Wow! Real relief from stress. I knew I needed a massage that is why I called Michael. He seemed to be the highly trained and qualified to handle whatever I needed to relieve the stress that I had been going through. I notice how relaxed I felt right away. His massage techniques were just what seemed to do it for me. I am looking forward to having him work with me again.

The massage session started out with me feeling relaxed and comfortable. I have been going through a lot of physical challenges. Michael made me feel much better about my ability to recover. During the session I could feel stress leaving my body. His hands are amazing. I resolved some tensions I did not even know I had, and I left smiling and looking forward to my next massage session. Thanks Michael!

I have been seeing Michael for several years now and I am a large man. I was concerned when I first met him that he would not be able to handle my lower back. During the several sessions I have been seeing him, I noticed how my back feels better longer and my shoulders feel more at ease. I will keep going back to Michael Because I have noticed the change in my ability to stand and sit better. He is always professional and I feel he knows just what to do for me each massage session we have together. Thanks so much to a caring massage therapist for knowing just how to help improve my condition!

After finding Michael Manion's website, I decided to make an appointment. I am so glad that I did! He is professional and understanding. He asked me briefly, about my medical history, and about any concerns or problem areas, that needed addressing, prior to my massage. The massage was amazing, and I left feeling relaxed and de-stressed. I highly recommend a visit with Michael.

I’ve had chronic back pain for decades. As we were traveling for about six weeks through the South West states we spent a week in the Tempe Arizona area. I had Michael come to our hotel for a massage as I can’t drive longer than about 1 1/2 to 2 hours without stopping for a break. Having never had a massage before I didn’t know what to expect but I now know I should have had Michaels hands do their wonders many years ago. I was able to finish our complete trip without that constant lower back and leg pain. And it was immediate. Not sure what he did but I will definitely recommend him to anyone. He not only relaxed my back but my mind also. It was soothing and it almost put me to sleep. His prices are also more reasonable than most guys. So I’ll be back and I advise anyone else with back problems to call for an appointment.

Michael … .

Need to tell you – you are the BEST! I felt so good the two after this massage and have not felt this way EVER from a massage. I shared with you how I hated having massages, but after this experience with you, I am a believer. Please consider me a regular customer until I leave for points south. Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!

Found Michael to be professional, highly skilled in massage techniques, and easy to talk to. He used different pressures that I found stimulating and relaxing at the same time. The soreness that I had in my shoulders disappeared. I treated myself to the four handed massage and was very impressed. Michael and Paul coordinated their exceptional skills together beautifully on me. An experience that I highly recommend. These two men are perfection in their craft.

Michael's knowledge of massage techniques and his skills made my session with him exceptional. He knew what amounts of pressure to use and varied these throughout the massage. He had an innate sense of what I needed. I treated myself to a 4 hand massage this time. Michael and Paul worked together coordinating their movements beautifully! Left feeling more energized than ever. These guys are perfection.

A great massage from a very knowledgeable professional and personable guy. He made you feel very at ease throughout the massage. I will be back.

Have received bodywork from Michael a number of times. He is amazing, and shows his number of years of experience, in his manner and technique.
