A Happy Body

Brings forth a happy mind

Massage has been utilized as a form of therapy and healing for thousands of years. Though widely used and accepted in other cultures for centuries and sometimes millennia, massage has only fairly recently grown in popularity in the US. As familiarity with and understanding of this powerful tool of wellbeing spreads, it is quickly becoming a sought after treatment, working its way into many settings, including medical offices and hospitals.

I am a Nationally Certified and State Registered Massage Practitioner with additional training and certification as a Prenatal Massage Therapist and a Fertility Massage Specialist.

I have been trained in a variety of modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Acupressure, and Trigger Point – all of which I incorporate into each session to provide a unique and one of a kind experience for my clients based on their individual needs. I am constantly expanding my knowledge, experience and expertise in bodywork and I attend workshops and classes as often as possible to enhance my skills to better serve my clients. I believe that we should never stop learning or growing and that it is my responsibility to my clients to always remain open to new and improved methods of healing and wellness.

I firmly believe that mind/body balance is the key to whole health and I strive to encourage this balance in each of my clients by providing a therapy that not only decreases muscle tension and pain, but also results in better emotional balance and general well-being. It is my belief that massage is an exceptional, natural, and compassionate way to assist the body in its own healing process.

I hope I will see you soon on your journey to greater balance and health!

I spent my 8-year massage career working overseas caring for our Military and Foreign Service communities. In the high stress environments of the U.S. Embassy in Yemen and our Army bases in Italy and Germany I assisted all branches of the military, spouses and other family members, the international diplomatic community as well as local nationals working on our bases with stress reduction, injury and pain remediation, Sports, Prenatal, and Oncology Massage.

With the eclectic nature of my clientele, I am able to listen to your concerns and requests for massage therapy and adapt the massage for each individual.

I completed my training at Irene’s Myomassology Institute in Michigan, including Prenatal, Sports, Active Isolated Stretching, Swedish, Thai and Shiatsu techniques. I furthered my training with Tracy Walton & Associates’ Oncology Massage. I also have experience helping people with migraine headaches and Fibromyalgia. I am a member of AMTA, ABMP, S4OM, and am Board certified through the NCBTMB.

I have been practicing massage since 2004. I was drawn to the work out of a fascination with physiology and anatomy and an intuition for touch. My first continuing education after graduation was Oncology Massage and that set the tone for my work. I have learned Manual Lymph Drainage, I am certified in Massage for the Childbearing Year including pregnancy, perinatal and labor support techniques. I am comfortable working with sensitive health needs and I feel that my work aligns well with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. I live in Columbia with my son and husband. I am also a student clinic instructor at my Alma Mater, Potomac Massage Training Institute

Alex is a graduate of the Central Maryland School of Massage and provides relaxation and therapeutic treatment. Her intention is to help ease daily pains, discomforts and trauma as well as working alongside modern day medicine which can be particularly hard on the body. She believes massage can improve emotional and physical wellbeing and encourages that clients feel free to interact before, during and after a massage in order to create a more comfortable environment.

I received the best massage ever by Ondine. She took time to explain the massage (lymphatic), and thoroughly answered the questions I had. Her technique was amazing and really worked out some major kinks in my neck and back! I bought a membership and am already booked for my next session with her and can’t wait. I’d give 10 stars if I could! David at the front desk was also very nice and super helpful. Looking forward to making the services offered part of my wellness regimen.

Best massage ever! I highly recommend seeing Jennifer Coyne for your next massage. As an athlete, she knew the pain I had been suffering from and released all of the stress from my shoulders/back/hips etc., it was a life changing massage!

I have had 2 massages with Sarah. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. The knots were gone and I felt refreshed. Awaken is clean and friendly.
