The application of hot towels transfers heat quickly and effectively to the skin and underlying superficial tissues, allowing muscles to relax and toxins to be released more efficiently.
Cupping therapy is a form of traditional Chinese medicine in which cups are placed on the skin (of the back and neck) to create suction. The suction loosens muscles, encourages circulation, and boosts immune system function. Note: Exposing the treated area to direct sunlight is not recommended for 5-7 days following this treatment.
Aromatherapy is the application of essential oils to the skin. Aromatherapy is used to increase relaxation, ease depression/balance hormones, boost energy levels, accelerate the healing process, eliminate headaches, induce restful sleep, boost the immune system, reduce pain, and increase circulation.

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 Professionalsand 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.
