Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Chris, is very talented and great at what he does.

    Hard to find a great deep tissue/ sports massage. Chris does an incredible job.

  • I have hired Mr. Chris to help with my daughters single C scoliosis. My daughters first day of treatment with Mr. Chris, she left feeling no pain in her hips or back. Even coming home from work that affords her no physical breaks off of her feet. I will continue the treatments we have discussed and continue to change our treatment plan as progress grows. I compare his skill, knowledge and professionalism as the needle in the haystack in the professional medical therapeutic bodywork industry. I will continue to update my feedback for others who are looking to help out themselves or loved ones with treatments that actually work. I highly recommend his services for people who want treatment done right, the first time around. (and he actually worked on my neck at the end of my daughter's treatment cause he saw my posture favouring a sore area of my traps. He's a Gem.

    I've been suffering from back pain from scoliosis and disk problems for 15 years, and have relied on massage therapy to relieve my pain. Chris is one of the best massage therapists I've worked with. He was great!

  • I am very pleased with my experience of working with Chris. He is very professional and pushes me to do my best! He is very supportive and has great training skills!

    He seemed very caring about my health problems

  • Did an excellent job stretching and deep muscle message preparing me for my upcoming 1/2 marathon. My only complaint is that he was 20 minutes late. This is not professional and doesn't seem to respect his client's time. I was already warmed up prior to our scheduled appointment so we could start right on time. He did an excellent job following up after our session to see how I was feeling and offered great advice leading up to my race. If he could get his time management under control, he would be a "grand slam".

    Wonderful relaxing massage!!!

  • Keeping up the intensity when he had to work harder than normal

    Everything was wonderful. Chris is very knowledgable in bodywork and massage. I highly recommend him for sports massage.

Business response:

Thanks for the feedback! I usually don't work on Sundays so I totally underestimated the church traffic at that time of the day! Luckily you were my only appointment that Sunday so I didn't have to worry about going over on your treatment as much as I did and be behind for the next client.

My first time in and it could not have been better! Chris was calm and relaxed. He took time to listen and ask questions. It was an amazing experience. I have been telling everyone they need to schedule time with him. He has great energy! Thanks Chris!

This was my first experience with a deep tissue massage; it was awesome! I left feeling very relaxed, and slept great that evening. I was running a few minutes late for the massage and Chris was very accommodating; he let me warm up on the bike so I would get maximum benefits from being warmed up prior to the massage & still made time for a solid 60 minutes for me.

Best massage therapist and personal trainer in town! Chris was able to work all the knots out in my upper and lower back relieving my pain . He was also able to take care of my sciatic nerve pain and the knot in my neck that was causing my arms to fall asleep! Thanks for all your hard work that is improving my life!!

Business response:

You're welcome! I'm glad I could help you!

Chris did a fantastic job working on my tight shoulder. He was able to improve my active range of motion, and decrease some of my tenderness by lengthening the soft tissue.

Very knowledgable and skilled, feel comfortable with treatment. Consistently runs late which is inconvenient and unprofessional.
