Here's what our clients are saying


  • He did great !! He asked where your main concerns were but he still worked on the other parts of body too because in some way they all connect to where your getting the pain. At end of session you are completely relaxed!

    I liked the pressure of my massage.

  • Gentle touch

    Always knows where to focus

  • Definitely will come back!!! Relax!!Professional!

    Great massage, the noise from the piano lessons across the hall was distracting.

  • Excellent massage. Respectful, knowledge and attentive. Worth every penny. I will be scheduling monthly massages with Bruce for now on.

    Overall a great experience! Cool quiet peaceful and relaxing. I highly recommend Bruce!

  • Bruce is by far, the best massage therapist I have EVER had!!! And I don't say that lightly, because I've had hundreds of massages over the last 25 years.

    Very relaxing and professional

Bruce is very professional and really listens to his customer's wants and needs. I have been to other massage therapists, but I believe he is the most skilled. He used techniques that I have never experienced from anyone else to break the tension in my back. I highly recommend him.

This was my first visit, to be honest I was a bit confused and little freaked out. it was a little difficult for me to find the "room". When Bruce showed up and opened the door I was surprised to see that it was simply a single room with a massage table and some other furniture. But once I met Bruce and we started talking i was completely at ease. Bruce was extremely professional. The relaxing and calm sounds made it impossible to hear the things going around in the rooms next door. The massage itself was great! Extra attention was given to the areas that were bothering me. If I wanted/needed more or less pressure all I had to do was ask. I plan to visit Bodywork By Bruce again in the near future.

Bruce really works with you to find the right amount of pressure that you are comfortable with. He checks in occasionally, but lets you enjoy the massage experience without a lot of chit chat.

I have been seeing Bruce for many years. He is very skilled, professional and personable. I've actually become a family friend as he goes above and beyond. My only caution: Depending on time of day there are piano lessons down the hall

Bruce is an amazing person and professional. He takes care of your body with caution and gives its best relaxation it had been carving for some time a while. He details out what to focus on before gets started and delivers the best accordingly. He also have a handful of life time advices to your body and health after he is done with the massage as a tip for you, as an honored customer. I recommend his service with no reservation.

Bruce is just a great guy. Although Bruce is a massage therapist, for me he is my physical therapist also, finding all my sore spots and making my muscles feel good. Bruce does a very relaxing massage and has the nicest massage room that just feels like home.
