My Skills

Lynn Harris is a licensed massage therapist in the state of North Carolina. She is certified in Neuromuscular Therapy, Zero Balancing, with advanced training in Craniosacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, and Fascial Strain/Counterstrain. She went to Hawaii where she mastered lomilomi massage.

Lynn began teaching lomilomi massage in 1994, and soon after she taught Neuromuscular Therapy at the NC School for Natural Healing.

Lynn has attended training in Bowen Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Brain Therapy, Continuum Movement, and the Egoscue Method for Pain Management.

Lynn has maintained a private practice since 1980. Below are some of the options you can choose from when you come in to see Lynn for a personalized treatment session:

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE - Great for the human fluid system. Helps with the reduction in edemas, boosts the immune system, and helps to regenerate and detoxify the tissues. This is very light work that carries you to a deep state of relaxation.

These two therapies work in unison together to enhance optimal brain health. Dr. Chikly, who is brilliant, and dedicated to helping humans heal, developed the brain work. This therapy is a must for people who suffer from unresolved migraines, neurological dysfunctions, closed head injuries, foggy brain syndrome, or who just want to think clearly!! Also by working on the brain the whole nervous system is positively affected, and often times neck and back injuries as well as visceral problems are improved. This is very subtle and amazing work.

FASCIAL STRAIN/COUNTERSTRAIN I love doing this technique, as I have been able to accomplish results for my clients which would have otherwise been unattainable. This is magical work, and can be done fully clothed. This technique involves a skilled, passive manipulation of the body’s deep fascial proprioceptors, with the goal of normalizing the fascia surrounding nerves, arteries, veins and the viscera. The already shortened muscles and fascia are further shortened. This removes all internal stress, totally deactivating the pain receptors. As this shortened position is held, local inflammation will decrease as the noxious chemicals are carried away. As a result there is improved flexibility, improved proprioception, normalization of muscle tone, and improved functional performance.

HOT STONE/ESSENTIAL OIL MASSAGE Treat yourself to an amazing session of hot stones, fabulous organic essential oils and massage. You will drop into a deep state of relaxation from using both heat and massage. You must experience this at least once!!

LOMILOMI MASSAGE If you have trouble turning your mind off during a massage, this massage is for you!! Lynn uses her forearms and elbows in spiral motions to dance over the entire body. This massage can be both deep or more superficial, depending on the clients tissue. Lomilomi means to weave love and to weave light.

POSTURAL ALIGNMENT and NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY(NMT). The above two techniques can be combined to facilitate a more permanent release of trigger points. NMT is a very precise and thorough release of individual muscles. Although it can be very deep, the practitioner works within the person's therapeutic zone. Too much pain does not equate with more gain!

Zero Balancing This technique is done with the person clothed, lying on their backs. The client should feel an amazing connection to their expanded self. Once this place is touched and experienced they are able to more easily release stress. The practitioner interfaces with the bones and energy during this profound bodywork.

ESOTERIC HEALING is at the very lightest spectrum of bodywork, as it is actually performed off the body. Some people believe that disease actually begins in our aura. This work balances our organs by contacting them in our aura.
