I’m Tania, a Board Certified New York City-based Licensed Massage Therapist with two decades of experience helping people feel awesome. Through a fusion of evidence-based Eastern and Western methods, I help my clients achieve physical rehabilitation, improved brain-body function, and relief from chronic stress.
Clients come to me because it doesn’t take session upon session for them to feel results. I have the experience and expertise to get right to the root of what’s not working— so you walk out of one session feeling transformed. Think of me as part of your healthcare team: here to answer your questions, help you understand your body and nurture your wellbeing.
As a professional, I strictly adhere to HIPPA
protocol with respect to you, your health, and your privacy.
I have been studying, practicing, and teaching massage therapy since 1994, relieving thousands of patients from pain across the United States and Europe. Just like any art, massage therapy takes years and years of practice to perfect. Massage therapy runs in my family. My great-grandmother, Doña Teresa García Aveiga de Velásquez, was a curandera, a practitioner of Ecuador’s indigenous Quechua healing methods. Combining her intuitive approach with Tuina, a Chinese form of medical bodywork, and evidence-based Western research on the science of massage, I apply the full breadth of my knowledge to each of my client’s unique needs.
Currently, I teach the Orthopedic and Sports Pathology course at the New York campus of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
My clientele includes athletes, performers, and people suffering or recovering from traumatic injuries, depression, anxiety, chemical dependence, and emotional upsets that have made it hard for them to function. Some of my patients simply seek stress relief, relaxation, and clarity of focus. No matter what they bring to the table, my clients trust me to be caring, tactful, professional, and to put them at ease.
In twenty years and counting of Massage Therapy I have had the pleasure of witnessing, time and time again, the power of massage not just to “work out a few kinks”, but to bring about dramatic, lasting changes to the body and mind. hide
