Elizabeth Valentine L.M.T. is a Certified Bodyworker/Massage Therapist who practices Somatic Integrative Bodywork, Somatic Coaching. In private practice since 1980, Elizabeth began her practice in France and continues to work with people from all over the world.

Formerly Dean of Faculty Development at the Touch Therapy Institute/Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Elizabeth uses several modalities to address client concerns and goals. The process is creative and designed to effect deep and lasting change in chronic physical and emotional patterns. Equipped with a deep understanding of human anatomy, Elizabeth works with a client to shift their physical form in ways that allows them to sustain changes, move freely and to think/feel differently. When all these aspects of the self are brought into alignment, clients reach new levels of peace, ease, relaxation, and personal power.
