REVIEWS for my Coaching or Bodywork services

by Susan on Jun 09
I have been seeing Ben for a back injury for the last 3 months. He's highly skilled and super smart about how the body & muscles work—which translates into a sports massage that heals and rejuvenates. If you're serious about your overall health add one of Ben's massages to your routine.

Ben was very knowledgeable and gave me some additional suggestions for self care. Very helpful.

Just thought I'd let you know the K-tape is helping a lot! I definitely still have some pain (particularly crossing midline with internal rotation) but after things calmed down from the massage and with the tape it feels a lot better and much less pain! Should I just call the main number if I need to make an appointment for a quick taping when this starts to come off? Thanks, Jen

Ben was fantastic! He gave a great massage and suggested stretches/myofascial release techniques moving forward to help with my problem areas. Also very nice and easy to talk to. :)

Ben is great, amazing actually. My first sports massage with him. I came in with back pain and left pain free : )
by Heather on Feb 09
Ben is great! I'm pretty chatty so I talk to Ben a lot and he's very patient and good at explaining to me what muscles he's working on and how they're connected and what might be contributing to any pain. There are certainly days when I just don't want to talk - and he gets it and is good at matching my moods. Ben's also taught me a couple of good neck and lats stretches which have helped a lot since I was constantly achy - which is why I started going. I've seen Ben for about 6 months now and strongly recommend him as a massage therapist.

There is genuine pleasure in finding a talented, compassionate professional like Ben. Clearly devoted to the full make up of his clients, he displays a terrific balance between deep knowledge and intuition about what will work best. He is focused entirely on your quality of life and works hard to create a strong foundation on which you can achieve your goals. Outstanding to find someone of his skill level here in the wonderful small town of Durham!
