Bodywork with Nasrene
Hello, I’m Nasrene (PA LN# MSG012055)! I am a queer, trans, Iranian and white, musician, artist, and educator here in Lenapehoking territory also known as the Philadelphia area. I began formal bodywork training in 2013 at East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland Oregon, learning a variety of techniques and modalities. My areas of skill include deep tissue techniques, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular exercises, swedish massage, pre-natal and post-natal massage, acute injury recovery, chronic pain management, anxiety and stress management, etc.
I have supported clients who have PTSD/C-PTSD, birth injuries, congenital issues, are recovering from gender affirming/other surgeries, have chronic illnesses, mobility issues, TMJD, trauma due to sexual and physical violence, and more.
I also educate the next generation of massage therapists at Philadelphia School of Massage and Bodywork, in subjects such as anatomy and physiology, Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, ethics, prenatal massage, hydrotherapy, and my NCBTMB CE certified, "Trans and Gender Diversity in Massage Therapy".
Along with massage, I have deeply studied herbal and natural medicine for over 15 years, gaining three certificates in herbal practice.
I hold a certificate in emergency medicine as an EMT-B in the state of Pennsylvania as well.
