Deep Tissue, Swedish & 2 other techniques
Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support. Think of the last time you bumped your head or had a sore calf. What did you do? Rubbed it, right? The same was true of our earliest ancestors. Healers throughout time and throughout the world have instinctually and... independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch. Many are still in use today, and with good reason. We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can cure what ails you. I have an amazing studio set up that is comfortable clean and welcoming. My massage table is tempurpedic and heated to allow you to sink into relaxation during your session. Clean linens always. Drift away as you listen to soothing sounds allowing you to fall into a meditative state. Grape seed oils and aromatherapy are used. Every session receives a hot face towel for added sensation. The massage session is a combination of Swedish and Deep tissue to allow you the best of both. All clients are treated with respect and kindness, Gay friendly. Shower is available upon request.

this was hands-down the best massage i've received. the setting, table, music, touch, pressure, everything was perfect. the phrase "melting into the table" is over used in massage reviews, but it's exactly the feeling you get from Darren's massage. if you're in the area, look no further.

Darren was friendly and welcoming. He had talented hands and spent time focusing on tense areas in the massage. Would absolutely recommend,

This is my second time treating myself to Darren's work. His massage technique is so different then I've had before and simply melts you into the table. The heated towels are a great addition. If you get a chance you should book a session. I recommend highly

Darren is excellent. The energy in his hands was so soothing. The long massage strokes from my legs up to my back were amazing. He has a quiet strength about him that is really beautiful.

This was one of the best massages I've had. Darren has a relaxing touch yet he's strong and uses good pressure. Makes you feel instantly comfortable. The massage is so relaxing that you simply get lost in the fluidity of his motions. Coupled with some soothing music in the background, it was 90 minutes of relaxation. I'm already looking forward to my next massage from him.

Darrin was very pleasant when we met. He started the massage right away. His hands are amazing I could have laid there all day. Will definitely be going there again!

Very welcoming and relaxing environment - truly professional. He knows he massage technique and definitely focused on a lighter touch approach. Considering how much my back needed to relax, he spent the right amount of time. Definitely recommend for a full relaxing message.

Amazing massage! I have rarely been in a state of such total relaxation. Darren is Very skilled, has strong large hands and his years of experience are put to good use with an intuitive result. I loved the spacious studio, aromatherapy, music, clean and Inviting environment, and even a quick glimpse of a sweet dog. I've already booked second appointment and very much looking forward to it. I'm also intrigued to try the fitness session/massage combo.

My partner and I had back-to-back sessions with Darren that lived up to our expectations and more. We don't often splurge on massages, but afterwards we are reminded why they are so worth it.
Darren's space is clean, comfortable, and cozy. It will set you immediately at ease--which is great, because the whole point is to relax! He is extremely friendly and sociable, and makes you feel welcome immediately. The massage itself is blissful, and leaves you feeling tension-free. He uses various levels of pressure and hits pressure points I never would have thought of.
In short, it's a wonderful experience and you won't be disappointed. We can't wait to splurge again soon!

Darren's studio is set up beautifully and one of the most comfortable tables and head rests I've ever used. Darren was easy and professional to communicate with. He provides a peaceful retreat from your busy day and I found the fluidity of his massage technic thoroughly relaxing - I nearly fell asleep. I will definitely see him again.

Seeing that he is a personal trainer and offered an interesting combo of personal training followed by massage, I decided to treat myself and give it a go. He took me to a complex gym located across the street from his studio. Darren is a well rounded and dynamic personal trainer. His personality is reflected in his workouts and made going to the gym a lot of fun. He showed me workouts to attack specific muscle groups, effective cardio routines, and proper form. After the training hour he brought me over to his studio for the massage I first must say the studio is beautifully done and smells amazing from the time you walk in. The massage table has to be one of the most comfortable ones I've been on and could have slept there all day. He was very quiet during the session allowing me to fall into a deep trance and the sounds he had playing were soothing and relaxing. The massage was everything I wanted and more. The use of a hot face towel along with the warm towel was a very nice touch. If you have not tried his services I highly recommend him, you won't be disappointed, not to mention if you have ever thought of a personal trainer. Try the training massage combo it was a great two hours and money well spent.

Darren gives a great, relaxing massage in a very comfortable, clean environment. The added touch of aroma therapy and hot towel treatment is nice. The oil he uses is non-greasy, and leaves skin feeling great after the appointment. Darren is great at light touch, as well as deeper tissue massage. He is quiet, but don't mistake that for being unfriendly; he is very sweet and charismatic.
