Chantel C. Lucier
Certified Massage Therapist, Reflexologist and Reiki Master
Board Certified Reflexologist: ARCB#B01213
Chantel’s massage sessions have an integrative approach which utilize gentle techniques, PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation), myofacial trigger point work, deep tissue, and sports massage. Clients can choose to do a session that focuses on one modality or incorporates massage, reflexology, and reiki. Massage focuses on the exterior structures of the body, reflexology addresses organs, glands, and systems, and reiki works with the electro-magnetic field on and around the body. By incorporating all methods, we create a session that works from the more visceral organs on out.
She received her education from San Francisco School of Massage, Calistoga Massage Therapy School, and the Open Center in New York City. She is a reiki master who trained with Reiki Arts Continuum, Brooklyn Classical Reiki Center, & The International Center for Reiki. Chantel has acquired continuing education of 70 classroom hours in the science-based Manzanares Method™ of Reflexology (MMR) developed by Dr. Jesus Manzanares, M.D and training in the MMR Press and Slide Technique™, research principles, protocols and MMR Foot Reflexology Mapping, including 16 hours of training in specialty protocols for chronic pain syndromes developed and taught by Dr. Manzanares. She has also studied with Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson, the creator of Cranio-Sacral Therapy in Reflexology, Peter Lund Frandsen & Dorthe Krogsgaard of Touchpoint in Refleoxlogy & the Immune System, and Wendy Coad for Hand Reflexology Techniques. She continues to deepen her massage, reflexology and reiki practice with further study in related modalities.
Chantel has been giving sessions and teaching workshops in self-care since 2007. Her ongoing goal is to teach people how to care for themselves using reflexology. She has been featured in various articles, videos and blogs on self-healing and DIY techniques in reflexology including Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP, Jill Urban's Wellness Report on NY1, Organic Spa Magazine, Well & Good and Howcast's 50+ DIY videoson reflexology.
