Introduction: Hi, my name is Doug Turet and I'd like to give you the best massage you have ever received. (Yes, I really mean that!) Ever since my massage therapy journey began in 2009, I have been helping people to get out of pain, stay out of pain, and live their lives more easily and comfortably, and if you'll read even a few of the 12 awards and more than 300 reviews I have received on sites all across the web (more than 140 of them on this site, alone), and note the A+ rating I’ve received from the Better Business Bureau, even though I am not one of its paying members, I think you'll pretty quickly get a solid sense of who I am, how I operate, how much I care about helping people, and how often I’ve been able to help people to reach their therapeutic goals. In 2012, I realized that traditional bodywork approaches weren't giving my clients enough of the results that I believed were possible for them, so I took the first of many additional steps to improve upon that by training first in energy therapies (including Reiki and the Access Consciousness Bars®️ and MTVSS®️) and then, in 2014, becoming certified as both a Medical Massage Practitioner, a Life Coach and a Solution-Focused Coach, and in 2015, continuing on with trainings in MyoFascial Release, Sports and Corporate (Chair) Massages and, more recently, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, AIS/PIS (Active & Passive Isolated Stretching) and two Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, GuaSha (also known as “IASTM”, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation and Cupping, which are two examples of the phrase “everything old is new again”: ancient approaches to MyoFascial Release and enhancing both soft tissue mobility and blood flow. I've developed a proprietary method for delivering TRULY DEEP Deep Tissue and Sports Massages that feel so gentle and nurturing that 99+% of the time, you won’t have a sense of how deeply into your tissues my hands have traveled, and you won’t feel like you’ve been “beaten up”! All you’ll feel is a gentle “melting” of your body’s deepest and longest-held restrictions and limitations, from head to toe! You deserve to feel absolutely amazing in every way that’s legal and ethical. I’m here to make that happen. ABOUT COVID-19: I follow the latest State and CDC guidelines for COVID-19 preparation and protection, because I believe that both of our lives — and those of at least some of those we meet throughout the day — depend on it. This includes scanning and recording both of our temperatures before work begins, cleaning and disinfecting all contact surfaces before and after each session, using sheets, pillowcases and blankets that have been washed and dried at virus-killing temperatures and then carefully folded into individually sealed bags, as well as (upon your request) my use of hypoallergenic surgical rubber (nitrile) gloves, eye protection and either a washable or disposable smock, and your and my mutual wearing of KN95 face masks throughout our time together. (And whether or not you already have a mask of some sort, I will provide you with a new factory-sealed one at the beginning of your session, to be worn throughout it, because I can’t control where the mask you’ve arrived with has been, but mine are still sealed in the bags they came in.) You see, I don't just want you to feel fantastic today; I want you to continue to feel fantastic for the rest of your life, and I want your sessions with me to play an important role in that. So, thank you for offering me this chance to work with you, and you can rest assured that I will do my level best to make sure that yours is the among the finest massages I have ever given! UPDATE: On 10/27/21, I received my Moderna Covid booster shot. UPDATE: As of March 6th, 2021, I have received both Moderna Covid vaccinations.

Seems like a nice guy. He says he’s been a career coach for his life but all I see is about massages. He seems very eager and very pushy to which I don’t think it’s professional. You never gave me the chance to see what he was about. He always wanted to know what I was about and I don’t feel comfortable with that.

Jodelle posted a request for a life coach, then resorted to defensiveness, blame-throwing and accusations when I’d asked her if she could clarify what it was that she did and didn’t enjoy about her current position, what goals she was hoping to achieve through coaching and when she would like to join me for a free, no-obligation introductory “chemistry check” call or zoom session, to figure out whether our styles would be compatible for the coaching process. (And clearly, they are not!) Along the way, I had explained to her that I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2012, a certified life- and solution focused coach since 2014 and that I had begun my coaching career training musicians from 1977-2012, and that the coaching process requires meeting either in person, via zoom or the equivalent or by phone, but apparently, she wasn’t open to any of those options, preferring 500-word texts. In the end, I wish her every possible success in first figuring out who it is that she wants to be and then whether or not she’s willing to work with someone else in pursuit of lifestyle choices that suit her better.

A truly gifted therapist who goes beyond the norm in intuitive, helpful ways to assist therapeutically with particular physical ailments. Highly personable and very in tune with the language your body speaks. I hope we get to work with him again!

Excellent massage, Doug explained what he was doing and why throughout. I left feeling much better than before I went in.

Thanks, Chris! That’s great news. I enjoyed the communication between us as much as the results I was able to help create with you, and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Doug is absolutely incredible. He has changed my life in many ways!! Not only does he have a special touch but he is extremely knowledgeable with many things in life. I’m addicted to going and getting work done with him. It started with fascia work then progressed to his access bar work and life coaching. He is simply one of the most amazing human beings I have met. I️ recommend him 1000%. Than you Doug for being you.

Wow, Sabrina... thank you — that’s some pretty high praise! (In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever received a more exuberant review, before!) It feels great to be recognized, like that, and I really do appreciate it but, what’s even better than that is the knowledge that you’ve been able to take the tools I’ve offered and run with them! There’s just no better reward than finding out that your efforts have helped someone else to more fully live the life they were meant to. Thank you for that... I really appreciate it!
