b.a., lmt, arcb certified reflexologist, certified
Andrea earned her BA in Anthropology in 1990 from Williams Smith College.

Andrea then expanded into massage therapy through a variety of workshops and has maintained a busy practice in both a clinical and spa setting.

Travis James Humphrey
LMT, Reiki Master Practitioner
Although licensed as a massage therapist and initially specializing in deep tissue manipulation, Travis found his true home within the practice of Reiki and now offers a primarily energy-based bodywork experience to his clients. He believes deeply in the healing power of an integrated mind, body, and spirit, and clients can expect a focused yet holistic approach to their “Bear Paw” Reiki session with Travis. As a United States Air Force veteran, former Emergency Medical Technician, and current Licensed Massage Therapist, Travis is mindful of misperceptions regarding Reiki, and as part of his practice, seeks to demystify the modality and make Reiki accessible to all who are open to its healing potential.
“Bear Paw” Reiki
“Bear Paw” Reiki is Travis’ personal and unique adaptation to the more traditional and formal Reiki of Dr. Mikao Usui. Put simply, Travis acts as a conduit between the healing energy that is all around us, and his clients. Another way to look at it is that the client is a car with a rundown battery, the previously mentioned healing energy is an inexhaustible power source, and Travis is a really good set of jumper-cables. That healing energy then allows the client’s energetic system to simply recharge itself. Clients remain completely clothed and leave their session feeling deeply relaxed, and in a heightened state of integration, balance, and self-awareness.
Hado, Guasha and Raindrop Therapy
In 2007, Leanne trained in Austin, TX in the healing work of Hado by Master Practioner Toyoko Matsuzaki of Japan where hado is commonly used for healing and injury recovery. Hado incorporates applying pressure to specific release points in addition to energy work through the body. This energy movement allows the space for the body to rebalance, aids in resolving chronic injuries and results in sometimes avoiding more invasive options. Guasha, a form of “scraping” using tools to eliviate pain and address functional problems with restricted movement. In 2009, Leanne trained in Raindrop therapy in Seacaucus, NJ through the Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education (CARE). This technique involves placing drops of therapeutic grade essential oils on the back and spine. The essential oils help remove toxins that settle along the spinal column by increasing blood circulation and energetically rebalancing the body. The application helps relax the muscles and relieves stress. Leanne combines Hado, Guasha and Essential Oils to provide a unique session for each clients based on their individual needs. The common thread among her clients is that they come to her when they have “tried everything else.” She has had some great success with athletes and getting them back into their sport. As a active cyclist, skier, and yoga participant, Leanne understands the importance of healing and restorative function so the body can heal and yet properly preparing so you may return to the activities you love.

I became a Trager Practitioner in 1991 and since this time have worked in private and group settings offering Trager and Mentastics. In the beginning of my Trager career I worked in conjunction with Osteopathic doctors who specialized in Osteopathic Manipulation and Cranial Sacral work. Trager work and Osteopathy fit very well together. Over the years I have enjoyed working with 1000’s of clients with many diverse states of health and wellness, ranging from professional athletes to hospice patients. I also developed a strong interest in rehabilitating animals with the Trager Approach. Starting in 1998 I began using principles of Trager, Connected riding*, Centered riding* and T.E.A.M * to working with horses and riders helping each become more open, fluid and at ease. I have taken extensive continuing education courses from the United States Trager Association. My most recent training was in May 2013, “Releasing the Spine” with Deane Juhan. In 2002 I completed Transformational Breath work training. In 2005 I joined with other complementary health care providers to create an integrative medical setting where clients were treated in a team approach. In 2006 I once again teamed up with an Osteopathic Doctor making Trager insurance reimbursable. In 2008 I started supporting people in wilderness spiritual quest and graduated from Earth Circle Spiritual Leadership training. In 2012 I received my BS in Nursing at the University of Maine in Fort Kent. I currently work at St Mary’s Hospital as a Nurse. In 2012 I joined the highly skilled team at Aon and became a member of The United States Board of Directors and currently serve the larger Trager vision and community in that role.
