Fantastic experience. I am relatively inexperienced with massage so Elise took the time to explain the benefits of the different types of therapy. She adapted her methodology on the fly to focus on problem areas. I left feeling great. Will definitely return.

CHRIS WAS AMAZING! From the very beginning, just in communication and finding a date and time that worked. He was very accommodating, considering we were from out of town, my husband being here to train three shifts on a massive machine, only he ended up doing the majority of the work when there are supposed to be, at minimum, three men working: one to operate, one to shaft and one to inspect, and three is a low number! There should at least be two inspectors! He was working over 12 hours a day, coming back not only exhausted, but in pain. When the machine breaks out, or there are issues with the formers, miters, hot melt or you name it, my husband has to get on his hands and knees and crawl in, through and around the machine as best he can. My husband is not a small fella: broad shoulders, meaty with some weight on him, so doing this is a challenge in and of itself, the way he has to contort his body. Let's not forget standing on concrete all those hours on completely flat feet. So I thought I would try to find someone who would come to him considering he was working 9am to 9pm at the time. There were two people to choose from and the choice was easy because the reviews on Chris were phenomenal! And his price was cheaper, which was a bonus, but not the reason I chose him!!! My only hesitation was that he was a male and my husband had only ever had one other massage which was by a female. I explained this to Chris and he said he would do everything he could to ensure my husband was comfortable and didn't feel awkward. So, we booked the appointment for 9:30, I figure just enough time for him to get back to the hotel and shower. Things didn't go as planned; he worked from 7am to 7pm but Chris already had another booking so we kept our original 9:30 time slot. My husband ended up being later than I thought he would be and was just leaving to get dinner at 9pm. I let Chris know and he said it wasn't a problem and he was just headed our way now. I didn't realize he had sent me another message letting me know he was here in the lobby relaxing, for us to take our time and to let him know when we were ready. After reading that i quickly cleaned up (I had just begun to eat after getting my husband and two grandkids settled). I told him we were ready for him, and kids being kids, the grandkids just had to wait in the hall. Thankfully my husband was too tired to notice, since this was a surprise! When Chris arrived the door was already open (the grandkids) so I walked him in and introduced him to my husband (who was lounging on the bed watching tv). He didn't know what to think since he didn't see the table at first...he thought "She's bringing another man into our bedroom??" Hahahahaha forgetting the grandkids are here! HEY! We aren't that old, we're young grandparents in our forties! Then he saw the table and relaxed thinking "massage" and was happy with his surprise. He was so impressed with the massage Chris gave him that he forgot to be uncomfortable about it being a male giving a massage as opposed to a female. He raved about Chris all day Sunday and said it was a shame we have to go back now that we found him. Maybe one more before we leave Saturday wouldn't hurt? Maybe for myself too? At his prices you sure can't beat it! He's a lovely person too, we had a nice chat after. He has a calming and soothing voice, apparently amazing hands, but more importantly he has the education of how to use and manipulate his hands to help you feel your best. There's a difference between a masseuse and a massage therapist, a HUGE difference! In addition to doing this "on the side" he does is as his "job" at a Chiropractors office. Trust me, the man knows his stuff or a Chiropractor would never hire him! And then he gives up evenings and weekends to do the same thing, you might think money, right? No, when you meet him you know right away that isn't it at all! His calling is this, to do his part in "healing", taking pain away and helping someone feel better. It's his passion, which might explain his pricing; he's not out to get rich, he's the helping and healing type and he's very good at it which means he takes it seriously because it is important to him that when your time is up you feel better than when he arrived. As i mentioned, we chatted for a bit and he shared a couple of personal stories with us which reaffirmed my feelings about him! To those who may be wondering, no, he did not preach self help, holistic, herbal or anything. He didn't preach anything, he just gave my husband an AMAZING massage (probably somewhat therapeutic or reflexology), we had a chat and he was on his way. He was extremely accommodating and flexible, prompt (even early), personable but not certainly not over the top, well spoken and somewhat soft spoken and a gentleman. Hire Chris just once and I'll bet you won't ever hire anyone else!!! The entire experience is one we won't forget! Thank you, Chris! Monique & Rob Herriman

I've had some great massages but this was the best I've ever had. I like a lot of pressure, Lance delivered. He really zoned in on some knots between my shoulders, all my trouble spots got lots of attention. I got a 90 minute massage but may even do a 2 hour next time. I loved that Lance brought his equipment and traveled to me. It was a very smooth process. I would highly recommend Lance for massage therapy.

I was referred to Breeana Jackson by a friend. She is a skilled and dedicated professional...always attentive and thorough. Her primary focus is to create an outstanding customer experience. Her massage therapy is both relaxing and therapeutic. I can not be more pleased with the ongoing physical, mental and spiritual benefits I derive from her service.

Alex came to me on a holiday which is unheard of. Thank you very much for your time and professional knowledge in massage therapy. Deep tissue is what I asked for and had to tap out twice, unless you have a desire for pain or an extremely high threshold I'd suggest a strong swedish or sports. Alex has the strength and know how to dissipate knots built up from stress or something else. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you in the future. Good luck Alex.

Exceptional therapist. She has massaged me for years which has kept me from having shoulder and back surgeries. Sheri's knowledge of trigger points can't be matched.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is classified as an alternative healing method, but licensed naturopathic doctors share some of the same academic background as conventional medical doctors and can often prescribe some medications. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), naturopathic medicine is holistic care that addresses a wide range of problems including (but not limited to) allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Naturopathic medicine aims to strengthen and empower the body and its organs to heal itself through low-force interventions. Here are some examples of the type of medical services often provided by naturopathic doctors, as cited by the AANP:

  • Clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing
  • Nutritional medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy)
  • Hygiene
  • Counseling
  • Minor surgery
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Intravenous and injection therapy
  • Naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth)

Do naturopaths take insurance?

Many naturopathic doctors accept insurance, but a separate question is whether your insurance covers alternative and naturopathic services. There are several steps you can take to find out:

  • Verify whether you live in one of the 20 states that currently licenses naturopathic physicians:
    • Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
  • Confirm whether your insurance will cover naturopathic medical services. Read your insurance plan’s fine print, verify whether naturopathic doctors fall into your insurance carrier’s definition of a doctor, and confirm that the care you are receiving is considered medically necessary. Questions to ask your insurance provider could include:
    • Am I covered for this treatment by a naturopathic physician?
    • Do I need a referral?
    • Is there a list of approved naturopathic doctors in my network?
    • What will the co-pay be?
    • Are there limits to my naturopathic coverage?
  • Before seeking medical care, it’s key to understand the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a naturopath. Anyone may advertise themselves as a naturopath, while to be a licensed naturopathic doctor, a person must complete academic and clinical training.

Can naturopathic doctors prescribe medication?

Licensed naturopathic doctors can prescribe some pharmaceutical medication. Naturopathic doctors complete academic training similar to that of conventional physicians: a bachelor’s degree with a focus on pre-med studies, followed by a four-year residential naturopathic medical program whose first two years have a similar foundation to that of a conventional medical school. After completing their studies, they must pass a post-doctoral exam. Although licensed naturopathic physicians are able to prescribe medication, they usually focus on prevention rather than treatment of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor will offer a holistic approach to your care that encompasses your mental, physical and emotional health. While they will prescribe medication as needed to treat illness, they are also likely to be creating shifts in your lifestyle and nutrition to effect deeper changes in your body’s response to illness.   

How do you find a good naturopath?

It’s important not to get misled by the title “naturopath” when searching for a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor is a licensed professional, while anyone who so desires can call themselves a naturopath. A naturopathic doctor has completed eight years of schooling and is licensed to provide high-quality medical care. When searching for a naturopathic doctor, a good place to start is by researching your state’s licensing and regulatory body for that profession.

Currently, 20 U.S. states license the practice of naturopathic medicine. For those seeking holistic, body-centered healing solutions, a naturopathic doctor can be a good fit. They use natural medicines as well as treatments such as electrotherapy and ayurvedic medicine to encourage the body to heal. Once you have determined a list of naturopathic physicians who are licensed in your state, look for reviews, ask for referrals, and interview the physician in person or by phone to find the right care provider for your health needs.

How long do naturopathic doctors go to school?

Like conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous academic and clinical training prior to practice. Typically naturopathic doctors go to school for eight years. There are currently 20 states in the U.S. that provide licensing for naturopathic doctors. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, a naturopathic doctor must complete a bachelor’s degree and an accredited four-year residential naturopathic medical program, and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination, the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX), in order to receive a license or registration to practice medicine.

The first two years of the residential naturopathic medical program cover many of the same areas of study as conventional medical schools. Naturopathic doctors provide primary patient holistic care. The goal of naturopathic medicine is preventative care and a focus on low force intervention healing methods. This can include natural medicines, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and much more. Naturopathic doctors often work in tandem with conventional medical doctors, as the two practices complement one another.
