Meg really appreciates the diversity and uniqueness that every individual offers. It is her intention to help each client receive what they need from their massage, whether it be deep relaxation, stress relief, lessening of discomfort, or increased range of motion. She is also mindful of being very present with each person. Meg has found that the time spent receiving massage is often the only focused “my time” that a person takes for themselves. It becomes a very important part of their health care, on many levels. She understands the value of quiet time, a peaceful space, and self-care to balance the busyness of life. Meg lives with gentle, rescued house bunnies, she exercises in nature, studies metaphysics, helps bunnies and other animals, and loves to dance! Her lifestyle and positive attitude help to keep her fit, happy and in appreciation of life every day. The space where she practice massage is very important to Meg. It needs to feel like a sanctuary, a restful haven. Meg had been considering working exclusively from home, until the opportunity to work at Belisama Bodyworks came along. She is delighted to be joining the great team of therapists at Belisama. There is something really special here and Meg is so excited to be able to offer her work from this beautiful space.
