A Chat with Integrative Bodywork & Massage
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
[I have] 30 years of experience and exceptional knowledge of the body. [I perform] therapeutic, relaxation, deep tissue, and medical massage. I understand the body from multiple perspectives as a yogi, athlete, dancer, and martial artist. I also listen to and address the needs of my clients.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Growing up in New York City, I was exposed to so many different things and philosophies. I took my first bodywork course in Greenwich Village when in high school and started using what I learned on friends. I needed the bodywork and other holistic and creative things I did to foster my own healing.
What do you love most about your job?
I love leading people into a deep space of learning and experiencing their bodies. The importance of the body for our health—on so many levels—makes us a better person, worker, family member, and friend. We develop as human beings through the body.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“I came in crippled with back pain and limping and I left with no pain. The pain never returned!”
“Whatever you did, I have never experienced that before!”
