New scientific evidence indicates that massage therapy reduces muscle inflammation and soreness and probably enhances recovery.

Here’s an article for the public:

Stressed? Achy? Does that describe anyone on your gift list? Beautiful gift certificates for my services are available. I have more than twenty years experience as a massage therapist treating these and many other conditions.

Research done at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles found that a single session of massage caused biological changes, as reported in a recent New York Times article.

Effects were seen in hormone levels, notably reductions in cortisol and related hormones, and lymphocytes, which are part of the immune system.

Get Back!

You will, I hope, leave my office feeling like you have a new back.

You will, that is, if that is what you came for.  I treat other conditions, too.

Most people come to me with back problems.  They seek freedom from back pain and increased mobility.  Over and over they tell me they are amazed at how quickly and wordlessly I can zero in on the trouble spots in the neck, shoulders, and low back.

Of course, I can gently soothe stress and provide a safe, caring environment for recovery from grief and other issues.  And I can do the back treatment, as well as other treatments, in a way that incorporates gentle pressure or deeper pressure.

Welcome

Massage therapy is my way of traveling the path of compassion. For more than twenty years I have endeavored to refine my skills and open my heart to provide a healing service for others.

I am returning to private practice in the Union Square area.

My skills and love of my work have only grown in the years since I last had my own office. I look forward to working in an environment in which I am free to do what is best for the health and well-being of my clients.

Please bear with me as I learn to construct this website. I am so grateful to have a way to communicate with you whenever you like.

Thank you so much for your interest.

Healer

Am I a healer?

Yes.

Everyone is.

Even you.

You can, however, heal only one person.

You.

What I can do is help.

I have been able to help all sorts of people with all sorts of expectations, but my work is most effective when the client is ready to go on the journey with me.

Some clients want to lie there like a car up on blocks, expecting me to knock the dents out. I can still do much good, relieve pain and muscle tension, break down adhesions and scar tissue, improve circulation, stimulate the release of endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers), etc., etc.

But I can do you so much MORE good if you are willing to accept the AMAZING being of life and breath and healing and nature that you are, the miracle of creation and millions of years of evolution.

You can go into a deep state in which more healing can occur.

Yes, you can take other paths–meditation and yoga, for example. I recommend that my clients follow other paths to health.

What I DON’T recommend is, for example, texting during the massage. And believe me, I have seen that.

My sincere wish is that you become as healthy and happy as you can be.
