I’ve had many many massages over the years. But Joseph gives by far the best massage I’ve had. He applies the correct amount of pressure to relieve pain and stress. I look forward to having regular massage therapy with him.
Best massage therapist I’ve been to. Being a female, I was hesitant to have a male work on me, but males do have stronger hands which is what my body needs. Joe works the tension out of my muscles to where it is comfortable instead of being painful as he uses a different method than unlike any other therapist I’ve been to. Joe is a very caring person who has a lot of knowledge of ways to help our bodies. God has blessed me with more than a massage therapist.
I’m an avid power lifter and for years have experienced tightness in a range of muscles. Joe was able to get deep enough to release the tension and let me feel loose. Don’t be turned away by the unconventional setting, the man definitely knows what he’s doing. Before I was even thirty minutes in on my session I knew I’d be coming back. Joe is an excellent massage therapist. He’s down to earth and genuine. If you’re looking for a deep tissue massage he’s the man to go to. His years of experience and expertise in the field were very evident from the session I had with him and I’m definitely looking forward to more sessions in the future. Thank you, Joe! Hands From Heaven is definitely an appropriate name.
One of the best massagist I’ve EVER had! (I’d say the best but I’d make my own massagist back home jealous ;)) . Every year I come all the way from Europe to climb to the Red River Gorge and plan to have an appointment for Joseph! Highly recommended!
Joseph gave the best massage I’ve ever had! I was sore from my move and a bad ankle and was compensating, so my back was very tight. After one session it was feeling so much better. He also gave me some great recommendations for treatment of my ankle pain.
I am not super aware of what makes a good or bad massage but when I left, tension that had been in my back for MONTHS was gone. Super friendly and communicative. The apartment was a little hard to find but if you give him a call he’s more than welcome to help.
Best deep tissue massage I’ve ever had! Slightly unconventional setting but felt totally safe
I really enjoyed my massage from Joe! He was able to accommodate and get me in quickly. Worth every penny!
Joe is professional and and well versed in the practice if sports massage therapy. Very easy to set up an appointment and attentive to my ailments to put together a treatment to best meet my body's needs for healing. Thank you, Joe! Today was the first day in weeks that I could drive for more than a few minutes without being in pain.
When it comes to dealing with pain, you usually have to choose between someone who knows what they're doing, or someone who cares about you as a person. Joe is both. When I woke up this morning, I had so much tension in my neck that I couldn't function. Not only did he squeeze me in ahead of schedule, he then proceeded to use his considerable skill and experience to work loose what felt like a rubber band ball from under my shoulder blade. He makes you a part of the process in a comfortable and effective way. I would recommend Joe to anybody, for any reason.
By far the best massage around I've dealt with debilitating pain most of my adult life I have back problems knee problems neck issues and fibromyalgia a car accident two yrs ago just intensified all of my chronic pain so by far getting a massage from someone as experienced and well KNOWLEDGED about the body and correct points of interest to address the underlying problems I just can't express enough words or gratitude for the service and satisfaction I received along with such professionalism he is by far the best around the day of my session I felt so bad and in intense pain that the after effects that night which were that of calming relaxed euphoria that I just couldnt wait til my next session and i slept so good that evening and woke well rested something i hadn't done for many years i highly recommend anyone with pain conditions or those highly stressed or those involved in sports needing that relaxed body muscle conditioning to at least try this awesome experience once as you will be hooked thereafter it's the ultimate body healing experience thank you so much for your professionalism and knowledge and experience to help me control my pain issues i urge anyone to get that experience your body releases those much needed endorphins after and you feel like a new person you score the highest with me i hope everyone can do the same give him a try
Best massage around. Wish I could rate higher than 5 stars. I will never go anywhere else. Joe is the real deal. I’m already booking my next visit.
I live with a physical disability and use massage as a means of therapy. I have been massaged by countless massage therapists in my time and I can attest that Joe is among the best therapists that I have seen. He helps me immensely. He truly is gifted.
Joe is very professional..His hands not only put the work in his knowledge about the human body and they way can explain everything to you is an experience all in its own I will recommend him to anyone
New York’s loss is Lexington‘s gain!! Joe is in his own league of massage therapists. I had the best deep tissue work ever. You immediately notice Joe’s years of experience. He was thorough, very deep and I never felt rushed. I booked my next session before I left! He is by far, THE BEST!!
Joe did an awesome job with the massage. I found him last minute and he was able to squeeze me in. The massage wasn’t rushed and he asked for feedback to make sure I was okay.
Very professional and great prices
I'm a long-time back and shoulder pain sufferer. The only thing that has worked for me is deep -- really deep -- massage. Too often, I've been frustrated by massages that don't go deep enough. That's not the case with Joe. He has strong hands and knows how to use his body to bring the pressure I need. He's also big on communication, so he is open to hearing what you need. Joe is experienced and knows his craft. I highly recommend him.
I have fibromyalgia and was very sore. The massage was good with perfect pressure everywhere. I can move better now. I will be back for more massages.
Whether you have acute, chronic, or no pain at all I would recommend making an appointment! Joe is very knowledgeable and personable. Also, he seeks constant feedback to ensure that your session is completely enjoyable and tailored to your needs.
Great session, every time! Super deep and thorough! Doesn't leave any kinks :)
Joe is awesome! I’ve been to so many people and no one can ever do deep enough pressure on my back and neck but he did. He tailored the massage to exactly what I needed. Very professional! I won’t go to anyone else!
Joe is the best massage therapist I have experienced. I drive a lot, so shoulders, neck, and back are always in need of deep tissue work. Joe's expertise with deep tissue is why I go back as often as I can! I highly recommend Joe if you want to have the best massage in the Lexington area!
I went to joe for mother’s day for a 2hr deep tissue massage it was absolutely amazing I have gotten massagesby some of the best in Lexington KY i was a former student at the Lexington healing arts academy so I know all about massage and I can say I had never had a massage that amazing he is highly recommended in my book I won’t go to anyone else and haven’t sence then if you haven’t tried him you must!!! This is a true massage he gives your body new life outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Extremely effective therapist. I’ve had recurring neck and back issues. Been to other therapists and have gotten some good results but Joe knows his business. His deep tissue massages have helped me tremendously. I was pain free after the first visit for several weeks but injured my neck again working out. He very effectively provided the professional therapy I needed both times. I couldn’t not recommend him more highly.
Had a couple massage sessions prior to my session with Joe. None compared to the quality of the massage provided and the knowledge Joe shared about dealing with my lower back and hip issues. Highly recomended.
I've had many massages over the years by many different therapists and Joe ranks at the top. His knowledge and talent for bodywork are very apparent as soon as he goes to work. That said, he consistently requests feedback in order to make the session as effective as possible. "Hands from Heaven" is an appropriate name for his practice -- he absolutely does have a gift with regard to his abilities.
I have had many massages in my life. This deep tissue massage was the most therapeutic one I have ever had. Joseph is an amazing and talented massage therapist. I highly recommend him.
Surpurb experence, very professional and skilled practitioner who will leave you feeling refreshed and your body feeling relieved. Don’t hesitate just book him now!
Joe was by far the best massage therapist I've ever had! I've had years or chiropractic experience and some massage, but never gotten a therapist to know exactly where I need help. Highly, highly recommend Joe! Sincerely...
Best deep tissue I’ve ever had. Not enough stars for this guy!
As other reviewers have said...Joseph is the best massage therapist I have ever had...and I've had some really good ones. It does take caring, sensitive and strong hands to go deep when needed. in a few visits Joseph has targeted decades of built-up stress in my neck, shoulders and back. At one point I went to the emergency room thinking I was having a heart attack from pain running across my chest and down my left arm. After the whole stress test cardiology evaluation; my heart was fine...decades of built-up stress was the problem.. Tension in my neck was sending this pain down my chest, shoulder, and left arm. Joseph found those knot points and went as far as he thought he should in each session...he obviously knew what he was doing because after each session I was so much better with minimal trauma pain from his very deep work. Joseph is very warm, caring, friendly, professional, and also offers good counsel for your situation...Very fortunate to have him in Lexington, ky.
It’s pretty hard to add to all the wonderful things other clients have said about Joe, because they’re all so true. I’m still in shock of how amazing of an experience I had. 1) he is very professional and personable 2) he really knows what he is doing and I appreciate that he checked in with me throughout and let me know briefly what he was about to do next 3) this guy has the strongest hands! They’re AMAZING! I’m still in that post-massage daze and it’s been eight hours since our session. After today, there is no way I can go to someone else ever again. He is just simply the BEST. He is able to feel exactly where the tension, tightness, and knots are and works them away while still giving an enjoyable and relaxing experience. I can not recommend him enough.
I had been having serious problems with chronic hip pain, lower back pain, neck pain, vertigo, etc. due to muscular/skeletal imbalance and had been to every type of doctor imaginable along with physical therapists and many chiropractors. Found Hands from Heaven online and decided to give them a try. Joe came to my home and was extremely professional and friendly. I was really interested in a therapeutic, deep tissue massage and trigger point release. As he began to massage, I realized that he knew exactly which muscles to focus on. At one point, I literally felt a trigger point in a hamstring "dissolve" beneath his fingers. After the first massage, I had a standing appointment with Joe every week. I'm not completely healed, but Joe's massages definitely helped. Joe is a one-of-a-kind massage therapist who is truly dedicated to healing and helping people. He is hands-down the best massage therapist I have ever been to and I miss his massages (and Joe too!) so much since he moved to Lexington.
One of the most profound, professional and caring individuals that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am a 100% service connected Combat Veteran. I served four years as a United States Airborne Infantryman in the Army and had sustained multiple injuries from rigorous exercise and a parachuting accident during my time in service. When doctors left me with no hope and only with the options of invasive surgery and medications I felt lost and in despair. In 2013 I was stationed in Italy and knew that my time in the military was near an end and that I would be returning home soon to the United States. I researched and found Joseph Weger at Hands From Heaven Massage half the world away and the rest is history. His energy and the amount of care and concern that he puts forth for his clients is unsurpassed. He was rated one of the top massage therapists in New York City and had accredited articles written about him in several prominent magazines. I was so fortunate and blessed to find Joseph Weger in Lexington, Kentucky. Joseph Weger at Hands From Heaven massage has not only been one of the best therapists that I have worked with but has become a lifelong friend and ally in the fight to live a healthy and prosperous life. Thank you Joe for the amount of time and energy that you've invested in my life. My kindest regards, Wes R.
When your a wife, mother, and business owner times can be hectic. one of my favorite treats is to book a session with Joe. He understands my body and never fails to relax me through a exquisite full body massage. He is professional and knowledgeable in the field of massage therapy and by the end had me totally relaxed as i drifted away for a while free of kids, husband, and employees. it was truly a trip to heaven which i regularly take at least 2x a month. : ) i highly suggest his prices cant be beat and location is +. BOOK YOURS TODAY
I've had the pleasure to experience several massage sessions and i have to say that i was thoroughly impressed with both the professional and personal massage that i received. My session was catered to my needs all while being executed with complete care and attention to my muscles and my body's response. I have traveled around the world to places like Japan, Finland, Sweden as an entertainer so i am no stranger to massage therapy and I have to say that Hands from Heaven is at the top of my list and i recommend Him to all my friends and family for a truly divine encounter !
OMG! i am a married professional with 3 kids and i am constantly on the go. i came across Joe on the internet and was skeptical in the begining. I have to say that the amount of professionalism and quality of his knowledge in massage therapy was phenomenal! the ambiance was relaxing not to include his interaction with the needs of my muscles was TRULY heaven. The prices are extremely fair and the location was perfect. For anyone looking for a TOP NOTCH masseur DO NOT HESITATE to book with Joe.
One of the best massages I've ever had! As a result of sports and work related injuries over the years I’ve needed surgery to be rehabilitated. Joseph, a true professional, dedicated to his gift, is a healer. Hands from Heaven!!!
I've had MANY massages and Joe delivers an amazing experience unlike any other. I tend to favor a really deep tissue and Joe intuitively knew exactly were my problem spots were, where to go deep and where to go slightly lighter. I suffer from autoimmune and Joe was instrumental in helping my range of motion in muscles that have been tightening up. I highly recommend Joe to anyone who's looking for a relaxing and professional massage and look forward to referring him to my family and friends. Thanks, Joe!
Hands Down the Best Massage in Lexington! I have used Joe on several occasions when I have been in town. He has done wonders for me each and every time I have seen him. My business brings me to the area several times a year and I make sure to book an appointment with him as soon as I book my flight. I just came back from seeing him again and cannot give enough praise for the work he does. His rates are reasonable and I have found him to be the best massage therapist in Lexington Kentucky or any other city for that I have been to. Just wish he were closer to where I am so that I could see him on a more regular basis.
Joe provided a liberating massage for pent up tensions and tight knots. He is the best massage therapist I have ever had.
Healing Mg Massage
Joe was superb. His full body technique, even using the power of his own body provided a completely release of tension. He worked intensively on my shoulders and lower back. Thanks Joe, for one of the best massages I’ve ever had.
One of the very best massages I’ve had! Highly recommend!!!!!!
Straight up and very honest.
Great guy, very honest, very professional, and compassionate. Done a great job on my lower back, hips, and legs. Will do anything is power to help you get better. Highly recommend him.
Great work, right where I needed it!
I am a massage therapist but no longer practice. I was in great need of a deep tissue massage and quick! I called all around town on a Saturday morning, knowing it was unlikely to get in with someone that day. Much less to have the deep work done that I needed. He was very professional, did exactly what I asked and needed, and helped to save my day! My pain was gone and I am a happy camper now! Give him a try!
I’ve suffered from chronic shoulder pain for several years after a sporting injury. After 2 sessions with Joe, the pain is 75% better and it is SUCH a relief! I can’t thank him enough for what I can only describe as a miracle!!
I love Joe! If you’re body aches like mine, go see him! After he worked on me for the first time, I didn’t have to see him again for 4 months. I played national volleyball for 11 years and even though it was the best time of my life, those years are definitely catching up with me. My body hurts all the time and Joe is the only person who can really help me out. His prices aren’t too bad either.
Real deep tissue!
I love how thorough he is with each segment of the body. He does a tremendous job of getting all the kinks out! I definitely want a monthly session :)
This guy is the real deal. I’ve had many massages all over the planet and this guy actually got the pestering kink out. Others provided temporary relief but this is different. Very clean and professional yet personal enough to make everything comfortable. Absolutely no BS. Highly recommended by a long time sufferer of middle back and neck discomfort. This will be the only place I go in Lexington for massage.
Everything You’ve Heard Is True
Before I get to the actual massage, let me say something about Mr. Weger himself. He’s a great person from the moment you meet him. Very engaging and personable, just a pleasure to be around for two hours. Now for the massage, I really don’t call my sessions massage, I call them “bodywork.” While they are relaxing and enjoyable, I get work done so that I can continue my active lifestyle. A couple of injuries over the years have haunted me from time to time, and bodywork helps to keep them down a bit. Mr. Weger was instantly able to find areas that give me trouble and he addressed them thoroughly. I also appreciated that he wants feedback from me the client (pressure, temperature, overall comfort), some massage therapist just try to get the work done as quick as possible without concern or interest in the client. Not so with Mr. Weger, he’s focused on YOUR session. As someone who is not very comfortable with bodywork per se, I am completely comfortable with Mr. Weger. So I highly recommend him for either a relaxing massage, or a session that keeps you in the game. Finally, I will definitely be booking again very soon.
Great rubdown very professional.
knowledgeable and professional
Joe is awesome! I’ve been to so many people and no one can ever do deep enough pressure on my back and neck but he did. He tailored the massage to exactly what I needed. Very professional! I won’t go to anyone’s else!

My search is over

Great experience! I had a knot in my neck for months and have seen lots of massage therapist in Lexington. Joeseph was, by far, the BEST!
Top notch,, A definite cut above the rest.
I've suffered from chronic back pain, as a result from a severe Auto mobile accident for many years,, I've Been to chiropractors, pain specialists, and of course message therapists, and I I must say that not only massage but Joseph Weger has been by far the complete answer to my prayers and solution to my problem's,, From Chiropractic to medicated pain specialist,, I received a longer and more healing effect from Joe's massage abilities than any other Avenue of treatment, I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.
The BEST of the BEST
Last time I had your fantastic massage I was in California. I’m now in Arizona and pray that you visit soon. Your hands are truly a gift from GOD!!!! You’re gift of healing is absolutely incredible. You are an amazing message therapist Joseph

Professional and effective
Joe was personable and professional. After a deep tissue session, I noticed increased flexibility and decreased pain in my shoulder.
Joe was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and adjusted not only when instructed but as my body told him to. Very comfortable setting and relaxing.
Outstanding massage in Lexington, Kentucky
I have been to more massage therapists than I can count since I received my first massage over thirty years ago, and Joe is one of the best. He is friendly, courteous and professional in every respect. His hours are also more flexible than the great majority of practitioners. My experience has been that four out of five massage therapists are adequate, but unremarkable; Joe will make you feel good for days after your appointment. I highly recommend him; you will most likely become a regular client.
The Best Massage Ever!
HIGH QUALITY SERVICE PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY
I was fortunate to have found Joe Weger in the late 90's after reading a review about him in the New York Post. He is absolutely the best massage therapist I every had treatment with (and I've been having massages for 40 years now!)...as he always got out knots others leave behind, and finished his massage leaving me with a profound sense of deep relaxation enabling me to sleep a whole lot better. I really miss him now he's living in Kentucky, and wish him well. I heartily recommend him to everyone!
Joe, Is a very great with his massage. works several areas to release tension in all areas. total hands on from the time you arrive to you leave ...very polite and specific to trouble areas.
very knowledgeable ,respectful and healing therapist
very knowledgeable ,respectful and healing therapist .I was in an auto accident in 2007 resulting in a lower back and neck surgery that tend to flare up in pain and spams often. When you have conditions like this its had to find a massage Therapist they are either too afraid to massage with enough pressure or go at it to aggressively leaving in a fix the next day not being able to function . Joe listens and has the knowledge to access your situation and the experience to back it up. cant praise him enough He's Great !
Amazing experience and Wonderful results!
Hands Down the Best Massage in Lexington!

Just wish he were closer to where I am so that I could see him on a more regular basis.
The best massages I have ever had!
I met Joe Weger a couple of years ago and after the first massage I knew I had found exactly what I had been looking for. Joe has amazing hands and he knows what needs to be done to my body each time I have a massage. I always go for at least 90 minutes each time because I want a masseur who has plenty of time to do his job. Joe does that and more, and I feel very fortunate that he has the time for me. I am 67 years old and I have had many massages in my life, but I can't recommend anyone who comes close to Joe. He is always ready to deal with whatever aches and pains I bring to him with a big smile on his face. I value him as my masseur as well as my friend.
The techniques Joe uses are amazing. Everytime I leave a therapy session I defenitly feel brand new and relieved from the pain I was feeling...Great work Joe your awesome and got it down to a science!!!
Highest of quality and professionalism
Joe is amazing!!!! I have lived all over the United States and no one compares to him! He is professional and will listen to your exact needs. He is knowledgeable and will work to alleviate your aches/pains. I highly recommend him as a massage therapist!
BEST massage and Gift to Your Wellbeing!
Hands from Heaven is such a gift! More than a massage...this body work will put you in a totally free space of having your body in perfect balance. Awesome...Amazing! What more can I say?
A Thoroughly Good Massage
I've recently returned to scheduling massages with Joe after spending a couple of years at a job outside the country. I had forgotten how good he is and how good he can make you feel. He offers deep tissue and Swedish massage, both of which relieves tension and leaves you completely relaxed. It's obvious that he enjoys his work, and I always leave feeling well cared for. He's also very easy to get in touch with, and he's very accommodating with my schedule. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a good thorough massage.
The Name Says It All
Joseph has provided several exceptional massages for me, focussing on deep tissue, thus helping to relieve my back and neck discomfort. He really knows his profession, and goes over and above to diagnose specific muscle issues. Then goes right to the source to help elliviate issues. He is renowned for his talent, and I would highly recommend his services. I've recently moved from Lexington to SW Florida, but will continue to seek out Joseph when in town.
Over the years I have required therapeutic massage on a regular basis. Joseph is clearly the best massage therapist I have had in over 20 years. He is knowledgeable confident yet able to adapt to my specific needs. I would recommend him to anyone.
True professional masseur
I have been to Joe many times and have never been disappointed. It is very difficult to find someone who consistently provides the proper massage for your specific problem. I have tried so many. Joe has magic hands that somehow finds my most painful area and works it out. Thankful for his service.
