Raven’s interest in massage was apparent as a child when they would massage away the stress from in their mother’s shoulders.
They honed their healing instincts with solid clinical training at the renowned Finger Lakes School of Massage, where they refined their passion for therapeutic bodywork.
Raven combines a wide variety of modalities to meet the individual needs and health goals of their clients. They integrates trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, KAM (kinesthetic awareness through movement) and NMT (neuromuscular therapy) to create an effective, personalized healing experience. They are also trained in Swedish, Shiatsu, Pregnancy, Sports and Ayurvedic massage.
Raven studied with Tibetan doctors learning the art of KuNye (therapeutic oil massage), fire cupping and treating clients based on their constitutions or Doshas. Their work has been described as intuitive, gentle yet strong, deeply therapeutic and rejuvenating.
As a child, Raven was a student of Waldorf Education. As an adult, they are an avid gardener. They believe that the health of the earth and the health of its people are inherently connected.
Newly relocated to West Philly, Raven balances their time practicing massage along with social and political activism, food justice work, craft projects, studying herbal medicine and doing yoga, circus arts and child care. They looks forward to building their new community and is thrilled to be a part of Six Fishes.
