I was limping from the after-effects of a bad ankle sprain when I first began to see Todd. Pain in the area around my achilles tendon and many tight muscles in my calve had made it impossible to walk normally without severe pain. I got immediate relief from the first time that he worked on me, and that first time gave me a preview of Todd’s practical, effective and high-level approach. Not only did I get the immediate relief and the beginnings of a return to full function, I also had other affected areas of the body released as well. Since benefitting from Todd’s expertise, I have gone on to do many active things, including mountain-climbing and, now, playing tennis at a strong club (4.0) level. As a 45-year-old wanting to improve my tennis game, Todd’s services have been immensely helpful, providing a foundation of fitness and recovery as I was able to put in the work to improve from a 3.0 to 4.0 level over the last 2 years.
Two months ago, after extensive travel, I went to the tennis court and overdid it, wrenching my lower back badly. After having Todd help me, and being diligent with stretching and strengthening exercises for the core/lower back, I have been back on the tennis court, playing as well as ever, and feeling very good on the tennis court and off the court afterwards. Todd has helped in both increasing my capability and in recovery as I continue to work to improve my tennis game. I recommend him extremely highly!
Todd has the ability to enhance an already skillful massage with added nuances of knowledge of muscles. His intuition combined with experienced hands can open the doors for many to heal. Todd’s massage is amazingly advanced. I believe he is one of those rare individuals who first learns what is taught in the massage schools, but instead of remaining content with that, chooses to move beyond what he has learned. In just 2 sessions with Todd, I experienced more lasting physical benefits than from all the other massage, acupuncture and chiropractic I have received to this date. And for the price he is asking, I do not believe you’ll find a better value. Recommended.

I’ve had numerous muscular problems – neck and arm stiffness – restricted motion in hands, feet and knees – for many years due to shortness of leg and a very physical job. Todd has been able to bring back my mobility – over time – working at a pace that I direct – He is gentle but is able to work with me within my tolerances.
The results of Todd’s work is remarkable – I feel like a new person – now able to move freely with out pain – I would recommend to anyone to listen to his recommendations, considering length of time needed to bring good results.

A person or business has to be way beyond average for me to recommend him/her/them (via massage testimonials). This is why I have yourself and Fanno Clinic via letters in newspapers and to individuals several times.
I have been to a number of LMT’s in my life, but one Licensed Massage Therapist in particular stands out. Todd Pennington, LMT is his name. Mr. Pennington was originally trained as an electrical engineer but switched professions some years ago. Like a engineer if you want him to, he can be somewhat intense, no fu-fu New Age, Music, incense, poster or Psychobabble in his office. He is both serious and very knowledgeable about the body. He also is great at relaxation massage.

Pennington Massage has helped me so many times when I have been completely locked up with painful muscles. They usually get me in that day and are very generous with their time on my behalf. I keep returning to see Todd because in spite of the severity of my back or neck pain, he works out the problem. I am very grateful I found this service.’

I am an active, healthy person but the more I exercised the tighter my leg muscles got (stretching, potassium, protein and foam rolling did not help a bit). It got so bad, I decided to get a massage even though I couldn’t afford it at the time. I found Pennington Massage Clinic on Yelp and made an appointment.
I still can’t believe it, but after my first massage, my leg was 50% better! Todd Pennington located the cause of the problem and released the frozen leg muscles. He uses alternating deep tissue pressure that is easier to tolerate than other techniques I have endured (the muscles in his hands may have a slight quake from giving so many massages).
In addition to treatment, Pennington Massage is big on prevention. Todd showed me that I am somewhat hyper-mobile and that I have been hyper-extending my joints which has caused my muscles to try to support them. I essentially had frozen body. With this information I have been able to change my sitting, standing, resting habits and to stop re-injuring myself. I now do joint strengthening isolation exercises plus maintenance massage therapy at Pennington Massage Clinic. Thank goodness their rates are affordable.
I have been to several appointments now and can attest to the fact that they are fully committed to what they do. Todd also provides massage therapy for MS patients and his wife Pam is an experienced cancer patient massage therapist. You can trust Todd and his wife Pam 110%. They are two of the most kind and sincere people I’ve ever met.

I too used a Groupon Now, but called before purchasing it to see if I’d be able to get an appointment same day. I did and was treated with great care and received excellent work by Todd who was able to alleviate the majority of my lower back discomfort. It was my first massage geared for actual therapy work rather than just pampering, although Todd does those type as well. I’m feeling considerably better after the session and thank Todd for his excellent massage.

Todd gave me the best therapeutic massage. I have had a frozen shoulder and he helped it in one session improve at least 50%. My neck and shoulders were tight and after his massage the ROM and creaking improved significantly. I made an appointment to return twice a week. I highly recommend him to anyone with headache, neck, shoulder and back problems, and anyone who thinks they are too stiff.
I’ve been struggling with intense muscle tension from an ergo problem in my office (limbs falling asleep, headaches, shoulder pain, extreme fatigue, etc.), and after an hour with Todd, I feel better than I have in months. He explained the various problems he saw and what he could do to correct them. He told me what he could do to help me and laid out a specific treatment plan. Thank Goodness! I’ll be back!

I am someone who gets massages not as a “treat” but as a therapy for chronic pain. If you’re looking for relaxation massage in a hip location with lots of asian chic decor and talk about your chi then look elsewhere. This is more akin to a medical practitioner’s office than spa parlor. What matters to me is that Todd delivers on the promise of pain relief. He helped me adjust my posture, worked trigger points in my neck and thigh. He is mechanically very good at what he does and has an intuitive sense for finding key fascia and problem muscle tissues. I highly recommend him for pain relief.

I found Pennington Massage by Groupon Now. My arms were sore from doing a bunch of yard work and so I just wanted someone, anyone to massage them for a bit. When I walked in the door and met Todd he took one look at me and said your neck is bothering you, isnt it? My neck has hurt for years and I have had countless of massages and chiropractic treatments getting pretty good relief. Well, Todd runs the business with his wife (Pam) who is a massage therapist and her speciality is lymph drainage~ great for anyone who has cancer, especially mastectomies! But I have not used her. Anyways, Todd has this technique called Controlled Muscle Massage. It is not a feel-good type of massage. It is the kind that gets to the problem area and loosens up the knots and fascia so the spine can realign itself. It is the best massage I have ever gotten as it has taken care of my chronic tight, out-of-whack neck. It hurt to have it done at times but I needed it and I feel so much better for it. Todd is a talker so it is not a relaxing kind of massage but what he does is get feed back from you and he wants you to feel the difference when your body responds so he has you moving your head or getting off the table to feel the difference.
My Mom and my best friend have gone to him multiple times and love what he is able to do for your very tight muscles. So go to him if you are athletic and need a sport massage or just need to have your tight muscles loosen up a bit. Know that this is NOT a Spa experience but more like a medical massage. I only wished I had found him sooner! One good thing is you can have your doctor order and insurance can pay for this. I am so glad I found him by accident on Groupon! Thanks Todd!

Mr. Todd Pennington has shown himself to not be your average massage therapist. His approach of targeted muscle release is far more effective in rapidly gaining flexibility and pain reduction. his knowledge of the interaction of muscles and bone positions allows him to provide quick results, and also has a lasting effect. I was very impressed with his techniques and their results.
