About Us


Our Philosophy

Sanctuary on 9th was imagined from the experience of Sanctuary on 2nd, a "hidden gem" in the Queen Village Section of Philadelphia. Gratified by the support and enthusiasm from our community for almost 25 years, we are excited to bring the "Sanctuary experience" to 9th St. We continue to be inspired by our historic surroundings with inviting aromas and a whimsical atmosphere welcoming all who enter.

We recognize how busy life can be and realize the time and resources necessary to make room for massage. It is our philosophy and commitment that we will do all we can to make your experience positive Every Massage for Every Person and Every Time with Every Therapist you work with.

Every Massage

All of our massages are customized to your needs. We use a variety of styles from Swedish to Acupressure to Deep Tissue to create an integrated massage that addresses your therapeutic goals for the session. We maintain an unhurried schedule so that we can check in with you before the session to make sure our focus reflects your needs and wishes.

We welcome and value whatever contributions you, your body’s expert, have to the flow of the session. Your comfort and your positive experience are our highest priority. Our sessions last as long as described and we will not rush you out (especially after we both worked so hard to get you relaxed).

Every Person

We feel privileged to work with every “body” that enters our doors. Sanctuary has 20 years of experience working with a large variety of clients. We welcome all who seek us out and customize our work to each individual’s needs. When you book a massage with us, you are booking your own unique session. There are no extra charges for aromatherapy, pregnancy, or deep tissue.


Every Time

Your body’s needs do not remain static and neither do our sessions. We will be present and we will tailor our approach to you every time we are privileged to work with you.

Every Therapist

Every therapist on our staff believes in the Sanctuary Philosophy and Commitment to our clients. We are all licensed and certified massage therapists with a commitment to continuing education and seeking the highest standards of our profession. Our therapists tend to come and stay with an average of about 8 years experience right here at Sanctuary.
