"If speaking my mind causes a problem, then the problem was there before I spoke it."

39 years of trial and error, I have finally found something I truly love to do.  I have always been an artist and now that artistic energy is focused on my massage.  I get so much joy when someone comes to me grumpy yet, leaves happy.  

I have been doing this for about 6 years now and still find it exciting to learn new techniques to better my service.

My first session with Chris was great! I'll definitely be back. Shoulder work is his specialty and he helped work out a knot that had been bothering me significantly. Thanks, Chris!

Chris has a wonderful combination of healing hands, the right amount of pressure, listens well to where you need work done, and lets you chat if you want, or be as quiet as you want. A great experience.

Chris's over all body massages are a delight as they keep you floating for weeks but his customized massages are absolutely amazing as they bring you back into alignment and feeling whole again. Very professional and courteous. Thank you, thank you, Chris for always for taking care of me. I appreciate your work ethic and enjoy seeing your business grow. Happy to be a life time client

Chris was kind to recommend a certain stretch that will help my legs but also help my lower back. As a mom of a toddler, my back and shoulders take a strain so this was a welcomed treat!

I have had a lot of massages over the years by different people and in different places, but Chris is by far the best masseuse. Every massage is personalized and Chris really cares about the health of each client. He can find knots and sore muscles I didn't even know I had. I highly recommend him and Absolute Body Kneads!

Chris does a remarkable job in assessing your massage needs and then gets to work. His skill in both assessment and then alleviating muscular aches is right on the mark. When I leave after a massage I feel like a new person. I highly recommend Chris for massage therapy; he is the best!

Chris knows what he is doing. He was great at ensuring that all the pressure points that needed attention were worked on. I am a runner and it is important that all the muscles that are constantly used receive the maximum attention that they can withstand. I will definitely be going back.

I have had many massages over the past 25 years but Chris's therapeutic approach had some unique aspects to it. His knowledge of the muscular system and anatomy is evident in his approach and he has the strength to get deep tissue results. I woke up early morning after feeling a bit sore, took a couple of Advil and went back to bed. I have felt GREAT all day yesterday and today. Professional manners, friendly, knowledgeable and sincerely interested in the health of his clients, Chris is definitely a true MT.

I purchased a 12 pack of 30 min massages to focus on some old sports injuries. I had my first focused session yesterday and I don't have the tension in my back and upper body that is normally there- which is an exciting first step- usually it comes back right away. I'm excited to see how massage therapy can help my healing process.

Chris is the best! I am working through some neck and hip aches and pains and Chris' skill and knowledge has made all the difference. Not only is he professional, but he always asks 'what did you bring me' when I arrive. I tell him what hurts and he works on those areas. I am four weeks in and am seeing great results.

I deal with a lot of chronic back and neck pain. I have had many massages. This is by far the best massage I have ever had. Chris really was able to get to many trigger points. I still have stiffness and pain but plan on continuing with Chris. I think in time he will be able to remedy my pain. Excellent, excellent!

I appreciate the quality of the massage. Chris is obviously very knowledgeable about the various trigger points to release tension and give a good deep muscle massage. He asks you the area you'd like him to concentrate on, but also provides a good overall body massage. I am pleased and have no problem recommending him.

This was my first massage ever and I glad it was Chris. He made me feel like I was in good hands from the beginning. Very very very professional in asking and answering questions. I had the 30 min focus focus session. I walked out of there straighter then when I walked in not to mention relaxed. I will be back.

After having back pain for several days, I decided to get a massage. I told Chris exactly where my pain was and how I couldn't even lay down without it hurting so much. After the massage and stretching, I walked out feeling a lot less pain and was able to lay down without cringing.

Chris is the best massage therapist I have ever visited, and I have tried a lot of them. I have been a weekly client for close to two years. He knows what it takes to fix what ails you, is attentive to your needs, and is always pleasant. You can't go wrong with seeing Chris.

I have been to many other massage studios and therapists before I went to Absolute Body Kneads, so I had a solid base to compare them to.This massage therapy studio is awesome and I am really glad that I found it. I can easily say that it was one of the best massages I've ever gotten. I've had several outstanding sessions and every time it's a great experience .My therapists is Chris Pastol .He is extremely professional and definitely very experienced. The studio is very clean and professionally designed. I highly recommend this place. These guys really know their stuff.
