Testimonials

Oct. 14, 2017

By LB in Saint Louis, MO

I saw Gavin's ad on St. Louis Craigslist 2 days ago and made my first appointment (outcall to my home). He arrived on time, was friendly and polite. He listened to me as I explained I am in the beginning stages of a recurrance of Frozen Shoulder Syndrome. I received an allover body massage which I needed to reestablish a basic sense of balance in my body, as it has been thrown so out of wack from accomodating my shoulder pain.

He used a Swedish Sports Massage technique that literally made my muscles "buzz" with a slight vibration as they released and relaxed. He also used some trigger point therapy on me too. I was surprised how he coud accomplish with one knowledgable pass over the right muscles more healing than other massage therapists have done in repeated workings of the same areas.

I went ahead and scheduled a 45 minute yoga/self massage training for myself and a friend for today, followed by individual massages for each of us. The yoga training included stretches designed specifically to address our individual areas of concern. It included a customized worksheet for each of us to use on our own time as well. The techniques are a form of self massage to help with our concern areas that we can do on our own.

After our unique yoga lesson with Gavin, my friend had her massage. Afterwards she said she felt like she could easily take a nap. She usually has a high anxiety level, so this was a wonderful thing to hear her say!

Then it was my turn to have my second massage with him in as many days. He focused primarily on my Frozen Shoulder issue and I now feel like I am in a different body afterwards. My range of motion is dramatically improved, but more importantly, I have virtually no pain! Instead, I feel like going out tonight and am moving freely about!

I would also like to comment on his overall demeanor. He has an intelligent humility and warmth about him that makes for you wanting to have him as a friend. I referred him, with full confidence, to my good friend. And would recommend him to anyone considering a massage with him. It may sound corny, but he truly is a Master of Massage - a genuinely gifted healer.

Thank you Gavin - I can't wait for my next massage from you when you're back in St. Louis again!

Gavin is a true professional who delivered a refreshing and relaxing massage experience. He tailored the session to address my problem areas, and even had the courtesy after the massage to explain what was leading to some of the issues I was having. Overall, Gavin has a great energy and made me very feel comfortable. I left feeling rejuvenated and will schedule with him again. Highly recommended!

By Craig in Oklahoma City, OK

Do yourself a favor and get a massage from Gavin! I have had many massages from many different therapists across the globe, and Gavin's is by far one of the best. He used several techniques I had never experienced before. He seemed intuned to my body and how it responded to the pressure and stretches, constantly checking to see if I was comfortable. Not only is he great at what he does, he believes in it. And he is very kind. I walked away feeling very relaxed and stress free. I'm looking forward to his next trip to OKC

By Stevo in Salt Lake City, UT

I never submit online reviews for anything (ever) but thought I would for Gavin. I was checking out massuerfinder.com and saw that he was scheduled for a visit to Salt Lake City. I normally don’t bother with visiting therapists (I prefer to support local therapists) but I was lured in by his picture, impressed with the other reviews, and then really hooked when I found out he wasn’t just in town for a few days and then heading back home but was instead touring the country (something I’ve always wanted to do). So I took a chance and scheduled an appointment with Gavin, and I’m really glad that I did. He used a technique of deep, long massages followed by very light touching with some stretches thrown in, frequently asking for feedback on pressure and intensity. For me it was just about the perfect therapeutic massage. I highly recommend him.

One caveat … I was really kind of bummed driving home after the session, and I realized it was because he wasn’t practicing locally and there’s a good chance our paths might not cross again (another reason for supporting local therapists!) but I’ve added him to my favorites and hope we’re in the same city again at some point. (It’s the first time I’ve met someone that I think I could use as a regular therapist, and he’s not local! Aargh!)

Since he’s touring the country, I highly recommend making an appointment with Gavin if he comes to your town (even if he can’t be your regular therapist).

By Jay in Lake Saint Louis, MO

Gavin is a genuine cool guy and an expert at his craft. I went to him because of some soreness in my forearms that keeps coming back due to my workout routines which incorporate a lot of chin-ups and pull-ups. Gavin first asked if I had a focus area and then adjusted the work flow so that he could give extra attention to the problem area I came for. I have been to other therapists and when I ask for specific work it is largely ignored.

Gavin's technique was amazing and unlike any of the previous massage experiences I have had in the past. He has combined his knowledge of anatomy, what he learned in massage school, along with some professional learning he continues to engage in to create a unique technique that truly gave me the relief I needed in my forearms.

I think that the pressure I asked for would have been extreme for a lot of people but I enjoy this extra deep pressure and Gavin was able to do the job I requested and adjusted his pressure according to my wishes always asking about if it was the right amount.

Massage with Gavin is a real massage and not some flake body worker who doesn't know what he is really doing.

I encourage you to seek out Gavin whenever you can because he is the real deal and a very nice guy to boot!

By anonymous in St. Louis, MO

I tried to make an appointment with Gavin the last time he was in town, but our schedules did not match, my schedule not his. He was willing to let me know when he would be back in town and was will to set something up this time. Thankfully our schedules matched this time and we were able to meet when he was in town time. The wait was worth it and I will be looking forward to seeing him when he is in town again. Gavin explained what he was going to be doing, as we started and would ask me during the massage how I was doing and to rate the pressure level and he would adjust accordingly. At the end of the massage, Gavin took time to talk with me about the experience, which is something that very few massage therapist do anymore. I look forward to his next trip to town and will definitely be making another appointment.

I would recommend him to anyone that wants a truly first class massage that will leave you calm and relaxed. Would definitely tell anyone that you won't be disappointed. His web site is thorough and accurate and as professional as his massage is

Gavin does an extraordinary job. I have been receiving massage for 25 years and his work is the best that I can remember. He is very knowledgeable and willing to share what he knows. He demonstrated about 9 techniques that I enjoyed and will incorporate in my work. I also learned a number of yoga stretches from him that I will be using for self help. His knowledge of anatomy is excellent and helpful I look forward to my next massage with Gavin.

By far the most completely therapeutic massage that I have ever received. Gavin has an extensive knowledge of muscle structure and physical anatomy that rivals any medical provider. Gavin has developed unique massage techniques that focus of the release of muscular tension and overall wellness. Completely professional, with a very friendly and relaxed manner. Would not hesitate to recommend.
