Meg Agnew, LMT
A native of Santa Fe, NM, I have been practicing massage and bodywork for over 25 years and have had the honor of working with thousands of clients. I am passionate about offering an experience of deep self-connection and transformation through the application of skilled touch.
As a dancer and movement-theatre artist, I have a deep and kinesthetic understanding of the body. I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1987 and operated a private massage practice in New York City for 12 years. I have studied many other touch modalities including shiatsu, Ayurvedic bodywork, reflexology, pregnancy massage, polarity therapy, medical massage and movement therapy in the Anna Halprin Tradition.
In 1992, I moved my practice to the beautiful Berkshire Mountains and began studying the Trager® Approach soon after. Several years later, I became a Certified Trager Practitioner and have enjoyed a practice with Trager as the primary modality ever since.
I continue to be involved in the world of performing arts as a movement-theater artist, director and teacher. I love the balance these two very different worlds offer; both are kinesthetic in nature but I find the focus of my bodywork practice to be a grounded sanctuary and a lovely contrast to the extraverted world of creating dance-theater with multiple artists and students in a wide variety of settings.
I am a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, the New Mexico Academy of Advanced Healing Arts and the Swedish Institute in New York City. I was on the faculty of the Kripalu School of Massage for many years in Lenox, MA, and worked in the Kripalu Healing Arts Department. I am co-founder of Heroic Productionz, an arts-based educational and consulting company dedicated to issues of social justice and the environment, and I also serve on the board of Flying Deer Nature Center in New Lebanon, NY. My husband of 20+ years, Merlin Wisswaesser, is an Alexander Technique teacher. We have three children and two granddaughters.
