That was probably one of the most incredible massage experiences I have ever had. Darin has a way of doing bodywork that makes you feel absolutely comfortable. It is incredible how he goes in and out of pressure knowing exactly where and when to increase & decrease to the perfect pressure. I really appreciate that Darin was able to not only focus on my trouble spots, but also; manage to hit every muscle group leaving me looking forward to my next session.

Thank you for such an incredible massage. I loved your flow and technique using both Swedish and Deep tissue. I don't know if I have ever had anyone find my trouble spots so easily. I will be back soon for another session. Beautiful comfortable studio btw.

Darin was very professional and has created a space that is perfect for massage and healing. I really liked the flow of his massage. Will be back!

Darin responded quickly, he reserved a parking space for me (that was a first) Darin found knots in my neck and shoulders I didn’t realize were there. He worked them making sure the pressure level was OK. Moving onto my back I enjoyed his use of hands and forearms. And then he moved onto my legs and finally my feet, which I especially enjoyed. Yes, I was in nirvana, 90 minutes I felt like a new man. His massage room, the temperature, and table were exactly right.
