"I've utilized numerous massage therapists and can objectively state that Jay's experience far outweighs any previous encounter - with regards to neuromuscular therapy. His many years of correlating treatments within a major hospital alongside physicians, physical therapists, and exercise physiologists have afforded him a unique arsenal of soft-tissue rehabilitation techniques."
