"Why do many of the city’s top dancers and performers trust Howard Mermelstein for their massages?"

Howard Mermelstein is a healer. Performing eight shows in Hand to God should have left me with a lifetime of joint problems and pain. Instead thanks to working regularly with Howard, I'm stronger and fitter than I've ever been in my life. If you think you've tried everything and nothing can possibly help, it's not true. Howard helps.

Steven Boyer, Actor

Hand to God​ on Broadway

I am a professional dancer who consistently needs to take care of my body to stay working. I've been getting Howard's treatments for over ten years now. I have tried so many different kinds of treatments and Howard's work is the only thing that instantly helps and keeps my body at its best. His style of treatment has helped to prevent my body from injury, increase my flexibility and decrease any physical and emotional stress. I am so grateful for his work. Howard is truly a healer. 

Olivia Cipolla, Dancer/Singer/Songwriter

After suffering with chronic upper and lower back pain for years, I'm pain free on most days thanks to Howie's knowledge of muscle pathology and hard work. As a physician in private practice Internal Medicine, I was skeptical of what massage would be able to do for me, but now I am a believer. In every field there are practitioners with average competence and there are the pros; Howie is a pro.
