If you made it to this page, you’re probably an educated consumer looking for a quality massage therapist. Great!
I’ll start by telling you about me.
I graduated from college with a degree in Liberal Studies and the skills to do almost nothing (except manage the Taco Bell on campus). I landed in a retail pharmacy setting and stayed there for 7 years, learning about people, medicine and health care in general. I also learned that: 1. wellness care is way better than illness care and 2. I didn’t want to help people under the constraints of insurance. So off I went to Bancroft School of Massage Therapy for the best massage training you can get in New England.
Twelve years later I’ve got my own massage practice and my clients are a lively combination of desk jockeys, weekend warriors, and kids of all ages.
In late 2015 I expanded the office into a full collaborative wellness center with independent practitioners offering massage, acupuncture, yoga, craniosacral therapy and more. You can check out all the various practitioners, services and classes at the Counterpoise Therapeutics website here.
On top of my basic massage education, I’ve received advanced training in MotherMassage®, Active Isolated Stretching, and Muscle Release Technique™, as well as some other techniques that are useful in dealing with repetitive motion issues, disc problems, etc.
In fall of 2014 I took Oncology Massage Therapy: Caring for Clients with Cancer and have begun working with people in treatment and after treatment for cancer.
I’m a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and actively involved in various local and national networks for massage therapists.
So, that’s me. I’m a great massage therapist, but I may or may not be the best massage therapist for you. How do we determine that? Check out this post, and please feel free to call or email me anytime.
