Evan Bryan Massage
I provide excellent customer care, specially-tailored and professional massages, and a unique therapist/client relationship in which I seek to integrate work on the "whole person". This includes after-massage suggests in diet, nutrition, stretching and exercise. A massage is generally about a relationship and I hope for there to be deep comfort between myself and the people I am blessed to work with. I have four years of experience with mobile massage.
I consider my work to be my calling as it provides me the wonderful opportunity to connect with people in a personal way that helps to discover unconsidered reasons why specific types of massage may be needed!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We talk over the phone or in person to see if we're a good match, generally. It's important to see where both parties are at in terms of in-home massage services and I like people to have a sense of who I am before I visit them as a complete stranger. We discuss the needs, billing, and any other odds-and-ends that may be necessary to start working together.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 1,000 hours of training in my profession as well as 3,500 hands-on massage hours. My training ran from the basics of Swedish massage, to bit of energy work, Tui-na and Shiatsu. My focus in training was on myofascial release, neuromuscular facilitation, sports massage, active release, passive joint, and facilitated stretching. I'm educated in medical massage and am comfortable working on people who just want to relax to others who have serious medical conditions.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
My standard pricing is $120 per hour plus $40 per upgrade (such as hot stone massage or cupping). If you want to pay using a credit card, I charge a processesing fee. I accept cash, check, Venmo, Square, Zelle and Paypal. I've even traded depending on the offer.
How did you get started in this business?
I was disabled in the Marine Corps and received some therapeutic work that really blew me away! Then, in a fit of frustration at my old job, I found that there was a massage school just down the street and that I should make the switch! They accepted me right off the bat and I haven't looked back since I found I could give the same services provided to me in my pain for others in theirs!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've run the gamut from joint replacement, to NFL players, to general relaxation, Men and women, young and old, over and under weight. After thousands of hours of massage and hundreds of people, it's rare to come across anything outside of my experience.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
One of my customers had three joints replaced after a brutal car accident and raves every time she sees me about how thankful she is to enjoy both the massage therapy and friendship we have developed. I am so satisfied in her presence because of her gratitude! It always brings me joy to find people who are willing to trust me to work on them through whatever trauma they have experienced mentally, spiritually, and physically.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Don't give up! Keep looking! Find someone you can trust and challenge them to help you! Be humble and vulnerable. Trust that there are people out there who genuinely care for your well-being!
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Why should I get a massage? Why should I get YOUR massage? What makes you different and better than any other massage therapist? How do you think you can help me? Should I wear undergarments? What is your philosophy as a massage therapist and how do you communicate it before, during, and after a massage?
