WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
"Trevor is an incredibly gifted healer and I couldn't recommend him more highly [...] I have been working with him semi-regularly for a year. Before working with Trevor, I tried to address my back pain by seeing a DO, two different physical therapists, a chiropractor, and a craniosacral therapist with little relief. When my pain was at its worst, the thing I looked forward to most in my week was a session with Trevor because I knew through his practice, he would actually make it go away."
"His Thai massage focuses on the body and the releases experienced travel all the way through to the inner self and subconscious. I have had quite a bit of body work done and am a Reiki healer myself and nothing compares to the educated and mindful massages that Trevor administers. [...] Whether you're experiencing physical or mental pain, Trevor is your massage therapist!"
–Madeline, Reiki healer & Sustainability coordinator
"I would highly recommend Trevor to anyone and already have done so. I have traveled extensively and have had massages in many parts of the world and Trevor's rates up with the best. He is very caring and certainly knows the body and what part may effect another and works on all areas even though one might think that it is only upper back pain. [...] I think his dedication to yoga and its vast benefits comes through when he is massaging."
