Bruce Woolf
NYC Shiatsu   Thai Yoga Massage   Massage Therapy


I am a practitioner of Traditional Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage, holistic hands-on modalities rooted in Eastern bodywork. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Bodywork Educator trained in Japan and the United States.

Each session is tailored to your specific needs. Injuries or painful areas, imbalances, range of motion and extent of flexibility, and general well being are all taken into careful account prior to and during the session.

Both Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage are practiced on a specially made futon, with the client wearing comfortable clothing. I also offer Shiatsu on the table depending on the client’s needs and preferences. In no way does the table impede the grace and flow that's so very important with this traditional therapy.

The benefits of Shiatsu are multifaceted, both physically and mentally. The focus is on "Ki" (energy), and its movement through the body. Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage has many applications for reducing stress, including work related and sports injuries.

My peaceful studio is conveniently located in Manhattan, at 21 East 1st Street (near 2nd Avenue). Sessions may also be scheduled in your home or office. You may contact me for further information and appointments at: 917-941-1396 or email
