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.

The Anatomy Trains scheme offers a language that most hands-on therapists, regardless of their modality, can use to see their clients more clearly, and communicate to colleagues and clients how the neuro-myofascial web is configured by their "acture" (posture in action - Feldenkrais coined this word to indicate consistent patterns in both stance and movement).

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Mar 09
Combined stretching with massage. Was able to diagnose where I was tight from the stretching session, and work on those areas during massage.

Margo is my go-to therapist. She's been able to help me correct many problems over the years, and is very helpful in suggesting life-changes I can make to help counter the problems brought about by sitting at a computer for long periods at a time. My body tells me when it's been too long between sessions!
