Testimonials

Our favorite testimonials are the ones patients see when they observe differences in their posture, range of motion, and reduction of pain.  Our favorite ranters are patients who tell their family, friends, and co-workers who have problems we might be able to help them with and those people come see us.  Indeed, people really appreciate receiving word-of-mouth referrals about our clinic and we appreciate all patients do for us in that regard.  Next favorite is hearing from them in writing, and that’s what this page is dedicated to – their words verbatim.

Testimonials listed below are unedited except where personal information was inadvertently included.  However, we also recognize patients may wish to review Manchester-Bedford Myoskeletal online elsewhere.  That’s great! We’re listed with Google, HealthgradesWellness.com, Angie’s List, and other places on the web and you are encouraged to review us.  We do ask that if you plan to write a negative review, please let us try to resolve your complaint in private first.

Thank you!

* I’ve had back pain since I was a young boy. I have been to countless chiropractors over the years and each visit would only bring temporary relief (a couple days at best).

Desperate to find an alternative, I began reading up on Myoskeletal massage therapy. Intrigued, I Googled this type of massage therapy in the Manchester area and found this practice in Bedford. You must first book an initial assessment session in order to get fully evaluated. A comprehensive strategy can then be developed to pin point the problem area/s so that the massage treatments implemented can have lasting effects. This session alone is well worth it as you will learn how your body compensates for certain movements that you may not have otherwise noticed or been aware of.

Self scheduling is by far the best thing I have experienced with making any type of appointment. I can schedule appointments as I see fit and have full visibility as to what appointments he has available. No more long phone calls having a receptionist listing what appointments are available. Need to change an appointment? No problem. Just a few clicks and you can adjust appointments as to what better fits your schedule.

This has been well worth my time and money as I have experienced long lasting, positive effects from utilizing this type of treatment! Joel is very experienced, extremely knowledgable on the human anatomy and knows how to identify and treat the issue/s that may plague someone like yourself.

* I attribute my rapid progress to Joel’s comprehensive knowledge, keen problem-solving abilities, and excellent communication skills. He listened carefully to my history and concerns, educated me about my condition, and formulated a treatment plan that addressed my goals very successfully. Joel consistently demonstrates a genuine concern for his client’s comfort and progress. His desire to help people with his skills is evident both in conversation and by his pursuit of specialized training.

* He explains things pretty thoroughly. My doctor had me get an mri done on my neck to check for problems. I got it done, but doctor didn’t see anything, so he sent me to physical therapy. It didn’t get any better. When I went here, the massage therapist asked me to bring my mri and radiology report so he could see what was going on. He asked a ton of questions before looking at the pictures and report, then he explained what the report said. I’m glad he took the time to tell me.

* I went with a specific area that needed attention to relieve a complicated spasm. Joel is professional, knowledgeable, and I am so pleased with the results. It’s easy to make appointments with the on line appointment feature and Joel responds quickly to emails. I was comfortable and confident in his care right from the beginning and extremely pleased with the process and outcome of my treatment by Joel. He was open to my concerns and put me at ease about providing feedback. Spasms are gone too!
– Otter, Concord, NH

* Joel was very professional and knowledgeable. He focused on my areas of tension, as well as finding areas I didn’t even know were tense. The massage was very relaxing and I would recommend Joel to others looking to relieve pain and stress.

* Thank you for working with me these past several months. When you started working on me, we didn’t know what was causing me so much pain. But you treated me as if you knew all along and made my living with fibromyalsia so much easier. I’ll miss our sessions when you move.
