Massage Therapy for Wellness:
Treating the Whole Person
Hello! My name is Regina Panetti and I am a massage therapist licensed in New York State. After receiving my Associate's Degree in Massage Therapy from NCCC in Saranac Lake, NY, I spent some time working and growing as a therapist in the spa setting. First in Plattsburgh, NY, and then later in Watertown, NY. I grew up in St. Lawrence County, and my husband and I are very happy with our recent move back to the area. It allows us to raise our 2 children closer to both of our families, and take advantage of the all the Adirondack foothills have to offer!
I truly enjoy helping others feel pampered, but I also have passion for treating specific ailments in more of a clinical setting. Being licensed in NYS as a practical nurse as well, my medical knowledge lends itself well to treating a variety of conditions with massage therapy both safely and appropriately. In particular, I have pursued specialization in massage therapy for pregnant clients. Seeing that there is a need in this area for a practitioner specially trained in providing safe bodywork to this population, I decided to acquire an Advanced Prenatal Massage Certification from the Finger Lakes School of Massage.
I am skilled in Swedish massage for relaxation, hot stone therapy, prenatal massage, reflexology, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue/therapeutic massage. I would describe most of my work as being very integrative; each session is tailored to meet the needs of the client, based on intuition and my knowledge of indicated techniques. My training has included study in Eastern modalities such as Thai and Shiatsu massage (largely based in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, respectively.) I am of the belief that there is a strong body-mind-spirit connection, and I do my best to help my clients find their own balance during treatment sessions.
