I’m MaryAnn Reynolds, bodyworker… also known as MaryAnn Reynolds, MS, LMT, BCTMB…board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork.
Welcome to my website.
I offer advanced bodywork sessions in the Austin, Texas, area, and also in the summer in Taos, NM.
My Schedule page has links for scheduling sessions that take place in my West Lake Hills office (west of downtown Austin), where I’m available Monday through Thursday 2:30-6:30 pm and Fridays 10-4:30 pm.
I’ve added a location in central Austin
Is central Austin a more convenient location for you than West Lake Hills to receive Biodynamic CST or TMJ Relief?
I offer sessions at West Holistic Medicine, an integrative medical practice located downtown at 904 West Avenue. I have the pleasure of working with my esteemed colleagues Dr. Ashley Maltz, MD (owner), and Jameson James, LAc.
My hours there are Monday through Thursday, 9:30 am-2 pm.
If a central location works better for you, please call West Holistic Medicine to schedule your appointment: 512-814-0148. Prices are the same at both locations.
Back from training with more skills
I’m back from my most recent DC training with more skills in biodynamic craniosacral therapy. I also received some advanced training in nerve defacilitation.
You may not be familiar with the latter, so please bear with my simplified explanation. Think about how it might help you or someone you know who’s suffering, and let me know if you have any questions.
Nerves send signals to and from the brain. When a nerve experiences “too much, too fast,” that overwhelm can cause it to fire too often and too easily.
A facilitated nerve is one that has gotten stuck in this hyperactive state, resulting in issues like chronic pain, muscle tension, and/or anxiety.
These kinds of issues may respond temporarily to various therapies, but the relief doesn’t last because the nervous system hasn’t been directly addressed.
I’m excited to have learned techniques to address facilitated nerves and have been using them in sessions since I returned from DC March 30.
In one Biodynamics session, a client with chronic anxiety went into one of the deepest still points I’ve ever witnessed.
As you may know, still points are turning points when the body pauses and then reorganizes how it regulates itself, restoring healthier function.
That client reported that a big awareness had emerged two days after our session that diminished her chronic anxiety.
It seems likely to me that there’s a connection between the physiological changes from the bodywork and the revelation that “I feel different and better now” working its way into consciousness.
If you are feeling stuck with chronic “anything you don’t want,” please schedule an initial Biodynamic session or get an Intro to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy package. I’d love to do my best to help you find relief.
Craniosacral Therapy packages
Biodynamic CST is a gentle modality that works subtly and cumulatively. It may take a few sessions for you to feel its benefits if you are new to this modality. Sometimes positive changes in physiology take time to work their way into conscious awareness.
I invite new bodywork clients to start with the introductory three-session package.
Then, if you experience benefits to your well-being, I invite you to consider the Recovery Care package of eight sessions, to work with issues like trauma recovery, migraines, anxiety, and many chronic issues.
These packages are discounted by 10% off the cost of single sessions, and customized interest-free payment plans are available on request.
If you’d like to talk with me over the phone before making a commitment, you can schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation at a time when we’re both available.
You can also leave a voicemail any time for 512-507-4184, and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
