Hi Timothyray, It was so good to see you again. The trust of our friendship made it possible to relax and receive the benefits of your skills. I came in with stuck aches and pains from old and recent wounds. I have been concerned about abdominal discomfort, less energy than I need for my work, plus muscle and joint conditions, and anxiety. After your treatment which included Cranial Release Technique and your healing touch in other troubled areas, I experienced a flush of fresh energy through my body. What has continued, also, is that I am calmer, unworried and physically more relaxed and comfortable. My abdomen feels good! I so appreciate your setting an accepting atmosphere for all body, mind and spirit matters. This eased the surfacing of memories attached to body pains, to help them release and heal. In a way, it is difficult to put into words the deeper sense of connection that I feel to my life, but I feel grateful! It is my pleasure to recommend you and your work to others and I will be doing so. Many thanks and I will be back to see you again. Your friend, Sylvia


Dear Timothy Ray,
Thank you for the beautiful and sometimes slightly painful therapy session today. I have had other massages, but this was by far the most relief and educational experience I have ever had in dealing with a massage and body awareness. Your knowledge and insight is amazing.  I am looking forward to our next visit. I was puddle-ish when I left your well-designed and attractive office. I am looking forward to practicing some of the things you taught me.

Thinking of you today. I have tried so many modalities to ease my chronic pain. Your techniques seem to last the longest. I still feel better than I usually do with less aching muscles. Thank you so much. I am grateful! -- EW


How can one go from so much pain to so little pain in a couple of sessions? What a difference. Thank you so much for you and your therapeutic touch.
--See you next Saturday.

My feet thank you.


Amazing Approach to Massage and Bodywork
I commend Timothyray for providing a much needed and very personalized service here in Sarasota. Timothyray has a unique and sensitive approach to massage therapy; it is almost medicinal in nature. If you are in need of a therapist that asks questions about your areas of physical or emotional stress and really listens to your responses, then give Timothyray a chance to help you. I came in with a very specific set of issues, including persistent dizziness of which I have suffered from for almost 7 years, along with the usual aches and pains. We walked through my medical history and Timothyray very professionally explained to me different bodywork options to try to reduce the dizziness, but also the stress that comes with such a confusing and complicated symptom. My experience has been very positive. It is not just going for a traditional massage, it is much more. I leave feeling rejuvenated and hopeful that someday, I will be able to finally be permanently relieved from my dizziness. Timothyray has been very helpful and caring, it has been a really wonderful experience working with him.

My experience with Timothyray , honestly was indescribable. It was by far the best experience with bodywork that I have ever had. His knowledge about both the physical body and my non-physical self was incredible. He was able to explain why certain body parts hurt so bad. And helped me understand the root causes of my chronic neck and shoulder pain.

He gave me helpful advice on how to manage and improve many areas  of my health. 

My experience with Timothyray was nourishing to my mind, body and soul.

I have had lots and lots of massage. This is the best. Period.
Most massage therapists do not focus on the causes of my pains and dysfunctions.  Fortunately, Timothyray does and he knows where to work and he is willing to work deep enough to get the results that I have wanted all along. Thank you, Timothyray for doing such a great job. Also thank you for being willing to work on me and help me learn how to do some of these basic massage strokes on my partner. I am very grateful my partner gave me this massage as a gift.

Finding Timothyray Laber is like knowing that there is a safety net for your physical body!

For 1 1/2 years I have had extremely limited range of motion in my left shoulder. I have gone the orthopedic, cortisone, physical therapy route, the rolfing, deep tissue and massage route. Everything was important and everything was significant--however I still did not  regain range of motion in my shoulder. After a few weeks with Timothyray I now have full range of motion--a miracle I never expected. The sessions were at times uncomfortable, a small price to pay for the full, healthy, fluid ease of this wonderful creation we call our body!

He is a rare find and I am beyond grateful for his skills.

Thank you heaps for your much-needed kneading-about on Wednesday. Though I can still
clearly identify your fingerprints on my neck muscles, I stand a little straighter, the shoulder
is not so bound up, and the metatarsal hurt is gone. You did a great deal in only one session
by being able to identify the underlying cause of my general physical distress right away and
to address it by means of the many therapeutic massage modalities you have studied and
I also value your knowledge of nutrition as it is reflected in physiology, and appreciate
your reminders about dehydration, toxic build-up, etc. and the way they affect my body.
Onward and upward!

Review for Timothyray Laber Saturday, Oct 25, 2014 Review for Timothyray Laber: There are many body workers out there who can massage you and relax you. Not many of them are true healers like Timothyray Laber. The minute I met Timothyray and entered his beautiful office space, I felt his gaze look right into me. I had his full attention. His gentle and tender ways made me feel at ease instantly! I came from my hectic workplace but the moment I stepped into his office, I felt a sense of trust and relief. As he began to ask me questions about my history, I felt as if he already knew me! He seemed to listen with ALL his senses! I had surgery in both feet and was experiencing lots of pain there. I listened to him explain some of my issues and knew he was very knowledgable and experienced. When we began my session, I was amazed that Timothyray asked my permission to touch my feet and work on me. This instilled in me his respect for my boundaries, but also a way of participating and giving permission for my own healing! I knew his heart was in the right place! Through gentle manipulations I began to let go and feel relief. Timothy's hands are firm but tender! I felt safe and nurtured. His knowledge of what was going on in my body astounded me and touched my heart deeply. It is rare to find such a compassionate healer who really seems to love what he does and is so willing to share his wisdom! In his sanctuary, I could feel myself letting go more and more until the pain in my feet no longer throbbed and my awareness was heightened. Many times I was almost moved to tears by the kindness he showed me. I do not know how else to explain, but my body feels so much better and so does my heart! I will continue to work with Timothyray so I can heal completely! I have faith that he is a healer in the truest sense! You may go in for a massage, but you will leave with so much more! I feel grateful that I have found Timothyray! He has given me hope that one day I can live without all this pain and I trust he can help me on this healing journey!
