• I know how grateful I am when I
get a good massage recommendation so I wanted to pass on how great
Phil Verges is. I initially
found him on Park Slope Parents. He gives a great PSP members discount
but what really caught my eye is that he does massage as well as
Jin Shin Jyutsu, something I had never heard of before but found
intriguing given the chronic issues I was having. Phil is by far
one of the
best massage therapist I've been to and I've been to many. He is
super in tune to your muscle aches and trigger points. It's hard
to describe the Jin Shin Jyutsu other than to say I'm so relaxed
and centered after a session with Phil - all tension just melts

• There are very few massage therapists
I trust. Phil was able to hone in on exactly where my stressor
points were during my massage to
resolve the tension I was feeling without causing me discomfort.
The pressure Phil applied was effective without being overbearing.
He also gave me very helpful pointers afterwards that I could use
daily to avoid developing more knots in the same places he massaged.
Something as simple as not wearing a belt has helped tremendously.
I believe anybody who comes to Phil is in good hands.

highly recommend Phil Verges. He's the most competent massage
therapist out there. I went to him for back/neck/shoulder issues
relating to carrying/wearing a heavy baby and he resolved them
all. Phil takes the time to evaluate your problem/ discomfort
and is careful not to use too much pressure, but enough to
really resolve the problem, he's very good about listening to
He's also very knowledgeable about anatomy/alignment/physiology.
I would put him much more on the medical/physical therapist end of the spectrum.
It's not so much a spa experience massage, though I find it much more relaxing

the best ever! I used to have issues with being
ticklish, but not this time.

• Phil's work transcends massage and body work. Every time I have
a session with Phil I come out of it feeling re-calibrated and balanced.
• Phil is one of the few practitioners I trust for my own healthcare. I feel amazing and rejuvenated after each session and it keeps me going to help me help my clients. His sessions are such a treat! Phil offers gentle yet deep healing work.

Over the summer I injured my neck and could not move without JOLTING pain. Phil worked
on me for an hour or so and not only did the pain go away but i was able to move and go about my day.
Our family trusts that we are in good hands with Phil.
