Lindsey Chel, LMT, Certified Arvigo® Practitioner
Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Arvigo® Practitioner
Lindsey has worked with women of all ages providing bodywork and alternative healthcare since 2011. She is a Certified Arvigo Practitioner, specializing in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy, Supporting Pregnancy and Spiritual Healing. Lindsey has completed a 3,000+ hour program of study in Kototama Life Medicine, a style of Japanese acupuncture which has been passed down from generation to generation through clinical apprenticeship.
After several years of practicing hands-on bodywork within the context of Arvigo Therapy, Lindsey found herself drawn to acupuncture because it provided a full system of medicine which encompassed many traditional methods for both diagnosis and treatment. Both lineages in which Lindsey has studied, Arvigo Therapy and Kototama Life Medicine, have a rich history and are grounded in decades-long apprenticeships with traditional healers. This has provided Lindsey with an expansive understanding of how to best bring people back into harmony with themselves and their environment.
Lindsey enjoys working with women throughout all stages of life, from the beginning of menses to menopause. She is captivated by the transformations that women make throughout their life as each new stage offers great insight, unexplored opportunities and life-giving challenges. She finds the witnessing of these movements to be of great importance for her own growth as a woman and uses each encounter to offer better, more compassionate care for herself and her clients.
Since Lindsey is still in the final stages of becoming a Licensed Acupuncturist, she spends quite a bit of time studying for her board exams (which she will complete in 2021). When she isn’t reading a book or in the clinic, you can find her walking in the park and admiring the wonders of nature with her partner Anthony and their favorite pup, Topanga.
