Marlen, massage therapist
Marlen Caduff has been practicing massage therapy and health coaching over the last twelve years and has acquired her training in the United States, Switzerland, and Thailand. While working as a registered nurse in Switzerland, Marlen has become more interested in the mind/body/spirit connection and decided to pursue a degree in Body and Movement, which focuses on postural analysis, the effects of the mind – body connection and extensive bodywork to bring the body back into balance. She later moved to the United States, where she became a licensed Massage therapist in Florida and Massachusetts.
Despite her extensive work experience she acquired throughout her career, she is committed to continue her own education to provide her clients with the best care possible. Her training includes nutritional coaching, mind – body connection and different therapeutic bodywork modalities. She has also traveled to Thailand to become certified in thai massage (Level 1 to 3) as well as certified in Chi Nei Tsang massage (abdominal massage).
Marlen’s clientele ranges from athletes to individuals with their own individual needs. Some clients have injuries, while others lost touch with their bodies and want to restore that connection. All of the clients have one thing in common, they all want to focus on their overall wellbeing. Clients leave her sessions feeling restored, connected, and are able to perform better in their every day life.
After running her own successful business for 8 years in Tampa, Marlen decided to move to Boston to be closer to the mountains and enjoy the colder weather and continue to pursue her passion as a bodyworker and health coach. Her goal is to help each client to find a lifestyle that brings body and mind back into balance and optimal health.
Courtney Sgambelluri, Posture Therapist
Courtney grew up playing sports and watching people’s lives transform by her dad. He worked with athletes and people getting them out of pain through Postural Therapy.
When she began college and her lifestyle changed: She was more sedentary. Before she knew it, she had pain; low back, foot & shoulder pain. She was scared and confused because doctors were unable to help with her pain. She eventually searched out alternatives, which led her back to her roots, of Postural Therapy.
Her dad invited her to try some of the postural alignment exercises and explained that pain had to do with her alignment (i.e., my posture). Like most children, she ignored him, until it got to the point where the pain was affecting her happiness and wellbeing. She gave in and started doing a personalized exercises and menu of exercise he created for her. The pain lessened and eventually went away completely. This made her CURIOUS. .
After reading about Posture Therapy in Pain Free, by founder Pete Egoscue, she thought, "Why isn't this common knowledge?". She shadowed her dad and other Postural Therapists. She saw how postural therapy was magic and overtime patient that came in was helped. She was a strong believer and became passionate to learn.
She finished her undergrad degree at Gonzaga University and immediately enrolled in Egoscue University® to study Posture Therapy. There, she completed my Posture Analysis Specialist (PAS) I and II certifications. She then worked as a Posture Therapist at Egoscue Headquarters in San Diego, CA where she learned from Pete Egoscue and the other senior therapists.
Now in Boston, She still loves being a Postural Therapist. She's excited to be a part of the Integrative Health team at WellFit Studio and she is excited to have the opportunity to work with you. Both Courtney and WFS believe postural therapy is the best way to live pain free for the rest of you life. Please see out Resource page and FAQs for more information.
