Rodger was so sweet and professional! He works wonders and was able to attack my lumbar pain. Will definitely go back next month for those magic hands. I highly recommend them.

This was my 1st sports massage and oh what I've been missing lol loved the whole experience walking in it was warm and inviting I just sat down and took a deep breath then Rodger showed me to my room and I didn't really explain what I needed he just took over and found my troubles. Stress level was a 0 my body felt like it had a make over Ty Finish Line and Ty Rodger for the sports massage I definitely will be returning.

Rodger is the best!!! Rodger is great at traditional soothing relaxing massage but for the times I actually have an injury or mysterious pain, Rodger is the master at healing therapeutic massage. His touch is extraordinarily intuitive,. He listens closely and is able to find "ground zero" to work his magic. Rodger's table stretching techniques are incredible! He also helps me understand the anatomy of my pain and what I am doing to create the tightness (like sitting wrong!!). Once I fell and twisted my ankle and did a number on my knee. The swelling was horrible and for a week I could hardly walk. After suffering for a week I went to Rodger and he worked on my ankle and knee with essential oils pushing the swelling away from the bone and after 30 minutes concentrating only on the ankle and knee, I could walk. I could go on and on and on but I think I'm about to run out of characters!!!!

Absolutely nothing to "dislike"! Roger is very skilled, and somehow I was happy to pay for all the pain, plus add a tip:). I hope to make this a regular appointment. My wife is a diabetic, had a stroke several years ago, plus she ihas constant back and hip pain. I will be sending her to Roger also.

If there is anyone who is more compassionate, creative, curious, communicative, appropriately hilarious and flat out brilliant in this industry, I'd be shocked. I have two conditions that no one in Western or Eastern medicine has been able to do a darned thing about -- including several "experts." In ONE SESSION Rodger changed everything. It hurt like heck, but I walked out feeling closer to "normal" than I had in a long time. And I believe it's because he truly listens with his ears, his hands, and mostly his heart. I finally have hope. I can't thank him enough other than to try to find some way to pay it forward in my own life.

Rodger was very professional and took into account what was going on and what I do in a normal day. He then figured out what was going on and was able to improve it just after one visit. I will definitely be going back to see Rodger for further adjustments.

Everything was pretty good. Wasn't sure what to expect, and Roger took care of everything. We had an issue with Christmas music playing, but it was funny. Asked why anyone would buy two groupons when they don't know if they'll like the service or not, and he knew I bought two lol. Well worth the full price and I'll be going back once my groupons are used. My shoulder feels like new nearly.
