I recently had the pleasure of meeting Tristan for a massage. Not only was this my first meeting with Tristan but this was also my first massage ever. I was in the area on vacation and sent him a text about scheduling an appointment. He was most accommodating and was able to get me in the next day. He spent the first few minutes listening to what I was looking for, and then he explained what I was to expect, which helped me relax. The ambiance was perfect with a warm table, dim lighting, music, and a private massage room with an attached full bathroom.

I was looking to relax and let go of any stress and tension. Tristan’s techniques and use of hot stones was absolutely amazing.

When my session was finished, I left feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. I will definitely book again with Tristan whenever I am in the area.

I was totally taken aback by the scene of the venue. Tristan had gone over and beyond to make the environment a sensory delight. did not stop there. The sensations that overwhelmed me in the first 5 minutes was the start of a surreal yet exhilarating experience of sensations that did not stop for over an hour. His touch is firm and electric and his flow is indescribable. I would highly recommend Tristan. If you are used to a "regular" massage, Tristan's massage will totally blow you away. Thank you Tristan, for an experience like no other.

I just had the absolute pleasure of a session with Tristan, and it was one of the top three massages I have had ever. And I have had massages at some of the best spas around the world. It just goes to show that the attitude and technique of the masseur makes all the difference.

Tristan asked what I wanted out of the massage, and did he ever deliver. He truly gave 110% to the entire massage using deep tissue, hot stones, and other techniques. He has a great touch and had a very comfortable studio. When he said we were done, I couldn't believe it had been 90 minutes. I was so relaxed.

Do yourself a favor. Book a session with Tristan. Stat. You will thank me later. As will your body. Simply amazing!

Rob is a warm, skillful massage therapist with a healing, therapeutic and very intuitive satisfying touch.
As a massage therapist myself, I have had a lot of massages. When I found him I was in heaven! One of the best massages I have received in a long time. I have learned some new techniques from him. I suggested some techniques to use on me and he is very open to suggestion. I have been seeing him for about a year and a half now. He is exactly as he describes himself in his ad.
So if you want the best de-stressing, muscle stretching, knot removing, and massage you will ever have, you won't be disappointed with him.
On top of that, he is a good person and I enjoy the time I spend with him. I always leave feeling uplifted and encouraged.
I book a session with him every month he is that good. 😉

Scheduling with Rob was seamless. When I arrived, I immediately felt very comfortable and Rob spent time to discuss the massage and what to expect. The massage table was heated and certainly enhanced the relaxation. The moment the massage started it was obvious Rob's touch was amazing. The long strokes relaxed every muscle group. Rob wanted to make sure I was comfortable the entire session. I have experienced several massages and this was absolutely the most amazing! Cannot wait for next session. Rob is a master of his profession.

I had seen Rob's profile and had been hesitant; I took a chance and booked an appointment on the last day he was scheduled to leave Huntsville. He was so kind enough to accommodate me within a few hours of his departure. When I arrived he open the door with a great smile. We sat and chatted for a few minutes which put me at ease; from that he knows how to make you feel comfortable and safe. Rob’s massage is powerful, intuitive and healing. I’ve had the awesome opportunity since my first initial session to have multiple sessions with him. Rob has tremendous skills and very intuitive with very strong hands that seem to know where to go and find all the areas that need attention without saying a word. That says a lot about his massage ability. His skills are diversified and I’m glad that I met him and will continue to book each time he’s in town. I’m forever grateful for you accommodating me at a short notice and your services. Just an overall amazing experience.

I've seen Rob for several months. He embodies what a massage session should be for any and every client. He consistently puts great care and thought into every detail for an optimal experience. He knows how to read the room; when there's a need for communication and a need for silence. The sessions are designed for any healing or revitalizing of the muscles, joints, etc. His level of expertise and practice definitely presents itself throughout the session. The uniqueness of his character and execution are unmatched by any other comparable therapist. There should be no hesitation when scheduling an appointment with Rob. Above and beyond levels of expectations are guaranteed.

"I just had my first massage with Rob and just one word sums it up: “Perfection”. I’ve used several masseurs over the past decade and, without hesitation, Rob’s skills are the best, period! He is methodical in his approach with hands that are crazy skilled. He has gained a repeat customer in me, that’s for sure!"

When I travel I like to use different massage therapists and have had dozens in the past few years. I was able to get with Rob this week for a massage and I have to put him as one of the best I've had so far. From the beginning, his texts were friendly and when I arrived, I've never had so many questions about what I needed in a massage. And he explained thoroughly what to expect from him. The massage was absolutely incredible! He worked on all areas I mentioned due to the fact I had some issues from a car wreck I had as a teenager. I was very well satisfied with the entire massage. He kept asking if I need anything additional or special done during the massage. I really appreciated his kind personality. Oh, and his use of hot stones and hot oil was out of this world!
I will definitely go back and look forward to my next massage session.

I was in a car wreck many years ago. I have probably seen over 100 massage therapists so far. Rob impressed me from the onset our our meeting. He discussed the massage and what to expect. Asked me to keep him informed of how it was going and to verbally participate in my own needs for the massage. Rob used his knowledge and stretched me in way that I have never been stretched. They were wonderful! I told him how disappointed i was now in the majority of my past therapists. I have already booked my next session with him for when he is back in town. Also, his pictures do not do him justice. Rob is extremely fit and muscular. On top of his skills and knowledge, I feel that I have made a new friend. Such a rarity in this world. You should book your appointment now, if he has any openings! Thanks Rob!

Wow!!! Rob is absolutely the best masseur I have ever, ever used. I started using him probably seven or eight years ago and somehow thru phone changes, lost his number. I was so thankful that I was able to reconnect a couple years ago. I drive two hours about once a month to have a session with him. He really is that good!!! You've got to get some leg stretches from him. Amazing! He's a great guy with a great personality, easy to talk with, and very comfortable to be around. His studio has always been clean and top notch. Every day you wait you're missing out on a fantastic massage.10+ stars always

Rob is a very nice guy and immediately made me feel comfortable and welcomed. His massage space is clean,
warm and cozy. Long hours of repetitive motion in my work leaves me with back issues which he always addresses with the exact pin point pressure needed to alleviate my discomfort. I always walk out relaxed and pain free! His massages are head to toe perfection. I will definitely be back again soon!

March 21, 2020 in Chattanooga, TN (in-studio)

Rob is the best masseur I have ever had. In the past, I have only had spa type massages. I am 5 months post op major back surgery and still stiff and in some pain.

After exchanging several texts about the massage session, I drove 2 hours to see him. Rob made me comfortable even before arriving so I was not nervous about the massage or Rob himself. After the 90 minutes, I felt I had met a new friend and plan to schedule a session with him at least once a month.

Rob is a true professional and even a better communicator. Rob is the best you will find.

Feb. 18, 2020 in Chattanooga, TN (in-studio)

I’ve been a monthly client of Rob’s for at least 2 years now. He seems to intuitively know where my body needs the most attention. He truly is the best massage therapist I’ve worked with, and I’ve tried many over the years. Don’t miss out on the hot stones, because they are amazing!
