"[FlySpace] has had a huge impact on my well-being. I have been training with [them] twice a week for several years, after negative experiences with other trainers whose programs exacerbated my joint issues. [Their] thoughtful, strategic approach was to address my issues over time, while building strength and mobility. Now my knees and hips are in great shape, and I'm stronger than ever. On top of that, Marissa is a delightful person to spend time with!"

"Marissa is great! As a professional ballet dancer returning from surgery she has helped me with both the manual and exercise aspects. I'd definitely recommend Marissa to anyone needing a good PT on New York!"
"I came to [FlySpace] after a lot of frustration regarding my lower left leg which is a huge problem as I make my living as a dancer. [They were] kind, knowledgeable, patient and most importantly [they] listened to me. I felt instant relief after my first session knowing I was in the right hands."

"From day 1, Marissa showed a keen eye with attention to every detail. Through our time together in my rehabilitation, she has been a continued source of encouragement and has a vault of exercises that will not only keep you stimulated, but challenge you for the best. She's a gold star therapist that should not be missed."
– Glenn Allen Sims
"Having worked with Marissa as trainer and physical therapist, results is the best word to describe my experience. She is effective, thoughtful and dedicated! Can't recommend her more highly!"
"Excellent in communicating, detailed in analysis and describing appropriate exercises targeted to my issues."
"Marissa has such an incredible ability to diagnose and treat the problem. [She] does so with a vast knowledge of the body, an ability to adapt to the unique body in front of her, and care and patience."
– Alex Gould
"In a short amount of time, I already feel better. I went from feeling like an old lady to being excited to work out. [Their] expertise and winning personality are good for the body and soul."
– Lynn F.
"After just one week of working with Marissa and working on the exercises she gave me, I noticed my body feeling better and moving a stronger, more efficient way! She is super professional but also keeps the sessions fun. I've never been a fan of physical therapy or cross training but with Marissa, it doesn't feel like tedious tiring exercises that I dread doing. I look forward to the work she gives me and feel much better afterwards."
"I had just about had enough and lost all faith in physical therapy when I found Dr. Schaeffer. After going to 4 different physical therapists, all recommended by my doctors in NY, I had pretty much-lost hope that I would get the care I needed to recover from surgery and other injuries that had been bothering me for years. After my first session with Marissa, I knew this experience would be different. She has helped me to recovery significantly and I actually look forward to my sessions!"
– Aria M.
"I have had three visits with Marissa so far and each time she has truly listened, examined, and thoughtfully provided care. She approaches the issue from multiple angles and checks for effects rather than blindly moving forward. It's been extremely easy to communicate with her as well! If you are a dancer she has all that additional knowledge too (she speaks our language)."
– Leigh Schanfein
"Marissa analyzed my dance movements and my symptoms. She designed a program to strengthen my core. She also recommended sitting on an exercise ball instead of a hard office chair. The combined program has reduced by lower back pain, buttock muscle spasm and leg muscle spasms. I highly recommend her. She is very focused and knowledgeable. She was very patient and thorough in her explanations of what she thoughts was creating my pain."
