I went to
Bodywork by John after they were recommended to me by some fellow
classmates in one of my workout classes after I strained my shoulder and
back. After an initial consultation, John went to work on my massage
and put a lot of focus on my back, shoulder and arms. He was great at
using the right amount of pressure, time and focus on each area. He also
spent some time explaining how the muscle groups and how they worked
together and gave great recommendations on how to relieve some pain
during/before/after massage. I've been back to him for additional
shoulder/neck pains, and I highly recommend the 90 minute massage,
because you get the full experience. (Believe me, after an hour, you
wish you would have gotten more time!)
His office is peaceful,
serene, and a nice private environment that is perfect for a massage. As
soon as you walk in, your senses are invigorated w/ the smell of
scented candles, and calming ambient music in the background.
Will definitely be going back time and time again!

I work out a lot
and John has been incredible in relieving the tenseness and soreness
from my muscles. I also work a desk job and have lots of upper back and
neck pain. I see John every six weeks and he has become part of my
health and fitness routine. Lots of folks think getting a massage is a
treat, but getting a massage with John is a necessity, especially if you
suffer from any type of muscle soreness.
John is professional and his office is very clean. You also cannot beat his rates for the services he offers!

I have a fairly
athletic body and John was able to analyze and tailor a perfect massage
for my muscle pain and flexibility issues. He incorporates traditional
methods with new techniques other therapists have yet to learn.
nice thing is John uses a massage cream that absorbs right into your
skin so when your massage is done you don't feel all slimy with oil and
it does not get on your clothes. Both my husband and I have had regular massages by John and highly recommend him!

Best massage I've
ever had! I've had too many broken bones to talk about and with broken
bones comes lots of scar tissue, pain and re-strengthening of muscles.
took pain away from my lower back, made my posture up straight , and
got all my knots out. He helped me learn what to do and not to do to
help me recover from all my injuries as well as helped me release stress
associated with work and not being able to fully function at my usual
I recommend that you go for 90 minutes your first
time and then down to 60 after that. I would recommend this place to
anyone and everyone! He'll tailor to exactly what your body needs and
help you heal from any of it!
CAN'T WAIT to be back out in VA again to get more massages!

John really creates the whole body spa experience in a great office
space in downtown Leesburg. You walk into the waiting area and it
already feels like you are in a spa. The best part of seeing John is
that no two massages are the same. He tailors each one to the person
and the problem areas you are having that day. He books you for an hour
and makes sure you get the entire hour, not 50 minutes. I HIGHLY
recommended the 90 minute massage. Once I got one I will never go back
to the 60 minute!!
had massages before where the therapist won't deviate from the script -- where
no matter how badly you need a little more time spent on a certain area, you
only get the prescribed amount -- no more, no less. John really listens to what
you ask him to do, and focuses where *you* want him to focus, not just where he
feels like focusing or where his routine directs him. I highly recommend

highly recommend John. The massage was great, and setting-up the appointment
was a breeze! He'll make you feel calm and relaxed, and depending on your
preference, he applies just the right amount of pressure. You'll already be
looking forward to your next session as soon as you walk out the door.

John knows how to get a mother-to-be to relax.
His magic hands are gentle and they safely released the tension in my lower
back and shoulders to alleviate pregnancy-induced sciatica. A pre-natal massage
by John isn't a luxury - it's a necessity!!

are a must for me every couple of weeks to keep me physically tuned up for my

As an active runner, John was able to pinpoint
my problem areas and release tension that I’ve been having. Not only did he relax my muscles, but it’s
been a great stress reliever! John is
different from the spa massages that I’ve been to because he can specifically
target my problem areas. He’s very
knowledgeable and personable to work with.

John's massage was
fantastic! I really appreciate that he took the time to focus on the areas that
bothered me and really seemed to be more concerned with my satisfaction of the
massage than anything else.
- Heather R.
wish I had gone to see John way before my ulnar nerve
decompression surgery as the few minutes he spent working on it really
alleviated my symptoms.
– Kim E.
had never had a massage....but I had to see what the fuss was all about. John
made me feel extremely comfortable and I have returned for many massages
since my first one.

am a runner and find myself sore after races. John has helped me recover
faster. He is awesome!
As a working mother of
two, and fitness instructor, I know my share of stress, aches, and pains.
John has magic hands and really can focus in on where I am the most
knotted. I feel amazing after his massages! He is always professional
and makes you feel at ease.

As a fitness enthusiast, I
engage in multiple activities that strain the muscles of my body. Massage
is very important to me as it is one component in keeping myself healthy and
injury free. I am very picky when it comes to a massage therapist as I
need someone who knows and understands the trouble spots that us athletes have,
and who is capable of providing the deep tissue work I require. John
expertly meets both those requirements. I highly recommend John's
bodywork with two big thumbs up.
– Kristen D.
John’s technique and professional approach are outstanding. He takes the time
to ask if you have any areas you would like him to work on. He is very focused

John re-energizes my body and spirit!
hands are like magic. When he starts working on my body, I know by the
end I'll be ready for whatever life has to throw my way. For that hour - I'm in heaven.

John's hands are
