Ben is absolutely fantastic. Except for the pain :^), I enjoyed my massage therapy very much. The session fixed the neck and shoulder pain I was having. Please do everything you can to keep Ben working at the JCC.

Great experience - was experiencing lower back pain from cycling and Ben was able to both pinpoint the pain and explain to me what was happening. He helped loosen the muscles. 4 days later, no pain at all on or off the bike.
