Client Reviews

Welcome to my Client Reviews page!  I am delighted to share the experiences and kind words from those I've had the privilege to assist. Your support has been instrumental in shaping my journey, and I am deeply grateful for each and every one of you. With heartfelt appreciation,

"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 exercises-- protective stretches and strengthening moves--that enable you to participate in your own health. She is the "goto" person for anyone in the tristate area in need of bodywork short of medical intervention."

"Madeline, I feel great reverence 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."

"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.”
Sarah B.

“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 NY

"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
