Ginny Hartnett, LMT

Ginny was born and raised on the South Shore of Massachusetts, went to college at the University of New Hampshire and settled in Exeter, NH. Although she has traveled many wonderful places for visits, New England will always be her home.

Ginny grew up playing tennis, windsurfing, skiing and scuba diving. Later, she added martial arts and dance to her list of hobbies and is currently enjoying the challenges Brazilian JuJitsu has to offer.

As a fitness instructor and personal trainer, Ginny had the opportunity to take a workshop on fascia and it’s role in movement and movement disorders in the body. Fascinated, she was compelled to understand the fascial system more completely, enrolling in Great Bay Community College’s Massage Therapy program just four months later.

Every body is affected by daily life habits, occupation, posture and environment. When there is balance in the body’s structure, there can be ease and efficiency of movement and breath. When there is imbalance, it can echo through the body disrupting anything from sports performance to activities of daily living. Ginny is thrilled to use her skills to help people of all ages reach a state of balance and ease.

It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders

Sports Massage:

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.

Pre-Natal:

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).

In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Relaxation:

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
