I feel honored to publish a few recommendations of my long time and regular clients; it will help you to learn more about my practice. ~ Ingrid Staecker, LMT
"Ingrid Staecker has been my massage therapist for over six years now. From the beginning I found the massage sessions therapeutically effective and also relaxing. I saw that Ingrid respected her patients sufficiently always to explain clearly just what she was doing therapeutically and why. Then, as the months went by, I realized that I was experiencing remarkable cumulative benefits. Already in my mid-70s and quite sedentary in lifestyle, I was surprised to find that various chronic aches and pains were steadily diminishing. No longer, just for one example, did my right leg hurt every time I drove for more than hour. And my whole body was becoming more flexible. Of course Ingrid Staecker’s remarkable effectiveness in her work stems in great measure from her rich experience as a PT in Germany and her years here as an LMT, and also from her continuing participation in workshops in myofascial release. She is a massage therapist with an amazing intuitive ability to identify and treat sources of pain and immobility, and to suggest practices in which clients may work at addressing these problems at home. It is clear that for Ingrid Staecker her work is truly a calling, a source of deep satisfaction and joy. We who live in the Guilford area are fortunate to have access to a massage therapist of such gifts and commitment. I am grateful for this and know that many others among her clients are too."
"Ingrid Staecker is a gifted massage therapist given her high level of knowledge, her intuitive sense, and her training as a physical therapist in Germany. I always leave a massage with Ingrid highly relaxed, but she is the rare massage therapist who can go beyond the simple "once-around." She spends extra time as needed to help work out painful neck and back issues with the targeted use of ice, stretching and deep therapeutic work. She also gives good pointers about maintaining healthy posture and habits. Highly recommended!!"
"Ingrid Staecker is a master massage therapist. In addition to possessing consummate skill and professionalism, she is an intuitive body worker. As a physical therapist with chronic orthopedic problems, I am blessed to live just a mile from her office. I have been a client for several years and see her on a regular basis.
You will not find a more talented clinician on the shoreline for acute or long standing conditions."

"I highly recommend Ingrid Staecker for professional massage. I came to Ingrid in physical crisis after 15 years of daily pain resulting from cancer treatments for two separate diagnoses. When I first met Ingrid, she very attentatively listened to my concerns as well as assessed my physical range of motion and condition. Licensed as a professional physical therapist in Germany, her expertise in anatomy and kinesiology imbues her wide range of therapeutic techniques. Ingrid expertly responds to each individual and condition using her vast knowledge, intuition, and skill set. Today, my pain has been eased, my range of motion increased, and quality of life renewed. I gladly continue to drive from New Haven for regular therapeutic massage. Thank you, Ingrid!"

"I am a long standing client of Ingrid Staecker. As an architect, I have constant problems with my back. The therapeutic massage that I receive from Ingrid eases my back pain and stiffness. Before I started seeing Ingrid I was so used to being hunched over I did not know how to stand straight. Ms. Staecker has helped my posture tremendously.
Thank you Ingrid!"
"I have used massage as a regular part of my wellness for the past twenty years due to back injuries. During this time, I have experienced many types of massage and many practitioners. Ingrid is by far the best practitioner I have found. She combines advanced knowledge of both massage and physical therapy to create an individualized therapy that has helped improve both old injuries and new stresses and reduced the need for other pain management therapies. Ingrid is a caring person who works hard to ensure that you leave feeling better and with strategies for improved wellbeing between appointments. I would highly recommend Ingrid for any massage need. She is equally adept at therapeutic massage, stress relief and infant/child massage; my whole family looks forward to a visit to Ingrid!"
"A massage from Ingrid is my favorite reward for a good report card! She helps relieve the aches and pains from a heavy book bag, growing pains, and overdoing it at sports."

"I started receiving treatments from Ingrid when I was 5 months pregnant with my third child. Besides the regular aches and pains of pregnancy, having two other children and owning a business contributed to my dramatic need for therapeutic massage. Ingrid's experience with prenatal massage made a huge difference to me; I have visitied other massage therapists who advertise prenatal services but in reality they don't seem prepared for those clients. After having my baby, Ingrid's background in physical therapy was invaluable to me as I sustained injuries from my lifestyle of computer work all day coupled with some aggressive baby-weight-losing workouts. For six and a half years I've been a regular client of Ingrid's, and I have no plans to stop."
"I have been a regular client of Ingrid Staecker for the last four years. As a runner and an athlete, Ingrid has addressed every annoying injury and strain that I have experienced and has kept me running.
With a background as a physical therapist Ingrid has in depth knowledge of human anatomy. She always seems to know the area of the body that needs work. As an added extra, she will give you exercises that will help you with whatever problem you may have. She is very professional, I highly recommend Ingrid Staecker as an exceptional massage therapist."
"Ingrid is a wonderful massage therapist and very knowledgeable. In addition to her massage experience, she also brings her training as a physical therapist to the table and has helped me with some fairly serious neck and shoulder issues. I have recommended her to many others and they are all very satisfied. I can endorse her with my highest recommendation."
"Over the past few years Ingrid has been my massage therapist and friend. Her enthusiasm for living especially shines through her massage work and in being an exceptionally skilled and insightful therapist. When I first met with Ingrid she knew exactly what needed to be done to help me overcome some of the issues I was experiencing due to diabetic neuropathy. Her knowledge of physical therapy informs her work in massage and she is always very supportive with lifestyle changes or exercise suggestions to help overcome my difficulties. I am grateful for all the good Ingrid has done in improving my quality of life!"
