Arches Bodywork

Helping people with chronic pain achieve long term relief.


Therapeutic Massage

Arches Bodywork is an outcome based massage practice. I use a number of massage and bodywork techniques and modalities to achieve pain-relief for my clients.

Since every massage is customized according to my client’s specific goals and preferences, which techniques are actually used during a session can vary greatly from client to client—even from session to session.

Some of the modalities and techniques you can expect to find in your customized therapeutic massage:

  • Swedish
  • Deep Tissue
  • Myofascial Release

About Your Therapist


Marilyn hails from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, CO. She has a bachelors degree in fine art and has lived in several major cites on both coasts. 

Marilyn shifted gears to massage therapy in 2015 after sitting sideline to her husband's long recovery from a rock climbing accident. It was that experience that encouraged Marilyn to persue a career in a field that physically helps people through the tough stuff life has to offer. 

Marilyn enrolled into a program that is based in neuromuscular therapy and continued to build on that foundation with additional stretch techniques, orthopedic techniques, and a certification in medical massage. 

Marilyn has a very intuitive approach to massage that helps people relax but also produces long-lasting relief. 

Marilyn and her family relocated to Belmont, NC during the pandemic in 2020. When she's not massaging, she's busy making hand-bound notebooks for her side business Emgie Libris.
