66 YO- Overall health has improved through massage therapy – I have the highest regard for Nathaniel's skills as a medical massage therapist. I had a stroke that paralyzed my left side ( face,arm,leg) in March,2007. This was followed by open heart surgery in May,2007 to replace a mitral valve. The surgery went well but I needed a pacemaker five days later. I recovered well with the help of an excellent rehab group and the counsel and medical care of an extremely competent cardiologist and his team.
18 months ago I went to Nathaniel for an ongoing stiff neck problem that I have had for 25 years as a result of sports injuries . Except for surgery I had explored
all traditional avenues of care (I thought). After three visits my stiff ,painful neck problem was gone..it stays at bay by being addressed every 3-4 weeks now. I had considered my recovery from my stroke and heart surgery to be complete. However,15 months ago I decided to see if the numbness ,circulation and flexiblity of my left side could be improved through medical massage as well as addressing aging problems ( I am 66) of lower back and hip pain. As an estimate of recovery I would say all these problems have recovered 70%. I started playing basketball again about 4 weeks ago. I lift weights and do Cardio 5 days per week. Massage Therapy is part of the reason i am able to still do these things.
One Massage Therapist about another – I've been to MANY, MANY massage therapist and have had some good massages and a lot of not so good massages. Im also an LMBT here in the Triangle and I speak from experience when I say that Nathaniel has exceeded my expectations.
I was specifically looking for a therapist that had experience in Medical massage because of some lower back issues a few other therapist were not able to help with and also specifically TMJ. From the beginning, Nathaniel was professional and courteous. He took the time to assess my posture as a good massage therapist would do.
His treatment methods were excellent and "on point." He used several different techniques to target my problem areas. Most of them were fairly AWESOME! LOL I hope he doesn't mind if I borrow a few for my practice.
He continually upgrades his knowledge on massage modalities. Most recently he traveled to an educational opportunity in Advanced Myofascial Release. I was extremely glad to be his client on his return. :-D
I whole-heartedly endorse Nathaniel as your next massage therapist. If you have a musculature issue that just can't seem to get better, he's the professional to see.

Best Deep Tissue Massage Ever – I have gone many places over the years to deal with my tension headaches and Nathaniel is the best, hands down. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about how the body works, but he will show you things to do at home that will help you improve on a daily basis and never tries to sell you anything. He immediately identifies problem spots and is very conscious of how much pressure different areas can handle. I hope he never leaves the area because I'm not sure I could ever find someone else as good as he is. I think he is magic.
Seriously the best theraputic massage I have ever had! – very professional. nice atmosphere. can feel the results...
Outstanding service, knowledgeable staff – Nathaniel was my therapist and he was knowledgeable and very good at explaining what he was doing, why and what to expect afterwords. His work has been the best at addressing my upper back and shoulder pain.
Best Massage in Cary – Staff is very good at listening to your needs and able to quickly pinpoint trouble spots. Also very knowledgeable and willing to share information about how to deal with muscle tension on your own and stretches to do to minimize tension.
Great Deep Tissue Massage! – I have had several massages in the past. . .Nathaniel's massages exceeds them all. His massages have helped me with issues such as my back problems and circulation problems. . . . If you have wanted a massage that really works on improving your health, and not just one that "feels good", he is the guy to go to.
Very attentive staff – I was battling some muscle injuries and decided to try therapeutic massage. After just a few sessions, Nathaniel had me feeling like new. He really listened to what was bothering me and knew exactly what to do. He even gave me stretching tips and book recommendations to keep my injury from coming back. He is extremely well educated and professional. Now I go see him whenever I just need a massage, and always come out feeling amazing.
Best Place for a Real Massage – I have had massages at dozens of places over the past several years and none could live up to Body Basics. The space is soothing and Nathaniel is extremely professional. He makes a point to talk over your goals for the session before getting started, no matter how long it might take. He also constantly asks for feedback during the massage (too much pressure, not enough, etc.) so you don't have to suffer in silence like some other places. When I leave Body Basics I am always relaxed and more balanced and often I can even breathe more deeply. This is a great place to go if you want to feel the lasting effects of a great massage.
great sports massage – I'm a student athlete at one of the local collegs and I had been having problems with my shoulder and lower back . One of my friends referred me to Body Basics and even though I was skeptical that massage could help, I felt a lot better even after the first massage. My shoulder hadn't moved that freely and with as little pain in years. It took a couple more sessions to get my back feeling better, but now it is doing really well. Also, the therapist there showed me some new stretches that really helped keep my shoulder in better shape. I will definitely go back if my shoulder or back starts to bother me again.
