Christin Harvey – Massage Therapist and Feldenkrais Practitioner

“To make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant.” – Moshe Feldenkrais

Christin has been practicing massage therapy in NY for 21 years after graduating from the Helma Institute of Massage Therapy in 1996. Her studies at Helma included Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, reflexology, acupressure, and aromatherapy. Over the years Christin has developed her own eclectic style of massage, many of her clients have been requesting her massage services weekly for 20 years. These long-term professional relationships have greatly helped Christin hone her craft affording her the unique opportunity to see the long-term benefits of her work.

In 1999 Christin was introduced to the Feldenkrais Method when her father gave her an “Awareness Through Movement” tape. As a body worker, Christin became highly intrigued by her father’s newfound ease of movement and flexibility and soon shared his fondness and confidence in the lessons. That same year Christin enrolled in a four year Feldenkrais Training program under the tutelage of David Zemach-Bersin.

Since beginning her work with the Feldenkrais method Christin has found that both massage therapy and Feldenkrais work can be very complimentary. Many of her clients receive both weekly massages and Feldenkrais lessons. Both methods can be used in conjunction to treat common conditions such as: back, neck, and shoulder pain, TMJ pain, sciatica, sports injuries, strains & sprains, scoliosis, and even those with serious neurological problems such as Parkinson’s and stroke. Working with the Feldenkrais Method has broadened Christin’s professional scope, helping her to expand her understanding of how the body and mind work together.

Christin continues to enhance her Feldenkrais knowledge base, as well as advanced massage practices by participating in advanced training s and workshops each year.

Jody Polevoy – Lymphatic Drainage and Massage Therapy

Jody Polevoy is a mind-body healing practitioner with more than 20 years of experience practicing and teaching powerful methods of personal transformation.  Jody has a BA from Columbia and a MSW from Hunter College. She is a graduate of The Kripalu School of Ayurveda and the Manual Lymph Drainage Institute International and has studied extensively with Dr. Vasant Lad, Rosy Mann, and Dr. Naina Marballi, MD.

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is an effective light touch massage that stimulates and enhances  the flow of lymphatic fluid.  This helps the lymphatic system by decreasing swelling, removing toxins, and increasing your  body’s natural detoxification process.  It is also a highly effective treatment both pre and post surgery, minimizing puffiness and swelling after surgery, and increasing circulation, thus shortening healing time.

Most people benefit from lymphatic drainage since it promotes relaxation, reduces edema, and strengthens the immune system.  MLD has an affect on the sympathetic nervous system, helping calm both the body and mind.  Don’t be surprised to find yourself asleep during a treatment, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated when the hour is completed.
