With 10 years of experience as a massage therapist, whose most recent experience was at the world-renowned Mandarin Oriental Spa NYC, her curiosity in the body, mind, and consciousness continues to expand over time. Our massage studio places the focus and attention on the individual and effective bodywork. The treatment begins with a brief consultation to determine the present state of the body and mind.
Our treatments are described as therapeutic since the depth of pressure is a unique sensation based on individual lifestyle and health status and relaxation techniques. pain management relief varies among individuals. Essentially, there are various approaches to the body to achieve a goal of relaxation, restoration, muscle tension release/trigger point release, or stress relief.
