I was introduced to Laurie Towers of Physical Advantage well over 5 years ago by a Broadway dancer friend who swears by this as the ONLY massage therapy center for performing artists. I was having a period of intense sinus trouble mixed with powerful work-oriented anxiety and these amounted to an ongoing series of migraine headaches--the kind that could probably kill a horse! Laurie worked carefully with me, not only offering medically sound pressure points to break up the muscles in the neck, jaw and temples (which had by then felt more like atrophies that anything else), but by easing te pain and strain in the tense muscles in my shoulders and neck as well. After 1 session I was able to get back to work (no, not a dancer but a journalist) and make my deadlines. With ongoing pressure on the job, I made a decision to keep a regular schedule at Physical Advantage, where I not only have massage therapy but fitness tips and exercise prescription. Without these, it would be impossible to sit for hours at end at my computer, as I must do on a daily basis. Thank you Laurie Towers for being there for the entire arts community in NYC! I have even referred her to performers and writers who travel internationally; some have told me that it is worth the trip to fly in from Paris.
