As the first massage therapist to practice in a hospital, most of my clients are medically referred. Many have had chronic disabling pain and dysfunction issues. My training in Neuromuscular Therapy, CranioSacral therapy and movement re-education based on the teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais as well as 20 years of clinical experience, give me a somewhat unique approach to treating complex musculoskeletal pain problems. My work has been reported in the Boston Globe and I have authored a chapter on Massage Therapy in a medical textbook. I am also the senior massage therapist at the Osher Clinic of the Brigham & Women's Hospital in Brookline.
