Allan saved me from severe pain yesterday. Not only was he able to accommodate a last minute appointment, he was also an excellent massage therapist. His background in physical therapy sets him apart from other massage therapists. He also seems to care about his clients and want to make sure they feel better.Oct 10, 2017Verified
I was provided with an excellent stress relieving professional massage that left me relaxed like never before. I actually slept so well for the very first time in months. Absolutely wonderful therapist!!Sep 20, 2016Verified
Definitely knowledgeable about muscles and body . Would recommend for SPORTS massage and stretching . Not necessarily for relaxation or upper back/shoulder work.Jul 30, 2018Verified
One of the best massages! Had some bad neck pain that he worked on as well as a regular full body massage and my neck pain was gone shortly after! I was nervous having a male come to my house since I was home alone and had never done that before but he was nothing but PROFESSIONAL. A+Apr 3, 2018Verified
Great massage. Allan accommodated me and came to my house early morning to work on my neck as I was in a lot of pain. Felt better afterward and felt a million times better the next day. Highly recommended!Apr 10, 2017Verified
