Name:  Jaja Bolden   Hometown:  NYC   Training:  Ohashi Institute, NYC, Swedish Institute, NYC   Offerings at MBSY:  Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Shiatsu   Why did you become a healer?:  In my genes, soul and spirit. The study of the inner energetic and physiology of the body is a natural attraction for me. Saying anything else would be like calling The Dao...The Dao.   Your healing philosophy:  Create a new you because returning to what you were has past.   Life outside the studio:  Anime. Meditation. Food. Study. Chi-Kung. Sleep....not necessarily in that order.   Life philosophy/Favorite quote:  'What more can be said...about anything.' - Me

Name:  Adam Alexander   Hometown:  Russia, Moscow   Training:  CUNY School Of Queens (2009).   Offerings at MBSY:  Swedish, Deep-tissue, Therapeutic, Thai massage.   Why did you become a healer?:  I become a healer, because it comes naturally to me, it happens almost itself.   My healing philosophy is:  I usually tell everyone: "Try to get a massage once a month and stay healthy!" Yoga, exercises, clean diet, and good sleep is the path to longevity!   Life outside of the studio:  My full-time occupation right now is a lot of hard work in a office in downtown Manhattan at the Arbitration Incorporated Association. I live in Washington Heights, and I love being a part-time healer at MBSY in order to help community to feel better and I get to meet more interesting and exciting people!   My Life philosophy:  This is my favorite subject...I would like to find the answers on at least some of the rhetorical questions: Why are we here? Who created the Universe? Where are we going? What is the meaning of life?, etc. I consider myself as philosopher who is looking for the answers, and that's my philosophy for now....

Name: Nina Alexander  Hometown: Port Jefferson, NY  Training: Swedish Institute, Upledger Institute  Offerings at MBSY:  · Swedish  · Deep Tissue  · CranioSacral  · Myofascial Release  · Trigger Point Muscular Therapy  · 60 minute focus on stress relief  · Aromatherapy  Why did you become a healer?  A client leaves the table with a calmer mind, lower blood pressure and a stronger immune system. There are so may forces in the modern world working against our health; I love doing work that restores, repairs and relieves pain.  What is your healing philosophy?  It is much easier to maintain health than to fix what goes wrong when we neglect that care. Massage, yoga, and meditation are not indulgences, but powerful tools to keep ourselves at our best.  What is your life like outside the studio?  I love to read both fiction and non-fiction. A long walk in Ft Tryon or Inwood Hill Park makes any day better. “Creative Hour” with the family is great too.  Life philosophy:  “Until you make the unconscious conscious it will rule your life and you will call it fate.” -Carl Jung
