Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Rich was fantastic! Would definitely return and recommend to all.

    Excellent therapist for sciatica and muscle aches as well as general relaxation.

  • Rich is highly skilled, professional and intuitive. I am a Physical Therapist for over 40 years and have had hundreds of body work sessions. I strongly recommend Richard for you or your family.

    Nice setting, very comfortable. Rich is good at what he does. He is very knowledgeable and is willing to share that knowledge.

  • BEST neck massage I ever got (and I've had a LOT of massages over the years!)

    Love it!

  • My massage with Rich was incredible. He is very professional and has considerable knowledge about how our muscles work (and how massage, when done well, can provide relief!). I would highly recommend booking a 90-minute with aroma therapy! I carry my stress in my neck and shoulders... but left feeling like a new person.

    Rich is a first-rate masseuse, professional and courteous at all time. Super knoweldgeable and helpful too. His myofascial release bodywork was fantastic -- it gave the sort of stress relief that a deep tissue massage can do (if you're lucky) without all the sore muscles afterward. So glad he's nearby. Looking forward to my next appointment!

  • Thank you Rich for fitting me in at the end of your busy day-I have been traveling-weather did not cooperate with my plans and I was not able to do the outside hiking etc I had planned. I figured I would just try to get a massage-last minute on a holiday weekend. Called Rich and explained my situation-he was booked-he called me back with in minutes and took me in at the end of his day. Meant so much to me and the massage was great!!!!

    Excellent massage.

Definitely the best massage I've ever had. I could tell that Rich was really paying attention to me - my body, my being, my self - and not just offering a standard 60 minute massage. Rich came highly recommended, and he exceeded even those expectations. Superb - and affordable! What's not to love?!

This is my second visit to see Rich. Both times he has been wonderful. The massage room is a sanctuary and Rich pulls out all of the relaxing amenities. Eye mask, aromatherapy, heated neck wrap, warmed table. There is really good energy surrounding Rich. I have had many massages over my lifetime and the difference between Rich and some others is that Rich embodies a mindful lifestyle and he brings that energy to his work. It is a calling vs a job. He is the real deal.

I had a lot of neck and shoulder stiffness when I came in for my appointment, but when I left I felt instantly better and I woke up the next morning with complete pain relief. When I arrived, Rich really went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with his professionalism and friendly demeanor. It is obvious that he is a very kind and caring person who enjoys helping people. During the massage, I was very impressed with Rich's skills. He is without a doubt the most well-educated masseuse that I have been to, and his knowledge of myofascial release really helped relieve the stress and tension in my neck. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I cannot recommend RPS Massage more highly.

Rich skillfully attacks the tension releasing the knots while soothing the nerves. He’s great about checking to see if he needs to adjust the pressure and if there is any area the client feels needs more attention.

Wow, just wow! Rich is a remarkable human being! Following our remote healing session I was immediately experiencing the positive effects from our time together and was able to move past a plateau of illness that had been holding me back following a breakthrough Covid infection. It was rather miraculous. As a healthcare provider, I wish that the healthcare system would make these types of healing treatments part of the regimen for recovery. Rich is intuitive, empathic, and a true healer.

I haven't had a massage in 10 years, but I used to get them a couple of times a month. This was the best massage I've ever had. Rich was also very knowledgeable about various medical conditions I have and provided information about what I can do to prevent pain rather than treating it. Also, one of my pet peeves is a massage therapist who talks the entire session. Rich definitely did not talk too much. I'm looking at my calendar to see when I can schedule my next massage with him.
