Speakers: Dr. John Chong and Dr. Shmuel Tatz
There are many alternative methods of pain relief...
"I want to express my sincere appreciation for the professional care given to me by Dr. Tatz and the friendly staff. After trying many physical therapists in New York City, I finally found someone who is dedicated to his patients. Dr. Tatz relieved almost 10 years of pain I've had in my shoulder, which made me almost unable to play the violin. Other therapists have temporarily relieved the pain, but he really cured it. In addition to the therapy, Dr. Tatz taught me many daily exercises to enhance my health with his insightful observation and tremendous experience. I heartily recommend Dr. Tatz."
"Shmuel Tatz’s sessions are ideal for a performing musician. His manual therapy provides immense relief to muscles that are sore or fatigued – the tension disappears, and one is left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. He has an intimate understanding of the body’s behavior under physical stress, and can thus give truly great advice on how to best approach practice and performance from a physical standpoint, as well as suggest many wonderful exercises for staying healthy. I am greatly indebted to Shmuel Tatz for my physical wellbeing."

To say that physical therapist Shmuel Tatz is good for what ails you is a gross understatement—just ask the throngs of musicians, dancers, and athletes he’s treated at his Carnegie Hall studio. "Professional musicians, dancers, and athletes don’t have time to go from doctor to doctor," says Tatz, who was educated in Lithuania, Germany, Russia, and Israel, and has lived in the US for 25 years. "They want to get better right now with minimum side effects."
Through a mix of yoga, osteopathy, acupuncture, and physical and reflex therapy, Tatz has kept clients like Mikhail Baryshnikov, Susan Jaffe, Peter Jennings, Lou Reed, Kathleen Turner, and members of the Soviet Olympic team in fine form. But an elitist he's not: The bulk of his patients are "average Joes" who come to him with everything from lower back pain to carpal tunnel syndrome to arthritis to migraines. He calls most of what he sees "happy injuries"—incurred from leisure activities (yoga, golf, running) that leave the bodies in need of a tune up—and prides himself on giving each client as much time as is needed to get the job done properly. We feel better already.
