Dr. Tom Messinger is amazing. My husband hadn't seen a medical professional for all of the years we had been together (10!). He was convinced he was dying for all of these years and was afraid he'd loose control of his medical care and decisions if he saw a conventional doctor. I finally convinced him that he desperately needed some health care and that naturopathy was less invasive and would leave him more in control of his situation. We went to see Dr. Tom. While my husband does have a serious medical condition that requires some lifestyle changes, he is not dying. But more about Dr. Tom Messinger! He was gentle and positive with my husband. While some gave opinions of ""you might be dying"", Dr. Tom gave positive encouragement with words like, ""let's see what's going on and then make proactive steps to solve the problem."" My husband came away with hope, believing his physician held a positive outcome for him in his mind and heart. Having that kind of hope is 50% of the cure. Thank you, Dr. Tom.
I went to see Tom because I was experiencing some low back pain and fatigue. Immediately upon meeting him I felt at ease. We talked about my condition and he explained the basics of Shiatsu.
The massage was two hours of pure bliss. I became totally relaxed and enjoyed every moment.
Afterwards, I felt like a different person. I felt light and limber; calm and centered. My back pain was gone and I felt like my energy battery was recharged.
I highly, highly recommend seeing Dr. Messenger for Shiatsu massage. You will be very glad you did.
I don't have any health issues but I can highly recommend Dr. Tom's shiatsu! I felt like a new person after a treatment from him-both physically and mentally! I have been a skeptic when it comes to naturopathic medicine but am now convinced that it is definitely an option if I ever do need medical attention. In the meanwhile, I will be going to see Dr. Messinger for shiatsu as soon as I can get an appointment!

I went to see Dr. Messenger for a shiatsu recently. It was my first experience with this kind of massage and he offered an amazing introduction to the form. I requested the ""long form"" which, besides being a longer treatment, also included some deep stretching. I thought I'd be averse to having someone else stretch me, but his communication was excellent and ensured that I was never uncomfortable. Unlike other forms of massage that I've received, I found his shiatsu to be invigorating as well as relaxing. I had more energy, my body moved with greater ease and even my chronic low back pain resolved for a while. This should become part of everyone's regular wellness routine.
