Angela is in her last semester at Great Bay Community College for Massage Therapy. She is beginning her internship with Body Mechanix Massage and is very excited to be here. She’s originally from Ohio and has lived in the New England area for the past 20+ years.
Her son inspired her on her journey in massage. He played high school football and would go through rigorous training when his back and shoulders would consistently bother him. Angela would massage his back and shoulders to help provide relief. One day he said to her, “Mom, you are really good at massage, you should do this for others who play sports.”
This began her journey as a massage therapist…
Angela’s passion lies in sports massage as she’s a fan of physical fitness, wellness, and nutrition. She believes we can all relate to going back to the gym and over doing our workout. She’s worked out intermittently over the years and knows the soreness that comes along with intense workouts. She loves being able to bring relief through her bodywork and stretching techniques to others.
In the future, other modalities she intends to add to her repertoire are craniosacral, Thai massage and cupping. She is very passionate about this career, the art of bodywork and can’t wait to learn more about these modalities in an effort to be able to help others.

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.
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.
