Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. I’m Tania, a licensed massage therapist in NYC with two decades of experience helping people feel awesome. Through evidence-informed practices, I help my clients achieve improved brain-body function, orthopedic injury rehabilitation, and relief from stress and pain.
Clients come to me because I keep updated and have a solid referral network, if needed. Together, we address your concerns so you walk out of each session feeling wonderful and knowing you’ve been well taken care of. Think of me as part of your healthcare team: here to help you understand your body better, answer your questions, and nurture your well-being.
My clients includes athletic and creative professionals, fellow healthcare providers, and people who live with chronic conditions. Many have experienced persistent pain that’s interfered with their quality of life. Others seek stress relief, relaxation, and a sense of clarity. 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 sharing this work, I’ve had the honor of witnessing time and time again, the power of massage therapy to not only relieve tension, but to bring about dramatic and lasting changes within the body and mind.
In 2017, I founded Pinpoint Education, an educational resource platform for massage professionals, manual therapists, and bodyworkers. I’m also adjunct faculty at the Pacific College-NY campus where I teach orthopedic/sports massage and kinesiology.
I’ve been studying, practicing, and teaching manual therapy since 1994 and it also happens to run in my family. My great-grandmother, Doña Teresa García Aveiga de Velásquez, was a curandera, a practitioner of Ecuador’s indigenous Quechua healing methods. I combine her meditative approach with my background in Eastern styles and the most current research on touch science. It’s called OPEN Bodywork and you can find out more about that blend here.
