Maury began his career in 1989 as an assistant in a unique physical therapy practice, East Physical Therapy, in Manhattan’s East Village. He was inspired by his work and the things he learned there to go to massage school in 1992. Maury graduated the Swedish Institute’s Massage Therapy Program in January 1993, and was licensed in New York State in April of the same year.
He later began work on his 4 – year Feldenkrais Method® Professional Training, and received FGNA Certification as a practitioner in 1998. He also studied myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and Dr. Bruno Chickely’s Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, while gaining valuable experience, practice, and training as he continued as a therapist and partner at East Physical Therapy.
Since he opened his practice, MaurLife Therapeutics LLC, he has been having the time of his life, helping others get more out of theirs.
