About Us

In 1987, I had such bad neck and shoulder pain; I couldn't turn Janice Schwartz Fairfield CT Massage Therapymy head to drive to Newington for massage classes.  The people I car pooled with had to take over when it was my turn to drive. I wore a neck brace and had headaches every day.

This wasn't what I had in mind when I started classes at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy. I wanted to help people, not be the one who needed help. I had a stressful schedule, some personal stress and I lived in a house full of mold. I was exhausted and couldn't sleep. Keeping up with my studies and work was a huge challenge.

I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The rheumatologist said I would have to take Xanax, an addictive anti-depressant, for the rest of my life to manage the symptoms. I took one. Then I came to my senses. I knew there had to be a better way.

I read everything I could get my hands on about health and nutrition. I changed my diet drastically. I took supplements to support my immune system and undo some of the damage caused by the mold. I got lots of massage, practiced relaxation techniques and saw a homeopathic physician.I was finally able to get some sleep. My pain and headaches disappeared as long as I was faithful to my regimen.

In a profession where the average career lasts six years, I have been in practice for 20. I have many techniques to draw from but I don’t hesitate to refer to other practitioners when massage alone might not do the job.

When I get to know your body, I can get right down to business without having to search for your problem spots. We can establish an ongoing plan that builds improvement into each session.

It's important to consider diet, lifestyle, and dysfunctional body mechanics when we search for the causes of your pain or stress. Knowledge is power and I believe my clients should be powerful.
