How long have you been practicing therapeutic massage? Since 2013
Why did you become a massage therapist? I like helping people. I’m a tactile learner and I have good problem solving skills. Massage therapy is a great combination of all three of these traits. I want to help people feel better and to recover from injuries; regardless of whether their discomfort is caused by participating in an athletic event, suffering a trauma, or just everyday life.
If you could practice anywhere, where would it be? Yankee Stadium or the NY City Marathon. I love working on athletes - whether it’s a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or somebody training for their first 5K. It’s really inspiring to treat people who are working to improve themselves and be the best version of themselves.
Philosophy of Healing: My philosophy of healing is that my clients are the healers. I am not healing anybody, I am just helping them heal themselves. We are working together to get you feeling your best!
Why should people have massage? So people don’t live their lives in pain and discomfort. We get so used to all the aches and pains of everyday life that we forget how we are supposed to feel. Our body gets out of position from our jobs. People get used to the back pain, the neck pain, the forearm and wrist pain. We get so used to it, we forget that we’re not supposed to be in pain. Life is too short to constantly be in pain and discomfort.
Favorite Modalities? Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Pre-natal Massage, Cupping.
Pressure Level: I will work to your comfort level, but I find that Medium to Deep works the best for most guests.
