Tatiana McChesney
Tatiana McChesney

Tatiana McChesney is originally from Brazil. She became interested in massage therapy after a trip to Thailand in 2005 where under the supervision of Master Mactherdchai of Chiang Mai and Jonas Westring she studied Thai Massage. In 2009 Tatiana became a licensed massage therapist focusing on Deep Tissue and Therapeutic work. In 2011 Tatiana became certified in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy®. In this technique, the therapist stands on your back – staying balanced by holding bars that are secured to the ceiling – and uses her heels, instep, and toes to apply deep and constant pressure to the back, gluts, hamstrings and calves. It is ideal for people with tight ligaments or those with tense shoulders and hips. Each session is designed based on how the client is feeling and what the needs are.

Rob began practicing massage in 2007 after graduating from New Hampshire Institute for Therapeutic Arts in Bridgton Maine. Rob practices an integrated, intuitive style of massage where various techniques will be applied based on the client’s particular needs each session. The pressure level used during sessions ranges from light to moderately deep, as Rob prefers to use various techniques to get the muscles to relax instead of a heavy amount of pressure whenever possible. He has spent the last 14 years practicing massage while working alongside physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, chiropractors and acupuncturists; which has enriched and broadened his knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. Rob has also completed advanced training in massage techniques to alleviate neck pain, and neck pain/dysfunction sustained as a result of whiplash.
