May be good for some but not for me Professional, did a nice job. Definitely less sore today

The massage was amazing! Don did an excellent job focusing on problem areas and was very professional. I saw him at the Roscommon location, which was in the back of a store. It was not a “spa” atmosphere, but it was ok. I would definitely get a massage from him again. Will probably try the Houghton Lake location next time.

Mr. Backrub is knowledgeable and skilled. The prices are reasonable and he’s flexible with booking times. I’m hooked!

Don is a professional, kind, patient and willing to listen.

Great guy; professional but with a cool sense of humor. Strong hands and many professional tools to dig out those persistent and cranky muscle issues. In his mind "you're the boss."

Felt amazing and reasonably priced

My first experience with massage, so I wasn't sure what to expect. He explained everything he was doing. Will likely return in the future.

It is very relaxing, and we are beginning to work out the pain that has been bothering me in my elbows and shoulder for some time.

He seems to know his job and worked on my whole body, not just my trouble spots.
