"In an hour, I have a new body. It's magic!"
R Harvey, NY NY
"Shelley and Tim are truly gifted. Their skill in massage is akin to that of great ballet dancers: no wasted motion; every stroke seems to come from an inspired, caring source. And the result is more than relaxation...it's meditative, even transformational. Worth a trip to Lake Placid just to receive their gift of superb massage."
Susan B. NY NY
"First massage that I've ever had. Heidi is very personable and kind. Very soothing and calming enviornment and background music. The time goes by so quickly as you immerse yourself in a stress free, rejuvenating experience. Excellent. I have already recommended going to family!"

"Hello,I had recently been at your facility, I had requested a couples massage. My therapist was Ann. Oh my god, what an extremely gifted and talented therapist. I have been doing massage myself for close to 14 years, specializing in very deep injury work, and am never satisfied when I receive massage. Ann went above and beyond my expectations. What a perfect fit for me. I am extremely pleased and satisfied . My neck and back are still awesome, and we received these massages Tuesday. Her hands and technique are God-sent. I was absolutely blown away by my massage . Probably one of if not the best I've ever had. She releived my extreme pain I had been in for weeks. I would pay her $500 just to come to CT, lol, maybe even a Grand!"
Kristin H., CT
"I came in for a deep tissue/sports massage today. My therapist was Stephanie Gubelin. I've had alot of sports and physio massages before and they have all been of a high standard. However, the quality of the massage I recieved today definately surpassed my previous experiences. Stephanie was very rigourous in her approach. She paid fine attention to the behaviour of my muscoskeletal system, the knots in my muscles, and strains in my tendons. She was very gentle in her approach, but she was still able to penetrate deeply into the muscle tissue. I was very impressed and I would definately recommend a massage from Stephanie to anyone who wanted an effective massage. If I ever come back to Lake Placid I will be sure to book another appointment!"
"I couldn't say enough great things about Tim! I didn't go to him just because I wanted a massage, I went to him because I needed help to work through and recover from a back spasm. He took the time to ask many questions, make me feel comfortable, and focused on me as an individual, and not just another client. I wouldn't have been able to "slog" my way through the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot run without his help!"
Kelly G, Lake Placid
"As a full-time endurance athlete, scheduling my recovery time is just as important as scheduling my training schedule. In order to make progress and absorb new training I need to pay extra attention to my recovery, and regular massage, hands down remains the most effective and highest quality recovery I can commit to. I have been working with Tim as an athlete for almost six years now. I have had few other experiences that compare to Tim's dedication, knowledge, ability and approach to his client. Balanced Bodywork is a great local resource! "
Haley Johnson, US Biathalon Team, 2010 Olympian

“I can't say enough good things about Tim, Shelley and the staff at Balanced Bodywork. Their knowledge of physiology, their understanding of how to apply their knowledge to a specific person's body, and their respect for personal space is the best that's out there in the field. You can't do any better. Anywhere.”
Kathiann T, Lake Placid

" Tim; I just wanted to thank you for the great massage...I haven't woken up the last two mornings so tight in the hips and glutes. Your new learned knowledge seems to have helped. Just so you know, I appreciate your efforts in pursuing continuing education...your caring and professional ways...also your excellent draping skills! Very important in a male therapist, so glad you are so aware. I'll call when I get back from Kripalu to set up an appointment."
M.B., Yoga instructor, Saranac Lake NY
