Welcome

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

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • 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've been seeing Manley for about a year now and he helps keep me upright and active. Highly recommend him.

    Would like combination of aromatherapy

  • Just great!

    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.....

  • The best!!!!

    Manley's ability to apply his knowledge of human anatomy is superb.

  • Well done massage must needed. Find exactly which parts of my body needed !

    Manley also gave me great tips to stretch and avoid neck/back pain. Very helpful.

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.
