My Experience With Most Massage Therapists: I tell them the areas I'm having issues with, they give me a generic textbook fully-body massage with a little extra attention paid to those areas, and I leave feeling good but unlikely to return.
My Experience With NewLine Massage: I told Travis the areas I was having issues with, he crafted an amazing massage heavily targeting my problem issues, and I leave feeling great because I bought a discounted massage package and have two more amazing massages to look forward to.
I am so fortunate I found Travis at NewLine, a wonderful experience from the start and a REAL solution to my tense shoulders and neck. Highly recommend for those looking for a massage experience that is a must for a balanced self-care routine.
I have been through 4 rotator cuff surgeries and with Travis' knowledge and skills I have continued to see both pain relief and improvement in my motions which are allowing me to pursue activities that I wasn't sure I would be able to do again. Travis answers my questions and works extremely hard to help me improve.
I’ve been in two car accidents and for the past 10 years have been battling chronic back pain. After seeing Travis I can confidently say that I’m no longer in such great pain. Even other issues such as jaw pain due to teeth grinding has subsided. I enjoy seeing Travis because it’s treating my issues, not simply distracting me from them. I’m so much happier and healthy and in such a short period of time! Give it a shot, no chance you’ll be disappointed!
I am a professional dancer and teacher and recently I had quite a bit of pain in my shoulder. Travis took the time to listen to how I described it, the range of motion that was affected and determined fairly quickly what he thought the issue was. He was absolutely correct and after he worked on what he believed the culprit muscles to be, I had immediate relief - which I had not experienced in weeks. This happened to be a weekend for him in Chicago, so I was not able to have a follow up visit, but he sent me detailed information to take to my in-town massage therapist to make sure they knew what needed to be addressed. I actually didn’t even need them because the work he did was far superior and my shoulder was back to normal within days. I highly recommend Travis and I wish I could see him on a regular basis!!
After a couple of weeks experiencing pain in my upper back and left shoulder due to a workout injury, I went to Travis for help. After one session my pain had minimized and I regained my range of motion in my shoulder.
There are people who give generic massages - and then, there is Travis! I can't recommend him strongly enough. His massages are clearly a blend between art and science - creating a relaxing massage experience while also working with you to pinpoint trouble areas or painful spots. Travis is professional and caring, firm but gentle. He's helped me with neck, shoulder, and jaw issues that were a result of workout injuries or just sleeping in the wrong position.
My most recent issue was my jaw - for 10 days, I couldn't eat normally because of the pain, but I kept thinking it would go away on its own. When I realized that wasn't going to happen, I worried that I would have to launch into a long, costly ordeal with doctors, dentist, facial pain specialists to figure out what was wrong. Before starting with that process, I decided to give massage a try. After one 30-min session, the pain was significantly better. After my 2nd session, I could eat regularly again! Just a couple of weeks later, and only 3 sessions (partly working on the jaw muscles, partly relaxing full-body massage), my pain is 95% gone!
If you are having any sort of muscle pain, or even need some relaxing full-body massage time, do yourself a favor and go to Travis. You won't regret it!
