Dana is wonderful. She has a very calming presence & puts you at ease. She is also highly skilled & gave me one of the best massages that I have ever received. It was a true blessing. You will absolutely not be disappointed.
My Heros! I am a middle aged triathlete who (like many in the sport), has experienced continual problems with calf muscle strains, cramps, and pain. Additionally, achilles tendonitis. I am about to compete in the Texas Ironman Rece at The Woodlands. My training for this event was pretty much on hold as far as running due to Calf and achilles issues. I tried Sports Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Rest, KT Tape...pretty much everything I could think of and was not getting better. Then I found Ady and KAVANA. She and her staff immediately diagnosed my underlying issues and went to work on me. After not running for almost two months, Ady and her staff had me doing my first run (All be it a short one), within 10 days of my first visit. WIthin three weeks, I ran a half marathon, and have been hard at Ironman training ever since.
Thank You Ady and KAVANA! You have helped prepare me to achieve a life long goal. IRONMAN!
Thank you David! We are very proud of you! It has been our pleasure working on you. The other fantastic Kavana Deep Tissue Therapists that worked on David were Patrick Devlin, LMT and Michelle Brown, LMT.
Ady is the one for "Trigger Point" and Myofascial Release.
I have been going to Ady for a super tight neck and clenched jaw every 2 weeks for about 6 months. Every time I go I feel like someone has finally figured out where decades worth of stress have settled in my body.
I didn't need a "typical" massage just for fun, I needed some serious help. Ady has the patience and knowledge to find the right places and to gradually reduce years of damage. I feel like my neck is getting longer and my neck and jaw have gotten a little younger.
Ady has taught me how to "breath through" her work with releasing the tightness in many trigger points so I feel like we are a team when I can feel the "knot" release as she works.
I would recommend Ady to anyone who wants to participate in the process of finding where your stress is and working with her to release it.
Wonderfully consistent experience. Well I have been 4 times already and I have been very pleased each time. I have received many massages, but rarely have I gone somewhere where I have been consistently satisfied with my experience. I like my massages deep and I carry most of my tension in my head, neck and jaws, as well as my hands. I have seen Malena, Neena and Dana. Each lady had her own style, but they all hit the right spots and I walked out feeling better and sleeping better each time. They were great! Malena got deep into neck (wonderful) and showed me some great stretches. Dana had me focusing on my deep breathing and her pressure was perfect. And Neena worked deep into my back and really got into it! I will continue coming back, and would recommend anyone of these ladies. I thought that the space was cute and comfortable and I liked that it was in an older house from the 1920's and not one of those overly done spas.
Not Great not bad. I have to agree that the place really loses a lot of points because it doesn't give you the warm fuzzy feeling of a spa... it's not overly welcoming (sometimes there's NO ONE there to welcome you). Not sure if the other location is better. I'm sure I'll be back to Lexington location at least once or twice more... but only if Patrick is there...
DANA IS AWESOME!. I had a massage last week with Dana and it was unbelievable! She listened to what I needed and she is very skilled! I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Therapeutic massage by Patrick. I was in need of a therapeutic massage to relieve muscle tightness and fatigue! Patrick gave a very good therapeutic massage. Let him know your areas that need more work and he focuses on them if you request. He's also good at identifying areas that may need more attention. Overall a good experience!
Ady Burgida - made a believer out of this doctor!.
As a 50+ year old physician and very serious competitive swimmer, I was more than skeptical when my sports medicine doctor referred me to a massage therapist to fix the chronic pain I was having from rotator cuff tears in my shoulders and bulging discs in my neck. I mean, I never learned anything about massage therapy in medical school and never saw a massage therapist at the various hospitals in which I've worked. So just how much help could one provide?
I had spent endless hours and thousands of dollars with injections, physical therapy, chiropractic care, orthopedists, and sports medicine doctors with little pain relief. But I was so miserable (and my wife was miserable from being with miserable me), I figured, what could it hurt to try.
My doctor specifically referred me to Ady Burgida and told me she was the only massage therapist in Houston who would be able to understand and conquer my problem. Boy, was he right.
I contacted Ady, and --- despite the upcoming holidays --- she promptly worked me into her schedule. I sensed immediately that she was very bright, had a great sense of humor, and a very delightful, very positive personality. The spa --- a quaint two story house they've stylishly converted --- is very conveniently located (just about at Shepherd and 59S), and the spacious massage rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable.
I've had 4 hour-long deep tissue massage sessions, and I've been amazed that Ady can identify painful trigger points in my muscles --- and there were millions ---before I could tell her where they were. I told her she reminds me of this legendary doctor at Johns Hopkins with whom I trained who could diagnose various lung conditions from changes in vibration he could perceive with just the lightest touch of his fingers.
In addition to her diagnostic skills, I have been extremely with her knowledge about myofascial pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, headache, TMJ, and muscle anatomy in general. She is passionate about the healing benefits of massage. I was even more impressed that she came up with a massage plan that systematically released muscle spasms, trigger points, and areas of limited mobility in my neck, shoulders, chest and back. So I put her to work --- and she really works --- on my pain syndrome.
I can't believe that I am now pain free, but not only that, I just recorded the top time in my age group nationally for one of my swimming events. Before Ady started treating me, I had resigned myself to the fact that not only would I have to give up swimming, but I was also going to be in chronic pain. My wife had resigned herself to having a husband who complained of pain all the time.
I've worked with health professionals for 30 years and work with them every day. I've come to recognize the truly gifted diagnosticians and healers. Their gift goes beyond their training and experience --- they have the ability to recognize conditions through touch, listening, and instinct that others can't. Ady falls into that truly gifted category. Plus, she's just an amazing person --- a real delight.
So, as a physician AND a patient, I can't recommend Ady highly enough. She really has been a miracle worker with me.
UN - PROFESSIONAL+ BAD SERVICES+TAKE OFF THAI MASSAGE FROM U.
I HAVE APPOINTMENT FOR THAI MASSAGE WITH PATRIC ,THE ONE THAT I READ FROM COMMENT THAT HE IS GOOD ONE. BUT THE TRUE IS ....?????-*/*-+*-*+-* WHAT !!!!!!!!

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAR A REASON(S) FROM YOU..ADY.!!!!
Dear Davide, I will not use your real name out of respect for your privacy. We are a highly professional establishment, with an excellent record of customer service and therapeutic massage. Patrick informed me once you had arrived that he had massaged you in the past, at his previous place of employment, and unfortunately had had an uncomfortable and unprofessional massage experience with you. As a result Patrick did not feel comfortable massaging you on the day of your appointment. Davide, I respect my massage therapists and trust them when they say they are not comfortable working on a client. I also think that Patrick handled himself and the situation very kindly, politely and professionally. I am very sorry for the fact that you were offended by the fact that Patrick would not massage you. Wishing you peace, health and happiness. Ady
Truly Theraputic Massages. I have been receiving massage treatments from Ady for a few months now. Her knowledge, technique and style are the best I have ever experienced. I am a TMJ sufferer and have had cronic jaw, neck and shoulder pain for over a year now. Ady has been able to pinpoint my troubled muscles easily, and over time she has worked many of them back to health. Her wholistic approach, treatments and tips that she shares for me to take home have changed my life. I highly recommend TMJ or chronic pain sufferers to give her a try!!!! It could change your life too!
