Massage Therapists in New York
“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.

I made the switch from corporate America, and at 14 years into my practice, I couldn't be happier!
