My Thai massage from Ric was nothing short of an excellent experience from start to finish. He’s a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner who takes the time and genuine interest to understand the client’s needs. Rates are market competitive, but the service is superior, and you’ll walk away feeling like a million dollars!
Today I had my first (out of what will be many) Thai massages with Ric Mathews. I have one word to describe my experience... UNBELIEVABLE. This was the best massage I ever had in my life. For years, I experienced a very tight hip flexor from an injury I incurred about 8 years ago. With the combination of the stretching a deep massage, Ric was able to almost double the range of motion of my hip. I could not believe it when it happened. I literally felt the hip muscles relax. I am a pretty big guy with dense muscles and Ric was able to penetrate the muscle and get me to relax. He is very aware of how much pressure to use, and knows to regress and progress if necessary. Once the massage was over, I was hoping for more. I am literally booking 2 hours with this guy. He is well worth it. Phenomenal. I never felt more relaxed after a massage. Like I literally felt like I was walking in the clouds on my way home. I totally recommend Ric, as he is professional, knowledgeable and passionate about his work. Thank you , Ric!
I just wanted to thank you and share with you what a spiritually moving, relaxing, and much needed massage that you performed on me today.The rest of my day was made much better by the way it started at your studio today. From the minute that I walked in, the sounds, the scents, the cleanliness of the space relaxed me. Keep in mind that this was my first Thai Massage ever, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Well...you took care of that by taking a few minutes before starting to explain what a Thai Massage was, how it works and its benefits. For that, I thank you. You were very professional, your voice calm and soothing, always making sure that I was OK. The pressure was pefect and you reminded me to relax and breathe.There were so many things that I want to say were my favorites, the COBRA was by far the most stand out - I didn’t think I could do that!! I carry my stress in my lower back and neck and you found those tension points and took time to work on them. I love the stretches for my legs as well. I, being a personal trainer, work my legs often and i do stretch and use the foam roller, but the stretches you did today showed me I had only hit the tip of that iceberg LOL! I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!! The abdominal work?? WOW!! I had no idea, when you started applying pressure to my abs I wanted to immediately sing your praise. I have never had that feeling of release before. I could go on and on about how I felt after my 90 mins in your hands. I know that I will return, I know I need more and I need to be consistent for best results. I will refer you to my clients, friends and family!!!
Ric has an incredibly calming and centering energy. My massage was an overall wonderful and relaxing experience - his pressure was great and he communicated just the right amount during the massage; he checked in to make sure everything was okay and on point, but didn’t talk so much that I felt like I couldn’t relax and melt into the massage. I would highly recommend him - get ready to feel relaxed, centered and stretched out!
My experience with Ric reaffirms why massage is one of life’s most brilliant indulgences.His firm yet gentle touch intuitively works with your body for a brilliant balance of support and pressure, stretch and resistance. This was one of the most blissful massages I’ve had in years, I’m already planning my next!
That was amazing. And, compared to the Thai Yoga I got before was FAR better. :)
What can I say, it was just amazing. I didn’t expect to cry, but I felt such an emotional release. Thank you so much.
Wow- I have never gotten a Thai Yoga massage before. But now, I don’t think I want to go back to the other types of massage. I only want this - its just amazing!
Was great meeting you. Thank you for taking me to a calm, peaceful zone. Enjoy the weekend!
Ric has a profound ability to be present in his sessions that truly puts one at ease and allows for total body relaxation and surrender. His technique is both soothing and intense and afterwards I felt like I’d released a few years worth of tension.
