“Margie is not only a technically skilled therapist, but she also has a unique intuitive ability to home in on trouble spots, release trigger points, and leave you feeling human again!”
Jeff R. – Columbia, MD

Margie’s Style
A licensed massage therapist since 2007, Margie is fluent in all major massage techniques, and combines them into an integrated session to meet her clients’ needs. She is also a Registered Craniosacral Therapist, which allows her to offer Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, that often results in profound changes to improve the body’s ability to heal and balance. Whether rehabbing an injury, addressing systemic fatigue and stress, or seeking to improve performance, Margie’s clients enjoy her unique blend of active listening and intuitive touch, which provides them with a restorative massage experience.

“I believe less is more when it comes to facilitating the body’s own healing capacity,” explains Margie. “Many people believe massage has to hurt to be good. On the contrary, applying pressure so deep that it hurts violates the body’s own boundary of what’s safe, causes the muscle to push back and ultimately inhibits the therapeutic effect. I prefer to let the muscle invite me in rather than kicking down the door. It achieves the same relief, but without the trauma.”

As a former team member and trainer at an integrative health & vitality center, she has deepened her knowledge of how massage fits into an integrative model for achieving wellness goals. This clinical experience enables her to apply massage and biodynamic craniosacral therapy to conditions such as adrenal fatigue, chronic stress, digestive issues and hormone imbalances. It also enables her to design a holistic wellness plan, that may include complimentary modalities to accelerate her clients’ progress.

Whether your goal is pain relief, stress reduction, functional fitness, or deep relaxation, Margie’s focus is to ensure you come out of the session feeling that your needs were met.

Credentials & Affiliations
Margie trained at the prestigious Potomac Massage Training Institute, a national leader in massage therapy education and research. Her education stressed clinical proficiency, science-based solutions and a deep understanding of massage as a tool to achieve balance in mind, body and spirit.

A continuous learner, her studies have included Trager Movement Re-education, Active Isolated Stretching, Geriatric massage, and Usui Reiki. She has also completed a two-year intensive training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. This subtle, non-invasive therapy works with the nervous system to gently activate the body’s innate ability to heal.

Margie has been licensed by the State of Maryland since 2007, and is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association, and the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America. She has been a Usui Reiki Master Practitioner since 2002.

“Beyond my credentials,” comments Margie, “what I’d like clients to know is that I am first and foremost a facilitator; my role is to help you reconnect with your body’s own innate capacity for healing; to help you achieve balance as you move through gravity and grace as you move through life!”

How Do You Want To Work Together?

Every session is customized to your needs, integrating the most appropriate modalities for your goals.  To help me optimize your experience, please choose one of the following when you schedule:

Body/Mind/Spirit Reconnection:  $90/hr – $120/90 min
Using Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, we will tap into your body’s Inherent Healing Plan, to unravel the effects of unprocessed life experience. Working together we will bring your system back into balance so you can function as you were meant to be in the world. Body, mind and spirit benefit as we remove the barriers to optimal health. (Note: in a 90-minute session it is possible to combine both massage and BCST for a deeper experience of relaxation and healing.)

Restorative Massage:  $90/hr – $120/90 min
The goal of this session is to facilitate coming back to balance – calm your mind, relax your body, awaken your spirit.  This is a whole-body, gentle flowing massage that leaves you feeling back home in your body.

Rehabilitative Massage:  $90/hr – $120/90 min
Rehab massage integrates various therapeutic modalities, such as deep tissue and myofascial release to help loosen adhesions, reduce chronic pain, and even re-educate dysfunctional muscle habit patterns. Unlike a full body massage, we will concentrate most of our time on one or two specific areas of dysfunction to reduce pain, restore function and achieve greater freedom of motion.

Biodynamic Pregnancy Massage:  $90/hr – $120/90 min
Using BCST, combined with traditional massage, we will help you and your baby meet the unique challenges of the child-bearing year. In this session we address the obvious physical strains on mom’s body. We also fold in BCST to calm the nervous systems of both mother and child, encouraging emotional bonding which can otherwise be short-circuited due to pre-natal and birth stress.  (Note: it is recommended the first experience be a 90-minute session to allow adequate time for a conversation on the unique features of your pregnancy and establish on-going goals to support you and your baby’s pre-natal experience.)

Biodynamic Craniosacral Sampler:   $30/30 min
Curious about BCST but don’t want to schedule a full session?  Why not sample it during your next massage; add on 30 minutes of restorative biodynamic craniosacral therapy to any regular session.

Reiki Energy Reset:   $90/60 min
While traditional massage focuses on muscle and soft tissue, Reiki works with your body’s energy circulatory system.  We start by scanning your body’s energy centers for sluggish, blocked or depleted energy.  We then channel life force energy into those areas to help you re-energize. Finally we balance your energy flow to achieve a sense of greater continuity in body, mind and spirit.  This is a great low-impact choice if you’re feeling scattered and stressed.

Reiki Sampler:   $15/15 min
Curious about Reiki but don’t want to schedule a full session?  Why not sample it during your next massage; add on 15 minutes of Reiki to any regular session.
