Massage for Relaxation and Tension Relief for maintenance of a pain & injury-free body:
- Do you need to de-stress from the day-to-day problems and issues you face?
- Are you 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 did you pay that bill? (& you’ve been screened for dementia and come up clear!)
- Do you always feel rushed and frazzled, trying to get ‘it’ all done?
- Is your skin breaking out, or your fingernails breaking?
- Are you an athlete and want support though your training and events?
Stress not only effects our minds, but also our physical health.
Clients and patients come to us or 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 stresses.
Our focus is to help you reduce and eliminate stress-associated illnesses and dis-ease, train harder and recover faster, and when stress relief is needed for happy events, we’ll get you through them with more ease , grace and brilliance!
We ONLY accept clients we KNOW we can help by referral or request.
Please contact us to discuss your needs & apply to be a client.
If you are accepted as a client, we will design a therapy plan to help you reach your precise goals, and we do that with you through precise clinical protocols and modalities!
Manual & massage are excellent for de-stressing & nipping ‘things’ before they escalate:
One of the exciting things that make us unique, is we have 3 ‘levels’ of hand-picked massage & manual therapists to choose from, to be sure you get the best fit for your needs.
Prior to booking your appointment, we offer a complimentary brief, personalized consultation over the phone (or in person) to help you decide what Level of Therapist and which of our services or programs would be best for you, based on your clinical goals and preferences.
We specialize in helping you actually achieve your clinical goals rather than just have you lie on the heated therapy table and have us pat you with oil!
Because you and we know that most people’s stress will not be completely resolved or relieved in 1 single session, we can create a personalized therapy plan for you.
You may be like most of our other clients who prefer to participate in one of our precisely-designed programs so you can actually receive your clearly defined results, or if you’re visiting from out of town, or simply looking for a single-session to relax — that’s ok, too. ( if appointment space is available)
What are your therapy needs?
Let us help you choose your precise ‘Level’ of the therapist and program best for you!

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)?”
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 light as a feather to others.
- Modality names such as Myofascial Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy, we now know to actually be 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 you feel the therapeutic changes you’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’, but if you’re accepted into our practice, we know you’ll be pleasantly surprised with your results!

Instead of simply booking a session based on a name of the modality, or 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 you 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 with the foam rollers!)
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.
You stay clothed so no wasted time, no greasy lotion, and you can easily get back to your 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!
At Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness Center, your therapist understands there are times to apply very firm pressure.
We say, “It should be a Good Hurt”, that means applying 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 every body 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 a 7-8 out of 10.
We are happy to explain and demonstrate how we provide a deep, yet pain-free effective pressure to relieve your tension and satisfy your 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)
