Introduction: On February 4th I received my second COVID vaccination. Be safe. Stay safe. Get vaccinated and get your therapy from a therapist who has been vaccinated. Don't take a risk you don't have to take. I have been told I have hands of gold and I inherited them from my mom who was a nurse as was her sister, my cousin, my sister as well as another sister who is a gardener and with her loving touch nurtures things to grow. I strive to let my strokes match your needs whether you prefer a deep massage of a cloud floating massage. I am also well versed in medical massage if this a direction we need to go. If requested I can add in personal training to our program. One of the highest complements I ever received was from a woman who I massaged weekly all through her pregnancy. I treated her every Monday and the week she gave birth it was on a Friday. Guess who came through my door the following Monday, yup, mom. She said to me, Richard I am now giving up my scheduled massage when I can finally lay on my stomach. I was also flown once to Alaska from NY to massage a couple who were running in the Anchorage Mayor's Marathon and did not want anyone else. I massaged them the day before the marathon, the day of and the day after. The following day they said they felt so good they passed on their massage and charted a plane and flew around Mount Denali. How about that for references. In regards to Massage Therapy and the Covid-19, I sanitize the treatment table before and after each massage, I wear a mask and I sanitize my hands before and after each treatment. I also request that the client supply the sheets and towels as needed.

Richard was extremely knowledgeable with his approach to my medical massage. He helped me to understand additional methods necessary for my recovery that I shared with my physical therapist. Thank you Richard!

Hands down no pun intended this was the best massage I’ve ever had and I’ve had many. I understand why others have said Richard has hands of gold. I especially liked that he has experience as a physical therapist as I’m recovery from knee surgery. I am looking forward to scheduling more sessions with him. If you are in need of a massage therapist he’s the one. Richard won’t disappoint.

My father had back surgery a month ago and was in desperate need of some PT/massage. Richard proved to be extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to and able to work on Dads specific needs. It was a great experience, I’d recommend his services to anyone in need of professional healing hands.
