Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Greatest massage ever! Roy is extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I felt comfortable and relaxed. Looking forward to my next appointment!

    I am so happy with the experience in every way. I appreciated that we discussed my medical history and struggles with pain first. All the information was used to target where I was having pain and it made me feel like I was really being taken care of for my specific needs. I felt very good after the therapeutic massage and had almost no pain. I came in wearing a back brace but walked out not needing it for the rest of the evening. I am a young woman and I was very nervous at first getting a massage from a man. But I felt very respected by Mr. Milligan. He conducted everything very professionally. I always felt appropriately draped and comfortable. I was able to relax and focus on healing. I have had very few massages in the past and it was because of the expense and not really noticing a tremendous difference in my health. But I noticed such a drastic pain relief and feeling of peace I am probably going to become a regular client now with Mr. Milligan. I really feel this is going to make a big difference in my health. I'm very grateful for his level of skill and ability to listen to what is needed for my specific needs in my body.

  • Highly recommend!

    Always relaxing and gets all the knots out

  • Roy doesn't have a "routine" massage-- he really focuses on what you need in the moment and has no problem adjusting on the fly. He's very skilled and intuitive.

    I always get the best massage here well worth the time and wait

  • Great experience from start to finish.

    Roy is amazing, highly recommend this place!

  • I thought everything was tip top. Very professional and concern for patients comfort

    Very pleased. Will return!!!

Really good massage. I was pretty sure I paid for an hour, it seemed like I got about 45-50 minutes though.

Business response:

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. Appointment times are 50 minutes hands on with 5 minutes pre appointment for going over any intake information, focus areas, getting ready and 5 minutes post for getting dressed and check out.

I appreciate the way Roy works with you to provide a massage which is both relaxing and therapeutic. He takes his cues from you, allowing for a completely silent and restful experience or a more talkative and informative experience. He listens to you and your body to customize the massage for maximum benefit. All of this for a great value, I signed up for a monthly membership and it just keeps getting better.

I was anxious about a male massage therapist because I had never had one before but I am glad I took a chance because I felt that the the amount of pressure I was able to get with my massage was very good. Roy was professional and although at first I was uncomfortable, he made me feel better by talking me through my massage. One suggestion I would make is perhaps asking a client about their preference of essential oil used during their massage would be nice. Thanks.

I first went to Roy with a Groupon, and he is one of the few that I’ve kept going back to. He makes sure that your comfort is first and that any pressure change requests are not only welcome, but done instantly. I have started going monthly as I get rather beat up in my workout routine, and he alsways asks if there’s different areas that require attention. I’d highly recommend Roy to anyone who needs either a relaxing or deep tissue massage.
