Brooklyn >Dharma Healing Arts Studio
“turned my mother (who lives in Manhattan) onto Lauren and she's willing to make the trek out to Brooklyn despite having a great massage place across the street.”
“The staff (Lauren and Lindsey) are both super nice and really helpful.”
Best Place for a Massage!. Dharma is a wonderful place to get a massage. The staff (Lauren and Lindsey) are both super nice and really helpful. Before each massage you fill out a form about where you have pain / discomfort / etc. and they talk to you about where you need work and what they think the best approach for your issues are. They also talk to you during the massage to make sure the pressure is good and they are not hurting anything as they work. They are obviously both very well trained in human physiology and really help you to feel better and I highly recommend Dharma Healing Arts!
Editorial Review. Massage therapist performs a variety of styles from hot stone to deep muscle methods; licensed accupuncturist also available.
massage heaven!. i never write reviews, but i had to share (though at my own peril since it may now be much harder to get appointments!) how great dharma healing arts is. i was referred to dharma by a friend who raved about her massage. i went in for deep tissue massage: unlike other massage places, dharma understands DEEP tissue. i left feeling relaxed & sufficiently sore. knots were worked out. staff are super friendly. & the facilities are great. no pretentious attitude. so great, i signed up for a series of massages and am going again this weekend for another one. seriously 5 stars.
Best ever, anywhere!.
I first visited Lauren several days after injuring my neck and after visiting another massage spa in Manhattan which was unsuccessful in helping work out the kinks. Lauren's massage was amazing, and was truly a great help in the healing process - both in helping the injury recover faster and in relieving the symptoms i was feeling. As others have said, she likewise gave me several stretches to help the problem areas.
Lauren's knowledge about the body and how to heal it is simply amazing, and she is a great therapist. She is truly concerned about her clients' well-being. Lauren always takes the time to learn what may be bothering you and is a master at working out those problems. She's always provided me with information and stretches to do once i leave each time i've gone there. This truly is the best massage and therapy around.
Best massage ever!!!. There is no better place to go for a massage than to Dharma. Lauren and her staff are incredibly thorough, warm and professional. I have had massages at different spas and places all around the U.S. and this is the best. The steam room is really awesome, too!
Excellent Massage. I have had multiple massages at the Dharma Healing Arts Studio and was extremely pleased with each experience. I enjoy massages and have indulged at various spas including "world class" resorts and believe that the treatment at Dharma stands up to any of them. Highly Recommended!
pinpointed hand movements still radiating through my muscles.
I have a regular massage therapist in Manhattan; however, I got a gift certificate for a place in my neighborhood in Brooklyn--Dharma. I went last Sunday, and all I can say is it takes a lot to impress me with a massage, and WOW! It was as good as my regular therapist and yet absolutely different. The owner-therapist, Lauren, is one of the most giving practitioners I've ever met, and her work is wonderfully methodical. Days later, I felt as though her pinpointed hand movements were still radiating through my muscles.
Also, she said that sometime in the first quarter of 2008, Dharma's opening a new studio on Court St. complete with a Japanese style private soaking tub. I can't wait as that entire experience will probably feel like being at my own private spa--say versus the sharing you have to do in Manhattan!
This is my favorite place to get a massage! I have tried a number of places in the NYC and am very impressed with the level of service and care at Dharma.
Lauren gives excellent massages, but more importantly she is deeply concerned about your health and well being and suggests stretches and other changes to your day-to-day life, to improve your overall health. In my case, she has been an excellent source of information on preventing and managing migraines. Now that I have found her, I can't imagine going anywhere else.
Best of the Best. Lauren is a massage therapist who really impressed me from the start. She really knew how to take care of my knotted up tight shoulders and back, she used her hot stones to help relax the tightness, which felt unbelievable, was pretty deep pressure-wise but tolerable and she used lots of stretches for my neck... I definitely feel like I can turn my head better now and without the usual pain. I feel so much lighter is the best way to put it. Her work is just outstanding, well above the rest-
Excellent Massage Therapist!. I've had quite a lot of massage, and Lauren is one of the very best therapists I've ever been to. She's incredibly knowledgable about the body, injuries, and natural approaches to healing. While very relaxing, her massage is also extremely effective: I went to her with a pulled muscle in my knee and the day after my massage I was walking perfectly again. She also suggested some stretches and postural adjustments to help prevent further injury. She's friendly and professional, and her studio is a peaceful and relaxing space. I recommend her very highly.
