Centered Bodywork is the re-incarnation of Tonic Manual Therapies. The new name, new location and new energy better reflect a practice embracing both Therapeutic and Wellness approaches.

Centered Bodywork is dedicated to providing the unique, personalized attention you deserve to help with your present needs as well as your long-term health. Your specific concerns will be addressed using appropriate techniques drawn from a range of manual and massage therapy approaches, such as orthopedic massage, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy.

Whatever your ailment — injury, chronic pain, stress — your sessions will address both the symptoms and the causes. Whenever possible, you will receive tools and techniques that allow you take an active role in your healing and well-being. The goal is for you to feel better today and avoid discomfort in the future.

You will receive treatment from Mary Ericson. Mary is a Licensed Massage Therapist with certification in Orthopedic Massage from the Orthopedic Massage Education and Research Institute as well as extensive training in John Barnes’ Myofascial Release. In addition, Mary has received post-graduate training in movement re-education from Neuro Movement Integration and Practical Movement and in craniosacral therapy from the Upledger Institute. Through continuing education in a broad range of manual and massage therapy approaches, Mary is continually improving her ability to help you with your healing process.

In addition to nearly 10 years’ experience as a massage therapist, Mary is a 1989 cum laude graduate of Cornell Law School with over 20 years of legal experience. This background gives her an uncommon perspective and skill set to apply in her massage therapy practice.

Communication is critical to your treatment and is provided to the extent you desire it. Mary will listen to you, explain the therapy and answer your questions. The more information you have, the better you will be able to help yourself.
