holistic massage therapy
our family is expecting our first new born to arrive any day now! I will be taking maternity leave from all massage and in-person services through the end of 2020. online yoga classes and some virtual sessions will be available until the birth, and resuming a few weeks after. see the online yoga schedule above, or contact me to inquire about scheduling virtual sessions
while I am on leave, I can recommend the therapists at Metta integrative Wellness Center for massage and bodywork. visit www.metta-wellness.com to book an appointment, or click on the link below
This weekly, donation-based offering [community yoga] keeps bringing me more deeply into my body with easeful, mindful deliciousness. If you want a flow taught by a gifted body worker and yogi with an incredible depth of knowledge of the physical and subtle bodies (because who doesn’t??) go to www.mollyfarwell.com to get the Zoom link. Community Flow every Thursday (and Chair Yoga every Tuesday ) at 5:45 EST/3:45MT

Molly’s work is grounded in skillful listening, and is a beautiful balance of depth and patience. As a trauma survivor, I have a hard time receiving massage—specifically deep tissue work—but Molly’s work starts with listening and attuning, and moves towards depth at a pace my body feels safe with. Her deep tissue work feels like a conversation where she’s really listening, rather than bossing the tissue around and putting it in its place. Really high quality work, grounded in compassionate listening.

I am available to schedule virtual sessions:
Mondays | 10am - 6pm
Tuesdays | 10am - 5pm
Wednesdays | 10am - 5pm
Thursdays | 1pm - 5pm
Fridays | 10am - 4pm
As long as social distancing practices are being observed, I will continue to offer what services I am able to offer virtually. Online classes and recordings are priced individually. All one-on-one sessions will be charged at a rate of $1/min. During this time, I am also expanding my Sliding Scale availability. Please let me know if you need to pay a different amount.
I am a Maryland-licensed massage therapist (LMT), and certified practitioner of Integrative Reflexology®, graduate of Potomac Massage Training Institute, in Silver Spring, MD. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT®200) with Yoga Alliance. My training includes over 100 hours of study and practice in trauma-informed care within and beyond the bodywork field. My previous work as an immigration legal assistant inspired a passion for working with survivors of gender-based and domestic violence to re-integrate touch as a safe, nurturing, and empowering experience. I employ a gentle, slow approach to bodywork therapy, which is recommendable for treating persons suffering from stress-related tension and chronic pain. Gentle bodywork practices, including yoga, massage, and other techniques, are gradually becoming recognized as effective treatment options for PTSD and other stress-related pathologies.
My practice seeks to promote social responsibility by encouraging clients with means to support those without, and help the business run with sufficient income. I do not accept tips, but I will gladly receive contributions towards offsetting the cost of free and sliding-scale services. I consistently seek opportunities to promote community education and operate with the highest standards of ethical behavior to create a safe space for people of all backgrounds and genders.
Regarding accessibility, sliding scale fees, and trauma care, I have a strict no-questions-asked policy; though I hope you will find my practice a safe place to share any needs or concerns you might have. I also offer free massages for people of any gender who have suffered from gender-related or intimate partner violence. Please inquire for more information about accessing this program. If you would like to make a donation to contribute to this program, or to gift a massage to a survivor of violence, please see more information here or contact me.
