With me being somewhat different with my disability, Dean had to adjust his pressure down a bit, but he was very accommodating and we reached a happy medium. My muscles are more sensitive, especially with the back muscle tightness I'm experiencing currently, which is why I was seeking massage therapy. I have already experienced relief and can now stand up straighter and bend over easier. I plan to wait for a week or two and then set another appointment, as per Dean's advice. Overall a great experience with someone who really knows his profession and can work with a variety of conditions.

Dean was amazing. I haven't "treated" myself to a massage in several years and was not anticipating the effect it would have on my physical health. I basically giggled my way out of the office and to my car; I didn't realize I could feel this good in my body! Is this how "normal" people feel? I came in with a lot of tension and discomfort in my upper back/neck, and left feeling as though two cars worth of weight was lifted from my shoulders. My neck feels so agile now! For as long as I live in the area, I will never see anyone else. Dean is very skilled and thorough. He knows what he is doing and is worth the investment in one's health. Prior to seeing him, I had sent my partner and a friend and they raved and now any time we are hurting, we tell each other we need to be Dean-ed.

I came in with a specific complaint, Dean focused on the aggravated area. When finished I felt better than I had in a week and two chiropractic adjustments. His focus on stretching the area and getting all the muscles to relax was the ticket to a much better day. A day later and I still feel great. Thanks Dean

The whole experience was a no frills serious massage. I am sure he can do a relaxation massage but that is not what I asked him to do. I asked him to break up the muscles damaged by repetitive sports activity. He did exactly that. I worked with him by breathing through some intense body work and got huge results. I have had hundreds of massages for both relaxation and sports repair. Dean is at the top of the game. Wish I had found him earlier in my current training regimen.

I wrote a review about him awhile back online and it still stands true so I thought I would also share it on here. I'm in my thirties and I've been receiving massages since I was 16. In all of those years, it's been extremely difficult for me to find a massage therapist who truly gives a good massage. I've only found three therapists in my life who meet my specific needs and Dean is one of them. I've literally had hundreds of massages and Dean is absolutely phenomenal! He is a very intuitive therapist who was able to pinpoint stressed areas I wasn't even aware I had. My body requires deep pressure and he really delivered a true DEEP tissue massage. Dean was able to determine my specific needs and then respond with the appropriate bodywork and precision necessary. He is friendly, professional, gentle and assertive, capable and considerate. I am ecstatic I found him and I will definitely be one of his regulars. My search for a great massage therapist in Washington is finely over! I highly recommend him.

Dean is an outstanding massage therapist and a wonderful person. He was able to loosen up my right shoulder, which I had injured a while back, and which made me "lopsided" while lifting free weights. He listens to what you are saying and then works whole heartedly to help make it right. I have never before worked with someone so effective. And don't get me started on how amazing the foot massage is.

Once you have a deep tissue massage from Dean you will never go to another massage therapist! He listens intensely; he is highly skilled at finding your tight spots; performing concentrated deep tissue pressure and getting at the deeper layers of muscle tissue--relieving chronic pain. I would recommend all folks with limited mobility due to athletic training, repetitive movements, and overuse to get a deep tissue massage from Dean. Deep tissue massage is an aggressive and sometimes painful procedure, but it works at making those deep muscles so much more flexible, which in turn can reduce a lot of pain and tightness. It will change your life!!!
