NK BODY PHILOSOPHY (formerly Zen Touch Massage) was established in 2007 by New York State licensed massage therapist and certified personal trainer, Nicole Kung.
Located in Midtown and Downtown Manhattan, NK BODY PHILOSOPHY skillfully treats a wide range of clients by applying the philosophy of a clinical whole body approach using a combination of rehabilitative, soft tissue techniques, strength, stability, core, balance, weight management, neuromuscular re-education, postural, movement, gait, breath work, and resistance training.
Upon graduating from the Swedish Institute in 2007 well trained in all spa modalities, Nicole gained hands-on training at high end spas around NYC. She began her independent practice soon after, applying traditional spa-centric relaxation techniques—for individual client’s homes, high-end hotels, spas, and celebrities—on location. This provided a high end service that was convenient and delivered throughout the five boroughs.
Over time, Nicole’s clients inspired her to move toward a comprehensive, medically-based practice that combined a clinical approach with relaxation and healing therapies. In 2008, she received extensive training and became certified to practice Myofascial release. To increase the efficacy of her myofascial work, Nicole believes strongly in the need for strength training, corrective exercises, movement training, and postural rehabilitation. To bolster this ideology, she also became a certified personal trainer in 2014. After switching her practice to offer only medically based treatment along with strength training she fulfilled that vision with the creation of NK BODY PHILOSOPHY.
NK BODY PHILOSOPHY welcomes patients with mild to severe issues relating to mobility, flexibility, strengthening, acute injury, weight management, core stability, injury prevention, medical diagnosis, ergonomics, postural alignment, and chronic pain management. Since evolving to a therapeutic practice, the type of services have changed to offer an effective list of massage treatments that can provide longer lasting benefits, work in line with your health goals and/or healthcare providers, and overall a much more therapeutic and result-oriented experience! Along with this approach, personal training has been added to complete the whole body philosophy of NK BODY PHILOSOPHY.
