"I have been seeing Blain just about every other week for several years. Initially, his magic fingers undid stubborn, painful knots and blockages. And now, my regular sessions keep them from taking root again. I really depend on Blain to keep me in balance, from head to toe and head to heart." ~ Meredith, philosophy professor, writer, hiker, gardener and fledgling yogi
"I have had acupressure treatments from Blain many times over the last 10 or 15 years. I have always felt physical effects from treatment- relief. There is a less tangible effect, however. It is a feeling of greater lightness, of release. I liken it to getting new eyeglasses. The world seems somehow clearer, more crisp. After a treatment, I feel more openness within. A sort of clarity-- unveiled." ~ H.T., teacher, bird lover, open-hearted optimist
"Blain is an absolute master at what he does. No matter what shape I am in when I walk into his office for a treatment, when the treatment is complete I am in one piece again; relaxed, recharged and ready to go."
~ Haleya, hospice chaplain, Reiki Master Teacher, body-mind therapist
"I find Blain to be a very grounded professional.He brings compassion and knowledge to the table.Blain's work is more than intuitive he always seems to know the exact pressure and areas to work.I appreciate that Blain always takes the time to listen to me and my body's needs. Thank you Blain Walker for your dedication and the wisdom that you bring to your craft." ~ Rose, CMT REIKI Practitioner, hairstylist, client and friend.
"I've been a newspaper reporter since before I was issued a driver's license. I'm 53 this minute. I've interviewed Jimmy
Carter. Bruce Springsteen. Ted Williams. And a lot of people who you might
not have heard of, but I do believe are in heaven. I am convinced that I have never met anyone as good at their chosen calling as Blain Walker is at his. And I've thought about this a good long time. As much as I think about baseball, which is a lot."
~ Tommy, reporter, baseball and music fan
"Blain does a wonderful combination of acupressure and shiatsu; when I
leave his office, I feel like I'm floating on a cloud - relaxed and free of tension and worry. It's like taking an hour-long hot tub, without the wrinkly fingers." ~ JK - Belchertown
Blain's qualities as a person easily carry over into his skill as bodyworker.
He is compassionate, wise, he listens, his heart is open, he's funny, caring and kind.
He can also weave a tale that perfectly translates into an aspect of your life.
It's quite a talent. I told him he should write a book. Blainisms??"

"In over 25 years of receiving many forms of bodywork, I have rarely come across a practitioner as attuned, skilled, kind, and intuitive as Blain Walker. The accumulated emotional and physical tensions of life held in my body begin to let go, melt during a shiatsu treatment with Blain, and I always leave feeling much lighter, more deeply relaxed and beautifully nourished."
~ Deborah, LICSW
"In my many years of having treatments from Blain I've come to appreciate just how talented (and unassuming!) he is. When I'm well Blain relieves tensions and gets my energy moving again in a way that feels so right. But it was when I was dealing with a long-term illness that I really saw the importance of his treatment. Months of adjusting medications and diet finally came to fruition with just a few sessions. He's my hero! "
~ Susan, walker in the rain, dancer in the dark
"Blain has a heart-centered intuitive touch. He is able to get set my body and mind in order. When I injured my arm, I tried many different message therapists and I chose to work with Blain. It has been over 10 years now and I continue to seek out his healing touch. His expansive knowledge has helped me through many physical and emotionally trying times. Both of my children have also benefited from his touch and the lasting effects of the work he does."
