I have had a bad back issue for many years, gone to Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and many countless " Massage Therapist" whom claim to understand the human body as a whole. They do not! Most of them say it's a deep tissue or even a Swedish massage and are either too light or vigorously working in the same area for what seems forever. Leaving me irritated, sore, still having issues, then other issues that all of a sudden occur. Then let's not forget the one's whom douse your body with god knows what "essential oil stench" and saying this will help with the pain. I explained my concerns to Miss Curtis and she did advise that some times staying in a certain area vigorously working can be beneficial and unfortunately can irritate other areas of the body. That is because the problem may have actually occurred elsewhere prior or other muscles, etc... "wake up" but generally speaking she doesn't stay in one spot for more that necessary! Any how I had no back pain or any additional pain there after for now a few months. I will continue to come in to Curtisy Massage Therapy as needed. P.L
I came to Curtisy Massage Therapy for help on incontinence and other personal reasons related to my pelvic region. I am an elderly gentleman whom lead a very busy life and had also lost a loved one not that long ago. When I came in to see Miss Curtis it was basically for my health issues, as well as a really bad neck issue . I could not turn to drive or hardly look to either side. She was amazing with explaining in detail what her pelvic floor massage would help deal with. I did not know Massages where so therapeutic, not just for my incontinence but all of of my anxiety, depression and the heartbreak of loosing someone.
She explained how massages can bring out many different feelings one has had stored into their entire body not just the mind.. Thank you, your an angel. KS
Miss Parri Curtis, is the absolute finest massage therapist I have ever met. I travel a lot, which means to much sitting in my vehicle or on an airplane. I have been to many different places; I found Miss Curtis while on a lay over here in Grand Rapids and after an exhausting number of calls to " massage places" I found too many Spa like crap, ones who can hardly speak English, some sounded quite Slutty or using this profession to " Prostitute" themselves saying stupid things like body on body rubs, this "nuru" or Tantra stuff that really is disgusting. I am a male whom does like to be touched sensually and I read her Pelvic massages. This understanding is quite intriguing and very understandable that she does not need Men or women especially crawling in to her office trying to cop a feel, or say un comfortable shit, Men really are perverts and she seriously does not take to kindly to those whom think its funny. Sure! as she said some things are okay to say or in conversation but not towards her, she is polite and she is absolutely hysterical to explain her events for 13 years, even to prior Nursing experience. I plan on seeing Miss Curtis when ever I am in MI even if its hours away.
