“I have had sessions with Art Jaffe for various bodily issues and pains. I have to say that the results have been absolutely stupendous – much more than I expected or even needed. Wherever my pain was, he was able to figure out really creative ways of accessing it – and through the use of methods not traditionally used in massage – his forearms, his elbows, even his feet – he assuaged my dis-ease, altogether removed pain, and left me with a sense of lightness and freedom of movement that I have not felt for many years – maybe even not felt since I was a child. I felt nurtured, and profoundly supported – both literally – in helping me to feel comfortable to lean against him as he was performing his magic on me – but I also felt nurtured and supported metaphorically . I actually cried from the relief and care that I felt. He explained to me that his work is not just about the body – but is psychophysical – and that sometimes deep feelings and memories are stimulated during the therapy as they are accessed and released. I fairly floated out of the office after our first session and left with a sense of “all is right in the world”.
This man must have a terrible dilemma in terms of staying in business because his results were so rapid that I did not find it necessary to go for follow-up therapies. He gave me some homework assignments – breathing and stretching exercises that have made all my running and yoga be more effortless than ever. But, I have decided to continue seeing him nevertheless – not out of necessity but out of desire – the work with Art Jaffe just FEELS TOO GOOD so that not seeing him is a bad option.”
