Testimonials From Clients

I suffered from daily headaches caused by stress for years.  I could especially feel the tension in my neck and shoulders and the pain would wrap around my head to my temples and THROB.  I started getting massages with Steve and my muscles were so locked up and tight that it took awhile before he could encourage any flexibility in them at all.  It's been three years that I've been getting a monthly massage from Steve and my tension headaches are absolutely GONE!  I am so grateful for his patience and ongoing interest in my emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being.  Thank you Steve!

My experience with Recovery Massage has been rewarding and invigorating.  The massages Steve has given me helps me to have a sense of well being overall, creates better circulation throughout my body and emotions.  Steve is a compassionate therapist with the willingness to reach out to those in pain and has a healing touch and presence that he brings with him along with his commitment and knowledge to help others.

I have had a lot of massage from a lot of people.  Men, women, mechanical, actual humans ... even energy treatments.  I have had massages in the Bahamas, in Sudan, here, there. There is NO ONE like Steve. He's got impeccable credentials, he's strong, he's knowledgeable. But more than any of this, he has a HUGE heart, and whether he knows it or not it influences everything he does. He has spoiled me for everyone else, he's "da Bomb..."

I've been to many different massage therapists over the years, always hoping to find the "right" one.  My first visit with Steve told me my search had ended.  Without question Steve Nelson  gave the best full body massage I had ever experienced.  He has techniques to relieve neck discomfort I had never found with any other therapist.  Also, Steve provides a gentle, non-intimidating atmosphere that makes a woman feel  comfortable and at ease.   I highly recommend Steve Nelson to anyone looking for the perfect massage experience.

1.-  The best I ever had.
2.- Steve considers your needs & preferences for a complete massage experience. Enjoy! 
This is no cookie-cutter massage, but an individualized experience in a relaxing atmosphere. Try this once and you'll be back for an encore.

I can't believe how much better Steve made me feel in just one hour of treatment! Earlier in the week, I was in so much pain that I could barely do anything. I try and walk a few miles every night like my doctor recommended, but I was in so much pain a couple of days ago that I couldn't even walk more than a few blocks. Last night I was able to walk several miles with very little pain. What a difference!
His healing touch is the only thing that seems to make my pain disappear. Thank you Steve for giving me my life back ... I don't know what I would do if it weren't for you and your magic hands and big heart. He is a blessing and I am so lucky that I met someone like him who really cares about making me better. I don't know what I would do without him!
If I had the money, I would get a massage and / or cranial sacral treatment from him every day and I probably wouldn't even need to take pain medication. He is definitely the best and I hope that more people are able to experience his incredible talents. He has definitely made a difference in my life and I wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate him. Anyone who has the good fortune to have been treated by him is very lucky ... he is one of a kind!
Laura - Huntington Beach

I have been seeing Steve for massages for 3 plus years, not as often as I should. He has helped me with so much I can hardly list the ways. His skills with my neck and back go way beyond just being helpful, he seems to have true healing hands and energy. He has actually helped me almost eliminate my headaches that I used to suffer with almost daily. And just getting to talk with him has helped my marriage and my parenting. He seems to have a way of seeing all sides of any issue and coming up with another way of looking at it that is very positive and helpful. I feel like I get a massage from a nicer version of Dr Phil ha ha. I'm glad that he's opened his own office and I will continue to see him forever.
Christine - Newport Beach

I can't even begin to tell you how much better I felt when I left Steve's office, when I came there my head had ached until my stomach was really nauseous, and my whole body was beginning to be stiff.  When I left I felt like a new person, both physically and mentally.  Physically I felt ten years younger and full of energy; mentally, I felt like I had a fresh outlook.  There are really no words they can convey the level of thanks I feel!
Crystal

Just a quick note to say thank you for being you, I struggled to get in to see you today...then, upon leaving, I found myself wishing I had more time with you. Thank you for being a significant part of my healing and growth. I am truly blessed by your presence in my life.
I love you, Alyson

I wanted you to know that I have been searching for this word for along time I just didn't know that "EGO" was the word. It is so clear to me now and you were right I am a different person, itís like a light has gone on in me. As I sit here with tears streaming down I wanted to tell you how grateful I am for you and your wisdom and the time you spent with me and not judging me or trying to "fix" me. I am looking forward to our appointment on Monday when I will continue my journey. Thanks again for making such a difference in my life
See ya soon, Liz

Thank you so much for the great massage and wonderful cranial-sacral work. I feel much better physically and emotionally. The guided imagery was very powerful. I don't think that I verbalized to you that at the end of the session, I felt/saw a beam of light from the ceiling to my head! I deeply appreciate your skills and thoughtfulness. I am always grateful for you. I'll see you again in a few weeks
Take good care, Marge

Thank you so much Steve. I am so grateful to have met you too. Crystal told me along time ago that she just wandered into your place for a massage. She raved about you and so for the first time in my life i went to a man who does massage. It has been a quite a journey since then. The impact you have on my daily life is incredible. To feel good physically, well, it's just a wonderful gift and you contribute sooo much to that. Your kindness with me and your letting me know that i am special is a blessing in my life also. Hope your day is a good one too.
Jenn

Steve,
You have the most balanced commitment to your feminine side. I love it that you love women. I love it that women love you and feel your love for them. I am blessed to have you in my life, especially your massages.
