Teaching is his calling.
I have had massages from other therapists, but Arnie is quite exceptional. He has a “sixth sense” and seems to truly understand both your physical and emotional needs. He has amazing touch and listening skills, which enables him to respond to your needs with remarkable sensitivity and accuracy. Arnie is extremely passionate about providing the art of relaxation, calmness and spiritual healing. He has a gift that goes beyond imparting excellent physical well-being to instilling a sense of complete contentment and tranquility. Without a doubt, Arnie does have “Golden Hands.”
Amazing. Best massage I've ever had; and I've had my share...Much more than just relaxation and stress relief. I don't know how he does it, I just know it works!!!!
I see Arnie for massage every week in the comfort of my own home. It's wonderful! He brings his table, sets up, and then I know that I am going to have an hour of relaxation and peace — with no phones ringing, no emails to check. Just Arnie kneading out the stress and knots in my neck and shoulders and back and smoothing out the tension of the week. I love the foot massage too. He ends each massage by rubbing his hands together and placing them over my eyes and face. His hands get extremely hot. It feels like I have a hot cloth on my face. It is the most soothing and wonderful way to end a massage.
Before receiving weekly massage treatments from Arnie, I had a weekly massage with four generations of massage therapists over a 14-year period. They were all very good. But I've had the best results with Arnie. He is far and away the most dedicated, diligent, and helpful therapist I've ever had. I'd recommend him to anyone.
You care and that is not only contagious-It’s everything!
...I am a musician who suffered a traumatic injury in which my arm and shoulder were twisted, pulled, and jammed. The pain I had for one year was as if someone had locked my upper quarter into an iron cast that squashed my ribs and shoulder. In addition to the physical pain, I felt as if a gift I had been given at birth, and the craft I have developed my whole life, had been ripped from my body in an instant. For a year I had sought orthopedists, massage therapists and physical therapists within a thirty-mile radius of the Boston area to find relief. My experience of Arnie's massage is as follows: it is as if his sensitive hands coax the trauma, pain, and spasm from my muscles. Arnie's hands seem to have an innate sensitivity and intuitive understanding of what is needed in order to heal. It feels as if the trauma that froze my muscles releases through his hands. I noticed after just three sessions (actually it was apparent after the first), that his massage had released the pain and multiple spasms of this injury in a way I have not otherwise been able to find. Of course this affects my technique at the instrument and my ability to do my work. Equally, the healing I feel affects my posture, my ability to move, to sit in a chair, my comfort in my own body and mind, my ability to sleep, and my appreciation of life. My spirit is lifted. I am writing this testimonial because it is the least I could do to say thank you.
Even more today, two and half weeks later, I'm feeling the profound positive affects from my two massage sessions with you! The anxiety caused by my heart attack four years ago is completely gone. What a gift you have given me! I've had massage all over the world in some of the best places and nothing compares to you.
As a Reiki Master, who's participated in a lot of Reiki sessions, the energy I feel from your hands surpasses anything else I've experienced before. I already feel that my lungs that were damaged from side effects of bypass surgery are greatly improved - I was out sprinting today! The changes in my body are profound, and your Guided Relaxation CD allows me to go right back to my healing place.
Arnie is a very gifted therapist who I've known for years. Beyond giving a very healing massage, he has a wonderful energy about him. I always love seeing him. He is a person who is doing the work he was born to do.
I’ve been seeing Arnie now for 5 years. He has the most amazing hands and they work their MAGIC every time I see him. All the aches and pains rush away along with the stress of my daily life. There are not many things I do for myself in my life but treating myself to his massage is one of them. It’s been a long journey and he has seen me through many ups and downs, but through it all he manages to always have a kind word to say and always relieves the stress from my daily life. I cannot imagine seeing anyone else.
You are very skilled at creating a trusting, loving, and peaceful environment to learn and reach out to others in. It has obviously been well thought out. You were very organized and professional—as well as being warm, sensitive and funny—in other words, yourself.
I recently took my first workshop with Arnie Katz. I have to admit that I am not the kind of person that usually enjoys attending workshops but Arnie put me at ease right away and I just loved his workshop! He created an environment that was supportive, safe and inviting. The workshop was extremely well planned out with a good variety of activities. By the end of the workshop,I was feeling so much better than I did at the start. Arnie is an excellent facilitator. I look forward to signing up for another one of his workshops in the future. The world needs more people like Arnie!
I have taken several workshops with Arnie. Arnie’s workshops are fun. Just the right amount of instruction, a safe and organized environment, and an invitation not to take things too seriously. He helps us to be fully present. He holds a huge heart-centered space so we can be ourselves, feel what we feel, feel safe, and connect with the group. I always feel more alive and cared for after his workshops.
Training Facilitator Testimonial:
Arnie has a true understanding of the mind/body connection and an incredible ability to focus on how to think and live positively. Sessions with Arnie always put me in a positive frame of mind and he gives me the tools I need to help me remain positive, and to prioritize what is really important in life!
Couples Massage Classes Testimonials:
We attended an instructional couples massage session with Arnie at the suggestion of a friend and had a wonderful experience! Arnie took the time to get to know us and what we were looking to achieve and tailored the session to meet our goals. He has a true passion for massage therapy and we both walked away feeling like we not only got a lot out of it but also had so much fun learning. We can't wait to start trying this at home!
Arnie Katz is caring, thoughtful, and excellent teacher. His virtual couples massage sessions provide a way to learn and de-stress in this time of isolation.
Guided Audio Journeys Testimonial:
Arnie is not just a great massage therapist, but he is also highly skilled in the art of relaxation as demonstrated through his guided relaxation CD. Since listening to his CD, I have become much calmer as a person, for I know that when life becomes too overwhelming, I now have the option to reduce the stress by listening to his CD. During nights when my mind is racing and I have trouble getting to sleep, I've noticed that the easiest way for me to fall asleep is by listening to the CD. Arnie's relaxation is both unique and practical because it combines peaceful imagery with muscle relaxation. Overall, this is a helpful tool that would benefit anyone who wants to handle stress in a way that is both healthy and effective.
On-Site Chair Massage Testimonials:
Arnie Katz is super! He has been to my office 4 times and the employees here love him. In fact, several now get double sessions - 30 minutes worth and two employees are now seeing him for full body massages outside of the office. Your employees will not be disappointed. He is professional, clean, brings music, etc. I highly recommend him. And, it's great to get the kinks out during a stressful work day.
We were lucky enough to have Arnie come to us via an on-site health clinic that we held in our Boston offices. We had such an overwhelming response from our employees, that we decided to sponsor a two-day on-site massage clinic specifically to bring Arnie back in. He is wonderful to work with and is very accommodating in working out a format and scheduling the chair massages. More importantly, his personality meshes well with our employees and even those “first timers” for massage therapy felt comfortable and got the opportunity to relieve some Holiday stress. We hope to be able to make Arnie's visits a regular event at our company!
You as the teacher are open to being the student. It was wonderfully refreshing to experience you as both. It gave me permission to experience myself as both student and teacher.
Arnie’s work is refined and polished. He is clear and confident, and is a wonderful workshop leader. His workshop was a deeply profound experience for me.
Arnie is such a gentle soul which helped to create a great container.
As a facilitator, rather than using a fixed agenda, Arnie connects to the intentions of the participants and thrives on inspiration, creativity and spontaneity to create the best program possible.
