Briana Goldstrow, LMT
Briana has always been interested in healing the body through touch and physical manipulation. Her parents are both practitioners in the field (osteopathy and Shiatsu), and she grew up experiencing the value of touch firsthand. Briana aims to encourage the body to heal itself and promote fertility by reducing stress through her work.
Briana is a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist and a DONA-trained doula. She is a Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences graduate and is certified in many massage dualities, including medical massage and craniosacral therapy. Her current focus is prenatal and perinatal massage techniques. Other areas of focus include chronic and acute pain management, menstrual pain, endometriosis, PCOS, scar tissue manipulation (C-section scars), diastasis recti, TMJ, migraines and headaches, and gastrointestinal issues.
As a guiding principle, Briana believes in a holistic approach to pain management and the birth experience. She incorporates various techniques in her work, including Swedish massage, Shiatsu, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, reflexology, polarity, Alexander technique, trigger point release, and more. She combines her expertise in massage therapy with a lifelong passion for children to provide optimal support and pain management before, during, and after birth.
