Here's part of a review left in May 2011 by Yelp user Mark H:
This is absolutely my favorite place in the Tri-Valley to get a massage. I shopped around quite a bit in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, and even San Ramon. I love this place!!! Each of the massage therapists here pretty much has her own technique so it's hard to pick a favorite, but they are all VERY good. Whether you're into soft touch, deep tissue, or somewhere in between, you'll find just what you're looking for here. They even do back-walking if that's what you need/want...
The owner of the Livermore Health Center is scheduled to have a business permit meeting with Livermore Police Chief Steve Sweeney on Monday.
