A Hawaiian vacation has been a dream of mine for decades .This month it became a reality, and along with the dream came the sporadic "back attack". My husband and I had no references to go with, so chose Tom for his web page. I have visited a number of massage therapists over the years with good success, but have... More

My plan for this vacation was to move toward restoring balance. I had never experienced Shiatsu before, but on learning it worked on trigger points (It is more complicated than this, but it was all I needed to know.), I made an appointment. Tom is a gifted and solid practitioner. In fact, my husband and I are changing plans so... More

They only offer dates back one year but I was there a few years back and I have never felt so rejuvenated from a massage in my life until Tom Langenstein treated me.

I hurt my shoulder working in the yard. After several days of pain and increasing stiffness I went to Tom. What a difference!! He used Shiatsu (finger pressure) massage techniques to relax my tight knot of shoulder muscle. I could feel the muscles relaxing as he worked on me. Tom sent me home with instructions on how to continue the... More
