AMAZING deep tissue massage – I've had my fair share of deep tissue massages, and Nicole at Better Balance Massage is OUTSTANDING.
The setting is warm and relaxing, and she is really talented at relaxing your muscles and working your tense areas. She knows how to do an intensive deep tissue massage for people looking for that intensive treatment, and also has a gentler swedish technique for tender areas and people who like softer pressure.
all around, one of the best deep tissue massages of my life.
Thank you for the review, it is always nice to hear when people enjoy their massage!
2 Visits...Headaches GONE!! – So I decided to visit Nicole at Body Balance after months of suffering from pretty much constant headaches. I have always been one of those people who get frequent headaches, but lately, it has been almost daily. I've been to doctors, had all sorts of testing done, but nothing really came up.
One doctor suggested I try massage therapy, so I researched online and decided to try this place (plus I got a discount on my visit!). Nicole found multiple "trigger points" (she wrote it down so I could research it later on) which she though could be the cause of my headaches. Considering when she pressed on them, it pretty much recreated my headache, I figured she was on to something.
After an hour of work on my neck and upper back, I could already feel like I had more movement and felt some relief from the headache I came in with. I was a bit sore, but I expected that with deep tissue massage. I iced and stretched that night as Nicole suggested and i woke up feeling really good the next day!
I had already booked my second appointment (before I left so I got the discount on that visit too!) and after that session, which was similar to the first, I felt fabulous!
My headaches are gone. I can't believe it, but after reading more about trigger points, I can see what the problem was and why massage helped me so much. It only took the 2 visits to get rid of my headaches, but I do plan on scheduling regular treatments to keep my neck from getting too tight.
Seriously, I never thought massage would help so much. I thought it would be something I would do once to try, but that would be it. I encourage anyone and everyone to give massage a shot...and make sure you come here to do it!!!!!!!!
Best Massage in NYC – Having a job where I am standing for usually more then 8 hours a day, my back is constantly aching and my feet are always hurting. I have done physical therapy in the past, but hasn't really helped much. I decided to try massage therapy.
When I did my physical therapy in the past, they did a little massage, but only like 5 minutes. When I came to Body Balance, Nicole spent the whole hour working on my back, legs, glutes and also a few minutes on my feet.
The difference standing up was unbelievable! My back felt much looser and the achy feeling in my legs was gone. She showed my stretches to do to keep my back and legs loose and gave me advice on possible inserts for my shoes to alleviate my foot pain.
It has been a week since I saw Nicole, and I still feel great. I will be going back next week for a second visit next week as a follow up.
Great massage, great location, nice building, comfortable office...all around great experience.
Real massage that works! – Like many New Yorkers, I am at the point in my marathon training where aches and pains seem to be popping up daily. Enter Nicole at Body Balance Massage! I have been looking for a good sports, deep tissue massage for months now, and usually just leave relaxed...but not "fixed". Nicole really listened to my complaints, concerns and went straight to work on my problem areas...unlike others that will spend 30 minutes on the hands and feet and brush over my back and legs. I left feeling as though my muscles had been properly worked, a touch sore, (but hey...that's what happens when you get real bodywork done!) and pumped up to see how great my next runs were going to be! I am looking forward to my next appointment, and expect this to be a weekly thing for me now!
