She has been in NYC since 2004; has a background in dance and a BFA in theatre; both of which inform her approach to bodywork. Pam studied at the world renowned Swedish institute, where she later worked as an apprentice teacher and tutor. Pam utilizes many techniques including Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Cupping and self-care education to treat chronic pain and range of motion limitations. 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!"

AARON

Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Yoga Trainer

Aaron is a graduate of the Swedish Institute and an AMTA member. He has always felt that a holistic approach to healing and health maintenance is the key to a person living a happy life. He has trained in martial arts for over 20 years. He also teaches Capoeira and Yoga. Aaron believes that massage treatments should not be limited to a single “style” or “modality.”  He uses everything in his arsenal (including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Shiatsu, Gua Sha, Thai and Myofascial techniques) to address the client’s specific needs and to develop a holistic treatment plan with them.

"Aaron has been very helpful to me in managing my back, leg and hip pain. His massage is thorough, and I invariably feel better afterward. I highly recommend Aaron for someone who is seeking a massage therapist with not only excellent training, but an analytical mind to asses and treat each individual with whom he works. I feel fortunate to be able to benefit from his expertise."

ERIKA

Licensed Massage Therapist

Erika is a native Floridian who has resided in New York since 2011. Her journey of becoming a licensed massage therapist followed after a very intense career as a dance instructor and performer. Upon drawing inspiration from her mother who is also a LMT and after treating 2 very painful injuries with massage, acupuncture, and PT she soon realized how powerful touch was. Erika enjoys practicing specific and personalized work for each client catering to their physical needs. Using a mix of different modalities such as swedish massage, deep tissue-specific work, myofacial release, trigger point release, etc. Erika uses her intuition and communicates with clients to deliver needed manual therapy that will improve physical limitations.

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."
