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 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  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  George is truly amazing! Like so many others, I have been suffering with chronic back, neck and leg pain, and I have tried various massage therapists and chiropractors. They provided some relief, but George is the one who provided significant relief! After only one session with him I woke up the next morning without back or leg pain, and with renewed vitality! He found tightness in places I didn't even know existed. And I appreciated how he educated me about his technique. I am so happy I found George, and I will go back for treatments as much as possible!

  • 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  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  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  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.
