Have you ever had a dream that somehow became a reality? We have—our brick building on Hudson Avenue where we specialize in therapeutic massage has been a long time dream. Anna and I have worked together since 2004. Our doors opened on April 1st 2011, the best birthday present I could have asked for!

I have been providing professional massage therapy services to the Delmar area since 2004 and also am a graduate from Albany’s Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy. I believe that regular therapeutic massage is not a luxury but an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
In these poor economic times, it’s important to keep yourself healthy, relaxed, and de-stressed. It’s hard to concentrate on work and family when you have an achy back or stiff neck. My practice focuses on Swedish, Deep Tissue and Hot and Cold Stone Therapy. I am also fully trained in Prenatal massage and Therapeutic Reflexology. I will tailor our session to your individual requests.
April is Co-Owner of Breathe Massage and was Voted "Best Massage" by Metroland 2009 & 2010

I have been involved in the massage community since 2001, and at least annually, study and become certified in another modality to bring to the table. My massages can include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot or Cold Stone Therapy, Positional Therapy, Sports Massage, Reiki, Craniosacral techniques, and acupressure, sometimes all in one session, and are always tailored to your individual needs. I am also trained in Prenatal Massage.
What I love most about being a massage therapist is fulfilling the need for touch through massage and the healing energy exchange that goes on during a session. Keeping this in mind, know that I will always respect and honor your personal space.
People often arrive for a session saying, “I looked forward to this all day/week.” They comment simply laying on the table is nice, until after the massage, when they stumble out, neck and shoulders dropped down, lower back pain relieved, and even more relaxed and peaceful.

I am a graduate of Austin’s School of Spa Technology and I love what I do! Aside from working at Breathe Massage, I also work at the only Forbes Four-Star Spa outside of NYC. I divide my time between both places, but I am proud to call Breathe Massage my home base.
To me, the skins amazing resiliency is what makes it so fascinating! I believe that educating my clients about skin comes with the job.
