HSS Rehabilitation Network

We recommend finding a PT within walking distance of home or work so that you can more easily commit to the 1-3 visits per week that most PTs will recommend to work on an issue. This is our favorite resource for finding great PTs that easily shows on the map what's near to work or home. While we haven't used all of these, many of our clients have and we've always gotten great feedback about the PTs they've worked with. HSS vets each of the practices here!

Other Useful Links

Aikido of Park Slope
630 Sackett St 
Brooklyn, NY 11217

(718) 788-5932

Aikido of Park Slope is another of David's alma matters, in the sense that he's been practicing Aikido there under the amazing guidance of sensei Hal Lehrman since 1996! Hal's dojo is a wonderful place of fun, learning, growth, and badassery. While steeped in tradition, it's open and friendly, inviting, and not stuffy like a lot of martial arts dojos. Hal's teaching broadens out from the physical art of aikido to the overall philosophy embodied in the art of finding peace, harmony, and community even with our "attackers." The amount of influence that aikido has had on David's massage style cannot be understated 🙂 This is where David got his black belt in both Aikido and in life.
