Richard in Belfast (Northern Ireland) + Dublin with ample notice , United Kingdom
Hi, I'm Richard
I've always had a strong interest in health and overall well-being. I enjoyed rugby, but now in my middle 40's, I enjoy less physically toiling activities like walking, Golf, Pilates the gym and swimming.
In 2008 I relocated to Sydney, Australia to study at the 'Australasian College of Natural Therapies' and graduated with a Diploma of Remedial Massage and Sport and the ITEC Level 4.
I returned to Belfast in 2010 to establish my practice and have built upon my expertise and experience in that time to enjoy a strong recurring client base.
I specialize in hands on deep tissue massage using oils. Clients are required to provide direct access to their skin and are always draped during the duration of the massage.
I have over 12 years experience within the industry. I am reliable, self motivated and hard working.

Also.. The person that came out to our Chicago show (Ali) was amazing, and because of her i decided to look into getting more book for the tour.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
