Edan is a licensed massage therapist who specializes in orthopedic massage and Ortho-Bionomy. His practice is dedicated to working with active New Yorkers, providing them with the most comprehensive pain and tension relief so they can perform better and live with more ease and comfort.
Edan is no stranger to illness, pain and suffering. Growing up, he had to have numerous major surgeries for multiple physical conditions. Additionally, he has experience with broken bones and a ruptured achilles tendon from sports and dance injuries. He also used to suffer from cluster headaches regularly and from the age of 18-21 he was struggling with anxiety. At the age of 21, Edan was diagnosed with a debilitating illness which caused him to make some major changes in his life.
Dealing with all these setbacks has given Edan the experience and capacity to work with others who are suffering from any of the above mentioned conditions and more.
A firm believer in the inseparable connection between body/mind, he’s a proponent of bodywork and the healing arts for relieving physical as well as emotional stress and he strongly believes in bodywork as a viable modality for enhancing overall health and well-being. He feels this way, because bodywork and the healing arts provided him with the healing breakthroughs that he needed and now he wants to share that with you.
In addition to his private sessions, he also teaches massage to couples who want to learn about this healing art. He has taught both in person and online at the New York Open Center, The Learning Annex and at various workshops and retreats throughout the US. He is dedicated to bringing massage to as many people as possible because he believes that massage is essential to stress reduction and simply feeling better overall. By sharing his knowledge with couples in a comfortable environment he intends to demystify the very intuitive and natural practice of massage.
In his free time, Edan enjoys dancing and other movement arts (such as the Ido Portal Method), in-line skating and longboarding, slacklining, snowboarding, surfing, traveling and spending time in nature.
