MPHC has a large staff of therapists who offer massage in a wide range of modalities so you are sure to find a style and therapist to suit your needs. All of the therapists are licensed by New York State and are graduates of accredited massage institutes. Some of the massages offered at MPHC are:
- Swedish – is a wonderful introduction to the healing effects of massage and for stress relief and tension reduction. It increases blood circulation and lymph flow with long gliding strokes directed towards the heart, as well as kneading, rolling and percussive movements.
- Pregnancy Massage - several of our therapists are certified in pregnancy massage which qualifies them for professional practice in Pre and Post Natal Massaage. Pre-Natal massage aids with the aches and pains associated with pregnancy and Post-Natal massage is designed to help restore the body to its pre-pregnancy condition. It also addresses the stress of carrying and caring for a newborn.
- Shiatsu – the most widely known form of acupressure, concerned with balance of energy in our life and within our body. It is practiced by applying stretches and pressure along our energy pathways (meridians).
- Deep Tissue – focused deep muscle massage and friction are used to break up adhesions and affect the sub-layer of musculature and fascia. This is a great choice for chronic issues, old injuries, trigger points and postural improvement.

“Rasalind has the ability to understand what my body needs pressure-wise. She is focused, on time and did amazing work on the upper leg and gluteus medius.”
“I’ve been taking Lisa Spaeth’s Hot Alignment Yoga for over a year. Lisa is the best Yoga teacher I’ve ever had. I wasn’t able to do many of the poses as previous teachers weren’t specific as to body placement. Lisa complete knowledge and direction of how to find correct alignment has completely changed my Yoga practice for the better. On a scale of 10 I give Lisa an 11 for teaching excellence.” – Wendy Davidson
“Kristin really read my background and noticed my posture issues right away. I felt like my posture improved immediately – my shoulders are pushed forward and she really spent time with that area. She also discussed other types of massage options and asked if I had other ailments. I was very comfortable and with her and will definitely go back for more massages in the future“
“Kathy was very in touch with my body and issues exerted and good pressure, full coverage, will definitly come back for more. Especially love the specials!”
