Meet Our Licensed Massage Therapy Team

Look no further

Each one of our staff members is a licensed massage therapist who has gone above and beyond in training. They have been hand-selected for Orthopedic massage and working with injury because they excel in more than one area. Each has gone through a training program organized by the owner, who attended a massage school in Canada, where massage is a much more challenging full rehabilitory medical program. New York massage therapists have some of the highest standards of education in the country, so with supplemental training, they excel. Each massage therapist additionally holds insurance and an NPI (national provider identifier)

If you do not see a modality listed that you are looking for, please ask; many things fall under our ‘core knowledge’. We do not technically work by modality but by utilizing the right technique for the problem or injury.

Many of our licensed New York Massage therapists work at both locations (Midtown near the Empire State Building and Columbus Circle). Their area of work is listed on their profile as well as their days.

 

 

You do not have to choose us, but we encourage you to choose a solo practitioner, or a small company that treats their workers fairly. When you book with us, you are choosing a fully licensed professional who will do a full assessment, check in with you, who cares deeply about their work and about keeping you safe.

34th Street

My background as a dancer drew me to bodywork in an effort to cultivate a lifelong commitment to movement and body awareness. I started my work as a Feldenkrais practitioner and decided to continue in massage to develop a greater variety of touch and anatomical knowledge. During my time at PCHS, I felt consistently attracted to modalities that integrate an explicit nervous system approach to chronic pain. Learning from Matthew was one of the highlights of my time in the program. I’m hoping to learn more orthopedic skills in my growth as an LMT. Outside of massage, my capacity for considering diverse access needs has grown from providing access services for Disabled artists and audiences across New York City. I enjoy working with clients of different ages, abilities/neurotypes, orientations and cultural backgrounds.
