When you’re experiencing physical pains and discomforts, please go see Richard and do not hesitate. I was in terrible pain on my back neck and head with horrible ringing in my ears due to a gone wrong chiropractic adjustments. Richard Bent is a God sent into my life! I thank God first and then Richard for helping me heal. I had only three visits and the ringing is almost gone!! I have previously seen other massage therapists and physical therapists before seeing Richard and none were able to help me. I’ve suffered for more than 7 months with excruciating pains and that annoying sound that I couldn’t sleep with because of it. As you can imagine it gave me major anxieties and depression. I am finally begging to be myself again!! Richard is my gifted angel God sent me. He is knowledgeable, friendly, very professional with gifted healing hands and a heart of GOLD!! He helped me feel comfortable and peaceful. I’m sleeping all night and beginning to move my body without experiencing those horrible pains. The anxieties and depression have subsided tremendously. I cannot tell you enough of how grateful I am!! Wellness is a priceless gift.

Richard did a fabulous job and took a lot of time after my session to explain the anatomy behind some of the things he did. His studio is easy to find with plenty of parking, and the treatment room is very comfortable and nicely decorated. I have seen him 3 times and most certainly will be back! Highly recommended!

It had been 14 years since my last massage and with my stress levels at work to say I was jacked up would be an understatement. Richard was able to relieve a lot more of my issues than I thought possible with one visit. I look forward to more visits to complete the therapy. Who knows I might even be able to touch my toes again without pain :)

Richard was very knowledgeable in the treatment given. I really felt "safe" with how thing were done. He was able to find areas of concern w/o me even mentioning them. I felt completely (almost too) relaxed upon leaving. So glad my husband was driving. Highly recommend!

I have never been a fan of body massage and because of Shoulder Surgery recovery PT, I was encouraged to have body work done. Richard was recommended to me, The experience was amazing and I was totally comfortable and have made another appointment. His work is beyond body work and encircles the body energy of his client for total mind body spirit healing work.

Richard is part artist, part machinist, part sage. He combines an unmatched, tailored blend of physiological knowledge, technical acuity, psychospiritual expertise, and lived experience to release, realign, rejuvenate his clients' minds and bodies. This approach goes far beyond the average massage therapy practitioner, and into the transcendent. Unquestionably reccommended.

I had a two hour appointment scheduled but because he didn't have a client coming in after me... he spent 3 1/2 hours with me at the two hour rate... unheard of today. Giving more of himself and not expecting something back... he was amazing!! And so knowledgeable... very impressed!!!

Can’t recommend Richard enough, he’s so knowledgeable, kind and makes you feel at home. He fixes you in ways you didn’t even know you needed fixing. He’s also excellent at lymphatic drainage which is an amazing skill to have and hard to come by in the area. Seriously, you MUST try Richard.

Mr. Bent was very professional and his knowledge of the human body extensive. He took the time to explain his methods, engaged me for my expectations, and set about performing the techniques (and they were all-encompassing and complete) which have greatly improved my situation (regarding my painful muscle spasms) by the next day. I am greatly encouraged by Richards aftercare instructions and what I should communicate with my orthopedic Dr.
