Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • After my second back surgery my doctor sent me to Mr. Joiner or therapy. That was ten years ago. I got lucky. Marvin's knowledge of his craft puts him in a class of sports therapist far ahead of anyone I have ever had work on me. I have continued to remain active after having nine surgeries in my seventy one years of life. I would probably be sitting in a recliner or using a walker to get around but when the pain starts to get me down, I call Marvin. With his help I am able to maintain an active life. I fish the bays at Matagorda, I ride a motorcycle, I do my own yard work and wash my own truck. I couldn't do that without the therapy that helps me manage my pain.

    I come in for my appointment sore and tight and I leave feeling so much better. Marvin finds sore spots that I didn't even know I had. I love his pummeler machine. He has helped a lot with my achilles tendon problem. I actually look forward to my appointments. Thank you.

  • By far the best deep tissue massage I have received in Houston. As a bodybuilder, I don't say that lightly. Marvin will make you feel like just got hit by a bus, but thats a good thing!

    Marvin displayed the utmost professionalism. His profound knowledge is evident in his skill!

  • Highly recommend Advance muscle care! Marvin is extremely knowledgeable, professional, with genuine concern and care for his clients. He has helped me immensely with my back, should and neck pain and a number of years ago when I first used him, his treatments together with aqua therapy prevented me from having back surgery. I cannot speak highly enough of him and his practice.

    I felt wonderful a day later. I regained some range of motion back in my joints and my muscles are no longer sore.

  • My son is a runner and was having discomfort in his back and hamstring. Marvin did wonders. JC said our of all the therapists he's gone to Marvin is the best.

    I highly recommend! My hip has been in pain for a year and finally I found Marvin, and he is working out the muscles and joints to release the tension and pain. I will not go anywhere else now

  • Awesome sport massage will definitely come back!!

    Marvin provides amazing pain relief that keeps me functional!

Marvin is working on my rotator cuff area. He is helping me with the pain and to get better mobility.

Well, I went there with a lot of trigger points in my upper back and neck due to a C2 - T1 neck fusion, to the extent where I had headaches on a daily basis. I saw Marvin and he did he performed a deep muscle massage and at some points, I felt like dying right there right then. The day after the treatment I felt like a bus has hit me BUT the second day I felt great, I do not have any muscle pain, I can move my neck again and are really feeling much much better. It was not comfortable when he did the treatment but trust me the relieve afterward was worth all of the pain during the treatment and I'll go there at least once a month to have my spasms worked out!

My son has been going to Marvin since January 2018. After every session, he comes out of there feeling so much better. Marvin has not only eased his pain after a rough football game, but has helped him minimize his injury time. We recommend Marvin to anyone we know. Thank you, Marvin!

Marvin listened to what hurt and what needed to be worked on. I felt so great when my session was done. If you're looking for a soothing massage, this isn't your place, but if you are wanting to actually get your body back into normal working order Marvin is your guy! I will definitely be back!

Marvin Joiner has been my physical therapist for over five years. He has helped me continue to stay active after two back surgeries and without him, I'm sure that I that my life would be very different. I saw him yesterday and today I'll be heading to Matagorda to do a little fishing.

I told Marvin my repaired ACL knee was losing range of motion if he could help... He looked at it and said sure. He went to town and I've gotten 15-20 degrees of more bend and he minimized the pain from the stiffness because he got me more range of motion. Then he went to town on my impinged shoulders and boy I feel 18 again. Awesome session and highly recommended for anybody who wants a "real" massage.

Marvin was excellent in his assessment and went straight to work on my tight shoulders. He freed them up by working the shoulders and all the surrounding parts around them. I've been to other masseuses and they seem to "shotgun" areas. Marvin actually had a "laser scope" and went right to the problem areas. Highly recommended for his technical work.

Marvin always knows exactly where my pain and/swelling are and he works on what is needed and solves my problems. Without all his hard work I would barely be able to get around. When I first came to Marvin I hobbled in like a very old lady and he could barely touch me, but he has stretched my tight muscles and done so much good work on me that now I can move around so much better and he can do deep tissue work on me. He is a master at myofascial release and trigger point therapy as well as being able to drain my lymph glands. He is also very easy to work with, very professional, and always punctual.

Marvin is a highly skilled massage therapist who has done an excellent job in relieving a neck problem I've had over the years. Regular massage sessions with him have helped me remain pain-free. I have happily referred several friends to him who tell me he has helped them also, including my husband who no longer has an issue with lower back pain. I highly recommend Marvin!
