REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jen on Oct 16
Doug went out of his way to squeeze me into his schedule when I was desperate. He gave a great massage! The location and room did not provide a spa like experience - but definitely a professional, quality massage!
by Charlene on Oct 11
Doug took his time to ask me about what I was looking for, what my problem areas were and where I would like to focus. He explained his method and asked what would work for me and made the session a positive and productive one. He's experience and expertise made for the best massage I have ever had. I highly recommend him!

Doug was great, listened to my concerns, spent time asking me questions and getting to know me before massage. This allowed for a more focused and efficient session. Walked out feeling amazing! Would highly recommend Doug.

BEST massage EVER!

This was my first visit with Doug and it was a wonderful experience. He took time to ask questions about what my expectations were for the massage; was I more focused on pain management, relaxation or stress relief. The massage was amazing and my hip pain was relieved. I feel he is very experienced, professional, and knowledgeable in many areas. I would recommend Doug and have booked another session with him and look forward to that massage.

His concentrated effort on the problems. Did notice a significant increase in pain and decreased mobility in the hips later in the afternoon.
