Araina Artis Linton is a Licensed Massage Therapist in NYC and owner of Massage Artistry. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Management and Communications from Guilford College in 2009, a Massage Therapy License from The Swedish Institute of Health Sciences in New York City in 2010. Araina opened her own business, Massage Artistry in 2012.

Araina’s advanced training in Medical Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Trigger Point Therapy allows her to create safe and therapeutic massage sessions. With the surname of Artis, all throughout Araina’s school years people would jokingly ask, “What kind of artist are you? Do you draw? Do you paint?” Although her stick figures are legendary, it is her ability to compose a custom massage for every client that is her creative gift. Araina’s skill is the artistry of massage. 

How it all began…

I have been massaging and caring for people with chronic injuries since I was 12 years old. I was raised in a household where people suffered from chronic injuries to their shoulders, wrists and back. Growing up I witnessed first hand how chronic bodily pain can severely alter someone’s life. After graduating from college with my bachelor’s degree I came home and worked at an acupuncture clinic while I looked for a career in the sports field. During that summer, I saw how my bosses’ touch enhanced their client’s lives with acupuncture and I wanted to do that as well. Though I did not feel that acupuncture was for me, I felt the pull towards massage therapy and I enrolled that fall.

The massage program at Swedish Institute provided me with the tools I had been missing: the knowledge of the human body and the massage techniques. This equipped me with the ability to aid my loved ones with managing their pain. Learning about conditions in the classroom that I had prior knowledge of really fueled my passion for massage therapy.

Not just a massage…

Quickly out of school I realized that so many people were living with pain. I believe that constant physical pain does not, and should not, have to be a normal part of someone’s life. Massage has so many benefits, such as diminishing stress, easing tension and others various health benefits. But I discovered that the true power of massage is what it gives back to you: your pain-free body and peace of mind. As a massage therapist I can help you find relief from the physical pain that is impeding your life. I can help soothe tight muscles and give you the space to feel more focused, balanced, productive and aware. I can help you find an escape from the stress so you can take the time to reset and restore your body and mind.

I loved everything about my massage, the aroma, the music, the place was spotless, the therapist was amazing. I would love to do it again.

I've never felt so relaxed before like that in a long time. Amazing experience. I definitely felt comfortable and relaxed. My mind and body was at peace. Most importantly my body felt amazing afterwards. My job consists of standing all day so the massage by Ariana was fantastic. - Hannah

I have been coming to Araina for over a year now. I suffer periodically with lower back pain. But ever since I've been coming, I haven't had a flare up yet. This past Sunday, I was proud to do the 5 mile breast cancer walk in Central Park -- and made my appointment for right after the walk. Wow -- what a treat! Thanks to everyone at Massage Artistry and the biggest shout out to Araina -- she is the absolute best!

I like that Araina asked me at the start "how I'm feeling" &"what's bothering me" , so that she can concentrate on those areas.

I like that Araina gifted me with a cream that would help me with the part of my body that was particularly sore. That shows that Araina is attentive and cares about addressing the issues the clients discuss with her.

The only bad part was when it was over and I had to get up, get dressed and leave. I could have laid there forever.
