Biodynamic massage and cranial therapists

 

Molly McMullen shares an office with me at 510 NE Dekum and is trained in the same biodynamic lineage. We have been learning and practicing together for many years.

 

Molly considers herself a student of Nature’s intelligence and has spent the last 15 years observing its relationship to the human body, during extensive bodywork education, dance, yoga, and inner-body meditation. She listens deeply to each human (and non-human) body she encounters and holds a compassionate presence as long-held patterns of tension unfold and move toward greater ease and integration. 

 

Office hours: Molly is available by appointment on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Angie Ringwald Williams also shares an office with me at 510 NE Dekum and is trained in the same lineage of cranial therapy.  A few years ago she completed the 6-month biodynamic cranial therapy mentorship with Todd Jackson, considered to be the gold standard for an advanced practitioner in our field.

 

Angie specializes in Biodynamic Massage and Craniosacral. She has found great success for over 15 years in providing relief for stress, anxiety, major life transitions, chronic and/or acute pain from injuries or car accidents, and migraine headaches. She partners with clients who want to take an active role in maintaining their health. In each session, she listens from a non-judgemental and accepting place to provide caring touch and precise pressure, both subtle and deep, to unwind areas of tension and restore vitality. 

 

Office hours:  Monday, Thursday, and Friday 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
