Hank Gundlach

My name is Hank Gundlach. I’m a 56 years old financial advisor and have been working with Nitasha for the past nine months. When I began working with Nitasha, my goal was to lose approximately 50 lbs and achieve general fitness appropriate to my age. So far I’ve been successful in losing 30 lbs and getting back into a wardrobe I haven’t worn in several years. Nitasha has been wonderful in helping me develop realistic long and short-term goals, develop a healthy, nutritional diet plan, and provided a training regime adapted to my specific needs. I’ve offered her many challenges over the months due to aging issues, but she has been incredible in finding ways to keep our program on track by working around these problems as they occurred. She is someone who truly cares about helping people be the best they can be and is as much of a cheerleader and coach as she is a trainer. I’ve also had the opportunity to use her skills as a massage therapist as well, and she is without peer. I’ve used personal trainers in the past. Some of them have been very good. The difference with Nitasha is that she is someone you’d want in the foxhole with you. She has tremendous skills and just as great powers of observation. She can see what’s working for you and what is not, and adapts. Her warm personality and perceptive spirit makes you want to keep on track and stay motivated. We all know the ultimate work is up to us, but we also need to have people in our corner. Nitasha is someone you want to have in your corner. Good success!


That word sounds so religious, but considering the miraculous changes that happened during our 8 months of personal fitness training, I’d say it is appropriate! I want to thank you for the instruction on the gym equipment at my job, nutrition counseling and the supervision and guidance of the terrific exercise program you specially developed for me. When we began I had minimal flexibility and joint pain. I was overweight and out of shape. Now, I am stronger, more flexible and trimmer. I have lost over 10 lbs., and have met goals that I wanted to meet before I turned 55! I no longer cringe when I look in the mirror. My clothes aren’t snug. I am healthier and happier. I exercise on my own confidently. Thank you. Your miracle child, Kathy


After many years of dealing with the downside of fibromyalgia and other health issues I have finally found something that actually improved my physical wellbeing. That is Nitasha and her massage skills! I’ve tried physical therapy and medical options, but none with much success. I have been coming to Nitasha consistently for 8 months and she has given me relief from the constant knots and pains that have plagued my muscles. I really didn’t think I would find anything that would improve my situation, until now. She seems to know when to push a little harder and when to be more gentle. It’s hard to find someone kind, perceptive, upbeat and intelligent. If these are important qualities to you you’ve found the right person to work with.


I am a “40ish” local health club owner and I have worked with many trainers and massage therapists. Nitasha’s skills as a trainer go beyond simply improving your appearance. She incorporates stretching and corrective exercises into my weekly training which has helped me to recruit muscles that had been restricted and immobile. I now enjoy a better physique and get bi weekly massages to relieve the pain and stress of my demanding lifestyle. She is truly gifted as both a massage therapist and trainer.

My journey began after August 2003 when my life as I knew it would cease to exist because of a failed total hip replacement surgery. My surgeon placed parts in my body that were too large and the cup in an incorrect position which all resulted in a leg 3/4″ longer than the other one. This created multiple problems, such as, Piriformis Syndrome, Meralgia Paresthetica, Bursitis, and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, and many more all accompanied with much pain. It took 6 months to find an orthopedic surgeon that would completely redo another total hip replacement surgery. My second surgeon corrected the size of the parts but could not reposition the cup so when I walk my body still twists and my leg flares out which created many problems walking, sitting and standing too long. I have been told I would be using my cane for the rest of my life. All of the above kept me partially bedridden for over two years. I had been sent to different physical therapists and none had the skills and knowledge until my dad discovered Nitasha and to date I have been in massage therapy with her for approximately one year and will probably need to continue the rest of my life. Nitasha has been gifted far above your average massage therapist with amazing skills and the confidence to change your life. Nitasha really cares about your progress and offers many solutions to make your life more pain free and complete. I would recommend Nitasha to anyone seeking to find a skilled and knowledgeable massage therapist in your journey to see amazing results. After receiving massage therapy from Nitasha, I have learned so much about my body and my muscle structure, how different muscle group work in relationship to my complete body. I can now accomplish more every day tasks that most people take for granted.

When I came to Nitasha I was experiencing lower back pain. I was referred by my doctor to see Nitasha. I was experiencing leg numbness and pain in my lumbar area. Nitasha found the source within minutes of touching me and within 90 minutes I felt like a new woman. The pain was gone!

I have lived in the DC Metro area for 25 years and have used over 30 local massage therapists. 10 years ago I was referred to Nitasha and I can honestly say that she is the best I have found, I have been using her regularly ever since.

Tasha is the best trainer out there. She has really helped me enjoy working out and eatingĀ better to take care of myself. I would recommend her to anyone.

Nitasha is one of the best, most gifted massage therapists I have ever encountered. She has an uncanny sense of how to work on body stresses and achieve marvelous results. She is passionate about her calling, and I have considered myself very fortunate to schedule sessions. In addition, she has a deep commitment to the well being of her clients, and this is obvious from the first appointment onward. She is a leader in the many fields she has taken on, including massage therapy, weight loss counseling, and personal training. Highly recommended!
