REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Spa services

Completely restored my range of motion in both shoulders in a 30 minute session!!

Andrew was very skilled, the benefit of his work was immediate and thorough. I have already recommended him to anyone I care about.

I really liked how my concerns and questions where addressed.
by David on Jul 01
I have chronic lower back pain, and had right rotator-cuff repair, so I went with a sport massage and wanted Andrew to target these areas. He did a great job, I tend to baby my right arm due to the shoulder, but after the massage, I definitely felt relief and a little increase to my range of motion. He knew how to manipulate the arm and joint. Even my chiropractor hasn't been able to do that. I will be returning.

The building was very quiet and relaxing. Andrew focused on the spots that were causing me pain. Great experience!

Andrew’s therapeutic massages have made such a difference for me. He listens carefully to any concerns and bases his treatment on my input. Flexible with scheduling and highly professional. I highly recommend Much Kneaded Massage

The massage was amazing! Helped relieve my tensions. Included some aromatherapy since he heard me sniffling from allergies. Very professional, and very talented! Will be returning!

Andrew was clearly skilled and experienced. I have persistent shoulder pain, and he was able to quickly and accurately find the cause and administer treatment.
