Stacy Every, Licensed Massage Therapist
I’m Stacy Every, licensed massage therapist and passionate practitioner of therapeutic massage in Westfield, Massachusetts. I graduated from the Massage Therapy Program at Springfield Technical Community College in Springfield, MA. Through my background in education, fitness, and nutrition, as well as my network of holistic health care practitioners, I offer a full experience for your greatest health.
I believe that we all can heal from many conditions when we receive support. Through compassionate touch and therapeutic techniques, massage therapy helps you stay healthy.
My areas of expertise include:
Repetitive stress injuries
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the injury everyone knows. But using computers and sitting at a desk can injure the entire body over time. Tight and stressed shoulders, a stiff neck, and tight hamstrings can all result from the typical desk job. Massage is a perfect treatment for these issues. Not only will it help heal injuries faster, but regular massage will also help keep you from getting injured in the first place.
Massage is excellent support for anyone in cancer treatment. It helps relieve the pain, fatigue, stress, and nausea caused by cancer and medical procedures. I have completed the nationally-recognized Tracy Walton training program for massage therapists in Oncology Massage. When caring for clients with cancer, I complete a thorough intake to ensure you feel well after your session.
Stress of life
We live in a stressful society. But often we are unaware of the effect stress has on our physical, emotional, and mental health. You may have heard that massage is “only” a stress reliever. But many disorders and diseases are caused by stress. Decreasing stress helps boost your immunity, help you sleep better, and promotes healing. Massage also can bring down blood pressure, increase circulation, and increase your sense of peace, happiness, and well-being.
Massage provides physical relief from anxiety, pain, and fatigue, and is emotionally supportive. Hospice agencies regularly offer massage to patients at the end of their lives. I will travel to your loved one’s location, be it in a home or nursing facility, to further support the dying as they transition.
Reiki is a gentle Japanese energy therapy that helps you relax and heal. Reiki helps release tension, speed healing, and provides more energy and flow in your life. It’s especially good for extreme stress, and for when touch is uncomfortable.
