Much of that is due to your help – your massages have helped her immensely, and, from you, she has learned that investing time in her own wellness is a gift not only to herself, but to those who love her.” - Marsha Weinstein

Healing Hands

Massage can be so much more than spreading oil and helping someone to relax," claims Cory Schifano, licensed massage therapist at Berkshire Bodywork. Her loyal clients would be the first to agree, having experienced the sublime work of her hands, which can be alternately nurturing, energizing, and/or healing. In her twelve years of massage practice, Schifano has never given the same session twice, not even to the same client. "Those who've been coming to me for years still say "That's new. You've never done that before,'" she reports. "I'm always trying to be present to what an individual's needs are that day." To change the choreography of each massage for particular pains or problems, Shifano relies on her extensive training and especially the wisdom of her hands. "Over time my hands have learned what normal feels like in many different bodies." She says that making clients happy is the best part of her job, but adds, "I also like surprising people who thought they were just going to get a nice massage." --EK
