Lory Bedotto LMT, NCBTMB
Founder, Longtide Wellness and Cville Massage Therapy
Master level - Massage Therapist
I began my professional career in massage therapy in 1989. Over the years, I have studied, developed and practiced many modalities including neuromuscular therapy, lymphatic drainage, massage cupping, prenatal massage, craniosacral therapy and sports massage. A large portion of my client have come in as a last resort for chronic pain and find much benefit and relief from my approach. I also support clients in countering and healing the effects of poor posture through manual support and postural re-education.
Another avenue of my work includes a slower pace and deeper healing in craniosacral therapy and vagus nerve regulation. These more subtle modalities can prove to be the most beneficial for some. In my years of practice and three year training in pre and perinatal studies, I have come to understand the ways in which trauma, if not resolved, can be held in the body creating physical symptoms. Some of these symptoms can include chronic headaches, anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
I offer an open and listening heart along with a safely held space for fear, shock, emotional distress and imprints from accidents, birth trauma or illnesses to come to the surface to be heard and released. I believe in the inherent ability in the body to heal itself and release anything that creates imbalance therein. Clients will often feel a sense of relief, a deeper understanding of themselves and a quality of clarity after a session.
