While his office lacks "Sarasota" flair and sophistication, I'll pass any day on glam and foo-fooness in exchange for his skills. Less talk would assist in the benefit of the massage. However, easier said than done because conversation flows. Again, while enjoyable, this prohibits total relaxation.

Overall, good and very knowledgable. Not a fan of stretching and trigger points and stated that but still was mostly stretching and trigger points. Also, to slow for my liking of a massage. Good if you need focus work I go for relaxation mostly and atmosphere did help with that!

Very knowledgeable. Understood my body and changed his plan (which was my uninformed plan) once he felt the actual imbalances present. Professional. Not going to wow you at the time with SMRT, because it seems so simple. You may not feel sore that night or the next day which is how I used to judge a good massage. But he balanced my upper girdle and actually addressed the alignment issues I had. And gave me good advice and resources for the future.

Doug is very professional and understanding of what is needed for his clients. His extensive background is impressive, which enables him to pinpoint your needs. I was looking for more than just a relaxation massage, which he would of done, but when I explained discomfort that I am having with my neck back and shoulders, he concentrated on that area and that gave me some needed relief. I was very pleased and didn't leave there until I purchased a 4 pack of more treatments. I highly recommend Doug, you will be pleased.

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.

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!

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!
