Doug is very knowledgeable, professional, and he is always able to alleviate pain/trigger points with his techniques. I always feel better after I leave a session. I would highly recommend Doug.

Save your time and money and don't go to physical therapy. Go to Doug. He is a detective and figures out where the problem is and then works to fix it.

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.

Doug is great. He dialed in on specific spots that no other practitioner has found and used a unique method that helped relieve pain I've had for the past 3 years! No question, go see him!

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 think a lot of effort was put into solving my problem - as yet, it hasn't been solved. I hope to keep working on it.

Doug expertly targeted my areas of tension and gave my muscles a lot of relief, while involving me in the process. It was relaxing and engaging. After assessing and making suggestions, I am confident that I am on a path of greater function, mobility, and healing.

I like Doug's thoughtful and caring approach to my "issues". Besides on the mark therapy, he gave me things to do at home to enhance the good effects, and to hopefully, solve my problems!

Doug explained everything to me in a way I could understand, and really spent the time necessary to help me with my pain. He also followed up and provided me with the information I need to help myself going forward.

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

Doug very obviously knows what he is doing. I went for relief from a specific injury. I was able to go back to work the next day. Can't wait to go back for "relaxation" massage.

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!!

Doug is an extremely knowledgable Thai Body Worker. He is a very professional and caring person. Also, he explains what he is doing and how the muscles correspond with a certain trigger point in the body. I would highly recommend him! J.C. Morris
