MATTHEW SEILLER
Massage Therapist  
 

Matthew is a NYS licensed massage therapist with a passion for bodywork and an affinity for music, born and raised on the Upper West Side of NYC. His modalities include Prenatal Massage, traditional therapeutic and deep tissue massage, craniosacral (a light-touch technique which helps to stimulate the flow of spinal fluid from the cranium to the sacrum) , Postural Analysis (allows the therapist to determine the current position of the body and tells him how to “break it down” for the purpose of working the client into a more harmonious posture), and Corrective Exercise Training (expect homework!) as well. Matthew believes that through proper alignment, deep breath work and nervous system stimulation – and, of course, supportive bodywork – the body is given the right parameters to heal and correct itself. Matthew’s commitment to long-term corrective care is apparent in his work, and he is excited to help the Medical Massage Group’s clients to achieve just that.
