Testimonials

I had an amazing massage here during our summer 2019 vacation. The owner was so nice and worked out everything that needed to be! My massage was the highlight of our vacation, and I can’t wait to return this summer!

I have been getting massages for a few years. I’ve been to sports massage therapy offices, nationwide membership franchises, and resort spa’s.
My massage experience here at Basalt Bodywork was absolutely the best total experience I have ever had. Marci was very respectful and knowledgeable. She listened to what I was dealing with, asked questions to clarify, and explained things to me like the use of grounding mats.
I loved the studio space, it was perfect in every way. Marci has created a very relaxing comfortable space, that fits perfectly with downtown Ocean City.
Booking and communication was simple and efficient. I found this place here on Yelp and was able to book an appointment online and Marci had picked out some essential oils for me ahead of time based on my comments on the booking form.
I will definitely be back next summer. I’ll be booking my massage the same time we book our rental house!

I have had massages for years , on 4 continents, in countless countries, by incredible massage therapists. Today I do believe I may have had the best massage to date. Marci at Basalt Bodyworks in Ocean City is simply incredible. She recently added an Infrared Detox Sauna. I did a half hour in there before we began. Now I suppose you could ask her for a specific type of massage , but I have always believed that a good masseuse will know what you need. I would describe Marci as an Intuitive Therapist. She finds the knots, she feels the tension, she uses CBD oil if you want , she uses essential oils, she uses hot stones. She also plays great music and I just love the vibe of her space. So do yourself a favor… love yourself , and treat yourself to a well deserved massage. YOU ARE WORTH IT!

I got an hour long table massage here a couple of days ago. Easily the best massage experience I’ve ever had. The studio is cozy, beautifully decorated, and very peaceful. I received a great massage, and I will definitely be back when I’m in OC next. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a some soothing, therapeutic bodywork.

Wow, what more can I say about Basalt Massage. I’ve been going to Marci since she opened, but not often enough. I am finally getting around to writing a long overdue review. The serene atmosphere is a perfect setting for the transformative experience one will have. Basalt offers a variety of massages to suits one’s desires or needs, all for the same price. Where else can you have a hot stone massage for the price of a Swedish? And her prices are reasonable. You pick, she aims to please. I have never been disappointed. Perhaps it’s her nursing background that makes her so knowledgeable as well as being able to hone in on one’s body’s needs. Marci finds kinks I didn’t even know existed. She determinedly works them out with her incredibly strong and skilled hands. Basalt offers money saving packages to encourage regular care taking. Marci helped me to realize that a massage is not only a pleasurable experience, but a worthwhile investment into one’s health care needs. I can’t say enough about my wonderful experiences!
