SER I & II, Teaching Asst for CST I; Hugh Milne: Cranial 1,2 & 3; Viceral Manipulation 1A, Myofascial Release in Sports Medicine, Tom Myers: Intrinsic Muscles of the Pelvis, The Neck.

I believe that if you are not treating the fascia, you are not treating one of the main causes of pain and disability. I believe that you can work very deeply and yet very gently with the body, using only as much force as the tissues need to release. I also specialize in Myofascial Scar Release.

I have found craniosacral therapy to be one of the most powerful healing techniques. I have been working with traumatic brain & spinal cord injured patients at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital since 2000. It is some of the most difficult but also the most rewarding work that I do.

I have been a certified athletic trainer for 26 years, and bring my wealth of knowledge of the evaluation and treatment of orthopedic & sports injuries to my work as a massage therapist. I often combine therapeutic massage, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy to treat the root cause of your pain & disability while treating the symptoms.

Healing work is more than a profession for me, it is a life calling. When my own need for healing led me to explore alternative therapies, I realized that I wasn’t the only one in need of something different. After experiencing the benefits of massage firsthand, I decided to go to massage school. However, in my own experience, massage wasn’t enough. My search for deeper, longer lasting therapy that worked beyond just the physical body led me to Myofascial Release. Now, not only is this my specialty, it is my preferred modality to receive as well. The benefits that MFR has provided me, my patients, and countless others around the world are amazing. MFR is an absolute must for everyone wanting to live a full, happy, functional life!

Brighton

Anna Mulholland, NCBTMB Certified, Licensed in MA

Manna Massage
358 Chestnut Hill Ave, #207
Brighton, MA 02135
Contact Phone: 617-901-1311

Education and Continuing Education/Seminars:
MTI for basic training (Feb. 2006), CORE Structural Integration (10 months 2007-2008), Prenatal Massage (Summer 2006), Resistance Flexibility Strength Training with Bob Cooley (18 months through 09/2010), Liz Gaggini Training Series – Advanced Structural Integration – 4 workshops Summer 2011

My specialty and interests lie in restoring and improving bio-mechanical functionality primarily through addressing fascial adhesions within the soft tissue. My work is appropriate for individuals struggling with both chronic and acute pain conditions as well as athletes and others who wish to improve their performance. I try to provide education and insight into pain patterns for my clients through improved postural awareness, specific techniques to monitor and improve habitual postural patterns, and stretches and self-care techniques. The work I do can be challenging and requires active participation from the client. I recommend referring to my website and reading my YELP reviews to get a full flavor of the type of work that I engage in. I actively avoid working with individuals who are specifically interested in relaxation massage, although my work can be relaxing at times. The problem with relaxation work (apart from being boring) is that it inhibits the therapist from pursuing a solution to a musculoskeletal problem if that solution challenges the client.
