“Skilled touch, compassion, humor, dedication, communication, and education… few therapists have them all, and it’s a pleasure to work with those who do. Kiambu is one of those special individuals. He always lights up the room…any room he enters.”

“I am quite impressed with the comprehension of advanced bodywork training that I have observed Kiambu Dickerson participating. Especially in the areas of Orthopedic Massage-A Structural Approach to Pain Management and Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques. Kiambu seems to immediately grasp the multidisciplinary concepts of these advanced modalities and integrate these techniques extremely well into his vast array of pain management and sports injury/sports enhancement training.”

“As an individual who was suffering from degenerative arthritis of the hip, I could barely walk without pain. Mr. Dickerson was able to stretch and release my hip so that I could continue without surgery for another year. It allowed me to get my private business affairs in order. After I had surgery for a total hip replacement, I came back to Mr. Dickerson. He was able to help me strengthen my muscles and maintain my range of motion.

Perhaps most importantly, he worked hard on reducing the scarring and soft tissue adhesions that occur after any kind of surgery. In my orthotic and prosthetic practice I have seen what kind of pain an limitations these can produce, and they are almost never taken into consideration by doctors or patients.”

“I am pleased with the depth of inquiry Kiambu Dickerson engages in with seeking answers to his clients presentations. He dove in head first in learning the Hesch Method of treating the lumbopelvic-hip complex and very quickly, thoroughly mastered the basic and intermediate work and is deep in the advanced work. He also attended a tutorial on the rest of the body and is quickly integrating this unique viscoelastic creep and mechanoreceptor modulation form of whole-body work. Kiambu is driven to the betterment of his clients and I am very honored to participate in his professional development. He is a rare individual, a high-calibre clinician and to whatever degree I spur him on, he does the same to me and I am very grateful. I am happy to endorse his work.”

Kiambu Dickerson can feel your pain. Literally. Through his well-trained hands, the massage therapist can find where a body is harboring its hurts and gently persuade the tissue to let down its guard. A practitioner of orthopedic massage, which is both full-body and oriented to specific sites, he recognizes that a disturbance in one area can lead to systemic dysfunction. He can figure out a lot about a person just from massaging their muscles. “People often carry around with them old injuries both emotional and physical and they learn to live with them. They don’t realize it until you touch them, which can set off a powerful emotional release.” Before he approaches a client, he spends time centering himself. “I have to work with intention, never to ‘fix’ anyone or impose my ideas about how a person should function but to support the body in its natural inclination,” he says. Early in his career, Dickerson worked in a clinic for HIV-positive patients. “That was very powerful,” he reports, “as most had not been touched by anyone for a long time.” Now codirector of New York Orthopedic Massage, he says his work “is geared toward getting people into a better state of health.” More >
