Other Useful Links
Finger Lakes School of Massage
Ithaca & Westchester Branches
The Finger Lakes School of Massage (FLSM for short) is David's alma matter, and as such he's a bit biased about them 🙂 While there are several amazing massage therapy schools in NY, FLSM's balanced and progressive program continues to produce top notch therapists who truly lead the field. If you are thinking about going to massage school, David will tell you to go here. Yes it's not right in the city, and yes, the full time program (which David took) is actually full time (m-f 9-5! + clinic time). However, you'll graduate and be working in the field way sooner than most and be considered among the best of the best. Did we mention that David's biased?
Aikido of Park Slope
630 Sackett St
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Aikido of Park Slope is another of David's alma matters, in the sense that he's been practicing Aikido there under the amazing guidance of sensei Hal Lehrman since 1996! Hal's dojo is a wonderful place of fun, learning, growth, and badassery. While steeped in tradition, it's open and friendly, inviting, and not stuffy like a lot of martial arts dojos. Hal's teaching broadens out from the physical art of aikido to the overall philosophy embodied in the art of finding peace, harmony, and community even with our "attackers." The amount of influence that aikido has had on David's massage style cannot be understated 🙂 This is where David got his black belt in both Aikido and in life.
