Her multifaceted experience enables her to tailor a treatment designed for your specific needs whether the goal is to simply relax, you are experiencing a specific dermatological concern, or you have a chronic injury/pain/stress that can be treated therapeutically.

Massage therapy is one of the oldest health care practices known to history. References to massage are found in Chinese medical texts more than 4,000 years old. Massage has been advocated in Western health care practices at least since the time of Hippocrates.

The roots of modern, scientific massage therapy go back to Per Henrik Ling (1776 - 1839), a Swede, who developed an integrated system consisting of massage and active and passive exercises. Ling established the Royal Central Gymnastic Institute in Sweden in 1813 to teach his methods.

Modern, scientific massage therapy was introduced in the United States in the 1850s by two New York physicians, brothers George and Charles Taylor, who had studied in Sweden. The first clinics for massage therapy in the United States were opened by two Swedish physicians after the Civil War period.

Generally, massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and the flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and enhance tissue healing. These effects provide a wide number of profound health benefits.

Robin Saltzman, LAc, Dipl Ac

Robin Saltzman is a NYS licensed Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist. She has been in practice since 1981, having a private practice in Stone Ridge for the past 25 years.

Acupuncture and Massage are both ancient practices. The client benefits from each techniques’ unique strengths. Massage is excellent for increasing circulation to an area. Robin uses Swedish, Deep tissue, Neuromuscular therapy, Reflexology, Polarity, Reiki; whatever is needed for the specific person.

Acupuncture is great for reducing inflammation, speeding up the healing process, decreasing pain, and releasing deep muscles that are in spasm (contracted) and are difficult to access. Robin has found that the combination of Acupuncture and Massage, for musculoskeletal problems, in a treatment session, dramatically increases results.
Acupuncture stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine practices. Practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting fine, sterile needles into specific sites (Acupuncture points), along the body’s meridians, to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of Qi through the patient.     

In addition to musculoskeletal problems (back and neck pain, etc.), acupuncture successfully treats conditions ranging from migraine headaches, anxiety, insomnia, depression, nausea, digestive disorders, and many other issues.
