Glenn Genovas, B.S., A.T.C., L.M.T
Glenn graduated with a B.S. Athletic Training/Sports Medicine from East Stroudsburg University (ESU) in 1997. In his course of study, he built a strong base of experience working with high school and collegiate sport teams in baseball, volleyball, lacrosse, football, soccer, and cross country.
For nearly a decade, Glenn worked in established physical therapy facilities in NYC. He was also an athletic trainer for the Borough of Manhattan Community College. Seeing the importance of manual therapy in the recovery of his patients, and the limitations in care that could be provided in rehabilitative settings, Glenn sought to develop his work so that he could provide more of the hands-on care that he saw as essential to healing. He graduated from The Swedish Institute in 2000 and opened a private practice in Union Square, NYC in 2004.
Understanding the dynamic nature of human body, Glenn continues to deepen his knowledge and skill with further study of other systems of bodywork and healing.
Glenn is an Advanced Practitioner in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release, and a Certified CORE Institute Massage Therapist. He continues study in manual therapy through Cross Country University. He has completed the Zheng Gu Tui Na program, a form of orthopedic bodywork based on Chinese medicine principles. Glenn continues to refine his skill in this work in ongoing seminars with Tom Bisio and Frank Butler, its founders.
Combining his background in sports medicine with eastern and western bodywork techniques, Glenn’s work focuses on people who have muscular and fascial restrictions due to trauma, repetitive stress or poor posture. His work is effective for those whose bodies feel tight and limited in function and/or motion. Post-surgery clients who require “hands-on” treatments throughout their rehabilitation, and people who have gone through the typical physical therapy routine with little to no results can improve their recovery outcomes with Glenn's unique integrated bodywork approach.
