Loraine is great, especially for athletes and injury rehab. She goes deep but gets there gradually so there is no pain. I just started going to her regularly in conjunction with a physical therapist and am feeling a difference already!
Loraine is very skilled and very conscientious of her clients' needs. She does a great job at making you feel comfortable, and she works with you to make sure she's applying the right level of pressure for any massage. She has excellent people skills.
I have chronic neck and back pain from college football injuries and automobile accidents. In addition I have experienced debilitating pain from plantar fasciitis. I was told to seek out a reflexologist to work on my legs and feet. I got a hold of Loraine and she fit me in her schedule. She was able to see me immediately. She worked on my legs and hips and feet which really helped to relieve the pain I was feeling. I plan to visit her regularly now. Thanks Loraine!
The ease of setting up an appointment is awesome. The location is convenient. I am so grateful to have found this business. I have been struggling with some neck pain and the ability to go and receive a massage without scheduling hassles has been wonderful.
“When I had my first AMC Therapy, I was doubtful. I mean, how can pushing on various spots of my body with a rubber thumb do anything but make me squirm? As a test, Loraine worked on half my body, then had me walk around. I felt oddly unbalanced. My body wanted to go in circles. After AMC Therapy on the other side, I was delighted to find that I felt as supple as a young teenager. My joints were flexible, there was a spring in my step, and I was joyfully walking straight again! I was eager to have another treatment, with the same astonishing results! Now, even though some of the AMCT is a bit painful, it is only temporary, and it’s for my own good, since I can always look forward to a more youthful body, with stiffness gone, better alignment, and a spring in my step.
Bring on the rubber thumb!”

“I became familiar with Loraine Hansen and Massage Essentials because she offered deep tissue massage and I was interested in getting rid of my chronic pain. I had been visiting a chiropractor regularly and was feeling some improvement. The chiropractor suggested that I needed to relax my muscles, so I began looking for a knowledgeable therapist. I interviewed Loraine and found her to be informed, progressive and professional. After some treatments and improvement, she informed me that she was taking some continuing education credits on a technique involving targeted musculoskeletal stimulation. After one treatment with the new method, I knew that I was making more progress than in 6 visits with deep tissue massage. I have continued to make steady progress, and I think I will soon be able to cut back to a maintenance routine and be without pain for extended periods. I highly recommend this method and this practitioner.”

Loraine is amazing! Her massage brought instant relief to my stiff back and she even recommended some at-home exercises that I could use daily to help accelerate the healing process. The day after my massage I had a PT appointment and the therapist noted for the first time that I finally had some flexibility in my spine. I have been more flexible and I've been able to do exercises that I had been avoiding because of pain. Loraine has powerful, healing hands and I would recommend her to anyone struggling with tension or back pain! I can't wait until I see her again and we get to work out even more of the tension that's been in my back for the past year. Thank you Loraine!
