Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I think Sheldon is a Supreme Expert in healing. He is kind, incredibly present, knowledgeable and his approach is affirming in every way. I can not recommend his services more. He is a true, informed and expert healer.

    Sheldon is the best. I’ve seen so many massage therapists in so many different cities and countries over the years, I’ve had a bad back since a car accident when I was 16 - nobody has the knowledge of the body and energy and skill that Sheldon does. If you haven’t been to see Sheldon, you’re really missing out. Go. Now.

  • Sheldon is the most qualified Massage Therapist I’ve ever been treated by. His knowledge of the specific needs of each anatomical part of my body extends far beyond what the average LMT knows. His level of knowledge and level if professionalism is clinical in nature and nothing like going to one of those average massage chain stores. I’m very fortunate to have Sheldon as a member of my healthcare team to help me recover from spinal fusion and total hip replacement surgeries. In just a matter of weeks my back was straighter and walking became much less painful for me. With continued visits I’m confident my total recovery will be imminent.

    Sheldon is a very good massage therapist! Attentive, a great listener and communicator, working out tough tension spots in an amazing integrative way.

  • SheldonTownsend has a unique technique that revive your body, you will never get the same massage.

    Highly skilled, knowledgeable, professional, and great person overall. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for massage therapy.

  • Sheldon is great! He helps treat my previous and current injuries to give me increased mobility. Friendly and professional

    I highly recommend booking a massage with Sheldon. You will not regret it.

  • Sheldon is an experienced conscientious therapist. He thoughtfully structures treatment to my needs. I am very grateful for his expertise.

    Sheldon was intuitive and respectful with his work. I have been to many therapists and he is certainly one of the best! I especially appreciated his use of trigger points, knowledge of reflexology, and follow up consultation.

My neck has been fused for 10 years and I have never been able to look up ever since. After two sessions with Sheldon I am standing straighter, seeing the sky, and moon. The stiffness is gone and the tension is has loosened up. Sheldon is a professional and very innovative in his method, and knowledgeable of anatomy and how to use it. He is the Best!

Almost immediately, the wealth of knowledge and experience that Sheldon has is apparent. It's the type of high level treatment that I've been searching for, and I can't imagine going to another massage therapist at this point

Sheldon is truly amazing. I look forward to my monthly massage. I was referred to him by my aunt who is also a masseuse and it has been a fantastic experience. He takes great care to get to know you and understand your body and makes lifestyle recommendations to help you be your best self. And, he is funny! Do yourself a favor and book him ASAP!

I'm able to attain the highest state of physical relaxation with this LMT. My circulation is improved & nerve compression releases during my sessions. He assists me with myofascial release & pain, lower my stress level, boosts mood/improves sleeping pattern and I experience reduced fatigue. Any friends who love massage know about this practitioner, multiple people have asked for telephone number and I've provided. Barbara

Sheldon is hands down the best massage therapist I’ve ever had, and I’ve had many over the years. He’s mastered his craft over his years of experience & training and he is passionate about it. If you like to talk you will get great conversation, if you don’t he can do that well too. Can’t say enough good things. I highly recommend him.
