Traditional PTs look at one body part and make one diagnosis at a time. But that's not how the body works.

Stop slouching over that tiny screen. It’s bad for your self-esteem.

Slouching can have ill effects on body and state of mind. But with some solid effort, and sometimes exercises, muscular imbalances can be corrected.

Almost any amount and type of physical activity may slow aging deep within our cells, and middle age may be a critical time to get the process rolling.

"My aches and pains have been steadily diminishing since seeing Shmuel Tatz, PT, PhD for the first time but they hadn’t vanished completely – yet. Only because it’s been a long and winding road of minor injuries over the decades. This being my tenth visit, I didn’t know what to expect since there are a variety of problem areas in my small frame. Tatz, usually a man of little words, surprised me when he sat down and spoke at length before my treatment began. He was insistent that I understand, “People don’t always want to hear what their real problem is.” I was a little worried he had something unpleasant to tell me about my own health, but I listened."

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.

Exceptional physical therapist who addresses the problem and not just the symptoms. Fabulous results with every problem he had worked on, whether long term back pain or short term wrist/ankle injury. Every time I feel pain and in need of help, I skip the doctor and come see Dr. Tatz instead.

I had disc hernia related pain and my back got "stuck" about a year ago. Haven't had the problem since I saw Dr. Tatz last year and I just thought I should write a review since I'm so thankful I found him. No other treatment has helped me as much as body tuning and I'm normally not a person who prefers alternative medicinal approach.

Dr. Shmuel Tatz is, without a doubt, the best this business has to offer. We, in the performing arts, should be thankful to have someone who is so ‘in tune’ with the human body. In a very taxing musical profession, injuries are easy to come by but difficult to get rid of, and as someone that was dealing with back, neck and arm problems (along with denial…) over the last year it was a real blessing to meet and work with Dr. Tatz. He knows precisely where your problems are and where they stem from, and is able to help your body heal along with teaching you little exercises to help prevent any further injuries. I want to thank him and his wonderful staff for helping me get back on track so that I may continue to enjoy my career with the violin. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Shmuel Tatz to all my friends and colleagues.

I found Dr. Tazt(PhD) through his website, Body Tuning. I was interested because he incorporates many healing modalities into his physical therapy practice. He has both a scientific and energetic understanding of the body. The tendonitis pain in my knee, which I had for 4 months, greatly diminished after two sessions. Of course, the tendonitis had a deeper root, so now therapy has begun in these areas to remedy the source of the condition. Dr. Tatz is called the “body whisperer” and rightly so. Without telling him, he discovers other areas that need working on--neck, shoulders, head, and uses appropriate treatment there. Just as important to me, Dr. Tazt is well skilled in energetic healing modalities, which he uses to enhance healing and overall wellbeing. The beautiful music playing throughout the session adds another element of healing. As a registered nurse and an integrative health practitioner, I am very pleased to be working with Dr. Tazt and will recommend him to all my contacts. He is a healer for the whole person.

Dr. Shmuel Tatz is an extraordinary physical therapist. I came to him with multiple back, hip, sciatica, and other problems, which significantly restricted my movement and made it very difficult to walk and sit. Prior to finding Dr. Tatz, I did physical therapy elsewhere but without much improvement. After only 10 sessions (and I still have more sessions to go) I am remarkably better. I can already take short walks and even go on a subway. Although I still have some pain, its severity has greatly decreased. Furthermore, through Dr. Tatz’s work and the exercises he taught me, my body has become much more flexible. Dr. Tatz employs multiple healing modalities such as acupressure, chiropractic, osteopathy, magnetic field, electrical vibration etc. He can intuitively feel and heal the patient’s issues energetically as well. His dedication and commitment to healing the patient is remarkable. I feel extremely fortunate to have found him and only wish that it happened sooner. Dr. Anna Melamed

I found a groupon for this place and the idea of "body tuning" like a musical instrument sounded alluring to me. I checked Dr. Tatz's website and hearing the story of a dancer who was healed completely after an injury sounded amazing. Although I'm not a dancer but that kind of healing sounded intriguing. So I bought the groupon for two sessions. I booked one immediately. Its in a nice building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Nice interior, kept up and clean. Interestingly music was blasting out of the wall mount speakers everywhere. It was unusually loud but at least it was opera which is my favorite. The receptionist said that Dr. Tatz likes to concentrate on his work while listening to the music. My appointment was at 11:30 am. Dr. Tatz came a little after 11:35 and I went to the room with him. Since it was my first time I thought there will be a discussion/consultation regarding my condition but he immediately asked me to lay on his table. he is an older gentleman with very heavy accent which was a little challenging for me to understand sometimes. He is eccentric but nice and pleasant. He spent about 10 minutes in the room with me, asking questions and working on my body and making some recommendations. Then his assistant-in-training came and she spend another 10 minutes with me by herself. She was very nice and courteous as well. the body work was similar to regular massage except I was fully cloths. Then Dr. Tatz came back to the room, put an electrical pulsating device (the likes of what chiropractor use) on my lower back as it has been a problem area for me and left the room. After 10 minutes its started to get hot on my skin and a shooting pain went down my leg. It was very uncomfortable, I was alone in the room and the music was blasting! I didn't know exactly what's on my back as I was face down on the bed and could not see. I did't want to just rip it off so I started to call for Dr. Tatz. The music was so loud they could not hear me. It took couple of minutes and me screaming "Doctor", "hello", "anybody"... for him to come to the room and take the device off my back. All he said was that you have another appointment right? You are done for today!!! At this point I was in a state of panic. I came out and just told the receptionist that this was not ok to leave me in the room like that and the whole thing was only 35 minutes. She was very sweet, apologized and promised that this will be addressed. Later that day when i got home I had a voice mail stating that since your appointment was so short, Dr. Tatz will add "5 minutes" to your next appointment, that's it and nothing else was addressed. I found the whole experience extremely uncomfortable, unsafe and scary. The extreme lack of care was disgusting to me. He is running a therapy mill! He spent only 10 minutes with me during which constantly check the next room where her assistant in-training was working on someone else and then he disappeared completely after that! This was a very comprehensive and super honest description of my experience, use your own judgment!

Dr. Tatz is fantastic!! He definitely has a healer's touch. After one visit I feel so much better it's amazing. Pain that I have been suffering for over three years is nearly gone. He is a body-whisperer. I will be back!

Before I found Dr. Tatz, I had broken the ring finger in the joint inside of my left hand (in a stupid, unlucky fall), and wondered if I'd ever play my instrument the same way again. 8 weeks after the break, I still couldn't make a fist, and I was concerned that all of the hours in my life that I've put into practice with a metronome would be gone. Now, after a healthy number of sessions with Dr. Tatz, I can say without doubt that I will play at a professional level again. I've had physical therapy before for other injuries, but have experienced nothing like this incredible level of applied knowledge and efficient treatment. I simply didn't know that individualized, fully hands-on physical therapy like this was possible, until I began this process. The technical skill displayed by Dr. Tatz in physically manipulating and guiding my recovering hand back into proper, healthy form has been incredible to witness. The difference in dexterity, range of motion and comfort between when I arrived in the office a few weeks ago, and now as I am playing again is extraordinary. I'd say that his therapy approaches the miraculous, but that wouldn't do justice to the real-world expertise involved in getting my hand's complex, atrophied, damaged tissues to cooperate with each other again. The advice that I'd give to any other concert-level musician with an injury like mine is this: get up to Columbus Circle to see Dr. Tatz as soon as possible, and get back on the path to recovering full capability with your instrument and your life.
