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 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  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'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  I have suffered from continuous acute back pains, especially the upper back and shoulders. I have tried numerous massage techniques which at best offered short term relief in the form of loosening up, which did not last for long. By coincidence I was told about Mr. George Rodafino’s Functional Muscle Manipulation. And l started. Having completed 8 sessions, I can honestly say that my acute back pains, no longer bother me. l feel that my upper body has been completely loosened, as if an enormous weight has been taken off my shoulders and neck. My stance has completely changed, my back has straightened. I feel light as if I have acquired a new neck and a new spine. The specific technique that is used for this therapy, is smooth harmonious movements and wherever needed they are more intense, their hands seem to go deeper without inflicting pain. instead the sensation is one of relaxation and comforting relief. Thank you George!

  • 5 star review  I'm always skeptical when working with a new massage therapist, but George quickly won me over. George is highly skilled and knows just how to find the right spot. His physical manipulation techniques are very effective at relieving tension. The unique thing thing about George's work is his use of breathing for emotional release, which has been healing for me. I'm having far fewer tension headaches after just a couple sessions. Thanks, Geeorge!

  • 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  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!!!!
