About Ginnie.

ginnie My two passions in life are massage and bodybuilding. I believe my passion for bodywork arose from my love of weightlifting and competitive bodybuilding.

It all began when, in my mid-forties, I was diagnosed with high cholesterol. To this day, I thank my doctor for recommending that I try exercising and changing my diet, versus simply writing a prescription for a cholesterol-lowering drug. What started as a challenge to get in shape escalated to competitive bodybuilding. After considerable success at the amateur level, at age 49, I won a national competition and earned the title of professional bodybuilder.

In my development as a bodybuilder, my trainer, a champion bodybuilder herself, suggested I try massage to help improve my posture. After experiencing a variety of bodywork therapies, Rolfing, Swedish massage, Trager and Reiki, I realized that I wanted to GIVE massage, as well as receive it.

At age 54, while continuing my current career as a dental hygienist, I enrolled as a part-time student at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, in Newington, Connecticut. Upon graduation, April 30, 2010, I opened my studio.
