Mary Patterson, CR, RM, LMT
Mary offers foot and hand reflexology, Reiki, and massage at School Street Yoga. Massage styles include pregnancy, Swedish & hot stone. She is able to incorporate stretches into your massage.
With reflexology, the client remains fully clothed during the session. This involves working on reflex points in the hands and feet, which correspond to different organs and areas of the body. Working these reflex areas sends a chain reaction through the body to increase circulation, promote relaxation, and help the body return to balance. It helps promote health and wellness, as well as recovery from injuries or illnesses. It has been known to help reduce pain, lower high blood pressure, improve circulation, help manage type II diabetes, help digestive issues and immunity, balance hormones, and help sleep.
Mary is eager to share her passion for wellness through her service oriented work and hopes to inspire and help others along their path towards health and well-being.
