Massage Therapist
“I have been practicing massage therapy for twelve years. I graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Westport, Connecticut and am licensed in New York and Connecticut, as well as nationally certified. I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (www.amtamassage.org). I am available for house calls through appointment. My training is based in Swedish massage, but various modalities-- particularly energy work-- like Reiki, Shiatsu acupressure, somatic release and Cranio Sacral therapy, are incorporated into a basic 60- or 90-minute massage. I am certified in the Usui Reiki System, levels I and II..
