MACKY IS DEDICATED TO WORKING WITH PEOPLE AND THEIR BODIES WITH AWARENESS BASED THERAPIES TO CREATE SPACE, INSPIRE CHANGE AND EMPOWER INDIVIDUALS.Macky has enjoyed a colorful career in the wellness field in the past 10 years. She grew up spending half her time in a dance studio and the other half in the woods, so her love and interest in the intersection of our form and its function sprouted at an early age. She received a heavy diagnosis of an autoimmune disease as a teenager that required major lifestyle changes and ended up piquing her interest in our bodies on a deeper level of understanding. Macky treated her then mysterious disease with a wide range of interventions including manual and movement therapies that gave her even more expanded appreciation for the modalities.
She attended her first bodywork training, deep tissue massage, in 2011, graduated in 2012 and immediately began practicing. Her ever-deepening yoga practice brought her to pursue a 200-hour yoga teacher training shortly after and followed it up with advanced training in Thai yoga massage, yin yoga, restorative yoga, AcroYoga, handbalancing and anatomy. Macky worked on an undergraduate degree in holistic nutrition and sustainable food systems for several years before making the life changing decision to attend the certification program at Anatomy Trains school of Structural Integration. She graduated in 2018 and spent the next year transitioning her busy massage practice to this new modality while also acquiring her personal training certificate.
Macky is a body nerd at heart and lifelong learner and has additional training in kinesiotaping, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, reiki, visceral manipulation, CranioSacral therapy, Neurovascular Release and structural integration. She continues to practice Structural Integration and host small groups and individuals for strength training in her studio in Westbrook and assists trainings up at Anatomy Trains. When not seeing clients you can find Macky walking her gigantic and slobbery dogs, weeding her garden, tending to her chickens, doing handstands or reading.
