Linda Schreiber, LMsT is a colleague at High Mesa Healing CenterLinda Schreiber, LMsT, comes to us from the Baltimore/Washington DC area, where she was a 1993 graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage, took many hours of continuing education in the field, and operated a full time massage practice. Healing Touch, Therapeutic Touch, Pranic Healing, Reflexology, Craniosacral, and Lomi Lomi are just some of the techniques she has integrated into what she likes to call her “bodywork dance”.

A massage under Linda’s skilled hands is an accumulation of her education and experience that brings relief from stress or pain, relaxation, and a sense of over-all well being. Her intuitive approach along with extensive study, has allowed her to be helpful to clients dealing with the symptoms of stress, migraines, depression, knee surgeries, and even more serious dis-ease.

Massage has become a complementary therapy to medical conditions including arthritis, chronic and temporary pain, circulatory problems, headaches, tmj, and as rehabilitation for sports injuries.

Contact Linda at nina1559@hotmail.com or by calling 575-336-2841, or HMHC at 575-336-7777.
