Jeff is available for one-on-one sessions by appointment at your location or at Simple Bliss Spa in downtown Raleigh. He also offers workshops that can be tailored for corporate groups, fitness facilities and other organizations.
“I wanted to pass along what a great job Jeff did with my 90 minute massage. I was so tense and just worn to frazzle when I arrived. My Swedish massage was just what the doctor ordered! I felt like a new person when left. Relaxed and all the pain was gone from my neck and back. I can’t wait to return. This definitely made me realize how important it is not to neglect what your body is telling you.”
