Hello, and thank you for your interest in receiving a massage from me. My name is Shannon Reed, and I would like to tell you a little about myself and why I became a Massage Therapist. It started when I was little. My dad would give me back rubs at bedtime, which helped me fall asleep. I absolutely loved them! When I was in high school, I realized I had the gift of Massage and wanted to help make people feel better.
It makes me so happy to know I am helping someone else and able to get rid of their pain and discomfort. Or to help them relax and sleep better, from their busy, hectic, stressful days.
I graduated in 2004 from The Baltimore School of Massage and became licensed in the State of Maryland in 2005. As a certified member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, I am always working on new continuing education opportunities to expand my depth of knowledge so I may better serve my clients.
My experiences include working in Wellness Centers, Gyms and professional as well as collegiate sports teams through Pro Sports Massage. Although I am experienced in and incorporate many modalities in my massage, my specialty is Deep Tissue Massage.
When you come to see me, we will go over the goals of your session. If you come in with pain in your neck, which is my favorite area to work. Or if you have a headache, whiplash, frozen shoulder, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, etc., I will do my best to make sure you leave my office feeling like a whole new person.
It can take more then a few sessions to make you feel better, especially if you have whiplash or a chronic condition. I will look at you and access your body first. After the massage, we will compare and see how much better you are looking and feeling. You may be given some stretches to do at home until I see you again, so I hope you do them!
My spacious private practice, which began in 2009, is located at historic Main Street, in Reisterstown Maryland.
I really look forward to meeting you and helping you with your journey of recovery, healing or just relaxation. I am by appointment only, you can book online for your convenience, or you may phone or text me. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!
