Lorraine Rao, RMP, is a graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute in Washington, D.C. She has been a professional massage practitioner for three years and is certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork as well as the State of Maryland Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Lorraine uses both Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage techniques that facilitate whole-body relaxation and support health and healing. She has a special expertise in issues surrounding the back, neck and shoulders – areas of the body that are highly vulnerable to stress from everyday activities (such as driving or working on the computer) as well as to acute injury. Lorraine understands how relaxation and massage can help people achieve other important health goals, and has helped clients incorporate massage into a variety of their goals, including pain management, weight management, healthy aging, emotional wellness, and stress reduction. Most important to Lorraine’s practice is putting clients truly at ease and listening attentively to their needs and their bodies’ stories.
