"Before I started working with John, I was giving up hope that I could run a half marathon this spring because of a nagging pain in my hip. My PT recommended I run no more than five miles at a time. The exercises he gave me, while I wasn't the most diligent patient in the world, didn't seem to be working.
After my first session with John, I felt amazing! I felt like John was getting my body back into balance so it could heal itself. I could run five miles with only a tinge of the old pain!
After a few sessions, I was up to ten miles! Before working with John, I didn’t think I could run the half marathon this spring. Now, I know I can but I couldn’t do it without him!
Oh, and John helped my husband’s pain and got him running again. He just ran ten miles with me ~ unreal! Thank you, John!" Debbie George Kripalu 500-level Yoga Teacher/Vipassana Meditation Instructor Yogamom14@aol.com Charlotte, NC
"Thank you, John, for your amazing bodywork. You're a wizard and I think you oughta be working on Popes and Presidents. You should start a McBride massage school so you can spread your art form around." Laura Moore Charlotte, NC
"I had the most wonderful bodywork session today from John. His combination of massage, structural integration, and energy techniques is amazingly effective. He is very intuitive and responsive to my body's reactions, adjusting his pressure accordingly. I also appreciate how he reminded me that this was MY time so we did not have social conversation during the session. I was able to totally relax and focus on my breathing, making it a meditative experience as well. Thank you John, I'll be back soon and I'll tell my friends!" Linda Buckel Charlotte, NC
"John is an angel… he just radiates good will and good energy. I see many people are saying how amazing he is, so all I can do is join the chorus!
I, too, have had many, many massages during my life, but John's massage is different from all of them. He uses pressure and movement at the same time allowing the body to flow into the work. It is like an active massage, as if you were rocking the area at the same time as putting pressure on the spots that need it. Without going deep, you cannot undo the years of built up stress in your body and John is able to do that in a unique way.
I have had tingling and pain in my left upper leg area for over 20 years that plagued me on a daily basis. After working with John for about 10 weeks, it is almost completely gone and days go by without my thinking about my leg!
He is a joy to work with… Judy Levine Asheville, NC
"The bodywork John McBride provides is on a different level than any massage I've ever received, and, as a 62 year old carpenter, I've had a lot of bodywork! I have always appreciated good, strong deep tissue massage and at the same time, a sensitivity to the exact amount of pressure called for. John brings the perfect combination of strength, confidence, and authoritative deep work continuously balanced with a profound sensitivity and intuitive, kinesthetic connectedness guaranteed to achieve beneficial results and prevent injury. I trust him. Our massage sessions are a collaborative venture involving not just pleasurable physical contact, but lasting healing on many levels. His intense work is never too intense, and his sensitivity is never timid or hesitant. John McBride is the real deal." Patrick Sullivan Charlotte, NC
“I received a gift certificate for John McBride's bodywork services as a birthday gift from my wife – and what a wonderful gift it was!
I scheduled my appointment after a busy 3-week stretch at work, looking to relax and wind down. What I experienced was far beyond any massage I have ever received.
John's techniques were truly unique. I've had probably hundreds of massages in my lifetime, and John's bodywork session surpassed them all by leaps and bounds.
In fact, of all the techniques John used, I don't recall having encountered any or many of them ever before.
Unlike the massages I've received in the past,bodywork from John left me feeling both extraordinarily relaxed AND amazingly energized.
It's hard to convey, and it sounds a bit silly, but I was left with an indescribable feeling of complete contentment. What's more, I wasn't the least bit sore or tired the next day, as is often the case with regular massages I've had before.
Before I saw John, my wife tried to describe the uniqueness of his techniques to me. While I believed her, I didn't think John could offer anything I hadn't seen before.
But she was right, and it's impossible to describe. You have to experience it. I wholeheartedly recommend John McBride's services to anyone!” Sincerely, David Dobson TV Producer Charlotte, NC
"My massage experience with John was truly amazing. I went in expecting a regular massage to relax my muscles. But John did much more than that. He helped me work through the emotional tension that I was storing in those muscles so that I could truly release them. It was incredible, and I can't wait for my next session!" Jessica Copeland Lawyer Charlotte, NC
“Wow! There is so much that is wonderful about John’s bodywork. Afterwards, my entire body feels both energized and relaxed. My being radiates, and I just have to smile!
I love that I know it is making a real difference energetically, as it enables me to release old patterns in my body; which is helping me shift into a new phase in my life.
I’ve never had bodywork like John’s before. It’s a whole new level of amazing, unlike anything I’ve experienced previously. I’ve never been relaxed and energized at the same time.
I’ve been so incomparably blessed by his services. I have told my friends about him and continue to tell more people. And the center where John works, Elemental Healing, is centrally located, easy to get to, and a peaceful place!” Susanna Schlabach Dobson Television Stage Manager and Barista Charlotte, NC
"Thanks for the bodywork today. It was definitely the best and most professionally administered I’ve ever had. You are a master." R.F. Charlotte, NC
"I went to John with a painful, very tight lower back. He asked me some questions and assessed my problem and then worked on my entire body…and I was transformed! Total relaxation and alleviation of my pain in my one session!
John has a kind attitude and is genuinely interested in my well-being. I felt like he intuitively knew what to do to help me.
I have been getting massages for the past 40 years and getting a massage from John gave me more energy and yet relaxed me at the same time.
It is one of the best massage experiences I have had in my life! This is a necessary part of my health care regimen for my mind, body and spirit. I already have referred friends to John!" Rene Timpone Anti-Aging Expert Charlotte, NC
“I totally appreciate working with you. You are such a blessing to me. There is definitely some deep healing going on in our sessions.Thanks again for our session yesterday. It was so great, and truly transformational. I just wanted to let you know.” Maureen M. Charlotte, NC
