Testimonials


I have been privileged enough to say I have had many different massages in many different places in the country, but no therapist has compared to Calvin. His vast knowledge of massage therapies shows every time he works with me. He truly seems to have a deep internal understanding of not only his profession, but the human body as well. I am more impressed every time I see him. I recommend all my friends and family to him, and anyone else who spends too much money on massage therapists who know minimal amounts. Thanks so much Calvin!! ~ Astor


​​Having a massage with Calvin is a special event.  I have had massages all over the world and his rank among the best.  The beauty of having Calvin perform regular massages on you is that he learns to find all those spots that the body needs to have repaired.  The massages differ weekly depending upon what parts of the body need the most work.  Because he is continuously studying multiple techniques, he has many tools at hand and can incorporate them into your body treatment.  Since my back and neck are my tightest areas, it is relief to be able to breathe better when I leave.  he is man dedicated to his craft and it is apparent in the massage he delivers. ~ Dr. Fox


​​I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my treatment, especially Calvin who is the owner and lead therapist. Calvin was incredibly caring, intuitive and thoughtful throughout my entire personalized massage. He made sure that I was at ease and comfortable. I have some major back issues and I am very particular when it comes to therapists and different types of massage/treatment, but as Calvin specializes in integrating massage relaxation with deep muscle therapy, I was assured that I was in the best of hands and care. I would definitely recommend Calvin and Integrative Wellness to everyone! ~ Joanna Hernandez-Zylberman


​I have worked with many massage therapists over the years and Calvin brings a sensitivity to his practice unlike any other practitioner.  He really listens to what a client needs, wants and expects from a session and makes a concerted effort to give you exactly what you want and need using a variety of skills and modalities that he has acquired over the years.  It becomes evident almost from the first session with Calvin that he is very passionate about the work he does and is always coming from such a genuine place in terms of his care for his clients and for the integrity of the work he does ~ Kevin
