About Us

Each patient is treated as a unique individual and, therefore, treatment is determined as such; the proper technique to use is the one that the patient needs. Therefore, Dr. Latona-Brzezinski has been trained in various techniques and correctly applies those skills. While a majority of the patients seen at NPMAW come in seeking treatment for back, neck and joint pain, we also specialize in pediatric and maternity wellness care, in addition to nutritional counseling.


We accept the following insurances: Independent Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Univera, Aetna, United Healthcare, Empire, Worker's Compensation and No-fault insurance claims.  If you don't see your insurance listed please contact us to check coverage. If you're paying out of pocket, we will find a payment plan that fits your budget. We want all our patients to receive the best treatment possible.

Alieha Sack

Licensed Massage Therapist


Alieha was introduced to the power of healing touch as a child when her mother used to massage her whenever she had growing pains or headaches. Although her mother didn’t practice massage professionally, she gave Alieha the roots to grow her own tree. Alieha attended the New York Institute of Massage in 2005 and is well versed in anatomy & physiology, neurology, extensive myology, kinesiology, and ethics to name a few. She has been trained in various modalities such as Swedish massage, sports massage, pregnancy massage, chair massage, energy techniques, deep tissue, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy.

Alieha specializes in massage that focuses on “structural integrity” – specifically deep tissue. She strongly believes in whole health and wellness in all areas of life. She prides herself on being able to evaluate the entire person and tailor a treatment plan directly for them. She encourages her patients to integrate massage, acupuncture, chiropractic services, yoga, and nutrition to achieve balance and harmony in their lives. Alieha is passionate about educating her clients whether it be about posture and stance for a strong back, or simple stretches to do at home. Alieha helps all different types of people. She’s treated a broad and diverse population of patients over the years – from ages 2 to 100. She believes that massage can benefit anyone.

Alieha is passionate about helping others through her work and believes that “taking good care of YOU, means that the people in your life will receive the best of you, rather than what’s left of you.”
