Evolve Homewood began as a small, family owned massage studio focused on deep tissue and pain management. As we grow, we are excited to offer different healing modalities for our clientele, from Reiki to Health Coaching to Facial services, with more on the way.
Our Boutique is full of beautiful crystals, unique jewelry, handmade candles, small batch soaps and bath products, local goods, supplements, books, and more.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer something truly unique to our little city, and are excited about nurturing the already growing community of Holistic Wellness.
So many of us have gotten lost in the chronic anxiety of our modern lifestyle. Holistic Wellness is about slowing down for a minute, paying attention to your body, breathing deeply and being mindful. Many chronic pain issues as well as a myriad of other physical and emotional difficulties can be eased by intentional self care. Massage is an integral part of that self care and one of the best places to start.
Whether your journey into caring for yourself brings you in for massage or leads you to seeking Reiki healing, joining Valerie’s Health Coaching program, caring for your skin with our Facial services, learning how to practice Reiki yourself, or bringing ritual, beauty, and healing energy into your home with the crystals, jewelry, candles, and other incredible products in our Boutique, Evolve Homewood has what you need to help you on your self-healing path.

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!
Chronic muscular pain is a real problem for a lot of us, and pills or surgery are usually not the right answer. People in chronic pain are often caught in an endless revolving door of “quick fixes”. Massage can often relieve muscular pain and in the process teach you about your body in a way that will give you the knowledge you need to change your lifestyle so that you can heal yourself and feel better longterm.
“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
