Allyson is great! One of the best massages I have had. She has a wonderful touch that will relax you to the brink of sleep. I think this is a good thing!      Jeffery M.


Can't say enough good thongs about The Retreat & Allyson. The relaxing atmosphere, each part of the massage and the value are all excellent. And ask for the "Good for the Sole" add-on for your feet and calves - tremendous!      -Al H.


Looking for THE place to get a massage and skin care all under one roof in Knoxville?  Then the Retreat is the place to go.  Allyson is the person to go see if you go once I promise you will rebook.      -Roger B.


Pure bliss! I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked into the building.  I was greeted at the door by Allyson and she is just sweet as can be and very down to earth friendly. The massage was wonderfully relaxing and I can assure you she is very skilled and careful of sensitive and painful areas. I am very happy I went to" The Retreat " and I will be going back many times. I feel marveloussss!  Look no farther, The Retreat is the best massage - Allyson (is) the best masseuse - don't miss this chance for a great feel good day. Thanks Allyson for the super massage and fitting me in so quickly.      -Rose B.


I spend the majority of my day carrying around a heavy camera, usually running after drunk people.  So one of the first things I do when I get to a new city is find a good massage therapist.  I've had many massages and I'd have to say Allyson is one of the best!  Spring for the deep tissue/ hot stone massage, your back will thank you!      -Joel T.


For a person who has had massage, but still can feel less than comfortable in that situation, this was a wonderful experience.  Allyson did a great job relieving each muscle group and making me feel relaxed as it happened. I highly recommend her services and frequently do.  Give her a chance and you will appreciate the care and attention she gives to your therapeutic needs.  Boy, do I feel good! Give yourself extra time to mentally prepare to return to the real world when you are done!      -Susan H.


What a wonderful way to spend a cold rainy day by getting a "Pure Results" facial at The Retreat by Allyson. The atmosphere is very cozy, relaxing, warm and inviting. The facial was very personalized for my sensitive needs and left my skin feeling so soft and silky. My next appointment is next week when I will try out a back facial which I'm sure will be amazing! Perfect for this cold drying weather! Thank You Ally      -Julienne B.


I had a wonderful 90 minute massage with Allyson a couple weeks ago. Agree with other reviewers that she makes you feel totally comfortable and has a soothing but firm touch. I was very achey after a personal training session and she helped my muscles relax. She has the greatest personality too. I highly recommend her and I will be back!      -Erkia R.
