SUNY Cortland Massage Therapy Program 

Hannah Polanko-Baker

Hannah graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Massage in 2016. Two years after blowing her knee out, a weekly connective tissue session on her hamstrings helped to aid and even shorten the long healing process. Since then, she couldn't stop thinking about what a miracle it was and finally found her self wanting to help other athletes with holistic medicine. Hannah believes massage can help aid in preventing injuries, or assist in healing injuries that have already occurred whether it¹s due to stress, overused muscles, or even post-surgery. She loves to work with athletes and do specific deep tissue work. Those techniques include Swedish massage, connective tissue therapy and trigger point therapy. As an athlete herself, she knows first hand the benefits of massage therapy and is able to bring her knowledge into every session to help her clients maximize their recovery.
