Life savior!, 7/28/2010

I started to see Luata about 2 years ago right after I got into a car accident at that time. She saved my life! I found her through citysearch, believe it or not, and all the positive reviews. I made... the right choice! \r\rLuata has very strong hands and her deep massage is really deep. :-) I saw many massage therapists before her and always felt unsatisfied because of a weak massage where it felt like they were just poking at my body and I never felt any improvements. Therefore, you may even feel sore the next day especially if Luata works on your for the 1st time. But then you feel good and pain goes away. \r\rI also love Luata's personality, upbeat character, and wisdom. What's important she really cares about her work and her patients. It shows!

Amazing, healing massage - best in Seattle!, 12/14/2009

Luata is absolutely amazing and you should look no further than her! Honestly, I am hard to impress and have been exposed to all different kinds of practitioners: from fancy spas to therapeutic... massages in China. By far, Luata is the best! Why? Aside from her caring, compassionate demeanor and understanding of the human psyche/condition, she has an unparalleled understanding of the human body and how it works (or doesn't as the case may be). I was lucky enough to find her after an extremely painful shoulder injury. She got me in quickly and helped me feel better with that massage - it was phenomenal, as nothing I had tried worked. (I'm a medical doctor, so I had tried pretty much every pharmaceutical I could to relieve the pain and decrease the extent of the injury.) None of those things touched the pain and tightness the way Luata's healing massage did. I was a convert that night. Since then, I have been going back to her weekly for shoulder & knee pain, IT band tightening and problems related to my scoliosis. She has got me feeling better than I have in years.Oh, and if that wasn't enough, I am very impressed by the fact that she is constantly educating herself and clearly has a passion for lifelong learning.It has been a true pleasure to get massages from her and I recommend her to whomever I can.So, go to Luata's website and make an appointment. It is the best gift you can ever give yourself.

Stop reading this and make an appointment with Luata now!

If you're looking for a massage therapist and feeling overwhelmed by all the choices, you can stop your search and call Luata. Don't look anywhere else. Seriously. In the past, I've had some good, even some great, massages, but Luata is the only person I've found who combines amazing, genuine healing personality with an outstanding knowledge of physiology. I found her web page because I specifically wanted an orthopedic massage. I tend to have little patience with massages that are entirely woo-woo and New Agey and all about ""channelling energetics"" and so on. I need some science behind my massage. And Luata has it in buckets. But.... she also does the spiritual thing. And it doesn't feel put-on. I'm the kind of person who never thought I would use words like ""healing energy"" in a sentence. But Luata is a life force, a true healer, a big soul who melts the most sceptical hearts. And knows her stuff better than many ortho MDs.

Great massages

Luata knows the muscular system beyond norms. She has helped me to lesson chronic pain and an imbalance in my musacular frame. \r\rShe has also helped my elderly father with tightness in his shoulders and neck after surgery.

A True Healer

It is wonderful to have Luata back in Seattle?s Roosevelt Neighborhood! If you have not met her or tried out her licensed massage services, you owe it to yourself to do so. Luata has several decades of professional experience, an extensive background in clinical therapeutic massage, and a delightful personality. I first met Luata about nine years ago, when I was referred to her to help with treatment for painful accident injuries. I had never been to a massage practitioner before, but my concerns were quickly put to rest when I realized the depth of her knowledge of the muscular system and her dedicated professionalism. She helped me heal?it was amazing to me what she could accomplish as part of my medical treatment. Luata is a healer. During the following years, I have continued to return to Luata, not only for care with subsequent medical issues, but also on my own for regular ?tune-ups,? which help remarkably with chronic pain relief and with relaxation. Luata gives excellent explanations of muscular treatments, and she has also shown me useful exercises that improve my everyday life. I will continue to use and benefit from Luata?s outstanding services, and strongly urge others to set up an appointment with her. She is truly outstanding!

No More Pain!

In only 5 visits, Luata has helped me get rid of acute lower back pain that would not respond to medications. She uses her knowledge of the body, and how it is supposed to work, to rapidly identify the problem areas, and gets to work fixing them to get you back to where you should be as quickly as possible. She is always a delight, is very personable and professional, and has a great ""table-side"" manner. Even though my most serious pain is gone, I will continue to see her for regular tune-ups.

Very knowledgeable, professional and experienced massage therapist in Seattle

I went to see Luata Bray after reading the glowing reviews on Citysearch, and all the reviews were correct. The first thing I noticed about Luata is her expert clinical knowledge of her craft. Her clinical assessment skills of my chronic shoulder and neck pain was remarkable. I work as a ICU nurse, and have had chronic shoulder and neck pain for the past two years. As soon as I met her and she began to work on me, I felt that I had found the right professional to help me with my pain and help me to heal and feel better. She is truly an expert clinician, and I am so glad I found her to help me with my chronic pain issues.

Healing Hands

My Physiatrist referred me to Luata for massage and treatment of my chronic pain issues. What I appreciate most about her is that she takes the time to examine me through her postural assessment based on her extensive knowledge of the body. She focused on increasing circulation and helping my muscles to relax. As a nurse, I know that I am in the hands of a healer. As someone in pain, I know that her skill will bring me alot of relief.

Experience a wonderful and relaxing massage.

My 89 year old mother and I have been going to Luata for several years and we both receive many benefits beyond the wonderful and relaxing massages that we have on a monthly basis. My mother broke her hip several years ago and does experience lower back pain which is relieved after a massage. I have experienced tension headaches which are relieved by the knowledgeable and expert massage techniques that Luata uses. What is wonderful is that Luata is able to give both of us the level of massage that is needed. Working on the elderly requires special techniques and I am thankful that Luata is able to give my mother a massage that is relaxing and therapeutic. Our monthly massage is something we both look forward to.

Healing Hands

My husband and I were in an auto accident in August, and I called Luata Bray immediately because of a previous auto accident we had, several years before. There was no doubt in my mind that she would be able to heal my injuriers as she had previously. She has healing abilities, I cannot say enough about her skills.

Best Masseuse

I was referred to Luata by my chiropractor after a motor vehicle accident. I asked how important it was for me to have massage and he said it was essential. I have a long history of severe headaches and neck pain. Luata said I had one of the tightest necks she had ever worked on. I am much improved and look forward to my monthly maintenance massage. Luata is exceptionally knowledgeable and skilled. I am amazed at the strenth in her hands. She is very kind and attentive to my comfort. I love the dim lights, soft music and warmth of the table. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking relief of muscle/joint pain and/or stress.

A great massage

Luata gives great attention to what is hurting the most and also helps the rest of me relax. Each time I leave her office I feel uplifted both physically & mentally and that evening I sleep like a baby. I recomend her to all.

Great knowledge and experience

Luata has improved my quality of life by addressing a variety of physical problems I have had for many years. I have gone to other massage therapists, but always had to choose just one area to focus on at a time. Luata is able to attend to multiple problems all in one session. I think this is because of her years of experience and depth of knowledge. She has helped reduce or eliminate my migraines, knee pain, TMJ and overall muscle pain and tightness. I would highly recommend her, especially to those who have tried massage therapy before, but were disappointed. Not only is she a great therapist her office is peaceful, relaxing and filled with a happy spirit.

Seattle's Best LMP

Luata Bray has been my massage practitioner for over 5 years. She is a natural, intuitive and very gifted healer who is highly professional. Her evaluations are in depth and extremely thorough. I have had chronic back and neck pain for over 20 years and have had many body workers and massage practitioners work on me. Luata has been the most helpful for me. She is honest and direct, open and curious, warm and caring. She has a wonderful sense of humor and I always feel well taken care of and healed on so many levels after my sessions with her. I so appreciate the work she does.\rShe has my highest recommendation. She is the BEST!

A therapeutic massage

Luata is a Seattle treasure. I first went to her shortly after throwing out my back four years ago and have continued with monthly maintenance ever since. She understands my body better than I do, pointing out the reasons behind my aches and pains and suggesting stretches, exercises and ergonomics to help make them go away. She doesn't just treat symptoms, she treats the individual client. She helped me get to the core reasons behind my persistent migraine headaches not only through her expert evaluation and massage, but also by referring me to an acupuncturist whose treatment complemented Luata's good work. When I started with Luata, it hurt whenever she touched me and she always understood and respected my pain threshold. Now I'm much healthier, and the massages are as relaxing as they are rejuvenating. And she knows what I like (scalp massage, Nerali oil). Bottom line: I look forward to seeing Luata each month -- not just for the massage, but for the holistic experience of sharing a hour and 15 minutes with her. She is a caring, smart, interesting person -- an amazing massage therapist and a trusted professional.
