I am coming to you with 5 + yrs experience of m4m massage under my belt. My goal is to create a deeply relaxing massage. I don't pretend to be able to heal injuries or fix a bad posture. With that said I do believe there is something healing and fundamental about physical touch. My background is in ballet, dance and fine art. It is through a dancer's spirit and knowledge of anatomy that I approach my massage sessions.
From here onward I will seeking long term and regular clients because I no longer live in the city. I will be coming down regularly from where I live on the Hudson river. It will be easier to do scheduling with people I have regular contact with. If anyone is interested coming up to me could also be an option once I get to know you. If desired the session could involve a meal and walk/talk through the woods. There are lots of trails here and it's beautiful.
One of the most difficult aspects about bodywork is establishing a common sense of presence. We have an hour or a little more together, which in the grander scheme isn't a lot. It doesn't work if we remain in radically different places. I ask that you be open minded and shed your unspoken expectations. Using breath as a rhythm and release valve can be key when things get blocked up. With that said I've been doing this long enough to guide us right in.
I love to use music during my massages. Music enters us whether we like it or not. It side steps our filters--the way we want to see and feel things. We spend so much time curating and controlling our experiences. I have had a lot of success using sound to tether sessions. This doesn't mean I will be playing the sound of music soundtrack, but I have a range of possibilities...some very gentle pieces.
My massage is a blend of techniques. Sometimes people say this euphemistically as in they don't have training or development. For me I find that different modalities have their own various strengths and weaknesses. Combining them into a toolkit to draw from works well. I pull from Thai, accu pressuse, sports, deep tissue, swedish, yoga, dance, body electric, feldenkrais. My goal is to have you walking away from our time together feeling refreshed and buoyant, which in our present world goes a long way.
Please feel free to leave a review of our time together--I like the added feedback.
I studied ecology at the university of Chicago, and then went on to study fine art here in NYC. I now live up the hudson river about hr north of the city. It's been my life mission to get myself more or less independent from industrial-scale consumption. There is so much beauty and opportunity in this world for everyone, and we're so distracted trying to have our cake and eat it too.
