I was in a auto accident and have severe whiplash and my right hip is sprained. I have been seeing Danielle for almost two months. When I first came to Danielle I could barely turn my neck and the rest of my body felt very stiff. I am seeing her two days a week and since I have been with Danielle, I am able to turn my neck more easily. (My range of motion is so much better) And she is now able to do deep tissue massage and get to those injured areas. It hurts at the time because she is able to get into those muscles and work them but after she is done I feel so much better. I have 3 more massages left that the insurance will pay and then I will see Danielle once a month for matience. If you are looking for a massage therapist that is not only good with her hands but she is so knowledgeable as well, she knows what she is doing and I feel safe and relaxed with her. She knows what she is doing and I think she is "Excellent" and will make you feel better.

Amazing person! Such a delight to work with! Kathrina listens very well, has a great understanding of anatomy and knows how to use leverage for a real deep massage. She helped me understand a great deal about my body and did the work exactly where I asked her to. She is very comprehensive, intelligent and friendly. Her rates are appropriate for the market and she has a high level of professionalism. I will definitely be returning to see Kathrina! She was amazing!!

Layne has been my massage therapist regularly for several years. She is intuitive and therapeutic with her treatments in a caring and soulful way. I have experienced relaxation, deep tissue, myofascial release, and cranial sacral massage with her. She knows my body and its reactive ways and stays focused and attentive to what I need in each treatment. I highly recommend her!

I've been doing massage therapy with Layne for--is it ten years now?--and I've got to say that I've never been in the hands of anyone who is more skilled, intuitive, creative, and hits the mark every time, than her. She constantly educates herself and incorporates those new techniques into her repertoire, which is one of many reasons I keep coming back.

I have had several massages with Asiyih for pain in my neck and arms. She has been very adept at pinpointing the problem areas and where they stem from. She is very good at communicating what she is doing , and asking about the level of pressure you are comfortable with. She has helped to alleviate the pain in my neck and arms tremendously, and I highly recommend her.

Asiyih is great. It is clear that she is an expert in her field. She is great at massage, stretching, and guiding you on becoming a healthier person. I've really enjoyed her ability to work on multiple areas of my body instead of just another 90-minute full body massage. We'll continue to work with her until one of us moves too far away.

I have been treated by Ms Paddock numerous times over the years, Reiki and Cranial-Sacral. I have a rare brain disorder that no medical doctor, or drug, is effective in treating. Maybe 20 times I have visited her for the above referenced services. After her treatment, a calm returns to my system (brain) that is of enormous relief, and that no medicne can produce. . Ms Paddock is not only certified for these services, as well as Massage Theraphy, but pursues her own continuing education in the healing arts in with a most dedicated passion. A number of things are impressive about Ms Paddock. She seamlesly blends complete professionalism, while immediately putting her clients at total ease. In addition, she has a rare, almost immediate intuitive idea about her clients and what treatments would best serve them. Professional, talented, caring and always spot on, there is nothing in the treatments I have recieved from her that could be any better.

This is the best, I do mean the BEST, place for a massage. I have had a lot of massages in my time and some were good, but Jen is definitely one of the best. She is so intuitive and knows so many different types of massage techniques. Her room is peaceful and warm, comfortable and soothing. The sheets are so soft. I used to go because my body ached from all the things I make it do. I found that the massages eliminated the aches and pain! I know, I'd heard they do that, but when it actually happened I was surprised. You've gotta try a massage from Jen. Definitely worth it. Trish

Jennifer did an excellent job with my massage, I asked for a pressure between Swedish and deep tissue and it's was outstanding ! She is a professional, and listens well. After my massage my body was relaxed and my muscles were not hurting , I am glad I was able to find her, will be going back soon !!

Amber always does an amazing job. I see her for massage to work on my troubled areas and pain from working on my feet and she always knows what I need without having to tell her specifically where it hurts. She always finds it. She is wonderful and knows what she is doing. And she is strong, but can also give a light relaxing massage as well. Whatever you may need, I definitely recommend her!

I've been a client of Amber's for about three years now and couldn't be happier. Whether it's therapeutic deep tissue work or just for relaxation, she always sends me home better than I arrived. She has a natural intuition that I have seen in few massage therapists.

Amanda was very professional and flexible with her schedule. I contracted her services for my girlfriend and she was 100% satisfied with the 90 minute massage she received. She was able to locate and relieve many of her problem areas. this was the first time I have seen her so relaxed that she actually passed out. Unfortunately for me I was locked out of the hotel room when she was passed out and it took us 30 minutes to get into the room, LOL. We recommend her highly for anyone looking for a quality healer that understands and can find the areas that need to be worked on. Thank you so much Amanda for taking care of her, we wish you lived closer to us here in CA.

Richard Pope is an excellent acupuncturist and massage therapist, who has developed a way to utilize both of these modalities in one session to help the patient. Richard has an almost uncanny way of finding exactly where your pain or other issue is coming from, and then addresses it as close to the root of the issue as possible. For example, with back pain in my own case, he was able to trace along the muscles (and energy meridians as well I suspect) to find these hard lumps that had formed in the muscles and which were causing a large amount of pain. Over a few treatments these lumps were loosened and the pain was nearly gone. As an acupuncturist, I recommend Richard for any kind of issue you might have. For example, Richard introduced me to how a cold can be either completely averted or at least the symptoms lessened if you get an acupuncture treatment just as you start to feel it coming on. I met Richard while he was in his final year of acupuncture college, and ever since then have found him to be very helpful with all kinds of issues. I highly recommend that you try Richard's services.

I experienced Richard to be as knowledgeable as he is compassionate and understanding. He takes the necessary time to understand the problem fully before prescribing any therapy. I personally find his method of combining both acupuncture and massage very effective. I have been amazed that certain aspects of my injury never returned after just one treatment. I always looked forward to my next visit and consistently experienced continued healing. Spending time with Rich is also a very enjoyable experience as he is quite a pleasant young man.

Richard is kind and patient. My first massage left me quite sore the next day or two. I thought he went too deep, but I got good relief once the soreness abated. I've seen him twice and was a bit jammed up timewise each time. He was flexible and accommodating. I like his gentle manner.

So a year ago I had a little fall at work. I landed face first with hands down to brace me on the carpet after falling over a couch. It took a couple of weeks before it started to hurt, but when it started my shoulders ached all the time, and I soon lost range of motion. I let this continue for 5 months before I went to the doctor. she told me without extensive PT it would go away in @ 18 months. Corey found out, and he said " I can fix that for you!" He worked on pin pointing the problem and worked on my shoulders. in one 45 min session I had 100% use of my right shoulder by the next day. My left shoulder was worse that took another half hour a week later, but I also had 100% use after the session. There was no pain involved in the treatment, it actually felt good, like a really deep massage. I am so glad I listened to him, and would recommend this for anyone with frozen shoulder or deep muscle issues. Thanks Corey you saved me a year of pain

I had been dealing with pain and declining health problems for years and had the lucky opportunity to meet Corey Walden and start personal training with him as part of a push to really turn my whole health situation around. With just his personal training alone I was able to break my dependence on weekly massages that I had been getting just to be able to move. With the addition of Neurokinetic Therapy we've really found the sources of my pain and mobility problems, and I'm feeling better and moving better every week! Corey Walden is a crucial part of improving my health and wellness; Corey is very knowledgeable and very easy and fun to work with. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better, move better, and be in better health!

Although I had never seen or had contact with her before, Abby gave me a 90 minute massage at 5:45 on a Sunday because I had suffered from a severe headache for 10 days. I contacted her through Thumbtack. She worked very hard at making my muscles relax and my headache ease. It is not totally gone but it is significantly better than it was before the massage. She is very skilled. I have had a lot of massages in my life and this was one of the deepest, most impactful I have had. She was careful to make certain that she was working within my pain comfort zone. I highly recommend her as a very skilled massage therapist.

I found Kelly when I needed someone to massage my mothers back. Mom has scoliosis and spinal stenosis and, as a result has a difficult posture which causes a lot of tension on her shoulders and back. Kelly's massage techniques, while sometimes painful as she finds and gently releases the knots, are very helpful to moms overall comfort. Kelly has an excellent working knowledge of muscle groups, knows why some pains lead to others. She applies heat and massages with lotion rather than oil, which we appreciate! She also applies athletic tape to help posture muscles for the weeks' time in between massages. Kelly is a lovely, sympathetic and caring person, and mom always looks forward to her weekly massage!

Kelly was very polite and business like. I went with the 90 minute deep tissue massage. After telling Kelly my lower back and left shoulder and neck where the areas to work on. She went to work on my lower back all the way up to my neck and an hour and a half later I was feeling great. Thank you Kelly

Greetings, First, let me tell you that Betty is one of the most personable, easy to communicate with and non-judgmental people I've ever met -- especially in the area of health care, wellness and therapies. Second, and this is related, she will put you at ease in a way that from the first few minutes, you know you're going to have deep relaxation, muscular release and soon you'll know it will be a wave or trance that overcomes you! Third, and this is key for me, I'm 50 and while athletic, I've got lots of aches and pains and Betty's intuitive claim is NOT a sales pitch. It's real. I had a massage therapist who had that sixth sense for many years at my health club and Betty is the first I've experienced since then. It's a pleasure when you don't have to keep talking and say "no" or "would you go deeper on my foot" -- she gets it in advance. And when you do make a suggestion or ask for advice, she is right there and in a very artful and effective way. I'm gushing, like this website says we're ok to do. Don't miss Betty. P.S. I rarely write these, because for a bad therapist, I don't like to put people down; for a great one like Betty, the risk is that so many people will schedule I'll be locked out!!! Oh, well, she deserves the praise. Stan

I arrived to EastWest on 38th & Belmont and was immediately greeted by the LMT. He asked how I was feeling & what (if anything) in particular he should focus on. After our discussion, he gave me the perfect amount of time to get ready (at other places, I've experienced waiting 5 or more minutes for the LMT to return). For beginners, his hands were warm and well-oiled. He was able to go deep, which felt great. He quickly uncovered a pretty big knot in my low back (that I wasn't previously aware of). He checked in several times to ensure the pressure was o.k. Most of the time, the deep tissue was awesome. However, there were a few spots -where as he moved along a path, my body became more sensitive. For example, when he massaged my feet at the base of my toes and then around my outer thighs. The first time, I let him know & he immediately eased up. The second time, I could tell he was reading my body-language & automatically lightened the pressure (without me having to say anything). The thoroughness of his massage relaxed my body and I ended up drifting off into sleep for a little bit. I awoke when it was time to turn over. I was impressed that he took my alignment into consideration. For example, after moving my neck to the left (massaging & stretching it) he would bring it back to center before moving it to the right. Overall, he really listened to my concerns and did a great job of balancing his focus on my "problem" spots, while still giving a full body massage which I had asked for. In closing, I'd say this LMT is intuitive, has great energy and possesses a friendly & gentle demeanor. It's been a couple of days since I received his massage and my body feels really good. :)

I've been treated by RT for over a year. He spends a good amount of focus on my points of concern and can adjust his pressure according to my needs. I feel completely comfortable with him, which, as a female, is important to me. My last visit managed to work out knots I didn't even know were there! I know his priority is to help my body feel better regain proper mobility. I will return to RT for treatment again & again!

I have been seeing Andrew for a few years now, and I am so grateful that I found him! He is the only practitioner who has ever made significant progress in addressing the chronic pain that I have had in my arms and shoulders for years. He is very gifted at finding just the right spots that need attention and working them until they get better. It does not often feel great in the moment, but I always notice relief afterwards. He is very dedicated to helping his clients feel better in their bodies!

Eli gives a great deep tissue massage for an affordable price. I have chronic neck pain that gives me headaches and her understanding of the muscles that contribute to my pain and what will work for me has reduced my pain tremendously. I love that she explains what she is doing and describes the methods she's using. Also, she incorporates the use of essential oils which smell wonderful and contribute to pain relief. Eli is passionate about what she does and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with muscle tension and pain.
