A safe place to relax, "escape" that "trapped in" feeling.

I am a regular client that sees Sofia twice monthly for a Swedish Relaxation massage when I am in town on business and must say that she is always professional, sweet, and quite gifted with her hands. She works out of home and has a very healing and soothing environment with candles and soft piano music in the background. I can say I always leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and like a new person. Two thumbs up if you are looking for incall bodywork in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area!

Sweet, gracious, and professional massage, with a lovely, clean environment. Private setting, as stated, her own apartment. Shower and bottled water. Beautiful classical background music. Most definitely felt at ease and enjoyed what I expected.
