Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Great experience!

    My last appointment with Don (as always) was very professional. He is always well prepared and ready before my arrival. I enjoy his quiet, relaxing and cute massage room. In the past I had some appointments at my home but it wasn't the same. I decided to go back to his place because I found it more relaxing with the colorful wall hangings and relaxing music. He's the best.

  • I had a relaxing experience. The salt booth was nice to finish the appointment with. It does open your sinuses.

    Warm and inviting place. Comfortable atmosphere

  • I have been going here for several years and an QUITE satisfied with my massages. It's been difficult for Don with me having so many problems but he's done a great job figuring out how to give me some much needed relief. I highly recommend him for your massage needs.

    Felt amazing and reasonably priced

  • Unexpected location inside a quilt shop, but I enjoyed looking around after my appointment.

    Excellent service always

  • Cozy and comfortable.

    This was only my second massage so I’m relatively new at it but I relaxed and actually enjoyed it.

Don is very good at what he does.
by Kim on Sep 11
Best massage! I could tell my posture and muscles were transformed. Muscle pain that had kept me from sleeping well for months, did not disturb my sleep last night.
by Julie on Aug 26
Don is great! He takes the time to work with you and customize each massage to fit your specific needs. I would recommend his services!

went in feeling a little uneasy, came out relaxed
by Patti on Jun 03
Overall I have been getting biweekly massages for 17 years. Many people think a massage is a luxury; for myself it is a necessity. I moved up to the Houghton Lake area 6 years ago and finding Don was a REAL blessing. I have many spinal and leg issues and he has been tenacious at working with me to relieve my pain. I know that my body is an unusual case for him due to my issues. There has been times he has done research online to look and find a massage/exercise solution for me. He will try anything professionally to relieve pain (which also causes much stress) to help his clients. I am older than him and I told him he can't retire until I'm gone (lol). Looking for a good massage therapist? Don's your man; he's the best.

As always, Don did an amazing job making me feel comfortable and the actual massage. The best part he always goes above and beyond to make sure all needs are taken care of.

Explaining what and why he was doing different movements. I appreciated that. Made me feel comfortable.

May be good for some but not for me Professional, did a nice job. Definitely less sore today
by Kristin on Feb 14
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.

My first massage ever. Went there because of back pain and stiffness. Don and I talked about why I was there and what he proposed to do to help me. He listened intently and understood my medical history and he made me feel very comfortable.
