Massage Therapy for Pampering or Problem-Solving:
PAMPERING relaxation for Celebrations, and Self-Care
PROBLEM-SOLVING for relief from Stress, Tension, Limited Mobility, Swelling, and Muscle Soreness or Pain.
I self-referred and was thrilled to be accepted in as a client for therapy on my long-term, chronic pain ankle. After just a few sessions I was able to travel to another country with my family and walk as much as I wanted."
Paul Doughtery - Tax Manager, Recology
- Recovering from a recent surgery, accident, or sports injury?
- Need to de-stress from the day-to-day problems and issues you face?
- Getting ready for an exciting (but stressful) big event like a baby or wedding?
- Do you find yourself forgetful of little things like where you put your keys or if you paid that bill?
(& you’ve been screened for dementia and come up clear.)
- Do you feel rushed and frazzled, trying to get ‘it’ all done?
- Is your skin breaking out, or are your fingernails fragile?
- Are you an athlete and want support pre, through, and post-training and events?
Stress and Persistent Pain not only effects our minds,
but also our over-all health.
Clients and patients are referred to us for our "serious massage therapy magic!"
Your mental and physical health is impacted by high levels of mental, emotional, and physical stress.
Our focus is to help you reduce and eliminate stress-associated illnesses and dis-ease, perform with more precision, train harder and recover faster.
When stress relief is needed for happy or sad events, we'll support you through them with more ease, grace, and brilliance!
We ONLY accept clients by referral or request,
and ONLY if we're confident and KNOW we can provide relief and results.
Please contact us to discuss your needs & apply to be a client.
If you are accepted as a client, we will design a single bespoke session or therapy plan to help you reach your precise goals. We accomplish delivering fast, efficient, and effective results through precise clinical protocols and our unique therapeutic approach.
Manual manipulation and massage therapy are excellent for de-stressing, reducing swelling, pain and stiffness, & for nipping 'things' before they escalate:
One of the exciting things that make us unique is to be sure you get the best fit for your needs; we have 3 'levels' of hand-picked massage & manual therapists we can choose from to be sure you're matched with the best-fit therapist for you.
Prior to booking your appointment, we offer a complimentary brief, personalized consultation over the phone (or in person) where we'll ask you a few qualifying questions.
This helps us decide what Level of Therapist and services or programs would be best for you based on your clinical goals and preferences.
We specialize in actually achieving clinical goals rather than just applying a temporary band-aid 'fix.'
Our goal is to address underlying causes rather than only treating symptoms.
It's a fact that some people's stress or tension will not be completely resolved or relieved in 1 single session, so we design a personalized therapy plan for clients.
Our clients prefer to participate in one of our precisely-designed programs to receive clearly defined results.
Clients who're looking for a single session or visiting from out of town may be accepted if they meet our client profile and if space is available.
What are your therapy needs?
Let us help you choose your precise 'Level' of the therapist and program best for you!

Level I - "Apprentice" Therapists:
(available on a limited basis)
Apprentice massage therapists are newer to the profession and are either finishing training school or are newly graduated.
Apprentice sessions focus on de-stressing and relaxation, and relief of muscular tension. (As part of the therapist's training, we ask you to take a few minutes after your massage to complete a quick written evaluation form.)
(Please note: Due to the fact Level I therapists are still perfecting their craft ~ We absolutely WILL NOT recommend these beginner therapists if your goal is more than the relaxation of tight muscles and reduction of stress. There is no billing for Level I services)
Start at $87 / 55 minutes ~ includes application of Diamond Hot Packs at no additional fee
(Shorter and longer sessions are available)
Level II (non-member) Rates:
Level II therapists have a competent level of skill and experience and offer a variety of fantastic relaxational & maintenance sessions.

What Type Of Therapy Do We Do?
We are often asked by a potential client, "Do therapists at Diamond provide ... Swedish, Lymphatic, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Reflexology... (Insert method)?"
Are You Looking For?
- Swedish Massage*
- Deep Tissue Massage*
- Sports Massage (Pre-Event, Post-Event, Recovery, and Maintenance (Soreness Relief)
- Neuromuscular Therapy
- Chair Massage
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Tui Na
- Trigger Point Therapy*
- Myofascial Release*
- Active Myofascial Therapy ~ The Diamond Method*...
Or anything else you've received or been told to ask for ...?
Request a free consult.
Instead of simply booking a session based on the name of the modality, the pressure of it, or the place your session is held (chair), together, we'll figure out what the most precise therapeutic plan for you is and schedule accordingly.
* Over the years, there have been changes to terminology and to our understanding of how our touch actually helps you. We used to think we could actually stretch the connective tissue (fascia) with our hands -- now we know we actually can't.
(& neither can you stretch tissue with the foam rollers!)
Names of modalities don't always point you in the right direction...
- As you can imagine, what is considered 'deep tissue' to some, might feel as light as a feather to others.
- We now know modality names such as Myofascial Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy is actually misleading. Over the years, our profession has a new, more comprehensive understanding of what exactly we're doing with our hands, and how we're helping clients achieve the therapeutic changes they're seeking.
- Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness follows the Bio Psycho Social model of therapeutic intervention. This means we look at you as a whole, not just muscles, ligaments, and bones. We know your skin is your biggest organ, so above all else, we touch your skin with the precise intent to affect the muscle tension relief, stress relief, and improved performance and function that you desire....
It may sound 'weird' that we don't fall back on the old-school thinking of just offering 'modalities,' and instead, we apply a comprehensive, bespoke approach.
- If you're accepted into our practice, we know you'll be pleasantly surprised with your experience and the clinical, measurable results!
Injured? Chronic Pain? Pre or Post Surgery? Migraines? Fibromyalgia?
These are all symptoms we can help you with.
When your condition or needs are focused on relieving or rehabbing a specific injury, post-surgery, or condition please contact us to discuss if you will be better served by seeing a Rehabilitation expert rather than a massage therapist.
Corporate or Event Massage Services
Quick Fix Treatment For Specific Areas of Soreness or Relaxational
When your time is limited, or you don't want to undress, seated 'chair' massage is for you. To celebrate at a company or send as a gift for a party, seated 'chair' massage is for you.
The session is done with you sitting in a specially designed chair which allows the therapist to reach your back, shoulders, and neck. Other areas of your body can also be worked depending on the length of session you reserve.
The client is clothed, so there's no wasted time, no greasy lotion, and clients can easily get back to their day.
(See our description of On-Site Chair or Table Massage for your Party or Corporate Event)
No Greasy Mess:
Therapists use lotion or cream, not oil ~ so you don’t feel like a greased pig when you’re finished.
If you prefer, your therapist can use no lotion at all, and either just work through the sheet, your loose-fitting clothes, or talc may be offered instead of lotion.
"More Pain = Better Results?"
We Believe It Should NEVER Hurt! Some therapists believe, "The More Pain the Better!" We don't believe this to be true -- nor effective!
Your therapist knows the correct way to get in deep and release spasms, aches, and knots without causing you MORE pain, by going too deep but, instead, knowing precisely how to coax your muscles into relaxing, by working with your brain's signals.
At Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness Center, your therapist understands there are times to apply very firm pressure.
We say, "It should always feel Helpful, Never Hurtful!" That means the therapist will apply enough pressure to do what needs to be done without causing you to tighten up and experience more pain!
Always be sure to communicate with your therapists since everybody is different. At Diamond, we developed a "Rate of Perceived Comfort Scale" scale. This is "RPC" scale is a 0 -10 scale, where a '0' is no pain and complete comfort, and a '10' is absolutely too uncomfortable.
The level for therapeutic deep tissue work (your "Good Hurt") should stay around 7-8 out of 10.
We are happy to explain and demonstrate how we provide a deep, therapeutic yet pain-free sensation with effective pressure to relieve tension while satisfying the need for 'deep tissue.'
Soothing "Diamond Hot Packs":
Studies have shown that moist heat applied to tight, achy muscles helps to soften the area and increase blood flow to the area. Incorporate 'Diamond Hot Packs' into your session, at no additional cost. Enhance your experience, provide more therapeutic benefits and allow your muscles and fascia (the connective tissue) to soften so your therapist can easily get into your tight tissue with less pain, and better results!
(Included at no cost)
Topical Analgesic Creams:
(Included at no cost)
Our Professional Hour:
Sessions booked for an hour or longer will end 5 minutes prior to allow you to get dressed leisurely.
(Rates shown reflect our 55 or 85 minute professional hour.)
Your Location or Ours:

Once your specific goals have been achieved, you are best served as a member of our outstanding Diamond Club! The Diamond Club is invitation-only for people who want to receive consistent fitness training, massage and manual therapy on an on-going basis to maintain their level of wellness, and stop issues in their tracks before they get worse.

Who else is confident enough to offer a 100% Guarantee?
We're a Precise Private Practice® and are NOT Open To The Public.
We only accept new clients via personal referral or by request. We start with a brief consultation (either over the phone or in person) to discover their goals and concerns. If, we believe we can deliver brilliant effective, efficent results in an elegant experience, they'll be accepted in as a new client.
If for any reason, we don't feel we're a stellar fit to work together, we'll gracefully refer them out to someone who might be a better match.
Our approach is to develop a long-term supportive relationship where we build our client's health and wellness plan (based on their precise goals, time schedule, and budget), Every client is treated uniquely and their plan is bespoke, whether it's a single session or a full year committment.
We guarantee the session will be as desired to meet each client's stated goals and needs. Our skilled, friendly team strived to deliver the most brilliant experience, but if for any reason during the session the client doesn't feel the session is meeting their needs, they can interrupt the session and discuss with the provider. If the session cannot be course-corrected, the provider will terminate the session, and there will be zero fee to the client.
