I am a professional bodyworker, trained, certified in California, with 31 years’ experience.
I live and work in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, superbly located, very easy to get to. I do only in-calls, only in my own bodywork studio, where I work safely in a clean, healthy, peaceful environment.
To relieve stress, I use slow, European rhythmic strokes that soothe and calm, combined with focused ones that reach into every fiber to dissolve tension points. The pressure can be soothing, or... it can be strong, even intense, depending on your preference. However, I find that most people like a firm, middle pressure, which steadily relaxes them.
When someone comes to me with muscle pain, I employ deeper, assuaging methods within a person’s comfort range, sometimes involving Asian techniques.
My 90-minute Regular Session addresses the entire body, plus any issues. My 60-minute Focused Session concentrates on specific problems.
I do not require you to wear a mask during a session; however, I ALWAYS wear a mask, a 3M N95 used in hospital ICU’s, which protects us both. My studio is vented by state-of-the-art true-HEPA air purifiers, as well as by an exhaust-fan 100% air change between sessions. I have had all vaccinations as they become available, and I expect you have had them, too.

Ted gives an excellent massage. He is very intuitive. I have visited his studio a number of times and always feel renewed after an appointment with him.

I’ve been a longtime client of Ted, and wouldn’t have anyone else. If you have a specific ache or pain, he knows how to heal it. And when you get off the massage table, you can already feel the improvement. He makes you feel energized. He has a magic touch.

I have been receiving massages from Ted for 27 years. Clearly, I’m a very satisfied client. Ted’s studio is very quiet and clean. His expertise is evident right from the start. He takes the time to thoroughly discuss my preferences and any specific areas that require attention. His professionalism and ability to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere always put me at ease.

Ted’s technique is both therapeutic and soothing, allowing me to completely unwind and let go of stress. His skill, professionalism, and ability to create a customized massage experience make him a standout in his field. Highly recommended.
