"I have been a grateful recipient of massage from Lori Ann and George Glass for several years. They individualize massage therapy to meet my specific needs utilizing techniques I never received from previous massage. I am impressed by their knowledge of anatomy/muscle groups and how everything connects and affects the body as a whole. I always look forward to my sessions with either Lori Ann or George and I always leave feeling better after they have worked on me. They are kind, professional, great listeners, intuitive and find your troubled areas that you never knew existed. I always tell friends that their massages are just “different” and worth every minute."
~ Carol Wallace,
Nurse, Workers Compensation Case
"I am a young, athletic woman who has undergone numerous surgeries over the past nine years.
Lori Ann Glass has been working on me for the past month and I have noticed incredible relief from pain associated with scar tissue problems, postural issues, and inflexible joints.
My body feels 10 years younger in only 4 weeks! I feel so incredible and I know that my body is prepared for my final surgery."
Thank you, Lori Ann, for giving me back a sense of "normalcy" in my life!"
~ J.Leigh Mestas
"George is one of the most impressive massage practitioners in the country.
His ongoing hunger to train with the best educators in the world is unsurpassed. His service to the AMTA National Sports Massage Council was awesome.
When George hits the teaching circuit, his seminars will be incredible. I would recommend George to anyone seeking a high level therapist, a mentor or an educational advantage."
~ James Waslaski,
Author & International Lecturer on Chronic Pain & Sports Injuries
"I have always been a believer in massage for its relaxation value. I don’t think I fully appreciated its therapeutic and healing properties until I had to cut short a vacation to China because of severe and constant pain in my arm, shoulder and neck. I was unable to lie down, my fingers were numb and no pain killers, muscle relaxants or anything else I tried gave any relief. When I arrived home, I was desperate.
Although I did see the doctor, physical Therapist and Chiropractor, the real help came from George and the therapeutic massage. He was able to pinpoint the source of the pain and to relieve the nerves that were pinched and the muscles that were badly contracted.
My husband also goes to insure he doesn’t have any flair ups of his lower back pain from an old injury. "

"George Glass is…..One of the best body workers in the field…well-trained, professionally competent, active on the state and national levels, and fully certified. George teaches other body workers in workshops and through extensive volunteer work. I have worked with four other body workers in my 14 years of receiving massage. George is a stand out. He works easily, fluidly, systematically and simultaneously carries on an intelligent conversation on topics like sports, music, drama and politics. Do not miss an opportunity to have George work on you, especially if you have sports injuries."
~ Earnest Palola, PhD
"George has been my Massage Therapist for 9 years. After an accident in my Kayak, I thought I would never walk correctly again-broken ribs and a punctured lung. I walked like an old lady-in my 40’s. A few months later, I went to him. He worked miracles. His hands do heal. He broke up scar tissue, and made me whole again. He has continued to work wonders through the past years after a double carpal-tunnel surgery, a fall involving the back, and other minor issues. As always, George is one you can trust, can feel at peace with, and does his job extremely well. He is professional in every way. I will always recommend him to anyone who needs Massage Therapy. He is the best! "
~ Sue Ritchie, Teacher
Manchester Center, VT
"When I first went to George about 8 years ago at my husband’s urging, I felt it was a vain hope. Wow! After living with chronic pain since childhood, diagnosed many years ago as fibromyalgia; and with constant pain in my shoulders and trapezius muscles for over 40 years, the relief felt was like a miracle. With the use of Trigger Point Massage, Myofascial Release and Deep Tissue Massage (All the tiny bumps under my skin disappeared.) George’s work continues to be a major component in my health and comfort."
~ Derry Dickinson, Retired
"I have been seeing George Glass regularly for over 10 years and can attest to his professionalism, knowledge and, most importantly, results.
From golf related pulled muscles to frozen shoulder, I always feel my time with George has been well spent and recommend him without reservation."
Charles W. Moritz
"George Glass was recommended to me by my physical therapist following knee replacement surgery.
It has been a most successful plan. My knee has continued to improve and to feel better following each visit to Glass and Glass Body Works.
George is a very experienced professional with a mild and unhurried manner. I always leave his office feeling relaxed and knowing that my knee is continuing to improve."
M.S.B., Post-Operative Total Knee Replacement
"George is an excellent massage therapist. He is extremely professional with a wide range of knowledge, and his years of experience serve his clients well. He is also active in his professional organization bringing more education to massage therapists throughout the state."
Manchester Center, Vermont
