    Amazing strength and techniques. Roger relieved a lot of my pain by finding my trigger points. Listened to all my subtle responses to apply less or more pressure. Every second felt amazing. I can't wait for my next massage! Thanks :-D

    Roger did an excellent job. He was highly professional with a great setup (table with headrest, sheets, blanket, spa music, nice massage cream, etc.). He asked good questions about what I was looking for and gave me a great deep tissue/therapeutic massage. Very nice and professional massage provider - would highly recommend!

    requested a deep tissue/sports massage specifically targeting a long term hamstring problem and a recent wicked knot in shoulder. Roger asked that I fill out a questionnaire before my appointment, and I was very pleased that he read it thoroughly and wanted to discuss before my massage. He was attuned to my reactions to varying amounts of pressure and explained what he was doing while he worked. Most definitely will schedule again and refer friends.

    Roger was great - he was on time, prepared, very gracious, great work ethic and gave an incredible massage. He was hired to give 5-10 minute head/neck/shoulder massages at a brunch/party and the guests said they felt their stress completely melt away. He is awesome and gifted.

    I hired Roger to give my fiancé a deep tissue massage. My fiancé has had many massages in the past and has commented that this massage was "one of the best massages I have had". Which means a lot! Roger was very professional through our conversations, very personable, responsive, and I believe did the best job that he could possibly do. I applaud his attentiveness and excellent work! Great job Roger!!!

    I was in severe pain, could not walk decided to check out the internet, found thumbtack.com . I scheduled a 90 min. Swedish massage in home service thru thumbtack with Rgoer, massage therapist. Not sure what to expect since this was a first, Roger was very punctual and down to earth which eased my worries. Roger was very attentive to what my body could handle due to health issues. Every inch of my body hurt but Roger never rushed, I felt truly relaxed. He has warm and gifted hands. I still have a long way to go, wish I could have him every week, but my pockets are limited. He was thoroughly professional and made sure I was comfortable before, during and after the massage. I would highly recommend others to seek out his services. He's very professional, exceptional skilled, polite, friendly, personable, knowledgable, and has magic hands to ease away aches and pains. - Louise -

    Roger is an excellent masseuse. I had a 60 minute Swedish massage. Strong pressure but not too much. Excellent work on my legs. Also my back. Courteous. Prompt. I highly recommend him to others.

    Roger was thorough and informative. He seemed genuinely interested in the root of my problem. I've visited 4 other therapists over the years and he seems to have a good handle on technique. I will more likely than not return to him for another session.

    Roger is an outstanding massage therapist. He arrived to my home on time and provided very professional service. Roger used the correct amount of pressure during the massage. I hold alot of tension in my neck and Roger was able to get those "knots" out. I would highly recommend Structural Therapy by Roger.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I provide Swedish, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage that range from 1-2 hours. Until we specify the type and duration of massage for you, my initial response from me will be, "Need more info". Prices ranges from $70 - $160 per appointment.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Explaining the step-by-step process of my approach to the massage and the mindset behind my techniques. Even if the client has received massage in the past, their experience may be different than the work I provide. Communication is key and helps to create a level of comfort between client and practicioner.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
650+ hours of in school massage training with Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage. Continuing education in Reflexology, Hot Stone, Sports Therapy. Currently pursuing certification in Thai Massage and Myofascial bodywork.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I discovered massage while in the IT field. From days of sitting at a desk for ours at a time, I could feel my body changing due to the bad posture in my back, neck and shoulders. Pain medication was never an option for me, so began my search for holistic methods. Massage caught my attention and the rest is history.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of meeting others from all walks of life. Everyone from the stay at home parent, office professional, professional athletes, dancers, teachers, etc. A large portion of my current client base, consists of those who have suffered from some form of athletic injury. From weight lifters, Crossfit athletes, competitors.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do your research! There are countless of massage technicians to choose from and it can be overwhelming to decipher how one provider can be different from the dozens of others. Look at their background and do not be afraid to ask questions. This is your one and only body whose hands you are placing your trust into to care for.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Male massage therapists deserve a fair chance as much as a female therapist. Some of the best therapists in the industry are male providers, but are many times discarded because of gender discrimination before a client will give them the opportunity.
