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.

Once she realized that massage encompassed all these venues, the aha moment was upon her.  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. Learning 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 at any time to ensure a balanced structure for deep transformative work when it occurs. 

As of 2017 she has been receiving training in MFR (myofascial release) with John Barnes.  Her first series of seminars exceeded her expectations, and the following seminars just clarified her commitment to continue learning this work to bring to her clients. What spoke most eloquently to her were the results which her clients had with the new (for her) approach. 

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.
She continues to be curious and adventurous in her work and her life. 


 To create something new, to grow, takes a certain amount of stress. Stress has it’s purpose, yet respite is necessary for optimal function.  Stress and trauma are both meant to be temporary measures to  assist. Yet the body mind sometimes sometimes holds on to these modes long after their task is complete. 

Together we will create:

  • A customized session that meets your needs
  • A deepened state of relaxation so the body can release tension and be more at ease
  • More balance in your energetic integrity to support physiological function and  organ systems
  • Awareness of compensating patterns that may have resulted from past injuries
  • A place of acceptance and or recognition in regard to what is occuring in your life
Myofascial release will help contracted muscles elongate themselves without setting up an antagonist/protagonist relationship within the body. That's part of what makes this bodywork so effective. Familiar lines of movement can hide compensating patterns and techniques like rebounding and unwinding allows the body to spontaneously move beyond limitations of tensions long held.
Just imagine how good that would feel right…about …now.

You will come away with-
  • A greater sense of well being 
  • More resiliency in body/mind.
  • A deeper acceptance of what is and ease in traversing through it.
  • More balanced immune function
  • Aahhhhhhh………. Relief.
