Nicole started Body Balance Massage Therapy in 2010 because of her passion for sports massage and movement and recognizing that , even in a city as big as NYC, there was a large demand for professionals specializing in this field.
Nicole first began her education as a Biology major at St John’s University. During this time, she volunteered in specialties such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and physical medicine, however all of these areas of medicine seemed to be lacking something. Nicole then started to explore other fields and found the holistic (or Wholistic) concepts of Massage Therapy a perfect fit, becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2004.
In practice, Nicole utilizes different massage and manual therapy techniques aimed at restoring functional movement, increasing performance and recovery and decreasing chronic pain. Her continuing education includes classes in: Orthopedic Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) Level 1, Rock Tape (FMT) Kinesiology Taping, Functional Movement Screen (FMS), Original Strength (OS) Pressing RESET
Nicole’s own athletic background includes: martial arts training, holding a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do from Eric San Jose Martial Arts, training in MMA and BJJ, American style kickboxing and some Crossfit. Most recently, Nicole has begun running (very slowly!) and is in training for some half marathons.

Days Available: Friday & Saturday

Michael is a NYS licensed Massage Therapist, graduating from the New York College of Health Professions in 2013. He has significant experience in different modalities including: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Tui Na/Asian Bodywork, Reflexology, Medical Massage and Sports Massage.
He utilizes his knowledge of Western and Eastern techniques using anatomy in helping to assess and treat pathologies and working on channels and points to help develop a quick and accurate individualized treatment plan. Michael uses a medical approach to massage. Upon addressing the tissues upon initial assessment, he uses his knowledge and intuition to decide the best approach for the client.
Michael says, “I address the whole person and the whole body. Clients are more than just their trigger points and adhesions. I like to create a feeling of integration with the areas that are hypertonic (tight) or in spasm with the parts of the body that are well. My teachers taught me that deep tissue need not be painful. I allow the tissue to invite me in.”
