“If people say massage works ‘because it makes you feel good’ … excuse me! “Massage works because it changes your whole physiology.” Tiffany Field, PhD professor of pediatrics and psychiatry.

With too many years sitting behind a desk I decided to make a change. I have always wanted to get into the health field and when I went to a massage therapist and they were able to assess and stop the numbness and tingling in my hand and arm, which my medical doctor was not able determine the cause, because it was sporadic. After this experience I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up!

Darryl was amazingly responsive for me, someone in Iowa City for a speaking engagement. If I lived here I would see him regularly. He is talented, loves what he does and is proud of his work. The. Best.

Darryl is very knowledgeable and friendly. His treatment was very thorough and he was very helpful with many things (posture, muscle tension, overall health, etc.)

I saw Darryl for neural reset therapy and lymph drainage, both of which I have had before with other practitioners, but he was much more thorough! He was very knowledgeable, explaining each step of the process as he went. For the first time in two weeks, I did not have to get up in the night with sciatic pain and bladder urgency. I was able to change positions overnight without pain--which I hadn't been able to do previously. It was amazing to start my day without fear, pain, and anxiety. Would highly recommend and I will be back!

Fantastic massage that really eased my back and leg pain. I really enjoyed the pain relief massage which was done first. Darryl was great about telling me why and what he was doing and explained everything; he is very knowledgeable about the body. The Swedish massage was also awesome.

This was the best treatment I've had in years. I came to Darryl for back pain, as my chiropractor was out of town, and Darryl found other problems that were causing my stabbing low back pain. He truly went the extra mile to work out all the kinks that I could tolerate (4 hrs in 2 separate sessions). Very thankful for his treatment and advice regarding my all over inflammation. Highly recommend!!

I called Darryl for the pain in my injured knee, he was very accommodating even though it was a Sunday afternoon, when he could have been having family time. He gave me a full professional work out and made me feel very relaxed, explaining his way throughout the entire process. By the time he was done I felt so much better in all the areas that were taking the brunt of over compensating my walk and movements that were getting me through the day with intense pain in my knee. On Monday I went to my Dr., who ordered x-rays to learn that I had an unidentified floating particle causing the pain. I will be under the care of an Orthopedic Dr. to get a resolution, but Darryl did such excellent work the rest of my joints and muscles feel so much better that I feel an improvement in the overall health.

I had a great experience at Essential Transformations after being referred by a friend. Darryl did a wonderful job explaining what might be causing some of my pain (poor posture) and not only helped me feel better, but gave me a few exercises to do to prevent me from having these issues in the future. I really appreciate the time he took to explain everything. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
