Elizabeth McLindon: Channeling Energy in Gloucester

By Elisha Neubauer

Folks in Gloucester, MA have a helping hand when it comes to getting back to basics. Located in a cozy building on East Main Street is Elizabeth McLindon, LCMT, a healing of a different sort.

McLindon focuses on relaxing both your mind and your body, blending a unique combination of Eastern and Western traditions into one soothing, customized session. She incorporates deep tissue and Swedish massage, trigger point and cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology, qi gong, myofascial release, structural integration, and energy work into her sessions. She also offers pre- and post-natal massage, and travelling chair massages.

"A professional massage can be of benefit in many ways, depending of the needs and goals of the client, whether that is stress reduction, injury recovery, increasing flexibility, pain relief or another issue," McLindon said. "Deep relaxation on a regular basis can help reset cortisol levels, temporarily lower blood pressure and activating one's own healing energies."

McLindon offers a facial toning massage which is designed to relax one's entire inner-self. The massage is a sequential series of massage strokes that affect the facial muscles, along with tightening and toning the neck and upper chest. It is useful for those clients facing side effects from Bell's Palsy, strokes, or facial nerve damage.

"Clients will see a tonal difference in their skin and muscles after the very first treatment," McLindon said.

New to McLindon's lineup is Reiki, a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch. This energy is then used to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

Reiki has been gaining popularity in the alternative healing circles over the years and now is making its way into more mainstream practices, such as massage therapy offices. McLindon uses this in combination with other massage forms or simply delivers an entire session in the practice if the patient requires it.

Cupping massage is another new feature included in McLindon's practice.

While McLindon likes to put an emphasis on relaxation, her primary focus is on injury recovery in addition to deep relaxation and energy healing. She found her way to this practice through her own injury sustained during a car accident. After finding therapeutic massage facilitated her pain relief and recovery, McLindon decided she wanted to share that benefit with others and began her training.
