Professional Massage Therapist, Healer, Educator.

Barbara was born for this work!

A natural born healer, Barbara was guided to develop her gift of touch while attending CCMT, a well respected massage school, graduating from the Newington campus in 1994. Barbara launched her career immediately after, working with all manner of injuries while employed at both a chiropractor and physical therapy offices while continuing advanced training in Somatic Education through Upledger Institute and with leading experts in the field of Craniosacral therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Visceral Mobilization & "Listening Techniques".  "In those days I was often the only LMT in the crowd, most being PT's, OT's,  Chiropractors and MD's. I learned to 'speak the medical vernacular' and integrated this into my professional practice." Since those early days, Barbara has honed expert palpation skills that speak the language of the body with her healing hands.

Barbara opened her first healing Center in Milford in 1995 naming it "Body Intelligence", honoring the quality of innate healing that she intimately works with through the healing power of touch. Enjoying a successful practice there for nearly a decade, Barbara sold 'all her worldly goods' including her business in 2004 to pursue her dream of establishing an overnight Healing Retreat Center which she operated on an 1850's farmstead in Vermont and affectionately named "Turtle Pointe Retreat. Barbara returned to CT and in 2011 opened her most recent business and Holistic Center with the main focus of offering Anamcara education to caregivers and healing services to those in palliative care and end of life. To accomplish this goal she created a charitable arm of her Center called the Anam-Care Initiative which is on track to being recognized as a 501c3 organization. 

Barbara is known for her accurate and sensitive touch, working with the cellular memory of the body to clear the impact of old injuries and trauma and for clearing energy blocks that stand in the way of complete healing.  A session with her may best be described as  "Energywork grounded in Anatomy", using an integrative approach and weaving a plethora of modalities.
