Introduction: *I had both doses of Pfizer covid vaccine, and can provide proof with my NYS excelsior pass. I’m a fully certified Pilates Instructor and a Massage Therapist specializing in Myofascial Release. I also am trained in ELDOA levels 1,2,&3. Myofascial Release: Deep-tissue in nature, holds can be similar to cupping without the bruising and unsightly marks. Ease muscle/fascial strain, improve movement quality, and reduces connective tissue build-up. Pressures applied slowly, sustained & held until release is felt (about 60-90 seconds). Oil is not used in authentic myofascial work because you are not gliding over the bodies tissues, but rather gently/sensitively lifting fascia & muscle and reshaping it. This causes an interruption to the bodies neurological signaling or “holding pattern,” helping it reset, and reshape. With regular myofascial therapy, the changes we create in a session have a longer lasting effect due to the fact that the pressure is held until multiple releases are observed. Lines of pull are visually assessed prior to treatment. Swedish Massage: Lymph and circulation focused-similar to that of a lymphatic massage, with the intention of effecting the bodies liquids towards the heart center. Very relaxing. Both modalities will take you out of fight/flight mode (beta brain waves) and place you in rest/heal/digest (theta brain waves). Pilates: I provide this service to clients who have their own apparatus, or mat work. My work as a Pilates Instructor is centered around improving flexibility in areas that are bound up, and strengthening areas that are overly lax. Joint stabilization, balance, proper techniques of load management are also areas of focus, helping to mitigate the problems that come with modern movement dysfunction. ELDOA: A French acronym that translates in English to LOADS longitudinal osteo-articular decoaptative strengthening/stretching. This is a highly effective way of creating space in our joints by lengthening the collagen tubules in our fascia(connective tissue & ligaments) to allow water to osmotically flow in. Assisting others to feel body-positive is what my work is all about. I encourage you to give your body the nourishment provided by my manual and movement methods.

I hired Denise to gift my mother a 90min massage in her home on Mother’s Day. She was punctual, professional and per my mother it was 1 of the best massages that she has ever had.

Denise was on time. Her set up was wonderful. She asked me what my problem areas were and addressed them full on. She explained what she was doing and if her pressure was comfortable. I have booked my next session already.
