I have had many many massages and much bodywork done over the years, and I am in the alternative health field, so I am quite picky and have very high standards. I will definitely be going back to Rick!

I enjoyed my experience I have been getting massages four decades now two different mediums I also very appreciated that Rick took the time to listen to my concerns and address them. What I didn't like is that there's two doors on the upper level that are labeled 250

He listened to all of my concerns and helped to greatly relieve my back and shoulder tension. Also, the overall atmosphere was very relaxing.

Ric was very friendly and welcoming. I came in much early and Ric didn't have me wait for my appointment schedule. Mentioned to Ric during the brief intake to open up my upper chest muscles and he started me in supine and worked on my pecs with myofasc approach --- that was awesome. Great pressure, checked in with me from time to time. What was very outstanding to me was Ric's draping --- reminded me of draping done in the classroom, but done with ease and tucked securely. Ric's style of bodywork was a first for me, he started dry/no lotion to really have a feel of the tissues. When he worked my calves with some good slow stripping and firm effleurage, that was awesome. Looking forward for next time with Ric to help me loosen up my right hip to achieve good flexion and extension. Thanks Ric, well worth my trip! You have got to try Ric's bodywork!
