Elizabeth E, LMT
Elizabeth founded BodyOne Massage in 2009. After college, she spent 8 years working in the dot-com industry, but she knew her calling was in the wellness arena. She pursued her passion by attending massage school, and upon graduation, put her education to work in a busy Harvard Square spa, becoming the Northeast Massage Educator for the Aveda Corporation. Ultimately, Elizabeth fulfilled her dream of opening her own space in which she could focus on her true goals and beliefs about health and wellness, as well as be an advocate for taking good care of the “one body” everyone has been given. When she is not working, Elizabeth loves to spend time with family and friends, coaches + plays basketball & soccer and loves eating at all the fantastic local restaurants near her office!
“I love what I do. Using intuition and experience to uncover and unravel tension in the body is fascinating and totally satisfying. To me, the most important part of the massage involves the initial communication: asking the client what they need on that particular day, what they like/dislike, what has worked for them in the past, etc. I am a firm believer that we have been given one body, so why wouldn’t we take care of it as best we can?”
Elizabeth is not taking new clients at this time and is not listed on the scheduling website.
Kristina P, LMT
Kristina embodies the qualities of both physical and mental strength! Originally from Somerville, MA, Kristina has built her practice around educating clients to achieve greater health by coupling their sessions with stretching techniques, mindfulness, and wellness tips. When Kristina isn’t working, you’ll find her doing yoga and strength work, meditating, playing with her pups, and searching for nutritious ways to fuel up!
“Elizabeth often talks about intuition as a gift, and I am grateful for mine. The body is a fascinating puzzle of woven tension, emotion, overused and fatigued muscles all waiting to be deciphered on our massage table. Every day is a learning day. I spend my time reading about wellness, body/muscle rehabilitation, strength, and movement. I love taking massage courses and expanding my foundation of knowledge. We’ve been given one body, and I just like to make you more comfortable in yours!”
Shawn M, LMT
Originally from the south, Shawn is a graduate of the Atlanta School of Massage. Before her move to MA, she succeeded in her own private practice. In her free time, she likes to keep up with the news and breakthroughs in health and biological sciences, natural plant remedies, and dabbles in creating her own therapeutic concoctions. She enjoys helping others become the best functioning human beings they can be, through a fusion of intuition, stretching, joint mobilization and deep tissue techniques.
“I like to discover and unravel the twists that tie our bodies into spiraling zig-zags. I love to help bring the balance back to neutral from exaggerated stances, and watching grunting grimaces change to gleeful grins. I love my job, and the people I encounter. I enjoy learning, working, and helping. I may not have all the answers, but I will do my best to work with you and together find the most efficient solution. I cannot fix you, but I can help you realize how to be the best you can be... if you’re willing."
Sylvia T, LMT
Sylvia grew up in Winchester, MA. After college she moved to the Metro DC area and worked in the medical field for over 12 years. As she climbed the corporate ladder, she realized it was not the correct/true path for her. She followed her intuition and pursued her passion for healing modalities. She became a Master Medicinal Aromatherapist and Reiki Master, which lead her to the path of massage therapy. Sylvia attended the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics and Massage Therapy in Medford, MA. That is where she fell in love with massage and realized massage helps support healing of the mind, body and soul.
Sylvia believes in a holistic approach to health and wellness. She practices Swedish Massage, Reiki, Oncology Massage (active & remission), Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Prenatal Massage, Cupping Massage, and Myofascial Release Techniques. When Sylvia is not working, she loves to take holistic based classes, meditate, head to the mountains for a hike, and spend time with her cat, Morrie. You may see her strolling the paths around the Charles River and meditating by the water.
“I customize each massage according to the needs of each client. My focus is on the holistic approach with a healing touch. This allows for me to offer a unique, effective massage along with energetic/intuitive modalities. I have a relaxing, yet therapeutic, flow that follows the music in the room. I use a wide range of pressure from gentle touch to focused deep tissue pressure.”
Scott W, LMT
Originally from upstate New York, Scott is a 2015 graduate of the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage. He comes to us from a busy practice in Syracuse where he gained a steady client following by integrating his knowledge of myofascial release and deep tissue techniques of both Eastern and Western massage. Scott has worked alongside medical professionals and physical therapists to develop treatment plans for patients and veterans.
Scott's intuition, strength and knowledge of the human form and function make him a perfect asset to any client seeking therapeutic relief. While he is not afraid to get into the issues affecting his clients, he is skilled at finding the balance of pressure and relaxation.
"Scott is a confident therapist who has mastered his trade by studying anatomy and working with a diverse clientele. He is able to work deeply with rehab clients and those who seek deep work, but also able to pivot and provide a therapeutic massage. His ability to consult, assess and create a treatment plan make him a true professional."
