Relief at last!

★★★★★
5 5 1
I have finally found relief from chronic pain thanks to Joe Danna. He focuses on the trouble areas, and provides the means to continue self-therapy between sessions. Two caveats - 1) This is not light touch, spa-like massage. It's deep and intense, a real work out for sore muscles. 2) If you don't intend to participate in the therapy by following Joe's advice, don't bother. I respect Joe's integrity and would highly recommend him to anyone who is seriously interested in healing.

I consider Joe part of my 'Team'

I am an athlete and have been training for my second Ironman and hopefully will earn a spot at the Kona World Championships. This is tough stuff on the body, but with proper stretching and massage therapy to keep things from tightening up, the body stays happy. The following is a note I sent to Joe following one of my visits: Pretty much sums it up. HE WORKS! 'Thought you should know. I have had the best results already from today's work. I appreciate the time you take to get the work done. You are stand-alone as a massage therapist. Bodies don't respond because the hour is over, and as an athlete that spends countless hours trying to be the best I can be, having you on my team to keep me going is much appreciated!

Joe Danna Listened Intently

The pain clinic, physical therapy, neurosurgeon, MRI's, X-rays, muscle relaxers, narcotic pain meds, chiropractors, and other massage therapists...nothing helped. I happened upon his website and was immediately enthralled with the Neuro-Muscular aspect and Joe's approach. I made an appointment, I was apprehensive, but still hopeful.

One appointment changed my life.

It wasn't a "feel good" massage, as I had in the past, leaving with my chronic pain still intact. This was a 2 hour firm trigger point neuro-muscular massage, something I had never experienced. I have been pain-free for a week, it's been a week since the massage. I couldn't sleep laying down for years, my quality of life was dimenishing, the chronic pain had worn me down. The night of the massage, I slept laying down, I couldn't before because I couldn't move my head to the right or left.

I sit here today in awe of being pain-free, and I hope that people who are in chronic pain read my review and they seek out Joe Danna. To me...it's a miracle and I hope other people can experience this pain-free miracle.

My name is Robin, and I'm pain-free!!!!

I Finally Found Relief

I have experienced many types of bodywork over the past twenty years, and teach some of it, so am very sensitive to the energy of the person touching me. I am so happy to have found Joe for massage, who is skilled in many techniques.

His Treatments Have Lasting Power

Joe Danna is a rare combination of intuition and in-depth knowledge. He is a wonderful listener and has a balance of serious intent and good nature. I especially like that he takes notes and refers to them before each treatment. Each session is different but builds on what the last session initiated. Moreover, his treatments have lasting power. PS Joe, thanks for such good care yesterday, I am very grateful. Hope this makes it to your website, which is very pleasant. see you soon.

Looking For Real Pain Relief

Don't waste your money looking for a better massage! I have had massages from Hawaii to London and Toronto to Costa Rica and Joe is absolutely the best if you are looking for real pain relief. He knows anatomy and movement and his willingness to educate me on the details of every one of my problem areas and how to take care of myself to reduce pain recurrence is the kind of stuff you usually only get from physical therapists! I genuinely can't say enough good about this practice if you really need help and can appreciate quality stretching and muscle work, it is your loss if you don't at least give him a try.

I Got the Help I needed

Joe is amazing! I had been to several different types of treatment for my neck/arm and hand with no results. I was in extreme pain for so long and could not make a fist with my hand. I was sent to a ortho with the suggestion it was carpal tunnel, it was not. Finally I was able to get down to see Joe, and with diligent work, and moving right along with knowing exactly what he thought was the problem he was able to fix my problem. He worked for 2 plus hrs, which I was also surprised that he was willing to continue his work until I got relief. He knows what he is doing, he is full of knowledge and I would recommend anyone who is not sure where to go for relief to go see Joe Danna! it is worth the trip.

Flexible and Free

Living with Spastic Cerebral Palsy for 69 years, has meant tight, stiff muscles and often a feeling of heaviness and fatigue in my body. \r\nNow that I have regular massages with Joe, I feel much more flexible and free in my movements. When Joe finds painful trigger points, I know that the result will be a release of the tension and the pain. Joe educates me as to the work of the particular muscle and what is needed for release. He is also very attentive and alert to the degree of pain I might be feeling and does not push. Thanks to my twice a month sessions with Joe my body is truly much more flexible and Free in movement. Thank you Joe!!

As or More Effective than Physical Therapy

I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve been seeing Joe for several years to release the muscle tension that builds up on my body from strength and endurance conditioning needed to train for the 4 - 5 hour endurance events I race in. Up until this year, it was simplly preventative maintenance as I have been relatively injury free. Unfortunately, I am currently suffering from an 8 week long rotator cuff injury and a prolonged 14 month Achilles tendon issue that I have largely ignored until it stopped me from training completely. I hadn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t seen Joe for a few months as my training cycles are less intense during the winter, but decided I needed relief for my a shoulder that has become almost unusable. Joe was able to get me in the same day I called him. After spending an hour talking with Joe and reviewing exercises to recover from both injuries and then another two hours releasing the numerous trigger points I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve accumulated throughout my body I have full range of motion of the shoulder and was able to complete a full round of physical therapy the next day without pain. Joe\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s knowledge rivals that of any competent physical therapists and when combined with his hands on ability to work and manipulate the muscles the results are truly amazing. The biggest dis-service I can do myself is to miss my monthly sessions with Joe. He work really needs to be a regular part of my training routine. Thanks brother.

Try Him, You\\\'ll Like Him!

Joe is an exceptional expert in his field. Right from my first appt I felt totally comfortable being there and could tell this is a man who loves what he does - helping people feeling well. He took a thorough history and listened to me. He educated me on what he was doing for my treatment plan and why - great problem solver. He gave me exercises to do specifically for my problems. I find him to be very focused on my all around well being. The best part is that I felt marked improvement with his advanced bodywork. I\\\\\\\'m a 65 yr old female so if you think you\\\\\\\'ll feel \\\\\\\"funny\\\\\\\" about going to a male massage therapist, all I can say is try him. You wear/or don\\\\\\\'t wear whatever you\\\\\\\'re comfortable with so don\\\\\\\'t worry about that. He is so professional - I highly recommend him!

So lucky to have found Joe

I have been suffering with incredible tension headaches every day for the past 3 weeks. My doctor suggested trying to get a massage to relieve some of the stress I was carrying in my neck and shoulders. I called around and had no idea how lucky I got when I happened upon Joe! He immediately fit me in. He was so knowledgeable and informative. He taught me how to help prevent the muscle strain in the future, and took extra time really listening to my concerns and pain symptoms. He also was incredibly talented at what he did. After leaving his office I had relief, 100% pain free, from the blinding migraines I had been suffering from. I can't say enough about how intense his treatment was. It was much more than a massage. I've had many massages in the past and although I leave feeling relaxed, I have never left feeling such relief. It's only been a couple of hours and I have already called two people and told them they HAVE to go see Joe. He is a miracle worker! Thank you, Joe.

A genuine healer..Mind, Body & Soul!

I have been battling back pain for over 25 years off and on. It all started with a roller skating accident. I landed on my hip and hurt my sacral iliac and that was my first time going to a chiropractor. He worked with me until I was up and around. Then throughout the years, I ended up in the ER a few times for acute low back pain which once again, a chiropractor and a few days of Advil would do the trick. I was good until four years ago when I ended back at the ER and then to an orthopedic that ordered a MRI. I have a disc that is herniated L4-L5 but once again with my chiropractor and Advil I got better. Then two months ago, the pain returned but this time it hung on despite seeing a chiropractor. This chiropractor was someone new because I had moved from CT to NH and driving the distance wasn’t logical. After a few visits, I wasn’t better so I called my CT chiropractor and asked him what he thought. His advice was to try some deep tissue massage as he felt the chiropractic treatments weren’t going to help if it hadn’t by now. So my search to find someone began. I didn’t know anyone in my area and that’s a scary feeling. I searched online and came across Atlantic Massage & Muscular Therapies. I read Joe’s reviews and I was comforted after reading that his clients review. Then I went to Joe’s home page and read the following… “A healing space is a place where knowledge is power. Skilled massage therapists know that people who are in pain or experiencing too much stress often stay that way due to a lack of education concerning their own body. Those around them may not understand what they are going through physiologically either and, sadly in some cases, don’t want to hear about it. This can lead the sufferer to dissociate from their pain and live silently with dysfunction to the point of developing chronic states. Anyone in this kind of situation not only needs validation but to be given hope, information and empowerment toward their own wellness”. After my second session with Joe, he called me at home and was concerned that he may not be able to fix my problem and that maybe I may need another MRI. In the back of my mind, I was thinking the same but I still wanted to give it a try. Besides the massage, Joe also showed me what stretches I could do too to help alleviate the pain. I think on the third visit, I left there and had almost an hour where I didn’t feel any pain. It did eventually return but that short time was wonderful. I think most people think when they hear the word “massage”, they don’t think of it as treating a medical disorder. In fact, most of my friends that have gone for massages have gone with the idea that it’s more of a spa special day verses clinical therapy. I was seen today at the ER and will be going to a specialist in a few days to get another MRI done. So once again, I believe Joe was tuned in to my needs. He was more concerned about me getting the help I need verses his own wallet. That alone says a lot! I still continue to see Joe for massage therapy as it helps my overall well being and it still does to a degree make a difference. It helps relax the muscles that have tightened up because of the pain. Had I not waited so long to get this kind of help, I am sure he would have been able to turn it around completely. I also enjoy discussing alternative health treatments with him. He’s intuitive, caring, professional and a man with integrity. Everything that he wrote on his home page is true. He validated my pain, led me in the right direction, shared his knowledge and most of all, he gave me hope. I wish there were more Joe’s in our world.

THE BEST EVER!!!!

I have chronic pain in many areas of my body and have gone to numerous massage therapists over the course of about 5 years, sometimes every week to ease my pain and my relief would last a day 2, at best. Joe listens to your issues and talks about your needs to help give you the proper help in relief. He genuinely cares, he is super good at relieving pain. There really isnt enough room here to list all the positive things about Joe Danna, his practice of massage, and the relief you get from his massages. I do not go anywhere else but to Joe. I finally found someone that actually cares, helps and is EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE. I wont waste my money on any other chain or private massage places any more. I found the right place. There isnt enough space to list the positive things about Joe and his miracle work and what a wonderful person he is. Just go!! You WILL NOT be disappointed I assure you. -Signed the massage guru Sandy McAndrews

After getting a whiplash type condition in my neck and shoulders I needed to find relief asap and found Joe's business searching for therapists nearby on-line. I booked a treatment same day and was amazed at the techniques Joe practices actually finding relief from the first visit. The four pack visit discount did the trick along with Joe's skills and his flexibility taking more time than the allotted hour. I would recommend anyone and everyone who is in need of relief and certainly know where I will go immediately when I have the need.
