You will learn to transform the way you relate to your body, and what you believe to be possible for yourself, whether it is to bust the myths of aging, or create a new record in athletic performance, or better sleep, or emotional well-being and stress relief.
I’m Rosi Goldsmith, owner of Integration Massage. I support you to reach your health, wellness and well-being goals by activation of the body’s innate healing response, with
- • Ortho-Bionomy®
- • restorative movement exercises
- • mind-body techniques
- • self-care tips to take home
I utilize the gentle myofascial release, reflex points and mindful presence of Ortho-Bionomy® and Chapman’s Neurolymphatic Reflexes, along with posture education and neurological massage. All sessions are individualized to your needs and goals. Whether it is sports injury, too much desk work, a motor vehicle accident, work stress or injury, the focus is to meet you where you are at, and empower you to heal the cause and create wellness.
I have taken advanced coursework in functional neurology to understand the body-brain connection, how massage affects stress, your immune system, thinking, feeling, athletic performance and sleep, and how to treat problem areas. I have been doing research on Parkinson’s and chronic pain healing. I keep updated on the latest evidence of what is effective and will do my best to apply what I find to your particular condition.
At the same time, I access a lifetime of personal recovery from trauma, brain injury (TBI), back, neck and shoulder injury. I know the power of energetic healing. I encourage self-compassion with breath work to integrate body, mind and spirit.

Rosi, the Research Geek
I submitted my first research case report to the Massage Therapy Foundation 2013 Practitioner Case Report Contest, and won Honorable Mention. It’s about 2/3 the way down the page: Case Report on Exploration of Massage, Bodywork and Mind-Body Interventions for Parkinson’s Disease. I submitted my second case report and again won Honorable Mention for Contralateral Treatment of Severe Chronic Shoulder Pain. The abstract will be published online around April of 2015.
