“Brian Whitehead is the Best Possible Massage Therapist for Anyone, Regardless of Age or Sex”
“To whom it concerns:
I write enthusiastically to recommend Brian Whitehead as a massage therapist. Brian has been trained in all aspects of massage therapy, and has special expertise in dealing with sports injuries.
I am a 57 year-old attorney/writer who is under constant stress and pressure at work. In my spare time I compound the problems work creates for my body, because I am addicted to high-impact competitive sports, particularly basketball, tennis and long-distance running. Consequently, I have had six different surgeries performed on torn and worn-out tendons, as well as four other surgeries to repair broken bones.
As a result of these injuries, and because my work requires a lot of travel, I have encountered over the past 20 years many surgeons, physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors and massage therapists all around the world. Indeed, I have received massage therapy from dozens of massage therapists trained in such far-flung places as California, New York, Michigan, Jamaica, the United Kingdom and even Australia — and I can attest without reservation that none of them can even hold a candle to Brian Whitehead.
What makes Brian unique among massage therapists is the specialized training he has received, which allows him to identify the root cause of a particular injury or painful area of the body. Many massage therapists have learned good techniques for relaxing sore muscles; but Brian is the only massage therapist I’ve encountered who is smart enough to discover that when I complain of (for example) a sore lower back, the real problem is a hip out of alignment or an over-tight glute muscle, rather than just a sore lower back.
Brian Whitehead is also as strong, if not stronger, than any therapist I have ever met — but he never overdoes it, because he is extremely sensitive in reading his clients’ differing pain thresholds and then adjusting the pressure he uses accordingly. For this reason, my wife and I — former high school tennis coaches — have unhesitatingly referred female high school tennis players to Brian, because we know we can rely upon Brian to treat them in a completely appropriate manner.
Indeed, I have also recommended Brian to my primary physicians and surgeons, my chiropractor, and my many physical therapists in Michigan. All have told me later that when they sent other patients and clients of theirs to Brian, they uniformly received glowing reports back from their patients/clients. My wife and I even recommended Brian to my extremely frail 95 year-old father-in-law, who was himself a former physician, and he was delighted with the expert and sensitive care he received from Brian Whitehead.
In short, Brian Whitehead is the best possible massage therapist for anyone, regardless of age or sex. He is certified in a wide variety of techniques, including the use of hot stones and other relatively new therapies. He is highly knowledgeable about the human body, and very experienced in treatment. Best of all, he is a deeply compassionate person who genuinely cares about the well-being of each of his clients, and he is both sensitive enough and smart enough to adjust his treatment to the specific needs of each client.”
