Richard Dodge

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

                                   

Rich has a passion for massage and helping others.  Since high school he always had an interest in massage.  However, it wasn't until 10 years later in 2013 that he finally dropped everything and began his massage career.  He graduated from the Denver School of Massage Therapy at the top of his class.   He knew he would start his own company but wanted experience within the industry first.  So, over the following two years he jumped between three day spas...

Richard Dodge was very professional and does an amazing job with deep tissue massage! I have sacroiliac issues and my lower back feels so much better since he was able to find the pressure points and work them out.

Rich was an excellent masusse, if I had the money I would go every week. Only downside was, besides a map given on how to reach suite, that building was a bit confusing....but walk long enough, one will find it :-)

Great experience; professional in every way. Felt like all my muscle tension/pain got "exorcized" and I was given a new and vibrant set of muscles. Walked out of that massage room with extra bounce on my feet.

He was very friendly and easy to speak to. In the pre-massage interview part, he was very direct and got right to the point of things taking no time away from the massage. It was the quickest interview I've done and during the massage it was he understood exactly what I wanted. He found all my knots and tension intuitively and actually used the amount of pressure (hard) I asked for (without hurting me). It's incredibly rare that a masseuse can do both of these things and make an hour massage seem like it was much longer. I highly recommend.

I bought this massage as a groupon. Have bought many "groupon" massages before, but this one was unexpectedly very, very good. Very clean, professional and relaxing. The conversation before helped Richard to know exactly how I wanted my massage and I felt he listened and applied his skillful technique perfectly. Not a lot of chit chat which allowed me to relax, but a few questions throughout the session to see how I was doing. I would recommend him highly. While he isn't in his suite all day, every day....his hours vary enough to accommodate almost anyone's schedule. Sue

Richard was amazing. I have been to physical therapy and chiropractic care to remedy my sore, tight upper back and shoulders. Not only did he provide me the only real relief I've gotten from any treatment so far, but he made some excellent suggestions as to where my pain may come from. I will definetely be back for additional trigger point treatments.

Rich is very courteous, professional, and fun! He has a welcoming and engaging nature which makes him comfortable and easy to converse with. He also seems to know his "stuff" and adeptly analyses and anticipates my reactions to different pressures when working trigger points. The room is very clean and organized, and he has music and white noise set up to drown out outside noise and create a relaxing ambience. Definitely will go back, definitely will refer to friends!

Ambiance was cozy without the corporate feel one gets from other chain locations. So there's more personal attention to individual needs. Richard is intuitive in finding problematic areas, and puts the effort into working on specifics. He is very professional.
