Stress: pressure, strain - a force that tends to distort a body or a factor that induces bodily or mental tension. Sound familiar? We all deal with stress in one form or another, but how many of us know how to unwind?
Relax: to make or become less firm, tense, or rigid or to seek rest or recreation.
If you're like me it can be very difficult to relax. We live in a society and time in history where we are pressured by so many things throughout our day and we stay so busy that we forget to take care of ourselves. The damage it does to our bodies as well as straining our emotions and mental well being can be long term and debilitating. So, what is the answer? Drugs? Alcohol? Have you noticed how many commercials there are about prescription drugs these days? We have become addicted to prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Guess what? Pills only mask the problem and alcohol in moderation may help us relax for the moment, but it too, can become addictive. What is an alternative answer to all this stress, drugs, and alcohol?
Massage!! I was 44 yrs old when I had my first full-body massage. Wow, why did I wait so long? And I ask you, "What are you waiting for?"
These are just some of the benefits of massage: Deep relaxation, Improved circulation of blood and the lymph system, Alleviation of many muscle pains, Relief from the negative affects of stress, and a reduction of anxiety.

I just had my first massage by Steve and was extremely impressed with his services. I work on my feet 46 to 50 hours a week and hold a lot of tension in my calves and feet. I have had many many massages in my life and this one is at the top of my list. The pressure was perfect and he was able to work the knots out of my calves which normally does not happen when I receive massages other places. Normally they work on my legs for a little while and while I do feel better immediately after they don't get the muscles completely worked out as Steve did. The proof was the next day when I was for the first time in awhile I didn't hurt or ache in my legs and feet. I also like a good deep tissue massage and he was able to apply the perfect amount of pressure. His place is very clean and he is a great guy, makes you feel at ease right off the bat so you can relax and just enjoy the massage. I'm getting ready to book my next visit and plan to see him at least every two weeks.
I found Steve by searching the internet looking for a real massage. I have gone to other massage theripist and they were good but not like steve. He met me at the door with a great smile and we went to the massage room very clean and relaxing. Steve ask questions and i travel alot so my lower back butt and legs get sore from setting in the car. Steve went right to work and it felt amazing. he used the right amount of oil so he glided up and down my body paying special attention to my lower back butt and legs! he worked out all the soreness all the way down! then i flipped over and he did the same thing! My massage was for an hour and when he was done the only dissapointing thing that is was not for a longer period! i could have laid there for at least another hour. i left feeling soo relaxed and refreshed! even the next day I still feel that "massage high" the feeling you get when the massage is really a good massage! I will be giving steve another call as soon as i can! Everyone needs to experience steves amazing touch! you wont be disappointed i promise! very professional and now he has a repeat customer! the only negative i have is his availability doesnt fit good with my schedule but he has another job and i work long hours so that is my problem not his! everyone needs to treat themselves to a massage and everyone needs to experience it with steve!! thanks again Steve
Steve displayed some of the best massage techniques I have witnessed. He is very personable, a great conversationalist, and has skills to match his wit. Several layers of stress were removed from my body and I felt quite invigorated afterwards. Thanks again!
My massage experience with Steve was exceptional. He pays particular attention to problematic areas and takes into account your medical history in order to give you the most beneficial massage for your body.
Has been a copule years since I had had a massage. Steve made me feel very at ease from the moment I arrived. His hands are awesome. I left feeling very relaxed. I will definitely be making another appointment.
Steve made sure the entire experience was comfortable...a clean and spacious setting, a variety of techniques, you can tell Steve knows what he's doing, and Ill be back again. I'm glad I found him here and recommend him highly! I wish my 90 minute massage was longer...
Just wanted to let you know what a great massage I had with you the other evening. As I told you on the phone, I hadn't had a workout under talented hands in quite awhile. Like everyone else, my muscles go from head to toe and you not only worked them all, you worked them extremely well. My sleep that night was \"tornado\" proof. If anyone reads this, he would do himself right by hiring you for as long as he could. I can't wait to get back to Tulsa for your hands!
I had my second massage with Steve last Saturday. Due to my work schedule, he was extremely accomodating in allowing me to come during an off time. I didn't think he could top my first session with him but he did. His technique is extremely soothing and he takes me to a totally different plane when I'm on the table. He is my guy for life!
