We are so grateful to our clients for their kind words.

I was injured in a car accident with whiplash and was looking for a massage therapist to help me with the pain. Decided to go on line and saw your business name. Light Hands…. sounded appealing so called and talked to Theresa and made an appointment. I have been to different massage therapists over the years, but I wanted someone who specialized in treatment of injury and not just to feel good. I must say I wasn’t disappointed. When I first came I was in a great deal of pain and had headaches. My therapist wonderful! She took the time to explain to me what was happening to my muscles as a result of the accident and truly made me feel comfortable. She has truly helped me to deal with my injury and has helped me to know how to deal with pain between visits with stretches, etc. I can’t thank you and your staff enough for helping me. I would definitely recommend Light Hands to anyone who has been injured or has chronic pain. I will continue to go and would a encourage others to give them a try. You will be glad you did! – SM, Taylors SC 

Light Hand is fantastic. I tried several other places in Greenville to tackle the chronic muscle tightness in my neck and shoulders. I left most of them feeling beat-up or as tight as I went in….until I went to Light Hand.  I’ve been going here for almost 2 years and the light hand approach is just what I needed. They truly do listen to your body and work their way through your issues. The therapists have never forced my muscles to do anything, rather worked with the problem areas to function more normally. They offer a well-rounded approach to heal the whole body by getting to the root of the issues. I look forward to working with the Light Hand Team to get my body healed and well. I’m very lucky to have found a place that really wants to help me live a better, pain-free life. LS, Greenville SC

Had the BEST massage from Light Hand Muscle Therapy Center over the weekend. You know it’s a great massage when you’re still thinking about it three days later!

I am a three-time breast cancer survivor with lymph system issues. I have been using the Light Hand Muscle Therapy Center for massages for 2+ years. The therapists have special training dealing with the lymph system. Not all massage therapists are trained in the specific needs/treatment of post-cancer patients. These therapists are a God send to me and have helped me reach a higher level of functioning than I had when we moved to Greenville 4 years ago. If you are a post-cancer patient of any type of cancer, or anyone with pain issues, please give Light Hand the opportunity to work with you and to hopefully ease your pain, if not completely remove it.

After suffering a shoulder injury and being sent to a physical therapy center (where they made it worse) I was redirected to Light Hand Muscle Therapy. After helping me to understand my injury and ministering to my whole body, the healing began. I appreciate the Light Hand therapists so much for the care I’ve received. They listen to what you say and what your body tells them. Then they share that information to partner with you for healing and managing the care your whole body needs. Fabulous! Thank you, thank you!

 The Light Hand therapists are amazing. They come with years of experience and have transformed my neck and back. Not to mention help with vertigo and inflammation. They also have helped me to understand the body so much better by sharing knowledge and exercises to continue work on my own at home between visits if I wish. ..They have a very caring work ethic that far surpasses any other place of its kind. Would recommend them to everyone!!!!!! I already do!! AH

 Initially sought treatment for injury, however, Theresa Wilkes took the time to explain so many things that were happening with my body and how we could work together to improve my overall health, I’ve been going back to her ever since. The therapy is great, but more importantly for me, Theresa and the staff at Light Hand care for the whole person and they are always seeking out new opportunities to address ALL issues relating to complete wellness. Diet, exercise, nutrition, meditation, classes, tried and true products all add to the overall experience LS

 

 I have some basic sports type injuries and also tendon issues with my right arm/ hand. I had an issue with bad trigger finger with my ring finger. I went to a hand specialist and received a cortisone shot which helped for about 6’weeks. The Dr. said only surgery would cure it if the cortisone did not work. While discussing this with my therapist, she said she could work on the tendons and felt confident she could make a difference. I was skeptical but agreed to extra work in that area. Amazingly, I do not have the painful trigger finger and painful stiffness in that hand anymore. If I overdo work such as painting, I go in and she works her magic and I am fine. I love the fact that I learn how to avoid injury and stay in overall good health. This is a very healing and holistic place. I love it! Kathy B

Light Hand has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I first started seeing the therapists there several years ago for pain associated with fibromyalgia. I can honestly say that I don’t believe I could have made it through that period of intense pain without their help. At each appointment, I am provided with not only with pain relief, but with infinite patience, helpfulness, and wisdom. The therapists give me tips on eating well, nutritional supplements, exercise, and so much more. Every time I go there, I gain some insight into how I can improve my health.

Light Hand is amazing! I don’t have time to go into detail about how amazing every massage there is. My lower back hurt to the point that I thought I might have kidney issues. My therapist worked on my lymph glands. I would have never thought that was causing the pain, but I walked out of the office feeling like brand new! Even if you don’t know it’s there, Light Hand staff will find it and work it out of you. Every time I leave the office I am on cloud 9! –SH

I met Theresa in May 2011, and I wish I had met her sooner. A friend of mine recommended me trying Light Hand Muscle Therapy after hearing about my tightness in my hips and hamstrings. When I first visited Theresa, I was also experiencing some sciatic pain. I had days when I was in tears over this pain and took Aleve on a daily basis. I also had spent a lot of time and money on physical therapy, X-rays, and an MRI, nothing showed up, so I was frustrated with still no relief. I am a very active person, and my tight muscles were limiting my performance and really had me down. I can honestly say after my first 30 minute visit, for the first time in a long time, I had hope that I would move better, sleep better, and perform my physical activities better. Theresa was so kind and patient, and I loved that she listened. I didn’t feel like she was trying to get me in and out. Now, I rarely experience the Sciatic pain that I had two years ago. Theresa also goes the extra mile, and she knows her stuff. She has checked on me after visits, printed out things for me on nutrition, demonstrated specific stretches for me to do, has stretched out my legs and hips for me, gave me a yoga DVD, and has researched things for me. I highly recommend you visiting Theresa before you pursue other options. It can save you time, money, and frustrations, and most of all, you will feel better with her Light and caring touch!, SW

I am a 55 year old male who works out 5 times a week, is very active, and plays golf. Since I was 20, I would tweak my lower back about once per year. The tweak could have been caused by standing up, playing golf or coughing. It was very painful and sometimes I could not even walk for 3 days. I used a Chiropractor to fix the problem. Generally I recovered over a two to three week period. I have been receiving weekly massages from Light Hand for the last 5 years. Since then I have not had any back tweaks and I am much more flexible. I can actually touch my toes without bending my knees first thing in the morning. I credit this to my preventative maintenance program that utilizes massage. Well worth the time and money to insure I never get another painful back tweak. And so I can more easily tie my shoes in the morning. –BB

I have been having intense pain in my hip for 2.5 years. My primary physician x-rayed and could not determine the source. I spent 10 months with a physical therapist and worked diligently many hours each week following the prescribed exercise program. The pain got worse. I started going to Light Hand weekly and have had remarkable results. I can now walk an hour without pain. They have been successful in reducing pain in my shoulder and in both my hands. I am a classical pianist and have arthritis in my fingers. I give Light Hand the credit for the remarkable improvement in my mobility and quality of life. KA

I went to see Light Hand because of a torn rotator cuff. Not only did they do a world of good for my shoulder, but I came away with lots of very useful information (plus the massage felt wonderful)! I wish I’d know about them sooner for other body ailments!

I was in pain 24/7 until I starting being treated by Light Hand. I have disc problems in my neck, and have been to many massage therapists, doctors, and physical therapists over the years. No one has ever made any sort of inroads in addressing my pain until these therapists. I cannot call myself pain-free, but they have my “baseline” at such at great level now. I am mostly free of pain unless I overuse my arms or do particularly terrible things, like use tools that vibrate (I do constructi

on). And even if my pain gets above baseline, one or two sessions is enough to address it. This is such a huge difference. Now it’s occasional spikes of pain. Before it used to be pain all the time, with occasional good days. We will be moving across the country in a few months and I dread attempting to find another therapist in my new home who can do what Light Hand does!

I have had low back muscle pain for several weeks following an auto accident back in January. Over the several weeks of muscle massage therapy, several areas of concern have been addressed and improvements have been coming. The trauma took a few weeks to work out to the max pain level I experienced, but in the last 2 weeks it has been improving. This therapy along with some chiropractic treatments over the same time period are finally bringing some relief. I highly recommend this treatment service for any muscle pains you have. They really know their stuff and treat you in a kind and caring way. Over the past 8 years I have sought out this service for the many pains of aging and hard work I have encountered. I would recommend it to anyone.

I am from out-of-town and had a pain level of 15+. They were able to work me in. My therapist was able to get me immediate relief which was a miracle and well as some good advice. I would highly recommend putting yourself in their hands.

I have started at Light Hand after being in excruciating pain. Through the guidance of 2 of their therapists, I’m no longer in such pain. I can’t express how thankful I am for talented and knowledgeable clinicians at Light Hand. They are such great listeners to your words and your body.

Theresa & her staff are wonderful. I have been using them for almost a year. I have been in excruciating neck, shoulder & upper back pain for about 4 days when I asked for an emergency appointment.  I walked out Friday feeling a thousand times better. Today I haven’t been in any pain at all. I started with them after having breast cancer & am so thankful for the personable, skilled therapists.

They have accomplished professional therapists that know how to get your body past difficult muscle conditions. They also have experience in multiple areas of health so they are able to offer guidance or therapy over a wide range of concerns.
