"I used to get massages once in a while, and only when I was in pain or totally stressed out. Amy is the first massage therapist to make me realize the power of regular massage therapy. She is talented, personable, professional, attentive to my needs and has solved so many different problems: from pain associated to working on my computer too long, to sports injuries, to just overall stress relief. Amy has been able to relieve every muscle/joint issue I've thrown at her!" - Carolin
"I'm over eight months pregnant and Amy gave me a fantastic massage. I've had a lot of upper back pain and she really worked on the sore spots to relieve much of the aching. She has strong hands and gives a deep yet relaxing massage. She is priced very reasonably. I would recommend her highly." - Alex
"Amy is a gifted Massage Therapist specializing in Pre and Postnatal Massage. A local mom of 2 young boys, Amy understands the complexity of a mother’s body and how to heal it. Her extensive training and experience brings comfort to those seeking relief." - Liliana
"After months of recurring back pain, I decided to look into Massage Therapy, based on the reviews on this website (Park Slope Parents) and someone else who wrote to me suggesting Amy, I called Amy. She came to my apartment once a week for several weeks and my back has never felt this good. She did an amazing job. Spent time really understanding what my problems were and worked hard on focusing on them during the massage. She is also a very pleasant woman. I can't recommend her highly enough."- Amanda
"Amy is an amazing massage therapist who really listens to what's bothering you. She also does very deep work upon request (many therapists say they do but then really don't) and does a terrific prenatal massage. She also works part-time in a physical therapy office which brings a medical sensibility to her work. I wholeheartedly recommend her and I am pretty picky!" - Doria
"I am 8 months pregnant and have often found prenatal massage to be unsatisfying because the therapist is 'walking on eggshells' and afraid to really dig in to the knots. Amy was very comfortable using deep pressure and really listened to me when I told her where the sore spots were. She was pleasant to talk to and knowledgeable.
I would definitely recommend her, especially to pregnant women but to everyone else too! It's an expense for us to pay for an at-home massage but it was worth every penny." - Clarissa
"Unlike many practitioners who have their ''routine'' and if you say, ''I'm here because I have horrible hip pain,'' they spend 5 minutes on that and otherwise do their thing, Amy gives truly customized massages aimed at YOU and your healing and relaxation. For prenatal, she uses loads of pillows propped just so, enabling pregnant women to lie on their stomachs, and she gives wonderful massages." - Ana

CBD Add-On: CBD is one of the most researched cannabinoids and has been proven to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This CBD oil by KENKO can help reduce soreness, while also deeply hydrating your skin. + $15.00
*Ask me about purchasing a jar of Kenko's CBD Relief Cream 500mg for powerful, effective, cooling pain relief.
"I have chronic pain in my knees. The new 500mg version of Relief Cream is amazing! I can't believe how quickly it takes the pain away. I'm able to walk stairs after using it." - Judith G.
Dry Brushing Add-On: Dry brushing is a classic ayurvedic ritual that buffs skin and encourages lymphatic drainage and circulation. Leaves your skin glowing! (Take home body brush included) + $20.00
Cupping: Cupping can help improve circulation, release fascia and relax muscles. A thin layer of high grade massage oil is applied to the skin and the cup slowly dragged along the body, pushed and pulled, or left in place for several minutes to provide deep stimulation to the underlying tissue. This negative pressure gently pulls up and creates space within the muscle and connective tissue, bringing fresh blood and lymph to the area to improve circulation and range of motion. + $15
