Welcome! Thank you for visiting my site! I have been a licensed massage therapist for over 25 years. I graduated from Bancroft School of Massage Therapy in 1994, where I have been an instructor since 1998. I developed and teach "Self-Awareness and Body Movement" classes throughout the massage program. I became a Certified Trager Practitioner in 2012 and an authorized Trager Introductory Workshop Leader in 2015. I offer Trager for Daily Life classes for the public. I have such a respect for this work that I volunteer my time as the current President for the National Organization (USTA), and the Northeast Trager Association (NETA). My Trager Practice is at Just Breathe in my hometown of Westborough, MA.
"Thank you for the great work you did on my body this past year including today. I have no pains or stiffness.
The rocking of the torso, shaking and pulling (elongating) of the limbs, and the turning and pulling (lengthening) of the neck and
head brought integration into my spine.
The same rocking, shaking, and pulling of my legs and feet decompressed my ankles, knees, and hips.
I had no pains getting out of my car after the 40 min drive home.
I am in more touch with my right shoulder as to how repetitive action has been affecting the function of its motion.
Always checking to keep it back and down for everything." JH
"Receiving a Trager session from Linda MacConnell is one of treats that I hope does not become a “rare treat”. Linda’s positive manner throughout the session is contagious. As I relaxed into her confident hands, I could feel my muscles becoming freer and my mood brightening as I relaxed and became totally present. Linda had just enough communication to make sure she was giving me the session that I needed at that time.
I felt great for several days after the session and with that great feeling I felt the gentle reminder to relax myself throughout the day. I am looking forward to my next Trager session with Linda.
Thank you, Linda." GH
