Senior Therapist Ruth Anselm, LMT is a graduate of the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences. Her insight into the workings of the body began years ago as a professional dancer and gymnast. Later, she began to share her knowledge and awareness of the body as a teacher of yoga.
Today, she takes all of this experience to the next level by helping her clients find relief and strength in their bodies with her massage work, as well as provide education about how they can continue to heal and improve on their own. Ruth hopes that through her work she can bring back the full range of her clients' possibilities for movement, growth and resilience within their body and beyond.
She loves to sew and is working to start a line of clothing on the side. She also enjoys the outdoors, especially during the fall when the light hits the changing leaves. She's quite sure that she could ever get enough of traveling to other countries, meeting new people and eating food.

One of the best healers I’ve ever known

Ruth is wonderful! I travel between NYC & DC, and look forward to seeing Ruth whenever I'm in NY and can coordinate our schedules. Her therapy has given me a considerable amount of relief, and I would rate her as the best massage therapist and one of the best healers I've ever known.

One of the best massages I have ever experienced.

I had a massage on Monday October 23rd with Ruth Anselm. It was one of the best massages I have ever experienced. She did not simply work on ‘autopilot’ but Instead was intuitively reading what my body needed & working on my needs as an individual. I will absolutely be returning to Ruth again in the future.

Really targets and heals the pain points

Ruth is very consultative, and really targets and heals the pain points. I really like the massage style that the therapists at Bodyworks DW use. It's different from what other spas or clinics offer, and I really feel the difference in my body from getting consistent massage.

I can truly find relief

Ruth is an amazing therapist. She's extremely in tune with the body and really listens to your muscles and specific pain points. After a herniated disc compounded by a tough pregnancy, I can truly find relief after seeing her. She (and Bodyworks in general) has kept me pain free for a long time. I could not be more grateful!

My saving grace

Ruth has been my saving grace in helping me recover from a herniated disc injury. She has a strong technical understanding of the body as well as an unspoken intuition and does very deep work! She is happy to hone in on your trouble area or provide a well balance massage. Thanks Ruth!

One of the best

Highly recommend Bodyworks. I've been to many massage therapists over the years, and believe Ruth at Bodyworks to be one of the best in the business. As a competitive triathlete, I frequently come in with issues that need work and I always leave feeling far better than when I entered. Given Ruth's expertise, it's clear that Bodyworks cares immensely about having the best therapists in NYC. Again, I highly recommend.

Quick results

I was in extreme pain, couldn’t move my neck and could barely walk in a right position. After my massage, I felt so much better!! It is unbelievable how I got better so fast. I’m very happy and can’t wait for my next appointment.
