Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • E has a special healing touch.

    Such an amazing massage; one of the best I ever had. I totally recommend.

  • Erskine is great with holding conversation as well as with the actual massage -- felt comfortable and haven't had a massage as good as this one in years

    I've had dozens of massages, none more intense or helpful as this one. E's strong hands went deep into my tight muscles and broke up knots that needed to be broken up. I felt like I was walking on air when I left. One day later, my body feels better than it has in weeks.

  • E has been treating me for years and really takes the time to understand your bodies needs. I highly recommend him for everyone!

    Erskine is an extraordinarily adept massage therapist. He knows exactly what my husband needed and exactly how much his body’s muscles can handle.

  • I first came to E for massage therapy around 2006 or so. He was recommended by a professional dancer who told me he was "a genius." She wasn't exaggerating. E's gentle manner and humble attitude makes him a wonderful person. But his talent -- I would call it his Gift -- makes him a genius. In fact, he's an artist. He's literally healed me from sports injuries that weren't responding to doctors' treatments. And I've had immediate relief from the built-up stress and strains of work tension. As an athlete, both competitively and recreationally, I've had a lot of body work done over the years. I've never known anyone with the skill, strength and spirit of this man. Thanks again, E!

    I have been had massages by for 5+ years. He is consistently professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled.

  • Amazing therapist who is intuitive and helpful.

EM is a very skilled massage therapist, I felt immediate effects during and after the massage. Incredibly intuitive but also after many years of searching for a good massage therapist, he is already triggering and finding my trouble spots without me even having to say anything. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was very pleased with my massage and grateful to have spent my time on that table! It was my first visit and I felt comfortable right away. The atmosphere is calming and the music selection was instrumental jazz which was perfect. There was also good communication about the desired amount of pressure with adjustments as needed. Definitely recommend Erskine!

I came in with serious lower back pain. I experienced immediate results from the deep tissue massage. After the massage, when I bent over to put my socks back on, I realized that I didn't feel any back pain as I normally do. Wow! My back felt like liquid. My only regret is that I should have booked a longer session with Erskine. He has amazing hands.

E has a deep knowledge of how the body works, so when there is a sore lower back or a neck issue it gets taken care of. He is intuitive, gets in deep to unknot those tight areas. He is careful, checks in about pressure, eases off when he needs to, and is extremely thoughtful. Red hands are safe hands. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My massage was amazing as it always is with E. His hands are powerful and he knows just how to use he right amount of pressure to loosen up my muscles. E is extremely professional and reliable. I’ve been going for over two years and have always walked away feeling great and satisfied.

I have been getting massages with E for a year. I am a long distance runner and sometimes stretching on my own is not enough. So when I'm training for a marathon I see E almost every week and he keeps my legs in good shape!
