I first visited Eugene when I was living in NJ. He is really a master in pain relief. He is the reason I started massage therapy and I fell as good as when I was young! He is the person I suggest my friends when they complain about most of any pain.
I was having trouble concentrating at work, and a friend recommended that I try a therapeutic massage. After my initial skeptical reaction, I found Eugene Wood and told him about my situation. The day after my session was remarkably productive. Eugene recommended four separate sessions, and I agreed to his program. The difference in my ability to concentrate and my improved sleep has changed my life. Therapeutic massage was the revolutionary approach to my health that I needed.
Eugene is amazingly caring. He has helped me regain most of the mobility I had lost due to arthritis in the hip and a severely broken ankle. He suggests stretches and exercises I can do at home to help me stay flexible. I have become a believer in the value of therapeutic massage and would recommend Eugene to anyone.

Recent developments include both intriguing innovations and clever combinations, which are now being practiced as a vibrant, living therapeutic tradition -- and it is happening right here in New York.

With so many different modalities available, keeping up with all of the new terminology can be somewhat confusing.
Eugene offers client education, which allows you to learn about the techniques being used if you wish. The fine art of combining Massage Therapist techniques with the clients' specific needs is comparable to the way a musician may draw from diverse theoretical backgrounds in order to improvise well.

Massage Therapy Treatments

When you make an appointment with Eugene, you can expect to see a professional specialist in the restoration of soft tissues. Eugene has a comprehensive background in multiple therapeutic traditions, which include the skillful manipulation of the connective tissue, or fascia, muscles and ligaments.

Remember, when he works to eliminate the restriction in the connective tissue, he is also encouraging all of the structures underneath -- the nerves, blood vessels, etc. -- to experience homeostasis and/or dynamic rest.

I first visited Eugene when I was living in NJ. He is really a master in pain relief. He is the reason I started massage therapy and I fell as good as when I was young! He is the person I suggest my friends when they complain about most of any pain.
I was having trouble concentrating at work, and a friend recommended that I try a therapeutic massage. After my initial skeptical reaction, I found Eugene Wood and told him about my situation. The day after my session was remarkably productive. Eugene recommended four separate sessions, and I agreed to his program. The difference in my ability to concentrate and my improved sleep has changed my life. Therapeutic massage was the revolutionary approach to my health that I needed.
Eugene is amazingly caring. He has helped me regain most of the mobility I had lost due to arthritis in the hip and a severely broken ankle. He suggests stretches and exercises I can do at home to help me stay flexible. I have become a believer in the value of therapeutic massage and would recommend Eugene to anyone.
Following the death of my spouse, my panic attacks became unmanageable. I was reading about different approaches for handling stressful events when I found a recommendation for Asian Massage. Since nothing else had addressed the situation, I visited Eugene Wood and shared my story. The first session was used to diagnose my body’s struggle with stress. In subsequent sessions, Eugene helped me release my fears and learn some coping techniques. Now, I have my life back.
From the first moment he started massaging me, I felt he knew he was doing. In the first minute of a 10 minute session, I felt like "this guy's good!" I couldn't get back to him for a session fast enough. He noticed tension in areas that the other massage therapists I've had have completely missed. His whole focus is on finding those spots, and he's completely diligent. I trust myself in his hands. In fact, I have some tender or ticklish areas, and his touch is so right that I neither felt pain or got the giggles.
I would recommend him (Eugene Wood) in a second! I am feeling fantastic as I have been suffering from lower back pain so long. After one session I can't believe how I am feeling. Looking forward getting back to my usual routine and so FORTUNATE to have met Eugene. So Professional and Caring as he knew exactly where the back issues existed I even informed him. Thank you as I am looking forward to the path of healing!
