The Functional Muscle Manipulation is a next generation Deep Tissue massage

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 breath with a deep, natural sigh of relief. That helps release more and will help you deal with the tensions of your 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  I found George through Groupon originally. I was pleasantly surprised by his efforts to actually fix the problems with by achey back, not just give a relaxing massage where the effects wear off as soon as I walked out the door. His use of pressure was perfect and I felt the results for days. He was able to really focus in on my problem areas and work them out better than I've ever before experienced. His unique technique is amazing!

  • 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!

  • 4 star review  I have been receiving therapeutic massages from George for a few months. He is skillful at "getting to the root of the problem" and has developed an effective method of having you engage by using a simple breathing technique which he will teach you (basically just taking a deep inhale and exhaling while he works out tight or tender spots.) You end up feeling relaxed AND get lasting results. I walked in to one session with a very sore shoulder and walked out nearly pain-free and movement has been improved ever since. He is a good and thoughtful listener too . Highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  I am one of the rare cases that my muscles are so stiff that no permanent solution can be found- thanks to G Rodafinos i managed to to sustain it at a level that i could function daily and live a normal life - no other therapist ever managed to do that I am grateful to Mr rodafinos. Not only he was my "therapist hero" when he was in Athens but he also left behind his student and thanks to the deep tissue method that he tought to Mrs Nelly i feel as i almost have him still near me Probably the best therapist ever walked on Greece Now USA has him - lucky USA....

  • 5 star review  George does an excellent job of correcting muscle issues that have been place for years. Many of the aches and pains that he has resolved for me were ones that I thought I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life.

  • 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  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!!!!

  • 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  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.
