Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)
Dancing Freedom Facilitator
“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
My journey to happiness includes honoring my body. So many things about our culture encourage us to take leave, and abandon the messages of our body to "get ahead".
I hope to be a supportive, listening practitioner on your journey to wellness... whatever your tools on the journey may be!

As a Yoga Teacher Miriam teaches through the eyes of Yoga Therapy; your practice should ideally reflect your unique body-type, age, and state of health. Yoga is an integral system of postures, breathwork, mantra, and meditation, and can be adapted for EveryBody. Additionally, Miriam has an affinity for yoga for womb health; at menarche, pregnancy, postnatal, menopause, and throughout a woman's menstruating years.
As a Dance Facilitator, Miriam teaches Dancing Freedom™: a movement practice that leaves you feeling fully alive, connected, and delighted. Miriam has studied a number of styles of Conscious Dance Practices, learning what brings a deep connection with herself and others. She continues returning to this practice as a primary vehicle to release tension, welcome body wisdom, and engage in life with more physical and emotional ease. Learn more>

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
"Miriam is such a great listener, she puts her heart into everything she does, she has this way of allowing you to just be, non-judgemental, and very open to understand how she can make you feel good, as you were meant to be. The massage has been great, amazing firm pressure (I love pressure, and specifically mentioned it) and knowledge of muscles, and how they all connect. I felt fully whole again, as Miriam's practice addressed the body in it's totality."
"Miriam is very knowledgeable with a great understanding of anatomy. I truly appreciate her unique therapeutic approach that provides not only relaxation but also pain relief. In the past, I used massage therapy infrequently, since meeting Mariam I am planning on using her services regularly"
"As a long-time appreciator of bodywork styles and practitioners, I can say that Miriam Dowd stands out as one of my favorites. From the beginning, she has brought such a joyful curiosity and passion to the work, with a natural instinct and empathy that brings her to the heart of the matter quickly. As her knowledge and experience have deepened, her ability to detect issues and effect real change in my own physical challenges has expanded too. She combines disciplines to good effect: I'm particularly fond of her Thai Massage work, which I had not previously experienced."
