As a massage therapist who is trained in over 20 techniques
and has worked in the field of massage for over 17 years
(I got in to it early) with various medical practitioners,
physical therapists, and athletic teams, I have extensive
practical experience working with the physiologic aspects of
our injuries while being able to successfully fuse the intrinsic
energy that lies within our psychosomatic experiences.
I believe that manual manipulation of our soft tissue (such as
muscles, ligaments, fascia and connective tissue) is a very
powerful form of preventative and remedial treatment.
I have had the pleasure of working within athletic training teams
for college athletes, with chiropractors, cardiologists,
physiotherapists, surgeons, and high profile clientele such as
professional athletes and famous musicians, touring with major music acts.
I have focused my specialties on sports rehab and prevention, chronic pain management, and lymphatic drainage for post operative patients and also for people suffering from auto immune diseases. I have done both work with therapeutic care teams as well as private one on one sessions.
Because I have a passion for my work and because I believe it is important to give back, I have had the privilege to volunteer with non-profit groups like The Hyacinth Foundation working with auto-immune patients, Life Rolls On working with mobility disabled children and adults due to both circumstantial and congenital issues. I am a founder and board member of Massage Without Borders, TEDxJerseyCity, and Massage 4 The People. I am currently a professor at Cortiva Massage Institute in Hoboken, NJ where I teach classes in Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy. Ive also worked internationally with special needs patients with brain injuries which resulted in occupational dysfunctions or partial paralysis as is the case with aphasia, peripheral neuropathies, stroke, or fibromyalgia.
My work in the field of physiotherapy facilitated my skill set dealing with chronic pain sufferers. There are many modalities to deal with persistent, ingrained soft tissue constriction. To treat chronic conditions, I specialize each massage to fit the needs of each client, every time I see them. I do not believe in massage “routines”. By not relying on a routine, I can deal with the specific presentation and resolution of issues on an individual basis. By doing this, I have seen some amazing changes in peoples bodies, and also quality of life!
Any questions you may have about a condition, a massage, or anything related please do not hesitate to contact me!
