"I manage the USA Synchronized Swimming National Team, currently training in Riverside, CA. Nelson has been the massage therapist for this elite group of athletes, girls aged 13-17. They rave about his massages. Nelson is great to work with and we truly appreciate all he's done for our group. Thanks!"

"At first I was a bit apprehensive to getting a massage, but the whole experience was very nice. The massage itself was quite relaxing and its benefits carried on to the next day for swim practice. He really knows about where to work at, even points that I didn't know were tight and sore. Thank you!!"
Shiree L - member Junior National USA Synchronized Swimming Team, Cirritos CA.
"I am a member of the junior synchronized swimming national team and have been getting massages by Nelson. He understands how to relieve stress in athletes and I have found the massages very helpful. I can't thank Nelson enough."
Clair B, Los Gatos CA.
"My daughter is training with the national synchronized swim team in Riverside California and Nelson has been taking great care of the team and helping them recover from all the physical training."
Tom B, Moraga CA.
"Thank you for taking the time to feel for the places I'm having issues with. Your personal yet totaly professional approach gave me a sense of security from the start. I knew I was in good hands, literally. The session was relaxing, informative (you taught me some things about my own body) and felt great! I do believe I may need 90 minutes instead of the weekly 60.
You are the best massage therapist in the Inland Empire!"
Annette Patterson, LES, Redlands CA.
Nelson became my massage therapist almost a year ago and is an integral part of my wellness plan. Although extremely active all my life I did inherit a genetic auto -immune disease which requires a very healthy lifestyle. My plan includes walking, yoga, weight training, meditation and massage. As soon as I walk into Nelson's therapy room I feel my spirit rise! He is a holistic massage therapist in my eyes; incorporating massage, stretching, atmospheric music and essential oils. He learns his clients history and creates a personal program to benefit their health needs. He respects; and appreciates his clients and I for one leave feeling all is right with the world; eager to be active and looking forward to my next session! I would highly recommend Nelson to anyone needing a truly personalized healing experience!
I initially went to Nelson due to chronic back and neck pain related to a tumor I had in my leg and the surgery that left me with an abnormal gait. I appreciate that Nelson works with me to find the right technique and pressure to meet my needs while still making my massage a relaxing experience. My bi monthly massages have become a significant part of my ongoing wellness plan.
Nelson has super hands making me feel relaxed with massage he gives me. He makes the tension and knots I carry disappear in just an hour. I highly recommend it to anyone and he is very flexible with your schedule.
Our firm used Nelson Brown as our Massage Therapist for the last three years (2013-2016) during our "busy season." Nelson is a wonder massage therapist. I have had so many compliments about Nelson from our staff. Nelson knows how to work out the stressed areas of our Professional Staff's neck, back, and shoulders. We have been very pleased with Nelson and we look forward to using Nelson's expertise for our next "busy season." Thanks for a wonderful Job Nelson.

Whether I need a relaxing, calming massage because of a stressful week at work or a deep tissue, trigger point therapy massage because of a strenuous series of workouts training for marathon runs and obstacle course races, Nelson is the best at providing the right therapy I need. He is so knowledgeable in massage therapy. He is always able to pinpoint the source of my tension and tightness, aches and pains, and massage them away. He's the best!
