A student of Chinese medicine for more than 25 years, Hayley Mermelstein supplements her acupuncture and shiatsu massage with energy healing from the Tong Ren tradition of her mentor Tom Tam. Her studies began in 1987 under the guidance of Janet Murphy at the University of Massachusetts, where she designed her own major in shiatsu, and she opened a practice immediately upon graduation. Today, Mermelstein also leads meditation classes following the principles of her teacher Ellen Tadd. In 2003, Hayley completed her formal acupuncture training, graduating from the New England School of Acupuncture and White Pine Healing Arts and earning a mortarboard that doubles as an emergency massage bed.
Vibrant Chinese artwork lines the walls of Amherst Chinese Medicine’s intimate office, where skilled therapists revitalize mind and body with custom acupuncture, herbal medicine, and therapeutic-massage treatments. Informed by traditional Chinese medical practices, dietary therapies promote slimmer physiques, and signature Chinese herbal facials awaken somnolent pores with revitalizing jade stimulation and a splash of steamy green tea. To further encourage holistic healing, many of the office’s treatments incorporate natural herbs and remedies such as a botanical facial cleanser with soothing flower-oil extracts.
The roster of modalities that Ted Schiff leads in his massage workshops casts a wide net, much like he has done with his career. He possesses multiple certifications in specialties that include Thai yoga massage and reflexology, a modality that he's also taught to aspiring therapists. He's also experienced in medical massage, helping alleviate chronic pain and provide relaxation to oncology and hematology patients. Ted calls upon this varied experience when working with his clients at Valley Massage Therapy. He tailors each session to his client's needs, whether they're just looking for an hour to relax, want to find relief from knotted muscles, or need inspiration for an onstage role as a wad of bread dough.
Taking a holistic approach to health care, Center for Cranio Sacral Therapy's certified therapist and Waldorf teacher John Rollinson tackles the corporeal conundrums of patients aged 1 day to 101 years with gentle manipulations of the cranial and spinal membranes. After a brief consultation to determine the best course of action, John sets about his work gently touching the scalp and spine to restore balance, alleviate stress, reduce aches, and refill the craniosacral system’s Pez dispensers. Rollinson also practices SomatoEmotional Release (SER), which helps patients to release or redirect repressed emotional energy.
From soothing scalp massages and facials with foot massages, every service at More Than Skin Deep centers on pampering the client. Back treatments polish and soften hard-to-reach spots with a cleanse, steam, and a sugar or salt scrub followed by moisturizer.
