The Functional Muscle Manipulation is...

A peaceful resolution

Instead of waging a war against the body’s defenses, the Functional Muscle Manipulation  negotiates with them. Thus the body allows the therapist to go deeper with almost no discomfort.

Breathe and let go

We teach you to breathe with a deep, natural sigh of relief. That helps release more and will help you deal with the tensions of your everyday life.

This body is yours

The FMM enhances your body-mind connection, giving you back control of those muscles even after you have kept them tight  for decades.

Well for years

Your symptoms will most likely go away after a few sessions. After a series of them, though, the positive results will stay and can last for years.

  • 5 star review  My sessions with George were the best thing that ever happened to my body. I had visited other therapists but nothing was ever like George's way! At the time I had so many issues to deal with, I felt unprepared to face them and didn't even have the will to do it. Some big and rapid changes in my life brought me to a state of panic! All my body was in pain. I dislike drugs and the doctors' way and George was the perfect answer for me. I felt that as my body was healing my entire self was healing too. I learned so many good things and I had a better way facing my life. I still remember walking away like I was flying! Yes, this is true! Like he had lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders. I am grateful to have met you, George, and thankful for your treatment. I wish you a great start where you are now and to help more people to recover.

  • 5 star review  George's treatment was definitely a bright point in my day. I've never laughed and cried during a massage in such a pleasant way. I think it was a massage for my mind as much as it was for my body. I would definitely recommend George's treatment for both the body and the spirit. If you need a good laugh, a good cry, or just a good massage go see George!

  • 5 star review  They aren't kidding with the "deep" part. I'm 2 sessions in and came out both times knowing things are different. The effects have lasted for days in the hopes it will last longer with more sessions. George is very willing to share the science behind what he does.

  • 5 star review  I have lived with back pain ever since I was involved in 2 car accidents (rollovers) in 1993. Since then, I have been in and out of physical therapy, chiropractic and massage, but nothing seemed to work. That is, until I met George. After my first session with George, I was pain free for 4 whole days. It was amazing. That is the first time in over 20 years that I felt that good. After each consecutive session, I feel better for longer periods of time. Another amazing thing has happened. I get taller. At first I thought it was a fluke, but it happens after every session with George. It is definitely not a coincidence. When I get in my car to leave, I have to adjust my rearview mirror upwards, because it is too low for me to see. One hour with George stretches my back out enough that it is noticeable, when I get in my car. Who would've known. Thank you George! Amazing work!

  • 5 star review  I originally found George randomly through a Groupon. After my first session I was beginning to wonder if our crossing paths wasn't so random. I have been dealing with some heavy emotions lately. George's calm and gentle demeanor was exactly what I needed. It was as if he could see through me and knew exactly what to say to make me feel better. Also, his use of Functional Muscle Manipulation and deep breathing techniques were successful in helping me let go of stress and pain. I highly recommend paying George a visit!

  • 5 star review  Back in 2008 Ι read one of George Rodafinos’ articles about the Functional Muscle Manipulation. He was discussing how physical traumas from an accident but also emotional tensions since childhood would be stored as memory in the muscles creating chronic contractions, acute pain and restricted mobility. The FMM with it’s deep, precise pressure and friction and with the deep, relieving breathing, helps in liberating this chronic muscle tension. All I read resonated with me. So I decided to study this technique. During the lessons I was receiving therapy and I was giving to others. I very well remember how ‘light’ my upper back felt after the first lesson. For 2-3 days after I kept feeling 'something happening’ in the whole length of my back, like it was ‘working’. After each lesson I felt the need to stretch and my whole back would ‘pop', especially the upper part, where I had my postural problem. My whole body gradually started feeling lighter, free and flexible. Others were noticing that my body was not ‘bent forward' anymore. A unique thing that happened to me after a lesson: While on the bus returning home, Ι found myself sobbing, but without crying, while at the same time I felt great emotionally. The FMM opened up my breathing, made it deeper and wider in my every day life. 'A straightening of the back may bring many changes in our being’. From the book 'The school for Gods' by Stefano Elio D' Anna

  • 5 star review  Really good technique!!! It works so deep in muscles that it enhances permanent treatment from chronic pains. I have tried so many treatments, they worked only temporarily! This is the best!!! Thank you George!!!!
