“Hilary Leitner is a master in acumassage, which means that she has expert training and a lot of experience in both acupuncture and massage. The combination means that she has a wealth of knowledge and an extraordinary range of skills in reaching for a balanced solution to the individual problem or need in front of her. I know of no one else who so quickly sees what needs to be done. She is also a careful listener as well as an accomplished interlocutor. She will hear what you have to say. If you want a quiet experience, she is for you; if instead you enjoy talking to the person working on you, as I do, she is a graceful and perceptive conversationalist always with a point about what she is doing. A session with Ms. Leitner is a mutual experience. She is cautious but imaginative and thorough in the treatments she offers. You will certainly come away in better shape, and if you come often, you may even emerge a better person. I should add that this therapist, when asked, has excellent advice on diet and exercise. I give Hilary Leitner my highest recommendation. You may do as well, but you cannot possibly do better.” -RF New York, NY
“I have known Hilary for over 19 years. I started seeing her for a weekly massage on the recommendation of my chiropractor, who also sees her. What began as an end-of-week relaxing ritual became an enduring friendship over the years. We have shared many of our life experiences and I have always found her to be a empathetic listener and supporter. As she began to practice acupuncture, I was one of her first clients and now she provides a combination of both practices for my appointment. Having gone through a knee and a hip replacement, I’ve found that Hilary’s ministrations have eased the pain, swelling and bruising of those operations and even the incision scars are barely noticeable. She even came to my home when I was recuperating. I appreciate how she is always inquiring about what your body needs and then finding the right application for that condition. I look forward to each appointment because I know my body and mind will be eased and I will leave relaxed and renewed.” -Cathy W, Brooklyn
