About Us

Welcome!

Instinctive Bodyworks is a therapeutic massage practice founded on the belief that we can stimulate the body's instinctive healing abilities to restore wellness and balance for optimal physical performance.

It requires manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body -- the muscles -- to alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasms and stress. When combined with bodywork, which involves touch techniques such as movement and re-patterning to affect structural changes to the body, overall health, wellness and prevention is achieved.

Let Instinctive Bodyworks be your partner in obtaining optimal physical performance whether you are currently experiencing muscle discomfort or simply desiring to maintain your physical health.

Manley is amazing! I have been suffering with horrendous neck pain and headaches for weeks. Manley's thorough knowledge and skill made immediate improvement. Today, is two days later and not only do I still not have a headache, but my neck is feeling progressively better.

Manley has amazing technical skills and uses them very well. AMAZING!!! His massage work is definitely worth returning for!! I too am a massage therapist and have had many-many massages and Manley at 3 years in is far better than professionals in the industry for 15 years or more! He had an excellent education and uses it all. I'm wondering when I can next go!! I am one for simply good bodywork massage and Manley definitely provides that. GO SEE HIM!! The ambiance of a space is not as important for me personally. However, a few minor touches to the massage room aesthetics and some outside noise control will keep those who recognize great bodywork as well the refinement of a healing massage space coming back all the same. I'll definitely be back!!

I came in with pretty severe low back and hip pain. I left in near tears, because I finally experienced some measure of relief after dealing with this pain for nearly a year. I'm on the road to recovery thanks to Manley's help! I can't wait until our next session.....

Manley was a true professional! He asked questions to access my condition, but more importantly he listened to my concerns. We developed a treatment plan that would help be able to move more freely without pain. This was my first time getting a deep tissue massage and I have to admit that it was quit intense, but Manley was respectful of my comfort zone. The next day, he checked on me to see how I was feeling – I iced as instructed and did my stretches – a little sore, but the following day I felt like a new person! I look forward to working with him!

My massage with Manley was magnificent. Between hunching over my computer and lugging my suitcase, purse and computer bag through airports, I acquired my fair share of taxed muscles. Manley, very meticulously found and kneaded out the tension in my neck, shoulders and back. He found trigger points that I didn't even know were there. The first day I was a little sore, but on day two I felt great!! My range of motion was back and my energy was restore. Instinctive Bodyworks has become a regular part of my health regime.
