George has been helping me work through some shoulder pain. I walk out of there each week able to turn my neck completely to both sides again. We're making progress!
George is a rare find. He puts so much of himself into the work he does. You can feel the difference. His technique is special and very healing. He does an amazing job of gradually working into the muscle. Therefore, unlike so many other massages it is painless and comfortable. I felt so revitalized after his therapy. I cannot wait for my next appointment.
This is *not* just a massage for the physical body.. It's a massage for the mind, body, emotions & spirit. My affect went from weepy to joyful within an hour of George's technique, which involves deeply intelligent physical manipulation as well client education, emotional expression, and therapeutic breathing. I had been having periodic difficulty breathing and wasn't sure if it was primarily due to allergies, chronic muscle contraction, or anxiety. The massage really freed my upper body and breath, and the physical effects of the first session were lasting. I experienced deeper breathing after only one session and didn't see breathing issues again for several days. The conversation part of the technique helps to free stagnant trauma & emotions. As a yoga practitioner, I felt clearing in my fifth chakra and an increased awareness & ability to speak my authentic truth over the next few days. George has an impeccable sensitivity to receive the messages of the body he is working with. He creates a very loving and safe space. I never once had to tell him to pull back or do anything differently; he was deeply listening to what my body was telling him, going deep but not too deep so as to cause damage. He has a good sense of how to meet the client where he/ she is at. Completely brilliant, I wouldn't go to anyone else in Minneapolis!
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!
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!
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.
Excellent job! I went in for pain in my neck and back and walked out with no pain! George does great work.
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.
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....
I had a series of sessions with George more than ten years ago. His technique is excellent. I was really benefited.
