Richard is extremely gifted in the art of healing and massage. I had tremendous pain in my shoulder and neck before I came to him and after the first session it was greatly reduced. Each time I see him my neck and shoulder thank me! He will tailor the massage to your specific needs and you can tell he truly cares about what he's doing. Very well worth the trip!

Thank you for helping me yesterday at the Mimslyn with a healing massage and helping with my painful elbow that was crushed many years ago. I have only had a slight stinging that lasted very briefly in the elbow since your therapy. Thank you for your miracle healing touch!

Hey Rich, just thought I'd let you know that my symptoms are completely gone. No tightness and no pain at all, no matter how far I stretch my foot. I believe in a lot of things but I'm actually really surprised your method (Energetic Healing) had any effect on me at all. Thanks a ton!

Rich is very professional and calming with excellent customer service. He makes us feel safe and special every time we visit. At each visit Rich asks us how we have been feeling since the last visit and then customizes the massage based on our replies. It may contain Pain Relief, Deep Tissue, Reflexology or other techniques depending on our needs. We have been very pleased with the service and make the 50 minute drive from our home to see Rich each month.

I had shoulder and upper arm pain which bothered me everyday for about 6 months. It caused me to be unable to lift my left arm. After my first visit with Rich, it was completely gone and now my arm is back to normal. I see Rich on a monthly basis now, it is a wondeful experience! He will find what best fits your needs and make any pain go away!

One of the first things I noticed about Rich is that he uses different techniques from the other massage therapists that I’ve been to. Every massage I have had from Rich has been pain free and extremely effective with eliminating the pain I had been experiencing from sitting for prolonged periods of time. I work at the System’s Control Center at the University of Virginia. Each work day I sit at a desk for 10 hours a day monitoring building automation equipment via computer software. Rich has a great personality and is extremely friendly and outgoing. I highly recommend Rich as a massage therapist especially if you have trouble with pain.

I would not have believed this method of healing power, until this was done on my own body. I went to the Mimslyn Inn in Luray, VA. for New Years 2013. After arriving I made an appointment for a massage with Rich. When I met him he introduced himself and asked me if there was anywhere on my body that was in pain. I started to smile (as if he knew) and I said "yes my knees are really bothering me bigtime." He asked how much pain on a scale of 1-10 and i replied "6 or 7".He then asked if I'd let him try a "healing technique" called Quantum Touch, I said "of course". He then he proceeded to put his hand on my left knee very briefly and then said "how does that feel" ....I replied it was about a "2" on the scale from 1-10. He then said "lets try the other knee" and he did. After about 2 or 3 minutes I had no more pain in either knee. It was wonderful! Not a true believer, I thought this pain will return.I called Rich on Jan 02, 2014 only to tell him that there was absolutely nomore pain in either knee. Again, I would not have believed this unless it was done on my own body. This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me, also because there is no knee pain the pain in my hip is also clearing up. TRY IT! UNBELIEVABLE!

I have been seeing Rich for Massage on a monthly basis. I am a “high strung” and tense person by nature; the massages greatly reduce this stress and I find that they improve my overall health. The therapy has lowered my stress level and even my blood pressure. I feel better, am more at peace, not only during the massage but for days thereafter. It seems to erase the build-up of tension and return me to “ground zero” for a fresh start. My various aches and pains are greatly reduced. I recommend massage most highly, and Richard specifically. He is friendly, thoughtful, and concerned to meet my needs. He is attentive to my preferences with pressure and overall comfort. Massage therapy is a significant component in my program for health and well being.

Rich is professional and experienced, but he also has a friendly, relaxing presence. His easygoing personality instantly puts you at ease. He asks questions to get a good idea of where you might be experiencing pain or tension, and he makes sure to go over those areas first. He checks in as needed during the massage and never makes you feel rushed. I stay on-the-go most days due to a hectic schedule. I never considered exactly how this affects me physically until I met with Rich. I'm usually an early riser, even on the weekends, but the day after my massage with Rich I slept in until 11:00am. I haven't been that relaxed in a long time. Rich cares about his clients and it shows.
