What my clients say...

Read how Jan's current and past clients descibe their experiences with Valley Therapeutic Massage::

I have two serious forms of degenerative arthritis that result in pain and chronic joint stiffness in my back and neck. For my needs, by going for Jan’s therapeutic massage treatments every two weeks for the past 15 years, I can keep moving, with reduced pain and stiffness. Jan is extremely professional, thorough, and attentive to both chronic and acute areas needing therapy at each session. I highly recommend Janice Luzzi Therapeutic Massage for persons of all ages needing either short-term or long-term therapy.

"I found Jan my first summer at Smith College, as I started my studies in the School for Social Work. I returned for massage each of the 3 years I was in the program. The sessions were the most significant way I reduced my stress ! She helped get me to graduation!"

" I've suffered with back and shoulder pain for quite a while. The pain traveled into my head and arm. I received THerapeutic Massage from Jan and could not believe the relief I had! I've scheduled additional sessions as part of my treatment plan, and am very glad to be working with Jan. She is knowledgeable and effective in her treatment. I recommend her to anyone with muscular pain... she's helped me so much!"

"I met Jan at a Chair Massage Event in my office at Smith College, in Northampton, Ma. I was a bit nervous, to receive massage at first, since I had suffered some injuries in a skiing accident. But as Jan worked with me, I immediately felt comfortable, safe and in good hands. I now receive Massage from Jan every week, and can say that her skill, professionalism and care has changed the quality of my life."

" I began seeing Jan in early 2012, after a car acicident. Her work was calming and healing and offered me an opportunity to rest and renew. The accident left me feeling raw and vulnerable: Jan's care and compassion were as healing as the massage itself! "

- Carrie C. Amherst, MA


"After my session with Jan, I am feeling so much better! I slept soundly for the last 2 nights after my session:I haven't slept that well in months. My shoulder and neck pain are gone. At Jan's suggestion, I have made some changes. Holding the leash in my left handwhile walking my dog, has made such a difference in my neck. Thank You!
