REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Shaun on Apr 23
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.

Strong hands provide deep rub. Massage was thorough and not rushed. Truly loosened up stiffness in back. Recommended without reservations.

Doug is very professional and a skilled therapist. I have arthritis in my neck Doug, worked carefully and slowly to release the pressure and stretch out my neck. My neck felt great and he elevated a lot of pressure I was experiencing. Nice guy too!

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!
