Just imagine how good that would feel right…about …now.

Jean Svizzero, B.S., LMT:

Jean embarked upon her career in bodywork while searching for the umbrella to hold the spokes of varied interests. Bodymind explorations, energetic theory, aromatherapy, healthy immune responsiveness and human interaction all begged for inclusiveness. Once she realized that massage encompassed all these venues, the aha moment was upon her. Having received a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Health through Lesley University, she has a broad base of wholistic thought but still needed a creative outlet.  Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork, offered the congruency she had been looking for. Learning Zen Shiatsu in conjunction with therapeutic massage offered her an energetic system  that she could, and has, become proficient in and it informs her work, and her life, in ways never imagined. 

Jean has lived in Brookline Village for over thirty years and raised her daughter here. Travels have taken them across the country and overseas, yet they have always cherished coming back home.  Bodily Kneads came to Jean at a time of crucial life change and she is grateful to be able to offer what she loves here in the community that has been home for so long. In 2012 she co-founded Wellness in the Village, a local collaborative of practitioners, healers and teachers intent on offering health and wellness options to Brookline and surrounding areas.
