Jim is by far the best massage therapist I have met. If you are suffering with neck , back or joint pain. Jim uses A.R.T. ( active release technique) and other procedures to help relieve pain and spasm and address the cause of the problem. I have had issues with neck and joint pain from personally working on thousands of patients for over 3 decades in my chiropractic practice. Jim was able to provide relief and I have referred many of my patients to him. He is attentive and listens to your concerns, and his priority is your well-being and good health.
I am an active 83 yr. old female and was suffering with neck and lower back pain. Jim DeRusha an A.R.T./ Massage Therapist was recommended to me. After my first session, I was sore but less pain quickly became evident as I continued my sessions. Jim listens to me as I share my areas of discomfort and pain. Subsequently the deep tissue massages are therapeutic for my body and mind. Age doesn't mean you suffer and accept!
Where to start! I'll start by, he's the best at his craft! I been to a few physical therapist, and they do ok work. At the least the ones I been to. " Jim" as I call him, really knows what he is doing. Things I thought would never get better got better. My phrase to him " It's your fault " I'm not aware of how a persons muscles go around the body, he is. It's a true art. I feel great now! I didn't for a long time. I could write a lot, but I won't. Just trust me on this, he knows what he is doing. I thank God someone told me about him. The Best!
Extraordinary on so many levels! Jim DeRusha is the consummate professional. His mastery and knowledge of the human anatomy coupled with his compassion, has brought hope to my husband who has severe arthritis of his lower spine coupled with stenosis and knee issues, which have nearly incapacitated him. Jim is helping him reclaim his ability to walk, stabilizing his gait and as importantly, providing him hope. We have exhausted traditional medical treatment. Jim is truly " The Body Mechanic" and so much more!
My name is Wayne Howell and I have been a client of Jim DeRusha for at least two years now and the results are phenomenal! When I started as a client my body was under such stress that I had trouble walking , getting up and down, climbing ladders and my arms and hands were a mess. I have been a plumber for over 40 years and had just about destroyed myself, but thanks to Jim I can use my body easier than I did at 45. I am about to turn 64 and I can touch my toes! Jim's gift has been such a blessing. I am walking better and have better endurance than I did at 45. If you want to change your life, Jim is da man !
Jim is just the best! I have gone to him for about a year, and he has made a difference! I've seen chiropractors and physical therapists for my lower back and shoulder pain , and Jim's technique and protocol have made the biggest difference. I appreciate his sincere concern about my well-being, and he is excellent, not just because he's very good at what he does, but because he has a servant's heart. I appreciate him and highly recommend him.
Jim is a life changer with his A.R.T. experience. I have been to almost 7 therapist in the Nashville area, and he by far has been the most effective compared to the rest. I felt completely different with just one session!! He is extremely open and nice to anyone and everyone who comes in. Would highly recommend anyone from an average person to a seasoned athlete! Will be going again as much as possible!!
I've been going to Jim for deep tissue and active release technique for about a year, He's very professional and thorough, and can really get deep into the muscle. I'm a professional bodybuilder, so it's very nice to have a therapist who can break up scar tissue in thick dense muscle. He's a fitness and health and wellness guru, so he understands the body and practices what he preaches. He knows his stuff, and I leave his sessions feeling immensely relieved and limber, in addition to his experience and knowledge, you just won't find a nicer guy. I highly recommend him.
Jim DeRusha is by far the best massage therapist I know. He is certified in active release technique and has the best understanding of how bodies work ever!! I am a "special needs" person with multiple challenges and his respect for my differences , attention to my responses throughout the hour I am there? Best ever. What a gem! Great value.
