Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Craniosacral Therapy
This session is best to release tension headaches and migraines that a person suffers from on a repeated basis. There are many ways do perform techniques in craniosacral therapy. This includes working out the mandible to release mitigate issues in the jaw, balance the axis, full cervical & occipital neuralgia release.
Esalen Massage
Esalen Massage is just like Lomi Lomi or my Qi Gong Therapy. But in my session I incorporate Tai Chi and real Qi Gong Massage techniques in soft luminescence and soothing music that leaves you completely free of all stress from daily life. This is by far the best relaxing massage session you may have ever get in your life.
Myofascial Release
Myofascial release is included in the Pain management, sports massage and bodywork. Its a technique used to help the muscle release through all other processes and mitigation in a massage session.
Neuromuscular
The nervous system. Its how you feel. From the predicaments of degenerative nerve diseases affect many of your body's activities, such as balance, movement, talking, breathing, and heart function. Many of these diseases are genetic. Sometimes the cause is a medical condition such as alcoholism, a tumor, or a stroke. Other causes may include toxins, chemicals, and viruses and accident that causes nerves to shut down or become pinched in muscle bundles, ligaments and joints. Sometimes the cause is not known. Degenerative nerve diseases include, Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic lateral, sclerosis, Friedreich's ataxia, Huntington's disease, Lewy body disease, Parkinson's disease, Spinal muscular atrophy. Degenerative nerve diseases can be serious or life-threatening. It depends on the type. Most of them have no cure. Treatments like massage with joint manipulation may help improve symptoms, relieve pain, and increase mobility by releasing the nerve and improving nerve responses.
Reflexology
One of the best massages out there happens to be a nice foot massage. The process of real Chinese reflexology takes about 30 minutes to an hour per foot. I start with the calve -the muscle that operates the foot, working out any causes of tension of the foot. The foot is very complex. In reflexology there are many holistic ideas that pertains to your organs. Science has demonstrated this concept to be untrue and was debunked. In my reflexology, you will get the best therapy according to how the anatomy of the foot should work and mitigate any issues to get it there. This therapy works very well for runners, jumpers, skiers and people who are on their feet for too long.
Hot Stone Massage
Here at SOLOR, we use Shiva Stones for our session. They are one of a kind stones and give the best stone massage you may ever received. They are 3.5 lbs each and can do very deep tissue kneading. They can be steamed for a nice hot stone sensation or we can start of using it as cold stone massage and are great for the summer heat. These stones will get very warm on their own. So far only a very few massage therapists in the entire North American Continent uses these stones. I have personally specialized in this to give people a new stone massage that you may love to come in for.
Sports Massage
Fully trained and experienced in proper bodywork. Bodywork consists of stretch and active stretch to release muscular tension through out the body. Helps with mobility, body balance, gait posture, pain from tension and tightness, restless leg syndrome and much more. I have worked on many active sports enthusiasts and Olympians. MMA, Golfers, Tennis pros, Baseball teams, football players, bikers, hikers, runners, swimmers and so on. I have gained much knowledge through much research on how to treat each sporting individual to give the best therapeutic massage available by knowing how a persons body works during these activities. During the sessions consultation, I will be able to help and improve a person game.

He does a great job digging deep and smoothing out the knots. I also appreciate the stretching during the massage as well as having some stretching exercises to do at home.

Vernon really understands the body well. He doesn't just massage you, he gives you what your body needs. We as people do not always know what that is. I decided going into the appointment that I was going to trust whatever he did to my body and I have never felt the type of immediate relief that Vernon provided! Thank you so much!

The massage was a bit vigorous, and he probably should have clipped his fingernails a bit more, but it relieved my pain and I felt he was very knowledgeable about his craft.

Vernon has strong hands, and is able to really work out the kinks. I would appreciate it if more massage lotion was used, as his hands felt fairly dry and rough on my skin. There were a couple of times that he urged me to deal with a fair amount of pain as he worked on me, and I'm not sure I'd allow that again.

Vernon was very professional even though surprised by "back to back" massage with no break in between... It was my first ever "real" massage and it was "amazing" although the next day I became introduced to all of those muscles that for years I've taken for granted! ;-)....

Vernon is by far the best massage therapist out there. Most just lightly massage all over abd give the same massage to everyone. He applies very good pressure, works specific trigger points, does phenomenal stretching for the muscles, and really works the needed areas. The room is a very relaxing environment, cool music, candles etc. Cant say enough good things.

Since moving to Colorado over a year ago, I have been searching for a massage therapist who listens to me, understands my issues as they relate to my body/mind as a whole, and then uses a combination of techniques to treat me. I have finally found that in Vernon! (I have suffered from Lyme Disease and its residual effects for several years, and I am also very active.) I left my first session with less pain and more range of motion thanks to his combination of fascia massage and bodywork. I look forward to working with him to address not only my acute issues but also my chronic pain.

Very grateful to find someone that has a natural therapeutic gifting. After a major car accident a year ago I was impressed with this man's ability to help lesson depression, work with the damaged muscles in my leg after a broken fibula and tibia in a way that matched or was better than a therapeutic massage I received during rehabilitation by a physical therapist. He worked the muscles so well around some deep scaring from a puncture wound in my leg that the bruising I thought maybe permanent was visibly lightened after my massage. His advice and knowledge was greatly helpful and hope filled. The hand full of massages I have experienced before these last two from Mr Burgess put them to shame and I am deeply thankful to have experienced some relief from depression and pain. Just for perspective I only decided to get a deep tissue massage after my pain was to the point I was lying on the ground trying anything to get relief. After my first hour massage I was truly shocked that massage could have the impact on pain that it did. He has a gift that is rare and for those of faith know comes from heaven. Thankful

Its very rare to find a therapist who will do the deep and detailed work on muscles and body structure ...not only for relaxation, but also pain management. Vernon does that kind of work and is capable in this way -- and takes pride in offering good care when you are on his table.

I think Vernon has an unusual skill set, so if you're just looking for relaxation, it probably doesn't matter what massage therapist you go to. If you're looking for healing of very serious, literally knotty problems, often lingering for years at a time, then Vernon seems to be your man.

My hour and a half session with Vernon was as relaxing and pleasant as could be expected from someone, who, like myself, arrived in a lot of pain and with a great deal of physical stress. Vernon enthusiastically sorted it all out. I have MS and arrived having muscle spasms for many weeks that were not responding to muscle relaxor-type pain medication. It was after he moved off the areas of my body he worked on that I felt the benefit, and these were a true relief. The benefits of the session with Vernon exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him as a massage therapist.
