I injured my back and needed a massage to help the healing. For that I wanted a masseur who could perform sports massage. I had massage with Matt before, but it was more of a relaxing type. This time, after talking about the circumstances of my injury, Matt proceeded to a series of stretches which loosened up my stiff muscles, following which, he applied increasing pressure on the sore areas. He is a very strong man, but uses the strength in a gentle way. At the same time he creates a very friendly and easy ambiance which makes it easier to relax.
My back felt immediately better and it still does. I highly recommend Matt and hope to have more opportunities to enjoy his healing touch.

I would have to say that this was the best massage I have ever received. Matt is tops in his field. I have had few massages in the past couple of years, and none compare to this. His techniques and skill surpass them all.

This was my second massage appointment with Matt. It was an exceptional experience. Matt is very gifted in reading the body and using multiple techniques during the session. He is at the top of the list in my opinion and I look forward to returning for another fantastic massage in the near future.
