"I have known Devin for more than 10 years. His ability to listen and ferret out what might really be going on, along with deep compassion and genuine empathy, add those 'intangible' values to his work. Devin's talents and skills create a safe, trusting environment and are an integral part of the massage experience. He has helped me immensely and I highly recommend him."

"Because of my disability, I needed to find a massage therapist who could handle the challenging issues I have with my body. It is easy to communicate my needs to Devin and he is able to develop a productive approach to my treatment. I get so much more out of my massage sessions because I have complete trust in Devin as my therapist and in his abilities. Thank Devin!"
