“Jodi has an energetic presence. She addresses my needs during our sessions, whether it is for relaxation or for a specific area I want worked on. She is in tune and focused during the session while always checking in with me. She also has good tips for home remedies when pain arises.”

Jodi has been working with my elderly mother-in-law (87 and failing) for almost one year. What started off as a “package of three massages” as a Christmas gift in December 2014 has developed into a lengthier connection because she enjoys the massages, looks forward to them, and indeed improves when she has them…which are every 2 weeks. Jodi has a special expertise and a soft touch with my mother-in-law who has some form of dementia that affects her speech and spends most of her time in a chair. Despite all these obstacles, Jodi is able to provide a welcome, tender and supportive massage which makes my mother-in-law feel so good.

"I first met Jodi Kaufman at the Northampton Senior Center where she was offering massage. I had a muscle in my upper back that had been bothering me for a long time. Jodi gave me multiple massages to that area and it felt much better and eventually the pain was gone! I would highly recommend her for massage therapy."

I just had knee replacement and was in rehab when I knew I needed someone who would help me feel myself again. I searched for a massage therapist late on a Sunday night and found Jodi. Everything I read about her was exactly what I needed! Jodi responded immediately . She seemed to understand my distress . She arrived the next day and helped me more than I could ever thank her. I would recommend Jodi highly to anyone who is looking for a skilled experienced massage therapist who has the ability and empathy to help someone in need . She is just wonderful and so accommodating .
"I have had massages with Jodi over the last couple of months. I have experienced total relaxation with her touch. I get the deep tissue pressure which makes my body more flexible. She is in tune with her clients on what they need and she listens to all their needs. I would highly recommend her and plan on seeing her again as soon as I can reschedule another massage. P.S. I have been with other massage therapists and to me, Jodi is highly qualified! Thank you!"

My mother Irene Silberstein was one of the initial residents at Linda Manor Assisted Living in Leeds. She moved in within a week of the opening last fall and staying until she needed a higher level of care this past June. I want to share the special relationship that she developed with Jodi Kaufman, massage therapist for seniors, who provides services at your facility. After having a massage as part of one of the ongoing activities provided by Linda Manor, Irene enjoyed the experience so much that she hired Jodi to give her massage in her apartment 2-3 times each week. Jodi is an extremely personable individual who developed a very close and caring relationship with my mother. The massage therapy was very relaxing and comforting to my mother and the special emotional relationship that she developed with Jodi provided another layer of comfort for Irene. As Irene’s son and the person coordinating her care, I can tell that it was a joy to find Jodi and be able to provide an activity that was so pleasurable and meaningful for my mother.
