I am told I have a great pair of hands that will unlock the most deep seated tension or spasms. I can get you to a deep sense of relaxation. While I love Swedish massage and while I do use deep tissue as needed; I think the numerous courses I have taken in Myofascial Release makes me a better therapist. My specialty is medical massage. I have been in practice for over 20 years and love my profession. I am also a NYS licensed Physical Therapist. I am vaccinated X 3 and I do wear a mask. I make house calls only.
