Specializing in Massage Therapy for Arthritis, Anxiety & Depression, Autoimmune Disorders
Licensed Skin Care Therapist and Certified Reflexologist


Holly is the Owner and founder of Everything Zen Massage which she opened in 2009. Holly has been practicing locally since 2002, working in some of the area's top destination spas, followed by working at a local acupuncture clinic. It was there that she gained an incredible knowledge and appreciation for holistic health and the mind/ body connection. Holly began deepening her passion for all things holistic, and as that passion expanded, so did her vision. In 2009, Everything Zen was born.

Today, Everything Zen is a thriving holistic health practice. Holly is dedicated to her commitment to education. Often, her bodywork sessions include several different modalities; incorporating therapies such as lymphatic drainage massage, postural assessment, and energy work. These therapies are combined with traditional massage to provide optimal results! Having lived with anxiety and depression herself, Holly knows the crucial role that bodywork has in her own regimen of self care, and has found it life changing. Holly especially enjoys working with helping people improve their quality of life, and is a firm believer that bodywork plays a crucial role in health and healing. It is her philosophy that a healthy mind supports a healthy body. You can schedule with Holly online, or by calling 860-861-8978. Holly is available Tuesday-Friday, and some Saturdays by appointment.

Holly especially enjoys helping people to reconnect with their bodies. She loves empowering and educating people on the first step toward improving their health!

"Holly is hands down the best massage therapist I have ever had. I have a poorly understood genetic disorder that she's gone above and beyond to research and treat, and because of her dedication, I feel better than I have in years! Words cannot express how grateful I am to have this wonderful, knowledgeable group of people on my side!" - J. H., Groton, CT
