Movement has changed the way Mat approaches bodywork. Feeling your body properly aligned and moving naturally without any discomfort is a joy that everybody should be able to experience.

He has worked in multiple atmospheres in the massage field, such as spas, fitness studios, and running his own practice.
Mat knows that every body is different and customizes each session to meet you where you are on your journey to better health. He uses a blend of Deep Tissue, Swedish, Acupressure, and Sports massage techniques.

Jennifer Bearse - Pilates Instructor
Born and raised in Massachusetts, outdoor sports and her love to challenge herself physically have shaped Jennifer's complete devotion and love for exercise and healthy living. After suffering from a debilitating hip and back injury in 2008, Jennifer discovered Pilates and soon thereafter delved into the rigorous 500+hour teaching certification through Balanced Body University. Since 2009, Jennifer has inspired, healed and educated both individuals and groups using the Pilates Method.
Jennifer is an avid athlete with an extensive background in a multitude of athletic disciplines including: CrossFit, triathlons, cycling, running, weight training, skiing, hiking, backpacking, yoga, and the Brazilian martial art Capoeira. Jennifer is a multi-time triathlon finisher, and an Ironman Triathlete, and has competed in all types of endurance events, including long and short course triathlons, duathlons, century bike rides, and multiple half marathons and 10k running races.
Jennifer is currently enjoying increasing her CrossFit skills and abilities, and has been focused on combining the tenants of CrossFit with her knowledge of core strength and body awareness. It has inspired Jennifer to see the power of the Pilates method in enhancing her abilities as a CrossFit athlete, and has reinvigorated her commitment to inspiring people to push themselves harder and transform their bodies, mentally and physically, through the Pilates Method and beyond.
Jennifer comes to the Pilates Method from the perspective of an athlete and someone who has suffered from chronic pain. She herself has experienced the benefits of using Pilates to rehabilitate her body and become pain-free, while at the same time experiencing its’ benefits as a tool for creating a strong, flexible, and lean body. Jennifer's goal when working with clients is to help clients to use all of the elements of the Pilates Method in their daily lives and in other activities, so that they can prevent future injuries and move with intelligence and total body awareness, no matter what their athletic or fitness goals are.
