"If you suffer from real pain issues this is the place to get a real result. I was visiting my parents in Houston last week and made my first appointment at the Petite Retreat. Chrysti and her knowledgeable staff really understand the human body and how to treat for pain. I received three massages in five days and am now able to get up straight in the morning. I suffered chronic lower back pain for the last ten years and nothing and no one could seem to help me. I need to go back to Houston and The Petite Retreat to finish my treatments and I recommend this place for anyone that would like true relief that only a good massage can give. I was told that they also specialize in Couples Retreats. The place is small and tucked away in the Heights. There are not as many amenities as a major destination resort spa, like a sauna, steam, gym and pool but the massage is top notch. Don't miss this if you need real work."  Citysearch Review

“IF YOU WANT REAL HEALING BODYWORK!”
5 of 5 stars
Reviewed June 5, 2013

While visiting my parents in Houston last week I booked a massage at the Petite Retreat in the Heights Section of Houston. The spot is clean, quaint, friendly and definitely not over the top as far as a comparable Destination Spa with a sauna, steam and the like. What is over the top is the body healing treatment. Chrysti Sherwood, the owner, definitely understands how ones body works and knows how to get to the pain. I have had chronic lower back pain for over ten years now and after just three visits I am much more mobile and do not have the same morning pain as before I had Chrysti and her competent staff work on me. I highly recommend to anyone that suffers real discomfort and wants a genuine massage make an appointment and visit the Petite Retreat. I was told that they specialize in teaching couples how to massage each other and in couples massage as well.

“Small Business, Huge Surprise!”
4 of 5 starsReviewed May 15, 2013

First off, you can not compare this place to your run of the mill corporate massage parlors. The facility is actually small, but you are going for a massage, not aerobics or yoga. Plus, you will be face down in the dark for the majority of the massage. It's definitely worth the experience!

Cons: 
1. I was able to map the location using Google Maps and it's actually where Google puts it. However, the signage is small and you have to be in the process of looking for it, otherwise you will miss it. (Behind the beauty salon, use gate as if you are going into the back yard)

2. There's not exactly a check in desk, so you walk in thinking you are in the wrong place if no one is there to welcome you. 

Pros: 
1. The best part I enjoyed about the place is that I didn't feel like a number. When you are checked in, you are asked how do you enjoy your massage, level of pressure, areas you may want more attention to. This is done even after you have filled out the form. It's a nice personal touch. 

2. The therapists...are awesome! I've had massages other places and they were great. But this one was...I'll just say that they found every knot in my back and shoulders. Walked out feeling like jello. (Just a warning...be specific about the pressure you desire. Pain threshold is subjective)

3. The snacks and mimosas that are provided before the massage are a really nice touch. I'm sure it's covered in the price of the massage, but it's better than just getting a magazine while waiting for your therapist. 

I will definitely return!
