Some individuals may perceive their losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in their back, others as the unflattering contour of their body, others as constant fatigue, yet others as an unrelentingly threatening environment. Those over forty may call it old age. And yet all these signals may be pointing to a single problem so prominent in their own structure, as well as others, that it has been ignored: they are off balance, they are at war with gravity. ~Ida Rolf

Margo Farnsworth has been drawn to nurturing people throughout her career. She’s been a licensed massage therapist since 2005, graduating from the Central Massachusetts School of Massage. She is continually seeking to extend her skills and practice and is passionate about her work (one client refers to her as a “massage nerd”). She takes a slower and deeper approach, focusing on creating a therapeutic effect. Margo’s practice centers on helping people recognize the patterns of their body movement and posture which lead to their discomfort and pain. Understanding that injury often occurs because the body is already out of balance, she places postural correction at the heart of her practice. Often a session will consist of both assisted stretching and massage.

SMRT - Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique

Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique (SMRT), taught by Dawn Lewis, is a concept that begins with passive contraction of muscles, ligaments, connective tissues, and bones simultaneously to allow spontaneous release of these structures. SMRT stimulates lymphatic flow and creates a natural unwinding of connective tissues, which allows the joints of the body to realign effortlessly, re-establishing correct posture. While doing all of this, SMRT also quickly alleviates soreness in tissue, permitting you to work deep tissues that have not been accessed before. Finally, SMRT release both physical and etheric energy. The release of the ATP necessary to hold muscles tight and joints out of alignment lets the body relax and further the healing in the area. The release of the etheric energy held in the area creates energetic flow through the meridians and chakras of the body.

Structural Essentals

The Structural Essential series (based in the principles of Anatomy Trains) is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Always professional
by Caitlin on Jun 18
I really enjoyed my massage Margo. I told her about some of the issues I have been having and she definitely listened and took that into consideration while doing the massage. There were even a few things I didn't think to mention that she noticed during the appointment which confirms that she truly knows what she's talking about. I've had a few other massages in the past, but this one felt very individualized to me and my needs. After my appointment I felt like I was walking different (in a good way!). I hope to make semi-regular appointments with Margo to keep my body in working order. I know I'm in good hands!

Margo is incredibly talented and just a really great person. She always knows what my body needs, she strives to have lots of tools in her toolbox to help people and I don’t think there’s anyone else in the area as talented!
