Muscles, like the tails of sleeping cats or levers labeled “drain ocean,” were never meant to be pulled. Reverse the damage with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one hour of Breema bodywork at Present Healing Center (a $60 value).
Steve Brodsky, the licensed massage therapist and certified Breema practitioner at Present Healing Center, balances bodies and minds with the partnered poses of Breema. Upholding the modality's Nine Principles of Harmony, Steve manipulates limbs with the gentle deftness of a puppeteer. Clients lie fully clothed upon a padded floor as coiled tension gives way to controlled yet flowing movements. Through these stretches, holds, and rhythmic movements the body awakens to itself and its environment.
Present Healing Center
Whereas many massage practitioners stick to kneading backs and shoulders, Steve Brodsky approaches the healing process by working with the entire body. A certified Breema practitioner, Steve manipulates his clients' arms and legs, moving them into stretches and poses that promote total-body alignment. He also performs Thai massages, as well as therapeutic massages that can help bodies recover from days spent tumbling down steps at the amusement park’s stairway ride.
