Kiva Block Sprissler is a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist. She graduated from the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in 2005 in Albany, NY, and went on to receive advanced training in Craniosacral Therapy from the Upledger Institute, Reconnective Healing, and various other medical massage techniques. Several years ago, she began practicing yoga as she found a self-care routine would be indispensable in such a physically demanding profession. She began to recommend her clients establish some sort of strengthening and stretching routine so often, that it seemed only logical to get certified as a yoga teacher. She completed a 200-hour comparative course of study with a focus on yoga therapy at Lotus Gardens Yoga School and is registered with Yoga Alliance.
After eight years in private practice at Samaritan Hospital in Troy, NY, she has moved to a beautiful new office with attached private yoga studio in St. Peter's Health Partners Massry Center. In addition to private clients, Kiva provides massage and yoga therapy to the patients of Samaritan Hospital's Cancer Treatment Center, with the support of their Integrative Wellness Program. Find more information on the program at http://www.nehealth.com/Medical_Care/Specialties/Cancer_Treatment. She has also taught craniosacral therapy at Mildred Elley and assistant taught at CNWSMT.
Outside of work, Kiva enjoys spending time in meditation and study, doing small metalsmithing projects, and good times with her family, friends, and pets.
