"As a practicing sports medicine and wellness physician, I've worked with all kinds of athletes — from professional sports teams and Olympic competitors, to amateur racers and high school athletes. I've learned that a good massage therapist is invaluable to relieving the muscle pain and tension that can result from a hard training session, an injury, or just plain old stress. Massage Extraordinaire has the most talented, intuitive massage therapists I've ever come across — and with more than 30 years as a practicing sports medicine doctor, that's saying a lot! I recommend Massage Extraordinaire to my patients, my friends and my family members."

"Marsha Selzer is a massage therapist of the highest caliber. She's professional, capable and ethical. I highly recommend her."
Jr. Seau, NFL "All Pro" Linebacker
"I have become one of the many regular customers that Marsha works on. I receive a massage every week. It allows me to gain (slowly) my flexibility back as well as preventing any possible injuries. I play tennis seven days a week and compete on a regular basis. Thanks to the weekly massage, combined with stretching after playing, I live an injury free life. It is obvious to me that Marsha understands what my body needs every time I have a session with her because I never fail to feel re-energized and limber.
Roberto M. Ancira
"I've known Marsha Selzer for over 15 years. As an athletic trainer for NBA athletes, I can attest that Marsha's knowledge of her craft and the level of skill she practices massage, leaves her no equal in her field. I have and will continue to recommend Marsha to both athletes and everyday folk who are in need of massage therapy for rehabilitative, pre- and post-competition or simply relaxation."
Keith Jones NBA Athletic Trainer

"Marsha — I wanted to thank you again for your marvelous massage. As has been true for over 15 years, I always feel dramatically better after our sessions. You always seem to know exactly what to do and how to relieve my pain and get me back on the golf course. My flexibility and range of motion are always improved and I am able to swing better and score better. My golfing opponents are jealous! I simply don't know what I'd do without you. Thank you again."
"I went to Massage Extraordinaire after receiving independent recommendations from two Chargers football players when I injured my hip flexors. After my treatments from Marsha, I was able to run more comfortably and with better form, which resulted in winning a national championship in the 200m and setting a national record on a relay team at the USATF Masters Nationals at LSU in Baton Rouge. I was very happy with my results and found the staff to be incredibly helpful."

She has great hands, a warm heart and truly cares about me. Every Tuesday, after cycling 50 -80 miles, I treat myself to a relaxing, rejuvenating massage. It's wonderful!"

"I have been a client of Marsha's for over 20 years. The soothing, safe, clean environment provides a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Marsha and her minions unwind your tension and stress while tending to any aches and pains you may have. It a truly relaxing experience. I am always ready to be pampered by Marsha and her crew. "It is great to have her as resource to work out the kinks you inevitably get when you enjoy participating in sports and you live in a great outdoors city like San Diego!"
"I was visiting my dad in San Diego and had just made the five hour drive from Las Vegas. I have been training in the gym pretty intensely the past several months, and that combined with the long drive, had tightened my hamstrings so much, you could have played them like a guitar. Sore, sore, sore. We went to my dad's club - the San Diego Tennis & Raquet Club - and Marsha gave me the best massage of my entire life. The pressure was perfect, and she also loosened my hamstrings by moving my legs into a variety of stretches. Fantastic. No more pain. I highly recommend!! I will definitely be back the next time I am in San Diego."
-Jennifer V., Las Vegas
"I've been getting massages from Marsha Selzer for the past two years. I started getting massages since I was playing tennis and pitching for my high school baseball team at the same time. Her massages help me both with preventing injuries and working out soreness. I also run cross country, so Marsha both massages and stretches me so that I can perform at a higher level. I would recommend Marsha and Massage Extraordinaire to other athletes (and non-athletes)!
-Palmer Hayward – College student/client
We were recently in San Diego on business for an apparel trade show and wanted to get a chair masseuse at our booth as a treat for the people attending the trade show. I found Massage Extraordinaire online and they were able to work within our budget and also provided us with two great masseuses for each day of the show. They were extremely professional and wonderful to work with. What an wonderful addition to add to our booth! Thank you for the job well done!!!!
