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.

  • 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  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!

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 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  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.

  • 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  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.
