Reiki is a great reset☯️!!!
I don't know who needs to hear this...
Recently, I underwent a major dental procedure that left me feeling not myself,
out of sorts.. just off kilter...
Michael Disko is just one of the amazing Reiki Masters at Evolvehomewood. My session with him was an outstanding experience!!! I left feeling calmer, like a weight was lifted & I was able to get back on track. A needed breath of air & moving of energy!!!
If you feel disjointed, out of sorts, just not 100%..
I highly recommend making an appointment & experiencing the amazing healing benefits of Reiki❤💥🙌🏼💥❤!!!!!

I sustained back injury several years ago. I have been to several physical therapy sessions, several specialist, and have tried medications but nothing has given me the the relief from pain that I received following my first session from Michael "Magic Fingers" Disko (that's my nickname for him). But on a serious note I was experiencing chronic back and hip pain which made my daily activities sometimes unbearable. I went from not being able to sleep a full night for approximately 4 months to sleeping pain free. I will probably have this issue for the rest of my life but since being a client this is the best I have felt in the last 3 years. Thanks Evolve, you all have given me life again!!!

Hands down the very best massage I have EVER had!! Dalton was very skilled and knowledgable regarding chronic pain issues and customized the massage accordingly. He was professional, friendly, accommodating and easy to talk to, providing a calm, relaxing environment. When I left I had no pain anywhere..a feeling I haven’t experienced in over a decade! I can’t wait for my next appointment!

I’ve been dealing with pain for over 30 years from muscle strain and trigger points. Between med. and injections and physical therapy ,I finally found something and someone who can give me a healthy and long term relief. BRITTANY is the therapist for me. She knew exactly where the problem areas causing pain were and focused on those. Definitely the better choice .

I pulled a muscle in my back, lifting. I scheduled a deep tissue massage, with Michael. It was Amazing! Not only did he, relieve the pulled muscle; he relieved hip stiffness, I had for years. I was a little sore the next day. But, when I tell you the pain is gone, I mean it is gone. He also showed me stretches to do at home. The shop was warm and inviting. I can’t wait to schedule my next appointment. I think I will get my neck worked on. I recommend trying Evolve out. They will literally massage the stress away. I can’t sing their praises, enough!

Pain Management Specialists

Evolve Massage and Alternative Healing was born out of the idea that massage is essential for the reduction and management of many, if not all chronic pain conditions. Many of our clients have chronic pain that Traditional Western Medicine only knows how to treat with drugs and surgery. Many chronic pain conditions and even other chronic issues including anxiety and depression can have their roots in muscular tension and knots.

“We are passionate about helping you feel better. We are not only going to use our expertise to release tight, knotted muscles, but we will also council you in stretching and meditation techniques to take home with you so you can make marked improvements even between sessions.
Pain is NOT a given side effect of aging… often it is a choice. We can help you understand what that means and how to make choices to manage and eventually relieve your daily pain.” -Michael
