about new york orthopedic massage (NYOM)
NYOM was established in 2005 to promote a comprehensive style of bodywork that helps those in pain as well as corrects movement dysfunction before postural patterns lead to the chronic distortions that eventually become pain.

Kiambu Dickerson is a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). He is a graduate of the Swedish Institute where he received an Associates Degree in Occupational Studies. He has over 12 years of experience and has hundreds of hours of advanced certifications in orthopedic massage, Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques and The Hesch Method having studied directly with James Waslaski, Erik Dalton PhD, Jerry Hesch, David Weinstock and Tom Myers, Internationally recognized pain resolution and structural alignment experts.

Kiambu practices in Chelsea, New York and is committed to helping his clients understand and recover from their conditions, chronic pain, or injuries.

 
His bodywork is based on the idea that while we can focus on a hurt knee or a "bad" back, the key is identifying the source of problems vs the symptoms they produce. Hands-on work is aimed at releasing hypertonic muscles and resolving movement dysfunction (hypomobility) thereby creating functional movement and ending reflexogenic muscle inhibition and hyperfacilitation. By balancing muscles, dense articular connective tissue and fascia that place undue pressure on joints and reorganizing the tissues that distort posture and create chronic pain, he also establishes a new mind-body connection through neuromuscular facilitation and proprioception.

Kiambu is a teaching assistant for Erik Dalton, James Waslaski and David Weinstock. He also teaches seminars on various massage techniques. Contact him for availability.

Kiambu also works at the Everyday Athlete gym in Carroll Gardens (contact him for his schedule). The gym address is 136 Union Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231.
