Brigitte Rawlings, LMT

My purpose as a massage therapist is to improve body awareness and a better well being, through positive touch. Whether your goal is for relaxation or to help with a more serious injury, I can work with you to achieve your goals.

I received massage training from Potomac Massage Training Institute, Washington, DC in 2000. Other training includes Reflexology,  Myofascial Release, Hot Stone Therapy, Reiki, Raindrop Technique, Fertility Massage, Bodywork for the Childbearing Year, Ayurvedic Bodywork, Active Isolated Stretching and CranioSacral Therapy.

I customize each session based on the client's needs by using various techniques, which may include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Energy work and Stretching. I value each session as a sacred experience, where I am honored to participate in a client's journey toward wholeness.

"If I had to sum it up in a few words, it was total rejuvenation. There was just the right amount of pressure and the hot stones did wonders for my lower back pain. I will definitely get massages from Brigitte on a regular basis and I suggest you do the same."
-R. Saunders

"What keeps me coming to Brigitte is her kind and genuine spirit. She instantly puts you at ease, and makes you feel you’ve known her for years. I have had massages throughout the country and in Europe, and have not found anyone who can match her combination of skill, compassion and gentle energy."
-Eva T. 

"I am happy to have found Brigitte at The Still Point. She is skilled in so many bodywork techniques and blends them seamlessly for an individualized and deeply healing experience; I feel so fortunate to have discovered her and always look forward to my regular appointments as a special treat."
-Penny D.

"I had never had a massage until I got one from Ms. Rawlings. She was very professional and put me at ease for which I think is very important for a first timer. At the time, I was suffering from a bad back and stiff neck from a car accident. After the massage I felt like a totally different person." 
-Rev. Thomasine Wren

"I received a massage from Brigitte about 4-5 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday. In all honesty I can't tell how good the massage was since I was so comfortable I fell asleep. I awoke feeling refreshed and embarrassed that I would fall asleep during such an event. None the less, it was one of the best experiences I had in a long time.If you get the opportunity to get one I recommend it."
-Kennedy

"I went to my first (ever in my life) Deep Tissue Massage with Brigitte.  She is MAGIC. Her energy is AMAZING.  I told her that I had residual pain from a severe calf cramp from over two days ago.  That was all I had to say.  Today my calf is pain free...it's an amazing feeling for anyone who has a charley horse so severe that it knocks you down from full capacity for more than a few days.  I feel completely renewed from head to toe and am especially thrilled about not having any pain in my calf.  But overall my body feels GREAT.  I'm totally hooked on going back to Brigitte for more massages.  Amazingly, she worked a super tender spot out of my calf & she did it without causing any pain.  I still don't know how she did it, but I am thoroughly amazed & I will highly recommend her to anyone who wants to go to the Still Point.  She has super positive energy."
-Kimberly S.

"Brigitte gave me one of, if not THE best massage I have had. I've never had someone seem to know what areas needed more work without my telling them. I told her about my hip pain and jaw pain prior to the massage, but didn't tell her about my right shoulder because I didn't want to overwhelm her with all my problem areas. However, I noticed throughout the massage that she was giving my right shoulder and upper back additional attention - she seemed to be able to feel that it was a trouble spot for me. I also appreciated that she talked to me briefly before we began and certainly made me feel comfortable, but didn't speak throughout the massage. She struck the perfect balance of kind and welcoming, while still being respectful of the fact that this was a time that I'd prefer to be quiet.
-R. Collins

"For those who like deep-tissue massage, Brigitte Rawlings is a master at reading the body to provide the perfect pressure in a quiet, near-wordless treatment."
-Washingtonian Magazine February 2013

"Brigitte gave me one of the best massages that I have had. I felt comfortable, her approach was right on and I felt like a "new" woman when I left."
-M.S.
