Look what clients are saying about Donald Robison of Thousand Oaks Therapeutic Massage...

Temple Massage

Fred B, Camarillo, California
I have been to a number of massage therapists in the past 15 years, locally in the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village areas, as well as the Fernando Valley, all of which were disappointing experiences. I like deep tissue massages, and the massage therapists that I have been to either don't like their occupation or don't that the capabilities to do what they claim they do. I have a drawer of unused gift certificates to massage therapists that will never see the light of day.

I was recently referred to Don from by healthcare provider. I had a retracted hamstring that was making it impossible to get around without a walker, and I am a relatively young man. My physician prescribed physical therapy and leg massage. After several rounds with the physical therapist, which was essentially useless, I went for my first evening massage with Don. When I woke up the following morning, the walker was no longer necessary. I continue to get weekly massages, and his body work has made me less tense, and incredibly more flexible.

Don has the unique ability to not only hear you, but to listen to your body through touch. He had discovered multiple knots in my muscles, that somehow "evaded"previous massage therapists. His use of ultrasound, when necessary, made working out the knots a nearly pain-free experience. He has also discovered that I have a rib that is dislocated (who knew?), and if asked, will walk you through what he is doing, and why. I have total trust in his abilities, and would highly recommend him if you have been disappointed by others, or even a a first-timer. Your body will feel nurtured at the end of a session, and you will notice the difference after a session or two. You will not be disappointed.

Stephanie M. from Newbury Park, California
I highly recommend if you have anything ailing your body (body pain) that you go see him. After one massage I felt 80% better. Thank you sooooo much for helping me move again.

Steven K. from Thousand Oaks, California
Being on a masters level competitive cycling team I very much appreciated Don's leg massage. I would have to say it is the best one I have received to date. His knowledge is extensive and you can tell he loves what he does. I will be back!.

Marylee M. from Thousand Oaks, California
Awesome job Don! I'm not even sore today- you really put your heart and soul into the treatment. Amazingly intuitive!!!!!! Give this therapist a try!!!!!! Well worth the very reasonable price!

Linda R. from Camarillo, California
For a MOST RELAXING massage and to get rid of neck and shoulder pain....there is no better place to go!!

Benu from Thousand Oaks, California
Donald is the best...wonderful combination of effective Asian and Hawaiian techniques that you will never find from anyone else in this neck of the woods! [He] does not do a 'general' body massage butfocuses on your really problematic areas....the heated bed and towels are a great plus as well.

Joyce C. from Thousand Oaks, California
For anyone looking for an Excellent Message Therapist you have found him. Don has created a very professional yet relaxing and enjoyable environment. He has helped me immensely dealing with fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, neck and back problems. I highly recommend Thousand Oaks Therapeutic Massage.

C.B.B. from Thousand Oaks, California
About 4 years ago I had a hip replacement. During this time period I had difficulty walking, with constant pain on my right side. I had all kinds of x-rays and MRI's. The medical doctors could not isolate the problem. A physical trainer recommended I try a massage. Using the internet, I found a masseuse near my home. I tried Donald Robison. On my first visit, Robison found knots in my buttock muscles, and I had almost instant relief. After a few more appointments, I found complete relief and can now walk without pain. Sometimes you have to be lucky and not only smart.

M.B. from Malibu, California:
I could talk about Don and his wonderful work at least an hour listing all the help he gave me. When I went to him first I hardly could walk. Now I can run. I had a shoulder accident which healed in record time, thanks to Don's knowledgeable and capable work of massage. Before I met him, I had massages by 3-4 people, and it did not work for me. I get lots of compliments on how good I look. I am sure that at least half of those compliments belong to Don. By the way, I am only 87 years old!

Kathy J. from Thousand Oaks, California:
I had my first massage with Don yesterday and couldn't be happier with the experience. He did an amazing job of listening to the issues that I am experiencing, pinpointing the source, and using massage techniques alleviate the tension. Aside from the wonderful massage, I found both he and Penny to be a joy to talk with and felt instantly comfortable in their home. I highly recommend Don whether your needs are therapeutic or simply relaxation. I look forward to my next visit.

Pam K. from Thousand Oaks, California:
I've been a customer of Don's from day one. He has worked out my back and shoulder pain. Most recently I have had trouble with my hips. It would cause me great pain to stand up after sitting awhile or to walk the mall. Now I can do these with ease. He is a very powerful masseuse and is very knowledgeable about the massage needed to relieve painful areas.

Joyce C. from Simi Valley, California
I want to offer my highest recommendation and compliments to Don Robison of Thousand Oaks Therapeutic Massage. About 6 months ago my good friend highly recommended Don to me because I was in extreme pain and could not move my neck. After spending a great deal of time and money on doctors and chiropractors without relief, I was desperate. I called Don and made an appointment. It was one of the best things I've done for myself in a long time. I received relief immediately. I not only suffer from neck and shoulder issues, but I also have fibromyalgia. Even my medical doctor agreed that it is good for me to receive regular messages

Don is extremely knowledgeable of the human anatomy and knows how the muscles and bones all work together. This knowledge enables him to offer the best help for your specific need. He also offers advice on different stretches and other at-home therapy you can do for yourself to encourage optimum health and well being.

Don is a very compassionate, caring, and genuine person, as well as professional. I truly believe he cares for each client and does his best to accommodate their individual needs.

I always look forward to my weekly massage. You will too!

Shelley Z. from California:
I have had many massages over the past 20 years and was finally relieved to find a therapist who has helped me with my pain. I was diagnosed by four doctors with fibromyalgia and given different types of therapies. Nothing seemed to work. I was always in pain and agony. Last February I had a hip replacement, and the pain in the other hip was unbearable. Looking for a therapist who could help me with the pain, I went to Don Robison.  I was fortunate to find a therapist who really cared about helping me. His professional manner and knowledge makes me look forward to my bi-weekly massages.

Margarita from Thousand Oaks, California:
In the last sixteen years I have experienced numerous massages, and I can truly say I recognize a quality massage. I have been receiving massages once a month from Don Robison for approximately two years. He is not only highly skilled, but has an in-depth understanding of the human body and how it works. I not only experience relaxation, but also feel Don's massages are therapeutic. I feel very fortunate to have found an excellent massage therapist.

Gregg F. from Malibu, California:
I wanted to thank you again and to let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you. Our session today was just what I needed, :-)....can't wait to see you again!

Noelle, Canada:
Don is a therapist with the utmost professionalism. I was a little hesitant about going to a male therapist, but my sister was raving so much about him, I had to try him. Not only did I have the best massage I've ever had, I had two in one week! I own a spa in Canada and have had plenty of experience with therapists. I told Don that if he lived up here, I would hire him in a second! I have a lot of trouble with my upper back and am always asking therapists to work on my neck and traps. I always seem to leave a massage feeling the need to stretch.  With Don, he attacked the area with gusto, explaining to me why I was having these problems and even offering ways for me to do work at home to help with my problem. Never did I feel uncomfortable or exposed. The warm oils and the ambiance of the room made for a lovely experience and whenever I am back in town, I will be making an appointment (or two!)

Winnie from Thousand Oaks, California:
Thanks, Don, for a great massage!

Amy from San Diego, California:
Thank you, oh-so-much, for my massage. It was fabulous!! I promise not to make it so long between visits.

Marcy from Moorpark, California:
Let's face it, I lead an active lifestyle. I teach at least three group exercise classes a week on top of my own strength-training workouts. I mountain bike, rollerblade, and walk my dog regularly, too.

Regular massage sessions rid my body of lactic acid and other toxins, leading to a faster recovery period and allowing me to remain injury-free. Massage has also helped reduce the amount of scar tissue that has built up after reconstructive hip surgery. Not only does the affected leg look better, but it functions better.

Donald has taken great care to provide his clients with a relaxing atmosphere. His studio is decorated with handmade Hawaiian and Balinese souvenirs, and a variety of meditative music rotates in the background.

I have always felt comfortable and safe at Thousand Oaks Massage; so comfortable, in fact, that I am able to leave the day's stress at his doorstep and thoroughly enjoy the moment.

Jennifer from Thousand Oaks, California:
I am new to Thousand Oaks Therapeutic Massage and I have had 6 massages so far.  I am very impressed with the quality of massage that I get from Don. The massage room is very comfortable and relaxing. Don is very professional and "in tune" with patient needs. Depending on how I feel, he varies his techniques from Swedish to deep tissue to stone therapy. All massages are 90 minutes, which gives me time to settle down, relax, and then enjoy my session.

Elaine from Sebastopol, California:
From our very first therapy session together I knew I was going to be 'in good hands' with you, and that feeling has been borne out over several years of bi-weekly massages. What I didn't know at the start was the education I would be gaining about the body & its muscular & skeletal structure. That has always been an added bonus for your 90 minute massages.

You are very 'in tune' with what may be causing me particular pain or tightness and can always find those areas and points to massage or apply pressure even before I describe the problem spots to you. I have received many helpful stretches and stress reducing techniques during the course of our sessions, which I've found extremely beneficial. You are quick in offering to search for exercises and sources of pain in your many books and manuals before we conclude a session, and I've always appreciated that.

Don, Sebastopol from California:
I have had several massages from you in the past 2 1/2 years. These are really special to me form a number of reasons:

Your hands are large and strong so you can do deep work as needed, but you are also gentle when needed, so as not to make the experience needlessly painful. Some massage therapists seem to enjoy making it painful when it doesn't seem necessary.

Your massage room is so very comfortable with just the right temperature as well as the delightful choice of music that induces meditation and quietness. However, talking with you is so tempting because of your openness and wonderful disarming humor.

I have brought a number of questions about physiological problems, such as a painful foot problem resulting from distance running. You seem to have a broad range of familiarity with the body that goes well beyond massage technique. I have found this to be very helpful.

Michele P. from California:
Wow! A day later, I'm still feeling the positive effects of Donald's massage. It was one of the best body therapy sessions I have had. I have been a massage therapist since 1995, and I have some awesome body workers teach and work on me. Donald is one of the best. His touch, his energy and his knowledge is top notch and I am looking forward to having him work out the kinks or just relax me, once again. Thank you, Don, for being a gift to the profession and for keeping it classy, professional and healing!
