erika felicetta, LMT
After a decade of experience in massage therapy, earning her degree at the New York Institute of Massage, Erika decided to embark on the rewarding and demanding career of owning and running Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork studio. The studio first opened in the Elmwood Village, but they quickly grew out of their original location, thanks to the satisfied and dedicated clients that came back week after week. To accommodate all their loyal clients, Phoenix Rising has moved closer to downtown Buffalo, in the newly renovated 500 Seneca St building. Needless to say, this huge accomplishment is only one small facet of Erika's capabilities and talents.
A massage therapist for nearly a decade, she is a master of her trade. She listens to what her clients need, and can modify her services to make sure whatever her clients are in need of for that session. They leave satisfied- whether the goal was simple relaxation or working out a tough body part that is in need of some focused attention.
eric bamberg, LMT
After 25 years as a graphic designer/printer and a long history as an entrepreneur, Eric attended The New York Institute of Massage, a very science based school with a heavy focus on Myology and Neurology. His attention to detail and technical/mechanical abilities are all elements he brings to his life as an LMT.
Eric likes to break a client's physical situation down, find out what they want and need. Drawing from his past, he uses a freeform artistic approach to deliver the best of his skills, resulting in a multi-modality session, retaining the client for the future of their physical plan. What that means is that, possibly mid session he may change hats in order to get the client a better result. The body is always changing and so should the therapy.
"Let's not forget however that massage just feel great. Depending on tolerances, I can adjust from light to very heavy pressure at your request. Whether it be a bio-mechanical dysfunction or seeking a time for relaxation, either way, I believe that I can help you." -Eric
