Jessica Lippo desired to be a licensed massage therapist so that she could help people identify with what they are suffering from physically and ultimately help them to heal. In 2010 Jessica had to pause her career to be a caretaker for her Mom who suffered a traumatic brain injury and had a massive stroke. During that period, she witnessed how quickly the services for physical and occupational therapy were cut off. She was able to use her talents to prevent her Mom's muscles from atrophying and allow her body to have increased fluidity. Her style of massage is one of great relaxation, serenity and has a passion for Reflexology. She believes strongly that it is a targeted pressure-point massage that restores the flow of energy throughout the body . One patient said, "she forgets where she is when Jessica massages her because she loses track of time and space because she is so relaxed." In today’s crazy world of chaos, errands, endless activities with kids and work take time to care for yourself and bless yourself with 1 hour of peace and tranquility. Your body and mind will thank you. Jessica graduated from NY College of Health Professions in 2006 with an Associates Degree in Massage Therapy.

Diana Maslauskas is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Hypnotherapist and Facilitator of Intuitive Healing. Diana started practicing Massage Therapy in 2000. She spent several years practicing as a Massage Therapist before she learned that she could also help heal her clients on an energetic level. As a young child she had suffered from many physical ailments. After seeing the difference holistic healing modalities made in her life, she enrolled in the massage therapy program at The New York College, in Syosset, NY. She began a daily regiment of natural alternatives. Along her journey, Diana realized how much her emotions played a roll in her own healing. As she let go of her negative thoughts, and the constant expectation of pain, her physical pains started to subside. It was then that she was introduced to the mind/body connection. Over the years Diana began incorporating different forms of energy work into her practice. Additionally, after completing her Hypnotherapy Certification & QHHT Certification, she now utilizes Hypnosis, Regression, Tibetan Singing Bowls & her Intuitive energy work as her primary focus in helping people learn how to heal themselves.
At the Center Diana also facilitates Meditation Mondays and leads a support group for Parents of Neurodiverse children, including those with ADHD & ODD. Please visit our EVENTS page for monthly updated groups.

Linda Alba is someone who deeply understands the intricacies of energy and of transmutation. She can feel your symptoms physically, immediately tuning into the areas where you need the most attention. This leads to release and to realizations, the type of realizations that bring you to a space of acknowledgement and massive shifts in your life. During her sessions, she designs a space for you: a soft bubble where you hover in the middle ground between the conscious and subconscious. In this space, you soften and melt, gaining the ability to fully access the inner layers of your being for profound metamorphosis. She then seals in the energy with Reiki, infusing you with positivity and light. Her ultimate goal is to bring you to a place of perfect comfort and ease in your skin, where you can finally see yourself for who you truly are: worthy, loved, and significant beyond measure. With this foundation, clients move forward in their lives with new confidence and a deep understanding of their true value.
