Steven’s work is excellent in all ways! I wouldn’t hesitate to return! Thanks, my shoulder is much better!

I've had my first session with Stephen Opper and it was great. He was kind, patient, and I liked that he took notes while I was talking so I knew he was really hearing me. He's obviously very knowledgeable and I'm looking forward to our future sessions and the progress that I'll make.

Review of Steve O
Steve O gives a serious massage, designed to relieve pain. I came in with shoulder pain after a double mastectomy. He first looked at alignment, and then got to work. The massage was very firm, but he always asked if the pressure was ok. He is extremely knowledgeable and a very nice person. My shoulder improved some from the massage, and I’m sure if i lived in Asheville and could go to him regularly, this problem would go away. I highly recommend him.

A Healing Experience
I believe Steven O is a true healer. His anatomical knowledge is first class. However, it is his ability to put that knowledge to sensitive use which created such a powerful experience. Although it was a full body massage, he was able to focus on energy blockages and deep muscle tension.

I may still be a ways out from full recovery from a second herniated disc but Steven made more progress in an hour than I thought possible. Clearly knows the human body well; physical, mental & holistically. Regular sessions will be a standard from here on out. I'd be foolish otherwise. I refuse to do surgery again and it is good to have someone who can empathize with the type of injury and pain associated all the while serving as living proof of better days ahead and a necessary cheerleader.

I came in with a whole laundry list of issues yesterday, including a swollen knee that I was thinking might be a meniscus problem. Stephen did some assessment and treatment around the patella tendon and associated muscles, as well as medial and lateral ligaments. Today my knee is markedly better as well as the other areas he worked on. Nothing I had mentioned was left untouched and all had some improvement. I am a therapist with 20 years experience and Stephen is a favorite go to!

Exactly what I needed.
Stephen is intuitive and knowledgeable. It is refreshing to have someone work on you, who understands the depth of movement of the body and knows how to begin healing chronic patterns.

This treatment was not what I expected! Grateful so--Stephen intuitively went very deep into old psychic ancestral wounds in my belly. Slowly, with great sensitivity, he held the space for me to remember and release blockages I hadn't even realized were there. Amazingly, this reorientation in my body brought a liberty-lightness to step, deeper breath, comfort in being. Thanks to Stephen! He truly has a gift!

My experience with Stephen and his magic hands have enabled me to walk upstairs without pain for the first time in over a year. His techniques are strong yet gentle and miraculous in my opinion.

I had received a gift voucher to come here and I thoroughly enjoyed my session. I feel refreshed and like I have a better understanding of my body.

Best massage I've ever had
Stephen is skilled and talented. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about functional movement and took time to ask questions and explain why I am having some of the problems I do. I barely was able to walk in and practically danced out. He is truly amazing!

Stephen is one of the most Knowledgable and Skilled Massage therapists in Asheville
The combination of a deep knowledge of the anatomy of the body and decades of background in dynamic, structural and functional movement arts make Stephen unique in the field. Manual medicine is a cut above and highly recommended.

Real deal NMT, top notch therapy
I am very selective about who I let work on my body. Stephen is the real deal. It is obvious that he is not only passionate about what he does, but that he has invested lots of his time and self to learn the body's mechanics and to hone his practice. He is friendly and personable, incredibly caring and attentive, and as careful as he is powerful. Go get put back together.

Really Listens Well & More
When you are hurting one seems to be looking for relief no matter what. To get there we need to communicate in an efficient way so healer can understand our issue. Stephen listens, asks ?'s to make sure he understands and when comfortable starts. No nonsense. What a good therapist does sometimes is complex. Almost what you think. Very Satisfied!!!

Always solid work
I appreciate Stephen's deep knowledge of body mechanics and his ability to understand patterns in the body. He's helped me on a few occasion with sports injuries that resulted in habitual soft tissue patterns. I highly recommend his work.

Exactly what I needed
Stephen was fantastic! He's very attentive, has encyclopedic bodywork knowledge, and creates a comfortable space with open communication. I'd been experiencing some back pain due to a knee injury and he immediately targeted the problem areas. I felt definite improvement after just one session and am looking forward to going back.

Steve is a great massage therapist. If you need deep tissue work, then he's your therapist. He knows how to find tight spots and will work them out. Thanks Steve!

Thums up from a long-time client
after welcoming me into the clean, fresh-smelling massage center, Steve performed a visual scan of my resting posture. After noticing that my pelvis alignment was a little tilted, he began working on the hips specifically to loosen and relax, and reset the hip flexors. Steve has an expert awareness of the human anatomy and gives you a powerful healing session that is deeply relaxing as well. He is MY choice in WNC for massage and bodywork. We are lucky to have Steven Opper in our community!

I haven't felt this good in years
I've been struggling with intermittent lower back pain for years. In my first 90 min session with Stephen he quickly and accurately diagnosed the heart of the problem. He went to work on muscle groups that I hadn't even realized were locked up. His obvious skill and calm, competent demeanor made it easy to relax into the intensity of the session. By the end of the session I was feeling wonderful. Several days later, I'm still noticing how much better I feel. I highly recommend working w/ Steven
