Maureen Boksa, LMT
Moe believes very strongly in the body-mind connection and tailoring treatments to the needs of each client. Whether the time is right for deep overall relaxation, specialized injury work, improved body alignment, or movement of emotions, her approach is teamwork based. Working together with the client to achieve specific goals, treatments may always be modified before or during a session. The focus is to provide work deep into the tissues in a comfortable and productive way.
Moe uses integrated techniques, strongly influenced by traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. This work is characterized by long flowing strokes of the forearms, bringing deep therapeutic work all the way through the layers of the body to the level of the bones, which are considered the ‘mana’ or origin of life force, in Hawaiian tradition.
This style of work is fluid and soothing, each movement having specific intention. There is constant attention to detail and the entire body is addressed, acknowledging the importance of the anatomical, physiological, and emotional connections that extend from head to toe. This work is suitable for all types of massage clients, from those looking to relieve and reinvent chronic body pattern stressors, to those with acute personal, sport, work, or motor vehicle injuries.
