Donovan Loomis LMT
WA State Dept. of Health Massage
Donovan started his career as a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1999 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He worked as a Massage Therapist for several years in Las Vegas, NV, Washington DC, and Phoenix, AZ until he decided to change directions and pursue his bachelors degree in Video Game Design. After graduating, Donovan relocated to the Pacific Northwest to work for a small 3D design firm. Although he loved working in 3D design, he missed the face to face interaction and ability to help others.
Donovan and his wife started a non-contact boxing program for people with Parkinson's disease in January of 2017 after getting certified as coaches through a non profit called Rock Steady Boxing. He absolutely loves working with such amazing people who participate in the program, as well as learning and understanding as much as he can about this neurological disorder. After a short time of working with people with Parkinson's disease, he realized some of the major patterns and issues of the disease are posture, rigidity, and loss of range of motion which can be greatly beneficial with massage in addition to the boxing program. Donovan's specialties in Thai Massage, Somassage, and his many years of experience has allowed him to cater to this specific population to help with mobility and range of motion.
Living in Seattle has provided many opportunities for continuing education in the healing arts and alternative medicine. This has allowed Donovan to take several new certifications to help facilitate his clients specific needs, and he is constantly keeping up with new and advanced techniques. In addition to working specifically with people with Parkinson's disease, Donovan also works with a wide range clients and will tailor each massage to the specific individuals needs.

Donovan is a really professional, meticulous, and passionate massage therapist. The 60min massage was like magic. I felt so much better altogether afterwards. I highly highly recommend this place!
I had a great 90 minute massage. I work at a computer all day and my neck and back were so sore when I came in. I feel MUCH better now after the massage and will definitely be coming back!

I have been to many masseuse and Donovan has had the most beneficial impact thus far. I felt so comfortable the second I walked into the room. His personality, skills and technique are the full package! I came in very sore, tense and felt so relaxed and at ease when I left. I think it is really important to not feel rushed in a massage session and I felt Donovan took his time to truly understand me as a client. Also, as an active person I had a full day the following morning; I felt well rested and stronger than my normal self. I know my body needed this attention and I'm glad I listened. I defiantly will be coming back! Highly recommend to everyone, Thanks Donovan!

I feel inches taller, more relaxed, open and my muscles are loose and singing. Donovan’s technique is incredible, the space is calm and easy to get to. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone from those who hunch over a desk or guitar all day to hard core fitness folks. Do yourself a favor, it’s body bliss.
Very professional and fantastic massage.

MoreI went in for a massage not knowing exactly what to ask for, but immediately felt I could trust Donovan to figure out what I needed to feel better. I regularly suffer from neck and shoulder pain and tightness, and that was completely alleviated. The massage was both very effective and deeply relaxing. I’m grateful for Donovan’s dedication to my needs and the restful atmosphere he has cultivated.
Donovan gave an excellent 90-minute deep tissue massage. I would definitely book again!

MoreI was referred to Donavan buy two different people who raved about his massages! I went in for a deep tissue and it was hands down the best massage I have ever had. Such unique techniques, great pressure, and comfortable atmosphere. He takes his time getting to know your bodies needs and focus areas. You can tell he is passionate about helping his clients get their bodies back to health!

MoreI typically wait to get massages until I'm in pain and this time was no exception. Donovan was referred to me by my in laws and I wish I had seen him sooner! It was one of the best massages I've had! I was experiencing low back pain in an area that felt too deep and unreachable but he was able to do some unconventional techniques to fix me! I was up and dancing around that same day, paddle boarding by the next! I'll be setting up a recurring appt with Donovan from now on!

As a hygienist my back/neck gets so knotted to the point I get chronic headaches. I come here for massage every three weeks and my body feels 100 times better after every visit. Been coming for almost a year. Would highly recommend!
Deep tissue massages are a great way to break down all the knots and get your body feeling it's best, Hailey. I appreciate the loyalty and am glad I could always be here to help you relax. Thanks for the recommendation! -Donovan L., Owner
