Pain Relief and Pelvic Wellness Specialist

How I became a Massage Therapist and how I can help you!
I have been massaging for literally longer than I can remember (my Abuela tells me stories of me going around giving back and foot massages whenever we had company), so I became a massage therapist because I have always been one.  I love it and can thing of nothing I would rather do!

How I became a Massage Therapist and how I can help you!
I have been massaging for literally longer than I can remember (my Abuela tells me stories of me going around giving back and foot massages whenever we had company), so I became a massage therapist because I have always been one.  I love it and can thing of nothing I would rather do!
I have dedicated myself to becoming an expert in pain relief and pelvic floor wellness.  I use deep, yet gentle techniques to follow your patterns of compensation and unwind the tension to bring you lasting results.  Conditions I am specially apt at helping are
Low Back Pain
Sciatica
PMS Symptoms
Menopausal Symptoms
Pelvic Pain
Vaginal Pain
Groin Pain
Hip Pain
Incontinence
Migraines
Headaches

Pain makes sense as a massage focus, but why pelvic dysfunction you ask?
At the age of seventeen, I began to suffer from vaginal and pelvic pain (way to start off light, I know).  I dealt with that embarrassing discomfort, accepting it an irreversible part of my life, until I was 23 at which point I decided that I deserved better.  For the next two years, I went to doctors and psychologists and physical therapists at least once a week every week.  Nothing really helped.  It wasn't until I incorporated massage and energy work that I began to see results.  Today, I am completely pain-free!
As I went through this process, I heard more and more stories of women who went through similar ordeals - trying everything to no avail - and realized that I wanted to help those women the same sense of empowerment and control I found when I resolved my pelvic floor dysfunction.

Important things to know about me as your therapist:
1) I like puzzles!  I like to find the root causes of problems and help you to fix them.  Often this means that it is impossible to fix that pain you've had in your shoulder for the past 30 years in one session, but you can count on me to make
2) I want you to get better as fast as possible so you can get back to your world.  I want for you to never *have* to come in to see me again.  (Though hopefully you'll want to come back for maintenance because you love my massage so much ;-D)  So when I recommend a frequency and length for your massage protocol, it's because that's what I assess to be what you need to reach your pain-free/stress-free/whatever-free goals as quickly as you want.
3) I love to hear your feedback!  No matter how intuitive my hands are, no matter how well I listen to what your muscles are saying, no one will ever know what you feel better than you.  If something feels really good, I want to know so we can keep on that track.  If something hurts or doesn't feel good, really let me know so we can try something different.  You're not offending me or hurting my feelings; you're helping me give you the massage you need.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Amazing experience! Rhiannon has a compassionate nature and listened to my concerns of neck and lower back pain. She was able to work on those areas without any discomfort. I felt so much better after the massage. I would highly recommend Rhiannon.

Rhiannon is great and she makes you completely relaxed. She seems to know all the pressure spots that are bothering you and adjusts them to make you feel less pressure and aches.

Best message I’ve ever had. She really takes the time to learn about what you want and delivers a fantastic massage.

Rhiannon is very thoughtful and very good. She made sure that I had an excellent experience by creating an atmosphere where I felt comfortable letting her know what I needed. Highly recommend.

i have gone to several massage therapist. I first met Rhiannon at the Farmers Market on Atlantic Ave. My shoulder was hurting up into my neck. She was giving chair massages. My shoulder and neck felt so much better after the massage; i could hardly believe it. I called her for a regular massage; it's now history. I go on a regular schedule. I am always recommending Philosopher's Stone Therapeutic Massage. I am so delighted and thankful I found her.

Issue entering the building through the intercom system---the intercom did not appear to be working. Good use of space and overall quiet and relaxing. Would come back again!
