Incredible. Super friendly staff, amazing services, and a great environment. I've had several massages from mainstream to independent places, and this was one of the best. My therapist Izzy was very professional and also kind. I felt like I got an actual therapeutic massage. My body felt better and areas of soreness were targeted. Not just pure stress relief.

My wife and I got a couples massage with Jess and Izzy for an anniversary weekend getaway to Durham. As soon as we walked in, we were welcomed warmly and given an overview of the options we had for the massage. Everything about Auroraflow is welcoming, comfortable, and inclusive. We were tremendously impressed and would highly recommend.

This is my new favorite happy place. It is so great to find great practitioners in a welcoming, inviting space! Even though it is near the Durham frwy, it is surprisingly quiet and chill inside. The playlist is always mellow and never annoying. So many nice personal touches - besides all the friendly people, the art is beautiful, the rooms are painted with amazing themes, you can pick a complimentary essential oil for your massage if you want... This is my new go-to place for relaxation service!

The staff at Auroraflow work is impeccable, the space is lovely and welcoming, and everyone is inclusive. My husband and I both receive therapeutic massage and Thai massage - both great. We are both members which is a great deal, and a way to make sure we take care of ourselves.

I recently got a 90 min sports massage, I am writing this review a little over 24 hour after. I feel amazing! I got my work done by Hayley, she got in and fixed all of my tension points and made me feel comfortable. I feel like a completely new human and will be using this service again soon!

SO WONDERFUL !! I received a therapeutic massage from Patience! They were so gentle and intentional. Communication skills 100%. Their touch was intuitive and intelligent- I could tell their knowledge of the body / anatomy was vast! Aromatherapy was included, the space with well curated and cozy, and I will definitely be back. What a treat!! 🙏⭐️🙏⭐️🙏⭐️🙏

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. This was both of our first time ever getting a massage. 10/10 the experience, hospitality, and environment was just amazing. I highly recommend coming here. Jess and Izzy were both great and tended to our needs.

Auroraflow is truly a safe haven for queer folks and a mind/body relief center for all. My massage therapist, Patience really took the time to ask about, listen to and address my areas of concern. I received a very effective AND relaxing treatment. Truly phenomenal! The space is beautiful, the music is good and the vibes are immaculate✨

I got one of the best massages of my life with Patience. They consistently checked in with me and were so body-aware and considerate. They paid special attention to the areas that I had mentioned bothered me and tailored the experience to make it exactly what I asked for. I also appreciated that they employ gentle range of motion during their massage - it was different in the best way.

I have been to Auroraflow a few times now for waxing with Christine and most recently for acupuncture with Katie! Both services were kinda nerve-wracking for obvious reasons but I've never been made to feel more safe and welcomed than at this Spa!! Christine is incredible - so fast, professional and uplifting! I left with direct instructions for aftercare, a few awesome samples and feeling super confident! I can't go to anyone else for this now! Katie was so knowledgeable and made me feel right at home telling her all my health woes. She really listened to my needs and came up with a treatment plan we both were in full agreement with. I left my appointment with Katie with my nervous system reset and relaxed for the first time in literal years - I can't express how priceless that was for me! I will 100% be back for more, I'm excited to get a massage soon!

Auroraflow is definitely my new go-to spa in Durham! We are lucky to have such an affirming and safe place for the LGBTQ+ community. Everything was fantastic, from the artistic vibe, the soothing lights and colors, and the super friendly staff.. Jessmary did my massage and she was very knowledgeable and kind, and did a great job focusing on the areas I was having discomfort. I will be recommending Auroraflow to all my friends!

If you want to feel welcomed and loved before even meeting people--go here. Auroraflow isn't just an amazing spa experience, it's a place to go and truly relax. The staff makes you feel super comfortable, it's exceptionally clean, and everything about it is professional yet compassionate. But, beyond all of that, this place is so cool inside. Each room has a different theme, and you get to pick your music, lights, and the ambiance you want. I highly recommend taking a Delta 8 gummie before to relax and vibrate with the space. Also--if you're lucky enough to meet the owner and CEO, everything about the space and vibe just sense. I will be back! XOXO

The team at Auroraflow are committed to offering LGBTQIA+ inclusive and affirming care. Not only do they offer a wide-range of amazing massage and other wellness experiences, they now offer scar tissue massage which can be incredibly helpful for those who have had top surgery, C-sections, and other surgical procedures. As a queer clinician and owner of a mental health practice primarily serving LGBTQIA+ clients, I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Auroraflow to others seeking an inclusive and affirming wellness environment. Keep rocking, y'all!

This was my first time checking out Auroraflow and I was not disappointed! I had my massage with Jessmary, who was very polite and professional before and after the massage. It was an excellent overall experience, have been telling my friends to set up appointments and I will surely be back again!

What an amazing spot; chill and relaxing vibe. Love everything they stand for and I appreciate them going the extra mile for comfort. Jessmary focused on the areas we discussed but also made sure the rest of my body wasn’t forgotten. Have had a hard time finding a new massage place to go after moving here but, I’ve definitely found it.

I cannot say enough good things about everyone at Auroraflow! I've had wonderful experiences with all the staff and truly believe this is a special space dedicated to deep community care. The authenticity of listening I've felt when getting a massage has been incredibly supportive, comforting and healing. I'd recommend over and over to anyone seeking thoughtful and integrated health!

Christine is wonderful and have a top notch relaxing exfoliation facial! The exfoliation facial wasn’t harsh or abrasive either which I had kinda expected from my old days of using an apricot scrub, no worries on that I won’t ever do that again ahaha. Left my skin feeling super soft and rejuvenated. She has a magical touch. I also had my eyebrows cleaned up as well and they came out nicely reshaped. The rooms were warm and inviting and the staff who greeted me were very friendly as well. Also as a fat/larger bodied person I felt comfortable on the table and I fit into the wrap they had me put on to take my shirt off for the facial.

This was my first time getting Ashiatsu and scar work. Hayley made sure to educate and talk with me through the process. The massage was very relaxing and allowed my body to release the tension and stress it was holding onto. The scar work was what I really needed. My mobility has been minimal as the tightness increased. After the scar work, it felt like I was coming into my body since surgery. I could feel some of the spaces that were numb regain feeling, less itchy, sensitivity, burning and less electrical pulses. It feels less hard to push through my chest to straighten my back now. Thanks Hayley! I also appreciate how inclusive the space is. I felt welcomed and comfortable. My partner got a massage from Patience and felt invited and comfortable in the space and got some great advice on how to care for her body after massage.

As a trans person I was thrilled to find this place- it’s so nice when you get a massage to know the person doing such an intimate service sees and respects you for who you are and that you’re totally safe and in your community. I’ve seen Patience twice now for massage treatment because of my chronic pain and back spasms, and I’m very impressed. They have walked the line between doing deep work on years worth of knots, tension and pain, while never leaving me overwhelmed afterward. I’m extremely sensitive to massage, and in the past every massage therapist I’ve had has actually hurt or injured me, and I leave feeling terrible because it was too much. Patience really listens though, and I can actually enjoy and relax into the experience knowing I’ll come out feeling much better in my body, not worse. I have some underlying medical stuff going on and so I really appreciated that before my first appointment Patience spent some time going over details to make sure I could safely receive massage- they know what they’re doing and the risks involved with medical complexities and seemed very thorough in ensuring they’re proceeding safely. I like that you have the option of choosing an essential oil for aromatherapy, but that unless you choose one for your own session there’s no noticeable scent in the building. The oil goes into a tissue in the table, not a diffuser. For people with scent sensitivities I think that’s an important consideration. I also love that everyone I’ve seen there has been masked in an N95; I can’t mask due to a medical condition but that makes me extra grateful to see the people around me being careful for me and each other! This makes the space feel that much safer for disabled folks and higher risk people. Overall, I’m really impressed by the lovely space and lovely staff. I have weekly sessions booked a month out now, which is an investment into myself I wouldn’t normally make!

Second time for a massage at Auroraflow. My massage therapist, Patience, was awesome & I had another wonderful experience. They went above and beyond to make sure the massage was within my comfort level. Looking for to my next appointment!

I had an amazing time at Auroraflow, with a massage from Castle and a facial from Christine. The space is so incredibly gender-affirming and size-inclusive, and the murals and decor are just beautiful. The aromatherapy included with the massage is a great touch, and the massage tables were heated! I'll definitely be back again.

Aurora Flow is an incredibly welcoming and warm space and I cannot recommend getting massages with Izzy W. and facials with Nik enough. They both are very talented and do an incredible job. I'm very happy I became a monthly member.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! I had the best massage that I’ve ever had with Patience. We had a small talk before the massage to get all of my preferences, and they checked in periodically throughout the massage to make sure I was comfortable and to ask if anything needed to be changed (it didn’t but it was nice that they asked). I will absolutely be returning again soon. Thank you for an amazing and relaxing afternoon!

I just had my second sports massage with Izzy and wow, 10/10 stars. They did such an amazing job, were kind and considerate, really helped me relax, and worked out some serious soreness and tension from my regular weight lifting. Also, the entire studio is super welcoming and cozy. I am so glad Auroraflow has opened in Durham - what a gem of a place. I will definitely be a regular here now!
