If you like deep tissue massage and you are working to get the most out of your body, Robert is the professional for you. He will not waste your time or money rubbing lotion on the surface of your skin; he will get deep, take his time, and educate you throughout your session. He is the only therapist I will refer people to and he is the only therapist I will ever use. I took a stack of his business cards to keep in my office. He's phenomenal. Please note: When booking your appointment it may be worth asking if the male Dr. Chase Lovejoy will be present when you're there. I recommend scheduling AROUND that dude, but Dr. Julie Lovejoy was incredibly warm and friendly.

I've had deep tissue massage before but none that left bruises ( I don't bruise easily). The inflammation is gone but the neck pain and numbness in my arms are still there. To be fair, it may require several sessions but this was my second session with an M.T. but 1st one with Robert.

All things considered Douglas worked on a shoulder that I am still having pain that has yet to fully resolve. It is looser but there are still issues ; burning in neck area, striation down arm, areas cramping & tightening up that is more than soreness from the deep massage. I had not been having any of this stuff prior to an initial session of tightness in the shoulder so no pain being involved then and now debilitating pain that has to be worked out. After 2 chiropractic sessions and no luck- back to massage therapy Overall I am good with the work Douglas provides as he truly focuses upon deep work -with this session using a T-bar. I would recommend Simply Muscles to anyone that needs the kinks worked out- sports/medical massage.

Robert is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. When I was referred to him 3+ years ago, I was locked in chronic pain due to extreme stress and working a "desk job". Robert has the ability to explain complex matters in a simple way, thus making it easier to understand exactly what he is doing to help me, as well as helping me become aware of small changes I can make to help myself. He has made suggestions to help improve posture, and has given me exercises and stretches that give me relief and help reverse the bad effects of sitting and working at a computer all day. Don't expect a "feel good" massage. But do expect to feel relief and learn how to help yourself.
