Birgit Franckenstien

Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)

Growing up as the daughter of a pharmacist in Germany, from a young age Birgit had always felt more drawn to alternative healing methods, such as Homeopathy and Anthroposophic/Holistic Medicine. She was absolutely fascinated by that cabinet of homeopathic medicines in her fathers pharmacy, with the tiny pearls and tinctures with potencies so high that there were no traces of the actual substances left, and yet they were such strong medications . . .

 

Traveling a lot, and having fallen in love with America, Birgit immigrated to Bradenton with her family in August of 1999. More than a decade later, after graduating from the massage program at MTI in Bradenton as a ‘late bloomer’ at age 59 and a life full of many different professional experiences, Birgit had finally found her true calling. She continued her massage education with Don McCann, founder of Structural Energetic Therapy®, and her work is based on the deep tissue principles and the healing power of SET®. In her world, compassionate human touch has healing propensity all by itself; add to that the understanding of Reiki, Reconnective Healing®, Quantum Touch®, and other energetic healing principles, and you know why you leave your therapeutic massage session feeling relieved, energized and somehow ‘new’.

 

Any time you have physical discomfort of any kind, whether you call it emotional, or physical pain within your body, it always, always means the same thing: “I have a desire that is summoning Energy, but I have a belief that is not allowing[,] so I’ve created resistance in my body.” The solution, every single time, to the releasing of discomfort or pain — is the relaxation and the reaching for the feeling of relief.”—Abraham, Excerpted from the workshop: Kansas City, MO on August 29, 1999
