New York, NY
I didn't see Dr. Piken for my first visit, but massage therapist Jennifer Soto. I was in agony with a muscle spasm around my lower left shoulder, not even a muscle relaxant was helping, and I saw an offer on a deal site for Innate's medical massage. I decided to go, with some desperation, to see if there was anything that could be done to relieve the pain. It was the best decision I could have made. Jennifer was so smart, skilled and careful about what she was doing ?? and kindly explained what was going on in my back ?? and the hour-long massage not only immediately relieved about 70 percent of the acute pain I felt, but I left the office able to take a deep breath for the first time in days and sleep and sit comfortably that night. By the next day I was even able, quite gently, to take a yoga class. In just one hour at Innate, my back felt dramatically improved thanks to Jennifer's intervention. Without question, the most effective massage I've ever had and I was so grateful. I've since recommended Jennifer to a couple of people struggling with back issues. In addition, both Sojourner at the front desk and Dr. Piken were extremely friendly. Wonderful experience.
