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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Leslie on Aug 30
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!
