Abby Brunt, LMT
Abby Brunt has been a licensed massage therapist for ten years. While more than capable of performing deep tissue or Swedish massages, she’s most passionate about doing area specific work on the myofascial structure (the web of connective tissue that surrounds each muscle fiber and comes together to form the tendons that attach to the bones). Releasing restrictions within the myofascial web helps to reduce pain, increase joint mobility and rebalance posture. Abby also has received certification in SASTM or sound assisted soft tissue mobilization, which helps to break up fibrotic areas in the fascia, which can be caused by things like repetitive stress injuries or post-surgical scarring. Whatever the modality, Abby enjoys being able to help people feel and function better in their daily lives.
In 2009 Abby finished her massage therapy training at the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork in Salem, MA. She is a member of ABMP, the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals and she also holds a BA in History and English from Gordon College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Old Dominion University.
