Neuromuscular therapy by Lizz Pugh has been a cornerstone of my program to overcome disabling chronic migraine headaches. I suffered migraines that lasted days and sometimes weeks despite powerful migraine suppression medicine prescribed by my neurologist. I began seeing a chiropractor who referred me to Lizz and I had improvement within the first few visits. Over the past two months I have stopped taking migraine suppression medication, have only had one relatively minor migraine, and I feel as though I have been given my life back. Lizz is a true professional and a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge about the body and healing. In addition to her highly effective hands-on therapy, Lizz developed a custom program of exercises and self-massage to speed my recovery between sessions. I highly recommend Lizz as a key resource to any migraine sufferers. ~ Ray Hogan
I have been undergoing massage therapy for years now to relieve chronic neck pain, muscle aches, and stress. Being a student and a trainer can bring discomfort to the body, especially the posture. Lizz is, hands down, the best therapist I’ve had. Not only is she a therapist, but Neuromuscular Therapist, which treats a diverse field of clients (physiotherapy, sports therapy, rehab, to name a few). My range of motion, stress levels, and overall quality of life has improved tremendously thanks to Lizz. As a personal trainer, I love implementing her easy to follow stretches/techniques on our clients. If you’re looking to improve your workout, or just feel better in general, please do yourself a favor and see Lizz. ~ Steven Falconetti, NSCA-CPT
If your goal is to improve your posture, reduce your muscular pain, and learn how your body functions in day to day living, Lizz Pugh is the person to talk to. ~ Dale Kuehne. A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer, C.H.E.K Institute Certified Golf Conditioning Specialist, B.S. Fitness and Wellness.
I can count the number of practitioners on one hand whom I have either met or worked with over many years that have the scope and depth of knowledge, training and high level of skill that Lizz possesses. Superior patient care and education are two specialized skill sets in and of themselves, but Lizz has mastered the art and science of providing the best of both to those in her care. It is a pleasure and honor to be a colleague of hers. Dr. Peter Goldberg, Acupuncture Physician
Thank you to Lizz Pugh she taped me today with the Rock tape and my big baby belly is so much easier to move around with now. Thank you Lizz!!! ~Heather Andrews
Lovely.. attentive.. professional! I had a cast on my leg during my massage with Lizz due to a broken foot, she knew just how to accommodate to make me comfortable and addressed the aches and pains I’ve developed since my injury. Relaxing and healing at the same time. ~Christina Holmes
Lizz helped to guide me through my chronic pain to assist me in making the correct decisions to seek help for my particular body issues. She has expertise to find the source of the problem and uses many modalities to find what works best for each individual. Thank you Lizz! ~Sally Ullman
Meeting Lizz was a dream come true for me.
I have had massage therapy for many years with others, but still had many issues preventing me from doing the things I really love.
My main problem was groin/hip pain, forcing me to use a cane at times. After the first session with Lizz, the relief my body felt was amazing. After my initial exam, she immediately had a plan for me & she knew exactly what kind of therapy and exercise I would need. The results I feel are remarkable and I am now feeling better than I have in years. I feel I have my life back on track.
It is apparent that Lizz is truly dedicated to her profession and devoted to her client.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of enhancing their quality of life, make an appointment today. Your body will thank you. ~Suzanne Kagan
When I went to Lakewood Ranch Medical Message, my shoulder and elbows were hurting from a golf injury. I had trouble sleeping and felt sore all the time. It was very disturbing since I was in Florida and wanted to play golf 4-5 times a week.
From the outset, Lizz was highly professional and helped me tremendously. The evaluation session was very informative and provided me some great insights on the issues I was facing. She was engaged in helping me and suggested very excellent exercises.
I appreciated the follow up to the three sessions that I had. After each session, she sent me a summary of the exercises and suggestions that she made. She wants the best for her patients and I felt engaged in the process and was educated on how to pursue my own rehabilitation. I now feel rehabilitated and on the road to complete recovery after three sessions and follow up exercises,
Lizz is very competent, knowledgeable and caring while providing excellent level of services. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone who needs preventive and curative care. ~Jean-Guy Vienneau
I have worked with Lizz in multiple capacities. She is an extremely knowledgeable and an excellent Healthcare provider. I would and have recommended her services and talents to anyone and everyone. ~Dr. Geoffrey Sherman D.O.M.
Over the course of my wife’s medical massage treatment Lizz showed me things to do at home to help her. This helped dramatically reduce her pain. Lizz is not only a great healer, she’s a great educator, and I can’t recommend her enough. ~Patrick Songy
She is not about the fluff. She is there to solve muscular problems! I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for relief and relaxation. ~Samantha Barton
Second Visit: Lizz’s knowledge, and attention to her client’s individual needs provide a service I have never had the pleasure of experiencing. She asked detailed questions which enabled her to formulate a treatment plan that was executed with the utmost professionalism and care. I noticed a difference in my neck and back discomfort almost immediately and instead of it coming back quickly, which is often the case after other massages, it stayed away due to the exercises she taught me. I highly recommend Lizz Pugh ~Shana Rosenthal First Visit: I am so lucky to have found Lizz Pugh. Her professionalism and depth of knowledge extends far beyond any other massage experience I have ever had. Lizz absolutely made it her mission to understand what I wanted to achieve and then formulated a treatment plan based on what she can do with her amazing hands and then took time to teach me some exercises that I can do to enhance the pain relief in-between sessions. I cannot recommend her highly enough. ~Shana Rosenthal
As an athletic HVAC contractor, I have to be limber and mobile. After a grueling summer, I was neither. I asked Lizz to assess me and put a plan together which not only would help me, but teach me to help myself. She has been not only keenly aware and knowledgeable, but also a wonderful teacher. She has even taught my staff important posture techniques and pitfalls; things that we do everyday which can make us “sick” or “healthy” as we choose. She is a “hands-on” professional who cares about her clients and her attention to detail is phenomenal! I recommend Lizz Pugh as someone you should engage and employ when your body isn’t moving the way you think it should. ~Mike Zeppi
Thank you Lizz for your EXCELLENCE in medical massage and for sharing your knowledge and your gift! ~Karen Conkel
A HUGH shout out to Ms. Lizz! She is amazing! It was so refreshing to receive a treatment by someone who took the time to actually go over your concerns and needs. She quickly was aware of what I needed to improve my overall well being just by noticing the way I hold my posture! Lizz is very knowledgeable and shared her knowledge with me at the end of my treatment to educate me on the anatomy of where she worked on me and why. What a professional! TRULY! After my first session I noticed a difference in my breathing patterns and posture! Thank you Lizz for healing me! I look forward to standing treatments with you! ~Barbara Hendrix
I highly recommend Lizz to anyone with a physical ailment, large or small. She has tremendous empathy and healing skills. ~Jim D.
I hired Lizz to help me with a shoulder issue. She takes your concern seriously and creates ways to actually help your body heal itself. She takes every minute detail into account, from an ergonomical stand point to doing stretches at home along with her theraputic massage techniques she performs on your areas of concern. I would recommend her to anyone with any type of muscular issue or pain. She will get to the core of the problem and help you in any way she possibly can until the problem has been corrected or healed itself. ~Becky Egan
Being a personal trainer I have worked with a lot of massage therapists…Lizz is the most detailed I have ever worked with…really finding those problem spots ( for me my shoulders) and giving a massage of great quality. She takes her time and has great integrity. Thank you Lizz and I’m so grateful I found a great massage therapist in this area! ~Tomasin Marshall
Lizz is very professional, and very good at what she does. I had a treatment from her after a marathon, and I was in heaven. ~Allison Levy
Just had the most relaxing, educational session with Lizz Pugh. I told her my stress was in my neck and she worked so hard to relieve it. She also discussed ways to prevent it from happening again..Do not wait any longer, make an appointment with her now..You will be so glad you did.. ~Phyllis Dobbins

Had the best massage ever from Lizz and was able to “catch my breath” and let go of tension and holding. Lizz’ deep presence, knowledge and experience create a safe place for healing. ~Jacqueline Riker, LMT, CST
Lizz is amazing! She has been working with my husband on his upper back and posture problems, and after only a few weeks, his upper back has lost the stoop it had developed, and began to stand at the 6 foot 3 he is. She has also worked near miracles on my work-related shoulder injury. Our whole family has been improved by the time she has spent with us. ~Jasmine Rothgeb
Whether you need relief from a specific pain or disease, or just need a mature, intelligent therapist you can count on- Go See Lizz!! She will listen to you and your body ~Lisea Julien
How can I express my gratitude for not only the gentle touch of hands on my taut muscles, but the gentle touch of spirit to spirit? Healing is so much more than a skilled practitioner. It is when one heart reaches to another and genuinely cares for the person in pain. Thank you, Lizz, for being that person with the special gentle touch in body, soul, and spirit. ~Dr. Carolyn L. Hilt
Wow–let’s talk about results. I started this adventure with a badly swollen foot, ankle, and leg. After a series of massages with Lizz I have greatly reduced swelling and increased mobility. Will I ever give her up? Absolutely not! ~Jeanne Slattery
After having been diagnosed with TMJ dysfunction, I decided to do some research, as I just didn’t know how to make it better. I read a lot about it on the Internet and decided the best thing for me was to search for a massage therapist who specialized in TMJ massage in Sarasota.
I looked through the yellow pages and then went back to the Internet and that’s when Lizz’s site surfaced. I contacted Lizz and we made an appointment.
Lizz spent 90 minutes working with the muscles in my mouth and jaw. I started to feel the tightness leave my jaw almost immediately. The next appointment was for Lizz to instruct me on how to do my own massages for my jaw
I’m able to open my mouth 30mm as compared to 20mm a few weeks ago. The pain is much less intense and I’m now able to eat soft foods. Because I have other issues, I will continue to see Lizz and work on those problem areas. I cannot stress enough just how much Lizz has helped me and I would recommend her without reservation. ~Linda Reeser, Nokomis, FL
I am an active person with a very busy life. While training for the human combat chess match for the Sarasota Medieval Fair, I was in two minor car wrecks within a very short time. Luckily my injuries were minor and only caused tension in my muscles. I had a headache that lasted three days. It would have lasted longer if not for Lizz and her skills with deep tissue and relaxation. Have you ever had a 90 minute massage? What about Three in a row? It can be a truly transitional experience if you’re stressed and in pain. Thank you Lizz, you’re the best! ~Wendy Stoddard
I came to Lizz Pugh with a massive amount of problems. A car accident left me with herniated discs, nerve damage, and extreme chronic pain in my neck. Over the past year I have seen physical therapists, surgeons, chiropractors, and family doctors. Although they all helped in certain ways, the pain never went away.
The first two times I came to see Lizz she focused on the muscles in my face and neck. All these muscles that were affected by the whiplash were never even addressed by the other practicioners. I got almost instant relief just from when Lizz worked on the muscles inside of my mouth. She found quite a few places that had referred pain in the places where my headaches were the worst. Relieving that pressure has caused fewer headaches. Lizz’s level of expertise gave me something that I haven’t felt in a long, long time; the feeling of sweet relief. ~Vanessa S, Esthetician
As a dental hygienist, I know that the most important tools I use during the day are my wrists and hands. Seeing Lizz on a weekly basis has helped me reduce the aches and pains from being in awkward positions most of the day. Not only that, I also get to relax and have an hour of “me” time. As a mother and wife, I can’t tell you how much it means to be nurtured and not have any demands, even for that short bit of time! ~Michelle Idsardi
