Meet Megan Spence, Sacred Massage Therapist
Megan was on the path to becoming a massage therapist long before she actually enrolled at the Swedish Institute. Ironically, Megan was one of those kids who didn’t really like to have her shoulders rubbed. In college, at a high point of stress, she developed a strain in the neck that wouldn’t budge that finally led her to seek relief in massage therapy. This was the first (but not the last) massage that would change her life. Less than 20 minutes in, she was sobbing uncontrollably. What was that about? Thus began her inquiry into the relationship between emotional and physical pain, the mind and the body, that would continue to be her greatest inspiration and area of expertise.
In addition to full body massage, Megan has performed shorter sessions concentrating on specific zones of the body, and clients have been amazed by the difference that just 10 minutes of focused, attentive bodywork can make. The body makes a record of your emotions and experiences, and releasing even a small area can yield a big physical and emotional release. Imagine what an hour can do!
A Swedish Institute graduate and avid ongoing learner, Megan is trained in a variety of techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Hot Stone, Tui Na, Shiatsu, Pre and Post-Natal Massage, and massage to encourage and support labor. Whatever techniques she is using, her approach is always rooted in eastern medicine, which does not separate the mental, emotional and physical bodies.
Megan stands in awe of the profound changes that massage can bring. Come in stressed, frazzled, exhausted, hurting, or drained; leave relaxed and rejuvenated. Megan is committed to providing a safe, comfortable, and soothing environment that will put everyone from the massage newbie to the aficionado at ease.
The practice of massage has taught her the invaluable lesson that you – yes you – have the ability to heal if you make the space in your body, in your life, right now.
Meet Lindsay Fauntleroy, Sacred Acupuncturist
I first fell in love with acupuncture about 10 years ago, when I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure. After being told by doctor after doctor that I would never be able to conceive a child on my own, I decided to try a holistic route. Supported by a community of healers, my life was transformed and I was able to painlessly give birth to a vibrant daughter who is now proudly entering first grade.
My personal journey into mental, physical and emotional healing allowed me to see the interconnection between my mind and body, and the direct impact emotions and stress have on my physical health. I also learned that the painful, stuck places in our bodies and in our lives often hold the keys to unlocking our greatest potential.
Everyone’s body is unique, and responds to acupuncture differently. My approach integrates acupuncture with flower essences, essential oils, meditation, and personal reflection to help you tap into your inner wisdom and your body’s knowing.. I am trained in 5 styles of acupuncture that range from the very physical- such as myofascial trigger point release- to those that draw on the indigenous and shamanic lineage of acupuncture that aims to align the spirit and body. Every treatment is truly based on your unique needs and goals, and your body’s wisdom.
I am overjoyed to bring this sacred medicine to this Sacred space.
Incorporating hands on techniques Bodywork at Sacred incorporates various modalities of healing to provide a place of energetic and holistic wellness for your body. We encourage you to take advantage of our introductory rate to know in your body what these treatments are all about. In the meantime, just to give your mind something to do, here our some descriptions of the techniques our therapists employ:
Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage. Shiatsu involves applying pressure to special points or areas on the body in order to maintain physical and mental well being, treat disease, or alleviate discomfort. This therapy is considered holistic because it attempts to treat the whole person instead of a specific medical complaint. All types of acupressure generally focus on the same pressure points and so-called energy pathways, but may differ in terms of massage technique. Shiatsu, which can be translated as finger pressure, has been described as needle-free acupuncture.
Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that utilizes the principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. In acupressure, the same points on the body are used as in acupuncture, but are stimulated with finger pressure instead of with the insertion of needles. Acupressure is used to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain.
Classical Western massage, generally performed in the direction of the heart, sometimes with active or passive movement of the joints. It is used especially for relaxation, relief of muscular tension, and improvement of circulation and range of motion.
Polarity therapy is a holistic, energy-based system that includes bodywork, diet, exercise, and lifestyle counseling for the purpose of restoring and maintaining proper energy flows throughout the body. The underlying concept of polarity therapy is that all energy within the human body is based in electromagnetic force and that disease results from improperly dissipated energy.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Acupuncture is a holistic, indigenous medicine that originated in China. The focus is on the interaction of all bodily systems to restore the health and well being of the whole person–body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncture has a 3,000 year history of proven success treating various diseases, from painful disorders like back pain and sciatica to stress, anxiety, depression and infertility. Acupuncture needles stimulate and unblock energy (Qi) along the body traveling in pathways, called meridians, using acupuncture points. Acupuncture is a complete holistic system, with its own diagnosis and treatments which work as an alternative or complementary medicine.
