Cured my leg cramps!!!!

Full disclosure: I am David's sister. David has kept my sciatica in check through two pregnancies, after many other massage therapists and chiropractors failed. By the time I started having back trouble in my third pregnancy, David was in very demand and not always available. He recommended I see Shiho. Admittedly, I was skeptical.
Before our session, I was plagued by painful leg cramps that woke me up several times at night. It seemed every time I moved or changed position, a different muscle would cramp and I'd be immobile. After ONE SESSION with Shiho, they were gone!!!!! I had an uninterrupted nights sleep for the first time in a long while. Thank you Shiho!!!!

Very Impressed

I was very impressed by Shiho. She worked on the problem areas I noted and also was able to determine other trouble areas. I'm looking forward to working with her while training for the NYC marathon!

Shiho is like a revitalizing nutrient!

Because of my poor posture and constant desk work, I’ve had chronic abdominal and back discomfort for years. Shiho’s deep tissue approach is as if she’s having a long, relaxing conversation with my entire body.

I highly recommend Shiho with all my heart to anyone who is looking for a therapeutic holistic massage.

Great for Medical Massages too!

I was having trouble with my neck and shoulder, and my physical therapist suggested I get a massage as often as possible. Shiho was responsive to my concerns and aches, focusing not only on my problem areas, but also addressing other radiating problems on my arms, cranium, and jaw. I felt her holistic approach to my issues were quite beneficial, and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

HIGHLY recommended.

This was my first experience with a professional massage therapist, and Shiho was absolutely excellent. She quickly put me at ease after assessing the problem areas with my posture and where I carried my weight. After a very anxious morning, I felt like a completely different person with a completely different outlook after my experience at Bodyworks. HIGHLY recommended.

Shiho has been a miracle worker! I had foot surgery 2 years ago and have had many related aches and pains in my feet and legs ever since.

Surgery recovery

Shiho has done amazing work helping me recover from a major foot surgery last year. She's done wonders for my tight back, neck, and psoas. She even manages to make breaking up my scar tissue tolerable! With her help I'm returning to my pre-surgery self.

Always Satisfaction!

When I really need some body work, I always come back to Shiho. Knowing her over 10 years, she never disappointed me, but always amazes me with her new skills and knowledge. Her passion towards her work never ends, so her technique always improves. Absolutely Shiho is the one of the best massage therapists I know in the city!

Truly talented expert massage therapists.

These are truly talented expert massage therapists. I've been going to Shiho on almost a weekly schedule and my posture, body awareness and body comfort have improved significantly. My one session with David, the owner, when Shiho was unavailable, persuaded me that there are massage geniuses. This is a truly wonderful place.

Thorough assessment and targeted treatment

Shiho takes a thorough assessment and asks good questions to get the info she needs as to help her focus on the cause of the issues. The treatment is targeted but also general enough that I leave feeling an improvement immediately, as well as a lasting effect. I appreciate the intention and plan to heal and correct as opposed to other massage sessions which are nice, but seem to only focus on temporary and immediate soothing.
