About Patience Bousel

Patience brings to her practice, Hands of Patience, over 25 years of experience with a background in oriental medicine and health education as well as extensive training in her area of expertise as a somatic movement educator and licensed massage therapist. Through a variety of modalities, she uses an effective approach to relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote ease and well-being. The work is gentle; the effects are both deep and long-lasting.

As a Clinical Somatic Educator and practitioner of The Trager® Approach, she works in partnership with her clients to explore new possibilities of freedom, ease and spaciousness, allowing deep relaxation of body and mind.

Clients also have the option of receiving instruction in self-care movements to take into daily life as an additional way to maintain the benefits of a session.

Her approach is beneficial to people of all ages, as well as women dealing with pregnancy and post-partum issues. Her practice is located in Amherst, MA.
