Greetings! I am Janine, a Licensed Massage Therapist from New York City. Along with my NY license, I’ve obtained my license in the beautiful state of Washington, and in Oregon! After 11 years out in the Pacific Northwest, I have returned to my hometown of NYC and fulfilling where I’ve left off!
My passion as a healer and therapist over the 13 years of practice has rewarded me a million times over than the 15 years working as an Executive Assistant in the corporate world of Wall Street. When I jumped the corporate ship and went to school for massage therapy at The Swedish Institute in Manhattan, it was an eye opening experience, the only thing I could do was to kick myself for not doing it sooner! When I visited Seattle in Dec ’05, I felt the connection-even in the mist! What an indescribable feeling that Seattle was my next destination. In 2007, I moved to Seattle for the Quality of Life and to fulfill a path I was curious about.
Now, I have returned to New York with an abundance of experience & knowledge in the self-care realm. My heart and my soul alive and yearning to grow even more. I am looking to transfer and enhance the Quality of Life living through my touch and education of self care. I have worked in many areas and programs and it continues to inspire me. Through my experiences, my skill-set ranges from traditional Swedish massage, Deep tissue therapy, and the most popular and effective deep massage service, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist utilizes gravity and an overhead bar system for support while delivering a deep therapeutic massage without intense pain or discomfort to the client. Each individual receives a unique blend of modalities such as Deep Tissue, Lomi-Lomi, Myofascial Release, as well as integrating modalities of Eastern methods such as Shiatsu and Thai Massage.
I am an outgoing and down to earth ‘gal and work with each client individually, creating a sense of comfort and relaxation while continuing to follow through with aiding your aches and discomforts. I have integrity in my work and how I live my life, and it shows. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
