Being stressed and overwhelmed can make you feel unfocused and unproductive. What I do is help clients like you, manage stress, and restore balance through massage therapy. I am Erskine Melville known as “E” to some and “EM” to many. I am an integrative, licensed massage therapist in the New York City area.
As a legally blind massage therapist, I provide personalized treatments through my visceral touch therapy that helps you once again feel focused, and productive – ready to take on the tasks for the day. I am conveniently located in Union Square East – Park South Plaza.
Before I delve into some of the benefits of regular massage therapy, it’s important to be aware that although you may have the same underlying issues as others – like “Stress”, your issues are unique to you, and it is important to be mindful and patient with yourself, as some massage modalities may trigger unwanted emotional releases. By simply letting go and honoring the healing process, you will quickly see and feel the results. So, take whatever time you need to discover the right massage therapist, modality, and treatment plan that works best for your specific need.

How Does Massage Therapy Reduce Stress?
Stress is the body’s natural response to external and internal stimuli such as work, health, or certain hobbies. Anxiety manifests physically and mentally for everyone, which is why Massage Therapy is highly effective at treating both. When undergoing advanced massage therapy by a skilled licensed massage therapist, these treatments increase your body’s heat, and encourages better blood circulation to help remove waste products from the body. This process stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which regulates your fight/flight response, so you start to feel calmer in general – lessening everyday stresses with each visit!
