I recently decided to go to Art because my neck and shoulders were extremely tight and would make cracking/popping sounds when I moved them. I had been to physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and I never felt as if there were any major improvements – just temporary relief. Art was the first to inform me that I actually had what’s called “snapping scapula”. After just two sessions, I feel an extremely noticeable difference. I finally have more ease of movement and less cracking than I’ve had in over a year. He uses a very unique and individualized technique that I have not experienced or seen before. He also gave me specific exercises to do to help speed up the process. I highly recommend him!
Art is a miracle worker! I went to see him for a number of different reasons, ranging from back, neck and sciatica pain to TMJ (jaw/face) pain. In a matter of one session, Art was able to release so much pain that I had been living with for years that the next morning I didn’t know what else to do but cry from joy, my body was not use to feeling so free of tension and pain. Not only does Art know exactly what he is doing from a professional standpoint, the genuine dedicated he gives to his practice is apparent from the moment you walk in the door. The experience is truly a work of Art!
I met Art at a summer BBQ 5 years ago. I saw him from a distance and I could feel his awesome energy. We chatted and exchanged cards. I am a massage therapist, a personal trainer and a yoga instructor. So I am always looking for ways to heal myself. I was preparing for an arduous Kettle Bell fitness test, and after six months of nonstop training my body was a mess. ‘Specially my left side. I was living with constant shoulder, neck and hip pain. I called Art and booked a session. I really didn’t know what to expect so I showed up with an open heart. The technique is amazing! In one session I felt a big difference. But Roma was not built in a day, so I booked a few more. The pain is gone my range of motion is back to normal. If you live with pain, from doing too much or from an injury give Art a try. I tell you is not a massage. You don’t even take your clothes off. What it is, is a life changing experience. Thank you Art for sharing your gift. Blessing and Health to you my friend.
After one session of Spiral Techniques neuromuscular therapy with Art, I felt an exceptional release of pain and tension. In addition, I gained back great range of motion in my neck and shoulders. It works! Highly recommended.
I went to see Art for the first time a week ago. I had been dealing with TMJ pain and muscle tension in my jaw, ears, eyes, head, neck and shoulders for over 5 years. I had visited numerous chiropractors and TMJ doctors and none of them could fully relieve the pain that I was feeling. In one visit, Art was able to relieve the pain and tension that I was feeling. I woke up the next day feeling tension and pain free for the first time in a long time. I would 100% recommend Art to anybody who is dealing with muscle tension and pain anywhere in their body. Art is truly a miracle worker!
This is the real deal. If you have tension, tightness, or pain, chronic or acute, go and see Art Jaffe.
Art will heal you. After a session you will feel like a different person. You may even discover that the actual source of your tension is much different than what you thought.
This is completely different than traditional PT. Art masters knowledge of the human body, and will work deep into your soft tissues. He will also give you practical tips that help you help yourself, such as dietary recommendations.
Art is simply one of the most gifted holistic massage therapists I’ve encountered anywhere. His spiral technique of softening, lengthening, and loosening the fascia relieved pain and tension and helped me regain a much greater range of motion in a single visit. He is incredibly skilled in working the deepest levels of muscular and fascial tissue and is so intentional in helping the body relearn its own wisdom and suppleness. Because his level of competence is so high and the technique he uses so rare, I think he’s a simply a master. He needs to consider opening a school to teach this method!

I have been seeing Art over a number of years and he has addressed a number of painful challenges beginning with neuropathy in my feet in 2004. Sessions with Art provide relief when traditional medicine has only offered drugs to treat symptoms or possible surgical approaches. As exhausting as a session can be for the amount of physical work performed is extensive, I have never felt better than when I leave his office. In addition to the neuropathy, Art has used his technique to relieve extensive lower back pain and stiffness as well as shoulder and rotater cuff area stiffness and swelling.
Homework assignments of various exercises have proved invaluable in allowing me to overcome out of balance stance and the type of secondary stiffness and pain resulting from overcompensating for various changes in my gate and posture due to to neoropathy, hip wear and ankle deterioration.
Art goes DEEP! I’m a working musician with a chronically bad shoulder and he helped me in a way no other doctor or healer has been able to. He got in there, got results and kindly took the time to show me stretches and exercises to keep my positive momentum going.
Art has such a welcoming way about him, both strong and gentle, that he instantly put me at ease. During our session, he gave me an in-depth descriptions of his techniques, my issues and their possible roots, and the legacy of his teachers and students.
I’ve been to physical therapy, massage parlors, yoga classes – you name it. Art is the first guy to actually CHANGE my shoulder, not just relieve the pain for a moment. For that, I am eternally grateful! Thanks Art!

In my field, restorative treatments are one of the most paramount components to having a successful career. I worked with many different practitioners and body workers and Arthur Jaffe is one of the finest and most talented. His intuitive, in depth knowledge of the human body and easy-going personality makes him an instrumental piece on the road to recovery. I can personally attest to his specific knowledge and expertise in healing. In the short while that I have had the privilege of working with Arthur, I have seen long held physical and emotional tension melt away. During each session I can (literally) feel my body clock being turn back as my muscles relax, aches disappear, and youthful vigor return.
I have personally consulted with Arthur and plan to continue working closely with him for the remainder of my career as a professional basketball player. I would recommend him to my family members as well as any player in the NBA or other professional sporting organizations in the United States. He truly is a uniquely qualified individual in the realm of healing.
