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.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Exactly what I needed! Wonderful place!

    A great massage! Manley greeted me warmly and assessed my needs. The room was very clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything he was going to be doing. It was a great massage and I left feeling lighter. Highly recommend!

  • Every part of the body that was massaged Manley explained what/how it worked and affected the other muscles. He is very informative.

    Manley was very professional, knowledgeable and detail about everything and move he made through out my massage. He also took the time to ask me how I was doing during my massage, caring that what he was doing was definitely helping with my physical and mental needs.

  • Manley is great!! I feel like a new person every time I leave.

    I’ve had 100s of massages and body work sessions over my 50 years and Manley’s may be the winner. I’ve been attempting to get relief for a jammed rotator cuff and arm injury for 5 weeks. I left his session with 80% less pain and 80% more range of movement, with a plan for rehab and reassurance that I would heal. I’ll be returning regularly for the full body massage that wasn’t just an “ahhh” relaxing experience but a physiologically transforming one. I recommend very highly!

  • I liked everything about the visit. Mr. Waller took the time to explain every procedure he was performing and why he was doing it.

    I appreciated that Manley explained why he was working on my muscles in different ways. If you have tight problem areas and want a TRULY GREAT massage you should definitely make an appointment with Manley.

  • Outstanding experience, as always. So thankful to have you taking care of me!

    Manley is a skilled professional!

Manley is awesome and so consistent. He has really helped alleviate my headaches, super tense muscles and a few back injuries. Best part is you don’t have to tell him anything he knows and understands the body and it’s connections so well. The stretching and pressure points are the best!!! I’m not a big medicine person and by consistently going to Manley and my chiropractor I don’t use any pain medication.

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!!

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.
