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 and feel 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."
