Swedish massage (standard),
Deep tissue massage,
Chad's style of massage was perfect for what I needed. I have been having back and neck problems for a while now and he intuitively knew where he needed to focus on without me even telling him where it hurt the most. He covered all the major and minor muscle groups and did so at the perfect level of pressure for me. I need a 10 out of 10 pressure-wise and he fulfilled that and more. He's is the first masseur I have ever had who was able to do that, so I was pleasantly surprised. His space is clean and well put together. His music was nice and relaxing. The hot towels he had were amazing. I felt like I was at a high-end spa. I will definitely be back for more.Jun 7, 2018Verified

Amazing massage. I´m very happy to got this great, effective, deep sport massage which helped me a lot with my muscle sore. Every time again. Thank you.Nov 24, 2017
Chad is highly professional and knowledgeable in his craft. Due to my schedule, it's hard to get to a physical therapist/sports massage during business hours, so a surgery recommended contacting him and I was able to get an evening appointment! Did not disappoint and I will be back for another session.Oct 23, 2017
It had been a long time since I had such an affective massage. The attention to my troubled areas were great. Chad really understood the issues I was having during our intake interview, and he surely made sure to address them. I will definitely go back, and I am talking about his work to all my friends.Jul 23, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. My standard rate is $150/hour. I provide discounts for loyalty, frequency, testimonials and referrals. The price I advertise on Thumbtack is an introductory discounted rate of 20% off for first time clients only. There's lots of differing options depending on how frequent you are wanting to visit and how long-term of a commitment you are willing to make. The most loyal clients that visit on average twice a week or more can see that hourly rate discount to as low as $90/hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I meet with a new client we discuss their goals for treatment and I get a brief medical history concerning skeletal or muscular issues as well as any systemic illness. I then describe my approach as it applies to them as an individual, how I will attempt to alleviate their symptoms to return them to optimal performance of the musculoskeletal system. That's just the analytic part. We then start to converse, getting to know one another while I start with the massage. I think it's important that my clients understand what it is I'm trying to achieve when I'm massaging tense areas, so during the first few sessions theres a lot of conversation about anatomy, physiology, structural integration and acupressure theory, etc. I also want to be sure there's a rapport, mutual respect, and trust that develops. The relationship is physical, and I realize that some clients will only relax their muscles once I've proven not only my abilities as a massage therapist, but that I'm relate-able to as a decent person as well.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a lifetime of education, both formal and informal, when it comes to massage. When each of my parents were about the age I am now they both studied massage and became certified therapists albeit in differing fields. My dad studied structural integration and Rolfing, and is now in Eastern medicine school studying acupuncture, herbs, and shiatsu. My mother on the other hand became a reiki master and specializes in cranial-sacral treatments. She dedicates her practice patients dealing with treatment for various cancers. With the belief in the effectiveness of both of those differing sides of body and energy work I decided on a formal education in Kinesiology, receiving my Bachelor's of Science from the University of Texas, and surrounded myself with practitioners of acupuncture, reiki, yoga, and structural integration. After working for Equinox Fitness Clubs for many years, directing the personal training department on client retention and behavioral change strategy, I started an endeavor that would solidify my understanding of how structural integration can benefit both athletes and individuals engaged in regular exercise. I, myself, started practicing mixed martial arts and sought treatment of a structural integration based sports massage therapist. He healed me every week, allowing me to compete with those mixed martial artists that were 10+ years my junior. The next evolution in my understanding of the body came when I took a 1 year global sabbatical, experiencing and studying massage in 30 different countries, including Thailand and Turkey.
