"Though relaxing and improving the way the body and mind feels is a natural effect of massage therapy, Maria seeks to improve the mind, body and spirit's functionality, balance and performance as well. Whether it is stress manifesting itself physically, or physical pain and discomfort that is causing psychological or emotional disturbance, Maria will listen to the client, as well as their body and energy, to create a therapeutic treatment that best suits their needs. Maria's knowledge and skill in clinical technique, even when deep work is needed, is applied with a fluent, nurturing, and healing touch, providing a therapeutic and restorative treatment to achieve an overall feeling of wellness and can lead to profound positive results.
Maria is a graduate of Holistic Massage Training Institute in Baltimore, MD. She is nationally certified and is a registered massage practitioner in the state of Maryland. Maria has continued education and certifications in modalities such as medical cupping massage, pregnancy massage, manual lymph drainage, myofacial release, injury rehabilitation massage, PNI (psychoneuroimmunology), pre and post event sports massage, chakra balancing, reiki, hot stone massage and aromatherpy.
