massages can best be described as eclectic, based in the Swedish tradition, with features from
Trigger Point Therapies,
Sports Massage, and
depending on what you need and/or want. Some of these modalities I learned in classes and workshops and some from other
Education (most recent first):
Earned a degree in Massage Therapy from The Swedish Institute in New York City.
BA from the University of Pennsylvania.
Regents Diploma with Honors from New Dorp High School.
long years at the Yeshiva Teferith Schmuel Ezra.
Licensed to practice as a Massage Therapist
in New York State. Click here for verification: NYS Professions: Online Verifications
In My Humble Opinion:
so you know, a NYS license does NOT mean that the bodyworker is any good. Some of my favorite and most talented masseurs have
no license, and some licensed ones are so awful I stopped the massage after ten minutes, paid them in full, and left.
The only benefits derived from having a license are the ability to work in licensed health clubs and spas, the ability to
write a receipt for my clients who have flex-pay, and the ability to get malpractice insurance. And, for those who worry about such things, the
New York State license requires me to be discreet as part of the client/practitioner relationship.
I do not discriminate against any person because of age, ancestry, color, disability
or handicap, national origin, race, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status. However, if you are under
18, you need to have a parent or guardian present.
As a licensed
massage therapist, I pride myself
on my intuitive and knowledgeable touch.
I have the ability to really
dig deep into muscles, or to use a feather-light touch,
and everything in between.
Whether to help heal injuries,
relax tight muscles,
or relieve everyday stress,
I feel certain that I can help you.
Still, you should choose a massage therapist as
carefully as you would a psychotherapist.
So, ask around, shop around,
do what you need to do...
...don't let this happen to you!
