About Me as a Massage Therapist
Fran trained In Cambridge, MA., at Massage Institute of New England. As a graduate from MINE in 1997, my foundation is in Swedish Massage, how ever it has been layered upon with a variety of Continuing Education Studies.
Most recently I studied with Dr. Benjamin at The Benjamin Institute for Advanced Studies, JamesWaslaski and Whitney Lowe. The training I received in Orthopedic Massage greatly aids to my understanding of injury to the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments and tendons) that are causing chronic pain and restricted movement in the body. These areas of pain can be the result of new/old injuries or years of under or over used muscles. Multiple treatments are necessary and the benefit to restore
pain free movement is so worth it!
I also enjoy using Heated Stones in my practice as I am certified in Sacred Stone Massage. This type of treatment combines traditional Swedish Massage and the use of Heated Sea Stones, both as extensions of my hands, as well as resting upon your body allowing the heat to deeply penetrate. The combination of moist heat with massage enhances circulation, allows deeper work and encourages deep relaxation to be achieved.
Stones are personally harvested and with their millions of years of accumulated energy ... as part of the living matrix, they will significantly aid in the relaxation of the body, mind and spirit.
It has been said that 'one pass with a heated stone is worth ten with a hand'.
Why don't you see for yourself.
Other studies enhance my work including Aromatherapy, Anatomy Trains with Tom Myers (viewing the body as WHOLE and intrinsically connected) and Cranial Sacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute.
Massage is not a luxury ...
in this fast paced, busy and stressful time ...
massage is a necessity!
It is my intention to have you leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and replenished
and with greater awareness of your body.
I look forward to working with you!
