Greetings & Welcome to the Massage
Portion of my website!
I can’t ‘stress’
enough how much this work has affected my life. While residing in Northern California
from 1999 to 2004, I was exposed to the profession of Massage Therapy.
Being an artist and working in the
corporate environment also for over 10 years and being able to go back to these often stressful environments and provide stress
relief and health education for many in similar environments and all environments in general has been a great blessing.
Becoming a massage therapist was fate;
as I had never received a professional massage myself until prior to entering massage therapy school at NHI in Emeryville,
CA. My first inclination was to attend school to provide massage to dancers,
which I will eventually be incorporating in the future, however, I was stopped in my tracks when I was introduced to the chair
massage portion of my studies. All I could fathom was being able to reach so
many with the work in just minutes, everywhere and anywhere, (even at their offices!) to expose them to this wonderful
work. I could have the opportunity to educate those, who like myself, had never
received a professional massage prior to my education at NHI.
Today, here I am back in my hometown
of New York sharing and extending this work to a city that is so in need of relaxation and centering moments, after all this
is the city that never sleeps and challenges us to work and strive to be the best in our prospective professions. As New Yorkers, we are aware that if you can make it in New York City then you can probably make it just
Massage is a great way to cushion the stress
that a driving city like New York can create. You might not know it if you have
not been exposed to the work, but a 10 minute chair massage can go a long way in refocusing you and reminding you that even
in our often driven lives, there’s still a moment to take a deep breath and relax and reflect on the true joy of life,
finding that peaceful moment within ourselves. Massage Therapy is definitely
an assistor in that path and chair massage is an affordable non-time consuming way to do so.
I look forward to providing my hometown
with the work that I love and support. All therapists are licensed and ready
to serve you with compassion, positive intention and intuitive touch. To find
