"Can't say enough good things about Edd. When I came to him my back was in constant pain. It had been to close to a year. Nothing had worked. Not a chiropractor, not a previous acupunturist, nothing. It would hurt to do anything, not just any phyiscal activity but just geting out of bed. After sessions wth Edd my back feels unbelievable. I can train again pain free. I recommend to anyone with back pain to go see Edd. very talented and great to deal with. I know from now on when my back acts up Edd will be my first call."
Dave, New York
“This past year I have been working out with Edd, who in addition to being a top personal trainer is also a licensed massage therapist. As a cancer survivor, Edd and I planned a fitness routine combining balance and flexibility with strength training and endurance. With a combination of yoga, Qigong, aerobic and core exercise, I’ve discovered my body and fitness level to be noticeably improved with each session. Once a month, we switch up the routine, where I get to relax 'spa style' with a 50-minute massage by Edd in the gym’s private massage room.”
Lisa, New York
"I felt so spoiled and well taken care of by Edd. He asked so many questions ahead of time to get such a thorough history of not only where I carry stress or how I sleep but also of any past or present injuries (for which he prefers to see an MRI) it was like getting a massage from a medical professional as well as a gifted therapist. As a result I trust him implicitly and have recommended him to a friend with chronic back problems. I left relaxed, soothed and with Tai Chi exercises and tips to keep my shoulders a little looser. I felt the difference within days."
Melinda, New York
"I've been going to Edd for several sessions now; sometimes for the same thing, sometimes different. It's amazing that Edd takes the time to listen to your problems, even asking about them in detail days before the appointment so he can customize the session specific to your needs. His touch is sensitive to the bod and very effective; I just came back from a pretty physically intensive trip; my neck, shoulders and all around are super tight, and Edd was one of the first calls I made when I got back to get an appointment!"
Metta, New York
"I have had massages in cities all over the world and Edd's massage is in the top 2. He has powerful yet gentle hands, he creates a peaceful and safe space and his caring nature moves down through his hands. I was so completely relaxed after his massage. My husband has never had a massage but Edd's magic worked wonders on his stiff neck."
“I really like the way Edd actually takes the time to listen to you and cater to your specific needs. The last time I went to him I had a huge amount of tension in my shoulders. They were literally like rocks. He was very patient to work through my rock-like shoulders. They felt amazing after and he even emailed me the next day to make sure I was drinking enough water and feeling alright. I also liked that he was open to educating me on the different types of massage and their benefits so I could decipher for myself whether I getting the type of treatment I wanted. I would say that all around it was the ideal massage session."
Tracy, New York
“Edd is conscientious and caring as a massage therapist. I found the massage space thoughtfully designed and immaculate. Edd was very sensitive as a practitioner, asking careful questions about where my physical problems were located, and addressing my concerns in a way that was supportive and effective. He was very thorough, and took his time to give me a treatment that was among the best I have experienced. He is a real professional at the healing work he does."
“Although I hadn't had a massage in a long time, my headache-inducing stress and the tension in my upper back and shoulders recently got the better of me, and I booked an appointment with Edd. He gave an amazing, incredibly thorough massage, which left me feeling much looser and more relaxed, both that day and for a good while afterward. Edd seriously knows what he's doing, and I can't recommend him highly enough. I know I'll be back myself!"
Brett, New York
“After a really stressful week at work, I found myself suffering from terrible pain and stiffness in my neck. I went to Edd and he went to work on my neck and shoulders. Now the massage felt great but the really amazing thing is when I woke up in the morning all the pain and stiffness was gone! He's a magician, really!"
Michael, New York
“I went to Edd with serious lower back pain. Edd took the time to find out about my whole lifestyle and what could be contributing to the stress in my back. He is hugely knowledgeable and skilled; I like how he incorporates different modalities into his massage, both deep tissue and Thai. He has a holistic sense of health and well-being that goes far beyond simply muscles and tissue. Plus he's good looking and a sharp dresser; what more could you want?”
Gayatri, New York City
"A very good friend of mine had been seeing Edd for a few months. He was constantly talking about his sessions, and how great he'd feel afterwards. At the time, I was dealing with sporadic neck pain due to stress and anxiety, and basically relying on Advil. I'd had acupuncture before, but the results were not great. My friend sent me to Edd as a birthday gift. Well it was really the best gifts I've ever received. I've now been seeing him for over six months, and I can honestly say he's changed my life. Edd is a true healer. The real deal. I was seeing him in the beginning about once a week, and he was specifically concentrating on my neck pain. I no longer have that pain. Occasionally I feel a little tightness coming on, and I immediately try and see Edd. He always finds time for me, despite having a full day booked. We're now working on a little insomnia I've been dealing with as well as my general well being. I leave Edd's studio always feeling better not only physically, but emotionally as well. His treatments are NOT painful. He's kind, caring, compassionate and very professional. His studio is also quiet, super clean and inviting. I've told all my friends about Edd, and I would strongly encourage anyone who might be dealing with any kind of pain (especially if you're relying on pain medication), to make an appointment with him."
Alex, New York
"Edd is amazing! My boyfriend had been sick for over a week with the flu and judging by how I was starting to feel I knew I was going to be in the same boat. Someone had told me Edd does a treatment to expel colds and boy am I glad I tried it. After 60 min treatment of acupuncture and heat, Edd sent me home with herbal supplements. Within less then 48hrs my cold was completely gone. I'm not usually the type of person that would believe a cold could be expelled but Edd has made me a believer. I highly recommend Edd for this treatment as well as acupuncture and massage."
Marissa, New York
"I have a typical desk job working for a bank and I spend 14 - 15 hours a day hunched over my desk. Therefore, I am very prone to back problems. That coupled with the cold weather just completely ruins it for me. After tolerating the pain for 3 weeks, I went to my trusted acupuncturist Edd. As always, he’s fixed me! That said, it’s not surprising since he’s fixed bigger injuries of mine in the past. Edd has been my massage therapist and acupuncturist for 3 years now. If you are looking for true dedication, real talent, pro-active follow-up and education while you are it, look no further. He’s a dedicated individual and genuinely cares about fixing his clients. I also love that he works with my personal trainer and caters the treatment specifically to me. There are no admins and secretaries and departments to go through to, to get to Edd. It’s one on one service. I call him my white-glove service for physical well-being."
Pranav, New York
"I love working with Edd! As a trainer, I need my client's bodies to function optimally. When someone comes to me with an issue I can't fix, I refer them to Edd. He and I communicate about what's going on; what I'm doing to correct it, and how we can create an effective treatment plan. He works with my client to be sure their needs are met, giving them exercises and stretches to compliment the treatment. As a trainer Edd has been an amazing resource, he's the person I trust to really help my clients the way I would."
Anna, New York
"On post-surgical recovery - after a basketball injury and surgery on my ankle, I had challenges getting back to pain-free mobility. I did 6 months of physical therapy and kept running into other complications. Then I was introduced to Edd, who helped accelerate my road back to recovery. He designed a program of acupuncture and treatment to allow my ankle to heal properly, while getting back my range of motion and improving my overall health. I would fully recommend anyone paying Edd a visit because of his genuine care and interest to help improve your health."
Erik, New York
"I see Edd every week to keep deal with pain and injury from training all day - 6 days week. And I recommend all my clients see him. We’re always messing each other up in training and he understands how to treat the kinds of injuries we get."
Peter, New York
"Edd truly is a miracle worker. I have done Thai massage and traditional massage with him for years and always walked away feeling renewed. Now I have switched over to his Trigger Point Acupuncture - he basically reset my body and I am so grateful! No more discomfort anywhere. Edd is not only talented in his work, he is a beautiful and amazing human being who genuinely cares about your personal well being. He is a special healer."
Kim, New York
“I’ve worked with Edd for a year and see great improvement. He incorporates many approaches for flexibility and focusing on things most gyms don’t – better posture, better walking and body alignment. I’ve learned these are key to his philospohy versus the other gyms I’ve joined where trainers focus too much on strength building only. Yoga and strength building are combined into powerful workouts. I go 3x per week and love it.”
Elliot, New York
“I suppose the highest compliment you can give someone in the health and fitness industry is that they changed your quality of life for the better. That’s exactly what Edd did for me. My hip area, knees and neck interfered with me participating in activities with my children and activities I enjoyed doing. Before I met Edd I went to doctors and surgeons. One wanted to cut me open, one wanted to give me pills, and one just said, 'avoid everything that bothers you'. Working weekly with Edd has allowed me once again to teach karate classes, carry my daughters up stairs, and just feel better. I’m also happy to call Edd my friend. Thanks Edd!”
Stu, New York
“I highly recommend Edd's massage therapy. A recent massage left me feeling relaxed and renewed. Edd is extremely communicative, professional and intuitive. Working out of a charming space that is equal parts glam rock and underground speak-easy, Edd approaches his work with a solid background in physiology, great energy and wry humor. No matter what ails you, Edd's healing hands will improve your health and mood.”
