FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I practice out of a treatment room in a salon in Hells Kitchen.  All intake forms are emailed to be filled out prior to their appointment so that I have a thorough medical history.  The clients should arrive 15 min prior to their appointment time to discuss any muscular issues they would like to address.  A treatment plan is designed based on their specific needs. Post-treatment home care recommendations and any follow-up questions are addressed


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received my massage therapy training from The Swedish Institute College of Allied Health Sciences in 2002.  Certified in Prenatal Massage, Registered Yoga Instructor at the 200-hour level. Highly experienced in Sports, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Swedish Massage, Pre/Post natal massage, Doula Services, and Prenatal Yoga

How did you get started in this business?

I began working in health right out of college as an administrative assistant at NYU Medical Center, eventually transitioning to a clinical technician position.  Working in this environment sparked an interest in prevention and alternative health methods which lead me to massage therapy.  I have since worn various hats in the industry, gaining licensure in massage therapy, certification in colon hydrotherapy, yoga instruction and more recently doula services. I've learned through my own experience, the importance of a whole body approach to wellness, through movement, nutrition, and detoxification are to feeling good spiritually, emotionally and physically and I wanted to share my experiences with others.  


What types of customers have you worked with?

I've worked with a wide range of clients from rehabilitative elderly to athletes, celebrities and the average person that sits behind the computer all day at work.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Being published as a co-contributor for a college physical therapy textbook


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Be specific about what your needs are.  Don't be afraid to ask questions regarding your needs and areas of concern. Although we cannot diagnose, a passionate, knowledgeable therapist will ask questions and may even do a couple of quick tests to assess and pinpoint where the problem is stemming from and will educate you and tailor the treatment to alleviate discomfort.  


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What are your everyday habits?  ie: sitting, standing, walking, phone, etc.

Medical history - ie, accidents, falls, breaks, sprains, recent dental work

Do you stay hydrated?

How often do you work out?
