“never thought of it, but I had many questions and Aric answered all of them and gave extensive explanations of the type of therapy that he was performing, and I do concur that he is beyond extremely knowledgeable.”
“Aric Friedman, LMT, is a master and should be considered for a Doctorate in this field, because he understands anatomy much better than my best professor in medical school, and he knows how to apply this knowledge to help people, to really help them.”
“do not have health insurance so i needed a place where the prices were reasonable and the work worthwhile.”
“was in terrible neck pain due to two herniated disks not to mention lower back pain, leg pain and a tremendous amount of stress, I made a last last last minute appt.”
Aric is the best!!.
Aric is unbelievable!!! He always hits the right spots. I never feel as good after a massage unless I go to Aric. And he runs on-time 99% of the time! He has made me a (very happy) regular customer!
Potential Customers: This business had some problems with a temporary massage therapist named Esther - just know that both Aric and Evelyn are AMAZING - you will be glad you made that appointment!!
Highly Recommend Arik. I have been going to Arik for more than a year now. I used to be 100 lbs. overweight and it's only because of his help that I was still able to walk free of pain. Now that I've been working out for a few months, I have been incredibly sore. Without Arik, I'd have to cut my workout regime in half. But after seeing him, I'm completely free of pain. He has helped a shoulder problem I've had for years. He tailors the massage treatment especially for me and is absolutely wonderful. He really cares and even helped me with some stomach problems that have been plaguing me for over a year. His knowledge not only of massage but all the inner workings of the body is incredible. I would highly recommend him.
Frozen shoulder has improved greatly..
I have seen Aric and Evelyn for a year now. I had frozen shoulder due to surgery, and it became so unbearable pain- wise that I could barely move my whole right side.
I was so emotionally drained, and physically, my muscles were deteriotating from lack of movement. A neighbor finally recommended me this place, and I'm really grateful for my healing. Normally, I am not one to write reviews, but Aric and Evelyn have been so crucial to getting my life back. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.Thank you so much you guys. Hope this message helps someone decide to go for a treatment, and better their health situation.

Forest HillsTheraphy. Forest Hills Theraphy. i have been a client of Forest Hills theraphy since 2000.I was recomended by my doctor Dr.Berkowitz who had performed two surgeries on my shoulders, one 12/99 and the other 1/200. I came to Aric because everywhere i went with the exception of Flowers Physicai Theraphy didnt work so after going back to my doctor he told me about Aric. I have been there ever since.Now my wife is a faithful client and we are recomending him to everyone that we know. This place is in Forest Hills,NY right next to the old tennis stadium located in a beautiful complex so there is no way possible that it has the appeareance of being abandon or shady, but dont take my word for it come and see for yourself and have a session i bet you will not go any place else. I have been here for eleven years and have no intention of going any place else. The atmosphere is one that is extremely relaxing and quite appropriate for what is being done for the mind, body and spirt.anyone who was an actual client of Forest Hills Theraphy will tell you that this place and Aric is the absolute best there is. Thats enough from me i just had another one of my weekly session with Aric and i am going to relax and enjoy the rest of my evening because results counts.
SATISFYING AND WELL PRICED!!!. I've been a client of Aric's for about 13 months now. I was recommended through a friend that swears by his therapy. I has been to acupuncture and a chiropractor for years after 2 horrible car accidents and I can honestly say that Aric's treatment helped. His deep tissue sessions can be painful @ first if you're new to it, but nothing has been able to relieve my lower back tension/stress like his treatment. The offices prices are reasonable and it is a very quaint location w/ a very personable session. I've grown to know Aric and he has a great sense of humor and tends to make you feel very comfortable and @ home. I'm not throwing my money away on a chiropractor that is going to just put pads on me and leave the room for 35 minutes and come back and crack my back. Aric actually works on the troubled areas and due to his treatment my use of muscle relaxers and pain killers has diminished to once or twice a week from the twice a day dosage I used to take. Thanks guys!!!
Thank goodness for Evelyn!!!!!!. Ok i'm not one to usually write reviews but i was absolutely pleased with Evelyn's massage! For months i've been having these random headaches and migranes. I have a history of migranes so i thought it was nothing out of the ordinary but it started to get worse. I started getting a lot of back aches too. I figured it was stress and well, i sure hoped so too! So i decided to go to Evelyn at Forrest Hills Massage since a friend that lives nearby heard about her and had referred her to me. I made the appointment and Evelyn was very kind and professional on the phone. She was prepared and waiting for me when i arrived and made me feel very comfortable. I explained what was wrong and she did such a great massage on me and explained what she was doing as she was doing it! I don't know much about the muscles in the body but it definately reassured me! The next day i felt great! i woke up fine and energized. Not to mention extatic that i was no longer in pain! Now i go for regular maintanence massages but i definately never felt those horrible headaches again. Thank You Evelyn so much!!
BEWARE, UNPROFESSIONAL AND SHADY!. So after reading all these (now apparently fake) reviews i got sucked in to making an appointment 3 weeks in advance to see Aric. I show up a little early cause usually theres paperwork to fill out, plus i wanted to warm up so im not all frozen getting on the massage table. I get there and the place is barren, no lights, no life, noone there, closed door. So i think maybe he is with another client and the receptionist stepped out or whatever. I wait 10 min...15 min nothing! I call the number, someone picks up and tells me im his first client he'll be there shortly, meanwhile when i called to schedule the appt i was told i couldnt get an earlier time slot cause he's "booked" = first lie and shady maketing scheme to make people think he's "that good" anyway, i wait another 20min! i call the number again, they tell me they let him know im waiting that that he'll be there soon, so im livid at this point and frozen cold from waiting outside. i ask her to cancel my appointment and not bill me casue this is extremely uncomforting and unprofessional for something like this to happen , she tells me "well theres othing i can help you with, you will be billed, cause he will be there" i hang up cause obviously i was getting messed with. its now past my appointment time, i get a message from Aric saying hes there and that the table is waiting for me, how RUDE!!! i have never experience this form of carelessness in a business before where a client is forced to sit outside while the therapist is late and their "offsite phone service operators" can offer no help so ur stranded and get billed for absolute aggravation! needless to say i could not possibly enjoy a massage after all that, i walked away and will make sure noone i know EVER goes there, shady and real dissapointing!
Wow, Web Marketing. How about Life? Pain?.
I really could care less about web marketing, when I am in pain! I want to hear about how much pain you were in before you seen Aric and How good you felt after your session! I have been treating with Aric for a lIttle over 9 yrs. NOT Just one time! I REALLY DOUBT Aric has the time to create false identities to save his practice. As you can see his schedule is booked which is due to the fact that he is an Excellent Massage Specialist. He is Not your ordinary Massage Therapist. When you treat with Aric it is for Deep Tissue Work!!! It's not a Spa. It is Therapeautic!!!!! NOT all the massage Therapist has the knowledge that Aric Has! When I am in pain, I want to go to someone who is giving of himself. He works hard to make sure that whatever pain my body is going through he will do his best to make it so that I can function again. Yes, he does traction we can re-align you structure, I enjoyed that.
The Last time I checked he is a Massage Therapist, NOT a Mind READER. If at anytime during your session it was uncomfortable (keeping in mind you scheduled a Deep Tissue Session) you should have asked him to lighten up. He never rushes anyone out. He Gives quality care. If I sound like I am attacking you. YES I AM>>> Don't schedule a session for DEEP TIssue if you cant handle it.
Hard to Believe/ A Real Review.
In my experience with web marketing, I think it's definitely fishy when you see this sort of "response" on the web about any business practice. When one person posts a negative review, they almost get attacked. That, to me, reeks of a business owner posting fake reviews under aliases.
Honest reviews are few and far between.
I have been to FHMT and I thought the service was ok. Aric himself, while an incredibly nice person who seems knowledgeable, isn't the best MT I have come across. He works too fast and rough. The massage is completely painful. I mean I understand some discomfort but this is ridiculous.
On top of that, he sometimes attempts to "crack" or "pop" joints for you even thought he is NOT a chiropractor. That last part I found to be very unprofessional.
I have never used Evelyn but hopefully she doesn't follow the same tactics as I listed above.
In terms of the location it is very nice and you are not disturbed during your session. And to answer the person who asks, you never call the people in there. It is always an answering service. They book and cancel appointments. You rarely get a call back from the people themselves.
My only real complaint about the location is that it is very small with one room. So on weekends, for example, good luck finding an appointment.
Re AnaBs Irrational Post.
I have been going to Forest Hills Massage Therapy for the past 4 months and Evelyn has worked on me the entire time. I find her to be extremely professional, punctual and skilled in her field. I am in the healthcare profession and I know quality work when I receive it.
I don't know what planet you're living on but if you're that quick and fickle to make a judgment and cut a service off because of one odd incident; it doesn't say much about your character and level of common sense. I could see if this happened more than once but things happen in life that are beyond one's control.
It sounds like you're stressed out. Maybe you should've taken Evelyn up on the offer and both of you would have benefitted and grown from the experience. Instead you come online and butcher someone's professional reputation with your irrational, uncompassionat and idiotic post.
If I were you, I would take this overdramatic post off, apologize for you inconsideration and inhumane behavior personally to Evelyn and reschedule. It sounds like you need a good massage from a good COMPASSIONATE therapist. If that's the case, I suggest you call the best therapist for the job, Evelyn.
