Testimonials

Massage and Body Work are part of my life. With it, I move and feel much better. Without it, I'm stiff, literally and figuratively speaking. I received Bo Walker's info after a visit to Canyon Ranch Lennox the fall of 2012. Bo was referred as a Neuro Muscular Therapy (NMT) specialist by Canyon Ranch, one of a several names practicing in New York City, where I live.  I started working with him shortly thereafter, in January 2013. I have been seeing Bo off and on for the past five years and he is one of the best therapists I have had the pleasure of working on my muscles, tight spots, aches and pains. Bo understands the human body, its structure, how it moves, and how to help it move most efficiently and comfortably. He understands the bone structure, the muscular structure and everything in between and around those two fundamental parts of our bodies. If you are need of some tension release, some muscular love, some deep stretching and body work or simply some wonderful R+R, I can't recommend Bo Walker enough. Whenever I see him, I leave feeling a little bit lighter, a little bit taller and a whole lot better, physically, emotionally, psychologically.  - Angie Vieira Barocas

 

WOW is all I can say… Bo is the best massage therapist I have been to…. and I have been to many. His technique is neuromuscular therapy. I moved from Florida to New York City about 20 years ago and went through about 10 prior therapists until I finally found Bo. I have been going to him for about 18 years. I am a runner, skier, and squash player and have had many injuries over the years. Bo has fixed them all. And equally important he taught me how to stretch out the muscles myself, so I sometimes go for 6 months with no injuries. But inevitably something gets strained and I need to see him. Don’t go anywhere else...He is the best.

I have been going to Bo Walker for many years now and he is consistently an incredible healer. He has such a broad range of skill, wisdom and modalities that he effectively and beautifully handles any problem my body walks into his office with. He is also very knowledgeable and helpful with preventative stretches. The Active Isolated Stretch work is just miraculous in how it supports my body. And Bo is a master teacher of it. To put it simply he is a true healer, he fixes and relieves. I recommend him  without hesitation  to all my friends.   - David Barrett New York, New York

 

Bo Walker has an incredible talent for healing. I recently suffered from a spasm in my lower back which made sitting, bending, even lying down, very painful. In one massage therapy treatment Bo was able to locate the source of the problem, loosened the area around the spasm, and virtually eliminated the pain and limitation I was suffering from.  He did more in one treatment than a doctor and powerful drugs could accomplish in a week. Not only that, but he also showed me stretching exercises I could practice at home to keep the problem from reoccurring. Bo accomplishes all this with his deep knowledge of the human body, and a wonderful sense of humor. I am forever grateful to Bo.

Bo has worked with me for over fifteen years, specifically on upper body and arm issues related to being a musician. He is the only person I have found in New York who has the skills necessary to help me. He has deep experience in a variety of modalities and tangible healing energy. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been a client for more than 15 years and I am amazed at how much better I feel after a massage. Bo has seen me through total knee replacement on both knees and chronic back pain. My visits help ease the stress of urban living. I cannot imagine life without my weekly sessions!    - Ruth G. Williams

 

I spent nine months going from doctor to doctor, from chiropractor to massage therapist and no one was able to help me get my hip back in place. Neurologists suggested a cortisone shot, but I could feel the bones rubbing together and believed even if you numbed the area, it would eventually deteriorate the hip or leg. For nine months I couldn’t sit, stand, lie down, sleep, step in or out of the bathtub without excruciating pain. A friend insisted I see her massage therapist Bo Walker. One month later I’m nearly my healthy self. Bo is a healer. He’s a master of anatomy and technique. The exercises he’s taught me are strengthening and releasing muscles. He’s even helped me reestablish my center of gravity. If this story doesn’t convince you that he has exceptional knowledge to heal difficult problems, call me! In the meantime, don’t walk, don’t pass go, don’t collect $200. Go straight to Bo Walker. You’ll thank me. Really!   - A grateful client, Ginny Pulos

Bo Walker is terrific.  He “fixed” my shoulder – a 2-3 inch imbalance between the right and left sides – and helped me figure out how to pay attention to the way I sit and stand so I can correct those postures and not strain my neck and shoulders.  I recommend him highly.    - Marlene Booth


After only three sessions, a problem I had since childhood with my feet was corrected. This was absolutely amazing to me, since I had been to numerous practicioners including podiatrists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, etc. Thank you so much!   - Lynn Cole
