Tony is a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist who discovered his passion for the profession after experiencing relief from his own chronic pain and mental stress through therapeutic bodywork.  Intrigued by the intricate connection between mind and body, he is driven to bring the same benefits for his clients, recognizing them as complete individuals rather than just a set of muscles.

 

He believes in the multifaceted benefits of massage, extending beyond physical improvement to encompass overall well-being and mental clarity.  Thus, his sessions focus not only to restore bodily equilibrium, but also on reducing stress and enhancing mental focus.

To optimize outcomes for his clients, Tony not only merges his clinical training, therapeutic massage methods such as Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, and Muscle Energy Techniques, but also his expertise gained from more than a decade of practice in Reiki and energy healing.

On his off-hours, Tony channels his creativity into music, writing and performing music on bass, violin and electronic media.
