Sophie is a licensed massage therapist in New Jersey. She graduated at the top of her class from the Therapeutic Massage & Training Center in Westfield, NJ, and maintains strong working relationships with her mentors. Sophie has a strong interest in myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and reciprocal inhibition. She uses these modalities, among others, to customize each session.

Sophie holds a master level certification in Neural Reset Therapy (NRT), the first certified NRT therapist in the state of NJ. She is also currently undergoing training with Z-Health Performance Solutions, a revolutionary brain based approach to movement.

Additionally, Sophie is a certified Pilates instructor through the Kane School of Core Integration in NYC. Whether the goals are to increase overall strength, recovery from injury, or both, Sophie tailors each session for the individual. She uses her training in bodywork, anatomy, and applied neurology to inform her work with clients, giving the client a well-rounded session each time to achieve individual goals.

Sophie believes that each body has the ability to heal itself if given the proper tools. Having a background in psychology, she thinks effective communication, respect, and client education are key components to developing a solid working relationship with each person.
