“Massage therapy doesn't just feel great. It can make a real difference in the lives of people suffering from pathologies ranging from chronic pain to depression. And the right therapist makes the difference. I am a professional, caring, and intuitive NYS licensed massage therapist with years of experience in many types of pathologies and goals, ranging from relaxation to pain alleviation from many soft tissue disorders. I utilize Shiatsu (Acupressure), Myofacial Work, Trigger Point, PNF, Thai stretches, Swedish, Energy Work, Craniosacral, and Reflexology to create a custom treatment for each client.
“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.
“My practice of ASIAN BODYWORK THERAPY, with Infrared LED Light Therapy, (please see website) helps people maintain or regain their health through physical manipulation and pressure. It is based on Zen Shiatsu, Zero Balancing, Myofascial Release, and CranioSacral Therapy. You wear loose, comfortable clothing and lie on a massage table placed over a Therapeutic Magnetic Grid. No oils are used. I notice where your tension is, where your weaknesses are and where you have the tendency toward illness. I pay special attention to problems associated with the neck and the back. Pain relief and freedom of movement is a priority.

“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. Through my experience with Anusara Yoga, Continuum, dance, and the Alexander Technique I've come to see the body as inherently changeable and deeply intelligent. My sessions aim to guide the client into a place of optimal alignment, so that body, mind, and spirit can work together with ease.
“The focus of my practice is to bring the client into a state of health and wellbeing and assist them in maintaining it through Massage Therapy.

Three years ago I took a systematic approach to transform my health and the two main modalities I used were Massage Therapy & Acupuncture. It is my goal to pass on my experience of healing to others in need.
