Safe Within Therapeutic Massage

Molly Abel - MT123476


Welcome! Thank you for taking an interest in my work.

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (MT123476) and Reiki practitioner located in San Marcos, Texas. I share space with the San Marcos Community Acupuncture Clinic inside the Fountain Plaza.

A little about me:

After earning a BS in Psychology from Texas State University, I pursued a career in massage therapy when I realized what an impact bodywork had on my overall wellbeing, particularly, my mental health. I find the mind-body connection fascinating, and I noticed that my college courses did not delve deeply into the subject despite how intrinsically connected our body is to psychological functioning. I found myself troubled by the rise in pharmaceutical medications and wanted to offer the world more options for health management. Using techniques from several modalities, along with communicating with you, I create a massage that is gentle yet thorough and effective at relieving tension and holding patterns in the body. 

Along the way, I received Reiki for the first time during a regular massage session. While the therapist was cradling my head, doing seemingly nothing, I saw a swirl of light in my mind's eye as my thoughts gently melted away. Fortunately, it was unprompted because this aided in dispelling my skepticism around energy work. I was very aware of the placebo effect, but the nurturing impact was undeniable. Shortly after attaining my massage license, I found a Reiki teacher and community I was able to learn with for several years. This created a great foundation for my professional practice.   

In addition to continuously educating myself on massage and energy work, I enjoy learning about herbal medicine and incorporate it into my services by way of infused balms and oils I make by hand + aromatherapy.

Many factors play into the amount of comfort we feel in our bodies. My intention is to help you identify the sources of stress in your life and aid in managing them, so that you can feel at ease more often. Consider me a friendly guide, rather than an authority, as we work together to set you on a path to greater health. 

I look forward to meeting you! If you'd like to learn more, I encourage you to check out my social media links at the top of this page.
