“As far as I'm concerned, massage is one of life's greatest gifts. When I moved to NYC back in '93, never would have I imagined I'd switch to a career in massage therapy. I, like most people, thought Arizona or New Mexico would be the obvious choice. But in a city as stressful as New York, that old saying "Necessity is the Mother of Invention" could have never been more true! I made the switch from corporate America, and at 14 years into my practice, I couldn't be happier!
“You are stressed and have no time for vacation. There is a burning sensation in your neck, shoulders and upper back. When you get out of a chair, your lower back is stiff and you feel a twinge. The tension creeps up your neck and gives you headaches. Massages are nice, but are not addressing the problem. You are slightly overweight which affects your back and re-establishes some of the pain you had years ago before the surgery. You know that the scar tissue was not properly treated. Knees are slightly painful. Conclusion: you need in depth bodywork!
