New York State Licensed Massage Therapist

I will address your needs to alleviate tension, stress and painful areas as quickly as possible. I am trained to help tap into your body's ability to help heal itself. I work to meet your comfort level and needs. I am a Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist. I have traveled to several cities here and abroad to further study massage as a holistic therapy and love the work that I do.

You can schedule an appointment at my office or take advantage of Traditional Shiatsu or Thai Yoga sessions in your home or office at little or no extra charge depending on your location in Manhattan. I look forward to sharing my skills and experience with you.

Background

My involvement in massage/bodywork first grew out of an interest in health and athletics. In 1989, after participating in a theater performance in Cadiz, Spain I traveled to the north of the country where I first experienced Shiatsu. I then used my time and energy on a daily basis to learn about this artform of bodywork. It was the connection of the Ki (pronounced "key" in Japanese and means "energy" or "life force") that enthusiastically changed my views in what I knew about massage.

In Shiatsu, there were not the strokes of massage or even the use of oils of any kind. A practitioner of Shiatsu uses his hands to connect with the energy that is flowing through another person. This coincides with each individual's capacity to being able to tap into his own energy, and take charge of his or her life - be it with health at the moment, or in the future. Within the core of each individual is their whole life: past, present and prospect for the future. Shiatsu encourages a person to use their senses as a tool so they'll learn to help themselves. This is valuable information that can help with our well being and in healing.
