Where is the Best Swedish Massage in Oakland, California?
I was a client of Mrs. Bentz (Monica) during several days of visits over the holidays 2007. As a gift, I was given quite a number of services. I was immediately impressed by Monica’s beautiful engaging smile and non-invasive, yet personable, demeanor. She made me feel right at home. Her conversation was either educating or lightly appropriate and never made me feel as if I were being asked for a 30 minute review of my life, like so many cosmetologists, or masseuse do. There was clear evidence that Monica was focused on my needs, desires and comforts, so that she could provide me with a truly memorable experience.

Elena gave me EXACTLY the haircut I wanted and needed for my night on the town, and the way she made me look and feel was absolutely divine! I really love the way she listened to me before she began. After the day I’d had at work, the scalp treatment she gave to me just relaxed me so much, I forgot all about all the problems that gave me a splitting headache when I walked in. Elena gave me a really great shampoo and haircut, and made me look really, really great!!! She made me feel like I no longer had a care in the world. The other part of my visit with Elena that I really liked was the way my coloring also came out — Elena has a really great coloring touch that I just can’t get enough of. I kid you not, Elena’s the lady I ALWAYS want to do my hair!! She’s a re
