Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I can give a darn good massage to just about anyone, but I most enjoy working with people who appreciate the integrative style. I like to work with the breath. I like to work deep, but I’ll get there slowly and layer by layer. Energy awareness and intuition play a big role in how I work with clients. Massage doesn’t have to hurt to be effective — that’s a myth that may satisfy your brain, but your body knows better. Honor your body. If you can’t breathe through someone’s strokes or deep pressure technique, it might be too much. Receiving and allowing is a skill, and it’s not easy for many of us to do. That’s OK. I wasn’t good at this at first, and still I open more with some therapists than with others. When you find a tharapist you trust and connect with it’s quite natural to really let go and open to deep healing. Explore and treat yourself to therapy that really works for you; not all massages are equal... What do I love about what I do? 1) My clients. Hands down. 2) Nurturing a sense of deep peace, breath awareness, relaxation and body/mind connection ... one client at a time. 3) Being present. 4) How great I feel when I’m “in the zone”. There’s a kind of zingy magic in the room and often my clients and I get catapulted to a higher, more enjoyable state of mind. Hard to explain, but massage — good massage! — really has the power to transform us in deep and lasting ways. 5) Having a career which mandates regular self care — à la — when I get to get a massage! It’s so good to receive and re connect with the gift we MTs are giving people.

My experience with Mary was amazing, she has a very calm and nurturing energy. She took the time to understand what I wanted from my visit, and she put all of herself into the massage. I felt sacred and re-energized. This woman has healing hands! :)

Mary is an intuitive, gifted massage therapist. She is also a patient and capable, enthusiastic teacher. My partner and I learned Infant Massage from her and our baby loves and benefits from it. As a family we're grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Mary. She really knows her stuff! My neck and shoulders have been especially blessed by the association.
Mary Geitner, LMT CEIM's reply
Neck and shoulders! Yay! So generous ... thank you Rebekah. I enjoyed being with your whole family. See you soon.

Mary's unique skill is bringing you not what you want, but what you need. Most massage therapists are hammers looking for nails when there are needy nails aplenty. Her job is to heal you, not scratch wear you itch. Get your mind right, get on her table, and let yourself receive.
Mary Geitner, LMT CEIM's reply
Ha! Amelia you're the best...now, people, I WILL scratch you where you itch if that's what you want, to be sure, but I do indeed look at big picture health alongside needy nails so integration, calming the nervous system, full body care is part of the deal ALWAYS. Occurring to me that our injuries are kind of like ski season in a resort town. They are what brings us to the appointment, but the beauty of the town in the other seasons is what makes people want to move there, or visit the massage table regularly. Does that make sense. Gonna leave it anyhow. Thank you for your generous feedback, Amelia!

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    First off: I try to book massages for myself at least two or three times a month; receiving massage keeps me in deeply in touch with the beautiful work we therapists offer, and receiving from different types of therapists keeps me attuned to new techniques and practices. Once or twice a month I also like to watch new or emergent bodywork & massage videos, or checknout online seminars from ABMP. I recently completed level one and two certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and I am in the final stages of completing my Certified Educator of Infant Massage training.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    We are all different, and trusting and liking your therapist is big in my book. Many of us have learned the same techniques and most of us are perfectly effective at what we do. How to pick? Well, once you know the work "works" for your body/needs, simply find someone you connect with! Interpersonal compatibility is so helpful. Find a good listener. Find someone who likes to learn and who will show up with that beautiful "beginner's mind" at each session so the work stays fresh, effective, curious and deeply beneficial. Find someone who cares about you in the way YOU care about yourself. If you feel that mind body and spirit are all connected, like I do, find a therapist who shares that belief. No matter what you do, I encourage you to find a therapist who delivers not just hands-on techniques, but genuine kindness and respect for you, your body and your health. When you do, WORLDS can open!

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    First sessions are typically a lot about learning. I'm a huge fan of regular massage. Magic happens when clients come back! Return visits are where the magic begins to unfold...where the conversations about health, goals, wellness, feeling amazing, etc. really grow and deepen.
