I reached out to Don to schedule an appointment- and he was able to see me that day! He showed up and was very courteous and it was truly like meeting a new friend who was getting to know me, but he was also great at recognizing when I was relaxed and he was then a bit more quiet and focused. The massage itself was truly phenomenal! It was like an intuitive touch where he seemed to find and work out the problem areas without any real guidance from me. I felt so at ease at the end of the 90 minutes, I couldn’t have been more impressed with a first session. I only hope to get another massage soon.

Don was the absolute best. Not only was this the best massage I've ever had, I was so relaxed. His hands worked every single kink out of me. I couldn't recommend him more.

Don is a treasure, both to engage with and receive a massage from. My husband and I regularly meet with him for his excellent massage therapy skills. We always feel so much better after he works on us, and highly recommend him for any massage therapy needs. He is a great conversationalist if you like chatting during a massage but also is fine with allowing you to just silently drift away in to blissful relaxation. Don is a beautiful person, both inside and out, and we are thankful to have met him. Highly recommend. - Scott

Don was extremely punctual, even showed up a little early to relax, put me at ease. The massage was for 90 mins, and it was fantastic. He came prepared, was definitely experienced and knowledgeable in his technique. Easy to talk to on a variety of subjects, but when I wanted to just zone out and relax (thinking is hard!), he respected that.
Don was very responsive when I told him my problem areas, and handled them well. Constant and perfect pressure through out. By the end of the massage, I was completely relaxed and had one of the best sleeps I have had in a long time.
I have been getting massages for over 30 years, and can honestly say his was one of, if not, the best. Highly recommend him to anyone who wants a serious and thorough massage.

Incredible first massage experience with Don. Very friendly and made some great conversation during the massage and felt very comfortable with him from the start. Don's years of massage training and experience are evident as he used his hands to work along my body. One of the best massages I've ever had and plan to call on him again.

I have to say Don is by far the best massage I ever had! I've had a few massages in the past, but none compare. Don is friendly, easy to talk to, and. very professional. Don never rushes and his technique is excellent. I only use Don when I need a massage and he is very accommodating with his schedule. I highly recommend Don, you won't regret it. Tim

Hands down the best massage I've ever had. I highly recommend Scot! He makes you feel so comfortable! I will definitely be returning.

Don was fantastic. He really knows his stuff. His pressure varied and he knew where I needed deeper tissue work. Can't wait to book him again for another massage.

Scot has been massaging me since my automobile accident in May. He's seen me through my recovery from serious whiplash, but I'm still keeping regular appointments. Scot's deep tissue massage has become and will remain an integral component of my regimen for health and well-being.
Oct. 14, 2017 in Harleysville, PA (in-studio)
I had my first appointment with Don. He is a kind, gentle and professional man who has exceptional massage skills and technique. I was greeted with a warm smile and shown to his studio. His massage is amazing! He is thorough and pays attention to the areas that need it. The massage was not rushed. I am eager to return to his table soon. I highly recommend his services.

I had a great massage with Don! I texted the number on this site just one day prior to my appointment and got an immediate response. Scheduling was very easy. He arrived 5 minutes early with his table, sheets, and lotion. He was very easy to talk to and got to work right away. His technique was great and I immediately knew I was in good hands. He was respectful and professional. He played music from his phone on Pandora while we chatted. I requested extremely deep pressure and was not disappointed. He put my comfort first with room temperature and pressure, even though it left him drenched in sweat. My back and gluts felt amazing the next morning, just in time for my interview. I will be requesting another massage if I come back to Richmond. Thank you for an amazing massage!

Scot was very welcoming and first wanted to determine what my treatment wishes were. The massage itself was very thorough, with attention to the problem areas. I would not hesitate to return to him for further help and recommend him without reservation.

I'm a new man after two months of regular healing massage with Scot. He's cleared up the effects of whiplash from my auto accident in May and is homing in now on some of my other pre-existing issues related to older injuries. I can't do without him! Don't want to do without him! Totally professional and effective masseur and as nice a guy as you could ever hope to meet!!
Aug. 05, 2017 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
I texted Scot to see if he was free and he promoted responses back yes. 45 minutes later I met him at his place for a 90 minute massage. It was incredible, the best massage I have ever gotten. He asked how deep I wanted the massage and thus applied the exact right amount of pressure .
I loved every minute of it. The massage went for 90 minutes and incorporated hot stones and Scot walking on my back, a first for me but it felt Incredible.
I will be back and totally recommend Scot without hesitation!!

Scot is becoming indispensable! This was my sixth massage with Scot since the automobile accident I mentioned in my June 15 review. I should write a review after each weekly massage, because Scot certainly deserves it (sorry, Scot)! I can't believe the difference in my back over the last weeks. When we started, Scot and I could both feel how asymmetrical my back was. Now the balance and pliability have returned, thanks to Scot's knowing exactly how to deal with my whiplash. Each time he works deeper and introduces new techniques as he feels appropriate. Last time I got treated to his Ashiatsu technique and discovered that he can articulate a back with his feet just as well as with his hands! Amazing! In addition to the massage, Scot has given helpful guidance about gentle weight training and other tools to get me in shape for my retirement years. Even when my accident symptoms are gone, I'll avail myself of Scot's gifts as often as I can.

Another great massage from Scot of House Call Massage Therapy. I am pretty much a regular now with Scot and it is so nice when a therapist knows you and what you enjoy in a session. The last few times I have been sure to tell Scot what I like in the session and he really listens and REMEMBERS. He got right to work on my back I told him was getting stiff and tight. Scot knows I need deep tissue work but knows how to loosen me up without making me cry “Uncle!” like some therapists do. He starts working my shoulders and neck. Then, Ahhh, Yeah! without even asking I feel the soothing heat of the hot stones I love on my tight shoulders and neck feeling so good. I barely feel the table wobble and smile to myself I know what’s coming Scot’s specialty, Ashiatsu, barefoot massage. While standing on top of me with nothing to hold onto Scot can do everything from gently cradle my neck to bring on some serious deep pressure and get my back as loose as a wet noodle. There is something about the deep pressure when it’s delivered that way it much easier to take. He works my arms and particularly my hands get some attention they need being on the computer so much. And he does some nice lighter work on my legs and especially my big feet which I love cause it about puts me to sleep every time. Always my favorite part of the session and Scot leaves time to do that knowing it leaves me totally relaxed. Yes having been a House Call customer now for several months I definitely endorse them it’s just gotten better and better.

Don's massage was my first experience with a two hour session and I'm sold! He's great at making you feel comfortable and relaxed, knows how to find the problem areas and works through them. His professionalism starts with prompt responses to setting appointments and arriving a little ahead of time to set up. He's definitely worth it for a respectful and soothing massage that leaves me rested and pain free. Night time scheduling allows to me to go to the gym after work and get a super massage afterwards - just when I ndeed it.

Scot to the rescue! I have been receiving medical treatment since I was rear-ended in a serious auto collision a few weeks ago. The effects of whiplash have really begun to subside since I called in Scot to deliver the therapeutic massage prescribed by my doctor. His deep tissue massage is the first time I've experienced the hot stone technique, and my healing has really kicked into high gear as a result. Finally, I feel like there's hope for getting back to normal. What a talented, sweet man!

When I arrived Scot met me on the sidewalk. We went inside and the place was remarkable. The massage was the best I have ever had. I will be going back. Scot has definitely got himself a new client.

This was my third massage from Don. He is professional, personable and an excellent massage therapist. I would highly recommend.

Don is a very professional and talented masseur. He is always prompt and prepared to give a great massage. He takes care to make sure you are comfortable and at ease. He is very skillful and thorough in treating problem areas. He also has a great lighter touch that soothes and relaxes. I have worked with Don on many occasions and will definitely contact him again. I always feel relaxed and calm after his massage and always wanting more.

Don drove several hours to make a late (10 PM) appointment. He arrived on the minute with his gear and a great attitude. Don is professional, polite, quiet, and intent on delivering an excellent massage. If you like to chat during a massage, he is an excellent conversationalist. He is smart and kind. Terrific massage, great person!

I had my first massage with Don tonight and it was extremely relaxing and therapeutic. Scheduling the appointment was done through a combination of e-mail and text, which worked great. He got back to me right away and we were able to agree on a time.
He arrived at my hotel with his table and was able to get it set up and begin the massage very quickly. There was a nice set of music on his phone that added to the soothing atmosphere.
The massage lasted the requested amount of time and trust me 120 minutes almost wasn't enough. I am very happy that Don is available for massage in the Raleigh/Durham area.

A massage from Don is a wonderful experience. He has a great touch which he varies according to comfort level. He deftly finds all knots and gets rid of them with no pain. In addition, Don is a great guy. He is interesting and interested in people and a wide range of subjects. If you feel like conversing, he will; if you don't, he won't. I leave each appointment feeling completely rejuvenated. It's a great experience.
Jan. 19, 2017 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
Don is courteous and attentive. He has a great sense of where the sore spots are and adjusts his pressure accordingly. He is a highly skilled massage therapist.

Incredibly professional, skilled and prompt. Scot put me at ease from the very first massage. He was attentive and knew exactly what level of pressure to use for the areas I was having issues with. The hot stone therapy was amazing in conjunction with the shiatsu. I've seen him on more than one occasion and my back feels brand new everytime!
Jan. 06, 2017 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
This was my second massage appointment with Don. I elected to increase my scheduled time from 60 to 90 minutes to allow additional time for addressing tightness in several joints. The medium to deep pressure applied by Don was just right for relieving muscle tension. Don's cordial demeanor coupled with his professional attributes and keen awareness of his client's needs are most desirable characteristics of a masseur which I have integrated into my ongoing health wellness maintenance program. I highly recommend Don.
Jan. 03, 2017 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
Scot was very welcoming, Felt at ease immediately. Massage pressure strong but not unpleasant. Concerned for my comfort. Totally relaxing music. Literally I was in good hands. Very much looking forward to returning. Very professional and desirable massage.

I had an appointment to cancel today and was looking for a great last minute massage. I reached out to Scott and he had a full schedule. Scott referred me to Don, his brother. Don was very easy to communicate with and easy to set up the appointment. My 2 hr session with him was outstanding!! His technique was great. When he worked by back.. he had a great deep pressure technique that left me feeling like I had actually had an awesome massage. I most certainly plan on using Don's services on a regular basis!!
Dec. 15, 2016 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
Scot is awesome, easy to work with, flexible scheduling and has seen me with same day requests. Great massage pressure and works previous injuries, so I'm no longer in pain. Highly recommended.

I've had a few massages from Don and have thoroughly enjoyed each. He's very professional and creates an environment that is relaxing and comfortable. While I'm relocating for work and I will not be close enough to get regular massages from Don, I'll definitely book an appointment when I'm in town.
Dec. 02, 2016 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)
Don exhibits a high degree of professionalism accompanied by cordiality, a sincere interest in delivering the type of massage a client has requested, and respect. Don explained in advance what the massage would entail and allowed the opportunity to discuss any particular aspects of the massage. The time was used to the fullest extent in delivering a relaxing,
rejuvenating, and energizing massage. Don clearly and genuinely considers his clients' needs and is sensitive to them. I would highly recommend Don as a masseur.

I have had multiple sessions with Don and he is the best massage therapist I have ever had. His technique is spot on and knows how to make a person feel at ease.
Booking was simple and fast.
I cannot recommend him enough.

Don's massage was awesome from beginning to end. When I arrived, we briefly discussed which areas might need more focused attention, then Don went right to work. The massage was an excellent blend of deep, firm pressures and techniques that left me totally relaxed. By the end of the session, all the stress of my week was gone. I definitely recommend Don and hope to book with him again. Thank you, Don, for sharing your healing spirit and providing such a wonderful experience.
