Introduction: Hi, my name is Doug Turet and I'd like to give you the finest massage you have ever received. (Yes, really.) 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 9 awards and more than 300 reviews I have received on sites all across the web (more than 100 of them here), 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 get a solid sense of who I am, how I operate, how much I care about helping people, and how consistently I’m able to help people to reach their therapeutic goals. In 2011, I realized that traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue massages 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. Since then, 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! All you’ll feel is a gentle “melting” of your body, from head to toe. 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: As of March 6th, 2021, I have received both Moderna Covid vaccinations.

Doug is By Far The Best Massage Therapist I Ever Had! He’s very Knowledgeable, Dedicated, Caring, and take his Time. I will definitely return back to see him!
Massage Horizons's reply
Thank you, Diana! I had an absolute blast working with you, and can hardly wait for next month to roll around so I can help you again. There are few things more rewarding than helping someone with muscles as tight as yours were to transform as completely as they did!

This was my first time and not the last. Doug is an amazing therapist and knows what he is doing. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to relieve pain from the body. I would highly recommend him.
Massage Horizons's reply
It was great meeting and working with you, Tony, and grateful that my work was able to help you as much as it did. Anytime someone new comes along who is both in pain and willing to learn about both the causes of and allow me to apply some effective means of treating those discomforts, it’s a good day all around! See you again, next week!

Massage Therapy

I thoroughly enjoyed my massage. He was very respectful and made me feel completely comfortable. Although he was late...he made sure to communicate and keep up to date. He showed immense hospitality
Massage Horizons's reply
I’m so glad that you enjoyed working with me as much as I did with you, Maggie, and again, I’m truly very sorry about our late start. I had set aside 50 minutes for what my map app said should have taken 31, but between a tree cutting, down here, and some police action en route to you, that 31 minutes became almost 80. Next time around, I’ll just plan on setting aside even more time, so as not to keep you waiting.

Massage Therapy

My husband and I were both feeling different types of ache. We both workout and were feeling really sore, but the kicker is that I’m pregnant. He made sure we were both comfortable and our needs were met. My husband couldn’t stop raving about him because he came into the massage with so much pain, and left feeling loose and wonderful, even saying “this is the best sleep I’ve had in a really long time.” I would recommend Doug 100000% he knows what’s he’s doing.
Massage Horizons's reply
Thank you, Vanessa (and Orlando)! I’m truly grateful for both the chance to help the two of you, and the news that he slept so well and painlessly. (And add to that your kind and generous review, and really, how does it get any better than that?) See you in two weeks!

Best Massage Ever!! My experience with Doug was one for the books. Lots of laughs, lots of wisdom shared on the body and how it works, and a great amount of calm produced from our session. I left feeling brand new in a state of zen and very enlightened. I fully recommend getting a massage with Doug Turet, you won’t regret! :)
Massage Horizons's reply
Thank you so much for that, Milan! I can’t wait to see you again, and to help your father get out of pain, as well. I have a feeling it’s going to be an amazing year!

FAQs

  • 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 = $100 _________________________________________ TRADITIONAL MASSAGE THERAPIES: 30 minutes = $60 60 minutes = $100 90 minutes = $145, and 120 minutes = $190 __________________________________________ DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE: 30 minutes = $70 60 minutes = $125 90 minutes = $155, and 120 minutes = $210 __________________________________________ MEDICAL MASSAGE: $47.50 per 15-minute unit of treatment. __________________________________________ MOBILE APPOINTMENTS (within 25 MILES of Norwood, MA): Add $40.00 to above rates to locations within 30 miles of Norwood, MA, to cover travel time, labor and expenses). For more distant destinations, please call for a quote. 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 buying DVDs and streaming classes on new techniques, and then both practicing them on those clients who’ve expressed an interest in being my “crash test dummies for massage”, at no cost, and then incorporating them into my future sessions.
