OUR THERAPISTS

SHAKTI ROWAN 
specializes in integrative techniques and tailors her massage for each of her clients needs. Graduating from Massachusetts Institute of Therapeutic Massage in 2003, she began working at CIC in Cambridge.
Shakti continued her studies in therapeutic modalities and brings a toolbox full of skills to support her clients. For more than thirteen years, she has been using therapeutic techniques such as Muscular Therapy, Swedish Massage, Myofascial techniques, and Ashiatsu (barefoot Shiatsu). She also enjoys supporting pregnancy from pre- to post-natal. In addition to traditional massage, Shakti is also available for sessions of assisted stretching (in which clients can learn stretches to take home and work on between sessions) as well as Reiki (energy healing). Shakti has advanced certifications in Thai Yoga Massage and Ashiatsu barefoot therapy, and a Hatha Yoga certification from the National Yoga Alliance.

LAUREN LEVINE is a Muscular Therapist who received her training at The Muscular Therapy Institute in 2006. Her goal is to help aid others in healing themselves through personalized bodywork sessions focusing on relieving stress, rebalancing compensatory tension patterns throughout the body usually developed by repetitive stress or inaction, misalignments and injuries, and increasing range of motion due to muscular and fascial restrictions. Her intent is to help you find more ease and flow in your body through a combination of hands-on techniques based in Muscular Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Thai Yoga Bodywork, assisted stretching and self-care suggestions. Lauren is also an artist working in the Boston area.
