Allen Heinlein opened Back In Touch Massage Therapy in 2001, focusing on the idea that massage should not be a once-a-year luxury, but an integral part of wellness for everyone. He envisioned a "neighborhood massage studio," low-key and friendly, and dedicated to giving great massages at affordable prices.
He began his massage training in California, at the Massage School of Santa Monica; when he returned to New York, he continued his education at the Swedish Institute, becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1991 and has also received National Certification status from the NCBTMB. He has continued his massage training in classes such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, anma and reiki.
Allen's continuing enthusiasm about massage springs from seeing truly transformational results in his clients, and he enjoys teaching them about how the body works almost as much as he enjoys performing massage. Come in for a massage from Allen and you just might feel better than you have in years!
