"If you want an awesome deep tissue massage Louie Newstrom is your guy. I've had several massages from him and I feel amazing afterwards. He has helped get rid of migraines, tight muscles and lots of knots. He's my #1 massage therapist to go to and I recommend him to all my friends and family. I took my son to see Louie on his 2 week leave from the Army and he left awesome after his massage. He's very professional too and answers any questions you have and will give suggestions on what to do in between visits if you ask."

"Juliana is truly an amazing massage therapist. She can work on any body type. I would say that her strength is in the area of sport massage. I am extremely active person and Juliana has helped me in preparation and after running GrandMa's Marathon in Duluth, MN. She is welcoming and friendly and makes you feel at ease. I am not a fan of too much talk during my massage and Juliana was receptive for my need to relax. I have purchased gift certificates from Juliana for family members and friends for presents and everyone who has gone has had a nice experience."

"I first met Louis before he started Impact Massage & Bodywork at the recommendation of one of his massage clients. I have been an avid massage enthusiast for years, but since moving to the Twin Cities in 2008, I have had trouble finding someone I wanted to see on a regular basis. That was, until I met Louis. He is masterful at what he does - if you are looking for someone who will make you feel comfortable and knows just how to address your sore spots, you will not do better than Louis. I have worked with more than 20+ massage therapists in the area and I have yet to encounter one who does as exceptional work as Louis.

"Louie gives a great massage. I have troubles with constant tight muscles and headaches and he helped me beyond relaxation with a more therapeutic approach. It's apparent he cares demonstrated by the time he spends with clients and extra feedback such as giving clients stretches they can do between sessions in order obtain the most benefit. Thoroughly impressed!"

"Louie is a unique talent especially for those who need deep tissue and sports massage. I needed relief from a bad back (L4, L5 herniation) causing leg discomfort along with shoulder surgery. Louie contributed in my recovery. I would highly recommend Impact Massage."

"I got my first therapeutic massage from Louis in the Spring of 2014. A massage therapist myself, and a professional ballet dancer before that, I am a picky judge when evaluating a massage therapist. I am also extremely appreciative of excellent work. The massage I got from Louis was sublime! I was impressed!! Before the massage, I had a lot of muscle tightness from work and exercise, and, a stiff neck from sleeping on an air mattress. After the massage I had a relaxed torso, shoulders, and neck which I could move freely again! :)
I think that Louie's background in hockey and wrestling give him a strong base of physical intelligence as well as strength, which is perfect for a massage therapist. Louie has great training and is licensed and certified. He is highly intuitive, focused, and, has a passion for massage meaning he truly wants to help people to the utmost of his ability, so he keeps learning and studying to improve his skills constantly.
I would recommend Louis with confidence to anyone in search of a great massage!!"

"Louis is extremely professional, and really works with you to develop a beneficial treatment plan no matter what your massage pressure preference is. It took me awhile to find a therapist who knows about both muscle anatomy and stretches/exercises I can do at home to imrpove my condition. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family members. Love the new location!"
Katie D. Minneapolis, MN
"I've had 2 massages from Louie, one for an issue with my shoulder and one for my back. They were both awesome!
I've been a weight lifter and a bouncer for years, so all the punishment I put my body through was really taking it's toll. After my sessions with Louie it was like hitting the reset button on my body.
I really like the fact that he takes his time to listen to you to find out what you want and will take the time to focus on any areas that really need it.
I would highly recommend Louie and Impact Massage and Bodywork to everyone."

"I have been a client of Louis for a year now. He is by far the best massage therapist I in the Twin Cities & I have tried a long list of them. I have degenerative disc disease as well as a herniated disc from a previous injury. Louis makes me feel good as new when I leave there & keeps me moving. Before my regular massages I was full of pain, stiffness and relied on pain meds to get me through-not any more! If you are looking for a great massage therapist who truly cares about his clients & providing them with top notch service you should check out Louis. I promise you won't be disappointed!"

Juliana gives a great massage. Not only is the pressure on point, but she has a kind soul - which makes the experience even more relaxing."
