Bodywork Reviews

  • Heather

    As a bodyworker, Joseph Kleman is as accomplished as he is kind and encouraging. He listens carefully and then does a thorough evaluation of the body. He teaches as he works, so that one leaves, not only feeling better, but with an understanding of the problem and a few targeted exercises for home practice. He has worked with me on lifelong patterns of collapsed posture and back pain. Over a six-month period, my posture is significantly more upright, the extensors in my upper back are working, and I continue to make progress every week in pain reduction and expanded capacity to move with ease.

    I have been seeing Joe as a client for many years now. I find that he is more than just a massage therapist. A body work specialist is a more appropriate title. He is able to think and test his way through any number of ailments and, in the end, help improve pain. I have seen him over the years for neck pain, knee pain, gluteal pain, back pain, and have never been disappointed. He can usually figure out the problem within a few visits and get me back to doing the activities I love to do quickly.

    If you have pain, this is the guy to see! I’ve suffered over four years with nerve pain in my leg and foot that I was told it was due to several knee surgeries, and that I would have to live with it for the rest of my life. He was able to lessen my pain immensely, and I am able to enjoy life so much more! He always explains everything that he is doing and why he is doing it, and it makes sense! He is someone who truly cares about your well being! I am so very thankful for everything he has done and will continue to see him in hopes that he can continue to lessen the pain and possibly even make it disappear!

    Joe is a true master of his craft, and you can feel the dedication and expertise of his decade of experience in helping people move and feel better in everything that he does. He is a rare combination of compassion, insightful intuition, and extensive knowledge. Highly recommend his neural movement therapies to anyone: whether you’re facing chronic pain, recovering from injuries like I was, or simply don’t feel at home in your body anymore. These methods are way ahead of their time, truly the future of bodywork and wellness.

  • Jeremy Lewis

    Wow. Yes. This is the best place I have ever gone regarding rehab from injury or future-proofing injury. Joe is intelligent, forward-thinking, and professional. He is constantly refining and learning new information to further understand his practice. Over the years I have been seeing him I have only felt better about having sessions with him or incorporating his teachings in to my own movement practices. I would recommend him to any person – from fitness, to “9-to-5” worker, athlete, young, old, etc – he is able to work and help you feel better about being a mobile human!

Bodywork Therapy FAQs

Bodywork therapy is a variation from massage therapy focusing more on the biomechanics aspects of the human body. These sessions are really focused around assessment and treatment for ailments such as sciatica, low back pain, frozen shoulder, and other acute injuries.

Typically in a bodywork therapy session there is no draping, you will remain fully clothed. We suggest wearing or bringing loose fitting clothing such as shorts and a tee shirt. For women, it’s a good idea to where a sports bra for better skin access.
