Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Doug gave me a great massage. I had some areas in my neck and back that needed special attention, and he was able to key in on the troubled spots and do some good work. He found several other areas during the full body massage that I didn't even know were bothering me until he worked them out. Nice guy, very passionate about his work, well-informed of many techniques. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solid massage.

    Doug's massage was a wonderful mixture of different techniques! I especially enjoyed the hot stones and the aromatherapy! Great value

I liked everything About this massage. It was very relaxing and serene, and yet I felt invigorated afterwards. All my muscles and joints felt better than when I arrived. I liked the firm muscle massage and feeling that I was getting a “treatment” while simultaneously experiencing the smooth flow of being “pampered”. I thoroughly Enjoyed and appreciated Doug’s abilities and technique and I will definitely be back soon!

Business response:

Thank you Nancy! I am glad that you enjoyed the session and felt much better afterwards. I look forward to seeing you again.

Doug's accumulated skills throughout his career really are amazing. His unique technique he used on my torso loosened my hips and low back after the session even though he did not address those areas in the session. My body naturally started to unwind. I felt so great and balanced.

After trying several massage therapists in the Sarasota/Bradenton area to alleviate my tension headaches, and latent pressure points, I found Doug Niven, LMT, over a year ago and continue to see him regularly. Before each session, Doug takes time to listen to what my pain level is, and where I’m hurting. Doug is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He has the ability to target specific problem muscles, which means I can walk in with a tension headache and leave without one. Doug has crafted a unique, hybrid set of techniques complex enough to actually deal with all the complicated things that happen to my muscles. He manages to untangle my back muscles every time, and I feel 10 pounds lighter after I leave. I HIGHLY recommend him and am immensely pleased with my experience, as I am sure you will be too!

Business response:

Thank you Sebastian!

Excellent cranial sacral work after a neck injury. Focused on target area for entire session. I’m not a person who normally gets massages or is used to being touched by strangers so I was also relieved that he was willing to work on the neck and shoulders with my sports bra on.

Thank you! I am glad I was able to help!
