Meet Marissa Fratoni, RN-BSN, LMT, RYT 200 Hr

Nurse_Mariss[1]I have enjoyed practicing yoga for about ten years, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when I really devoted myself to the practice. I came to Central Mass Yoga and Wellness in 2010 seeking healing from the depths of depression and found solace at a time when I was in a place of hopelessness. Over time, I started to heal and my “great depression” was a faded memory. Through my own personal practice and completion of the CMYW teacher training in 2013 (which included Yoga Warriors Method™ training), I have developed a greater understanding of the healing powers of yoga and wish to help others find their way onto their own healing path. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal; we simply have to unlock this innate healing power from within. I have studied several styles of yoga based in the Hatha and Ashtanga traditions including vinyasa, power, Iyengar, and Bikram and enjoy bringing elements of these styles into class. In addition to being a yoga teacher, I am a practicing registered nurse at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, as well as the licensed massage therapist based out of CMYW. I am an integrative health practitioner looking forward to guiding you on your own journey to health, happiness, and wellness.

Marissa has also been practicing massage therapy for over a decade. She is a registered nurse, licensed massage therapist, yoga teacher, and holistic health practitioner. “My philosophy is that everyone is designed to heal, we simply have to find our way to the healing path. My goal is to help you do just that.”

Marissa offers Swedish massage techniques, deep tissue therapy, neuromuscular therapy, structural integration, reflexology and trigger point therapy that combine for a specialized, individualized therapeutic massage session. Designed to promote healing and relaxation, Marissa will develop a session geared at acknowledging your own personal health strains and work with you to achieve optimal health.
