About Us

My name is Hollace Detwiler & Metta Body Therapy is my practice. I am a licensed massage therapist & have been treating clients since 2007. I approach the body as an integrated dynamic whole rather than individual parts. I work within the body's myofascial system, utilizing various techniques, to release restrictions in the tissue and therefore promote increased blood flow, flexibility and range of motion and ease pain/discomfort. Our bodies endure a multitude of stress factors every day from repetitive actions & poor posture to trauma from accidents, sports injuries or hard physical labor to chronic tension from emotional & psychological stress. Therapeutic bodywork can do wonders to alleviate this stress and restore a sense of balance to the body, mind & spirit. My goal is to ease the... more

Hollace is the real deal! I'm an elite rower and needed some work on my back and hamstrings. Hollace knew exactly how to get into the areas that needed attention. She also took the time to show me some new stretches and things I could do at home. It's hard to find someone with such great knowledge of the body and manual skill. I'd highly recommend her to athletes, people dealing with chronic pain, or anyone just looking for an excellent massage!

Hollace is an extremely gifted massage therapist. Her techniques are intuitive to the needs of her clients, and she is very thorough in her assessments before massages begin. I have been coming to Hollace for a few years and she has helped me find and eliminate a previously elusive and extremely intense pain behind my ear. Hollace always makes me feel comfortable and has a lovely space that I enjoy visiting. She is amazing at what she does!

Hollace truly is a healer. I've seen her for 3 sessions of Craniosacral therapy to help me cope with a recent onset of tinnitus and I can say that the sessions have been truly healing. While there's no quick fix for tinnitus yet, these session have done a great deal to calm me down and refocus me. It's a subtle therapy that works in stillness, and if you have problems spinning out and perhaps that gets fueled by a ringing in the ear, I'd highly recommend a Cranaiosacral session with Hollace. The more I've worked on myself, with CST, the more I've calmed down, and the more the tinnitus has tended to back off and/or become more manageable. I've even experienced a few moments of true silence. No small thing and I credit Hollace with helping me to calm myself to the point where progress like that is possible. I'm excited to keep it up!

i've been getting a Hollace massage twice a month for several years - I think of it as my "tune-up." when I go away and don't get one for a while, I can tell! All the kinks, tightness and mis-alignment come back, and I so Iook forward to having Hollace massage it all away. In my Senior years, this seems like a good investment. Louise Strawbridge

Hands down, the BEST massage I've ever had. Hollace really listened to my needs and was considerate of my health condition before she devised the plan for my massage. I went in to her space in a lot of pain and left with increased mobility and sense of complete relaxation. Her space is soothing and comfortable. Hollace is a real gem of a human being.
