Jackie is very personable and makes you feel at home. She is very knowledgeable and amazing when it comes to her field. She listens to you and is beyond talented in being able to read your body. I would recommend her to anyone hands down! - Michelle L.
So, I just created a Yelp account for this review, because it was much needed!
This was by FAR the best massage in the New London County area that I've had, and I've tried a lot of places. Jacqueline not only took her time working each problem area (and I have a lot of them) but also taught me a few things about what I should and should not be doing to improve my shoulders/back. Most massage places you go to feel like stopping at a gas station; you stop, fill-up, and take off. Holden Hands Massage was more like an experienced body shop, every detail was covered and no dent was left behind!
I originally scheduled to have another massage two weeks from now, but I quickly changed it to a week from now because it was that good. Do not pass this hidden gem up! - Sean S.
Miss Jacki is hands down the best massage therapist I have ever seen. She intuitively knows what your body needs and helps release the tensions your body holds. She has also prevented me from becoming ill on several occasions by using young living's raindrop technique. I am a doula by trade and I have sent several of my clients to her when they were in need of relaxation and pressure point therapy to help bring on labor at the end of pregnancy. She is amazing! Book an appointment with her today! You won't regret it.

Someone called her a muscle whisperer... I wish I'd thought of that, because she is just that! Soooo relaxing. I have had massages from several people in my life. I am 65. I wish I had discovered someone just like Jacqueline 20 years ago. She finds every knot. The 2 hour session is my favorite. Her prices are very reasonable. You will not be sorry you found this treasure in Groton, CT! - Christine A.
I have been going to Jackie for eight months, and am amazed at how my migraines have lessened. Before starting massage with her I was having daily headaches and taking medication several times a week. Now, I don't have daily headaches, and have only taken migraine medication once in the last month and a half. She also has gotten rid of the plantar fasciitis in my feet! I cant say enough amazing things about what Jackie has done for my overall well-being! - Jaime G.
I first went to see Jacki with issues with my lower back and hip after a friend recommended her. I was dealing with some pain in these areas and she immediately made a time slot available for me. This was the first sign that this was more then your average massage therapy session. She genuinely cared about my well being and spent ample time addressing key issues that I had. I left feeling a thousand times better and the whole experience was just what I needed. There is a great level of comfort here and by the way my body recovered ,the level of knowledge and skill is top notch as well.
Definitely recommend a visit. - Lisa D.
Just had THE best therapeutic massage of my life.
I get massages fairly often and have been all over this area but Jacki was hands down the most educated and in-tune I've ever experienced. HIGHLY recommend Holden Hands Massage !! Michael got a deep tissue sports therapy massage Thursday because he was suffering from bad tension headaches and I have been dealing with sciatic pain and headaches as well from pregnancy - both of us left feeling incredible and pain free! Check her out- You won't regret it! - Oxana K.
