What my clients say

Been a client of Mr. Wood for over 10 years now. He listens, then tailors his work based on what you have requested. With plenty of years as a professional massage therapist, and experience with working with athletes, people with chronic pain or injuries, he is the best therapist I have gone to, and would go to. Prices are very reasonable and you definitely get a full 60 minutes, not 50 minutes as you do at spas. I highly recommend Mr. Wood as a top notch massage therapist. Now that I am retired from the medical field, I have more time to take care of myself. I can really appreciate the quality of work that Mr. Wood provides.

 " John is one of the best massage therapists I have ever met.

 I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that is serious about massage."
R. Petitbon, Local Business Owner

Had an immediate impact on my chronic hip and lower back pain after just one 90 minute session. I still have a lot of work to do on my own (strengthening, stretching, foam roller, etc), but incorporating regular sessions with John for assisted stretching and massage accelerates the healing. 

Alex Anne Dietrich, USN

 When I was at my worst point with my back about 18 yrs ago I found John the massage magician. He brought my situation to a great place. Visiting Md from FL for my daughters college graduation and I am so glad I got in to see him. Thank you so much John for all you’ve done to keep me healthy and adjusted. Your the best!

      "One of the things that makes John a great massage therapist is that he listens to your concerns and he asks really great questions. He really tries to zero in on any problem areas with your body." 
J. Firmani

       " I enthusiastically recommend John Wood, and have already done so to friends and family. He knows more massage techniques than most massage therapists I have tried and readily adapts them to your particular circumstances to help your body feel worlds better." 
Rev. E. McLean   

       I've been receiving body work from Mr. Wood for several years now. He is a very experienced massage therapist who excels at deep tissue, sports massage. Ideal for someone who has a past injury or sports related problem. He offers assisted stretching as well. What I like is that he listens to your particular needs and then targets your concerns during the visit. I strongly recommend Mr. Wood as an expert and reputable massage therapist. . He gives a full 60 minutes of quality work (not 50 minutes as offered at some spas), and I always feel improved and stress free after a session. 

D. Hong, M.D.  ( Pediatrician )

     "John is more than a trained massage therapist -- he's a natural physical therapist. He has helped me manage back problems that were disabling before I found him. His therapy lets me stay active and not worry. He starts every session asking, "So what's up?," and I tell him what's aching or not moving right; he listens, he thinks, and then his hands do the rest, finding the trigger points and working them away. He's the guy you want for deep tissue therapy that heals the body and calms the soul."  
John  T.

       "John has been my therapist for a very long time. He has a mindful and intuitive way of addressing your needs and bringing your body into recovery mode. I am a therapist also, and I had an elbow problem, and in one visit, he got me back to work and feeling great. If he can help me, imagine what he can do for you.
If you have pain or chronic body issues, John is your guy." 


       "I know I can count on John to attend to my tight muscles for relief. His techniques target my problem areas quickly. I seek care for neck, lower back, and leg complaints, and any other area that might crop up, and report great success with his care. I would highly recommend his services for both relaxation and for pain relief."
Bonnie  R.

      "I have tried other massage therapists in Annapolis but none quite as knowledgeable or as thorough as John.  When my business has me working in the area I always call John to get the kinks and knots out that driving for long periods of time and using the computer cause. My question is why did I wait so long?"
