Marissa Andersen, LMT, RYT
Marissa is a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher. She graduated from the FingerLakes School of Massage in 2018, and completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Farm, Ithaca, NY.
Marissa's intention is to help people feel vibrant and more alive in their bodies, and reduce pain through massage. In her practice, she focuses on finding where the original pain is manifesting from and assisting with circulation, lymph flow, energetic densities in the body to help bring the body back to center and neutrality. She is passionate about the idea that by helping people get into a parasympathetic "rest and digest" state the body can heal itself.
Marissa listens to you and your body for what it needs in your time together. She pays attention just as much on your feet, legs, hips, core, chest and arms as she does on the knots in your back. She is very devoted to what she does and truly believes in the magic massage therapy offers. Marissa is also a yoga teacher and believes in the importance of a regular practice of breath work and body movement in maintaining health and well-being.
