Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • This was a fabulous experience. The therapist was professional and knowledgeable. I will look forward to the next time.

    Everything about this practice is perfect. Brian is at the top of his class; there is unlikely to be a better massage therapist out there aside from Lizz herself.

  • The experience was amazing. Booking and confirmation were handled perfectly. The room was a little cold, though, and seemed a bit bare as far as decorations go.

    Brian is educated in medical massage and patient in his practice. He is very professional.

  • That was amazing. I don’t think I’ll do regular massage again after that. It was like being stretched by my trainer but 100 times better. I feel amazing!!! Highly recommend!

    This was my first visit to the new office and the layout and ambiance was PERFECT!

  • Nothing

    I didn’t dislike anything

  • Attentive, careful to ensure precise alignment with customer wishes and every effort to provide complete customer satisfaction. Qualified and professional expertise.

    Very comfortable and professional atmosphere. Lots of various hands on resources an individual can use to enhance working with Lizz.

Brian worked on my neck and upper back which became so inflamed and tight that I could barely function . He gave me immediate relief overnight . I have been seeing a chiropractor for 3 weeks trying to get relief from my lower right L4,5 lumbars per the X-rays. I seem to be getting worse . But since meeting Brian I am coming back to get further treatment .

This is the first time I have taken time to ever write a review. I would be remiss if I did not give a shout out to Brian, Lizz, and Lakewood Ranch Medical Massage & Mad Science Massage. I was so impressed with how thorough Brian was and how he spent time to understand my specific neck/back diagnosis. I was feeling anxious about having a massage after learning I have discs out of place in my neck and herniated discs in lower back. I experienced immediate relief from the laser and gained comfort that Brian knew what he was talking about and was approaching my treatment strategically and from a medical perspective. I left feeling relaxed and with neck/back not in pain. I will absolutely be back for a regular regimen of both laser and massage. I am also making an appointment for my spouse. HIGHLY recommend and this comes from a massage snob! Shelley

Overall excellent. The very ending--walking massage on the lumbar spine with me in the seated position--did not work as well as the rest of the session, at least for me. The rest was great. Deborah has a very sweet, welcoming soul and it is a pleasure to receive massage from her. I will repeat!
by Jen on Feb 01
Great job working on my trouble areas! I feel great and refreshed, relaxed and centered. Much like after a good yoga practice. Just like yoga but with great deep stretches with no effort on my part and deep massage built in! Deborah was wonderful, highly recommend!!!

Lizz was great. She makes one feel at ease right a way with a warm welcome. She took the time to send me information pre-visit and then discussed more info before treatment. I appreciate this as a fellow medical professional. She didn't assume I knew too much or too little by letting my knowledge guide the conversation. The treatment felt great. I was a bit anxious about trying it but no pain existed at all. She even offered advice on custom treatment plan that would work hand in hand with the laser therapy for my particular aliment (pointing out other regions I had been working on at home, but didn't bring up in our initial conversation). Proving to myself, this woman is on her game!????
