Because people have responded so positively to my offer of pay-what-you-wish bodywork, I'm extending it indefinitely. Select any offering listed below and pay what you wish. To read more about how this works, here's a blog post I wrote. 

Scroll down to select services and make an appointment. The list of services is a convenient guideline. They can be combined and applied as needed. For instance, a craniosacral session can include work on the hands or feet, if you need it there. Ask for what you need.

Brief Bio: MaryAnn Reynolds, MS, LMT, NCTMB, after working in publishing, journalism, and technology for years, learned Reiki and used it on a gifted healer/friend who was injured. He told her the next day, "You need to get a license to touch people." Taking that as a sign of a gift worth developing, she attended the well-regarded Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage in Austin, TX, where she learned Swedish, deep, sports, prenatal, Shiatsu, and integrative massage. 

After getting licensed, she began training in craniosacral therapy, a gentle, light-touch type of bodywork, with Ryan Hallford of Southlake, TX, in both classical and biodynamic craniosacral therapy. She also offers an effective treatment for relief of jaw pain. 

Because some clients prefer deep, deep pressure, and MaryAnn is only about 5' tall and 120 pounds, she got trained and certified in Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy, in which she holds onto overhead bars to deliver pressure up to her full body weight with her feet, as well as in Ashi-Thai (compressions with stretches, similar to passive yoga). MaryAnn did her training in San Antonio with Jeni Spring. She is listed on the national Graduates Directory

She continues to learn and improve her skills, combining modalities in her integrative massages, her tension-busting Back Shoulders Neck Head sessions, and as designed by creative clients. 

MaryAnn aims to be an all-around healer and teacher, able to draw on her experience, curiosity, and Reiki, NLP, and yoga teacher training to spread peaceful, embodied living.  

Peripheral walking lessons are also available. Please contact MaryAnn to set one up. 

MaryAnn works part-time for Seton Cove, a spirituality center affiliated with Seton Hospitals in the Austin area, where she offers post-natal massage to new mamas, chair massage to Seton staff, and table massage to anyone who seeks it. She loves the ideas of alternative medicine co-existing with mainstream medicine and touch being considered vital spiritually. 

MaryAnn is a member of the Associated Massage and Bodywork Professionals (ABMP) and is nationally certified in massage and bodywork (NCTMB). Visit her website and blog at The Well: bodymindheartspirit

  • Heeling Foot Massage

    Sometimes a good foot massage is exactly what you need. No need to get undressed, very little lubricant is needed, plus the deep relaxation affects the entire body, so you may leave feeling as if you've had a full body massage. I draw on my training in reflexology, anatomy, trigger point therapy, Swedish massage, stretching, acupressure, and more, including Ashiatsu foot work if you want a lot of pressure.
  • Back, Shoulders, Neck, Head

    Where do you carry tension? Depending on the amount of time you choose and your body's needs, these sessions focus just where you need it most: back, shoulders, neck, and/or head, utilizing Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretches, acupressure, craniosacral work, lymphatic drainage, scalp and/or face massage. Great for aching backs, tight shoulders, stiff or sore necks, tension headaches. You undress only the areas being worked on, with draping provided.
  • Nervous System Reset: Integrative Massage and Variations

    These full-body sessions work profoundly on the circulatory, lymphatic, musculo-skeletal, energetic, and nervous systems. From a foundation of Swedish massage, sessions include an intuitive integration of other bodywork modalities such as body mobilization techniques, stretches, acupressure, deep massage, trigger point release, lymphatic drainage, reflexology,  myofascial release, and craniosacral therapy. You leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and more present in your body. Longer sessions include abdominal and facial massage if desired. 

    Variations include vigorous sports massage with stretches and percussion, prenatal (side-lying) massage, and hot stones massage. 

    You undress in privacy, and draping is used to cover all but the area being worked on.  
  • Relief from TMJ Pain

    For those with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, such as jaw pain, tightness, clenching, grinding, clicking, popping, etc. The treatment includes an assessment of jaw range-of-motion, massage of key external and internal muscles, and internal and external craniosacral work. Please schedule 90 minutes for your first session, then schedule follow-ups as needed. You remain dressed for these sessions. 
  • Craniosacral Therapy for Enhanced Well-Being

    These sessions intuitively combine biomechanical and biodynamic craniosacral work to help you become more relaxed and centered and to strengthen your innate healing capacity. In these meditation-like, gentle-touch sessions, you may experience releases of tensions, warmth, unwinding, blossoming, congruency, and a deeper sense of being fully present and centered in your body. You remain dressed for these sessions.
  • Sole-ful Ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai Barefoot Massage

    Using long, flow-y strokes, Ashiatsu barefoot massage DEEPLY refreshes and detoxifies your body, releases and prevents trigger points, loosens adhesions, and invites spontaneous spinal adjustments. I control the pressure from a Swedish-like “light” up to my full body-weight "deep". You undress in privacy, with draping used to cover parts not being worked on. Delicious Ashi-Thai compressions and stretches included! 


    Ashi-Thai standalone sessions are done with you fully clothed in loose or stretchy garments. The 30-minute session is great for a lunch break or quick energy pick-me-up.
