Licensed certified massage therapist Elizabeth Kennedy uses practiced kneading to seek out knots, kinks, and reservoirs of tension across the body. Deep-tissue work helps disrupt patterns of stress in lower layers of muscle, and Swedish sessions promote circulation and relaxation through gliding strokes. Prenatal sessions help soothe expectant mothers, and hot-stone sessions activate pressure points using smooth stones.
Jaclyn Ayotte, owner of Massage Therapy & Wellness of East Greenwich, grew up in a family that embraced alternative and holistic practices, and she herself had multiple conditions improved by chiropractic work and acupuncture. When her uncle died after a battle with melanoma, she was inspired to go into massage therapy and took an interest in massage for the elderly and those dealing with cancer. Since graduating from the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork, Jaclyn has earned certifications in other types of natural healing, such as reiki, reflexology, and acupressure. She also takes a particular interest in working with mothers-to-be and is a proponent of natural births and drug-free deliveries from storks that have passed thorough background checks.
