Liliana, a clinical massage therapist, specializes in assessing and treating soft tissue injury through orthopedic massage and Active Release Technique. She began her massage career shortly after completing a degree in Marketing at Emerson College.
Liliana has worked with members of the Boston Ballet, Boston Symphony Orchestra and the NBA. Her work incorporates myo-fascial release, assisted stretching, and strengthening exercises to re-pattern muscular imbalances, and focuses on healing acute and chronic pain. Some people who have sought her out are competitive and recreational athletes, triathletes, top performance artists, and people dealing with repetitive and sports injuries.
An athlete herself, Liliana has studied movement in various forms including martial arts, aerial circus arts, Pilates, triathlons, and weight training. She incorporates movement into the healing process as a means to new discovery and growth. Interested in working with athletes, she pursued an advanced certification in deep tissue therapy and orthopedic massage. A nagging injury that was effectively treated by Active Release Technique inspired her to certify in the technique herself.
She has also instructed deep tissue and self-massage courses at MIT, Cortiva – Muscular Therapy Institute Boston, Massage Institute of New England and CCAE (Cambridge Center for Adult Education).
