About this pro

How does your service stand out?

When I work with my clients I ask questions first to hear what you are in need of and then at the beginning of every massage I take time to feel what your body tells me you need.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy the satisfaction that, when receiving massage on a consistent basis, during every massage we are working to influence positive empowerment of you entire body; from the inside boost of your immune system to the outside invigoration of your muscles.

    Highly recommend
    Andrew was absolutely wonderful. I have been in pain for a better part of the last month and I have better range of motion and slept better than I have in many weeks. I look forward to working with Andrew on reconditioning my body for more flexibility and stress relief. I highly recommend him to anyone. He was punctual, and very professional as well as he had a very soothing demeanor.

    Excellent services. His 90 minutes service is highly value for money. He knew exactly what I wanted and customized his massage accordingly. I took a deep-tissue. Completely relieved from the stress and slept like a baby. Thanks Andrew!

    Exquisite service at an exceptional price.
    Andrew was absolutely excellent. He did a superb job working with me and assessing my level of tolerance as a first time getting a massage customer. I could feel results as he worked and upon completion I felt a great deal of relief. I look forward to our next appointment.

    More relaxed than ever before!
    Andrew came today and it was the most amazing massage I've ever had! He got deep into my muscles and even worked all of the knots out of my feet. I've already scheduled him to come back next week!

    Big "Thank You Sir👍🏽" to Andrew and Soothing Escape.
    Man I loved his pressure. Andrew knows his craft. He came in and set me up on his table and went to work. I had a low back spasm and some pain shooting down through my foot, Andrew released my hips which released everything else, now Im as good as new. Big "Thank You Sir👍🏽" to Andrew and Soothing Escape.

    I fell asleep as he was working on me, I have not been able to sleep for months properly and Andrew helped me fall asleep as he was working on me.
    Excellent and professional work. My lower back has been killing me for the past few months after my car accident. Andrew was able to drive to my house within an hour of me making the request. His energy was great. When Andrew walked into my house felt his posative intentions to truley help me. before he began, he clearly went over what had happened in my car accident and got to the root of my pain. My low back hurts and I have worked with about 6 different therapist since my accident and none have gone into detail about how my pain makes me feel and more so how we could work to fix my problem. Very thankful for Thumb Tack, more so thankful to Andrew actually helping feel better. I fell asleep as he was working on me, I have not been able to sleep for months properly and Andrew helped me fall asleep as he was working on me. There is no way i could ever thank him enough. I will definetly be calling Andrew again.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Every session and every body is unique, thus I begin each session with concise questions that will provide clear dictation to the root of your discomfort, right the areas that we will be working in our session. Once I have understood what you are looking for from you massage, I outline the flow of the massage starting with a play by play of the groups of muscle we will work into first. After that, I will give you privacy to undress to your personal comfort level, lie face down underneath the blanket beginning a slow and long deep breath exercise. At this point I will re-enter the room ready, placing my hands on your shoulders to center myself allowing your body to become accustom to my touch. massage begins.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Certified in: - Deep Tissue Performance Therapy. - Manual Lymphatic Drainage. - Advanced Sports Massage. - Release of the Ilospsoas/ Quadratus Lumborum.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing System: $65 for the 60 minute massage. $85 for the 90 minute massage. $130 for the 120 minute massage.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I found massage therapy through my major in college, which is physical therapy. As a eighteen year old I did not understand the befits of massage and why it was compared to professions such as physical therapy. This found curiosity lead me to ATI, the institute I obtained my license from, where I was introduced to my professors, all of which individually held ten plus years in the medical field at the time. I made the full connection of the relevance of massage therapy once the core curriculum was presented to me. filled with nine months of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Hydrotherapy, Spa Therapies, along with other Swedish and Deep Tissue massage techniques. Massage has given me a hands on grasp of the body I would not have received from book learning alone. Boosting my enthusiasm about human body work and improving the physics of those I come in contact with.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with many ranges of people from; the elderly inside nursing homes providing gentle compression and Manual Lymphatic Drainage, to working with the children of Our Child's House of Baylor in Las Colinas observing the rehabilitation of the patients that frequented the facility. A passion in sports and performance training lead to my tenure working with the athletes at Paramount: Strength and Conditioning where I acted as the Clinical Strength Coach, there to prevent injury during/post of powerlifting and strong-man competition
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I believe that when it comes to massage, time is subjective. A star Dallas Cowboys athlete may take a few minutes to loosen up his muscle around the shoulders and hips; while on the other hand the homemaker of 3 young children may take a whole hour on her neck and feet. I am always encouraging my clients to upgrade to a 90 minute massage, which I feel is the most optimum session to RELEASE then STRETCH your muscle.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Trust and have a open mind to adjusting your personal lifestyle. In order for anything new to happen in your life, one must accept change. Take in as much that is given to you and apply your newly found knowledge to life.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I am an empathetic therapist that understands i must patiently share my knowledge with the people i come in contact with in order to empower their lives and to enrich my life.
