REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Brian’s knowledge of anatomy is amazing.

The individualized care and attention
by Lucy on Mar 30
I have been coming to Brian regularly for several years. His massages are the best I have ever had. He has a heated table and heavy blankets that make me feel relaxed. His technique is intuitive and he applies just the right pressure.

Brian's hands are amazing. He's ontime and the room is cozy and clean. I will refer others to him and of course will go back to him again.

Very intuitive and precise. Never fails to find the pain spots and fixes them.
by Sandra on Mar 10
Brian has an intuitive touch that pinpoints areas that I didn’t even know needed attention. I walk a little taller and lighter when I leave his office. He is super!!

I loved feeling good and serene that night. And the following day, I felt mentally alert, physically relaxed, and my emotional monsters had taken a hike. Brian really knows how the body works and what it needs at that given time. Wonderful !!

Brian is very knowledgeable and experienced. His hands and techniques are therapeutic and he is very professional. He made me and my husband feel really comfortable My husband has not felt that comfortable with anybody else and now he looks forward to his appointments

Brian has been so helpful in my quest to avoid plantar fasciitis discomfort and bunion surgery, He did extra research on these issues in order to get to the right muscles to relieve my pain! I have been "almost" pain free now for 3 years, and have avoided the awfully painful recovery from surgery that Dr.'s wanted to do!
