Massage Therapy

About Massage Therapy:

Swedish Massage: Swedish massage is the most widely practiced type of massage therapy. There are a variety of techniques used in Swedish massage including gliding, squeezing, rolling, kneading, and circular friction movements. Different layers of depth and speed are used.

Deep Tissue Massage: Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to reach the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.This helps to break up scar tissue and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.


Reflexology: Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet. It’s based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems.


Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the tissues. The pressure is very light.

Craniosacral Therapy: Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on treatment technique that encourages the body to heal itself. This therapy gently encourages the production and distribution of the cerebrospinal fluid. During a session the therapist will monitor the craniosacral rhythm. To achieve balance, the therapist may induce a still point to momentarily stop the rhythm, which allows the body to self regulate and encourage a more balanced flow. This is a very supportive treatment for addressing emotional trauma.


Esalen/Somatics Massage: Somatic massage therapy focuses on areas of pain or trauma and applies physical techniques for healing. The cells and muscle tissue can hold on to trauma and store it until it is released. The strokes are slow and connected, typically always having a ‘mothering hand’ in touch with the client’s body.  This session is very fluid.

Traditional Thai Massage (Lazy Man Yoga): This modality has been around for over 2,500 years and consists of stretching, compression and pressure points. The goal is to clear energy blockages. The therapist may use fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms and feet along the energy lines (Sen Lines). For this modality, no oil or lotion is used and the client stays fully clothed in loose-fitting clothes.

Cupping: A treatment that helps relieve muscle tightness and increases circulation. Cups will be used creating a suction that promotes blood flow and chi to the compressed area and helps increase the body’s own healing process. Note: Cupping marks may last a few days following the session.

It is common for sessions to be a blend of multiple modalities.

Your Session

Clients should arrive ten minutes early for their first session to fill out an intake form and consult with their therapist.  During this time, medical history, symptomatology and goals for the session will be reviewed. The client will undress to their comfort level and only the area being worked on during the massage will be undraped. Essential oils, hot towels and warm weighted pillows are options included for each session. Along with soft tissue work, the massage therapist may incorporate passive stretching, body rocking, energy work, and intentional breathing as needed by each client’s body. Hydration is critical after each massage.  Massage therapy is typically most effective with consistent sessions. The therapist will recommend a schedule of sessions that is most appropriate for each client’s needs and goals, as well as recommending any at-home stretches and self-care protocols as needed.

I searched high and low for a massage therapist that could help me with my migraines. Meg has a talent like no other. Her massage techniques are so incredibly healing.

I started seeing Meagan when I moved from Boston to Nashua. I was struggling with anxiety and looking for more natural ways to help relieve it. After my first appointment, I knew I had found the right place.

I recently had a 90 minute massage with Meagan and it was one of the best massages of my life.

Meagan’s touch is wonderful! Firm and direct when needed, always skillful and respectful, gentle and intuitive throughout.

I can’t thank Meagan enough for how she has given me such a new lease on my life!

I felt lighter, happier and free of restrictions. I can’t wait until our next session in 2 weeks!
