Chip is very caring and concerned about his clients and their experience of having a great message. He takes his time talking with you about your desires and what you hope to accomplish with your visit. I've enjoyed getting to know him and have had a good experience both times I've been to see him. My biggest negative is the decor, its not a warm relaxing environment, personally I enjoy nice music (the music was in and out b/c of the internet) candles with a nice fragrance. I also like the sheets to be nice and crisp, not all wrinkly. Chips skill is awesome and his attentive nature is also top notch. I only give you this reply to help you improve and make your business very successful.

Chip is very professional and knowledgeable. I left with instant relief of pain I'd been having. The only reason for 4 stars on Ambiance is the exterior of the building. The actual room where the massage is given is professional, quiet and tranquil.

I liked Chip's personality, but the place was dirty. The building is very old and the flight of stairs going up to the room shook when walking up them (seemed like a fire escape). The ambiance was not that great with scents, although there was a little music in the back ground. i felt like there was an equal amount of stretching as there was a massage and I went for a massage.

Chip really knows his stuff and I will schedule a follow up appointment. One suggestion-the room was cold. I would suggest increasing the temperature of the room, or at least asking each client their preference of temperature at the outset of the massage. Otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed my session and will be back. John Shacka

Chip really knows his stuff. He finds my problem areas and does a great job of relaxing those muscles. Plus, he found a new problem when my session was supposed to be over, but he didn't stop. He didn't want me to leave before he had dealt with that problem. He's the best ever!! A+

Room needed to be cooler. Location was difficult to find and steep stairs not necessarily a plus after a massage. Very friendly and professional. I would have preferred less talking to enhance the relaxation experience, but will ask in the future.
