Wow! Tameka has a highly developed deep tissue massage technique. I went to her with massive knots in my neck and traps thanks to a highly stressful job and my first 5 months as a desk warrior after being a gym warrior for years. My body is hates me right now. It's a miracle she didn't need a massage after working diligently on me. I came with knots on knots on knots. When I left those knots were a distant memory. I can't wait to go back. Her space is relaxing and serene. She's always booked because she's that good! I would recommend her to athletes as well as desk warriors. I'm excited to see what she can do to my quads and hip flexors. As a cpt, lifter of heavy things, and desk jokey.... she can handle it all. Book her!
Tameika is the most dedicated masseuse I've ever been too. I've been seeing her recently about once a month and her deep tissue massage has made a huge improvement to my everyday functioning! I carry a lot of stress in my shoulders and upper back, and every time I visit she is able to really work out the knots and resolve many of my trigger points. I have referred multiple friends and all have been over the moon (and repeat customers) at Enhancing Massage! If you are looking for someone that actually cares about your whole body health, and wants you to feel better, I would highly recommend Enhancing Massage!
Best massage in town!! Tameika specializes in Deep Tissue and Sports Massage. As a marathoner, Ironman and endurance athlete, I could not do what I do without Tameika. Recovery and listening to your body is as important as training. Tameika gets it. She is focused, dedicated, takes pride in the treatment and therapy she provides. My husband, also a marathoner, and I count on her so much. Best of all, Tameika is a wonderful person who truly, truly cares about her clients. I cannot recommend her enough!
I highly recommend Tameika and her massage services through EMB. She works with me on a weekly basis and is literally changing my life. Massage has so many therapeutic and relaxation benefits that I do not see this as an extravagance, but rather essential. I have a highly stressful job and suffer from chronic tension migraines. She has been working with me to relieve the pain. She invests in her clients by taking the time to learn about them and continuously evolve and improve her practice to help you see ongoing results. She always has an amazing attitude and makes you feel completely at ease. Thank you so much!! See you later this week!!
I've been receiving deep tissues massages from Tameika for about a year. Initially, I went to treat myself once, but quickly I learned how important massages were for my health. I wish I started receiving massages years ago, but I am so glad that I started this past year and was lucky to meet Tameika! I'm an avid cyclist, and I do some sprint triathlons. These massages help keep my muscles healthy so I can exercise better and prevent injury. I will always keep these massages as part of my health routine.
I have been coming here for the past few years every 6 months or when I feel the need to. Tameika is great at what she does. This is her own business and she is the sole employee. Her office is located in a small room in a suite of other businesses on Greenbriar. This is not a fluff type of massage place, although I'm sure it could be if that's what you are wanting; this place is serious business for someone needing deep tissue and sports medicine work. I come here because I need serious work done on my upper back, traps, shoulders, and neck due to the stress of my job, upper cross syndrome, generalized anxiety disorder and OCD, and overall tension. I have her focus solely on those areas for the entire hour and I always leave feeling refreshed and loosened up! Tameika works slowly and firmly, and makes sure to try her best to get your knots out in one session. You can book online, or just give her a call and check with her about setting up a time. Her rate is pretty standard as well, and it's worth it. I found her on Groupon and became a regular customer. I've tried out quite a few massage therapists before finding Tameika, and they were okay, but Tameika made a lasting impression. I highly recommend her if you need real relief. I just left my appointment a few minutes ago actually. Until next time!
Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I'm a low maintenance gal. I don't rock the latest bag nor need retail therapy to make me happy. In the same regard, getting a massage every other year was seen as a splurge in my eyes--not really a necessity but a want. However, my recent visit to Enhancing Massage and Bodyworks shattered all my preconceived thoughts on massages. Tameika Byrd, the owner and therapist of EMB, not only gave me the best massage of my life, she educated me on why the body needs a massage. Just like exercise, the body needs to be stretched by a professional. Underline the word professional because everybody that offers massages does NOT know what they're doing! Tameika KNOWS what she's doing and carries the confident as well as studies and continually educates herself in the field to give her clientele and their body the best treatment needed to "enhance" their bodies. Although I used a Groupon to experience her services for the first time, I checked her reviews on Yelp prior to purchasing it. I can attest to many of the comments that other Yelpers have stated: Tamieka is "through, skilled, uber talented, and Ahh--mazing!" You will leave EMB relaxed and feeling like a new person. Mind you, I have been feeling ill for the past few weeks. I thought about cancelling the appointment (which I was able to conveniently make online), but I was able to get well enough to still make my appointment. After my massage, I felt so rejuvenated. I hadn't felt this good in months! This one visit really convinced me that I MUST give back to my body more--and that starts with monthly visits to Tameika. You may not think you can afford nor have the time for a massage, but you only have one body. You have to treat it tender loving care. EMB is the place to give it the right TLC that your body needs. Its central location also make it not too far to travel to no matter what side of the Houston that you're located at, and she has Saturday appointments, so no excuses. You won't regret your decision to make this the place your oasis!
I've had massages before from different people, not just around Houston all around the country, at upscale places and not so upscale places. Tameka. Is. The. Best. Go see her!!
EMB is the crown jewel massage establishment of Houston. I feel like a million dollars enduring i get on Tameika's table...she is highly skilled...very knowledgeable of the body and extremely intelligent and professional Just have faith and go
I get massages regularly and have for years. She is by far one of the most thorough therapists I've ever had. Her innate grasp of anatomy and physiology coupled with the strength of her hands (she's tiny with the strength of a sumo on 'roids) is a rare find. Although I live in Dallas, I make a point to schedule with her on my monthly trips to Houston. Yes, she is the only therapist as it's her business. A fast growing business no less. So for all the el cheapos from Groupon land, regular clients with standing appointments kinda limit the slots. SHE IS BUSY because...wait for it....SHE IS SKILLED. Better yet ÜBER TALENTED. The deep tissue massages...the TRUTH! She finds knots you didn't even know you had. 3 massages in Dallas to get the knots out of my shoulders without success. One session and my shoulders are back to normal. Athletes! She is ya girl!
I found EMB via Groupon and scheduled an appointment within 2 weeks which was convenient for me. I can honestly say Tameika takes pride in her work and has great expertise in deep tissue sports massages. I've been going for a few years now and it's really helped me remove all the knots and strains from a poor posture and frequent exercise. Tameika makes sure her focus is always on delivering an exceptional massage whilst also providing a professional service to all her clients. I really appreciate her commitment and support.
I love going to Enhancing Massage and Body Works: my concerns are always discussed before my massage and Tameika takes good care to make sure that I don't exit with the same concerns. I came to Enhancing Massage as a Groupon customer, but I'm now a monthly visitor. I really appreciate the time taken to make sure that all my aches are dealt with.
I started going to Tameika after being referred by a colleague. I work in high stress environment and was looking to plug in as a regular client. Tameika was the best find! She tailors your massage to what you need and I felt so much better all around after I started going regularly. But here is the BEST part - I hadn't been able to run in 6 years (after having been college athlete) due to something going on with my IT Band. After having seen multiple orthopedic doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists and investing serious time and money with no results, I'd long since given up. I mentioned to Tameika I could run and given her a brief explanation. On my 3rd visit, she told me that she didn't think it was my IT band. And she basically narrowed it down to a muscle near my knee. She worked on it and within weeks, I could run!! She figured out what no one had been able to for 6 years. She's that good.
I love going to Enhancing Massage and Body Works. Tameika does wonders on my back and body! I always leave feeling rejuvenated and full of life again. I'm so stressed out being a teacher and she truly helps me feel that inner of happiness that I'm missing. I could have not chosen a better or more perfect masseuse!!! Thank You Tameika for everything you have done the last few weeks. You have truly help me become a better person. I continue to pray for God to bless you with more and great clients like me!!!
Such a good experience I only had one person in mind once I was injured in an car accident. Talked over my discomfort, gave me great stretching tips and mapped out a plan to get me back to 100 percent. Nice quiet and inviting area as well
I recently had another relaxing massage at EMB. The service is personalized and made to fit my specific needs. My money is well spent on the loyalty program.
I found out about Enhancing Massage and Bodyworks through Groupon. I had no issues with scheduling an appointment (it's super easy to use the link on the website: enhancingmassage.massagetherapy.com) and the reminder emails that you get a few days before the appointment was helpful as well. Tameika (the therapist) was extremely friendly and professional. Unlike other places that like to forego the last 10 min of the session, Tameika made sure that I got my full hour! I am really excited about my next appointment, which is in a couple of days, and I look forward to becoming a regular customer.
Got a massage here with Tamika using a Groupon. It was a bit hard to find at first as there are no exterior signs, but once inside I found my way around a little easier. It's in an office-type building, upstairs, in a hospice office. This was a little off-putting at first but after talking with Tamika I totally get it. She's just a single lady trying to get her massage business off the ground and since she is flying solo for now, this is the safest way to do it. Now, the massage itself? Ahh-mazing. Girl is a massage goddess! Though she be small she is but fierce. I am def coming back and I have no problem paying full price next time. Get in on a great deal with the Groupon and become a regular!
I recently purchased a Groupon for EMB. Since, I have been unable to schedule a massage, and the earliest available massage is over 3 weeks from now (per on-line scheduling and only between standard business hours). I have called numerous times without a return phone call. I will not purchase another Groupon for this, and it is doubtful I will even be able to use this Groupon. I'm glad this business is doing well b/c my business has certainly been lost before I can even set foot in the door.
Edit2/28/2014 I've been seeing Tameika for a couple months. I originally found her on groupon, I'm now a regular client. Initially I was dealing with severe lower back pain. After monthly massages from Tameika, for the past 3 months, I'm no longer in pain. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the therapy, education I receive, and the atmosphere. The environment is soothing and serene. I enjoy the convenience of scheduling my sessions online, positive communication, and the affordable monthly loyalty program.
