REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Gary on Oct 19
I have been seeing Brian weekly for many years, and find him to be the best massage therapist ever. He is attentive to every physical problem, using the perfect touch, techniques and pressure to achieve the best results. He is pleasant, personable and professional at every visit. Highest Marks.

Brian is extremely knowledgeable and skilled in the art of massage. I’ve been seeing him for over 3 years.

Brian is the most skilled massage therapist I've ever encountered - and that's saying a lot because I have been a life long massage devotee! Really experienced, very kind and professional. He's done a wonderful job with his new studio, making it Covid-safe and comfortable. I am grateful that he is back!

Brian has a real talent. Getting old and sore a lot, I booked an appointment and was blown away about how good I felt even days later. He seems to have improved circulation to my feet and now feet are not swollen. Definitely going back.

Brian is one of the best massage therapists I have ever had...I am 74 years old and had many! He has been my therapist for 6 years and I am SO glad to have him back after he was shut down for a year due to pandemic regulations..sigh!!

Brian is a very good massage therapist. He listens to his clients, is always respectful, and does his best to ensure a good massage experience. I'm very glad he is back in business, although the new location is less convenient. But I'm so glad he's making the effort to restart his business -- I missed him!

I’ve been coming to Brian for almost three years - and even more so now with aches and pains that come with working from home. I always leave feeling relaxed and even with decreased aches and pains. Brian is professional, talented, and truly an all-around good person. I highly recommend his services.
