I have been a customer of Jack for approximately 3
years. I originally met Jack at Allegheny General Hospital's
Department of Integrated Medicine. He was introduced to me by
Kathleen Krebs, who was the Director of that department. At
that time I was suffering from the effects of a whiplash and a
compression fracture to my T9
vertebrae. I had intense
neck and back pain. I had a consultation with Jack and he did
a therapeutic massage. The treatment was designed to alleviate
the pain I was experiencing. I experienced immediate relief
from the symptoms. I have since had treatments with Jack on
several occasion and continue to improve. I would highly
recommend Jack to anyone suffering with pain resulting from back or
neck injuries. It is great to find a therapist that I can
trust. I have also discovered that massage is
Since November of
2005, Jack has been visiting our home every three weeks to provide
therapeutic message therapy to my 88 year old mother who is in
hospice care. Jack’s gentle approach and keen sense of the
needs of the bedridden has contributed toward my mother’s quality of
life in a unique way. During the recent Christmas holidays,
Jack provided a massage to my son, a professional dancer from New
York City, and his dancer girlfriend. They were amazed at his
knowledge and technique and effusive in their praise of his
skills. Now, my husband and my father
both take regular
messages from Jack. My father has Parkinson’s disease and Jack
has been a wonderful adjunct to the physical therapy exercises that
my father has been given to perform. My husband loves the
“total enhancement” of his well being for days and days after a
therapy session and suggests its strong role in his recovery
from chronic arm and shoulder problems. I am extremely happy
to recommend Jack’s therapeutic message therapy
As a part of my physical treatment as a member of Family
Hospice and Palliative are John (Jack) Smith, Massage Therapist,
visited my home every two weeks. I am 75 and had severe
COPD. Mr. Smith arrived
with his wonderful calm personality, well suited to his work,
expertise, soothing music and “healing hands”. For the care I received I
say “Thank You Jesus”.
With each visit I became stronger mentally and my physical
condition improved. At
one point I could not walk.
Strength returned to my feet and legs, I slept better. I have been exposed to “The
Massage” in Africa and Silver
Maryland but Jack I
must say is the very best!
I do highly recommend his professional care. Visits to my POC revealed
that my lungs had become clear, my blood pressure had stabilized and
because of my progress, and because of my progress I was released
from Family Hospice in February. Realizing what massage
therapy does for your physical condition, I will endeavor to
maintain and also sing your praise.
I have been
fortunate to have had massage therapy in Asia, Europe, Hawaii, The
Caribbean and the United States. I can honestly say that Jack
is the BEST! It was pure coincidence that I was in Pittsburgh
when we first met. I will be forever grateful to "coincidence"
and Jack. He is a

I met Jack by accident and I have
stuck with him ever since. MY usually therapist was out of
town and I needed a Massage Therapist to fill in while she was out
to treat my chronic neck and back pain.
So I called Jack Smith and it was supposed to be a temporary
arrangement until my usually massage therapist got back from
vacation but I soon found out that I preferred Jack and have been
one of his faithful clients for 5 years now.
need relief from pain and stress I have found that Jack gives the
best treatment over any other professional I have been to.
Jack is a very caring person and if you have a specific problem he
will take care of that need.
I would defiantly recommend Jack to my friends and
I have had between 8 -10
massages by Jack Smith. I have received Massages for
relaxation and stress relief and at other times they were for pulled
or strained muscles. My very first massage I was very
impressed with Jack's techniques and massage abilities.
He is extremely knowledgeable on the body's muscles and bones and
how they operate. He knows exactly were all the trigger points
are to relieve knots and muscles in distress.
enjoys helping and healing individuals. He has worked on thousands
of patients and has gained experience with people of all ages.
highly recommend Jack Smith, you will be pleased and

I walked into the relaxing looking room and I began to
breathe more slowly. I felt the peace from every wall of the
room reflecting peace back upon me. You began to read stories
to me of far off lands stimulating my mind to let go of all outer
and inner feelings accept for happiness and relaxation.
my body began to slip under a restful tingling sensation of peace
and relaxation the massage began. The pressure was lifted
first from my head then from my legs and feet.
I felt a warm
sensation as the fan pumped a gently breeze that I inhaled calming
my soul. I then helplessly fell into a state of sweet
consciousness breathing deeper until I slipped under a calming state
of mind. My hands were so worn and tired and once I had the
massage my hands tingled with life and sensation as well as my neck
I felt as if healing was taking place I felt like
I was Jell-O and didn’t want to move and tranquillity was my
world. My body completely relaxed I could only think over and
over “Thank you… thank you… I feel incredible!”. The sounds
were calming. The aromatherapy deepened my breathing and
opened my mind to relax.
The warm wet towels pulled the
stress from my bones, muscles and joints to leave me like Jell-O and
after you were finished I didn’t want to leave and
to sleep for days.
Thank you to the best massage therapist that
ever worked on me.
