“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!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

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!

I really enjoyed the thoroughness Darryl provided. He explained what he was doing and why he was doing it. He based the massage on my needs and what was going to help me. Highly recommend him to anyone!

I was only in town for the day, and very happy I scheduled this NRT appointment.

Being the head of Kingston hospital in New York for 10 years, an MD for 38 years, it takes a lot of knowledge to amaze me and even more to reduce my pain with my autoimmune diseases, Ankylosing spondylitis Crohn's disease hypohysitis malignant hypertension Addison's disease Raynauds syndrome Scleroderma Lichen planus, which is what has brought me to the UI hospital because of a rare autoimmune disease. Darryl explained the Neural Reset Therapy is done at a nerve level and to demonstrate a technique to loosen my forearm. He gave me an example on my arm and in less than 15 second he greatly reduced the pain in my forearm. Darryl integrated the NRT with Lymphatic drainage first to reduce the pain before doing Swedish, which allowed him to go deeper without the pain!!! He went from head to toe reducing my overall pain by 80%. I have been able to reduce my hydrocodone in half and I expect I'll keep reducing it which is incredible in itself. For the first time in over 18 months of sleeping in misery 20/24 hrs, I feel the best I have felt in a very long time. I'm more amazed every day!

Throughout the session I was extremely comfortable even when I was not able to relax as immediately as I would have wished. I was never made to feel as though my physical responses were out of the ordinary. The areas of tension that I had before the therapy are mostly gone 24 hours later. It was a good day.
