Shannon trained in massage therapy in 2003 at the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge and, 15 years later, at Spatech Institute in Ipswich. She has completed additional coursework in the pathology and treatment of the head and neck, cranio-sacral  therapy and cupping. 

In between her massage trainings, Shannon trained as a Reflexologist, completing a 300+ hour professional certification program in Reflexology from The New England Institute of Reflexology and Universal Studies. She has specialized training in Oncology and Reflexology, and Reflexology for PTSD.

Shannon designs each massage and reflexology session based on the therapeutic needs, goals and preferences of her clients.

For clients seeking problem-specific massage, Shannon utilizes a variety of techniques (myofacial, trigger point, strain/counter-strain and stretching, among others) to address patterns of pain and tissue restriction that interfere with activities of daily life and performance.

For clients seeking relaxation massage, Shannon's approach is fluid and deeply nurturing using broad, long, connecting strokes.

She is passionate about bringing reflexology and massage to special populations and organizations having presented to medical professionals at UMass-Worcester and volunteering in support of Lucy's Love Bus, PinkHippy.org, Project New Hope, and There and Back Again, among others.

She is a professional member in good standing with the American Massage Therapy Association and served as President of the Massachusetts Association of Reflexology 2015-2019.


Shannon lives in Amesbury with her spouse and 2 middle schoolers.

She took a lot of time with my intake, more than any other massage therapist I've been to.

Everything was amazing! She brought me back to life with her Massage. I have been to different places: New York, Georgetown, and Nashville for a family visit and I got a massage at each of these cities. None of these massages were as good as the massage I got from Shannon. Every time I come back to Boston from Europe I will go to get a massage at Amesbury with Shannon!

Shannon is amazing- I left feeling like I was in a new body! She really takes the time before and after your appointment to teach you about your problem areas and how to better them. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you!!

Shannon is a gem! I really appreciated her efforts to create a comfortable and effective session. The massage itself helped so much I felt I was standing straighter and all the tension in my shoulders had melted away. She went above and beyond by assessing my needs as a new client with a conversation beforehand, and followed up with some tips to help me stretch and increase mobility in my problem areas. I look forward to incorporating regular visits into my routine to improve my health.

Shannon was awesome. Her prep work put me in the perfect and most comfortable positions and her massage style was both strong and intuitive.

Nothing! Shannon was amazing. Felt great after and recommended my wife to get a massage with Shannon. Best massage I’ve had in a very long time and definitely the best I’ve felt after in a while.

Shannon was amazing; she was compassionate and was very informative. She gave me one of the best foot massages that I have ever had. I have had many, many foot massages during the last 5 years of dealing with Plantar Faciitis, so I have a lot of experiences which to compare!
