Parnisia Duckworth is my favorite massage therapist of all time. I’m a sport psychology consultant and I work with athletes daily. I’m also a former athlete with more than a few issues now that I am no longer competing. I competed for a long time and injuries in the end slowed me down. I met Parnisia, in Seattle. She brought me in and started working on a few of the areas that were giving me the most problems. It was a great massage. I’ve had sports massages since I was a teenager to help allow me to perform at my best. Parnisia is the best LMP I’ve ever worked with. She soon had me feeling better and of course this meant I was going to push my limits out on the field (I also am a coach). This led to both a hamstring and groin pull. Parnisia had me back on the field in a week, not the usual month of slowly being able to move about. Not only is Parnisia the best practitioner I’ve ever encountered, she is also the most knowledgeable. I wish she were still in the Seattle area to work with my athletes. Seattle’s loss is most certainly Atlanta’s advantage.

Parnisia Duckworth provides the best professional massage therapy experience that I have experienced. I am a photographer and fine-arts painter; between using my hands, arms and entire body every day, I need a serious and knowledgeable therapist. Parnisia is that therapist for me. I always refer her life-changing services to everyone looking for relief of tension, stress, or to those who want a pampered and healing experience.
She is worth every penny! Parnisia Duckworth is a true healer.

To all who read this I want you to know that if you need a Physical Therapist or a Massage Therapist there is no one better in Atlanta, maybe anywhere in the country than Parnisia Duckworth. How do I know this you ask? What makes me an expert on this subject, I will tell you.
In December of 2010 I was in a car accident on a Los Angeles Freeway, the car was totaled; yet I was the only one really injured, truly a miracle for the others in the car. The vehicle I was traveling in was both front and rear impacted. My right knee was driven into the dashboard and shoved back into my hip joint. My right groin and hip just would not improve from both a pain or mobility perspective. My injury got progressively worse over the next few months to the point where I could not put my leg into my pants without excruciating pain. I am talking a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I know a lot of people exaggerate their pain level, this was no exaggeration I could not lift my leg into the car without helping it with my hand. I couldn’t walk the dog, walk up stairs, walk with my wife, or go to the gym…nothing because it hurt so badly with every step. At this time I was in a very dark place with no light at the end of the tunnel. None of the doctors I saw could actually tell me what was wrong with my leg.
Thank GOD I met Nisi, that’s what I call her anyway. The relief didn’t happen right away, in fact, I was very discouraged that the pain would never go away, but with Nisi’s expert knowledge of my injury little by little she brought me back to a point where I could at least lift my leg into my pants, get in my car and walk again without excruciating pain. I credit Parnisia Duckworth with giving me my leg back. By-the-way, I spent lots of time prior to meeting Nisi with an Orthopedist who did nothing for me, in fact, when he didn’t know what else to do, he sent me to a pain management clinic.
Recently Nisi also came to my home to help with my wife’s back and shoulder pain, Nisi went above and beyond to make sure she did all she could to help with My wife’s problem. Time spent at my home was not an issue for Nisi. She really does care about all of her clients. She has a gift and if you are in need of pain or stress relief or just want a very relaxing experience I highly recommend you call and schedule an appointment with Nisi. You may regret it if you don’t but I guarantee you will be extremely satisfied if you do!
Nisi thank you so much for what you did for me. I need to schedule another appointment very, very soon.
Over the years I have had lower back issues, including surgery. I have
also had a number of massage therapists. I can say without equivocation that
Parnisia has given me the most relief, and been the most effective in
alleviating my pain and discomfort. I highly recommend Parnisia to you.

I met Parnisia in February 2011 during my Women On The Move training. I was captivated by her smile,energy and passion for massage therapy. Several months later I had my first injury, I contacted Parnisia and had my first sports massage. I will admit I was apprehensive, I had no idea what to expect since I was new to running and experiencing my first injury. Parnisia made me feel very relaxed and comfortable during my first session. When you have an injury sometimes you only need a few sessions and then other times you may need more. After my first injury and seeing Parnisia consistently through the injury it was amazing to see how sports massage helps in recovery and to know that I was in really good hands. Over the next few months I would see Parnisia regularly for another injury I sustained. Your sports massage therapist is like your hair stylist you see them ever 6 to 8 weeks and you build a relationship with your stylist and become friends. I feel Parnisia and I took our business relationship to another level and now I consider her my friend. In conclusion, if you are looking for a friendly, knowledgeable and professional sports massage therapist Parnisia is your lady!
While though Parnisia stands 5’feet tall and is petite in size she packs a punch in her massages so don’t let her tiny frame fool you.
Parnisia Duckworth is truly a blessing to humankind….
I was fortunate to meet Parnisia in 2004 on the college campus of Beulah Heights University where we studied together.
I will admit; I was a little concerned with the thought of having this young woman rubbing on me… that kind of thing was left to my wife in the privacy of our home.
With the encouragement of my wife, I agreed to the appointment. The experience was life changing, so life changing I booked a second appointment. My issue is this; I have suffered with stomach issues throughout my life having gone through several surgical procedures. However, after leaving those sessions, I have never felt better. The staff was very professional; the ambiance was very soothing.
I highly recommend the services of Parnisia. Not only is she a message therapist, she is what I call “PAP” Prophetic, Anointed and Professional. My wife has been to some of the more trendy upscale salons, and she prefers Parnisia Duckworth to them all. This young woman is and will be a blessing to all the clients she is connected.

Parnisia Duckworth truly has healing hands. Her remarkable ability to tune into the body allows her to create a treatment plan designed to meet the specific needs of each of her clients. Might I also add NOBODY can work a scapula the way she can! So whether you are suffering from frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries, neck pain, or constant headaches, Ms. “D” is definitely your girl.

After power-lifting for several years, my body had scar tissue and adhesions in the muscles that prevented me from full range of motion. For years, I couldn’t bend over to touch my toes. I have been to several massage therapists in attempt to break down the scar tissue. Parnisia is the first therapist that could penetrate deep into the muscles; while demonstrating a great understanding of the body. After several sessions focusing on the hamstrings I was able to improve my range of motion tremendously. I could even touch my toes again. Parnisia is awesome. I have recommended her services to friends, family and acquaintances. It is a pleasure working with Parnisia.
Parnisia Duckworth is a very good professional and has a very good business. I recommend
her to anyone who wants to be relieved from pain.

Excellent massage – through-and-through. She’d make people who had good blood circulation
claim their blood circulation jumped through the roof.

I have been to tens if not hundreds of therapists…the good and not so good… as an ex-athlete, now practicing attorney, I know pain. Ms. Duckworth has hands with ears and a touch that can only be measured like gold. Thank God she relocated to Atlanta.
