I am a New York State licensed Massage Therapist since 1997. I attended the Swedish Institute in Manhattan. I have a private practice in Riverhead, NY since 2003. I have worked at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Beth Israel, St. Lukes Hospital and Peconic Bay Medical Center. I am also a Board Member of the New York State Society of Medical Massage Therapists, Inc.
I also have volunteered for the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation, Childrens Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, Flanders Senior Center, Peconic Bay Medical Center, the downtown Firehouses and Search and Rescue teams from the September 11th aftermath.
I have recently joined the staff of Swedish Massage School as a continuing education instructor. It's rewarding and humbling to see how the power of touch can give someone hope, relief, strength, balance, and an improved quality of life.

It is important to me to express my appreciation to my clients for allowing me the opportunity to be their therapist. I strive to make a difference in the quality of life of every person that I touch. I meet many of my new clients at lectures and presentations that I give at organizations, hospitals and community centers.
This wonderful profession of massage therapy is extremely rewarding. Being able every day to help people reduce stress and regain a sense of well-being is a dream come true. Even individuals with long standing ailments can achieve improved wellness.
The continued trust and support of my clients is paramount to me and I work daily to earn and achieve this trust.
My website offers an outline of my practice and services and, in the coming months, I wish to add information about some of the research done on the benefits of regular massage.
Too often people wait until they experience pain to schedule a massage session. Massage's many benefits offer individuals the most gains when treatments are received on a regular basis, because massage therapy is most effective to the body on an accumulative basis.
As always, please feel free to let me know of any particular issues that you need to address at your next therapy session.
