“Rich gives an incredible massage that hits all of the right spots. He is the guy to go to when you need to really work out the kinks and tension of daily life. The hot stone therapy was an extra bonus that found the deepest knots and loosened them up. Rich is also a nice guy who makes you feel comfortable while also respecting your privacy. Give him a call!”

“Excellent therapy! The Hot Stones massage is very relaxing and he was able to assess all my pain and work on all of the areas that are affecting it. He is very professional, very caring and does an amazing job. I have had a lot of massage therapists and truly believe Rich has something more to offer in advanced pain relief techniques. He also gave me tips on how to stretch at home.”

"I'm a professional gay male from Memphis. I work out 4 times a week and came in for stressed out muscle, feeling tired and achy. I went to EMVmassage and felt very welcomed and relaxed with the environment and with John. John used hot stones on me and his techniques with the hot stones were a lot different and much better then what I have had before from other therapists. I visit Chicago for work once a month and every month I will be returning to see John, that's for sure.
