IRENE POOLE, Deep Tissue Massage, Zero Balancing, Reflexology

About me and my work:

I entered massage school in 1994, graduating from the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1996.  I had discovered much relief, personally, from receiving massage, and wanted to share this healing gift with others.  I specialize in working with people who suffer from chronic pain, soft-tissue injuries, sports-related injuries and complications, and more.

After completing my training at the Muscular Therapy Institute, I spent a year studying injury evaluation and treatment in the  "Benjamin Advanced Training" program; I received that certification in December 1996.  I have also studied Myofascial Release with John Barnes and Marcia Hood, Aston Therapeutics, Reiki, Touch for Health, Reflexology, and Zero Balancing (I was certified in Zero Balancing in 2008).

Because I have been a life-long athlete, and have worked with my hands for so many years, I know personally the aches and pains of aging active people.  

Incorporating a little of each modality I have studied into my sessions, I tailor each session to my client's specific needs.  I work deeply and intuitively.  

Since settling in Vermont in 1997, I have moved from my office at the SomaWork Wellness Center, to starting the Middlebury Holistic Health Center (in 1999), to opening my private practice in 2007.   My office is in downtown Middlebury in the historic Star Mill building near Frog Hollow. The ultimate goal of my work is to balance, heal, and integrate body, mind, and spirit.
