Testimonials for Back to Health Muscular Therapy

Back to Health is a muscle and massage therapy studio in Dracut. Call 978-957-9560 for your massage treatment for injuries, relaxation, flexibility. 

"I suffer from multiple pain conditions and have been coming to Back to Health for over a year. Patti is the most empathetic massage therapist who has worked with me. She has a unique approach where she looks at how certain trigger points or issues with one part of the body can impact things many others may not know were related. Because of this, Patti isn't just working to relieve a symptom, but actively trying to keep the symptom from popping back up shortly after I leave.  She is able to point out areas of my back that I didn't realize were problems and after a treatment I feel significantly better than when I walked in."

Bethany

"Hi Patti,

Just sending you out this quick note to let you know how pleased i am with your services.I've been going to see you for a couple of years now approx once a month, for several different issues. In my case probably related to my work. Being the owner of a construction company i need to stay in complete health and fitness. And when i have an achy muscle or joint no matter what it is or where it is you seam to find a way to fix it, along with good advise for stretching, icing and what to do and what not to do.I've been to see you for issues from head to toe literally neck pain, lower back, shooting pain in the ribs, torn hamstring, shoulder pain, and foot pain.And i truelly believe in your major concern with hip correction. "if your hips crooked, your crooked, get fixed!"So, to make a long story short, THANK YOU!"

Aaron

"I work in front of a PC for several hours a day, and even though I try to take all the precautions to avoid discomfort and injury, I often "tweak" my neck and end up with tightness and pain all the way from my collarbone and shoulder blade up to my scalp behind my ear.  

Before I started seeing Patti, I would suffer with reduced mobility and pain in my neck for weeks at a time.  Patti is able to release the tight muscles in my neck and relieve the pain in a single session.  She targets the kinks and knots and works them out with just the right amount of pressure.  A complete, relaxing neck massage calms the muscles down and keeps them from tightening up again.

I have learned a lot from her about the way my muscles work, and how to keep healthy."
