Megan Merrow LMT began her journey to understanding bodies in motion as a dance student. Growing up in a dance studio, she became familiar with the ways bodies adapt to creative activity, intense training, and especially the importance of recovery. She joined the International Association for Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS), and began her studies in Human Performance and Exercise Science to continue investigating the three-dimensional evidence-based approach to keeping bodies in motion for a longer, stronger, healthier life. With 15 years of experience as a dance educator, she has seen the benefits in training dancers with a strong foundation of optimal movement patterns, body awareness and autonomy, and a consistent wellness practice. Becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist has given her the tools to incorporate manual therapy techniques to optimize the body for movement and recovery, and she found her passion in helping dancers feel better as they move better. Her bodywork incorporates concepts from Functional Movement and Neuromuscular ReEducation through deep tissue massage and stretching therapy, combined with her formal education in biomechanics, nutrition, and resistive exercise. She takes on her bodywork sessions with the same investigative nature as her academic research work: using a detailed approach to help each dancer thrive as they move uniquely in this world!
