She uses long, flowing strokes to gently loosen muscles and undo tension wrought upon the body by the daily stresses of work and nightly stresses of dreams that you're still at work.

MaryAnn Sumaraga could barely get out of bed. With an impending back surgery on the horizon, she visited an acupressure therapist in hopes of relieving some of the pain caused by her chronic sciatica. Six weeks later, she cancelled her back surgery, and marched effortlessly into the classrooms at the Holistic Life Institution of Massage and Natural Health, ready to dedicate her life to helping others the way her acupressure therapist had helped her.
After discovering the healing properties of massage, MaryAnn went full throttle, absorbing additional expertise in bodywork, energy work, and Reiki. With 1000 hours of practice under her belt––not to mention additional certifications in homeopathy, herbology, and iridology––she creates tailored, client-centered treatments that often blend massage, aromatherapy, and nutritional advice. She views each client as biochemically unique, and tends to them only after she has a full picture of their pain, so that she can treat it with more specificity than with what she refers to as "cookbook approaches," which are often tailored to the therapeutic needs of tense gingerbread men.
