.

I have been a couple of times now and is a very nice place if you are looking to get a massage. I love this concept and can't wait for the tot-spot... to open again so I can bring my little one back!

My first visit today was a great experience. What a fantastic concept. Kids play while mom relaxes. The massage therapist I had today (Elaine) was so... great. Very friendly and made me feel totally relaxed and comfortable. My children raved about the tot spot and Ashley was phenomenal with my kiddos. The only thing I have to complain about is the distance, I really think a deep southeast location would do very well! Hopefully it’s something that can be considered as I would love to make monthly mama massages a thing in my life. However, I will be back to this location for now! Thanks again team.read more

Had such a wonderful experience today that I needed to let everyone know about Mama! I have been coming to Mama Massage for many years now and cannot... speak more highly of a massage therapy company. They truly seem to care about each and every one of their clients. I have tried out so many of their massage therapists over the last 5 years and they each bring something unique and wonderful to the table. The reception staff are very friendly, professional, and helpful! I always bribe my kids with a visit to their favourite play place and am so thankful for the wonderful caregivers that look after my girls while I get to relax.P.S. I love the new location in West Hills and we can't wait to see how amazing the permanent location turns out! My kiddos are counting down the days until they play in the tot spot again.read more

Well, lets just say winning the 1000th customer free massage was already awesome as is, I had an amazing massage!! Staffs are super friendly. I... wish this place had opened sooner when my kids were little, but no matter, its still a great place to go to even without kids. The place is very clean and relaxing. I came back again for another massage and it was so good that I woke myself from snoring...lol. I ran into the owner (Craig) a few times now and he still remembers my name...how great is that! Keep up the fantastic work Mama Massage!!read more
