About Evolve

Pain Management Specialists

Evolve Massage and Alternative Healing was born out of the idea that massage is essential for the reduction and management of many, if not all chronic pain conditions. Many of our clients have chronic pain that Traditional Western Medicine only knows how to treat with drugs and surgery. Many chronic pain conditions and even other chronic issues including anxiety and depression can have their roots in muscular tension and knots.

“We are passionate about helping you feel better. We are not only going to use our expertise to release tight, knotted muscles, but we will also council you in stretching and meditation techniques to take home with you so you can make marked improvements even between sessions.
Pain is NOT a given side effect of aging… often it is a choice. We can help you understand what that means and how to make choices to manage and eventually relieve your daily pain.” -Michael

Our new Homewood Location is on Crescent Ave, right off downtown Homewood, near OLS.

This place is warm, inviting, and has a heightened vibrational energy that can be felt when you walk in the door. I must say, this provided me with exactly what I needed. Ian answered all of my questions helped me to hone in on clearing my energy. I left feeling light as a feather.I truly recommend this to anyone open-minding and ready.

I met with Ian after a long week at work. I had been on my feet and lifting heavy items and I needed to relax. Initially I thought of a massage as a 'treat yourself' relaxtion experience, I didn't realize a message could be a therapeutic tool. Ian is incredibly knowledgeable about the muscular system. Ian worked all of my muscles with great depth, intuition and care. In all aspects, this was a relaxing, and comfortable experience. I felt relaxed from the moment I entered Evolve. I had a 60 minute deep tissue massage, and I will be scheduling another appointment in the near future. Thanks Ian!

I had injured my lower back for the fourth time in only a few years. Had a few massages but nothing like this. Saw Michael and could tell after the first session these people know what they're doing. Scheduled four more appointments and feel better than I than have in years. Highly recommend!

Ian is by far the best massage therapist I've ever visited. I relieved so much muscle tension that I didn't realize I had. I will be booking another appointment very soon.

I've been to Ian a couple of times now and he is the most talented massage therapist I have been to! He does a great deep tissue massage and stretches out the muscles he has worked on. He kept me mindful of my breathing throughout the massage as well. I would highly recommend Ian to anyone looking for a massage!
