Testimonials

“When I started treatments with you last year, I suffered from sciatic pain at a level that prohibited me from standing more than about five minutes or walking further than around sixty yards. My condition was post-surgical, after extensive work on my lower back that, according to my MRIs, resulted in the movement of the problem from one spot to another.

Now I walk for an hour every weekday morning at a fast pace, with no pain. I bike on Saturdays and can stand for as long as I want. My hobby, pre-surgery was hiking. I’m happy to say that, after a two year suspension, I have a hike planned for November.

Thanks for your massage work and advice on exercise, stretching, the inversion table and much more. You got me back on my feet again.”

Tracy Fixes Broken People

Sports Massage Professional Tracy Alan Jones knows what it’s like to experience the crushing weight of severe and debilitating chronic pain. He struggled with a serious back injury while in undergraduate pre-medicine training at the University of Illinois. This challenge required almost three years to resolve. He sought help from doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists prior to finally finding a successful outcome via hands-on massage therapy treatment. This personal victory over the pain and feelings of despair and hopelessness occurred early in Tracy's college career and it influenced his decision to pursue a career in social work as well as massage therapy. Tracy became a product of his experiences and they molded him into a caring professional with a receptive, yet critical mind. He now walks a life path where he can enjoy what he does. This path is rich because he can employ his feelings of empathy, but yet educate and empower individuals to help themselves. In addition, Tracy continues to work at mastering the art of being a good and open-minded skeptic.
