Introducing massage therapy to individuals has become a special trait of Maxie’s. The lifestyle of Maxie’s family has diversified her outlook on massage therapy and how she conducts her sessions. Maxie learned much from growning up in a family of nurses and teachers which led her into the massage therapy field. She views massage therapy as a dynamic field, “We are always learning to heal and practicing what we’ve learned is our balance in life.”

When Maxie entered the profession, it was easy to say her therapeutic touch came from an Eastern philosophy. Many of her clients experience internal healing, a remedy from a mixture of pressure points and connective tissue therapy. Establishing her name in the community, Maxie is giving massage as supplement within Psychiatry Doctor’s Offices and Woman Shelters. Connecting with Community Health centers in CNY, she introduces the benefits of massage and helps the charitable causes to raise money.

Maxie Alban found her way to Specialized Therapeutic Massage of CNY from her own need of therapy. Maxie having received and being educated about the benefits of Kinesio Taping and Myofascial Release, believes the access to other modalities would make her own practice whole. Maxie wishes to get her Doctrine in Reflexology, teach therapy to students and write her own book on Medicine.
