Brian knows how to work tight muscles deeply without too harshly -- much appreciated!

I love how Brian intuitively tunes into my tightest areas & uses various modalities to relieve the tension. I always feel good for days afterwards!

I received a deep tissue massage from Brian that was exactly what I requested. It was great! He's extremely knowledgeable about anatomy and knows how to release those tight muscles.

Brian has a very professional manner, with a discussion of areas that require attention. Proceeding with skill those areas are addressed and one comes out with a deep sense of relaxation and healing.
