Swedish * Deep Tissue * Prenatal MassageMyofascial Release * Trigger Point Release * Polarity Therapy
I am a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist, insured member of the American Massage Therapy Association and graduate of The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences. I have also been a touring musician within the past 18 years and, through the years, come to realize the preventative/protective value and long-term benefits of self-care and massage.
My experience ranges from infants & pregnant women to seniors; athletes suffering from MS to family members of children with cancer; as well as spa clients to formerly homeless individuals with psychiatric disabilities. I specialize in focusing on areas affected by overuse and repetitive strain injuries while considering the emotional aspects involved in retention and release. I utilize a combination of western and eastern modalities that include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Release, Aromatherapy and Polarity Therapy (energy work). I am certified in Prenatal & Postpartum massage through Carole Osborne with advanced education in Infant massage & training for parents/caregivers through Susanrachel Condon. I have also received certification in the Strenta Method of Medical Massage with Janine Strenta & specialized training on The Iliopsoas with Dr. George Russell. Most recently, I completed the Level 1 Foundations Program at the New York Institute of Aromatherapy with its Founder, Amy Galper. With the ever evolving state of our bodies, spirit and health, I am constantly inspired and challenged by each of my clients to offer sessions that are both deeply relaxing and therapeutic.
During each personalized session, I hope to promote and provide holistic wellness and care. Through the study and practice of bodywork, I myself feel more and more connected and compassionate with everyone I encounter. I hope to extend those energetic qualities to those I have the honor of working with.
