Swedish massage (standard),
Deep tissue massage,
Dan was the only therapist who responded to my initial request and was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and honest about what he could and could not do to help my client with MS. She was very happy and relaxed after the massage, something she needed very much, and looks forward to working with him again. Thank you Dan. :)Sep 16, 2019Verified
Dan was the best massage therapist that I have ever had! He was so knowledgeable and immediately made me feel comfortable and confident in his services. He tried multiple modalities to try to get at a deep muscle pain in my shoulder/back and I left feeling relief and like a new man! I would highly recommend Dan and will definitely be scheduling with him again!Feb 17, 2019Verified
What I like about working with Dan Gehret from Pain Relief Pittsburgh is he is able to reduce or eliminate my pain with strategies that range from deep tissue massage to Neural Reset Therapy (NRT). I love deep tissue massage, and Dan has the strength and skillfulness to apply it in a way that's remarkable. The benefits of NRT continue to blow my mind. I'm approaching 60 years old and do very physical work that often leaves me with "sharp-edged" pain in my joints. Dan's ability to discern the roots of my pain and reduce or eliminate it is profound (really). Dan is extremely bright, gifted, and effectively uses his background in Physical Therapy as he thoughtfully approaches his work as a massage therapist. I recommend him whole-heartedly.Dec 26, 2018
This was my first time getting a massage, so I was a little skeptical. Dan was great and made me feel comfortable right away. He explained everything he was doing and was very attentive. I feel great afterwards and will definitely be making another appointment!Dec 31, 2019Verified
I have extremely stubborn pain that often does not respond to typical massages. Dan listened to me and my body and was able to get rid of a headache I had been suffering from for five days. I will book him again!Feb 17, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My listed prices are for office visits or home visits. I often do 2 to 3 hour sessions at a cost of $30 for each half-hour in addition to the 60-minute rate. I do not expect tips. I offer a 10% discount on the purchase of a 3-session package.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When you first contact me, we discuss your goals and what kind of treatment you want. Regardless of your goals, you choose whether to remain clothed or undressed under a sheet. If you want an in-home visit, I need a space of at least 8 by 5 feet for my heated massage table. I also do chair massage.
