Review HighlightsCustomer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait TimeA fantastic massage by Simon. He is so talented in his massage techniques and has helped me feel so much better, with just two treatments.
1/13/22Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait TimeI met Simon for the first time today and told him about a couple aches/pains in my quads muscles and back muscles–the guy is a master. I felt like I could have done cartwheels afterward. Will be back again as often as I can fit it into my schedule.

Simon is *amazing*. I was visiting Palm Springs for a couple of days and wanted a massage as part of my trip. I searched Yelp, stumbled upon Simon, and it was the luckiest “accident.” I’ve had hip pain for years and back pain for months. I got a deep tissue massage, scrub, and cupping (the latter two for the first time), and–wow–I can easily say Simon is a master at all of these. I left so much looser, with no pain, and my skin feeling so soft and glowing.
Simon is so friendly and attentive and positive. As much as it was a pleasure to get massaged by him, it was equally a pleasure talking to him (and I’m not usually a talked during services).
The best part of all is that it’s clear that Simon loves his work and views it as an art. He was telling me about his experience (there are some *big name* spas in it) and his training, and I had no doubt I was getting the best.
I’ll definitely come see Simon every time I come to Palm Springs, and will definitely spread the word to friends heading to PS.
I got a deep tissue massage and European style cupping by Simon. Massage was very professional and he got all of my knots out of my muscles. I felt so much better after my massage. My husband also got a deep tissue massage and cupping and also had a good experience. I would go as far to say that I would drive to Riverside county all the way to Palm Springs to get another massage from him.
I have had many massages all over the world but this is seriously the best massage/body work I’ve ever had in my life. Simon did a combo of Swedish, deep tissue, cupping and lymphatic draining massage in a span of two hours. There were love and hate moments because he really gets in there to work out the knots so if you’re looking to fall asleep maybe don’t get the deep tissue. He knew exactly where i was hurting and which pressure points to get at. simply incredible. He isn’t the cheapest but I don’t even care. I was a brand new person when I left. He is what I call “the body whisperer”. Simon, if you’re reading this, can you please consider moving back to the Bay Area??
As a bodywork/ massage therapist I am always searching for an intuitive therapist to work on me. Simon leaves absolutely no doubt that he is masterfully skilled in his profession. He is also a very kind person which helps the recipient feel at ease. We’re lucky to have found his services during our stay in Palm Springs and look forward to another session when we return.
The real deal. This guy does not mess around. He is super skilled, intuitive, and offered a safe and luxe environment with air purifier, essential oils, and heated table. He is also a physical therapist and I suspect this helped him quickly assess and dive in to trouble spots.
I am on my fourth massage and each one has been therapeutic and unique . I felt comfortable and so relaxing .
Simon is amazing! Truly the best massage and body work I have received. His artistic and sports background combined with superb skill is awesome for athletes. Because of this great experience, I will be traveling once a month to see him specifically. You will not be disappointed!
Simon works wonders. Came to Palm Springs for a few days and my fiancé and I both got a massage from him. Left feeling so relaxed. Spa is clean and new. The sheets on the table are super soft. Highly recommend.1/8/2019Previous review
Simon is the absolute best. I’ve been going to him for almost ten years when he had his own spa in San Francisco. He pays attention to what’s happening with my body and really targets areas that are bothering me. I brought my fiancé to him recently and he was able to iron out the knots and tension in his low back and neck from his travels. Highly recommen

Simon is the best! He is very knowledgeable about how the body works. He’s also very professional. I can’t recommend him enough.

The spa is very peaceful and clean. I had a massage with Simon and was very pleasantly surprised!
It is the best massage I’ve had. Simon tailors the massage to whatever level your body needs and can pressure that you can handle. He has very strong healing hands that remove all stress, and then stretches and aligns your body. This is followed by hot stone treatment and heat therapy!!! You leave very happy and relaxed.
His massage is perfection!!!! I highly recommend that you pamper your body with Simon.
Great for the Mind, Body and Soul. Simon is a master!5*****
I went to Simon for a massage and he was excellent. I have extremely high stress in my life which really gets to me and causes a lot of pain. He was able to work it out which is shocking since no one ever can.

Start your review of Massage By Simon – Salon119.
Vivian V. wrote the same review that I was supposed to write 3 months ago, finally coming back to write what is well deserved. Very few businesses live up to their 5 star rating but this one is deserving. Having spent the last decade in Asia, and been through different therapies for various sports injuries, I felt Simon the highest level of sports med/muscle manipulation type of massage therapy. He compares to sports therapists assisting professional athletes. He has mastered pressure points, anatomy, alignment, muscles, and recovery. He is versed in Asian methods such as cupping, and the holistic approaches. 9/10 massages get are usually disappointing, and I have to say I wish he would move to my city, because I’ve yet to find someone who could compare.1/31/2022
If you want an absolutely amazing massage, book one with Simon Yalniz of Salon 119. Simon is extremely professional, has very strong hands with a gentle approach, and the quality of the massage defines how much experience and training he has had. He is THE BEST!!
What would I do without Simon? I dont know… He is the best massage therapist I have ever been to. There were some that came close but he is always better than the rest. First time i went to him 6 yrs ago by finding him on google. I was pregnant with twins and i had a sciatic nerve issue. I had to find someone who knows how to work with pregnant women. I was in so much pain and could barely walk. It was an hour of hellish pain and bruising afterwards. But he said it will be more sore for few days but should be all gone in a week. I had to take tylenol for a week for pain but exactly in one week i woke up and the pain was simply gone. Since then, i followed him everywhere. Few years ago, I had a pinched nerve in my neck. 9 chiro visits didnt help at all. I went to Simon and after 2 sessions it was all back to normal. Unfortunately, i only go to him when i have issues and again i have to endure pain but i know he will fix anything and he always does.
The word masseuse really does not even begin to cover the breadth and depth of SImon’s knowledge. You can instantly tell that his technique is unlike anyone else’s. He was trained in Europe, where massage is part of overall wellness. He knows how to apply deep slow pressure to release the maximum amount of toxins from the body. He also understands in great detail the skeletal structure, muscle tissue, injuries, even pregnancy massage. He has the expertise of a chiropractor, fitness trainer, medical assistant and masseuse all rolled into one. I’ve been seeing him for years and during that time he’s hardly ever given me the same massage twice. He tailors each massage to exactly what my body needs, whether I’m fatigued, have a yoga injury or lower back pain. He is upbeat, positive, extremely professional and very thorough in addressing your requests. I always leave feeling 5 years younger and the benefits continue for days. He is a vital part of my regular self-care regimen and I recommend him to anyone who wants a massage that is truly customized to their body’s needs.
Simon, what can I say except you are the most talented massage therapist ever! With such a warm and friendly demeanor you’ll immediately feel comfortable and relaxed. Then the real work begins! He’s wonderful at reading what the body needs and provides a true therapeutic massage. Stretching muscles you didn’t even know where there, tension relief, and helping overall blood circulation. I have knots in my back that I thought would never go away. Cue Simon! I don’t think I have ever felt so rejuvenated. Go see Simon, you won regret it!
