Hey, thank you for stopping by, today!
My name is Doug Turet and whether this is your first visit to my site or you and I have been working together for years, I really appreciate your decision to pay me a visit.
On March 5th, 2020, when it became obvious that the coronavirus pandemic had made it to the U. S. and was beginning its deadly eastward trek from Washington and California to New England, I made the difficult decision to formally close Massage Horizons, as a way of protecting both your health and mine, until such time as either a proven vaccine or an effective treatment method had been developed and become so widely available that I no longer had to worry about either contracting or spreading the dreaded disease.
Since then, as COVID-19's infectious process has become a bit better understood, our region's numbers have significantly decreased, and PPE (personal protection equipment, such as nitrile rubber gloves, N95 masks and face shields) has again become more readily available, I have begun to treat those of my existing clients who have remained responsibly quarantined and a very limited number of new clients at two locations.
On Wednesdays, from 10am to 8pm, I see clients in Treatment Room 2 at In Touch Well Being, LLC (next door to my old office, in Suite 5), and on Thursdays, from 2-8pm, I am honored to have joined the terrific staff at Lavender Wellness and Massage, LLC, in Belmont.
And while it's true that I will occasionally miss some of the decor and creature comforts of my pre-pandemic workspace, I have no real regrets over its passing because I know that I gave it everything I possibly had to give, and I got to help change an awful lot of lives and comfort levels in the process. Like the pebble dropped into a pool of water, I just have to take it on faith that there are tons of warm, positive "ripples" still reverberating out there, in ways and directions I may never get to see.
And for those of you who've come to appreciate the Painless Deep Tissue and Myofascial and Medical Massage work I've used to help you live more comfortably through the years, and those who know my reputation for delivering lasting results and would like to begin working with me, please feel free to reach out to me via this site's Contact form or call my office number, which I will keep 'live' and redirected to my cell number for as long as I possibly can. (Just please note that it CAN NOT receive text messages!)
Again, thank you. Seriously. I consider the chances I've had to help you to be among the greatest compliments I have ever received, and I hope to see and help you all again, soon. In the interim, please stay safe and healthy, take the time and deep breaths needed to be kind, caring and considerate to those around you, and try to remember that that man or woman who so vehemently disagrees with your political points of view may very well be someone worth taking ten minutes for and asking, "Hey, would you like to grab a cup o' coffee and compare notes on this?" It may seem unconscionable, but the only safe pathway forward for any of us begins with open-ended questions and respect. If nothing else, remember that they love their kids, too...
All and only my best, always,
Massage Horizons • "Simple Therapies for Complicated Lives"!
If you're uncomfortable or in pain, call me now, and find out how much I can help you!
So... what is pain, anyway?
Simply put, "pain" — whether muscular, fascial, bone, nerve, interpersonal, emotional or spiritual — is your system's way of letting you know that something is not operating the way it should, and that it needs your attention.
In some cases, like arthritis, tendinitis or bursitis, it can be from our bodies reacting to forms of inflammation so severe that they can affect the very bones, tendons and ligaments that serve as our body's structure.
In others, like fibromyalgia, lupus, sciatica or multiple sclerosis, the culprits can be specific impingements, entrapments or erosions of portions of the neural pathways that carry messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
Or, maybe you've known the pain of having your old habits and childhood programming trip you up time and time again in your relationships or at work, and have always felt "stuck" and unable to move past them? Well...
Science + Sensitivity + Intuition + Care = Much more than "just a massage".
Make no mistake about it: therapeutic touch — in almost any form — can be beneficial to your pain and inflammation levels. In study after study, it has been proven effective in relaxing and soothing the body and calming the mind, and massage sessions with me will offer that as well.
But that's just the beginning.
The work that I do combines my years of both pre- and post-graduate training and awareness as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Nationally Certified Medical Massage Practitioner, Certified Life Coach and Access Consciousness Bars® and Body Processes® Practitioner with those in Guided Imagery, MyoFascial Release, Massage Cupping, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, and Sports Massage, Nerve Mobilization, Active & Passive Isolated Stretching, Breath work, Reiki & other forms of Energy work, and the list is always growing...
But most importantly, my sessions with you are about YOU!
You can probably feel a whole lot better. I can probably help. Let's find out how much!
