About the Practitioner
Nora Mathews, LMT, ABMP Certified Bodyworker.
I am a massage therapist educated at the Cortiva Institute in Boston, MA and licensed to practice in PA. I focus in effective, therapeutic techniques that stimulate the body's natural healing response while targeting your own unique tension patterns.
Techniques that I draw from include Myofascial release, Trigger point, Swedish, Deep Tissue, PNF/Sports Massage, Hydrotherapy and Reflexology. Each appointment is customized to addresses your specific needs— I am also happy to consult with your personal physician or PT to best facilitate your healing process from injury, surgery, or illness.
Many of my clients come to me for pain and tension as a result of work-related stress, chronic pain or illness, and issues with anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide short-term relief but also to help you set and reach your long-term wellness goals.
The name and philosophy of my business, Solas Space, comes from the the Irish Gaelic word for "light." The Rumi quote on my business cards says that "the wound is the place where the light enters you," and I think that it's true: we all have pain, stress, and places where our bodies have held on to old illness or injury. When you finally make the time for much-needed self-care, it invites healing and light into your life!
