Mind & Body Works
5546 Pilgrim Dr, Indianapolis, IN 46254
Both Stephanie and Ray are state licensed as massage therapists.
I am recently retired and still in excellent health with near perfect mobility. I contribute a huge part of this to my massage therapists! Instead of taking pain meds - if I have an excel use injury or most any ailment - I see Ray and Stephanie! They have helped manage injuries to my shoulders, knees, hips and neck - WITHOUT the need for drugs! I see them weekly for the past 15 years - most of that time I was working in a high pressure career and my weekly massage helped me eliminate the stress and stay healthy - no colds or flu in that entire period! I cannot explain HOW they do it - but I know what they do keeps me healthy!! I swear by them! Mind & Body Works - WORKS!!!
I was having severe neck pain and remembered that a friend of mine had recommended Mind and Body Works to me. I called and was able to get in the same day. Stephanie took time before the massage to talk to me about my issues and my needs. She told me she could help with my plantar fascitis. I was very excited to hear that! I had never thought about massage for that. The massage was just what I needed for my neck. She even spent time talking with me afterwards to tell me what she had found and how she could help me. I really appreciated all of the personal attention and genuine desire to help me feel better. I will definitely go back and tell my friends to go, too!
I have 2 jobs that make me susceptible to back and neck problems. I spend a majority of my week days at a computer. On the weekends I play guitar and sing in a local rock band. The pressure from my guitar strap coupled with my poor sitting and standing posture developed a knot in my left levator scapula ( shoulder blade) that caused me a great deal of discomfort. The muscles in that area were always flexed and I could not relax them. This stress spread along the nerve line up to my neck and down my back.
After spending just 2 months with both Stephanie and Ray from Mind and Body Works, the issue has disappeared. We discovered that the cause of the issue was not only where I was feeling the most pain, but in other interconnected problem areas in my arms and other parts of my back. By working on these areas , and teaching me a few key stretches, Stephanie and Ray have eliminated the pain from my back and greatly improved my posture as well!
They did a great job of identifying my problem area and working it out. I was thinking of selling my Mini-marathon bib 2 weeks prior to the race but instead, Bigler's got me taken care of in 3 visits and I was able to complete the race and set a PR for my half-marathon time. Incredibly inexpensive, relaxing atmosphere and knowledgable professions.
I've known Biglers since September 2003 when I consulted them for a plantar fascitis "flare". Their concern for the client's well being is clearly displayed from the beginning. They offer aggressive "stretching" therapy as well as massages that are less vigorous and always offer helpful techniques on how to continue the work at home through stretching exercises. Biglers are personable and knowledgeable massage therapists whom I highly recommend.
We recently met Stephanie when she came to our home to give us massages and also to give me instruction on massaging my dog. She was the ultimate professional and spent a great amount of time with us. My husband & I were very pleased with our massages and would love to have one every week :-) The relaxation of a massage is even greater when the therapist will come to your home. No worries about driving afterwards - just melt into the bathtub. What a treat that everyone should afford for themselves. We felt very comfortable having Stephanie in our home and enjoyed the opportunity to meet her. We look forward to another visit.
I have been seeing Stephanie for about 8 years and can honestly say that she is the best massage therapist I have ever encountered. Good prices, relaxing atmosphere, professional, warm and genuine! She cares deeply about wellness, social responsibility, and the environment. I am lucky to have her as my massage therapist and try to see her every chance I get :)
Stephanie has given me a couple of massages this past year. She is always very welcoming and the massages are wonderful. I even gave my husband to be a massage before the wedding and he was very impressed!!!! Very relaxing, best price around, and I love they are in my neighborhood. I would highly recommend going to them.
I had the pleasure of having a massage by Stephanie and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my first time there and I have already called to schedule my next appointment. Totally relaxing and very comfortable setting. I was left feeling as though I could drift off to sleep.....
I would encourage any and everyone to give them a try. You will not be disappointed!
I have been a repeat client of Stephanie's for the last 15 months. I tend to wait until I am in pain before giving her a call but she always does her best to fit me in as quickly as possible. She listens to what is going on with me each time and knows what to do to relieve the pain. She's great when I just want a relaxing massage as well. I have also met Ray and would be fine with having him for my massage if Stephanie were not available. I highly recommend Bigler's Mind and Body Works.
I had my massage by Stephanie and it was amazing. It was the first time that I have gotten a massage. She told me what she was doing before hand and was very informative. Overall, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience and I will sure be going back for another one!
It's been 10 years since I made the time and money to get monthly massages. But since finding Stephanie, all that has changed. Working with Mind & Body Works is a priority now. I make the time and money to get my monthly dose of healing, inspiration and relaxation. I travel and run a lot. Two activities that can take their toll. However, I'm pain-free now, thanks to M&BW.
Ray Bigler has helped me through some very tough times. A few years ago I suffered a back injury and required surgery. Ray helped me manage my pain from that experience to help me minimize the need for pain killers and medicines that I did not want to take. He is very knowledgable and knows exactly what to do every time. Ray and Stephanie Bigler are masters at what they do!
