I’m MaryAnn, a bodyworker and energy worker… also known as MaryAnn Reynolds, MS, LMT, BCTMB…master of science, licensed massage therapist, board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork.
Welcome to my website.
I offer advanced bodywork sessions in the Austin, Texas, area (and sometimes in Taos NM in the summer).
I also offer free discovery calls, and I teach Self-Treatment for TMJ Issues on Zoom (with video).
I specialize in two types of bodywork: Craniosacral Biodynamics and TMJ Relief. You may be unfamiliar with these bodywork modalities.
Craniosacral Biodynamics is gentle, relaxing bodywork/energy work done from the inside out. It can help with many issues.
TMJ Relief is a modality I developed from training and working in the mouths of those with jaw issues. Sessions focus on relieving tension, pain, and other jaw issues, as well as habit change, if applicable. TMJ sessions include Craniosacral Biodynamics as well as massage techniques.
More information about them is available on their respective pages.
Spring 2023 newsletter is out!
Okay, I got a little silly and included links to a video and lyrics of the song Good Mornin’, Starshine, from the play and film Hair.
It just felt right for spring.
There’s some other good stuff too: savings on a HeartMath sensor to learn to increase your coherence (aka wholeness, presence, well-being), and savings — 30% off — from two suppliers of mail-order supplements.

New skills to share with you!
I’m back from yet more advanced training in Craniosacral Biodynamics in Washington, DC, in March, and I’m itching to practice on my Austin area peeps!
I learned a new skill for working with the spine, assisting vertebrae to find better alignment with their neighboring vertebrae. This helps with back stiffness and pain and can provide some relief for scoliosis. I myself have a bit of scoliosis and noticed greater ease after I received a session. I’ve gotten good feedback from clients who’ve received it too.
I also learned a new skill for improving blood flow in the cranium. I’m calling it Clearing Your Head. As always in these classes, we students practiced on each other, and everyone noticed a difference afterwards, of feeling more present, open, and clear. I noticed my cranial chakras — crown and third eye — beaming strongly.
This technique is good for clearing brain fog, chemo fog, and anesthesia after surgery, for relieving post-COVID symptoms, vascular migraines, loss of smell or taste, and respiratory sinus congestion. In some cases, it may provide relief from tinnitus. It helps with mental clarity.
My teacher says that everyone can benefit from having one of these sessions at least once a year.
There are some contraindications of who should NOT receive this: stroke, brain surgery, recent TBI. Please contact me if you have questions.
What’s the best location for you?
I have two offices. Which works for you — my office in West Lake Hills, on Bee Cave Road near 360/Capital of Texas Highway? Or my office at West Holistic Medicine, 904 West Avenue, in downtown Austin?
See maps for both locations on my Schedule page.
My hours in West Lake, where I’ve worked since 2016, mostly with other craniosacral therapists, are Monday through Thursday, 1:30-6ish, and Fridays, 10-4. Parking is free.
You can schedule sessions at my office in West Lake by clicking the link on my Schedule page.
My downtown hours at West Holistic Medicine, 904 West Avenue, are Monday through Thursday, 9:30-1. It’s an integrative medical clinic with two doctors and several other healers offering alternative treatments.
You don’t have to be a patient of the doctors there to receive alternative treatments.
There are three free parking places at 904 West Avenue. If these are full, you can park on the street and take your chances on not getting ticketed (which are really good, in my experience), or pay for street parking at the meter.
My prices are slightly higher at West Lake.
To schedule sessions with me at West Holistic Medicine, please call 512-814-0148 if you are new there. Existing patients can self-schedule.
