A Magician in Massage Therapist's Clothing – I first came to Kiambu Dickerson with a stiff and swollen reconstructed right big toe held together with three screws, a torn meniscus in my right knee, and poor posture. Over the following three years I re-fractured a wrist, separated my right shoulder, and developed plantar fasciitis in my left foot. He has managed to heal or correct all of the aforementioned physical pathologies, and drastically changed the quality of my daily life. The pain that I had resolved to just live with is gone, and many of the imbalances in my body that occured as a result of compensating have been corrected. His philosophy of healing my chronic injuries rather than temporarily remedy them was key to my recovery. Combining massage training, unusual intuition, instruction, and energy manipulation, he is stretching the boundaries of what is possible in his field, and I am grateful for what he has done for me.
Life Transforming Bodywork – As a licensed massage therapist and acupuncturist for over twenty years, I am very knowlegeable about alternative therapies, and I'm also very particular about the quality of the treatment I seek for my own physical challenges. Kiambu Dickerson is an outstanding bodywork therapist, and one of the finest I've ever worked with. I have been working with Kiambu to address the chronic pain I live with due to a functional scoliosis, and I have experienced a dramatic improvement. The headaches I would wake up with nearly every morning are now a thing of the past, and Kiambu has helped me regain much of the neck, shoulder and spinal mobility I thought were lost to my youth. With his guidance, I have also begun a specific set of daily exercises that are working together with his treatment to help maintain and further the freedom of movement I am now enjoying.
Kiambu's work is deep but sensitive ,and reflects a profound understanding of human energy. I have also received treatment from Ann Taylor, who I found to be an equally gifted body worker. The office is clean, peaceful and inviting, and the support staff is lovely. Kiambu and Ann share the space with Dr. Steven McMahon, a highly skilled chiropractor whom I also see for treatment. Office hours are flexible, and morning, evening and Saturday appointments can be scheduled. I highly recommend New York Orthopedic Massage for the kind of bodywork treatment that can transform your life.
Amazing Healing Massage – Within a few visits, Kiambu Dickerson was able to relieve my decades-old back and shoulder problems. Kiambu is clearly a dedicated healer and is skilled at assessing and addressing misalignment issues. I was impressed by all the different strategies he uses ? stretching, resistance, breathing, focused pressure ? and he offers advice on how to maintain posture and alignment on your own. I sincerely can?t remember the last time my back was pain-free! Also, the office is clean and inviting. The front-desk is very gracious and there?s a wonderful chiropractor there as well. I?ve been getting professional massage for years and this is the first time I?ve had lasting benefits. Kiambu is outstanding - I recommend him emphatically!
Relief and Education! – I have gone to Anne Taylor numerous times and leave feeling amazing and with tools to keep my ailments at bay. I am a runner and she has helped me relieve various leg and hip issues in addition to teaching me after care stretching and strength exercises to avoid reinjury. They worked! I successfully trained for and completed my first NYC Marathon! I've also seen her for a pinched nerve in my neck which she also successfully treated. NY Orthopedic Massage provides a warm, welcoming, and professional atmosphere for massage therapy. Anne is very knowledgable and has many connections for referrals (doctors, yoga, etc...). I have also met Kiambu and he exudes knowledge and comfort as well. Every serious NYC runner should go to NY Orthopedic Massage for injury therapy and prevention!

Extraordinary Massage, Amazing Hands – I have enjoyed the benefits of these superb licensed massage therapists for several years. On various occasions, they have eased the pain in my sore muscles after strenuous physical workouts; smoothed out the knots caused by stress and/or too much sitting in front of the computer; helped me maintain the benefits of chiropractic adjustment; and aided my recovery from a whiplash injury. After every visit, I feel relaxed and more flexible. They are pleasant and professional, highly skilled and knowledgeable, and continue to study new techniques and applications. Their facility is clean and comfortable, and they LISTEN to you to find out what you need before beginning each massage. They're the best!!
