After 27 years of massaging friends and family, and their firm encouragement, I decided to become a massage therapist. So I went to the New Center (now known as New York College of Health Professions) to learn the fundamentals of being a healer.
I graduated in 2000 from the New York College and received an Associates degree in Massage Therapy, got my license. I have been working to help those I meet with my new knowledge since.
I also have a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Social Work and am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and New York Society Of Medical Massage Therapists.
Iím experienced at treating many different conditions including sports and other injuries; muscular aches, pains, strains and sprains; carpal tunnel syndrome; stiff neck and shoulders; stress relief and general relaxation. I'm trained in many techniques including AMMAģ Therapy, Manual Trigger Point Therapy, Medical Massage, European Massage and various forms of stretching which help increase flexibility and range of motion.
To your health,
Jim Burdeshaw, LMT
