I am Linda Bodell, owner and founder of The Relaxation Source.
I lived in Hawaii from 1993 to 1996. I graduated from the Kona Center for Muscular Massage K.C.M in 1995 and served my internship with the K'au High School football team. My work with the K'au Football Trojans included massage therapy, sports conditioning, and related training for the team, both onsite and on the field. After earning my license to practice massage therapy in Hawaii, I did medical massage while working with a Chiropractor. I served on the massage team for the Hawaii Iron Man Triathlon two seasons and received recognition for that event. I also served as the massage therapist for the local semi-pro, football team.
In 1998 I moved to the Bay Area of sunny California. I was qualified to practice massage therapy in the State of California and continued my private practice there. I worked with a Chiropractor doing medical massage while I worked for a leading spa, Indian Springs Health Spa ,in Calistoga where I perfected my Relaxation Massage and other Spa Techniques.
I am certified in Physiology, Anatomy, Structural Kinesiolgy, Touch for Health, and Advanced Body Work (Kates Method).
My specialties have ranged from:
- Injury Prevention
- Injury Rehabilitation
- Pain Management
- Sports Massage
- Relaxation Massage
I have been trained in the following techniques:
- Advanced Body Work
- Swedish Massage
- Deep Pressure Massage
- Therapeutic Touch
- Movement and Stretch Techniques
- Swedish Massage
- Various Spa Techniques such as body polish and wet heat treatments.
I moved to Ohio in 2004 and started working with Silent Mind/Wellsprings Studio in Twinsburg with a great group of therapist who gave me time to grow and build in my private practice. Now specializing in Relaxation Massage, I have continued my massage education. In April, 2011, I graduated as an Ethical Massage Practitioner from the The Cleveland School of Massage with Registration No. 03-11-1692T, Approved by the State Board of Career Colleges & Schools. Most recently, I graduated as an Advanced Body Work Practitioner, also from The Cleveland School of Massage, in December of 2011. My previous education and experience allowed me to take both courses simultaneously.
I intend to continue my massage education and relax with Hudson and its surrounding communities.
