Basic facial I had basic facial yesterday and it was awesome. It was one of the best facials I have every had. Tristin took her time and food a great job!
Keith S
Fantastic I scheduled several weeks of massage therapy with Tristin at Akua to get ready for a heli-skiing trip I had planned for March. Tristin's technique and in depth knowledge are incredible. She did an amazing job of getting me ready for my trip. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best.
Susan L
60 minute massage She knows where my trouble spots are and how to get the knots out. Feels wonderful when I am done!
mary jo w
Tristin "rocks"! No one has ever given me a massage close to tristin's. She the best!
Susan P
Wonderful Purchased a facial thru Groupon for the 1st one. Went back for a 2nd one. Tristin is really wonderful. She will answer any questions you have about what she finds and recommends how to help it. And you walk out with baby soft skin.
Debra O
Excellent Treatment I had a microdermabrasion and LED treatment facial and can only say totally positive remarks about the experience. Tristan is very professional, excellent with hands on and I appreciated that she had a very good understanding of the different product lines she uses and how she would use them differently, depending on the skin types of her various clients. The studio is professional in its orderliness and cleanliness and has a very calm atmosphere. I will definitely return for more services.
Lisa R
Loved my Facial What a great experience. Tristin was very helpful with my skin questions and my facial was a great treat to myself.
Michelle H
Top notch service Tristin is always very attentive to the massage work my body needs and I leave feeling so much better after each session!
Susan P
Beyond expectations Tristin was wonderful. Gave me great directions since it's a little hard to find. She answered any questions I had, recommended some changes to my routine once she did my facial. I rebooked the same day.
Keena M
Sugaring This was my first time getting "sugared" and I must say it is wayyyy better than getting a traditional wax done! Trisha was professional and very pleasant!!! I will be back and I'm recommending her services to all of my friends!
What a calming experience! I had my first facial...ever!(not going to count the one from 30 years ago). Her hands were amazing, massaging lightly and evenly over my face. The darkness and music in the room were enough for me to fall semi-asleep. My skin is so dewy right now, hours after the facial. I cannot wait to go back.
CRISTA S
Wonderful!! I had the Hot Ashi: Tristin's Signature Bodywork Treatment and all I can say is wonderful!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a real deep tissue massage . I can't want to see her again in a few weeks.
mary jo w
Super-duper! Thank you for the super treatment yesterday! You're the best!
Nicole J
ABSOLUTELY the BEST Massage EVER! Hands down (pun intended) THE BEST Massage EVER! Received a gift certificate, and will happily pay to go.back! Great work Tristan!
Anne D
So Relaxing Great Job, so very relaxing!! I need to do this more often!
Lissa
Amazing experience Thank you so much for a relaxing facial and microdermabrasion service. My skin feels amazing and you really took the time to educate me about my skin. Thanks again!
ruth h
excellent facial I just had my first facial here and it won't be the last. Tristan put me in an altered state with her neck massage. I'm going to try out a massage / body treatment next
Achla K
Excellent Tristin did a wonderful job and the neck massage was a wonderful and relaxing addition.
lisbeth h
facial amazing treatment!
Marisa R
Excellent experience I can't say enough about my recent facial at Akua. Do yourself a favor and book an appointment today!!
Debra O
Great work. Complete facial was excellent. Very professional, good products, good massage. This was second visit and I will return again
rebecca s
Great Service Tristin was very pleasant and thorough. I had a facial with microderm abrasion and LED light treatment. Tristin took her time and provided a great massage portion of the facial and the experience was very relaxing. I didn't give 5 stars because I thought the products could have been a little better, but I enjoyed Tristin's work.
Lauren B
Excellent Service I had never heard of sugaring before. My sister introduced it to me just before my wedding and I went to see Tristin for the first time. She's amazing. So kind and very informative. She made me feel very comfortable! I have been seeing her for about 4 months now and I won't go anywhere else. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know.
Ebony H
Basic Facial Great service. My main concerns were a lot of congestion in the nose, and chin area. She performed a large amount of extractions and nose and chin look much clearer.
NG
Sugaring-1st time Tristin was awesome. She made me feel very comfortable while working in such a delicate area. Highly recommend her and will be back again!!
Nicole J
100% Amazing! I purchased my honey a massage for father's day; his very FIRST one... Tristin was 100% Amazing in making him feel comfortable and answering questions he had. SHE is just awesome!
Ginnie H
Best Massage and Facial I've been going to Tristan for a few years now. I have a massage and facial every month. Strongly recommend you try her.
Lesa B
Basic facial Tristan did a great job with my basic facial. She was very friendly, listened to my concerns and answered all my questions very thoughtfully and professionally. It was a terrific experience, and I would recommend Tristan to my friends for sure.
Christina W
Amazing! Akua Esthetics&Bodywork is heaven on earth! As soon as you step in the door you're body and mind relax instantly. For the duration of your appointment time nothing crosses your mind besides the sensations of bliss!
P.N.
Total Relaxation I loved both my massage and facial so much that I am going to book an appointment for my mom for her birthday!
Sandra S
Wonderful Tristan is the best masseuse I have ever had. She instinctly knows my my needs and wants are. The massage and facial were EXCELLENT. Thank you Akua. ;-)
M.M.
Always attentive and thorough Tristin is always very attentive to the requests of her clients and does a thorough job of addressing all areas in need of attention. I left feeling revived and refreshed. Thank you!
M.C.
great massage it was everything i could ask for in a massage-superb! warm, relaxing, with just the right level of pressure. loved it, thank you!
Sarah H
Love for Akua Esthetics and Bodywork! I love this spa, and highly recommend it for massage and bodywork. Whether it be an aromatherapy massage or deep tissue, my therapist (Carol Clarke) always listens to how my body responds to therapy. Sessions at Akua are wonderfully relaxing, and are just what I need to unwind.
L.S.
Will return My massage was an excellent release for the tension in my neck and shoulders. Will definitely return!
kj miller
Akua Services Excellent, professional services. Have had sugaring and massages done here and will definitely return and recommend to others.
T.E.
My "Facial" was very nice! I was a first time customer. Atmosphere was nice. Clean. Definitely would come back for another one.
Debby B
five stars Carol gave me an amazing massage, and some really good tips on working on my problem areas. She recommended stretches that work better than those recommended by my physical therapist or my chiropractor. My money is much better spent here.
Kimberly Flowers
Groupon Amazing! I haven't felt that relaxed in years! I think I was even snoring! I especially loved the foot massage. The room was clean, comfortable, and decorated nicely. My only negative would be that I have extra sensitive eyes and the eye product left me with cloudy eyes afterwards but it still was VERY enjoyable! Carol Clarke did an awesome job! Completely relaxed and ache free!!! :):)
Kelli M
One of the best massages I've ever received! I have had a lot of massages from a lot of different massage therapists, and Carol Clarke at Akua is one of best out there! Everything was perfect - the amount of pressure, the amount of time spent on each body part/muscle, etc. It felt like much longer than an hour massage, and I kept drifting in and out of a light dream state during the massage - complete relaxation! Would highly recommend!!
K.M.
Tristin is Amazing! My first massage with her was great but when I went back a year later we did a body wrap first. The body wrap relaxed me to the point where I actually got the full benefit of the massage. Having fibromyalgia makes massage therapists work much harder and she is awesome at it. I didn't hurt once and the benefits are still going over a week later.
Y.K.
Life saver I just want to say it was awesome! I feel like my face skin got at least ten years younger. More over, my cronic leg muscle pain is gone the very next day!
r.s.
great experience What a very special facial service I experienced. I hardly ever treat myself but will make plans to do so again.
Bill R
Excellent first time experience I recently visited Akua, where I was worked on by Carol. Without question, it was one of the best massages I have received. I'll definitely be a return client. Carol was very professional, while simultaneously managing to be friendly and personable. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Colby Fox
massage and facial She did a wonderful job, am definitely going back!!! very professional and friendly. i will refer her to friends colby
a2avby
Carol is great I've had two sessions with Carol. A massage/facial and a crystal session, both were great! Carol is very attentive to what you need and tailors the session to you. Even if you don't believe in the crystal healing stuff, the massage was great and I walked out feeling great! Also, I really liked that there wasn't a ton of pressure to buy their products or schedule a bunch of sessions with them.
Mary H
relaxed & rejeuvenated Very comfortable environment. Respectful and understanding staff. Positive over all experience and good value.
S.L.
Massage & Facial Carol gave me a wonderful massage and facial along with some great tips for my skin.I feel great and my face feels so refreshed!
Megan P
Tristin is the BEST I have been going to Tristin for 3.5 years, and I am always so happy with her work. I travel a lot for work, and my back, neck, and shoulders are often a mess. Tristin finds the problem areas and works them out, and I feel great every time I leave.
E.A.
Good Job very thorough I had a great massage! They did not skimp on the time, the facial made my skin smooth and soft and they were very helpful and informative. I look forward to going there again.
Suzan
1 Hr Facial and 1 Hr Massage Everything was wonderful from beginning to end! I look and feel rejuvenated. Thank you Tristan!!!!
Beverly S
Fabulous Facial I just had the most relaxing rejuvenating facial ever! Carol was totally fabulous - skilled hands, pleasant style, great explanations - lovely. I really saw a difference in my skin and am definitely planning to be a regular customer!
Terina Greenway
exactly what was needed! An awesome deep tissue massage that got out all the knots and kinks from my stressful life and the facial was great too. Even though I purchased through Groupon I will definitely go back on my own.
Debra K
A relaxing visit I had a 30 min massage and 30 min facial. I was most surprised by the facial which really made my skin look great. The massage was both therapeutic and relaxing. Carol did a great job!
Jennifer B
Carole was great! She created a warm relaxing environment and was able to pinpoint the spots that needed some extra work. Definitely enjoyed my service!
K.U.
Wonderful Carol had just the right touch. She seems to know if you need deep tissue or a slow release massage. Felt very relaxed and rejuvenated.
Peggi Clark
AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Carol has the hands of an angel (sometimes it felt like the devil was involved as well) but that was exactly what I wanted and needed. An excellent experience I would recommend highly.
D.N.
Nice job! Carol was thorough and able to zero in on the most challenging areas. It was very helpful! I left with more mobility and ease than normal.
J.M.
Amazing Carol really listened to what I needed. I left feeling refreshed and MUCH less sore. I am so glad she is part of Akua now!
Astraea L
Fabulous! Tristin really listens to what you want the focus to be, the pressure level, etc. I like a very deep massage and most 'spa' places are just surface level. Tristin really gets in there and works on my problem areas with deep pressure but always checks to make sure the pressure isn't too much. She rocks!
Jamie B
Wonderful Massage/Facial Great service. I just love Tristin's attention to detail. She made sure that the massage was exactly how I wanted it. She gave the best facial I've ever had. She offered wonderful advice about caring for my skin. Overall a wonderful experience. I will certainly be back!
Ginnie H
As always wonderful massage I regularly go to Tristan for massage and am always very satisfied. She has a great instinct on where my body needs work. I can't wait to go again.
Kelly C
relaxing facial I went to see Tristan for a 1 hr facial. She did a great job of listening to my skin care goals and tailoring the facial to meet those needs. It was very cleansing, as well as relaxing. She is personable and very skilled at what she does. I hope to return for furture appointments.
Rita Brown
Tristin is AMAZING! I had my second 1-hr. massage with Tristin and can honestly say she is the best massage therapist I have ever been to. She has "magic hands" and really works with you targeting the areas that are giving you the most pain. She has a wonderful personality and makes you feel so relaxed. You can tell that she truly cares and wants to help. She has been truly blessed with a special gift - I highly suggest you try a massage for yourself; you will not regret it!!
Debbie Bailley
1Hr facial 1 hour massage The facial was very nice!! And so was the massage :-) I wish it would have not taken so long to get in for my appoitments is the only thing negative about it.. and the location of the building was difficult to find.
Sandy Pfaff
fantastic i went to see tristan for a 1 hr massage, an 15 minutes into it i was signing up for a nutter 1, she is great, it was a wonderful experience, i came out of the room an i was not limping at all. an walking stright. she has magic hands!!!
Janet P
A Wonderful Experience I went to Tristan for the combination 1 hour massage and 1 hour facial. I left feeling like a million dolars. She is the best massage therapist I have had.
J.E.
Fantastic Bodyworker!!! Most professional and knowlegable about the body, does a great job in identifying and relieving tight areas.
Janette Hescheles
Mrs. Tristin was excellent, very caring! She took the time to ask questions and help parts of my body that hurt. I initially felt quite sore, but I feel much better today.
L.A.
Facial Very relaxing facial. Enjoyed all 60 minutes! Tristan explained all the different treatments and my face looked smooth and radient afterwards.
Pisinee W
Akua rocks! What a treat! I had one hour massage with Tristin and left feeling like a different person. She is one of the best massuse in my experience. I can't be more pleased. I am going back for more ...
Michelle M
Awesome Massage! Tristen was an amazing massage therapist and I would definitely book another appointment with her. She finds the trouble spots and makes them disappear!
Jeff Bayer
In Tune Tristen is phenomenal, and so in tune with my body and my needs. She "finds" areas of stress and discomfort, works on it's cause, not just rubbing the area. I look forward to each months session, and have reaped the benefit of Tristen's talents!
Jack S
Right place at the right time. I schedule regularly with Akua Esthetics & Bodywork! Tristen has helped immensely with chronic back muscle issues. I recommend this business to all.
Matt
Great Massage, chill environment Tristin gives a great massage and makes you feel comfortable while you are there. She is able to provide the requisite pressure to work out the bugs and is great at making sure your are comfortable with the level of pressure. As mentioned, she is also good at listening to your body and applying the right amount of work. Would recommend.
Sarah W
facial and massage were excellent Very professional and friendly. Relaxed environment. Easy to contact. Very good massage but not the absolute best I have had... nice pressure, good concentration on problem areas, great communication. Facial was very good. Also great communication and good evaluation of skin problems. Would definitely return for a repeat visit.
Michael Zeidler
Wonderful experience Everything was great. The massage felt wonderful, the ambiance was relaxing. I didn't have to wait. Please, go and enjoy a massage from Tristen, it will make your day.
Toni J
Amazing Tristen is so talented. I have never had a massage/facial that was a good as this before. I am recommending Tristen to everyone. I received so many compliments on my skin after my apt.
j.m.
Best Massage in Ann Arbor There is no competition for best masseuse in Ann Arbor. Tristen has the ability to find the magical trigger points that no one else can find.
Laura Y
Good Great massage - she listened to what I said (and what my muscles said) very well, and the facility is super peaceful and comfortable.
Thomas Brown
R. Brown First time massage with Tristen at Akua. She is awesome! I suffer from chronic head/neck pain and she really worked on my trouble areas. It is giving me hope that there is help for me!
J.P.
First Time Massage at Akua I had the opportunity to have my first massage with Tristen at Akua. She was very professional and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I will definitely be back!
N.C.
Great first facial I jumped at the opportunity to get a groupon for my first facial, and found the experience wonderful. Tristen is absolutely great - flexible in scheduling, knowledgeable on problem areas, and made the experience overall very comfortable and relaxing. I will be going back!
J.E.
Fantastic Theraputic Massage I have been a client of Tristen for number of years. She is very professional, runs a great operation, and most importantly, is a first class Massage Therapist. As a client who works out often, and practices/plays golf throughout the summer, I need Tristen on my team! She is able to identify areas that need specific attention and provides the right pressure to help alleviate knots and relax my overworked muscles.
Mark F
Outstanding massage! I highly recommend Akua for a massage that is tailored to your needs. One of the best massages I have had. The masseuse was perfect, she applied the right pressure and the hot stones were a great plus.
Nate V
Excellent Experience I had a wonderful experience in a clean, friendly, and relaxing environment. Masseuse was very strong and gave an awesome deep-tissue massage. Check it out!
Bonnie Dockham
Amazing Massage Tristin is the best therapist I have ever been to after trying out MANY. I always leave relaxed and renewed. I drive 30 mins for her.
D. Johnson
Wonderful Experience! After struggling with some unusual breakouts resulting in redness on my face, I set-up an appointment with Tristin for a consultation. She evaluated the condition of my skin and prescribed a week of using some special PCA Skincare products. In just one week, my skin was looking and feeling better. Upon her recommendation, I am now following up with a series of chemical peels which will renew and rejuvenate my skin.
S.A.
Great! Wonderful customer service, and even better Jon done. Can't wait to go back again. Tristin is very skilled, an was able to help me understand how to better treat my skin to get the beautiful glow I was looking for.
K.C.
One of the BEST! I received my massage from Tristin, and it was one of the best massages that I ever had! She worked on all the areas i requested and was very therapeutic.
J.T.
Excellent! Tristen was able to find every stop that had been giving me trouble for over the past year. I have been to several therapists and she was by far the most successful at relieving the pain. I recommend her to anyone seeking a massage therapist.
Jo Fone
Superb facial Tristan did an excellent job. Her friendly and professional welcome set me up for a very enjoyable hour with notable results. She also demonstrated her in depth knowledge with advice for on going care of my skin at home. I have booked a repeat appointment already.
H.J.
Wonderful facial Tristin is excellent in her manner and the facial was wonderful. It was all very relaxing and she listened to my skin concerns and gave me great advice. I left feeling very pampered!
Susan Brimacombe
Fantastic!! Loved my facial at Akua Esthetics, - Tristin was super knowledgeable and helped me to understand why I am having such difficulties with winter dry skin. I feel like she was able to restore the moisture into my skin in one treatment and then give me some great recommendations on what products I should be using and why I need to use them as opposed to other things. Thanks so much Tristin for treating me as an individual and helping me with my particular problems.
M.B.
Amazing! Tristin is extremely professional. Before seeing her the first time I had petty concerns but she put me at ease before we even met in person. Her massages are the best I have ever had. A one time massage turned into a monthly visit. Akua's prices are extremely reasonable. I would highly recommend Akau.
Kathy Arnold
wonderful facial Tristin does a soothing facial. My face felt really great after my appointment. The studio was clean with a nice relaxing atmosphere. It was great to be able to park right in front of the studio
L.W.
Great facial! This was my first experience with Akua and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked how Tristin took considerable time to understand and ask questions about my skin type and behavior. The facial was very relaxing and I felt great afterwards.
J.C.
Great service I had the massage and facial there and Tristin was really helpful about the service, definitely a five-star! The groupon was a great deal for someone to experience.
S.S.
So nice! Perfect way to treat myself. Tristin was very attentive to my needs and what areas of my body I wanted work on. I felt so good after the massage. It was such a nice, relaxing experience.
A.K.
Excellent! Great location, with ample parking. Space was clean, and Trista was wonderful. She knew right away what needed attention and dealt with that perfectly. I will be back!
Mariam M
Excellent service My experience at this salon was excellent. I had a facial so she explained the issues I have with my skin and ways to treat it. Tristin was pleasant and comforting for having to deal with people's skin issues. The facial and massage were both great and I am looking forward to my next appointment.
R.S.
Great massages Tristin knows exactly how to identify my problem areas and I always feel amazingly refreshed after one of her massages. She is extremely thorough, attentive and skilled. Highly recommended for all.
A.G.
Thanks, Tristin! My treatment was outstanding from beginning to end. The online booking is genius, the facility is tidy and professional, and Tristin is an excellent masseuse. One of the best treatments I've ever had.
Kim G
Awesome Tristan is very friendly, personable and easy to talk to - I felt at ease immediately. And the massage was great - I want to go back! I recommend her highly!!
m.p.
Great therapist Tristin knows just how much pressure to use and where to work in order to relieve tense muscles. I need therapy work and she is the one I go to. She continues to learn and apply her knowledge to help her clients. Great massage, thanks Tristin you keep be out of pain.
Jack Sherburne
Excellent Service Tristen has the ability to identify problems that have caused disruptions in my lifestyle. I have had a serious back problem that created muscle knotting and back spasms. Over a series of just a few sessions these problems are gone! I will use Akua Esthetics & Bodywork for as long as Tristen is there.
K
Nice treat Enjoyed the massage with Tristin. She tailored the pressure and concentration of her work well and I left feeling very relaxed. The facility was convenient and clean.
S.S.
THE BEST Tristan worked my shoulders better than any other massage therapist has. Everything with regards to my experience at Akua was extremely professional and top of the line. Can't wait til I can go again.
Kristy K
Wonderful. I love Tristin. She uses fantastic pressure, it's a serene room, and I love the awesome extra special treats; heating pad and hot stones. It's a wonderful, relaxing and reinvigorating experience.
Big ED
Will make a beliver out of you. It you think a massage is a waste of time, then you need to try Tristin. Very professional and right at finding the trigger points. Give her a try, you will not be dis-appointed.
A.S.
Awesome! Tristin is amazing at what she does! I've never gotten a better massage. I can't recommend Akua highly enough. The facility is easy to find and very professional.
Jack Sherburne
Tristen has performed wonders! I have had a scoleoscis problem for many years. Tristen has performed wonders on the most serious of my back muscle problems. I had never been to a massage business until I tried Akua Esthetics & Bodywork. I would highly recommend her to anyone that has tried other methods of relief.
J.T.
Felt great when I left! I throughly enjoyed my massage. Tristin was great and she tells you where all your trouble spots are. I will tell my friends and family to go see Tristan.
S.S.
Very Good Massage Therapist Tristin was very thorough with my massage. She addressed everything I asked of her. I would highly recommend her. She is very professional. I was impressed. I would definitely go back.
J.B.
Excellent, effective I've had a great deal of experience with a variety of massage therapy techniques, and Tristin is truly one of the best . She's knowledgable, experienced, professional, and very effective. I will definitely return!
Michelle Miranda
Personalized, relieving treatment~HIghly recommended Tristin was very attentive to my personal needs and expectations for a stress and ache relieving massage. I would hight recommend her services to others seeking the same relief :). Thank you!
Dawn G
Outstanding!!!! What a wonderful experience! This was my first ever massage, I was a little nervous, but the nervousness went away after 5 minutes! Tristin was extremely professional and put me right at ease. The office was very clean and inviting. The whole experience was outstanding! I will definitely recommend Akua to all my friends and family!
courtney c
Loved it I have never had a massage and it was great. I felt very comfortable there and the warm blankets and warm device she used to get the kinks out was amazing. I am defiently coming back again
S.G.
You have no idea where you hurt, but she does! Tristin will ask where you ache and areas to focus on, but I am alweays amazed that she finds those spot that you do not even recognize as a problem area and how good it feels after she unknots it. I am amazed at what people will endure, but after leaving Tristin, I always wonder at how good I feel and why people unnecessarily carry around the stress and the strain, when Tristin can help melt that away.
Susan L
Superb!! Tristin gave me such a wonderful massage and made my "trouble spots" disappear. I not only left the massage feeling relaxed but I also had renewed energy due to feeling so great!
Amy
Fabulous! I had a great massage with Tristin. My husband had one several weeks ago and enjoyed his as well. Tristin got further into my 'trouble spots' than most massage therapists are able to. I plan on going to Tristin for my next massage!
Mary H
Hair removal I had a great experience with Tristin. I was sugared in a lets say, 'sensitive' area. She made me feel comfortable and did a great job in a short period of time. I will be back soon!
Megan
I will never go elsewhere! I've been a client of Tristin's for over two years, and there's a reason I keep going back. Each massage is different, tailored to my current needs. And each time I leave feeling fantastic. I highly recommend Tristin; she is kind, professional, and a very talented massage therapist!
T.C.
A very good experience Tristin is very professional. The easy of scheduling online is great. The setting is very relaxing. The massage was complete and can be tailored to your individual needs. The extra heating pads were a special touch.
kewbert
A fantastic experience, all around. After 2 visits with Tristin, my upper back went from a year's worth of pain and tingling to normal. I can now, even with a 10-month old to constantly lift and carry, move freely without pain. Tristin was flexible with scheduling and details, professional and insightful with our entrance and exit interviews, and gifted and thorough on the table.
Rita Long
One of the Best Massages I've ever had! Terrific ! Treat yourself and do this ... Great massage, great environment and great customer service. A true professional with warm people skills and oen of the best massages I have ever had.
J.F.
amazing massage! I'm completely happy with the massage I received! I feel amazing!! Being a new mom is really hard on the body, Tristin got every knot out of my neck and back and gave me a much needed relaxing break!
p.b.
Fantastic massage She did a teriffic job, the best that I have ever had. I plan on going back for additional massages. I had a particular problem that she worked on and provided tremendos relief.
S.S.
Great massage Tristin did a great job with the massage--my back feels incredible. She is very good at the deep knots and tension, and is very friendly. Will definitely go back!
Cynthia D
Best I have ever had I have been getting massages from Groupon whenever they are available. Most of the time its pretty much a bust. This was the BEST massage I have EVER had though. Tristin is very strong and got at my deep knots amazingly. Also, loved the heat pack on the back while my feet and calves were getting worked. Amazing
Debby B
best massage ever I've had dozens of massages to treat muscle pain, but this was a really, really good one. Tristan has a lot of skill and is *very* strong!! I highly recommend Akua Esthetics and Bodywork, and will be going back!
P.O.
Tension, be gone. I like many others have a favorite place to store tension between massages; in my case it's the neck and shoulders. Tristan therefore addressed this area for a significant potion of my session, wonderfully restoring my ability to turn my neck without pain.
B.J.
Great massage I've had a few massages at other locations, but this experience was the best. My upper neck/ back area is really tight and Tristan really worked out a lot of those tight areas. I will come back for sure. Great job!!!
E.J.
Awesome massage Tristan gave a very good massage. The full body massage really worked on areas that many masseuses don't pay attention to. She used just the right amount of pressure to allow me to feel like I really got something out of it.
Angela Koelsch
Terrific massage Tristan is a wonderful masseuse and did a great job getting the knots and kinks out of my back. I would recommend her to everyone. I plan on returning in the future.
D.B.
Wonderful experience We were a group of 3 ladies who wanted to have a massage. Tristan went out of her way to schedule us to fit our schedules. The massage it's self was wonderful and we all walked away feeling refreshed and satisfied. Tristan was able to work a lot of the kinks and stress out of my back and shoulder area. I am very happy with my experience and would not only return for another massage, but I would recommend her to everyone.
J.D.
First time visit went very well Great atmosphere and Tristan is very knowledgable and has great technique. Great for back problems and sore shoulders, and she works very well to cater to each clients needs.
A.P.
Great work Great location, professional setting; Therapist was able to very quickly and consistently locate problem areas and work on them. effective in understanding patient's needs and prioritize work areas. A very good experience
Greg H
First Time Visit, I will be back! I have had a few massages for my old worn out body before, but Tristin techniques to my lower back and buttocks had me golfing without pain and stress. Thank you Tristin and see you soon.
S.B.
Outstanding Massage Tristin took the time to ask and listen to my experience, preferences and current needs. Her skills are among the best (and I've been to a LOT of body workers over the years). I felt completely safe, relaxed, calm and ready to face the rest of my week. Now I'm curious about some of her other offerings and looking forward to our next meeting. Thank you, Tristin!
client
best prenatal massage I'm 38 wks pregnant and was able to lie comfortably face down on the table because of Tristin's support cushions. My back has not felt this good in a LONG time. Tristin's massage was the best I've ever had. I highly recommend her.
satisfied client
Great facial! Not only does Tristin give a great facial, she is always learning and improving her service. She recently completed a class on skin care & has already begun implementing what she learned about protecting the skin from the sun. Way to go!
e.m.
Thankful This was a first for me. Tristin warned me that I might have soreness later on. No pain at all. Matter of fact, I wish I could go back again as I feel like my body really needs this. She answered a lot of my questions. Thanks again.
Very satisfied client
Great experience! Tristin does a great job and is very attentive to your preferences. Very professional and attentive to modesty. Attractive and soothing atmosphere. I left feeling wonderful!
Amy S
Very good massage! Tristan gave a deep massage (which I like) and asked questions to make sure I was satisfied with the type of massage I was receiving. I would recommend Tristan as a massage therapist!

Great experience! Sugaring is amazing and Tristan is very nice and good at it! I definitely recommend going here. You will have a great experience and will never go back to waxing.

Informative and Professional I had an excellent and relaxing experience, from beginning to end. Making an appointment was simple and hassle-free. I felt like I was in very capable hands with Tristin. She adjusted to my comfort level and worked out a few tension points throughout my body. Her price is a steal for the great amount of professional attention I received.

We're Becoming Regulars! My wife and I really enjoyed our massages. Tristin was very professional, and our bodies both felt amazing afterwards. The next day the results were obvious and we are looking forward to our monthly sessions.

Great massage, great atmosphere. Amazing prenatal massage! I didn't realize how much my body needed it. I felt amazing the rest of the day. Looking forward to booking my next appointment!

Can Hardly Wait for My Next Massage Tristan gave me one of the best massages I've ever had. She was professional and warm, and really took care to listen to my needs and style preferences. My workout the day after my massage was better than it had been in months, thanks to her skilled hands!

My new favorite thing about Ann Arbor! I like the location. I like their space -- how it looks and feels. I love the online scheduling! Tristan is the best! I went in with two-three knots, and when she was done, I melted off the table!

First rate massage (including pre-natal) Tristan is a true professional. She has been my only massage therapist for several years, and I look forward to each visit. When I was pregnant, I learned that she is an expert in pre-natal massage as well. I highly recommend Tristan and Akua Esthetics and Bodywork!

Fantastic!! Tristin is great. Her massage work is very therapeutic and you leave feeling like a new person. The facility is really clean and nicely decorated, It's a very relaxing atmosphere. There is plenty of parking, and it's easy to find. I would highly recommend Akua! Also... the online scheduling is a very nice addition.
