Doug is clearly well-trained, welcoming, and very professional. I liked how he uses a combination of techniques to address and target issues experienced in the body. I benefited greatly from the session and would highly recommend others go see him.

Overall the massage was really good. I loved the hot rocks. Also liked the heating pads. I felt very comfortable as soon as I got there and was super relaxed after the massage.
