Simply the best! Better than all the rest.
by Mackenzie on Feb 01
I really appreciated the additional tips and tricks to try at home to help strengthen my hips and back as well as relieve any pain in between appointments. Desmond also offered cupping therapy which I had never tried before and I am so glad that I got the chance. Desmond was also very careful to sanitize and wear a mask to make sure he and his clients stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Desmond was amazing! I haven't had an athletic massage in years and I'm so glad I called. I felt comfortable the whole time and he really listened to all the issues I was having to give me proper targeted therapy!
