She looks forward to helping you move better.

"My massage from Pam was the best! Her UWS space was very soothing and her attitude toward me as her client was like a doctor. She was very focused on massage as a health maintenance issue rather than as an extravagance. That showed up in everthing from her having a proper intake form to the questions she asked before we started. Pam even relieved an issue I had in my leg which had been bugging me for a few weeks. Relieved as in it's totally gone after one session with Pam! She really knows the body and she knows how to treat it. She's worth every penny!"

"I have been receiving therapy from Erika for my chronic back pain, caused by kyphosis and general problems with the alignment of my pelvis and spine. She is a great massage therapist, really good communicator and mixes various techniques to cater to my different needs based on the type of pain I experience. My chronic pain has reduced tremendously with Erika's sessions and I would wholeheartedly recommend her."

CLARISSA

Born and raised in NY, Clarissa became a LMT in 2015 following 13 years as a medical assistant. After witnessing continuous downgrades to our healthcare system, she had a desire to make a difference. The hands-on approach of massage therapy was a perfect fit; as a kid, she was always massaging her family’s heads and shoulders. Clarissa specializes in medical massage; she’s worked alongside chiropractors to treat a variety of conditions. Her treatments tend to be firm, but are always fluid and relaxing. She draws from Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release and gentle stretching to provide healing for mind and body. Clarissa greets patients with compassion and understanding to restore function and assist the body’s natural ability to heal itself. A busy, single mom of 2 boys, she understands the challenge of taking time for yourself and looks forward to helping you with your self-care needs. 

"I have been a client of Clarissa’s for 6 years. I’ve recently had sciatica and wasn’t even able to walk before her massage. She is a great massage therapist, honestly I don’t know what I would do without her! She always knows where I need to be massaged and stretches me which I desperately need because my hips are so tight. She gives suggestions as to what could make things better for me. She cares about her clients and is very professional."
