Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • 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.

    I think Rich is amazing. Takes the time to evaluate any concerns or questions. Very professional and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • Best massage I’ve had in years! Richard is an expert and provides a very healing environment! Would give 10 stars if I could!

    the ultimate professional in massage therapy.

  • Five stars are not enough, do the aroma therapy!

    Book Rich. Great relaxing massage by someone who knows what they doing.

  • Rich is a wonderful Massage Therapist. Coming in after a stressful week and a tight back, Rich worked with aromatherapy and deep tissue to work out the stress. In the end, I was feeling relaxed and really enjoyed the massage.

    Rich is awesome! Exceptional understanding of anatomy -- and more. Particularly appreciated the work on my feet -- the best footwork I have had yet!

I wish I had asked you to focus more on my left shoulder--it's still bothering me--not your fault.

Business response:

Thank you for sharing. Let's plan to set aside a few minutes to clearly discuss your goals for your next session prior to starting. Looking forward to continuing our work together!

My shoulder went from hardly mobile to back to normal, thanks to Rich. I trust him to push my body far but without injuring anything. Fantastic results and I feel completely refreshed every time!

Always great to work with you Drew! Thank you for including me as a part of your shoulder recovery program!
