Hi! My name is Marianne, your massage therapist for Jacksonville and St. Augustine, FL, the oldest city in the nation.
Have you ever thought how deeply music can take you, and to combine it with the healing touch of massage, can only enhance the experience. While still in school, my thought was that if I can bring my client to a heightened state of relaxation through my healing touch and to combine it with my love of music, then I’m onto something. It was then that a friend told me about Dr. Dot.
This was precisely what I was looking for. I was introduced to massage through a Shaman friend of mine, while living in DC in 1994, after a back issue left me with little mobility. Little did I know that the healing aspects he saw within me then, is what I would be doing many years later.
Working on family and friends for roughly 20+ years, and knowing my gift for massage at an early age, I recently decided that it would be in my best interest to become licensed as a massage therapist. Throughout the course of my lifetime, I have been surrounded with music and musicians, and worked with them whether singing or writing, in the States and overseas. I understand the rigors of being on the road, in uncomfortable buses for days and weeks at a time. In combining two great loves of mine, music and massage; as music is my air, and my hands are my gift, I have found my true path in life.
I have been told by numerous people, that my touch is very deep with strong hands with healing properties. I specialize in deep tissue, traditional Swedish, chair and my own integration of intuition, healing and positive imagery. In blending a music/Psychology major, I always knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and in the world.
Music is about the emotion, and massage; the mental and physical. My motto is, “You never know how stressed you are, until someone lays a hand on you”. My goal is to be that person that takes away your pain and leaves you with a sense of total peace. I look forward to working with you!!
