Meet the Therapist: Ginny Hartnett, LMT

What drove you to this field?

I worked in the fitness industry for many years and took a workshop about fascia. It was this fascination with the fascial system of the body and its relation to movement/lack of movement as well as pain/lack of pain that lead me to pursue Massage Therapy.

What’s your favorite stretch?

I love a good pectoralis minor stretch in a doorway!

What do you do when you’re not busy massaging people?

I enjoy martial arts, dance and visiting with friends and family.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Body Mechanix?

The People! Both staff and clients are so wonderful to work with!

What is your health and wellness philosophy?

Keep moving! Find something you love (dancing, walking the dog, swimming, biking, gardening) and make it part of your schedule. Write it on your calendar, and make it as important as any other appointment!

What’s your spirit animal?

Wolf. Before my daughter went off to college, I bought her a totem necklace carved by a local artist. It made sense to me that my cub would be protected by a Wolf when far from home!
