Are you seeing a chiropractor? If not, consider whether you are extremely healthy and extremely happy. For me that means, I have no symptoms, and taking no medications, and I am fully engaged in my life’s goal, and have lots of meaningful and successful relationships.
Network chiropractic is head and shoulders above the rest, depending on the doctor. My chiropractor, Jennifer Lees, of Sudbury, MA, is a leader in network chiropractic, and trained in many other techniques as well. She has a thriving practice, a wonderful massage therapist and fabulous assistant, and a very comfortable office. She is also extremely generous and compassionate. Check her out

Maya is a wonderful Russian practitioner who has been doing massage in Brookline for 12 yrs.
She does 1/2 or 1 hour traditional Swedish massage but also does hot stone massage. She has a very nice touch and will do whatever strength you like. What attracted me also are her prices which are VERY reasonable. She is doing some discounting for first visits….charging $65 for initial visit (usually $80). If you continue with her she will reduce that fee.
I brought my own organic massage oil but she said she has some nice oils as well.
I found it completely relaxing and was totally satisfied. (Betsy Bernazzani)
42 West Street, Quincy, MA
Heikki is a sixth generation Finnish bodyworker, says he’s been doing this since 8 years old (now in 50′s). His card says “Finnish Active Resistance Massage Master.” My experience with him was not a beautiful relaxing massage, but a very efficient and thorough therapeutic massage to address restrictions, adhesions, distortions that he finds very quickly with his hands. I was sore when I left, but ultimately I felt better. He has a very pleasant, bubbly personality. Heikki explained to me what he was finding in my body. Many times during the session he asked me to do some simple slow movements as he was working with his hands, to facilitate releases. He works out of his house in Quincy. Charges $100 for an hour. It is clear to me that Heikki is a massage master, has amazing skill to make a difference with his clients’ bodies. Some of his work reminds me of Rolfing, but he certainly follows his own protocol, uses many techniques that are unusual. (Rick Frank)
