I have been licensed and in practice for over fourteen (14) years, and am constantly studying to expand my skill base. I graduated from the Swedish Institute School for Massage and Allied Health Sciences in 1999, where I studied several swedish-based massage modalities and shiatsu. I have been practicing in Harlem, New York and adjacent communities since graduation. In 2000, I studied Lymph Drainage Therapy. I added to my skills set in 2004, when I traveled to Maui, Hawaii to study Hawaiian Temple Massage (Lomi Lomi). In 2009, I became certified in Applied Vitaflex and Raindrop Technique.
My practice is therapeutic non-sexual bodywork. My focus is healing, safe, appropriate touch.

Touch is one of our most powerful forms of communication. As such, every form of touch communicates a message. Massage Therapy is a form of safe touch during which there is an physical conversation between the therapist and the client. Concerns communicated by the client, both verbally and physically are what directs the course of the session. My response to my client is the use of my training and skills to address those concerns. To this end, in each session, I generally employ a combination of elements from all of the bodywork modalities I have studied. Your body already has the knowledge of self-healing. It is my job as your therapist to merely remind it. Have you ever had a massage and marveled at how the therapist can know exactly where to work as if by magic – on parts of the body that you yourself didn't realize needed work? Well, that is the conversation. That is your body guiding the therapist to the areas that are not at ease. Through gentle and practiced appropriate safe touch, I can help to remind your body and guide it back toward health, normalcy, ease and comfort.
