Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • This was one of the best massages i have had in a long time. As a professional dancer (and someone who is extremely physical), i desire a masseur that really works through the fascia and provides release/relief to my often sore muscles. The pressure was great and i appreciated the level of care/concern for my body and comfortability. Derek is very strong and also included some wonderful stretches at the end of the experience. i will be back!

    I’ve been seeing Derek for years to help release the tension from a work life at a computer and strength training & running in the after hours. During this pandemic, Derek is going above and beyond with maintaining a safe environment for his clients.

  • I had a sport massage with Derek! He has great skills! He works on the knots in your muscles, so your next exercise wouldn’t be just be walk in the park, but run around the lake!:)

    Great massage, really worked out a few of my super sore spots and showed me a few great exercises to work on. I can’t wait to go back again

  • Derek is an incredibly kind soul as well as an expert massage therapist and wellness practitioner! As a woman I feel 110% comfortable with him. This is a small, Black and queer-owned business I love to support. Self-care!

    Derek is very skilled and clearly cares deeply about offering excellent service and helping his clients feel better. Definitely recommend!

  • I have had a headache for over 3-weeks. I have been given steroids, muscle relaxers, heavy duty allergy and pain meds. Nothing has worked until Derek. He was very responsive to how my body was reacting. I feel much better and am going back. I feel safe and confident about his studio too with his Covid 19 protocols.

    I’ve worked with Derek for many years now. I feel very engaged with his work with me and he is very responsive to my needs and requests. He also takes very extensive precautions regarding COVID and is very serious about it. His home studio is not a spa experience, but clean and comfortable.

  • Derek was very thorough in following safety protocols for COVID-19 while also providing an excellent massage, as always.

    Listened well to my concerns and delivered an excellent massage to address issues.

My first time trying cupping and it was a great experience! I happened to see a sign for sports massage when I was finishing up a workout at Los Campeones- I asked about availability and Derek was able to fit me in on the spot which was not expected but so appreciated! Derek is friendly and kind and knowledgeable about his craft. I will be back next time I am in MN! Thanks Derek!

Derek was very professional and asked me a lot about my life to get to know me and my situations in order to taylor the services to meet my needs. This personal touch was very appreciated and made me feel cared for and seen as a person. I would highly recommend Derek to my friends and family! Thank you for the great work Derek!
