When I first went to Ann, I was a bit nervous because I had never had a therapeutic massage. My tension seemed to melt instantaneously after going into her office, where the music was quietly filling the background and her voice was very calming. She asked me a number of questions to understand why I was coming in, some medical history and what areas of my body I thought needed extra attention. I told her I preferred a heavy touch for the massage, to help work out any knots that I had -to which she has been most successful in relieving! I still get massages from Ann, over five years after the first one. Most have been to relieve minor aches and pains (neuro-muscular massage), but I now also see her to move some of the extra fluid in my ankle due to a fracture and the somewhat severe numbness and tingling in my thumb and first two fingers (running up to my elbow) I was experiencing is SOOOOO much better, even after the first time she worked the area (that I hardly feel "the pins and needles" any more). By the time she completes her massage, I am so relaxed that I am ready to take "a long winter's nap.") Ann is extremely professional in every way - she is very caring and is active in her professional organization, the American Massage Therapists Association. Her desire to learn is never-ending; she attends a number of conferences and classes each year to keep herself as knowledgeable as possible. I would definitely recommend Ann to anyone looking for a massage therapist, without reservation. Ann's appointment schedule can be booked ahead for some time, but isn't that a great testament to her abilities?

My active and athletic 16 year old daughter has suffered from anxiety and stomach pain on and off over the years. The b...eginning of this school year, the pain was so severe, it sent us to the ER a couple of times, kept her home from school for 40 days over 6 months, and ceased most activity. After 2 endoscopies, 6 prescriptions and the FODMAP diet, her pain level was still a "4" at best. With western medicine exhausted, her pediatrician suggested acupuncture. Thank, God! Western medicine worked to try to cure my daughter for 7 months with minimal success, weekly doctor and hospital visits, and over $3000 in out of pocket co-pays PLUS medications. Within 6 weeks, 12 acupuncture treatments, and 1/3rd the out of pocket costs, Dr. Yang has helped my daughter get back to all of her activities, eating normally, weaning from (if not eradicating) most medications and down to a "0-1" pain level! Having had no previous experience or knowledge of acupuncture, we were skeptical but desperate. I'm so grateful that we were led to Dr. Yang and her kind and competent staff! The treatments are not only therapeutic, effective, and money and time wise, but relaxing. My daughter usually naps during the treatment and is relaxed for some time afterwards. We will opt for acupuncture over western medicine moving forward.
I travel alot for my job. I'm usually in town several times a month. I was looking for someone to help reduce pain and relax me. So I called Back & Body Works Massage and set up an appointment. I was cheerfully greeted by Shawna, the Licensed Masseuse, and she showed me around a very professional and comfortable office suite.Everything is clean, inviting, and quiet. I filled out a simple new client form, and then had THE BEST MASSAGE EVER! I especially liked the way Shawna took time to really work out the knots in areas that bothered me so much. She is very skilled, very easy to feel comfortable with. Every time I'm back in Columbus, I ALWAYS go here. You should too!
I have known Shelly for 5 years or more and have an hour long massage scheduled every other week with her. She is an outstanding massage therapist who listens intently to find out what my current aches and pains are. Then she goes to work on that specific area first. She inquires how something feels, and if that area needs more attention, then that is what she does. When she finishes with me, I'm usually so relaxed that I'm asleep on the massage table. I wake up and feel totally refreshed, relaxed, and free of any aches, pains or tension. She is a thorough professional and very caring. I highly recommend Shelly to anyone interested in a great massage.
I've had several massages from Anne. She is a real pro and understands what a body needs and is really great with all of my sensitivities. I'm a massage therapist's nightmare- and she really listens. Not only does she hit all the therapeutic buttons, but she's always getting certified in the latest techniques. She just did a bamboo fusion massage the other day and WOW, what a treat! It's soooo much better than hot stone for the hot massage, rounded edges just feel better and do more! Plus, she's the only masseuse in Central Ohio that can do this type thus far. Pretty cool. Her new office is in Clintonville and really cute. Overall I highly recommend her!!
Linda did an AMAZING job for me. I sit all day at work and do computer work, and it's surprising how much tension gets built up. So, went out there, talked for a few about what I was experiencing and she went right to work. Very nice space for the massage, good atmosphere, and very clean and nice. My wife has fibro and Linda says that the Lymphatic service she does is great for that, so I'm hoping to get my wife in there. Thought I'd share my experience! It can be hard to find a really good LMT that can get some work done on you - Linda can do it! C. K.
We needed a massage therapist for a large group event and he was very willing to work with us. He came out to the site and gave each person a massage. After the massage he spent time telling each person what they could do to further relieve the stress in their muscles and tips on how to get rid of toxins. The massage was amazing and he is a great person to work with. I highly recommend using this massage therapist!
This is a wonderful office. Dr. Joe is kind. He listens to me and he has helped me more than I can say. I am on medicare and it takes me more time to do things than some. He is always patient and understanding. My back pain is almost gone completely and my knees have never felt better. I was able to work in my garden this summer without any problems bending. Thank you to this wonderful doctor for all the help.
Anne offers a variety of massage techniques, but I *love* the Bamboo massage. I trust Anne, so without knowing what to expect, I scheduled an appointment for this new-to-me modality. I was transformed and convinced that I no longer needed anything else :-) Anne is skilled at a variety of techniques. She is professional, has years of experience and has a lovely space in Clintonville.
Dr. Zhang is great! I had problems with my neck and shoulder due to working long hours in front of the computer. I tried different remedies and no is working. I start getting acupuncture late last year with Dr. Zhang and it made a big difference. Now I don't feel pinch and pain after a day of work as I used to and I gain flexibility too. I highly recommend Dr. Zhang.
