I've been going to Rich for over six months now. I originally went to him to help me train for a Half Marathon without injury after two years of physical therapy. Totally successful. He's very professional and attentive to what I might need in each session whether for muscle soreness, extra stretching or even relaxation; I won't go to anyone else now.

This was my second appointment with Rich and he has been amazing to work with. He listens well to what I'm telling him about what is going on with my body and works to find the root cause. He has provided me some much needed relief in only two sessions. I will be continuing to work him.

This guy is fantastic! I saw Rich for some bodywork after a car accident. This was my first massage with Rich, and only my second massage in the last ten years or so. I would describe Rich as attentive, kind, and professional - and his space is very welcoming and comfortable. Walking out after the massage my back and neck felt both relaxed and supported. I'm looking forward to my next appointment and I'm so happy to have him on my recovery team :)

Knowledgable, positive and professional are attributes of Rich. He is currently helping my elbows gain extension after a long period of dealing with frozen/locked joints. I would recommend Rich to anyone who is in need of body repair.

I had a fracture of the greater tuberosity on my right shoulder late January. With three months of physical therapy exercise, I felt l needed some deep tissue work to getting my shoulders movement back to normal. Rich was recommend to me by my cousin. After reading his practice philosophy on his website, I decided to make the appointment . My first appointment with Rich was Amazing. He was very methodical in addressing my issues. After the first hour and half session, my movement on my right should showed great improvement. My orthopedic doctor was also impressed with my progress. I just had my second session with Rich and continue to see positive result’s. I highly recommend Rich.

Rich is A M A Z I N G! He’s so knowledgeable and has been the first person to actually make a significant difference in my pain. I had started to think I’d never find relief and now I’m hopeful again, thanks to Rich. He has a welcoming, sincere, and honest personality with a warm and comfortable space in which you feel safe and calm in.

My body felt so much better after one session with Rich. I wasn't able to straighten my shoulders before my appt, and after I was able to straighten them and have a much better range of motion.

My massage with Rich was exactly what I needed. He did a thorough intake process, discussing a recent injury and other more chronic issues I’m working with. He addressed each of these areas specifically and efffectively. I needed some deep and targeted work in areas but also some assessment and gentle work around a muscle tear. Rich is very skillful, intentional, present and he’s a sweet soul too! Highly recommend him.

I really liked the range of motion stretches on my hips that you did toward the end. Also, my favorite move was the twisting motion with both of your hands on my sides. Thank you Richard. On another topic, I appreciated your professional demeanor and inquiries.
