“"Richard DeVito has helped me beyond any expectation that I may have had before we started the work. As a result of the sessions, I have experienced a complete opening up and release of tension that I have had for years. Richard has been able to work on the adhesions that created the tightness I've had in my neck and shoulders. I no longer suffer from these symptoms and have much greater range of motion. Which has replaced the aches, and stiffness. I highly recommend Richard and I am most grateful for his work." Calvin Klein, designer
“Do you spend a large portion of each day in a seated position? I'm sure you do. It's hard to avoid these days, as computer work is so integrated in our daily lives. While sitting down is not the only thing that can cause trouble, it is still one of the most pervasive postures in modern civilizations that causes tremendous restrictions to form on your body - stiff neck and shoulders, tight lower back, hips, and hamstrings. These are all typical for someone who sits for most of the day.

“As a therapist, I enjoy being a part of a person's state of well being.I believe in the immediate and long term effects of massage in promoting relaxation, boosting immunity, increasing mobility and reducing fatigue. I have worked on a wide array of clients and based on that, I have concluded that no two clients have the same needs.Some prefer deep tissue, some like light and other like something in between.And that the connection between therapist and client is very strong and if treated with respect, can be very theraputic within itself.
“I specialize in pain management and injury prevention/rehabilitation. When there are restrictions such as knots or scar tissue in an area of soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia), those restrictions can cause pain and dysfunction throughout the body, not just at the pain site. An area that is too tight is more likely to tear without warning. Once you've injured an area, that area needs to be released so it can heal optimally. My work focuses on finding those areas of restriction and releasing them, allowing you to live your life pain-free and reducing your risk of injury.
“I specialize in advanced manual therapy, a gentle non-invasive hands-on approach that releases tensions to relieve pain and dysfunction or maintain overall health and wellbeing.

Each session alleviates restrictions to allow the entire body to flow towards seamless communication and better teamwork. The nervous and endocrine systems orchestrate more efficiently. Blood and lymph circulation are facilitated. All tissues relax, while they receive more oxygen, allowing for better nourishment and deeper detoxification. Manual therapy encompasses CranioSacral, Visceral Manipulation and brainwork. It originates from international osteopathic traditions.

“(Currently On Maternity Leave) I offer skilled therapeutic muscular and fascial bodywork to people seeking chronic or acute pain relief, relaxation, increased flexibility, or overall well-being.
