Lynn Mace, CMT is certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. She holds a certificate to practice massage therapy in Virginia, and has licensure in Florida.

Lynn’s core approach is based on working with the whole person and listening deeply to the specific needs of the body. Each session is uniquely tailored to the individual and is congruent with the client’s long-term goals and current issues.

With over two decades of experience working with the different body systems, Lynn has completed advanced studies in craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, and visceral work (described in detail below). She incorporates her studies in structural integration to guide the body into better alignment, and her method ranges from lighter energetic touch to deep tissue work to access, reconnect, and reintegrate the various body systems.

Working with the interfaces of these interconnected systems can deepen awareness, enhance vitality, and restore a sense of wholeness. This whole-body approach to profound healing can lead to greater ease in movement during everyday tasks as well as build immune strength, improve digestion, relieve pain, and increase energy.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a subtle touch approach that accesses and assists the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid flowing around the brain and spinal cord. Allowing this fluid to move freely has far-reaching effects on nervous system function.

CST helps the nervous system regulate all body functions. It is used to treat a variety of issues such as

  • headaches (including migraines)
  • spine-related issues (neck and/or back pain)
  • temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD)
  • endocrine/hormonal dysfunction
  • digestive and immune system issues

Myofascial work treats the connective tissue (myofascia) of the body, the strong “scaffolding” that holds everything in the body together. This tissue can become tough, dehydrated and fixed anywhere in the body, inhibiting free movement. Hands-on work can open up restrictions in the myofascia, improving circulation, moving lymphatic fluid, and restoring fluid movement to muscles and joints. The touch in myofascial work ranges from light to deep depending on personal pain tolerances and the unique needs of the body.

Myofascial work is used to help issues such as

  • headaches
  • spine-related issues (neck and/or back pain)
  • temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD)
  • sciatica
  • numbness/tingling in the extremities
  • scar tissue
  • stiffness/lack of mobility in the joints

Lymphatic work moves lymphatic fluid with a light touch. Working with the lymphatic drainage pathways in a specific order assists fluid movement and eases fluid back up anywhere in the body. Detoxification, reduction in swelling, faster healing, and enhanced immune function are some of the many benefits of lymphatic work.

Visceral work seeks to bring the movement and function of the internal organs into balance. Each organ has its own signature movement and relationship with the other organs. Healthy visceral movement can be obstructed by injury, surgery, incorrect posture, and poor nutrition. Mobilizing and balancing the organs can facilitate improvement in breathing, digestion, and elimination and yield cardiac, urological, and reproductive benefits. Freeing the organs also allows the musculoskeletal system to return to its natural alignment more easily.

All four of these approaches can be employed exclusively or in combination to address overall goals and specific needs at the time of the session. Lynn works with safe, sensitive, and trustworthy therapeutic presence, allowing the fully integrative session to restore and renew body, mind, and spirit.
