Reiki with Tina Bernabo
Reiki (“ray-key”) means universal life force, the energy that is all around us and within us. It is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique. Energy flows through the arms and hands of the practitioner and into the cells of the person being treated. It vitalizes and balances the body, mind and spirit, bringing comfort and speeding the healing process.

Craniosacral Therapy with Margaret Connolly
This light-touch therapy releases tension patterns absorbed by the body as the result of a lifetime of mental and physical demands. These energetic restrictions can cause pain and other wide-ranging negative effects on health, both mental and physical. Craniosacral therapy releases these blockages and is one of the most effective forms of bodywork for stress relief you’ll ever experience.
$110/one hour • Contact Margaret Connolly at 610.202.4778

Half and Half with Margaret Connolly
This 90-minute session combines massage and craniosacral work. The first 45 minutes are dedicated to a massage of those areas that need a physical release. The second half of the session is devoted to craniosacral therapy, letting the body and mind decide together what areas to focus on for release.
$140/hour and a half • Contact Margaret Connolly at 610.202.4778

Reflexology with Emily Snider
This natural bodywork technique — which involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet — improves circulation and promotes deep relaxation throughout the body. This gentle modality is a powerful way to relieve tension and stress and to increase one’s sense of overall well-being.

About Our Therapists

Margaret Connolly: 610.202.4778
Margaret was called to bodywork in the 90’s when a recurring ear infection interfered with her teaching college seminars in literature and humanities. Sessions in craniosacral therapy resolved the problem, convincing her of its benefits. Her early craniosacral and bodywork studies took place at the Osteopathic Health and Wellness Institute, and she later studied massage at the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy, including advanced work in corrective medical massage and massage for pregnant and postpartum women. She recently completed a two-and-a-half year training program in biodynamic craniosacral therapy with Franklyn Sills, director of the Karuna Institute. Margaret is certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
For Margaret, massage is much more than an occasional treat, and craniosacral work can peel off, one-by-one, the restrictions that impede personal functioning, for an integrated mind, body and spirit.

Amy Nash: 610.585.7347
Amy is Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and received her training at the Massage Arts Center of Philadelphia. She has advanced certification in pregnancy massage, and has received additional training in Reiki and Thai massage. Amy holds a Master’s degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr College.
Amy’s bodywork practice is informed by a longtime study of yoga and meditation, and her intention is based on mindfulness, compassion, and humor (she is also a longtime student/performer of improv comedy.) Working from a holistic approach, each session with Amy is an individualized treatment incorporating a variety of therapeutic techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, Reiki and acupressure to promote deep relaxation, relieve tension, and restore the body to a natural state of balance.

Emily Snider: 213.713.1847
With her compassionate, calming presence and therapeutic touch, Emily has a special gift for supporting the journey into deep relaxation and healing with each reflexology session. Having experienced her own return to health with the aid of reflexology, Emily has a deep respect for this simple and elegant healing modality. Her Center City and Main Line practice focuses on complementing other forms of medical treatment and healthy lifestyle measures being pursued by the client. Emily is a certified foot reflexologist through Wendy Coad, a former director of the American Reflexology Certification Board, and teacher at New York’s Open Center. Emily’s healing work is also informed by her study of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Yo San University in Los Angeles, CA and a living meditation practice that sometimes includes formal sitting, but often takes the form of songwriting and gardening.

Tina Bernabo: 610.322.1522
Tina’s inner journey of personal growth and outer health challenges led her to become certified as a Reiki III Practioner where she is able to use her gifts of intuition and empathy while pursuing her passion for supporting and helping others. Her healing arts practice is supported by a joyful daily spiritual discipline including yoga and meditation, as well as by her work as a musician and teacher.
