Please speak up; I'll address what's ailing you, and feedback is encouraged. For 27... years I've worked on all types, from travelers and local businessmen, to blue-collar guys, weekend warriors, and professional athletes.

Gathered by Tom from admiring massage clients to share with you.

April 28, 2023 in Houston, TX (in-studio)

Just finished biking today; was really rough against the gusty wind but my legs felt stronger today from the massage yesterday. Just thought I'd let you know.

Tom's massage was perfectly integrative and intuitive. He used his hands and fingers (and sometimes elbows ) to seamlessly combine long Swedish strokes, careful deep kneads and tender surface touch to provide for a most relaxing and therapeutic massage experience. At the end, I was awake as I observed my body just blend with the table due to complete relaxation. I'd seek out Tom's massage every time I'm back In Houston.

Wow! The difference is night and day. The massage felt so good; calves, thighs and my shoulders are feeling better. You're very talented and I am very appreciative! :)

Tom is one of Houston's finest massage therapists. I am a bit of a massage aficionado, and I am here to tell you that he is a consummate professional who knows and cares about the craft he has been practicing for well more than 20 years. I can count on feeling better from the moment I hit his table to several days later. As long as he is in business, I will continue to give Tom mine.

I have been getting massage therapy from Tom McLaughlin since 2003. His skill, professionalism, flexibility, and concern for my well-being have led me to return to him over 200 times. I highly recommend him for deep tissue, trigger point, and Swedish massage therapy either in his studio or with his mobile service.
