TESTIMONIALS

imageI believe the best testimonials come directly from the people I've helped. Here are some of the thoughts my clients have shared with me:

 

 

"Madeline, I can't remember when my back felt this good, and my shoulders look lower as well. The cupping you did was terrific". Pamela NYC

"I go to Madeline for top of the line bodywork. She is par excellence extraordinaire - the gold standard." Eleanor NYC

 "To speak of Madeline Michaels as a "massage therapist" is like calling Tiger Woods a duffer, or Picasso a Sunday painter. Actually, the difference is even more extreme because even the average golfer goes on a golf course, and even a beginner painter smears some paint on the canvas, whereas the average massage therapist couldn't even pretend to Madeleine's skills. A gifted healer, she takes time to figure out what's wrong, listening, asking probative questions and making careful observations of how you move an affected part. She works on injured areas in ways that are highly skilled, sensible, and healing--much as a physical therapist might. Madeline understands body mechanics and communicates well so that you understand what's not functioning correctly and why not. Perhaps most importantly, she teaches you excercises-- protective stretches and strengthing moves--that enable you to participate in your own health. She is the "goto" person for anyone in the tri-state area in need of bodywork short of medical intervention."  Don Friedman, Author

"Madeline Michaels has been a Godsend to me. I have arthritis and after her therapeutic massages, I am able to function again. She has majic hands!  Also, she is very caring and provides Nutritionals that are incredibly helpful. I am very forturnate to have found her. THANK YOU MADELINE!!" Susie Kransz 


“Madeline's profound love of life and desire to learn and expand with consciousness reflects in her work. She is a true guiding light to others.”  Esta Libero

"Madeline i wanted to thank you....You are the one of the main people who have really turned things around in a positive direction for me this year - you got me walking again with my pelvic fracture so I think of you very positively and very appreciatively." Carole NYC
 
"Thank You Madeline for Everything you have done for me. Your Commitment, Patience, and Care."
With Love ~ Jim Fazio
"In this day and age its very rare to fine a person who is as nice and helpful as you are. Best of everything!"  Katherine Knight

"Madeline, If I haven't thanked you before, I will now and continue to appreciate you gracing my life with your presence. There aren't enuff genuine people and once you meet them, and they embrace you as is, there's nothing else in the world like it."  K. Shands

"Madeline: I want you to know how deeply grateful I am to have you in my life! The time and energy, and genuine care and concern you gave me did not go unnoticed. You are a shining star in my life, and will always hold a special place in my heart for you." Jay Ciniglio, Personal Trainer

Thank you
for the beautiful lesson, the wonderful exchange.You are a gifted body worker, Madeline on many levels -- good at explaining, at doing, open to receiving and of a harmonious consciousness. Also, I have not felt such a release of energy in a long time. My legs and hips are feel SO much better.  This skin rolling is one of the besT.
Pamela Markely LMT

"Madeline, I feel great reverance for you and your work, please consider my thoughts: I believe you bring the possibility of change on a cellular level through chemistry and emotion - in the same way prayer does with vibration. You have a great mission!! I am honored to witness it." Lisa Roselli


"Madeline knew just what my body and mind needed. Her massage and bodywork were incredibly effective at removing my back pain and bringing me to a sense of overall peace and comfort. She also gave me some excellent nutrition tips and new exercises to do.  She is absolutely terrific!" Jan Goldstoff, Publicist, New York City 

"Dear Madeline, I'd like to share with you my comments regarding my Ondamed biofeedback therapy experience.  I am pleased to relay to you that it's been 3 months since I started the Ondamed therapy with you and have never been happier.  I haven't had any abdominal pains and coupled with sensible diet and exercise, I feel more energetic and less bloated.  I have felt an inner glow and feel positive and generally optimistic on things.  My friends have asked me "what is it I'm doing" that makes me have that glow and energy.  I was so proud to let them know about Ondamed.  I firmly believe that by optimally utilizing the resources available, other than Western medicine, we should be able to overcome a few medical issues.   We can only hope, think positive and I know this helps in aiding one's general well being and health.
 
Ondamed is a great tool in helping me overcome my painful decision on hysterectomy.  I am not, and will not go through this because the results are encouraging.  My uterine fibroids have not grown and are stable based from my last appointment with my OB-GYN.  Since then, I haven't experienced abdominal pain or cramps.  I can only hope this lasts forever and I believe it will.  Thanks to the Ondamed and ongoing support from you, Madeline"!
 T. D. L New York


"I read an article in W Magazine about holistic and therapeutic massages but didn't know of a good practitioner in New York.  Coincidentally, the day after I read the article, I discovered that my colleague just had an appointment with Madeline and gave a rave review.  I immediately called to make an appointment.  Madeline is very warm and professional, and she understands the body so well.  My experience was completely relaxing and comforting.  I never had any masseuse take so much care in working on my body.  She used long sweeping motions and graduated pressure that released all of my stress and tension.  I felt light and empty afterward, in a spiritual way.  I really believe that therapeutic massages are necessary to maintain your body and I highly recommend Madeline Michaels to anyone seeking this type of healing."  Jessica Dang NYC

"Madeline, I just wanted to tell you...OH MY GOD.  I loved what this one treatment did for me and I can only imagine what a few more sessions will do. First of all, the day after our session, I was touching my skin, especially my thighs, and it felt like silk, almost like a baby's bottom.  Today, 2 days later, I feel slimmer like you said I would, and I swear to you, I don't see as much cellulite on the back of my thighs as before the treatment.  It's minimized a lot although of course there is a little still.  I can't explain it.  I feel like I inherited the legs of a 25 year old or time was rewinded to what my legs used to be.  I want to say thank you so much for everything.  I look forward to working more with you.  You have the greatest spirit and I loved the energy in your home.  You made me feel very welcome."  Namaste, Celia Naschimento

"Madeline, you gave me such a wonderful treatment. And I just want to thank you so much in such a heartfelt way, because you've really done wonders for my body. My body has never felt this good! I just think you are great, and I love your approach. I mean my body has not felt this good for eons and that was with regular massage for a number of years!” Elise Bornstein
"Skin deep massage with mild vibration and baguanfa suction cups on my back seemed to be perfect combination. I felt rejuvenated immediately as well as the following day. I can only imagine if this combination is done all over the body! Madeline I just wanted to say that you are a blessing in my life."
Faith 

"Madeline, our session was so great it was unreal. What an outer body experience.  Thank you for trusting in me to take me to the next level.  I cannot begin to tell you how good I feel.  I look forward to the next energetic event.
Thank you!"  Ernest Martinez, Kafka Construction New York
