My name is Marti Ann, and I am a therapeutic and relaxation based massage therapist and never-ending student of body-mind-spirit optimization.
My gentle and intuitive approach allows the body's nervous system to slow down and reconnect with its "rest and recover" state, known as the "parasympathetic state". This is in contrast to being in the "fight or flight" mode many of us find ourselves caught in when we are experiencing chronic fatigue and stress. When we tap into our parasympathetic nervous system we can more quickly experience potent and profound therapeutic change within the body. Being in a state of balance in the body also helps us to balance our mind and emotions, reconnecting us with our purpose and allowing us to more fully serve our communities and the world.
Each massage I give is carefully adjusted to address each person's main areas of concern within the body. The main modality that I practice is Neuromuscular Release, but I am also trained in many others, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Acupressure, Prenatal Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Lomi Lomi.
I received my training at Arcata School of Massage, completing my 650 hour therapeutic massage program from July 2013 to April 2014. Since then I have worked through my private practice and as a private contractor to provide deeply relaxing and rejuvenating massages to my community. I provide mobile massage also within my Humboldt area, as far south as Eureka, as far North as Trinidad, and as far East as Blue Lake. If you have a cozy and quiet space in which you would like to receive bodywork, this is a great way to get some R&R from the comfort of your own home! (Higher rates apply)
May your path to healing be full of joy and ease. Namaste.
