David M. Lobenstine, LMT





I have been a massage therapist, teacher, and writer for over a decade.


I am a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist; certified in Pre- and Perinatal Massage; a Certified Infant Massage Therapist (CIMI); and a graduate of Vassar College and the Swedish Institute of Health Sciences.


I have worked in a variety of settings, from luxury spas to the US Open Tennis Tournament to a hospice to now, exclusively, my own private practice, Full Breath Massage. I work on everyone from Broadway performers to account managers, from new moms to grandmoms. I believe we can all benefit from therapeutic massage; I believe we can all breathe fully.


I have developed and taught continuing education courses around the country, from the Swedish Institute to the AMTA National Convention. I am also a researcher for Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy by Carole Osborne. I am currently in the process of creating streaming versions of my continuing education courses. My aim, both with my clients and in my teaching, is to enhance self-awareness, so that we can do the things we love with efficiency and ease.
