REVIEWS for my Fitness or Bodywork services

by Jennifer on Oct 13
Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable and offered an amazing and professional session. I look forward to returning for my next session.

I wish I could give more stars. This session was for my very active son who was experiencing random but constant aches (knees back, calves, etc). I learned more in that hour than I did in 4 years of high school science. Jon is patient, professional and beyond knowledgeable. He explained everything he was doing, and the reasons why had been feeling each and every pain. So many "aha has" moments. I learned more about the human body in an hour than I did in 4 years of high school. Not only does my kid phscyically feel better but mentally he validaded his ligitmate pains and gave me tremendous piece of mind.......I CANT WAIT for my appointment!

Jon was extremely professional. He took the time to explain in depth the what, why and how of the appointment using digital visual aids. I felt wonderful when I left. I have already booked my next visit!

I’ve been going to Jon for over 3 years and he has completely helped me on targeting areas of pain and tightness to new levels. My strength and mobility has improved and I trust that any physical issue I may have he can address!

My massage with John at Direct Effect was excellent all around. I was extremely impressed afterwards with the brief consultation and explanation of the problem areas that were causing my pain and discomfort. Look forward to my next appointment.

Jonathan is a skilled and knowledgeable professional! The way he instinctually targeted the key areas that needed the most release was impressive. By providing the physiological education afterwards, I was able to fully understand why I have the limitations in my shoulder right now. I highly recommend Jonathan to anyone suffering with muscle tightness and joint pain! Looking forward to my next treatment!

What a great experience for my first time getting a massage. Jon first discussed how the muscles work, with the aid of computerized pictures, then worked in my problem area and followed by a complete massage. It was exceptional!!

Don't hesitate to book an appointment with Jonathan. He has an innate ability to decipher the root cause of your issue and works to release the knots and tension, allowing for more freedom of movement.
