Massage Therapy

If I could make a wish, I would wish to begin each day in the accomplished hands of Karen Zuckerman. Karen is as highly skilled at assessing ones musculoskeletal needs as she is at the resolution of their aches and pains. – dfdelbene

Yo yo, I know you, you’re the punter who’s always thought you could benefit from regular massage, but you’ve never really found someone who you thought was genuinely worth the cash and effort. Congratulations, you just found her. It took me about 10 years (in several countries) to finally find someone who could make me go back regularly. Like the other reviewers I’ve been addicted to KZ’s skill, range and comfortable little studio atmosphere for several years now and there’s no turning back, she’s a life-saver. It’s impressive how progressive she remains also, learning new techniques and providing all-round advice. If like me you previously had a preference for stronger male hands because you prefer deep-tissue, fuhgeddaboudit, she’s the best at that too. Nuff said, get booked in fast if she can still fit you in. Peace out. – redbelly

After numerous surgeries on my hip and knee combined with the daily impact of walking the streets in the Big Apple, I finally sought refuge with Karen. My first visit was two years ago and now I’m a weekly client. Karen is very attentive to the highly variable needs of my body. She listens extremely well and adapts her techniques accordingly each week. She truly provides an oasis in this high energy city. From head to toe, I leave her studio feeling calm, relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to face another week. – tlwtpc

Karen in a word, “FANTASTIC”. whatever ails you, she will customize her message to suit your needs. My problem consisted of pain in the upper left shoulder/back area. Karen is an expert in that area. It is almost as of she can feel your pain and then she takes steps to address/remove that pain. I stated going to her 3 years ago and have not looked back. Her messages are addicting. She has great hands, is knowlegeable and friendly. She is simply the best. – peebees

Whether you are looking for relaxation, stress relief, or hoping to heal an injury or increase flexibility, Karen is a great choice. For those of you new to bodywork or fearing an overdose of incense, new age music, and chakra-speak, no worries – Karen’s practice, from technique to the decoration of her studio, is done with care, attention and style. – s_locascio

Three years I was finishing my doctoral dissertation and I had a tremendous amount of pain in my upper left shoulder/back region. I was receiving a massage from a therapist and after working on me, she recommended that I see Karen because Karen was particularly good with shoulder blade problems. Indeed, Karen is masterful. (Ask her to stretch you.) She is able to work on my back (and of course other areas), like no one else. I admit it–I’m a massage junkie. Moreover, I prefer deep-tissue massages, and in the past I tended to prefer male massage therapists. After one session with Karen I was a convert. Her small clean, bright, white studio is inviting and relaxing. A must for real massage junkies. – tonipole

Karen is the only massage therapist I have found that customizes massages. She really listens, and always knows exactly what techniques to use so that I leave her office feeling renewed. As an avid runner, I used to think that I just had to live with my injuries, like plantar fasciaitis. Now that Ive been going to Karen, my injuries are nonexistent. Shes the best! – gviolet_nyc

Working in front of a computer most of the time has left its toll on my shoulders and back but Karen has always been able to set me straight again. She even suggested a few exercises that I was able to incorporate into my workday and her advice has helped me to feel better and improve my posture. She keeps a monthly newsletter with health and wellness related topics that are always a fun and interesting read. She is extremely knowledgeable about alternative and complimentary therapies and modalities. Make sure to try her ear candling! I can definitely recommend her services. – hzsch

I was suffering from severe back pain caused from a sport’s injury. Karen saw me immediately and used various massage techniques to help alleviate the pain. Not only did the massage provide incredible relief, but Karen had a lot of good tips to deal with the soreness. Massage was a good value and Karen is a knowledgeable and caring therapist. – cicerone10

For over two years I’ve been going to Karen’s cozy little work studio for massages, and several people I’ve recommended to her have become steady, die-hard clients as well. Her manner is super friendly and informal, yet very professional. She’s always expanding her training and knowledge; so in addition to plain old killer massage (thai style, shiatsu, or swedish) she offers hot stone therapy and “ear candling” – which I’ve never had done, but how obscure and cool is that? She’s also really affordable – esp. if you buy in 5 or 10 session blocks (which is a big expense at once, but you’ll probably go back, so it’s worth it for the savings.) Great location in Union Square area. – miss_pink

Karen is highly professional, personable, caring and warm. She gives great value, is reasonably priced and is very skilled. She gives one of the best massages in town. I am a very satisfied customer! – jzmeyers

I’ve been going to Karen for at least a year now and since I started seeing her she has been my only masseuse. It’s great having such personal attention from someone who truly understands the human body, and what’s even better, she’s intelligent (and speaks English, unlike so many other massage therapists in the city). She even offers to do research on health problems I’m experiencing to see if she knows of a massage technique that would help relieve my symptoms. She has extensive knowledge in a wide range of therapies, so don’t be afraid to ask her to do something differently. Her office is kind of hard to find but she keeps it looking nice always smelling great. She offers packages that help save money too. I highly recommend her and almost don’t want to send this so that I can keep her schedule free for me! – jocelynpo

Karen is a wonderful therapist. She is caring and professional, and has great hands. Her studio is very relaxing and quiet, I like it better then a large spa because I feel as though I am being treated as an individual. I have recommended her to friends and my patients. – aiyanaacupuncture

MELT method

I became curious about MELT a few months back when a friend of mine told me about a workshop that she was planning on taking. I didn’t know much about it, and was a little trepidatious. Karen eased my worries from the moment the workshop began. Her wealth of knowledge of how the body works came through in her teaching. She took time to explain the technique, and address individual concerns and issues everyone had. She explained the subtle movements very clearly, and I found her to be an amazing teacher. After just the first MELT workshop I realized how the technique could really help relieve pain and tension in my body. I’ve enjoyed working with Karen since that first workshop, and have recommended her to many of my friends. – Kyra C.

MELT is simply amazing.  You can feel the results in your body immediately after “MELTING.” Taking classes with Karen has helped me to reduce pain in my neck and lower back.  Karen is an incredible instructor, she gently guides you into understanding how to release tension in your body and feel better on a day-to-day basis. – Natalie W.

Karen is both a healer and a teacher. Her understanding of human physiology and psychology is abundant in her work in licensed massage therapy and as a clear and motivating instructor of the MELT program for hands, feet, and body. I’ve experienced and benefited greatly from both. It has been the most joyful process with Karen: one that has eliminated pain and given me a fundamental sense of well being. – Melissa N.

Fluid Core

Thank you for a truly great class. I feel that in many ways I am still feeling the benefits of the class. You truly opened up my eyes about the importance of the Psoas and have been focusing on movement with the that muscle. I would love to take more classes with you both MELT and Fluid Core. I have also told a friend and I am sending her the info. – Vivana P.

I felt incredible after the class and slept like a baby. So peacefully, I could not believe it. Here’s the other strange thing…I’ve been suffering with allergies for the past two weeks and yesterday I was really a mess but after the class they seemed to have disappeared! Is that possible? Crazy. –Andrea Y.
