Massage—There's a better way...

In a peaceful, secluded & private, quiet studio


Using a blend of Eastern & Western massage techniques including myofacsial release, passive stretching & Ortho-Bionomy style feet work, my medical massage techniques create systemic relaxation and pain relief.  Bodywork By Ellen specifically designs the session for you and the treatment you need.

A little about me...


As a young woman I suffered for a time from the debilitating pain of chronic stiff neck.  I understand how pain affects everything from the limitation of activities to one's general sense of well being in the day to day. 

I treated my condition with massage and it has never returned, and ultimately  translated into the restorative work that I strive to bring to each client session.

I graduated from the prestigious Swedish Institute-NYC at the top of my class in 2002 with 10 years additional training is in the areas of medical massage with a look to  Ortho-bionomy. 

Insured, and licensed by the  State of NY.

Here's what they're saying...


"Dear Eileen,     

Thank you so much for sending me to Ellen.  She is a miracle worker.  My feet have been hurting for years.  It's been painful to walk.  She worked on my feet and I no longer have any pain.  I don't think I'm limping anymore either. While some of the massage hurt, it has made me feel better. All of my muscles are tight and she told me I needed to drink more water. I woke up this morning and, for the first time in maybe 3 years, I got up without pain and was not at all stiff.  My posture has improved.  I'm going to see her again."  —Pam (neighborhood dog walker)

"I have traveled the globe, getting massage work wherever I go...  Bar none, Bodywork by Ellen is the best massage in the world!"— Author &  Contributor (British) Vogue Magazine— Polly Devlin

"Ellen is more than a medical massage therapist, she's a teacher.  She showed me how to relieve "desk stress" to keep my creative juices flowing." — D.L. Kaplan (Creative Advertising)

Balancing home and work...?

It can be challenging.

But, client-centered medical massage is both an immediate and long-term strategy toward general wellness and the joy of good living. Trying my bodywork, you’ll love how you feel and the results last!
