Massage for Every Body
I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist who believes in making the benefits of regular massage available to all. Trained in Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular, and myofascial techniques, and certified in prenatal massage, I apply intuition, experience, and research to customize each massage to the needs of each individual client.
I have experience working with clients across the gender identity spectrum, as well as neurodiverse clients, and I treat every client with the respect and integrity they deserve. People come in a wonderful variety of shapes, sizes, genders, and life experiences, and my goal is to create a safe, affirming space for all my clients.
Some people still think of getting a massage “just to relieve stress” as a pampering luxury, but extensive research confirms that stress is serious stuff! Chronic exposure to stress hormones like cortisol can be bad for the immune system, the digestive system, the heart, and the brain. It can slow healing, worsen chronic pain, and cause anxiety, depression, sleep loss, heart disease, and weight gain. Our bodies are built to respond to stress in small, intense doses, with periods of relaxation in between, and don't deal well with the continuous low-grade pressures of modern life.
A massage is like a reset button for your body and mind. A regular massage regimen can help keep stress under control, and even a single massage can help you find, and stick to, your emotional center.
