I booked a 2hr full body deep tissue massage(heavenly!). My right arm/shoulder/neck area are having pain and numbness, requiring more than one visit. I will return for a 45 minute massage targeting my shoulder/neck area. I know it takes more than one visit. I have had this very same issue in the past and I know Jacki can fix it. She truly is a muscle whisperer!

Went in with a knee injury from weightlifting that was pretty bad and hurt all day long. Walked out of there with no pain and a better knowledge of my own body! Jacki is great.

Jackie is a muscular and body expert. I swear she knows more about my pain than I do. I highly reccomend her to all people with chronic pain or injury as well as those who feel like they cant find medical solutions. Jackie is purely amazing.

I cannot speak highly enough about Holden Hands Massage in Pawcatuck, CT. For several years, I have suffered with pain in my lower back due to slight scoliosis, hips due to arthritis, and myofascial pain in my neck and shoulders. I have been to physical therapy for these ailments on many occasions. Though it brought some relief, it was limited to the one area the script written by my rheumatologist specified. As a result, the relief did not last. I realized this was not going to change until I could find a way to treat all areas simultaneously. The answer was message therapy. I began working with Jacqueline at Holden Hands. I always leave feeling relief in all areas that were causing me discomfort. I never feel sore following a message. Additionally, I am finding that my ailments return less, and recoup more readily when they do. Give yourself the relief you deserve. Call Holden Hands Message!

I had a great experience with Jacqueline. I got a sports massage and Jacqueline did an amazing job. She was very thorough and explained everything she was doing throughout the massage. She made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone! Can’t wait to go back.
