More than 10 years ago, Transformation Bodywork owner Kathleen Fanning eschewed her corporate career for a more wholesome, fulfilling path. After earning her massage therapist certification in 2004, she traveled to an Indian orphanage where provided massage therapy to children with polio. She now works with two other licensed massage therapists at Transformation Bodywork, where they strive to impart tranquility on clientele through a variety of Eastern healing practices. Along with massage therapy services that range from hot stone to cranio-sacral, Transformation Bodywork also offers reflexology, health counseling, and personal training. Each service adopts a holistic approach, and the health counseling sessions cover all aspects of nourishment, including relationships and physical activity. Personal trainers travel to home gyms and health clubs to work within client schedules. Kathleen also shares deeksha—a spiritual practice through which she aims to impart clear mindedness, inner tranquility, and joyfulness to her clients, among other benefits.
