Abbie - LMT, Reiki Level 1 Certified
Abbie's commitment to wellness, self-care, and self-improvement was established at a fairly young age. The road that led them to their current outlook on such things has been a winding one and heavily shaped by their efforts to understand their own place in the world and how best to function in it.
Abbie has sought direction in various disciplines – religion, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, exercise, and health-consciousness. While each of these things has played its own important role in their growth, massage therapy is the first of such disciplines that they've become truly rooted in. It is one of the few things that Abbie genuinely believes everybody can derive some benefit from.
As a therapist, Abbie takes great pride and pleasure in being a part of others' journeys of self-care and healing. They believe that each individual has their own unique way of being in the world. Through massage, Abbie wishes to connect with, encourage, and teach people who resonate with this thinking.
Tending to a varying blend of Swedish, Myofascial, and Trigger Point techniques, no two massages Abbie gives are the same, just as no two people are the same. Their number one goal for every session is to create space for a whole person just to be. People often find their work to be deeply relaxing and comforting.
Abbie graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy. As a part of the same program, they have been attuned in Level 1 Reiki. Abbie's continued learning trajectory includes deepening their understanding of Myofascial work and learning how best to incorporate energy work and intentionality into their practice.
Outside of massage therapy, Abbie spends as much time as possible with friends and loved ones. A collector of hobbies, but regularly enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons, cooking, and creating music.
Anna - Reiki Master Practitioner
Anna discovered Reiki while searching for a holistic alternative to deal with her chronic physical pain. She found that it helped heal so much more than the physical discomfort, reducing stress, allowing her to sleep, easing the emotional wounds. Reiki had begun to improve every part of her life, and her journey began. She hopes to help others in their own personal healing journey, know the peace of mind, spirit, and body. Anna attained the Third Degree Master Practitioner Level certification in the Usui System of Natural Healing at the Energy Connection Creative Healing & Learning Center School for Reiki.
Anna has had a lifetime of working with different segments of vulnerable populations through her various professional positions and volunteerism. She is compassionate and patient and considers Reiki as another more intimate and immediate way of helping. Her goal as a Reiki Master is to help everyone. Her personal goal is to help other people who may have experienced trauma.
In her free time, Anna loves to spend time with her family, play board games, and work with her hands-on projects around the house.
Helen - LCMT
Helen has grounded herself in the Healing Arts since her first experience in an American Indian Sweat Lodge in Laguna Beach, California in the 1990's. From this pure and gentle sacred healing ritual that takes you through doorways of letting go of fear and pain, Helen became inspired to pursue her vocation at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Laguna Hills, California.
Since 1998 she has continued to build on her skills in workshops and practicing on both the East and West Coast. She pulls skills as a healing artist from various modalities to understand how to flow in awareness with her clients to their enlightenment of what transforms them to heal. Helen believes in honoring each session by learning about the individual's place in life and by fine-tuning their treatment.
Helen is especially drawn to apply her skills in ancient traditional techniques from Thailand Mat Massage, which she's adapted in a table version, and Japanese Shiatsu, an acupressure form of meridian therapy. Helen's bodywork is a sensitive blending of Western and Eastern modalities that provides an intuitive understanding of an individual's energy. She supports teaching that health is a process of finding personal balance, clearing space, and finding what we can change. "Trust and Faith are key to our healing journeys, and Awareness and Enlightenment are their partners."
In her personal life, Helen practices daily prayer, is an ardent animal lover, and volunteer's her efforts to animal rights projects. She shares her time devotionally with her beloved toy chihuahua and her well-renowned Pittsburgh art teacher Mother. She has a background in classical piano and dance studies, is inspired by nature walks, hiking, philanthropic projects, art and music, and is a follower of the Pittsburgh Jazz scene.
