Marian Wolfe Dixon, MA, LMT, NCTMB,  is a nationally certified licensed massage therapist and hypnotherapist with master's degrees in psychology and health education.

My focus is helping people with complex medical profiles build health that is manageable and sustainable.
My clientele includes:

  • people living with chronic pain, (including fibromyalgia and jaw joint problems)
  • PMS
  • IBS (symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome such as bloating, gas, and constipation)  
  • insomnia and
  • anxiety
  • rehabilitating sports injuries
  • people recovering from auto accidents  (MVA insurance billing)
I help people with cancer, MS, and PD  and other "intractable" conditions to optimize function and mobilize inner resources that were previously untapped.  Having lived with medically unexplained pain for over ten years, I know how it feels from the inside when I touch people who hurt.  

I also offer short craniosacral, lymphatic, and myofascial sessions for infants and children, and longer focused massage or hypnosis sessions for rehabilitating athletes, dancers, and anyone seeking to maintain or achieve optimum health and performance.
