Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Joel is responsive to patient needs and very good at really getting into the fascia and those painful knots.

    I truly appreciate Joel’s Professionalism. He starts each session, asking how I’m feeling and if there are any areas I would like him to concentrate on. After my accident, I’ve spent every day in pain, and now, since beginning sessions with Joel, I’ve started to feel more normal, again...as normal as a disabled Veteran can feel, at least. Thank You, Joel☺️

  • Over all great experience.

    Asked all the right questions for a first session and really got a good read on my body and what it needed. I will definitely be a regular.

  • Very thoughtful.

    I've been getting massage for two decades and Joel was the first one to give instant helped from my pain. He is thorough and always followed up with care at home for relief as well. Highly recommend him!

  • One of the best massages I’ve ever had!

    Joel listens and does his thing accordingly. Good , no great massage.

  • I would recommend him. I had a headache from hell and he took it away. Great bedside manner. Great atmosphere. Great experience.

    By far one of the best massage's I've received.

I have severe narrowing between the vertebra in my neck. The only way to correct this condition is to have surgery. The pain in my neck and down my arm is severe at times. I have not been able to lay down because the pain quickly becomes bad. I have been sleeping in a chair for over two months. On 3 March, I went to The Muscle Technician for help in relaxing because when I am tensed the pain gets worse. I went there not expecting much, but ended up being amazed. Joel had me laying on my belly which caused me pain, but within minutes he was able to relieve me of most the pain. That was the first time I had been in a horizontal position since 2 January. It was unbelievable. There was no pain when I left. However, it wasn't lasting. All it took was to get my mail out of my post office box, and I was in pain again. But I didn't expect it to be a miracle cure after only one session. It is going take a many sessions, and I am confident I will see an improvement after each. I did sleep better that night and the next day my pain was minimal. Joel is a professional who has a real concern for his clients. I have no hesitancy in recommending The Muscle Technician. Go see Joel. He will help you.
