I woke up with low back pain, and knew I needed a massage to work it out. I called and got a same day appointment (on the weekend). What a relief it was! Diana is thorough, using aromatherapy oils and lotions (heated) as well as hot stones and calming music. The heated table loosened my muscles, and her technique worked wonders for me. I made a follow up appointment on the spot! I highly recommend Go Madd 4 Massage!” Sally C.
Diana is extremely effective!!! She finds where you are hurting and works on it so you feel much better afterwards. Diana is passionate about others and helping them to feel better. I highly recommend her massage services." Lani R. in St Augustine, Fl
I wanted to send you a personal note to thank you for a wonderful massage. I really enjoyed the lower back and hip work plus some of the stretches. I wish we were closer because I would definitely become a regular client. I have been to a dozen therapist but you are by far the best. I look forward to seeing you in late June. Thanks for a nice birthday present.

Couples and Group Testimonials:
My husband and I were new in town. Packing and unpacking the moving truck, and we were hurting. We found Diana by web search, she was the first to respond with a "yes, we can to couples massage" and quick! We've had a few since then, I also booked a threesome with my sisters. She's always very accommodating with scheduling. Her massage always is wonderful. I appreciate that she focuses in on the areas I ask her to and really makes a difference in my pain and tension in these areas. The therapists that she's had for couple and triple massage have all been great too. Thanks Diana!

Free Massage Tips

Please let the therapist know if this is your first massage.
It is normal to be nervous or anxious about your first massage as you don't know what to expect.
It is ok to ask questions to understand what will happen during the massage
Relaxation music will be played during a massage unless requested otherwise. All music used is on my iphone or ipod depending whether office or outcall.

Being an Example for Massage
What Massage Means For Me....
I have been an avid massage receiver (for 20+ yrs) well before I ever went to school for it. I receive a weekly massage from one of 3 licensed massage therapists in the St Augustine/Jacksonville area that I use, & it makes a huge difference in my life.
I firmly believe in the power of massage to aid the body in healing, getting rid of toxins, and improving the overall blood & lymph circulation. For anyone in sports or who works out, like I do, getting a regular massage (maintenance being monthly at least) is a major part of the whole plan to maintain balance in the body and ensure proper recovery. I do zumba dance 2-3 times a week and majorly need to have a massage after the muscle soreness.

All massages are by appt only; this is not walk-in, but same day appts are available. Other Licensed Massage Therapists (male & female) are available for couples & group massages & full reflexology sessions. Sundays are not available unless booked in advance for appts.
- Please note that a sign on the front door states *Massage in Session* . The door is locked & will be opened for the next client. This ensures privacy & confidentiality for all clients. Please wait outside in the comfortable chairs provided until the therapist is ready for your session. If it is raining, then please wait in your vehicle. There is an awning above the chairs, but we want you to be comfortable until we are ready for you. Please know that even if we get behind by 10-15 minutes due to individual attention or busy scheduling, that you will get your full time & focus. We aim for consistency & great massages. Your help is appreciated in this manner!
- There is a sweet & friendly dog named Praline in the office at all times. She greets all clients & is an asset to the office. We have not found any client, even those allergic to dogs, to have any problem as she has hair, not fur. If you are scared of dogs, please advise the therapist before your appt so she is not brought that day. We have found ways to work around any issue without any problem.
- Payment is due at the time of service. Please inform Diana if you have a gift certificate upfront when booking appt or if you have a coupon or special deal so there is no confusion about the type of massage or pricing. If you do not present the gift certificate, coupon, or special deal upfront before massage starts & have not informed the owner of the full situation, then you may have to pay full price in order to receive the massage. Please note that as business owner, I can dishonor any situation that I deem disrespecful, rude, or offensive to me & my business. We are here to serve you the valued customer & it is a win win situation when there is mutual respect.
- If you need an invoice for business or medical reasons, then please let the therapist know. At the office, it can be filled out on a form. For mobile services, it needs to be emailed to you.

- The 'madd' part of Go Madd 4 Massage stands for make a difference daily which is something I strive for both in personal & business life.
Availability for Massages
- Not a walk-in service, but I can be available in a short period of time for office or outcall appointments as long as the time you are looking for is still available. Tentative hours are 11 am (1st appt) and 5pm (last appt), but earlier or later can be arranged in advance, depending on the day. Saturdays are available for about 4-5 hours, varying from weekend to weekend. Other times (evening, before 11am, or on Sundays) are available by appt. If you are looking for couples or group massages using multiple therapists, please try to plan in advance. I will do my best to accommodate all requests for same day massages, but it is first call, first serve, subject to availability. As of July 1, 2011, all requests for couples' massages requiring 2 lmts must be scheduled at least 24 hrs in advance, whether it is office or outcall. If a couples' massage is requested for same day, I will try to accommodate, but it is subject to availability whether another therapist will be available at short notice.
Any of the massage types can be purchased as a gift certificate either at the office or online. I have even delivered them to a client for purchase for anyone not able to get away from the work day. There is a $3.50 fee online to cover shipping/handling. Since my office is not walk-in, please call or text ahead so I am available between clients to sell you the certificate. Gift certificates are transferrable to another person other than the one listed during purchase. As of 6.1.15, there is now a 6 month expiration, & they are not refundable once purchased. Any gift certificates that are out there that haven't been used will still be honored since no expiration was originally on them. In order to redeem, they must be mentioned at the time of booking appointment & presented upfront before the massage begins in order to be valid so that the correct type of massage is given. They are only redeemable thru the owner, Diana, & not thru any other therapist. A gift certificate cannot be purchased for outcall (mobile) appts.

Reception area to Massage Office
Here is our always-a-smiling mascot Praline ready to greet her next client in our large reception area.
Remember to Massage Your Pet Today!
I would like you to meet Praline, the massage mascot. She visits the office frequently and loves to welcome all the clients. Many clients are 'trained' to bring her treats too. She loves getting massages as well as being a part of the massage experience for clients. She is very laid back and relaxes easily and loves to listen to music. Many clients swear that she adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Sometimes she will actually escort the next client from their car and walk them to the massage front door. She has done pet therapy at nursing homes and loves to cheer up all the residents with her sweet demeanor and friendly smiling face. If you hear her barking, she is letting me know the next client is here, but her tail is always wagging at the same time, just part of her greeting & excitement.

Reflexology is done on the feet & hands only using a reflex method of compression massage with the client fully clothed. We start by soaking your feet in a relaxing hot foot bath. It is also known as zone therapy as each part of the foot or hand corresponds to a certain part of the body to elicit a response activating chi energy lines. As a healing form of therapy, it relaxes nerves & nervous tension. Crystalline deposits form on nerve endings & are tender when compressed. Put your 'best food forward
toward better health. If you want massage of other areas, then we suggest the half & half massage or ecletic mix massages.
