"How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having." ~Eckhart Tolle

I am amazed at the reduction of pain in my neck. It is still there, but definitely improved. Nothing ever works for my neck so I am really hopeful. I am hoping to come back soon!

I thought he was very informative about the massage and how to self heal. Honestly, I was looking for someone who would concentrate more on specific knots when found and more cranial sacral would have been included. Overall if you are looking for a nice, well mannered, knowledgeable massage therapist who gives a great relaxation massage then he's the guy. The entrance to the business is also very strange, when I arrived and opened the unmarked front door I was scared, not the best first impression. But thank you.

I've been going to Brian for years now for cranial sacral work. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I am more than willing to travel to meet with him, because his skill is worth it. He's always been very professional yet very caring and gentle. Thanks to Brian, my chronic back and neck pain is quite bearable. He helps keep me going and living the life I want to live.
