Kiambu Dickerson (owner and founder)
Kiambu is a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). He is a graduate of the Swedish Institute where he received an Associates Degree in Occupational Studies in 1999. He has been gaining clinical experience since 2000 and has accumulated hundreds of hours of advanced certifications in orthopedic massage, Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, NeuroKinetic Therapy™, P-DTR , Anatomy In Motion, The Hesch Method, and Anatomy Trains, having studied directly with the creators of each system. Kiambu mentored as a teaching assistant for Erik Dalton, Jerry Hesch, James Waslaski and David Weinstock.
Kiambu is committed to helping his clients understand and recover from their conditions, chronic pain, or injuries. Kiambu practices an integrated Neuro-Orthopedic approach to bodywork incorporating all he knows to achieve pain free function in the body. Kiambu identifies the source of the problem and restores proper neuromuscular responses through cutting edge proprioception resets, and autonomic stabilization exercises that reverse hypertonicity (muscle spasm) and muscle inhibition (weakness). When done prior to tissue mobilization, the pattern of muscle guarding and joint splinting is broken and formerly sensitive muscles and joints can contract, and be stretched without signaling pain and dysfunction. Range of motion and motor control is optimized and pain ameliorates.
