Megan is not just a wonderful bodyworker, she offers medicine for the soul. Her sessions are never cookie cutter. She reaches deep within, bringing her vast expertise, imagination and diverse training to support and encourage ease of movement—and she does this with compassion, encouragement and joy. Along with the tangible results of improved alignment and moving with more ease, I often experience a meditative state, tapping into the exquisiteness of life and leaving feeling as if I have encountered myself anew.

I have been an enthusiastic client of Megan for over 10 years, starting with Pilates, then switching to Gyrotonic, and often had bodywork sessions as well. She has made a huge difference in my body and mind, and taught me to have a much better awareness of my body in relation to the surrounding space. Being affected by scoliosis, her training and expertise has also been quite effective in improving my posture and at the same time strengthening my back. The training with Megan doesn't finish at the end of the session, but is carried out in my daily life in all my activities. It has never become a routine exercise, every session can be a different experience and opportunity to better understand and improve your physical self. I highly value her dedication and genuine effort to improve your well being, and she has definitely succeeded with me.

My sessions with Megan are powerfully healing. Megan's combination of bodywork and processing through stories, metaphors and visual imagery helps me connect to a deeper intelligence in myself. Recently, she helped me see and feel the connection between my physical discomfort and the emotional stress that was going on in my work and family life. With Megan tapping into what was going on and helping me shift my perspective, she was able to shift the energy in my body and in my situation. All of my bodywork session with Megan are wonderfully healing, insightful and transformative. I highly recommend her work to everyone!

Megan's work is brilliant. I began seeing her a few years to change a lifetime of poor alignment and reduce my longstanding back and neck pain. She is gifted with a brilliant analytical eye and offers an extensive array of knowledge, skills and talent in movement education and bodywork. Megan is highly intuitive and at the start of each session is able to tune into my body and psyche in an incredibly accurate way, discerning which part of my body needs work and attention at that time. She is kind, gentle, compassionate, incredibly patient, creative and deeply committed to my wellbeing and goals and I trust her completely with my body (my body loves her work!).
Her wide variety of exercises have supported my newly developing alignment and movement patterns, greatly reduced my pain and helped me de-stress when life has gotten hectic. Our work together has also helped lead me to insights about some of the psychological and emotional functions in my habitual movement patters. Megan has both encouraged and helped me take risks to explore new options for ways of moving and being in relation to others, which as a psychotherapist I value immensely.
Megan is also a fantastic healer who has reduced my pain through her combination of gentle hands-on and energetic bodywork. Often I have left my session with Megan incredibly restored with a calmer mind and feeling happily embodied. She is a true healer whom you'd be fortunate to be able to work with!

My bodywork treatments with Megan came at a time in my life when I was contemplating a daunting change which had left me feeling overwhelmed, scattered and weary. I was hoping to achieve a sense of calm & centeredness from my sessions—which did occur—but most notably, what I experienced was a deep and unexpected sense of JOY. Suddenly I was able to see my position and the decisions I had to make from a whole new & joyous perspective. What was set to be a strife-ridden period of my life, became instead an exciting and wonderful journey. I will be forever grateful to Megan and her amazing healing energy.

I first started training in Gyrotonic with Megan about one and a half years ago. At the time, I was suffering from unbelievable low back and sciatic pain. I was having trouble sleep and I was taking very strong anti-inflammatories and nerve pain blockers with mixed results. I also have scoliosis and I have a rod in my mid thoracic to lumbar spine.
After my first few session with Megan, I proclaimed her a "witch" in the best sense of the word: just by watching me walk in the room or by placing her hands on my body, she knew what was happening in my body and knew what exercises I needed to do to correct my issues.
More time than I can count she has manipulated my alignment by making slight adjustments that have made my muscles work a little bit harder and build their strength. I have worked with many "trainers" over the years and Megan is much more than that.
Megan is an extremely gifted bodyworker. She is caring and dedicated to helping her clients achieve their personal goals for their body. I no longer take any prescription pain medication, I sleep better and as a result I have more energy. I have even gone back to martial arts.

I love Megan's work. She combines her knowledge of human physiology with the deep intuition of her heart. Several weeks ago I made an appointment because I had a severe muscle spasm in my neck. As she began to move my head and neck into different positions, I felt the pain and discomfort melting away and I was able to move my head and neck much more freely—more than I had experienced in weeks! Afterwards, my neck spasm was gone and I felt a deeper peace than I had felt in a long time.
Megan has a unique, intuitive approach to bodywork and movement. She has an enormous capacity to hold sacred space while attending to her clients. Her powerful insight that softly shares support one's sense of safety, comfort and willingness to move deeper in the a healing experience. Bodywork with Megan fully engages the body, mind and spirit. After each session with Megan, I feel deeply integrated with a sense of peace and deep connection to myself.

I was suffering from a long-standing, painful sciatic nerve condition when Megan was recommended to me. After a series of Gyrotonic and rehabilitative exercises and bodywork sessions, I regained full mobility and ease of movement. My balance is better, my core is stronger and my alignment is improved. I am indebted to Megan and applaud her commitment, knowledge, experience and insight–GRANDE.

Megan's work is deeply sensitive with a perfect mix of skill and intuition. Each session with her is completely rejuvenating and the effects last long afterward. After a debilitating round of shingles, sessions with Megan have brought back range of motion to areas of deep nerve and tissue aggravation. Her work has also greatly contributed to restoring and strengthening my immune system, increasing my range of motion, and easing my emotional distress. I highly recommend Megan's healing touch to everyone.

During my pregnancy, Polarity Therapy with Megan was the primary healing modality I enjoyed on a regular basis to keep my energy in balance. Megan's ability to listen to my subtle energetic needs–and that of my growing little one–and fine tune us both, set me at ease and allowed me to be energetically available for my own patients. A tremendous support during times of change, highly recommended.
— Joy Oriol, Acupuncturist
I've loved working with Megan. Not only has she helped me physically but she's very accepting of people and their differences, and also wonderfully open about the connection between mind, body, and emotions and giving credence to the fact that they're connected. She's fantastic at what she does, and also fun to be around in the process.

Megan is one of the most gifted and dedicated teachers I have worked with. Focused, passionate and always encouraging, I find myself looking forward to our weekly sessions. Under her tutelage, I have a gained more flexibility, better core strength and better overall body awareness. She was instrumental in helping me regain my strength after undergoing a C-section to deliver my son 4 years ago.

All sorts of longstanding, even life-long issues I was unaware of or did not know how to address are now clearly on my radar. I stand straighter–and when I don't, at least I know it, which is no small improvement. I've learned to engage my abdomen and am less likely to stress or injure my back as a result. My Gyrotonic sessions with Megan have been terrific.
— Gustavo Suarez, New York City
Megan is a wonderful teacher because she’s sensitive to the individual needs of her clients. I have herniated disks in my upper back accompanied by arthritis in my shoulders and knee joints. I learned from Megan how to release the tension in my upper back, and how to initiate leg movements in my ankle and hip joints. As a result, I walk more easily.
