Eva Shpak, LMT
I'm a licensed massage therapist based in Washington, DC. I am also a registered massage practitioner in Maryland.My work combines nurturing touch with focused muscle tension release. In our sessions, I create a judgment-free space where all aspects of your identity are welcomed and where we will collaborate to create a session that meets your evolving needs.Start to finish, I listen to you and am curious about what I hear through your language and your body.More about me:
I am currently a graduate student in clinical mental health counseling and am pursuing a focus in somatics (or, the brain-body connection). I have been a licensed massage therapist since July 2019.
Please provide 24 hours' notice of cancellation. I understand if something pops up and you need to cancel last minute! Please cancel your session at any point if you are feeling sick or at the start of an illness. Massage can potentially increase the spread of a cold or flu in your body and put the therapist in danger of catching it. Please cancel your session if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have had exposure to someone with Covid-19.COVID-19 Protocols:
I require that all clients wear a mask (I recommend wearing a surgical mask, KN-95 or N-95, if possible). I can provide a surgical mask if you do not have a mask when you arrive. I will be wearing a K9-95 mask during all sessions, and have a HEPPA air filter on during and after each session. I will reschedule our session if I think I have had a COVID-19 exposure and will do my best to have safe practices outside of sessions. If you feel any COVID-19 symptoms (headache, runny nose, itchy throat, cough, diarrhea, loss of smell or taste, fever) I recommend you take a rapid test (if available), a PCR test, and reschedule our appointment.Contact me:
I have apprenticed at Freed Bodyworks, a radically inclusive holistic wellness center in Capitol Hill, Washington DC. Through this experience, I connected with and learned from so many talented massage therapists. I am more than happy to send recommendations for other trauma-informed, Trans & queer affirming bodywork practitioners in the DC area (ie. other LMTs, acupuncturists, physical therapists, energy workers +more!)
I've been trained by the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI) in Swedish (broad and comforting strokes) and deep tissue (focused muscle tension relief) massage. I use a variety of influences from other modalities, including biodynamic craniosacral therapy, Trager, and myofascial release.60-Minute Massage: $100
