REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Brian is very good at customizing his massage to my exact needs of that day. He is very knowledgeable about the body, how muscles work together, and how my daily habits can affect my overall comfort and vitality.

This is absolutely the BEST way to get massage!! I can have my holds and my work too! I love that both Brian and Victoria are loving, strong and work with intention. Stating an intention at the beginning of my session has been wonderful because then we can all concentrate on the same task and results are drastically enhanced! I appreciate that they work on what I NEED providing me with a unique and wonderful experience.

Brian was extremely thoughtful and careful. I came in for a massage and after reviewing my medical history he suggested that we should post pone until I got clearance from my doctor. I thought it was professional, thoughtful and careful. While I waited for my partner to have his massage, Brian helped me to relax by sharing with me light therapy goggles. The space was relaxing and welcoming and I was happy that he was safe in his decision making with my body. I will definitely be returning.

I immediately trusted Brian's intuition, knowledge and skills which have been very helpful for a painful shoulder. He offered good self care tips and and is fun and comfortable to work with.
