"I have been acquainted with Ricardo Lopes for over 8 years.  He is a person of upstanding character and highly respected.  In addition to this he is an excellent Massage Therapist. I have utilized the services of several massage therapists in the past number of years. Ricardo excels them all — He conducts himself at all times in a professional manner  He is prompt and prepared, courteous, confidential and discreet. — He is fair in his pricing and he coordinates with insurance companies that cover massage therapy. His massages are thorough and very effective. When suffering from a whiplash which had nearly immobilized me with compounding spasms, Ricardo systematically worked at the source of the problem and restored my muscle health. I would heartily recommend Ricardo Lopes as a Licensed Massage Therapist. My only wish is that he was located nearer to where I live now."

"Both my husband and I received a massage by Ricardo before our wedding. I received it the night before, and my husband received a few hours before the ceremony. It helped us both relax and enjoy the festivities even more. It was WONDERFUL!  That was 12 years ago. Since then, we have been loyal Ricardo followers. Not only does he do Swedish massages to help us relax, but he has fixed sore and cramped muscles numerous times. His hands pull off magic and we highly recommend them!"

"Ricardo is the best and most dedicated massage therapist I have ever had work on me. He is very knowledgeable, which makes me feel at ease and confident. He understands his clients, and is passionate about his work. Ricardo treats the body as a whole, and emphasizes any area that needs special attention based on client feed back. As a golfer and amateur athlete, his expert use of customized stretching techniques and Myofascial Release brings back muscle function. Combine that with lactic acid and other exercise byproducts being cleared from your muscles and lymphatic system, Ricardo's Therapeutic and Sports Massage are a must have for all the health-conscious workaholics out there!"

"I’ve known Ricardo for over 10 years and I can say he is always friendly and professional; he gives special attention to your needs, and absolutely exceeds expectations every time. He knows amazing techniques and uses just the right amount of pressure for each different style of massage. I’ve never had better massages than those I get from Ricardo. After each session I feel all my stress, aches and stiffness have been lifted away. He is the only Massage Therapist that left me wanting another massage again and again."

"I used to have a severe neck pain which lingered with me for quite some time. I had gone to a few Chiropractors, but unfortunately, none of them had solved my problem. Then I heard about Ricardo and his so called 'talented hands' and right away I decided to contact him, even though I was a little skeptical at first. However, in the beginning of my first massage session with Ricardo, we discussed my condition and he actually gave me knowledgeable advice on how to reduce the stress on my ached neck muscles, as well as how to prevent any further strain that might provoke them to worsen. During my sessions with him, my neck pain began to lessen and before I realized what had happened, my neck pain was totally gone. I highly recommend Ricardo's skills to anyone who may be struggling the same way I was."

"Ever since I was little I have always had a desire to help others, and one of the things that would make me happy was massaging my friends and family when they were a bit stressed. I've never taken any classes before but was told that I did a pretty good job. About 2-3 years ago I met Ricardo. When I found out that he was a Massage Therapist I got really happy and wanted to learn. But after having my very first Therapeutic Massage in his care, all I can say is that it would take probably a good long while for me to be as good as him! He is sensational and uses several techniques to make your massage session as relaxing and pleasurable as possible. I have never regretted for a single moment having my first Massage Therapy session with him, and you won't either!"

"For as long as I can remember, I have suffered with upper back pain to the point where I couldn't even lift my arm up without feeling a shooting pain go through my shoulders. I felt like I was carrying a ton of bricks every time I had to lift something even if it was light. One day, while talking to a friend of mine, she told me about Ricardo, and how everyone was complimenting on his work. I didn't "believe" her at first, thinking she might be exaggerating, so I decided to try it out just to satisfy my doubts. To my dismay, I was terribly wrong! In my first consultation, Ricardo explained exactly what was going on and what was causing my pain. He showed me some exercises that I could try at home which would help relieve the pain and make me more flexible. I continued with Massage Therapy and with time, my movements became looser and I can now finally touch my back without any tension or pain whatsoever. The only negative thing I have to say about Ricardo is that he shouldn't have moved back to Florida! I really do miss him and his skilled hands!"
