  In March of 2008, I opened my own business called ESCAPE therapeutic massage located in East Longmeadow, MA.  Having been through and overcome 8 arthroscopic knee surgeries is what brings me joy in helping other people overcome injury, surgery, and get or stay active.  I gear my practice toward pre and post surgery recovery, injury recovery, as well as overall health and wellness. 
   I promote health and wellness as well as follow my own regimen to stay healthy and active by working out with a personal trainer regularly, seeing a chiropractor, a yoga therapist, eat a strict plant based nutrition plan, and getting regular massages and bodywork.  I was recently diagnosed with an AutoImmune Thyroid condition called Hashimoto's and Lyme Disease, and have been working with a health and wellness coach to improve my gut health.  I am currently in nutrition school working toward my certification to become a health coach and will be incorporating it with massage therapy.

Craniosacral Therapy

I have been practicing CranioSacral Therapy since 2011 from instructor, and Massage Therapist Ken Dipersio. This modality of bodywork is very different from massage therapy because it is done while the client is fully clothed and offers minimal pressure. CranioSacral therapy is a gentle laying of the hands method of energy work to promote relaxation, and an increase of cerebrospinal fluid which is already present in the body naturally.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Nutrition services

by Lisa on Jan 16
As always Ari listens and pays attention to what is hurting/tight and pays special attention to those trouble spots. I recommend her to everyone.
by Carol on Jan 07
Everything was clean and Ari is always the utmost professional. It is a little strange walking into a tiny room off of a public hallway to receive the massage but I understand that this is a temporary situation for the business.
by Rebecca on Jan 03
Ari is great. Professional, knowledgeable and warm. Nice atmosphere. Comfortable. Cant wait to go back.
by Marian on Jan 01
She is a very skilled professional and a warm and caring person. I have received many massages from her before and, as usual, I am very happy with the experience.

Ari is a kind and caring professional who has help me with my sciatica pain. I know longer have to take Aleve or muscle relaxers. It is because of her that I’m able to play golf and take long walks without any pain. I highly recommend. She has been a real blessing in my life.

Ari devoted most of the hour on my injured shoulder as I'd hoped, and it helped a great deal. A great, skillful massage by a caring professional. If my schedule allows, I'll definitely be back for a full-body massage before my half marathon in October.
