About Us

Jean Svizzero, B.S., LMT:

Jean explored a broad base of wholistic thought while attaining her Bachelors Degree in Environmental Health through Lesley University.  Bodymind interactions, energetic theory, aromatherapy, and immune system responsiveness all begged for inclusiveness toward healing our environment through healing the individual first.

  She chose to study at Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork, for they insisted that their students learn an energetic system in conjunction with the practice of massage.  Zen Shiatsu
 offered her an energetic model that informed her work, and her life, in ways that she never imagined. It blends stunningly with any modality to ensure a balanced structure for deep transformative work. 

In March of 2017 she began training in MFR (myofascial release) with John Barnes. The first series of seminars exceeded her expectations and she is continuing her training and enjoying how it has enhanced her practice. 

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
