OFFERINGS


Radiant Bear Massage strives to provide access to affordable and quality bodywork.  The wide range of modalities offered, such as Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, energy work or a combination of techniques assist in a deep healing of the mind, body and spirit.

Swedish Massage


Swedish Massage is the most common form of massage in the west, using broad strokes and circular motions enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

Deep Tissue


Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Prenatal Massage


A therapeutic massage that focuses on the needs of pregnant clients as their body goes through the changes of pregnancy.

Massage and Facial Cupping


Used as a tool to aid in deep tissue massage silicon cups are placed over certain parts of the body. A suction is then created by squeezing the cups over the muscles, this lends to deeper work over a shorter period of time. Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles as well as developing new blood flow and can release anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. Facial cupping is used as an anti aging technique helping to pull the skin tighter and aids in the diminishing of wrinkles.

Reiki


What is Reiki?

Reiki energy healing is a technique used for stress reduction and relaxation by gently laying hands on or above the body to promote the parasympathetic nervous systems response. On a deeper level Reiki can greatly aid in the healing process of more chronic physical issues. Reiki is a safe, natural, hands-on energy therapy that promotes healing on all levels of mind, body and spirit. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

What to Expect in a Reiki Session:

During a session, the client will lie down fully clothed and the practitioner will place their hands on or above different parts of the body. The energy flows wherever it is needed and can be described as a warm and tingling feeling. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit and is accessible to all ages and conditions.

ABOUT ANDREW

Andrew’s hope and goal as a bodywork practitioner is to pass on what he has learned throughout his teachings to serve the community.

Andrew Hallal is a licensed massage therapist and a graduate of The Massage School in Boston’s south end where he excelled in a variety of massage modalities creating a well rounded set of skills. His specialty is combining a relaxing Swedish massage with trigger point therapy along with energy work in order to assist a deep healing of the mind body and spirit.  As he seeks to make the most out of the massage experience, Andrew encourages communication with his clients to facilitate their full investment in their own healing process.

Andrew’s journey into the healing arts began several years ago while being introduced to Reiki energy healing by his aunt. Years later, in 2013, he started a regular yoga practice with Akasha Yoga Studio in Jamaica Plain. For over 15 years Andrew worked in human services assisting people in group homes and homeless shelters. Although this proved to be a very challenging and rewarding field he realized that his passions fell more in line with alternative methods of healing.

In the fall of 2014 Andrew began his 200 hour yoga teacher training with CorePower Yoga in Medford Ma. After completing his yoga teacher training Andrew started teaching community classes and volunteering with Hands To Heart Center an organization that provides free yoga classes to underserved populations. During the summer of 2015 Andrew was attuned to Reiki level one and since then gained his level two and masters with Reiki Masters Colleen Kleya and Alex Dusterfeld in Jamaica Plain, MA. Later on in the year he began an 800 hour massage therapy program with The Massage School in Boston’s South End and graduated in the fall of 2016. In October of 2016 Andrew moved to Bellows Falls, VT where he is now a full time Massage Therapist and Energy Healer.

Andrew’s kind smile and calming presence create a warmth that contributes to a therapeutic environment.  Andrew is excited to work with people of all ages, genders, sizes and body types as his approach is sensitive and empathetic to the differences in all of us.
