Though reviews are limited, Integrated Movement & Massage Solutions gets a perfect five-star average from five Citysearchers:
- I had never felt better after just my second massage! I booked three more right away with her. I always look forward to the next one! – BonBonO
- Because I had minor surgery on my back and I move around a lot, I've had massages all over this country and outside this country. From NY to San Fransisco [sic], Texas to Montreal, I have never found a better massage therapist than at Integrated Movement here in Hartford. – christo55
- My therapist was courteous and gave me options I didn't know I had when receiving a massage. Would I go back again? definately [sic]! When? Not soon enough!! – aishmajor
Integrated Movement and Massage Solutions
State-licensed massage therapist (license #004958) A. Malaika Sharp cultivates relaxation and targets each client's unique issues with a focused menu of services. She can shoo everyday stress away through basic relaxation massages, but she’s as focused on function as she is on feeling good. An avid martial artist and cyclist, Sharp consults with all clients to understand the ways they use their bodies for work and recreation. That helps her pick out distinct patterns of motion and coax bad habits or stored tension out of muscles, whether she’s targeting chronic aches through deep-tissue techniques or helping athletes recover from strenuous duck-duck-goose training through sports massage. Or, for those suffering from headaches and migraines, she can incorporate trigger-point therapy. Sharp is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and is certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
