Built up Tension in Shoulder, affecting nerve and back (Thoracic Outlet & Carpal Tunnel Syndromes)
"I wanted to tell you that I got in bed last night and was really surprised when I laid down because I didn’t have the usual pain in my back, neck, and shoulders. I also noticed when I woke up this morning, I didn’t need ibuprofen. I cannot believe what one massage from you has done! You are a highly skilled healer and I truly thank you for what you did for me yesterday. I think the universe finally taught me that massage (from you!!) is my first step when I have a musculoskeletal problem. Thank you!!!!!"  

One-on-One, Urgent Pain Bodywork Session

I visited Mitsuko because of back issues and with only one visit it got so much better. She is extremely knowledgeable on this field. - Miriam

One-on-One, EFT & Bodywork Session

"I have been treated by Mitsuko Ito for about 5 months now. Her treatment has been a life changer for me personally and I would recommend her to anyone in need of therapy.

I have a history of chronic/acute pain continuously for over three years prior to meeting her. I was initially treated by my internal medicine doctor and then referred to a specialist. Most of the treatment consisted of various layers of tests followed by medication and more medications. None of the treatment was even remotely successful and even made me feel worse. My symptoms never improved and it became very frustrating and created anxiety and a feeling of diminished hope.

Mitsuko worked diligently with me with massage, EFT and emotional support. She has greatly improved my pain to the point where it is always at worst tolerable and frequently not present. This has greatly improved my quality of life and I am very thankful for her therapy and hopeful for the future.

She is always professional providing both physical and emotional support and treats the whole person. She has timely referral network when needed and I recommend Mitsuko without hesitation based on my personal experience." - Terry O'Shea DDS, FAGD, FACD

Face-to-Face EFT Session

"I worked on a presenting issue and was grateful to work through many emotions involved with it like sadness, anger, and love.  I enjoyed the whole experience. It took a little while to get used to tapping and sharing, but after a little while it stopped being distracting and I benefited from from the integration of body and mind." - Katie

Remote EFT Session over Phone

"I am very grateful for Mitsuko for reminding me about the power of EFT. Her session was timely as I am going through a big personal shift and have been feeling a lot of emotions about some big changes that have been happening in my life. I was able to experience a tremendous amount of relief in pent of feelings of sadness, and also made big strides in finding courage to speak my truth with others. All in a very short amount of time.

Mitsuko was very supportive during the session and held a loving and safe space for me to feel comfortable expressing emotions. She offered clarity and coaching for me to help me to find the right words to express what I was feeling.  Thank you Mitsuko!" - SJ

EFT/Bodywork Combo Session

"I've worked with Mitsuko personally and refer my patients to her. She's firm yet gentle in her approach, leading to a relaxing and effective session. I love the versatility she provides and her passion for finding the underlying cause. Thank you, Mitsuko!" - Dr. Liliana Warner

Bodywork Client with Acute Shoulder/Neck Pain

I just had my first massage with Mitsuko and it was amazing. She explained everything to me about what she was doing. She checked back with me and made sure I was always comfortable. Her room is very pleasant and I automatically felt at home. She talked to me just enough, it was never too much and it was nice conversation. I was astonished about how well she knew my body being a first visit. She knew what was happening at all times.   I had a very stiff neck and shoulder from a bad golf swing. I was miserable and couldn't function my QOL was terrible for two days. I felt the melting sensation in my muscles and was totally impressed.   After our visit it was a 180, I felt great physically and mentally.  I was truly amazed by how I felt afterwards not only physically, but mentally also. I feel 100 percent recuperated after the massage.  I have had no tightness, and my neck and shoulder are back to normal. If any problems shall arrive in the future I will reach out to her. I believe in what she does and God has truly blessed her with an amazing gift.  -- Sean S.
(This was an acute pain situation and the client had a good connection to his own body that the work was just a simple nudge for him to release.  In case of chronic pain, the results of the session may not be so drastic.)

TMJ/Bodywork/Tapping Combo Session with TMJD

"My jaw feels great, My stress level is down, I don't remember the last time I felt so relaxed.  You--and the Tapping -- help me to be mindful, which is critical. But the trigger point releases are most obvious to me. There were some very significant moments this time that may have rolled back days, weeks, months of tension.  That said, the mindfulness has stayed with me longer. So they work together, I think." - Jennifer

--------------------------

Tapping/Bodywork Combo Session

"Our work this week was amazing and opened me up in such a way that when I got to (talk) therapy, I was able to continue to work at a VERY deep level. My therapist, and I were able to access things I have been previously unable to access. What I think is particularly amazing is how you’ve been able to tune right in to what’s going on with me even though you may or may not understand or have experience with dealing with it. You’ve been able to pull on the important aspects of my situation and facilitate huge healing. Go Mitsuko!!!"  -- Caroline

EFT/Bodywork Client - So Much Stress, Leading to Overall Body Tension

Next Day - "My day was excellent. I feel so loose and light. As I came into the office yesterday my co-workers instantly  notice a difference. I received many compliments on my demeanor and my confidence. I've also used the tapping technique several times."
7 days later - "The affects are still going. I feel so relaxed, not so tense. When I feel stress coming on I take a minute and use my tapping coping skills. -- Melissa

EFT/Bodywork Combo Client for Challenging Times and Heavy Stress

She is amazing and has the right "touch" for everything. Don't be put off by her foot techniques: they bring unique pressure to those tight joints and blocked nerve routes.  -- Bert

--------------------------

EFT/Bodywork Combo Client with Chronic Pain and Arthritis

Tapped into old issues that have persisted over my life. Was very glad to realize how much they continue to impact me; very glad to work on releasing the feelings and decreasing the energy they take from me. Look forward to increasing my self acceptance ans appreciation. -- Nikki

EFT Only Session for Phobia of Height

During the session, we used the details of my story to talk while tapping.  This process allowed me to begin to explore deeper into the meaning that I had attached to a  traumatic event that I had experienced.  As I followed the tapping sequence,  I could feel energy start to move through my body.  It seemed that new thoughts, feelings and ideas about what had happened to me began to surface.  There was a shift of energy flow.  I had an unexpected realization that made me very emotional, and it was at this moment that I felt we reached to the "root" of the issue.  I had fully processed and let go of what had surfaced.  Afterwards I felt totally and completely calm even when I thought of the thing that had caused so much anxiety prior to the session.  Mitsuko held the space very beautifully and was fully present with me throughout the session.

I had known something about EFT prior to working with Mitsuko, but having gone through the process in much greater depth, I feel as though I have a much better feeling about how to tap on my own to work through things.  I really appreciated her calm, open and neutral energy that created a space for me to relax and move through the session with ease.  I am very grateful!  -- Rebecca

Bodywork Client with Chronic Upper Back and Sciatic Pain

I visit Mitsuko Ito to help with chronic upper back issues and sciatica in my left hip. I've received a lot of deep tissue and neuromuscular work over the years and can tell the difference between a therapist who is really tuned into what the body needs therapeutically versus one who has confused "deep tissue" with simply applying a lot of pressure to release trigger points and fascia. Mitsuko's work can be intense, but very precise. I'm impressed in her ability to pick up on areas that require attention, but is mindful to not go beyond your comfort level. 

I have received both "traditional" massage therapy on the table, as well as her Sokssage work on a cushioned mat on the floor. Both are great, and I really enjoy Sokssage because Mitsuko can easily work on large muscle groups leveraging her feet and legs. (And no, it's not weird having someone use their feet to massage you! She uses her hands for smaller or more sensitive areas.)

Mitsuko is a caring and compassionate healer. I appreciate her interest in helping educate me on how to care for myself to maintain optimal functioning, especially since my issues are chronic.  -- Dana

Sokssage Client

I have been a lover of massage for many years and I have to say Ashiatsu (edit:Sokssage) was by far the BEST massage I have ever received.  I have extremely deep tissue trigger points and after even the best Deep Tissue Massages after 2 days, I can feel the knots and trigger points again in my muscles.  Mitsuko's massage was amazing and after a week I have minimal to no knots in my upper body.  Mitsuko is very caring and wants to help her patients to the best of her ability.  She talked to me about my problem areas and she was able to focus on those and really work them out during my session.  I will definitely be a regular customer as I am a new resident to the Atlanta area and had not yet found a regular massage therapist.  Thank you, Mitsuko!!  -- Christina

"The experience was like a heavy load had lifted from my entire body. I'm look forward to my next visit."

Michael G.
"I have been going to Sokssage & Bodywork for over 6 months now and I can tell you this is the best experience so far. My body's response has been great and my overall health improved.  I truly appreciate how Mitsuko caters to your body during each session so that no visit is the same.  Give her a try and your body will thank you."

Melodee T.
"I had the best feeling after the massage this morning. Dr. Gibson noted that I was much better. I am sure it was your work! Thank you again for the amazing relief just one visit gave me."

-> Note: 20 min Mini Trial client prior to Chiropractic care.  Her situation was an amazingly efficient and classic case of sciatica being caught by a tight piriformis.  Sometimes it's as easy as a 20 min work, especially with her intuitively strong connection with her body.

"I have only been to see Mitsuko once at which time I had a Sokssage, which is basically a massage done with feet. After she talked to me and evaluated my physical issues she felt that a Sokssage would be the best approach for me. She applied pressure on my back and neck while sitting in a chair or leaning on a cane for support. I had no idea that someone’s feet could be so sensitive. I’ve had many massages in the past and often the therapist wants to apply pressure on my trigger points until the muscle hurts. Unfortunately, this approach has not worked for me; I’ve walked away from these massage experiences feeling sore and not particularly relaxed. What Mitsuko did with her feet amazed me. I could feel tension dissipating. It has been a long time since my shoulders felt like they could move more easily and I didn’t wake up with a headache. The massage I received from Mitsuko was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. It was sensitive, thoughtful, and effective and, last but not least, pleasurable. And Mitsuko as a person is lovely, calm, intelligent and reassuring. After the massage I felt like I had experienced both a physical and a spiritual massage. I have already made an appointment for my second massage."

Kris S.
"Give Sokssage a try. It was wonderful for my body - I am in the midst of training for a marathon and my muscles and mind really thanked me following my massage. Mitsuko is knowledgeable and friendly. Office environment is relaxing and easy to find."

--------------------------

Hunter R.
"A Very Positive Experience.  You clearly demonstrated a complete knowledge of the science and techniques involved with this therapeutic massage. I intend to use your services until we reach my goal for reduced pain and greater flexibility. My current avocational passion is golf, which is becoming more of a challenge considering my increased pain and stiffness. if I can gain more flexibility and range of motion I will be forever grateful! I can't think of anything that could improve the experience."

--------------------------

Henry P.
"Very Satisfied.  Very professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire session."

--------------------------

Brandon P.
"Mitsuko listens with her ears, hands and feet. She is very in tune with body and energy and shares information in easy to understand terms. As a first time Sokssage participant I had a lot of questions and Mitsuko patiently answered them all and more! I'll be back."

--------------------------

Dené D.
"Excellent!  I am in love with my therapist! Mitsuko is very caring, dedicated professional that provides relief and healing to her patients. She has been providing Sokssage and other bodywork techniques to my frozen shoulder. I have been able to gain some of the extension of my shoulder and will continue to improve with her assistance. Try Sokksage and Bodywork and you'll be a believer!"

"A genuine healer.  Mitsuko is THE best kept secret in Decatur!!! If you're in pain, go see her!!!"

Stacey G
"Meditative and restorative massage.  Mitsuko's massages are a meditative experience. She works my muscles in a deep and thorough way and is very responsive to my body's feedback. She is a warm and open person who knows her craft very well. I love Mitsuko's massages and always leave feeling completely wonderful."

Lee W.
"I just had the best massage. She really gets into those twisted muscles and smoothes them out. Sokssage from Mitsuko Ito. Check her out at Mitsuko Sokssage & Bodywork - Asian Fusion Neuromuscular Therapy. She also does cupping which really helps move "stuck" energy."
