A bad accident in my youth (fractured pelvis, hip, ribs), began to show up as muscle and joint pain a few years ago (as my body aged around the injury). When the pain got worse I tried physical therapy, steroid shots, and chiropractic visits for more than two years but got very little relief. As a last ditch effort I thought I would try deep tissue massage as it had been suggested at physical therapy. I found John by doing a search online for sports/deep tissue massage, and when, after only a few visits, John helped me with his skillful deep tissue massage technique, my hope was renewed.
I have had good massages before but have not had so obviously experienced a practitioner as John. I can feel bound up fascia and deep muscles release during each session. Thankfully, I no longer need to take anti-inflammatory drugs, which I had been taking at maximum dosages on a daily basis. When sitting or standing for long periods I have found that I can manage pains that crop up with a few minor adjustments to my posture, which John taught me. His guidance on healthy positioning for standing, walking, sitting for long periods at work, and in my yoga practice, has been invaluable in helping me sustain the benefits of the massage throughout the time between sessions. My heart goes out to anyone who has suffered from chronic pain and lost hope for relief as I had, so I do not take it lightly to say, without reservation, this excellent practitioner will serve you well.
