P.Wilson, Maryland – MD- Family Doctor
I am a family doctor practicing in Prince George’s County, Maryland. I met Steve over 6 years ago when I was looking for a massage therapist that could handle my 5ft 11in, 240+ lb frame. I had several massages in the past and, while I enjoyed them, I learned that all massage therapists are not created equal.
Steve’s bedside manner immediately impressed me. Over the last 20 years of clinical practice, I have been paid the same compliment many times so I recognize when a healthcare professional has the ability to make his patients/clients feel at ease. I found him to be very knowledgeable, caring and his massage technique was exceptional. I remember how tight my muscles were during that first session and how hard Steve worked on trying to get me to relax. He gave sound advice about how I could improve my physical well-being and better manage my stress which was apparently affecting me physically.
Since that time, we have developed a great rapport and I have become one of his "regulars." The benefits that you will receive from a massage by Stephen include stress reduction with relaxation techniques, relief of muscle aches and pains, and increased knowledge about how to live a healthier lifestyle. In addition, you will get to know a wonderful person who I consider to be a good friend.
Carla Machado – National Figure Competitor/Fitness Model
I am a National Figure Competitor, Group Exercise Instructor and Fitness Model. I train very hard to attain my physical goals and appearance. I am challenged daily with sometimes up to 3 hours of hard-core cardiovascular programs followed by plyometric and agility exercises and of course lifting weights.
Steve has been my official certified massage therapist throughout my competition seasons and off season as well. He is very knowledgeable and professional in what he does. He is punctual every session and locates the areas on my body that need extra work and concentrates on them until they are completely ready for more torture the following day:) Steve is the very best massage therapist I have had the experience of doing business with on regular basis and I have had a difficult time trying to find someone to replace him or even come close.
I highly recommend Stephen Hartswick to provide massage services of all types to every type of person (physically fit or not).
I wish you the best of luck in Germany and you are truly missed!! :(
Keep up the excellent work and you will succeed!

Stephen Hartswick has been my massage therapist for over five years now. Originally seeing him back when he was at the Galleria Salon & Spa, I hunted him down as soon as I learned that he had left there to pursue his own practice and I now have massages by him every two weeks on my day off.
Stephen is very professional and has always made me feel comfortable right from the start of our very first session so long ago. His knowledge of the body is amazing because every time I ask him a question about a specific problem area, he explains what it is and works to fix the problem.
I have referred several colleagues, friends and family to Stephen. All of which go to see him on a regular basis. One friend from North Carolina has Stephen do her bodywork whenever she comes up to visit me. She suffers from Fibromyalgia and has told me that, after having massages by Stephen, her relief from pain lasts much longer than from her massage therapist at home.
I would consider Stephen Hartswick a great asset to the bodywork profession. I know that wherever his practice takes him, I will always be part of his clientele.
Jaclyn Palumbo- Professional Model
I am a professional model who's been featured in many US regional publications and advertisements. I first met Stephen by accident where I had a scheduled massage with another Massage Therapist who did not show. This turned out to be a miracle for me, as it was the best massage I have ever been given. Five years later, I am still going to Stephen and will follow him wherever he practices bodywork. Not only is he professional and knowledgeable in what he does but he also has the hands of a God! My favorite part is at the end of a massage when he uses a technique that makes you feel like his hands have turned into a machine to finish your back muscles off! That’s how he has gotten me to continue my sessions with him three years later!
Stephen is all about his clients' needs and expectations. One day I had a terrible headache at work and called him for help. Stephen went out of his way, came to my location and gave me a 15 minute neck massage that completely took care of it! This showed me his dedication to his clients. He takes pride in his work and cares for his clients 100% and that’s what makes him not only a great massage therapist but a great person.
