Massage Therapists in New York
“I am dedicated to provide compassionate therapeutic massage for athletes, businessmen, Workweek Warriors, dancers, professional musicians, yogis and those practicing TM (Transcendental Meditation).
“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.

“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. But in a city as stressful as New York, that old saying "Necessity is the Mother of Invention" could have never been more true! I made the switch from corporate America, and at 14 years into my practice, I couldn't be happier!
