I am a Massage Therapist located in the Spring Valley Area of Northwest DC. I offer therapeutic and restorative massage to alleviate the stress and strain that hectic city life can have on your body, your nervous system and your mind.

During the twenty years I have been practicing massage, I have found that no two clients are alike. People's needs vary depending on their physical and mental state. I listen carefully and work intentionally and quietly in order to address the specific needs of each client.

My goal is to help you to walk out of a session not only relieved of bodily discomfort you may have been experiencing, but also relaxed and at peace because of time spent in stillness and rest.

Massage soothes muscular tension, increases circulation and supports the nervous system. In the quiet of a massage session, it is possible to find balance and renewal.

 
Marianne has a gift, and she gives it away each time she gives a massage. Her ability to tune into her clients is one of the reasons she is the best Massage Therapist I have ever experienced. The moment you enter her space, you are transformed by her deep respect for you, her client. She generously brings empathy, connection and honesty to each massage.
Hers is unlike any massage I have ever received. It’s an experience that will stay with you for a long time.”

I am a 66-year-old adventure athlete. I rock climb, I hike, I backcountry ski, I mountain bike, I am a mountaineer. I am serious about what I do. I have experienced considerable wear and tear over the course of time. Marianne has kept me in the game.”

Muscle stiffness is a given with Parkinson’s Disease. I have had occasional massages over the course of my 87 years. I enjoyed them but never thought of signing up for them on a regular basis. After my first massage with Marianne, I told her to schedule me for a weekly massage. Her massages help with the stiffness, but what I really like is I spend most of the hour in a serene zone halfway between sleeping and waking so I end the hour greatly relaxed physically and emotionally.”

Marianne takes the time to listen to her clients, both verbally and on the table. She takes the time to talk with you about what is stressful in your life and then focuses on what is being manifested in your body. As she works, she has a great ability to understand the reactions and responses of your body and then uses massage accordingly. She’s thoughtful, intentional and devoted to her work. I continue to be impressed by all that she does.”
