Forrest Lahens is an energetic and compassionate therapist who has been practicing the art of massage therapy for over 20 years. In this time, he has worked for various day spas, built a private practice and participated in corporate chair massage events throughout New York city. Forrest’s style of bodywork incorporates the ancient acupressure technique of shiatsu as well as the long and short strokes of Swedish massage. He has masterfully developed a full body massage that combines compression, light stretches and range of motion that targets all the joints of the body. His style offers integrative bodywork that promotes the physical and emotional well-being of his clients.
In June of 2020 an opportunity emerged for Forrest to plant and harvest medicinal herbs at Seed Song Farm in Kingston, NY. After spending a season in the Hudson Valley region Forrest has chosen quality of life rather than the hustle and bustle of NYC. Forrest believes in the vitality of good health and the balance of mind, body, and spirit. What is placed in the body orally, mentally, spiritually and visually reflects who you are. A sound regiment of a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, daily exercise, and monthly massages will keep your body at optimal performance.
“You have to experience it to believe the kindness & caring concern shown, not to mention mind-blowing teachings.”
“I went to the Dr. Nida and Robert Thurman rejuvenating retreat. What a life changing experience. I feel so much better after just a week. The food is amazing, the spa is too good to be true. I love this hidden gem in the Catskills. I probably shouldn’t review this place—too many people might find out about it…”
“Your facilities and location are outstanding for retreats, and the staff are incredibly courteous and helpful. Being in the mountains, wandering along the streams and paths and disconnecting from the business of our daily lives was wonderful. Thank you for creating such a welcoming and warm environment.”
