A Certified Massage Therapist since 2003, Barbara is also licensed by the state of Pennsylvania and nationally certified by the NCBTMB.
Barbara approaches therapeutic massage as an integrative experience; combining a variety of styles and techniques to relax and renew her clients. Since 2006, she has studied extensively with John F. Barnes, PT to learn his approach to Myofascial Release.
In October 2014 Barbara published her first book, Kick Pain in the Kitchen: Holistic Pain Relief You Can Eat. It offers you a holistic approach to pain relief that can be integrated with many treatment plans. It’s full of straightforward, every day steps that you can start using right away. Learn why healthy, whole foods and other pain relieving changes can help. Plus, get a practical game plan structured through the meals of the day. Kick Pain in the Kitchen is part informational, part inspirational, and part practical. You’ll finish the book with plenty of options and a new focus on healthy habits to relieve your pain naturally.
She says, “I strive to give clients an experience of being nurtured while engaging their body’s own healing power through therapeutic touch.”
Her core training in Swedish massage is enhanced by sports massage, energy work, foot reflexology, hot stones, and most recently Bowenwork. Lorelei has completed six courses of this amazing, therapeutic technique and is focused on becoming a certified Bowenwork practitioner. For more about Bowen, go to www.bowenworkacademyusa.com.
Lorelei is thrilled to be practicing at Bodyworks and is currently accepting new clients. She welcomes the opportunity to be a part of your wellness team.
