Massage Therapists in Ossining

Mark Schiffman, Massage Therapist  in Ossining
“With a degree from the Swedish Institute, I specialize in a number of techniques. Swedish massage employs firm but gentle pressure to improve circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation. Five-Element Shiatsu provides an Eastern perspective which emphasizes the flow of Qi, or energy, through the body. Shiatsu is an traditional, Japanese healing method and it means "finger pressure." Shiatsu utilizes acupressure points and stretching. It's a form of "touch manipulation," and is a safe and effective curing or preventative medicine that helps to balance a person's energy flow and strengthen vital organs.
