This was my first massage…ever. And I was so impressed with the professionalism and the massage itself. I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep…I could just feel the tension leave my body as he pulled on my arms and fingers. I will definitely be back for another.
March 28, 2012
Yesterday I went in for a massage due to the problems I’ve been having all around with my back and sleeping problems. I didn’t know what exactly I wanted to do, but after going through and talking to Canary, he thought it was best that I got a deep tissue massage and I completely agreed.
It was one of the most intense things I’ve ever felt/ done in my life and afterwards I felt like a million bucks.
I felt calm and relaxed for the rest of the night and fell asleep without any problems and actually STAYED asleep throughout the night. ( Usually I wake up every 2-3 hours throughout the night)
This morning I woke up a bit sore, due to the fact that my back in fact DID need a lot of work done to it but I still feel great and I will, without a doubt, be going to only Canary now for all my massage and relaxation needs.
The enviornment was welcoming and relaxing. The staff was too kind and eager to help with anything they could,while being completely genuine. That’s what sets Strength of the Hands apart from anyone else. I’ve never had a better experience at any other massage place and I was only there for about 55 minutes total with my 45 minute massage.
I recommend The Strength of Hands to anyone from minor to major problems, from aching back to stress to lack of sleep; Canary will find something that will fit exactly what you need most and will treat you like you’re #1 above all other things.

Every month we like to try a new place to get a massage and facial. I received a facial by Amy. She was prompt as well as very detailed with her work. I also enjoyed the products she used. My boyfriend received a message by Canary. He was very impressed with the strength of Canary’s hands. He said it was the best message he had ever received. We can’t wait to go back!
February 29, 2012
I have had several massages with Canary. HE IS AMAZING!! I am a runner and have lots of “issues”. He gives the best therapeutic deep tissue massage in town for sure.
February 25, 2012
I just had a facial with Amy and simply stated it was amazing! Every single second of it. I have had other facials, but never like this. I can’t wait to go back!!!
Plus, she uses great products!
January 30, 2012
The ambiance in the strength of the hands is so invigorating. My massage with Canary was so relaxing, calming and soothing. My facial with Amy was fabulous it made my skin so soft and felt awesome. This place is excellent, friendly and professional.

Rachel gave me a great massage! I don’t find it easy to relax-live life with stress, so what she did made me feel so relaxed. Was in kind of a euphoric state for awhile. Rachel was wonderful-well trained and experienced! Would definitely go back for her to do it again.
January 20, 2012
This was the first Deep Tissue message I’ve had in years. Rachel was AMAZING! She managed to work out a knot that past professionals were unable to get to relax, but Rachel kept working the spot and finally got it to relax. I slept better last night and feel more relaxed this morning than I have in YEARS!
My wife and I will be frequenting this establishment as much as possible. They are friendly, professional and the prices are not only reasonable, but really a deal compared to facilities with less experienced staff!
Thanks Strength of Hands for helping me feel more like myself again!
January 20, 2012
I am a 48 yr old woman that has tried about 5 different massage therapists. Canary Dexter at Strength of the Hands in De Pere, WI has given me the best massage of my life. I have decided to stop trying to find a deal and stick with what works ! As soon as I can, I will schedule a massage at Strength of the Hands !!
January 7, 2012
I’ve had a few massages before and this one rates at the top. I’m a big guy and requested heavy pressure; Heather did a fantastic job. I’ll be going back.
January 6, 2012
I have gone to Canary for the past few months and he is one of the most talented personable therapists I have been to! He has such a neat shop established and perfect location for those who are busy and always on the go in the Green Bay area. I am excited to see his shop expand. He is very good at what he does and I always leave relaxed. I hope to try some of the other new services offered at his shop soon!
January 3, 2012
I came in feeling pain and tightness from my workout regiment as well as feeling stressed out. When I left I was absolutely glowing and feeling like a million dollars. I would recommend Strength of The Hands to anyone looking for a high quality and effective massage. It was fantastic!
December 24, 2011
I found Canary through Living Social. I was so satisfied with my first massage that I purchased more. He is professional and the room is very relaxing. I have recommended him to several of my friends

I was a little nervous about a getting a massage, BUT what a refreshing visit – well worth it. Canary was the answer to all my knots I feel great.
December 17, 2011
Canary is the MOST gifted Massage Therapist you will find! He has the ability to relax the muscles, mind, body and spirit! My massage today was the most relaxing ever! He is very professional in all ways! Trust me, you will feel like a “lighter” person when you walk out of there. I re-booked already. He is AMAZING! THANK YOU CANARY!
December 17, 2011
Had a Swedish Massage from Canary a couple of days ago and feel great! He found a couple of problem areas in my shoulder and leg and they now feel better. And the 60-minute massage was very relaxing. I’ll be booking more massages in the future.
December 8, 2011
I’ve been to see Canary twice now for a deep tissue massage and felt wonderful afterward. I was made to feel welcome and comfortable through out the appointment. Looking forward to the next appointment!
December 2, 2011
Was able to turn my neck with out pain for the first time in days. Canary found my knot and worked his magic. Will definitely be Lotoback, because he doesn’t just relax; he heals.
November 12, 2011
Amazing! Had a deep tissue today and Canary really worked on the knots in my back…so many I am going to need to go back. Purchase another hour deep tissue before leaving. Would recommend to all!
November 12, 2011
Had a wonderful massage experience. I was a bit late arriving yet never felt rushed. The pressure used was near perfect as well as the focus on my problem areas. I would definitely return and recommend Canary to others. Best of luck with the grand opening 11/19!
November 7, 2011
Oh my God, this was my first massage and will not be my last. Didn’t know what to expect and I’ll tell you I never experience anything so awesome. Canary is a gentle and caring person. I will be telling all my family and friends.
October 22, 2011
My back feels amazing!
Just had the Deep Tissue Massage experience. I really enjoyed the intense deep pressure that Canary applied to each one of the knots in my back. Amazing! I purchased another Deep Tissue Massage prior to leaving.
Best massage I have ever had!
October 16, 2011
I had my first deep tissue massage yesterday with Canary and it was “painfully excellent”. I knew I had lots of knots and he found them all. Canary was very professional and is strong enough to really get into the spots that need it the most. LOVE the strong hands on my feet and the attention to them. I’m wondering if he has had reflexology training? I already purchased 3 more massages and look forward to going back next time. Recommend Canary to everyone!
October 5, 2011
Great massage, Canary was excellent. I will be coming back again.
October 1, 2011
Only had a short half hour massage, but oh did it help! I’ve only had a few massages before, and this one was by far the best! Worked my neck and shoulders perfectly! Defiantly going to book another, longer, session soon!!
September 27, 2011
This massage was definitely intense! Canary has strong hands and works out the kinks. I’ll give him 5 stars!!!
September 24, 2011
My massage wit Canary was amazing. Very relaxing
September 23, 2011
Canary gives a great massage. He really focuses on the problem areas. I liked the flow of the massage and his professionalism. He did a wonderful job on my hips and legs, and look forward to working with him again
September 23, 2011
I enjoyed the massage I received from Canary! He was thorough and covered all my needs. I was very surprised that the discomfort I’d been feeling for so long in my sacrum and low back were gone…and still are!! I got a second massage for the future and one for my mom, too! If you want an excellent, competent massage don’t be afraid to try Canary out. I’m very happy to’ve found another therapist that I can trust and know that I’m getting quality. Thanks a ton!
September 22, 2011
Professional, quality massage. Totally relaxing. I liked that it wasn’t in some fancy, goofy spa. The location was somewhat unusual but clean and comfortable. I tried it out through living social and would book again.
September 20, 2011
Had a fantastic massage and will definitely rebook. The room and equipment were very clean; the service was extremely professional. I left feeling relaxed and loose. The entire experience was a positive one and I highly recommend to both men and women to try it out. You will not be dissapointed.
September 20, 2011
Well this was my first massage done by a professional male and I have to say I was quite nervous. What a waste of energy! It was amazing. Someone in a previous testimonial stated they left feeling drunk. They nailed it on the head. This massage was the perfect blend of soothing relief and necessary “pain.” Highly recommend Canary to anyone looking to improve their self care plan at an affordable price!!
September 20, 2011
I found Canary through Livingsocial.com. What a wonderful massage and such a nice person. I have been having problems with my shoulder and he did a great job of getting the muscles to relax. I have already booked my next appointment!
September 15, 2011
Okay…I am the BF that got the gift certificate from the May 29th post by Liz my BF of 35 years. She knows what I like and she knows I am spoiled. She knew I would like him. I get 90 minute massages on a pretty regular basis. I don’t need all the fluff that comes with a fancy spa. I want a clean, comfortable setting. Get a great massage and go about the rest of my day. I like a variety of techniques. Deep tissue to stretching. Canary did a fantastic job. He is gentle and strong at the same time. I will tell you when I left I was almost ‘drunk’ in peace. So ‘drunk’ I forgot to leave a tip. I will have to catch him on the next time and believe you me there will be a next time.
September 14, 2011
I went today because I bought it as a Groupon and needed to use it. I went in and Canary was super nice. Explained my stress and where I know I need to just have him focus on. I had an hour massage and let me tell you it was worth EVERY PENNY. Not only did he focus on my needs but he didn’t slimp on the rest of me either. Some others may have given your feet 2 mins and moved on…not the case here…my whole body is relaxed and feeling great. Love it so much I bought another one right away!!! So worth it and what a great person!
September 11, 2011
I went for a deep tissue massage and Canary did an excellent job! I have had pain in my left shoulder for a long time and the massage definitely helped to work out the problems. I would highly recommend this facility!
September 1, 2011
Thank you for the wonderful massage. The knots in my neck and back are gone. I will definately be booking my next appointment with Strength of Hands. Thanks.
August 29, 2011
Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a Swedish massage by Canary’s gifted and powerful hands. My body, mind and spirt all responded to his special techniques and I felt the release of tension and tightness starting to fade within the first few minutes into the experience. My massage involved long deep stroking, squeezing and stretching, to my feet, legs, arms, hands back, shoulders and head. If you’re looking for a professional-quality life changing massage look no further than “Strength of the hands” Best massage of my life~
August 26, 2011
Excellent Massage I wanted a deeper tissue and it was awesome Thanks!! Cant wait to book again
August 20, 2011
Canary, Thank you for aiding my muscle tension. It was the first time I had a deep tissue massage and I know my muscles will thank you for the coming weeks. I forgot to ask if you felt certain areas were tighter than others? I ask because it maybe something I am doing in my workouts that may be incorrect form or I am too focused on some areas rather than a full balance. It was a pleasure getting to know you and the business. As a reminder, some of the best/biggest companies started during a recession or down economy.Microsoft is but one example. One of my favorite quotes: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. Henry David Thoreau I think of this often when I decide to just go for it! Congrats on your first year! Alissa

I went to Strength of Hands for a deep tissue message before I started the football season. It was really relaxing and just what I needed to get out the kinks and stress that my back had been carryin from off season workouts. I feel better than ever and confident that I will perform phyiscally better as well. Canary was very professional and did a fantasic job. I recommend him to any one who wants a relaxing message and/or is in need of message therapy.
August 16, 2011
I was looking for a massage that would release the tension and stiffness in my neck and back. With the Deep Tissue massage from Canary, today I have much more flexibility and relief in both areas
He does use deep pressure, especially in areas that are tense. I didn’t realize how tight my leg muscles were until he started working on them.
I will try some of the other massages he offers.
There is plenty of parking space in the lot behind the stores.
It would be helpful to newcomers if there were more signs indicating the office location.
August 4, 2011
I just got a massage today and I wanted to tell people about it right away. It was an amazing massage! I was in a car accident 5 months ago and still have back and neck pain from it. I have seen my doctor and go to the chiropractor regularly but I have never felt as relaxed and pain free as I do now since my accident. Thank you Canary!
July 27, 2011
This certainly is the correct name for this particular establishment!–Canary has amazing hands and used them to my best advantage. I would certainly recommend him with no reservations. I really liked the ambience as well. The music and lavender scented eye shield were particularly appreciated.
July 19, 2011
Canary does a fantastic Job…I go to him for Deep tissue Massages and Sport massages to stretch my muscles…I’ve had numerous surgeries and Canary helps to keep me Pain free…I highly recommend his services..
July 14, 2011
I had the 2 hour sports massage. it was a wonderful experience and Canary had great strong hands for a deep tissue massage. He stretched my legs and hips like never before. I will definaltely go back again and again! I am already looking forward to my next massage!!! thanks I feel great
July 11, 2011
I am almost six months pregnant and Canary Dexter is a pro at prenatal massage. The atmosphere is relaxing and calm. I found Canary to have a calming affect on me as well. I plan to continue seeing him through my pregnancy and after.
July 7, 2011
I was a little nervous about having a male massage therapist, but Canary made me feel extremely comfortable and put me in ease. I typically go to the day spa a few times a year, but never had a great massage from there. Canary did an amazing job finding and correcting all my problem areas and even found areas that I didnt even realize I had discomfort in. Its been a few days after my massage and I still feel amazing! I cant wait to refer my friends to him and look forward to my next massage!
June 29, 2011
Canary does an amazing job! He really listened to where my areas of stress and pain were, also taking the time to explain why I was experiencing pain in those areas. I wish I had the time to get massages more as his treatments have been far superior to any other therapist I’ve been to.
June 12, 2011
Canary is an extremely professional, knowledgeable massage therapist. He is very patient with his clients and genuinely cares about a their well-being. I’m very glad to have found Strength of the Hands and Canary. I am a huge fan and I continue to recommend him to all of my friends!
May 29, 2011
Great Job Canary! My massage was fantastic. Relaxing from head to toe. Canary is a total professional. A gentle soul with a very calming personality. Very strong from begining to end. Can’t imagine I would go anywhere else. I had the hot stone massage, and would highly recommend it. Loved it so much that I got a gift certificate for my BF!
May 27, 2011
Canary has a gift. After over 23 years of having body work done by various professionals, Canary set the bar high above the rest. Not only was my deep tissue massage amazing but a life saver. He incorporated many different modalities, i.e. myofascial release, lymphatic, cranial-sacral,swedish,to name a few. I am thankful that the trainers at the Packers organization or Oprah are not presently aware of his ability because he would definitely be hired by them and we would not be able to have access to him.Thank-you Canary for being there when I needed you. I value immensely the package that I purchased and will diligently followup with you for my health and well being.
May 18, 2011
Canary does a fabulous job with all types of massage – hot stone, deep tissue, swedish or hot towel – I’ve had them all and each is done with professionalism and special attention to any areas needing extra work. I highly recommend the 90-minute massage, I am hooked!
May 17, 2011
Soooo-Good & Inspiring, Canary
Canary you are amazing and inspirational person and the best male masseuse. The qualifications of the job for Canary fits him perfect.
I had the Swedish message. The atmosphere was perfect. Clean linen sheets on the message bed, the aroma scent in the air and the relaxing music playing in the background.
I have severe chronic pain. Canary was observant in what steps he had to take to make me feel comfortable and at ease. Canary showed his concerns by taking notifications of the sensation that was going through his hands. This delivered a signal to Canary for him to be aware of the pain I was feeling during the massage. The strength of his hands was quite imaginable.
My massage was superb. I definitely will be back, you sure can count on it. Canary has a great personality. Just would like to say “Canary you have not lost your touch”. Your rate is A+ all the way.
May 10, 2011
I have to admit…the location could be a bit easier to access. I was confused on where to go. There were no signs showing where to go in the hallway. Also , he was a little late and the room was cold. I do however have to say he did an excellent job. I had never had a massage by a man before, and I was a bit nervous. He was very professional ! I had a deep tissue massage and it was a bit too deep for my liking, but my muscles feel so much better now. I for sure needed it. I will definately give him another try with perhaps a different kind of massage. I think my husband would benefit from the deep tissue massage for sure!
May 9, 2011
Fantastic massage! I’m usually sore after a deep tissue massage, but I still felt relaxed the day after my massage. I’ll definitely be back!
May 8, 2011
I walked out feeling so relaxed and also revived. I had a Hot Stone massage and it was amazing. At first I didn’t know what to expect having a male masseuse but Canary made me feel comfortable before we got started.
He is very talented I plan on telling anyone who is looking for a great massage! To me it’s more about the massage/masseuse than the ‘pretty package’ ie; the plush robes, rose petal soaking tubs or the Evian water. Canary place has pleasant ambiance and that’s all you need. You’re there for the massage, right?
Bottom line: fantastic massage, great personality and I will be back!
