Meet Molly

Top Massage / Reiki Practitioner

in Chicago
Molly 6

As a massage therapist, Reiki practitioner & teacher, and certified Forrest Yoga teacher, I am honored and humbled to serve as a facilitator and witness of my clients’ and students’ healing processes. I believe that embodiment is one of the greatest gifts of bodywork, as it leads to healing at our deepest – and often most neglected – levels.


About Me

My Education and Experience

I graduated valedictorian in 2012 from the Soma Institute National School of Clinical Massage Therapy, the leading massage school in Chicago and the only school in the U.S. to offer a diploma in clinical massage therapy. I am also a Level 4 (Master Teacher Level) Reiki practitioner. Reiki is a powerful energy-based holistic healing system that relieves stress and boosts the immune system; it also helps to alleviate pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD and other emotional and physical ailments.

I am a co-founder of the Midwest Reiki Community, as well as an active partner with The Breathe Network, which connects survivors of sexual violence to trauma-informed, sliding-scale, holistic healing arts practitioners.

I have provided massage and Reiki at a number of events and venues, including the Chicago Marathon, the AIDS Ride, the Mental Health America of Illinois’ Mental Health & Wellness Fair, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and the Maria Shelter for homeless women and children.

Prior to studying massage and Reiki, I worked for over a decade in community-based research with underserved communities, at the University of Chicago School of Social Services Administration and with Harvard School of Public Health faculty. Prior to that I served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic from 2003 to 2005. I hold a B.A. in Organizational Studies and a Master of Public Health, both from the University of Michigan. I am also an avid beach volleyball player, dedicated student of Forrest yoga, aspiring writer and former marathoner and triathlete. Reiki, yoga and meditation are my medication.


What Clients Are Saying

As a runner,… Molly has helped me tremendously. However, it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I had the privilege to have a Reiki  session with Molly. If you haven’t had that experience yet, you owe it to yourself. It can be really transformative... Molly is a very talented Reiki practitioner who is wholeheartedly dedicated to practice it as a way to benefit people.
