First – and foremost – why suffer? (Suffering is so 2015.) This master of massage is not only blessed with what I and countless other devotees call “magic hands” (like wow can he get into the nitty gritty and release stress you didn’t even know you had) but the modest practitioner of 25 + years has also studied the body extensively and travelled far and wide to work with some of the globe’s most gifted massage therapists and healers.
At this point, I’ve referred hundreds of clients to him and remarkably, he’s managed to help them all, whatever the challenge, from David’s stiff neck, to my friend Frank’s vertigo, to my own mama Gail’s persistent knee pain. Don’t even get me started on what he does for my bunched up stressed-out back. Heavenly.
Second, unlike traditional massages, where you have to shed all the layers and gear up for a full body experience (not necessarily a bad thing), there is also much to be said for at times, keeping the threads on and having someone focus specifically on the head, neck, shoulder and back regions. It also creates a really cool chemistry with Irving, a little extra sumpin sumpin I’m convinced contributes to his distinctive approach and healing.
Which brings me to the third and final reason to visit this master: the unintended psychological and clarifying benefits. While Irving’s not a shrink, therapist, or life coach, he is an amazingly positive, loving, wise and spiritual human being who derives great pleasure from helping others in every way, shape and form. And somehow, whether you choose to speak minimally or more (guilty with a capital G!) he always manages to leave your head in addition to your bod, in a better, far-improved place. I honestly don’t know exactly how he does it, but the important thing is he does it, and not coincidentally, has touched many lives as a result.
So there you have them, three perfect reasons to treat yourself to a session with Irving. Let us know how it goes. 😉
