This was my first deep tissue massage (ever), and the experience Doug brought me was spectacular! He did a great job making me feel comfortable and relaxed. You can tell that he truly loves what he does and is very knowledgeable in his field. Looking forward to my next session!Apr 6, 2019VerifiedMassage Horizons's reply

I have not had my massage yet but Doug responded immediately and prevented me from doing something potentially dangerous to my health. I appreciate his honesty, knowledge and the fact that my well being was more important than the mighty dollar. I will be using his services when I am cleared by my physician.Sep 29, 2018VerifiedMassage Horizons's reply

So, thank you again, immensely, and please know that I look forward to doing everything possible to get you out of pain and moving comfortably and effortlessly as soon as possible! All my best, Doug
Amazing session with Doug. Best massage I’ve had & truly feel so much better. Had been suffering from significant leg and back discomfort. Doug’s session solved thatNov 3, 2018VerifiedMassage Horizons's reply
Thanks, Jeff! I’m glad I was able to help your body to let go of all of that discomfort, and I look forward to helping you (and it) to unwind even further in our future sessions! And thanks again for the chance to help!
I am extremely happy I went to Massage Horizons! Doug was amazing! I'm a competitive powerlifter and have been struggling to get relief from a variety of issues. After a short phone conversation, Doug came into the appointment with knowledge and understanding of my issues. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting a knowledgeable,relaxing massageOct 15, 2018VerifiedMassage Horizons's reply
Thanks, Sabrina! What great feedback!! (And, best of all, it’s coming from someone who knows her way around the human anatomy better than most, which makes your words just that much more valuable! See you again, soon, Doug
License Type: Massage Therapist (MA)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I base my fees on a very simple principle: the more time, effort and expertise the work requires of me, and the more I have to do (and longer I have to wait to be compensated) for it, the more I charge for it. As such, my fees for traditional Swedish-style relaxation massage are more than those for Energy Work but less than those for Deep Tissue or the far more involved, paperwork-heavy and injury-specific Medical massage techniques. My fees, then are as follows: ENERGY WORK (i.e. REIKI, the ACCESS CONSCIOUSNESS BARS or MTVSS Processes) or GUIDED IMAGERY WORK: 60 MINUTES = $75 _________________________________________ TRADITIONAL MASSAGE THERAPIES: 30 minutes = $50 60 minutes = $90 90 minutes = $130, and 120 minutes = $165 __________________________________________ DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE: 30 minutes = $60 60 minutes = $100 90 minutes = $145, and 120 minutes = $185 __________________________________________ MEDICAL MASSAGE: $50 per 15-minute unit of treatment. __________________________________________ MOBILE APPOINTMENTS (within 25 MILES of Norwood, MA): Add $35.00 to above rates, to cover travel time, labor and expenses). This rate applies to any of the above services, when performed within the comfort and convenience of your own ground level or elevator-serviced home or office location. In order to address your needs as comfortably and effectively as I can, I will provide the massage table or chair and stool, plus the necessary linens, towels, bolsters, digital stereo system, either lotion, cream or oil necessary to facilitate the required techniques for a successful session and, if the climate dictates, a regulated heat pad. For any service location that does not offer either easy ground floor or elevator access to the treatment room, special arrangements may need to be made. Please call in advance, to discuss these.)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I have them begin by filling out an intake forms, to give me a confidential view of their current health condition and recent injuries (because there are some conditions, illnesses and/or injuries for which massage is actually contraindicated, where receiving a massage could actually harm the person, so I need to know where we stand before I begin). Then, I take the time to ask them about what's been going on in their bodies, and/or their lives, to be fully present and focused in on their answers, and to let their comments, their bodies and my experience inform me as to how best to approach their long or short-term treatment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes, constantly! In addition to being a voracious reader of books and trade journals, I attend both physical and virtual classes and am constantly renting or buying DVDs on new techniques, and sharing and comparing them with other therapists I meet.
