“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.
“The work I do is based on Chinese medicine, one of the oldest holistic healing traditions, and can address many different kinds of issues. Health, according to Chinese medicine, occurs when the "qi", or "vital energy", is moving smoothly and harmoniously through its pathways in the body. When this happens we experience a wonderful sense of well-being and connection in our lives. This can be felt on the physical level, pain management is one benefit, and also on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels, as the qi affects all aspects of our being.

“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!

“Massage as a therapeutic and restorative experience best describes the intention of my work. It involves the manipulation of soft-tissue to support the healing of your injuries and the elimination of chronic pain caused by the stress and bustle of modern life. My approach is patient, intuitive and specific-with the goal of creating ease and balance in your everyday activities. The benefits deepen when a trusting rapport develops between us over the course of ongoing sessions. This may lead to therapeutic changes that help to resolve deep-seated patterns of tension and pain, ultimately restoring your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
“My therapeutic massage is an integrative and effective melding of western massage science (Swedish) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).Your patient input enables me to engage you holistically and facilitate your health and healing by utilizing the combination of therapeutic techniques uniquely suited to your health needs, including accurate use of gentle and deep techniques. Patients find my approach is helpful for stress reduction & relaxation, improved mobility, sports prep & recovery, orthopedic & general injury recovery, muscle & back pain relief, improved circulation, headache & migraine symptom relief, and support for women's health (including certified pregnancy massage). I am also a level 2 certified Reiki practitioner.
“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 have excellent results with sciatica, migraines, TMJ, whiplash injury, anxiety/depression, insomnia, back/disc pain,sports injuries,digestive disorders, neurological disorders, gynecological issues and pelvic floor dysfunction.

In addition to muscular issues, I help clients who suffer from psychological conditions such as depression/anxiety, sleeplessness, and overall stress.

“I am a NY state Licensed Massage Therapist with a private practice in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Since graduating from the Swedish Institute in 1999 I've continued to expand my understanding of the workings of the body through the study of Zero Balancing, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and Prenatal Massage.
