I don't know how I would have made it through my seasons without the help of Chris Aquino. Massage therapy is a very important element in my training and keeps me performing at my best.  I worked consistently with Chris throughout my last 7 years (on AVP Tour and FIVB Tour) of playing and never felt better.  He helped me through injuries with his knowledge of Active Release Therapy (A.R.T.) as well as kinesiology taping. I love that Chris continues to learn new methods of bodywork to implement into his practice.  I can't thank him enough for helping me to be the best I could be.

 

Chris is the most talented massage therapist I have come across on my Olympic journey thus far. He has a vast knowledge of the body and many tools in his toolbox to help undo your aches and pains. One of his greatest talents is his ability to listen - he can hear you explain your problem areas and then understand the best way to tackle them. Unlike many others I have worked with, he is a constant learner, always willing to develop new skills and learn from athletes and co-workers alike. I've loved every minute I've spent on Chris's table and would send both recreational and elite athletes his way!

 

I’ve been doing CrossFit about 5 years now and have never had access to a Physical Therapist until meeting Chris at CrossFit Costa Mesa a year ago.  I’m certainly not the most graceful of athletes and have suffered some embarrassing injuries like falling off the pull up rig and tripping over a barbell, just to name a few! Although funny, one caused a strained hip flexor just weeks before competing and the other, a torn PCL in my left knee during the last event at regionals.

Chris not only rehabbed my hip and knee back to pre injury condition, but also provided preventative weekly maintenance on my body to ensure I could perform to the maximum potential and continue to compete in the sport I love. I am looking forward to having his #Godhands available at Regionals again this year. We wouldn’t survive the weekend without him!

 

I was fortunate enough to have Chris work on me while I was living and training in Costa Mesa. I came to Chris with smaller issues, tight pecs, shoulder tweaks, etc and he was able to use ART to release the muscles and get me back to my training. I  also would see Chris before competitions for a full sports massage. His extensive knowledge of the human body and also what is required in specific sports makes his work unparalleled and if i had the choice i would fly him around with me wherever i went!

 

Aloha! Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity and skill. We’re so gracious! We truly appreciated your quick response and your coming down to the field. You made our tournament experience a good one that will live in our memories for a long time!

 

Yeah! Thanks for keeping us fresh all weekend!

 

Thank you for looking after us!

 

Thank you for everything!

 

So lucky to have you! Thanks so much for all you did!!!

 

Thanks for everything! Your help was much appreciated! Great meeting you!

 

Thanks for all your help! It’s always great having your support!

 

Thank you so much, it feels amazing, I wish you lived closer!

 

You are the best!!! Thanks again!

 

I stay healthy with God Hands!

 

Thank you for all your help, I couldn’t have made it through the competition without you!

 

Aquino! Came looking for you to say THANK YOU! See ya around GOD HANDS!

 

Best ART I have ever had!!!

 

Chris has been my go to guy for more than 10 years. He has definitely helped me through the years while playing beach volleyball on AVP tour and with Team USA. I trust his skill and professionalism. He knows so much about my sport, but more importantly how the body moves and how its all connected and that’s why he gets better results than the other health professionals I have seen in the past! Chris is the best!

 

Thank you brotha, you are amazing, you’re like a God, there’s no one else like you on the Island! Come visit me anytime and we’ll take care of you!

 

Chris, I am honored to share this work with God Hands.

 

Chris has been coming to my home and gives me massages on weekly basis for the past two years now. He has been wonderful with keeping our appointments and re-scheduling if necessary. Chris is professional and has a great pair of hands. My body definitely benefits from this weekly routine. I recommend Chris to anyone that needs relaxation, recharging or rejuvenating their body!

 

Thank you brotha, you’re a life saver! I’m so glad you are around to hook me up and take care of me!

 

Best one yet, thank you Chris!

 

I've been working with Chris for about two years now. What started as a "free half hour massage" gift certificate turned into a once a week massage I always look forward to. During the past two years I've had a couple of exercise injuries. Through Chris's deep tissue sports massage I recovered completely each time without having to spend countless hours at the doctor's office or physical therapy. One of the very best parts about working with Chris is that I get to have a massage in the comfort of my own home. It is so convenient! I have gotten massages from spas all over the world and I truly think Chris is one of the very best out there.

 

I feel great…amazing! The pressure was amazing! Thank you!

 

Thanks soo much Chris! You're a lifesaver!

 

Thanks Chris, my knee has never felt better. The work you did totally loosened that tight spot, thanks!

 

Oh my gosh I've been meaning to text you all week. After you worked on my shoulder, my shoulder felt better than it had any day post surgery to date. Life got crazy this week, and we did end up playing in the tournament this weekend and so i couldn't call you about Saturday. Seriously, you were extremely helpful. Thank you sooooo much.

 

Chris is an excellent massage therapist…one of the better ones out there. I use him for in-home treatments which I truly appreciate considering he drives over an hour to get to my home. He’s always very thorough, methodical, and as strong or light as I need him to be, depending on the day! Definitely a skilled and caring guy who is interested in doing the best job he can.

 

You are really good at what you do! Its refreshing to know when I get a massage from you, you know what your talking about and you are familiar with how the body works unlike other massage places.

 

Hey leg! SUCK IT! There’s more hockey to play tonight! Thanks for the soft tissue and tape work Chris!

 

Chris has an amazing energy about him. After a massage from him, I feel renewed, energized, revived and relaxed all at the same time. I really enjoy the convenience of having a massage at home where I feel the most comfortable and can quickly shower afterwards and go about my day. Chris is always punctual, professional and constantly customizes his treatments according to my current ailments. I have referred many of my clients to Chris from professional athletes, pre-natal and post-natal women, to people seeking therapy for Fibromyalgia. I have never heard anything but rave reviews about Chris' technique and approach to massage.

 

What separates Chris from the other massage therapists I’ve worked with is his ability to cater both his therapeutic approach and schedule to fit my personal needs. In-home massage is more time efficient and set to fit your schedule while keeping you in the comforts of your own home so you are ready to continue relaxing after your massage. Chris has the ability to understand your specific body and its specific needs to improve your body’s ongoing performance by curing and preventing the issues from coming back. Give him a few sessions to get to know your body and you will see results.

 

I have been a client of Chris' for over two years. In that time he has consistently been the best massage therapist by whom I have ever been treated. He has successfully cured everything from a pinched nerve, to relieving tight muscles brought on by stress, and is so effective for overall sports massage therapy. I am so thankful to be his client!

 

Being a fulltime working mother of two small children, my body aches all the time. After having my massage, I feel like a new person -- completely rejuvenated. Chris has a great calm demeanor which always helps me to get into that "Zen" mode. I am a total day spa person but after experiencing New Body, I only go to Chris for my massages.

 

There is no one with hands like Chris' ... They truly melt away stress! I get a massage from Chris 3-4 times a month and would do more if I could! I have tried several massage therapists up and down the West Coast and Chris is definitely my favorite! Thanks Chris for all your work!

 

I strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle and massage is an integral part of my wellness program. It balances me and improves my running, sleeping, and flexibility. After I beat my body up all week Chris makes me feel like I have a new body!

 

I have been a devoted and satisfied client of Chris Aquino of almost 5 years now. His expertise, knowledge and professionalism is extremely valuable and refreshing to me specially with the many spas and therapists around. He has helped me immensely with releasing stress and relieving pain with his deep massage therapy. I am a firm believer in investing in yourself and your health and I am blessed to have Chris as my massage therapist and friend to help me!

 

After having a massage from Chris, I can’t imagine seeing anyone else. His in-home service is exceptional and I am so thankful that I don’t have to drive to and from my appointment. It is just so convenient, the last thing I want to do after a massage is get in my car and deal with traffic and have my stress and tension return. Being at home gives me the opportunity to just chill or take a nap after a long work day. Did I mention his massages are awesome! Thanks Chris for all you have done for me, you’re the best!

 

Chris is awesome. I have had a lot of massages and he is by far the most professional, respectful, and knowledgeable. He is so gifted. Chris has helped me to relax on those really tough days and has even helped me the day before my wedding. I love that he comes to my home. Once you have had a massage from Chris, you won’t want one from any one else.

 

Chris has been coming to my home and gives me massages on weekly basis for the past two years now. He has been wonderful with keeping our appointments and re-scheduling if necessary. Chris is professional and has a great pair of hands. My body definitely benefits from this weekly routine. I recommend Chris to anyone that needs relaxation, recharging or rejuvenating their body!

 

You can't ask for anything more from a therapist. He's patient, kind, and most importantly he knows what he's doing. From Day 1, he's had my trust and confidence! Not only was he able to release the tension in my muscles but he gave great advice as to how to remain stress-free. The best is feeling relaxed and already being home.

 

I have been using Chris as my massage therapist for over a year now and I have never had a comparable massage - anywhere. He is always willing to work around my schedule and you can't beat an in-home massage in the comfort of your own house. I would recommend Chris over any other massage therapist or Spa!

 

I met Chris Aquino through a good friend of mine over two years ago. He is full of good energy and always has a pleasant presence. He is a talented massage therapist and his experience gets results that are positive and comforting. I also love that fact that he travels. I have recommended him to our clients and will continue to do so in the future.

 

Living in a fast pace society, there is nothing like experiencing an hour of tranquility with Chris. With very short notice, Chris was attentive, on time and available at your convenience. Thank you for making this experience a pleasurable one! I definitely know where I am going, the next time a well needed massage comes up.

 

Before getting married and having my children I traveled extensively and visited the finest spas in the world. Nowhere on the earth have I received a better massage than in my own home by the magical hands of Chris Aquino. For three years I have been spoiled by his visits even lavish my dear friends with gift certificates for his deep tissue massages. He’s the best kept secret in Orange County! Enjoy!

 

There are no words to describe the quality of life that I am able to experience because of New Body and Chris Aquino. It has been over 4 years since my first massage with Chris. From that day, I new that Chris could deliver the relief I needed from the stress of work to make it thru the week.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I had a serious accident totaling my Lexus SUV. Thank god for air bags and seat belts as without them I wouldn’t be writing this. As a result of them, I broke my left collarbone in 2 places, received 1st degree burns to my chest, jammed my right wrist and left thumb and had serious head trauma. Chris had to work around my broken collarbone for 9 months and new just how to handle my rehabilitation…it was slow and painful but he never gave up.

Along with the physical repercussions, I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and my immune was sent into a tailspin. Per Doctor’s orders…I had to change my life and remove as much stress as possible, but Chris is still my best medicine. I have found a deeper connection with myself thru all of this and know that I could not maintain it without my weekly massage. It isn’t just physical health, but mental and emotional health I trust Chris with. Thank you for being so wonderful…it is sincerely appreciated.

 

I am an active person that enjoys participating in sports 6 days a week. After pushing myself in sports all week and the stress that our professional jobs brings to us on a daily basis it is nice to reward ourselves with a massage at the end of a busy week. I have known Chris for over three years and I use his service within my home as well as referred friends to Chris. He is prompt, professional and excellent in achieving what I am looking for in a massage therapist. I would highly recommend him to any man or woman that is looking for a massage therapist that exceeds my expectations.

 

Chris stands apart from any massage therapist I have ever met. I am impressed with his ability to use not only a marvelously fluid style of massage, but also to zero in with pinpoint accuracy on painful areas that need attention. His style is an integrated, relaxing, healing experience that I look forward to each time.

 

"I was referred to Chris Aquino by a friend and decided to try my first at-home massage. I was a little unsure if the experience at home would be as good as it is in a spa, but after having such a wonderful massage, I didn't even miss the steam room or Jacuzzi! Chris is very professional. I love the added touch of bringing his own music to create a nice spa-like atmosphere. When I first saw Chris, I was a little worried that I was in for too strong of a massage, as Chris is obviously someone who works out...a lot! I thought, "uh oh, I'm in for a painful time now", but he has a great sense of pressure, as his pressure was just right....not too hard, and not too soft for me. He's also great at "seeing" with his hands. He's able to hone in on the knots and work those out, and his stretches were awesome too. I will be definitely be utilizing his service again, and would recommend him to anyone in need of a massage that ends up making them feel relaxed and also refreshed!

 

There truly is no one like you! You are awesome and none can compare to your massages and I have certainly have had a lot of them. You are meant to do what you do and I am grateful for what you have done for my aches and pains, and the stress I have had to endure over the years. There is only one therapist for me, and that’s you! See you soon.

 

I feel great, amazing. Thank you!

 

Chris – Thanks for having Magic Hands!

 

I would like to comment on how Chris has helped prevent muscle soreness and injury before/after competing in events such as Marathons/Triathlons. I feel so grateful that he is able to help me so I can keep competing in such strenuous events. The service he provides is exceptional and very professional. I have recommended him to friends and family.

 

Thanks for everything!

 

Chris – thanks for all your hard work and for your help in getting me to Beijing!!!

 

Chris is a true professional… His massage technique has benefited me greatly during my pregnancy and after. He listens to your particular needs and provides a wonderful service. I highly recommend him.

 

Thanks for keeping me healthy!

 

Thanks for all your help. Good work!

 

I absolutely loved having Chris come to my home and do the massage. The massage felt amazing and completely relaxed me, it was wonderful not having to drive anywhere.

 

You’re one of a kind! Thanks for helping me stay healthy.

 

My name is Mindy Stearns, I live in Newport Coast California, I am a television personality turned mother, and with a newborn, massage is ESSENTIAL!! Chris Aquino's hands are like heaven! My husband and I have been getting massages from Chris for almost 3 years. Chris is always professional and has the most comfortable, heated massage table anywhere!! I have had a lot of massages in my life and Chris gives the best. There are few masseuses that have that spine tingling touch. Chris is one of them. He can be gentle or firm and always knows how to find and eliminate the knots! He listens to my needs. Whether it's deep tissue or relaxation…I can't get enough! When I was pregnant, Chris not only had them most comfy table, he adapted the massage to help ease my pains and really helped to calm and relax me during pregnancy. Now that I have a baby, I have a whole new set of aches that Chris has worked on. My body would shut down if it weren't for Chris!

 

Thanks for all your help. You’re the best!

 

Thanks for keeping me moving!

 

Thanks a million for keeping my body together, some times only with tape. ;)

 

Thanks for keeping my body working through all I put it through. You’re the BEST!

 

Thank you for all the torture sessions! You know we LOVE it! You’re the best!

 

Thanks for keeping me in the game, you’re the best! Love you.

 

Merci Chris. Merci pour la séance de torture.

 

Thank you Chris for helping us while we train here. It is always good to see you! You are the best and we always feel great after you work on us!

 

As a Mom and always on the go I’ve used Chris’ home massages on several occasions. His casual yet very professional attitude and work ethic is very comforting to me as woman and client. His willingness to come to my home around my crazy schedule is a truly special treat for me. I’ve called upon him not only for a relaxing experience but also for aches and pains that he’s guided me through with his massage and suggestions. I would truly recommend Chris to anyone needing to soothe a muscle or just in need of a very relaxing massage session.

 

Wow Chris, that was amazing! Thank you for taking care of me while I get ready for London 2012!

 

Thank you, thank you, you are the best Chris. We love your massages. It is always a treat when we can have you come over and take care of us!

 

Hi Chris. I just wanted to write you to let you know how much I appreciate your services. Unfortunately, you’ve completely spoiled me! Now that I’ve had so many massages from you, I hate to go anywhere else. You are so good at catering to my specific needs, and I really love that you are so knowledgeable about physiology. It is great to get a massage from someone who actually knows what he’s doing, and is flexible enough to diverge from the typical “full body” formula and give more attention to my problem areas. When you are finished with my neck and shoulders, it really feels like all the tension has been worked out… which is like magic to me, since that’s where I carry all my stress. Anyway, thanks again. I look forward to my next massage!

 

The at-home massage is great. Being able to be in the comfort of my own home helps me relax more than if I were to go to outside and have to drive somewhere. I usually tried to schedule my appointments just before I went to bed. It helped me relax and get a good night's rest. I sit at a computer every day so my shoulders/neck are always tight. The massage is great also because it helps the circulation in your body. I feel rejuvenated after. The massage has helped eliminate the headaches I was experiencing due to the stiffness in my shoulders/neck.

 

Chris has an amazing energy about him. After a massage from him, I feel renewed, energized, revived and relaxed all at the same time.

My massage experience was awesome with Chris! He came to my house and brought his whole set up, including a radio to play soothing music! The massage was extremely relaxing and the pressure was just right. I felt fully rejuvenated afterwards and I loved the convenience and relaxation factor of having him come to my house.
