Meet Molly

Top Massage / Reiki Practitioner

in Chicago

As a massage therapist, Reiki Master 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 Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki Master Teacher. 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.

Molly is committed to her own ongoing education, including but not limited to formal trainings. Here are some of the highlights.

What Clients Are Saying

Benito S.

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.
