Arlene Hulva, LMT
Arlene was initially drawn to massage because of its ability to assist in healing the effects of old injuries as well as manage chronic pain. She eventually learned, however, that the effects of regular massage go beyond just physical healing and was therefore motivated to leave her job in the mental health field and go to massage school. She graduated from Cortiva-Muscular Therapy Institute in 2009.
Arlene found the practice of yoga combined with regular massage to be particularly vital in supporting her through the physical, emotional, and hormonal changes that are a natural part of pregnancy. After her first child was born, she was unprepared for the physical, mental, and emotional challenges inherent to the postpartum experience. Furthermore, she found that there was a void of information and support out there to help new mothers grapple with their shifting roles while recovering from pregnancy and childbirth. It has therefore become Arlene’s passion to help women continuously rediscover themselves in all aspects of their lives but especially for those navigating the ever changing landscape of the motherhood journey.
Arlene takes the time and energy needed to tailor each session to fit the client's particular physical and emotional needs. She is trained in Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Swedish Massage, Injury Work and Pre and PostNatal Massage.
