What to expect now that I’m expecting!

(Last updated 2/16)

Dear world,

I’m pregnant! Here’s what you should know about how that will affect my practice:

  • I would like to keep working for as long as possible. My absolute 100% last possible day in the office will be April 15th. If it ends up being sooner than that, I will update this post.
  • I’m happy to book people up until then, with the understanding that as I get further into my pregnancy I may need to cancel appointments if I’ve taken on more than I can chew. It’s impossible for me to know at this point how I will be feeling in six weeks. I appreciate your understanding!
  • As of mid-February I’ve started cutting back my hours, so I am currently working a little less than full time.
  • I changed my booking site so it’s set up to book only a month in advance at this point. As we get closer to my due date I will further shorten that window.
  • My anticipated return date is sometime mid-July or so. When I know, you’ll know.
  • When I come back, I will be working part-time for the foreseeable future- tentatively Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. This schedule will start April 1st.
  • Starting April 1st, I will be sharing my office space with another local massage therapist, Polina Savelieva. Some of you may know her, as I’ve been referring to her for a couple years now. She’s also my massage therapist! I’m thrilled that she has agreed to enter this partnership with me, and hope you will contact her if you want to get a massage while I am on maternity leave.

I think that about sums it up- let me know if you have any questions!

Rate change going into effect November 1st

Dear clients,

My rates will be changing on November 1st 2017. The new rates will be as follows:

30 min: $60

45 min: $80

60 min: $100

90 min: $135


These rates do not include the 4.5% NYC Service Tax.

Package rates will be adjusted accordingly as well.


All sessions booked before November 1st will be at the current rate- so if you book some sessions on October 31st spanning the next couple months, or purchase a package, they will be at the pre-November 1st rate.

New rates will apply for all sessions booked on or after November 1st, and all packages purchased after November 1st.

Required reading for those with lower back pain

Last week published A Comprehensive Guide to the New Science of Treating Lower Back Pain and it is chock full of good information about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to treatment. A great article about a complicated subject!
