Best Massage in CT

I’m the biggest skeptic when it comes to finding a new  massage therapist.  Probably because every time I need one, I’m already injured, which means  if they’re too aggressive, I’m screwed.

I have had this problem with my neck  since high school.  Rather I have six or so muscle knots  that pretty much paralyze my right hand. But only when they are active.  Unfortunately, they’ve been active a lot the past couple years.

I’ve done physical therapy several times and  I know all the exercises I need to do. But a good massage tends to yield more benefits than my stretches.  Especially if done together.

Yesterday, I went to Bill Gibbs Massage Therapy  for a half-hour massage. He located on Wolcott Rd in the Salon 69 Spa.  A seven minute drive from my home.

The spa is super clean with soothing music playing. Bill is über chill and immediately puts you at ease.  He asked questions about my neck problem, including what flared it up and what types of stretches I was doing  to relieve the pain.

There are couple private massage rooms with very comfortable massage tables that feel more like beds.

When Bill started the massage, his hands were warm. Definite plus in my book. He worked on the muscles in my neck, shoulders and arms.

He applied the right amount of pressure and I never had to ask him  to ease up. He found all the problem  muscle knots and  worked on each one.

This is one of the best massages I’ve ever had in Connecticut. Definitely one of the top five in my life.

By the time I left, my neck felt looser and longer than it had in weeks. I didn’t have any nerve pain in my hand  and felt  20 times better than when I walked in.

I’m going back on Thursday because he’s that good.

    I’ve been looking for a decent place to get a good massage around here for quite a while now but none of my friends could help me. Sounds like Bill Gibbs is a great masseur and I will definitely try out his spa. Thanks for letting us know about this place!

    • He’s really awesome. I never found anyone who listened so well and understood exactly what I needed in a massage. And he’s very nice and calming to be around. Hope you have a great massage with him!

  2. I have found the same thing, some people are too hard on my back and I end up in more pain then i came in with! I have found one good place in my whole area where they ask as they massage.
