Just FYI to people who don't think massage is health care: my health insurance pays a portion of my massage. It is, indeed, health care.

At $60+ an hour they sure charge like a health care provider.

Ha--I get your point, JCM, but how much do you think it would take to "buy" an hour of your doctor's time? An office visit (without insurance) that takes maybe 10 minutes will cost you a lot more than $60.00 and even some co-pays are higher than $60.00. My copay is $70.00. I pretty much think a dollar a minute is a bargain, and if you've every tried therapeutic massage you would think so, too. It's great. Helps a lot with back and neck pain.

Anywhere close with a "happy ending"?

A "happy ending" is hard to beat.

I couldn't find any real unbiased reviews of LMTs in the area, so I figured to throw one out there. If you are looking for deep tissue work (like me) and/or suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, there is a great therapist at New Paradigms Healthcare (Shannon Webb). My old massage therapist (Jerry Clark) was the best, but passed away last year and I spent several months seeking someone with similar abilities. I went to 4 other recommended therapists and also to Jones chiropractic (LMT training ground evidently) and was basically oiled and rubbed. Shannon is very intuitive and professional and really knows her stuff. If you know your massages and need more than just a feel good swedish type spa experience, give her a call, you'll be glad you did.

That sounds really good! I have lots of neck and back pain. Wasn't sure if this would help or not.

Thanks LL,
I went to Shannon based pretty much on your review and you were spot on! I compete about 4 full triathlons a year, and really needed someone who was trained and experienced in sports massage. I second your recommendation especially for any athletes out there as she is REALLY competent.

Yeah.....let's all just take drugs instead! Every drug you take (that MAY help your problem <or not>, will certainly cause other problems in your body ! It is a HUGE market, and they,(the pharmacies and the doctors) don't make all that money if they don't put you on drugs !!! So let's just take drugs for EVERYTHING! That is what this world is coming to. I refuse to take all that crap! And i am much healthier for it!

I would MUCH rather get a massage instead of taking medication, because there are NO side effects AND it will more than likely help whatever ails you !

what good is a massage if it doesn't come with a happy ending?
Isn't it standard procedure?
As a way to push all the bad energy out of you and relax you at the end
