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.”
