I desperately needed a massage after all the holiday and New Year's madness. I have seen Rick a few times and he always puts 110% into his work. He is a super nice guy and definitely knows his stuff. The room is very low lit and he always adjust the heat/ac to accommodate my needs. I feel relaxed in his presence as he takes all safety measures. I highly recommend Rick, truly one of if not the best massage therapist I know!

I read all of Ricky's other reviews and had to book an appointment. He did not disappoint! I have tried many other therapist on this site and many had not a clue to what they were doing and charging outrageous prices. Ricky is the real deal. If you want a real amazing bodywork, he is your guy.

Ricky was able to get me in at a last minute notice. He is the real deal and knows what he is doing. I did not want to get up from the table I was so relaxed. Thank you Ricky for an amazing massage! I will definitely be back!

Ricky is absolutely right when he says amazing. Truly one of if not the best massages I have ever received. He knows how to find those areas that need attention and provides the exact amount of pressure as requested. I will definitely be returning.

I had not had a massage in months and Ricky provided the right amount of pressure to help relieve the back and neck pain I was having from all the stress! The fact that he wears his mask and takes all sanitary precautions was important to me. He made me feel totally comfortable in his presence. Incredible massage, I will be back. Thank you!

Ricky is amazing. He knows how to find all those troubled areas and his massage is one of, if not the best I have ever received. He is such a nice guy that you feel completely comfortable in his presence. Having someone that has actual training and certified makes all the difference. I appreciate the fact that he goes above and beyond in these crazy times with sanitizing etc. If your massage therapist is not following any safety guidelines, stay away! You will be seeing more of me. Thank you again, my body felt amazing afterwards.

Ricky has been massaging me for over 6 months and I consider him to be one of, if not the best massage therapist I have ever experienced. This guy knows what he is doing and delivers the best massage and knows how to find those areas that need the most work. I cannot believe how much better my back and neck feels since I have been coming to him. Thank you for keeping your prices affordable, you have a regular client for as long you as stay in business.

I've rarely ever felt comfortable with a massage therapist until today. You are an amazing nice guy, thank you. The massage itself was incredible compared to so many others that charge ridiculous amounts of money for wasted time and no experience. You will see alot more of me in the near future. And yes I agree, Amazing and Incredible!

Thank you so much for the incredible massage. I felt like a new man afterwards, one of the best I have ever received! I will definitely be back and you can add me to your repeat clientele.

This man knows what he is doing with massage. Rick found so many areas where I needed help. Needless to say I need more work from him. I think he has more experience than he posted. I will go back to him again. When he says he is a totally nice guy he means it and I agree.
