Jonathan Thaler went to the Swedish Institute and has been practicing as a licensed massage therapist since 1989. He is also a licensed acupuncturist since 1996.
Shiatsu was his first introduction to massage and it continues to be a central modality in his bodywork practice. However, Jonathan usually incorporates a combination of craniosacral technique, shiatsu, acupuncture or swedish massage into an individually tailored treatment session based on his clients needs and preferences at that moment.
A bachelor's degree in art, plus a masters degree in acupuncture highlights Jonathan's predominant strength: sensitivity and the great skills of his hands aided by in depth knowledge of human anatomy which he engages in all of his sessions .
Jonathan has worked integratively as a pain management specialist providing acupuncture at Hudson River Healthcare, a Medical clinic in Peekskill NY. For fifteen years he was clinical supervisor for 10 auricular acupuncture programs at alcoholism, addiction and mental health facilities around the NY metro area (Auricular or EAR acupuncture is used to relieve symptoms of withdrawal in addicts and help create emotional balance, a sense of wellbeing.)
A perpetual student, Jonathan has studied a myriad of massage and energetic bodywork techniques, yoga and meditation practices for over 30 years, group and personal counseling and for an RN nursing degree, with an in depth study of anatomy and physiology as it relates to the emotional body.
Jonathan was on the teaching staff as a Shiatsu Instructor at the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Mt. Kisco NY and continues to work privately and at Massage Envy Spa in Bedford Hills NY.
