Hello, and welcome to my website. I have had the good fortune to practice massage therapy in the Pioneer Valley for more than 25 years. My specialty is pain relief through postural and biomechanical assessment and the application of targeted manual therapy techniques. I use several modalities, but the goal is the same: to help you feel better in your body.
My work is thorough and focused on uncovering the underlying causes of your pain in order to create lasting change. Your first session will include:
- A detailed health history
- Postural assessment
- Evaluation for biomechanical dysfunction
- Discussion of treatment goals and agreement on the focus of your session
- One hour of bodywork
- Suggested stretches and/or movement exercises to support the work that happens on the table
At each appointment, I will chart your postural position so that changes can be tracked and then used as a guide for that day’s therapy. My intention is to approach every session with curiosity, kindness, and humor.
My dog Wilson helps out at the office on a semi-regular basis. Please let me know if you are allergic to dogs.
"Mimi is able to focus at once on short term discomfort and long-term improvement. I really appreciate her ability to see the forest for the trees – to zero in on the acute issues at hand while working toward overall postural health. Her willingness to explain the what's and why's of my body is hugely helpful and empowering, as well." – Jennifer G.
