Introducing Brilliant Feminine Massage

Posted in Uncategorized

“I have to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” ~Audre Lorde Our femininity is vital and sacred. I want to help you attend to your essence–your body–to hold all your fiery power within and burst through the world like the beautiful beast you are. […]

Massage Editorial in the NY Times

Jessica Wolf wrote a very personal story about the emotional benefits of massage for the New York Times last month. While massage therapists are not psychotherapists and should never act as such, massage can illuminate the synthesis of mind and body.


What Lia's customers are saying.

  • John H., Brooklyn, NY

    She healed my lower legs. Her touch is incredibly sensitive and she listens very specifically to where the tension is. Highly recommend!

    Lia is amazing. Go see her.  She helped me through choreographer Sarah Michelson’s process and show. She is super sensitive and strong and her work is very detailed. She did some awesome things in my lower legs/ankles/feet. Really deep amazing work. I’ve learned so much lying on her table. I highly, highly recommend her!

  • Amy B., New York, New York

    Lia makes my body feel whole again. I come to her with muscles that feel so angry and inflamed that it seems they are separate beings from the rest of my body, and Lia manages to work everything back into its proper place. Her work is exactly what I need each time I see her, and she is always able to find sticky spots I didn’t even know I had. I could not possibly speak more highly of Lia’s sensitive and energetically spot-on work. I would go to her over any other type of body work any day, and I recommend literally everyone I know to her.

    - Amy B., New York, New York
  • Timothy H., Brooklyn, NY

    Lia is always completely welcoming and professional. She works insightfully, sensitively, attentively and with surprising, efficient strength. Very recommended!

    - Timothy H., Brooklyn, NY
  • Dave B., Brooklyn, NY

    Lia has done more for my well being than any other practitioner I have ever seen.  Her ability to isolate and treat the source of the pain that I have in my arms and shoulders demonstrate her detailed understanding of trigger points and referred pain.  Many lesser therapists simply attack the symptoms; Lia will go after the source.  My work as a drummer introduces a lot of stress into my body and I wouldn’t be able to stay as focused without Lia.
