My session with Doug went too fast but before I left I scheduled another one for the next week. I felt that Doug evaluated my problem and listened to me. He was kind, knowledgeable and professional with a bit of humor added in. He followed up his suggestions by emailing me certain information before the day was over. I would highly recommend his services to others who need massage therapy.

Amazing results! Recommending Doug to everyone I know. So grateful for Doug's patience and expertise. He's truly gifted. I've had a painful and stiff neck for 3 months and after various types of treatment Doug is the only person that has been able to help.

Amazing. Kind. Knowledgable. Saw results right away. I went to my chiropractor following the session with Doug and my doctor said that in 14 years he'd never seen my body as centered as it was.

Awesome and so knowledgeable!! Wear leggings, light pants and if you wear shorts wear bike shorts or something underneath… you get into some "interesting" positions.

I came to your studio in pain and after two sessions I am well on my way to recovery. Also I appreciate the information which allows me to work on the problem myself between sessions. My wife is fastidious and she was wondering about the sheets. If they are changed between sessions you should tell the women anyway. However you do a great job and I am very grateful for all of your assistance. - Jay

I frequently get massages because someplace on my body is always aching. They feel good at the time, but afterword, as I go about my day, all the tension and aching returns. After seeing Doug Ringwald once for pain and stiffness from an ankle injury, my ankle feels almost normal, and the relief has been maintained! Doug is remarkably knowledgeable! I will be returning soon for help with some of my other aches and pains very soon!!
