Hi there! My name is Mia. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist currently studying Shiatsu as well as Bio Energy Healing. I grew up in NYC but live in Northern NJ.
I became interested in the beneficial role of massage therapy following a lifelong interest to learn about treating physical, emotional, and psychological ailments without the use of harmful pharmaceuticals. My adoptive brother, 5 years my senior, suffered from many psychological issues. Unfortunately, he was on medication and in and out of hospitals his entire youth. Even at a very young age, I knew there had to be a better way to deal with such challenges more holistically.
In 1996, I graduated from a fantastic massage therapy program in NJ and became one of the best in my field. I have worked in the best spa’s in NYC and NJ and also with top plastic surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists and even psychologists. My massage instructor was Native American and took our learning experience (and our lives) to a whole other level of consciousness; this paved the way for my healing nature to truly develop in ways I could have never imagined.
In 2005, I graduated college with a degree in sociology and became and social worker for 6 years. I worked with a most challenging group of people which included those with schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, and heavy addiction. In addition, some of my clients were former prostitutes or had committed homicide.
I have developed my craft to provide deep full body relaxation massages, pain relief as well as emotional and psychological healing. My sessions integrate Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports, Swedish, Muscle Energy Techniques, Stretching, Chi Energy Balancing and other massage modalities to address each individual’s specific muscular imbalances, weaknesses, or bodily stresses that inevitably occur during the course of our lives.
Lastly, I understand the importance of developing a relationship of trust with each client and have an innate ability to create a safe and comfortable vibe almost immediately; this ensures that the clients receives the maximum benefits from their sessions with me.
I hope you enjoyed reading my bio, and would love to see you soon!
