Latest Review: tl;dr - Derek consistently does outstanding work and customizes the session for you as a whole person - mind and body.
I am very picky about who I see for massage. Therefore, as long as Derek is within driving distance (3 hours or so), I will continue to go exclusively to him. Think of all the things you want in a massage, and that is what you'll get: professionalism, relaxation, education, healing, and above all else - high quality body work.
Derek is extremely observant and will notice subtle nuances, such as imbalances in your posture as well as changes in your breathing during the session. In my opinion, this is what makes him such a great therapist. In combination with a personalized discussion of your needs, these observations are the key to customizing a session unique to you. He excels at soothing relaxing massage as well as deep tissue for sore muscles and tight fascia. Afterward, he'll take the time to answer any questions you have and can recommend stretches and exercises to get you through to the next session.
