Massage Therapists in New York
“As an LMT practicing in Manhattan for over a decade, Iím honored too have many clients keep coming back. Hereís what a few of them say: 'I liked his energy and gentleness of spirit. After listening to my description of where I felt tension on my body, Kenn proceeded to explore and unlock pockets of tension that I had been carrying for some time. I found him to be spiritually attuned, well-versed in a wide range of massage techniques, tenacious in getting tension points to release, and very considerate of his clientís well being.'

“I am a licensed massage therapist, occupational therapist, and certified craniosacral therapist with a diverse background in the areas of health and wellness. I use an integrative approach that incorporates various forms of bodywork and manual therapies including: myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and other neuromuscular techniques. I specialize in chronic pain, stress related disorders, and wellness.
“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've been a licensed massage therapist and esthetician for 16 yrs well-versed in swedish, deeptissue, shiatsu, craniosacral, reiki, and prenatal massage as well as clinical and holistic facials, waxing, body polish exfoliations, cellulite treatments, reflexology, and ear candling. My client list includes working executives, housewives, students, celebrities, and professional athletes. Many of my clients I have had for 10+ years!
“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!

No oils are used. I notice where your tension is, where your strengths and weaknesses are and where you have the tendency toward illness.
