I had my first massage from Neal on Wednesday.
It was an A++++ experience. His initial greeting, voice, and attention created
an instant atmosphere of calmness and peace. Neal takes time to listen to his
clients and is interested in their physical and spiritual conditions. He also
takes time to tell clients about his background before the massage begins.
There is no rush to begin the massage. The initial "get to know each
other" is important and focused. Neal uses his own combination of massage techniques
(he calls Meraki) to meet his client's needs. You may soak in the hot tub before
beginning the massage if you desire. (This is so calming and relaxing.) The
massage begins with essential oils, followed by warm coconut oil. His strokes
are long and smooth, sometimes light, sometimes strong; and his focus never
leaves his client. I am now totally spoiled and eagerly look forward to my next
massage with Neal in two weeks. He is a holistic healer.

Where to begin….Neal was referred to me by
one of his clients. I had been at a point of “rock bottom” in my life and
figured either give Neal a chance or go see a Physician who would probably just
pump me with medications, which is not what I needed. Although I did not quite
understand the healing works he provided I was intrigued by the process of
learning: I guess one could say I have an inquisitive mind. I met with Neal
with intentions of receiving a “great” massage, but what I learned proved to be
much more. The professionalism he emitted through detailed explanation was
enough to entice my excitement to know more; his training, skills and
experience awoke a yearning for new energy, balance and well-being I never knew
existed within me; and his delivery of services, guidance and understanding
proved to be impeccable. I continue to be guided by Neal on a weekly basis and
truly feel complete change in my life. I am a work in progress and with every
session I become more balanced, completely connected to my life as it is now,
and empowered to be exactly who I was created to be. For this, I am truly
grateful. The first day I laughed (hysterically) when Neal told me I was a
Goddess. Today, with his guidance, I am becoming even more.

Grateful for my session with Neal today as once again I received not only the best massage I've ever had (it no longer makes sense to pay twice the amount at a spa because it doesn't come close to comparing) but his therapy also removed the burden and stress I walked in with and never should have been carrying. I need the drive home to come back to reality! #walkingonacloud #nothinglikepeace

I’ve been meaning to write this post for weeks! Many might not think of massage as a modality for weight maintenance, but I thought I’d give a shout out for one of the “lesser” thought-of benefits of regular bodywork. I’m a pretty active and conscientious preventative health person, so I work out regularly, try to eat healthy (most of the time), and track my weight every morning. It never fails... the next morning post-treatment (and for several days following) my weight is always down 1-4 pounds. It tracks back up slightly over the week to my “plateau/regular” weight, usually in time for my next week’s massage, but since my body and I are happy with my current weight (which will always fluctuate some), this pattern proves something very important to me... Regular massage can be an integral part of one’s weight maintenance!! I completely believe, that through the circulatory process, the lymphatic drainage, the detoxification process and the soft tissue manipulation which creates an optimal environment for cell oxygenation, etc. (and combined with energy flow through chakra balance (if you’re taking advantage of combined physical/energetic therapy, which I highly recommend), that Neal’s services definitely take you “beyond relaxation” and assist with one’s overall health... body mind & spirit! Thank you, Neal for being part of my regular self-care and “maintenance”! (Since none of us are getting younger, we can definitely get BETTER at Bodywork by Neal!)

moving here from Sedona, AZ, I found Neal as one of the very few therapists in
the area who knew Manual Lymphatic Drainage and had some experience with it.
Neal was interested in my lymph disease and researched it further so he could
help me with the painful symptoms. In the year of working with him, he also
recommended other modalities at different times to help keep my lymph flowing
and my spirits up. His work space is calming and perfect; his innate
intuition helps find the issues as they occur and he is much more than a
masseuse with his God-given talents.

The experience was emptiness of mind & full of pleasure. I left with high emotions & deep thoughts. Knowingness formed from silence. This healer's touch moves more than just the flesh. Continued self-care is a support system for your dreams, physically present, mental escape, and grounded. As the veil is fastened, the loss of light plays across your eyes and creates a void full of possibility when you just let go...
Karen Avery - October 2, 2017
I just had a Conscious Touch Session with Neal! I usually prefer Prism or Meraki as they are soooo relaxing. Neal is intuitive as to what modality I need most and always asks my input as to what I think I need! He is truly a masterful healer! You wont find his type of services anywhere else! And you wont be disappointed.
Ellen D'Auria - September 16, 2017
I just want to thank you for caring so much about my well being. Whether
I have specific problems or just need some relaxation, your massage always
makes me feel better. Between your knowledge and your special touch you
make my visit a totally wonderful experience. Thank you, Ellen

I wanted to take a moment to share how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING Neal's spiritual awakening service is. Now, this is not your I am in need of relaxation or could really use a massage or balancing experience... It is an I am ready to see my life in a whole new light and find unknown power type of experience!! I have been open to / working with energy work for almost 10 years. Not consistently or with too much intensity, however, I was at a place where I have been ready for a big change, not sure what path to take, overwhelmed with stress and decisions. Neal, being as intuitive as he is, suggested I try the spiritual awakening service with my one-hour appointment. Knowing he usually knows what my energy and my current state could best benefit from when I show up I said: "Sounds great!" HOLY WOW! Throughout the service, I was able to see what is coming next for me, awaken and intensify my energetic spirit and as cheesy as it sounds, become spiritually awakened. I could feel my energy flowing with power and intention throughout every part of my body. At moments it seemed as though my energy was going to burst out of my skin. All my senses were heightened and as I previously said, I felt an awakening that left me feeling like I was experiencing life for the first time! If you are feeling at a crossroad or like you could use some new life brought into your world... you absolutely must try Neal's spiritual awakening!

Another awesome treatment day today! I highly recommend a body scrub after whatever favorite bodywork you receive at Bodywork By Neal! Thank you Neal, as always, for being such an important part of my self-care routine! Our bodies are our temples... the only place to live, and the home for our souls! Blessed to have the care of a holistic healer that helps my body/mind/spirit rebalance throughout this busy life!

WOW! what an enlightening session this morning. I have been
going to Neal regularly since December and TODAY'S session was like nothing
I've ever experienced. I went in looking for spiritual enlightenment and energy
work... And boy did I get it. At the end of the session, I felt like the top of
my head was removed and there was this warm light pouring into me, through me,
and out my toes! Neal described it as my crown chakra. I I'm not familiar with
the chakras but I will definitely be looking into what that means :-) super
grateful to have found Neal Pope!
Michelle Staley - August 18,2017
I haven't seen this state of being in a
LONG time. Completely relaxed in a state of good energy. Thank You Neal Pope for
helping me begin my journey to peace! My husband will thank you when he returns
to find me in a better state of mind!

Let me start off by saying that I've been having massages for 16 years now and have had my share of massage therapists in Tucson, AZ and in Tampa, FL. I recently moved to Spring Hill, FL and was looking for a new massage therapist and came across Neal Pope. He had A LOT of great reviews so I figured I'd give him a try. From the initial phone call to the massage I had today has been nothing like I've experienced before. His energy is amazing and I think his hands are magic . I'm already feeling the best I've felt in quite sometime. I can only imagine how good I'm going to feel going to see him on a regular basis.
Thank you for sharing your energy and healing powers Neal! ~Namaste~
Vicki Piccorilly - July 6, 2017
I'm so grateful for this heavenly piece of therapy that has kept me in a posture ready to receive all that God has had for me! Nothing like balance, harmony, peace, love and joy to keep you focused and centered. Thank you, Neal Pope.
Amber Trautman - March 14, 2016
Based on recommendations I saw Neal today for an over due massage. The space is beautiful and peaceful, very clean and organized. Neal is an exceptional professional whom catered to my high expectations. Looking forward to my next massage in the very near future. Thank you!
Aja Moore - February 8, 2016
It's always a great experience seeing Neal and feeling what the master has in store! This session a new technique was incorporated, hot stones! Oooh my what an experience, the heat from the rocks and placement gave instant relaxation! I have had hot stones before but not like this. Which doesn't surprise me being that Neal is a one of kind bodyworker. Having the stones placed in key trigger points really helped me fall into deep relaxation sooner! The essential oils in the room are a great addition, the smell of calm and peaceful relaxation!
The signature floating was even brought on almost immediately... Away into the flute music I drifted! Massages from Neal are always a complete mind and body experience for me. They leave me in a relaxing fog, and feeling like I am walking in clouds ☁! Neal has hands 🙌 that just guide the pain away! Then being able to soak in a jacuzzi, is just icing on the cake! Not just any hot tub but a saltwater one, skin becomes incredibly soft and silky 😌!
I am so thankful that Neal has taken the time to not only study massage therapy but to continue to learn and integrate new things. The possibilities are truly endless with Neal the master bodyworker! He allows me to choose everything, if I have trouble areas or just need to relax, the techniques, even how I want to be on the table.
I hope everyone gets to experience what I do! Until next time. Namaste
Carol Fernandes - January 12, 2016
Wow!! Feeling you need a massage for all those aches and
pains? Then don't forget about Bodywork by Neal.
Went in today was in pain, left there not in pain that
should tell you everything. Neal you are the best and anyone who wants to have
a great experience then Neal is your guy.
Miranda Cutrole - October 7, 2015
I am grateful to have experienced such incredible results
from my sessions with Neal! Upon meeting him for the first time.. I could sense
his caring and relaxing nature. His presence alone brought my mind at ease. The
moment he knew I was in pain he didn't hesitate to get me in and help to
relieve my discomfort. That's how you know he truly cares about your
well-being. It's his passion to do whatever he can to make you feel better :)
His understanding of the anatomy of the body, and his
ability to do exactly what is needed, is astounding. Once I was on his table, I
knew I was in trusted hands, as he made it a point to be sure I was completely
comfortable. My primary concern was the pain in my left shoulder. This has been
an ongoing issue, on and off, between numbness, tingling, and a horrible aching
pain I've dealt with for a couple of years with next to no relief! Then when it
came time to finally get treated and I began my weekly massages with Neal.. I
wonder why I didn't start sooner!! Right away he knew that shoulder wasn't my
only concern, but he did focus a lot of his attention on the area. His hands
know exactly where they need to go and what to do to ease any discomfort you
may have. By the end of our session, my body had never felt so relaxed. I felt
lighter, as if I were floating... the heaviness our tension is capable of is
very detrimental to the body.. but I could feel that weight finally lifting!
The pain these muscles have been causing me practically melted away.. it was
such an amazing feeling... I found someone who is able to give me real
I wouldn't think twice to schedule again with
Neal, and you shouldn't either! He truly is remarkable at what he does, and he
is an extremely talented massage therapist. You will have to discover it for
yourself. He is a blessing to us all...
Amber Rose Plisco - September 3, 2015
Two days ago I got my first massage in over a year.....I had never been to Neal before ....we all know as a woman going to a man for a massage we tend to be a little Leary .... I can honestly say that he is a total professional....the room is set up to total serenity and it is very easy to relax....he has amazing hands and I felt 100 % better....I have never been one to keep up with things but since he has such awesome specials I will be doing this regularly .... I was getting tingling in my fingers while cutting hair and now that is gone and my left shoulder was out and I couldn't even put it behind me but now that's better too and all within one massage....I can't wait for my next one....if you have been thinking about getting a massage whether it's for relaxation or pain relief...you should schedule now!!!! Don't wait....I wish I would have done this week's ago...if there is someone you would like to buy a gift for....this is that gift....there is no better gift then that if relaxation...makes us all much nicer people....schedule now before I take all his appointments :-)

Post massage update:
I am feeling fabulous still, body relaxed and mind cleared. The down fall it's Monday which means I should be working, yet all I can think about is my next session :)
One of the best night's of sleep I have had in a long time, actually slept through my first 2 alarms.
My back and shoulder's feel normal again, I forgot what it feels like to not be tense. I can't say enough good things about Neal, he is definitely worth every dime. Everyone needs to experience it at least once. Nothing beats feeling like your floating on a cloud for a whole evening!
Laura Ellingham -
I am a regular client of Bodywork by Neal and I cannot tell you the many benefits I have continued to see over the past year! In the event that you are looking for energy work or massage, Neal is known by healthcare professionals as the healer of healers. He provides one on one care from start to finish and is a master at his trade. If you are considering it, don't hesitate as it truly is a life-changing experience!
Brandy Figueroa -
