​Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. My name is Tara Ellen and I am a licensed massage therapist in Falls Church. It has been my sincere honor to serve the community as a self-employed therapist since 2011. 


I specialize in subtle energy-based therapies to ease tension, calm the nervous system, restore energy, and create balance. I practice gentle forms of Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy to help enhance fluid movement and release restrictions around nerve-sensitive structures. Although other forceful approaches can be effective ways to address tension, the work I choose to practice is about allowing the energy in the fascia to communicate and change, inspiring a feeling of "I am safe". Only in this place of trust can discomfort shift into a state of ease. 

I also offer Mind-Body Coaching, which includes guidance, meditation and coherence techniques to help you navigate during challenging times. Mind-Body Coaching sessions are in-person or via Zoom. In addition, Mind-Body Coaching can be combined with bodywork sessions. Contact me for details. 


Take a moment to browse my site. All training and certifications can be found on the About page. If you have any questions or interest in scheduling a session please contact me via email to set up a phone consult, mfrfallschurch@gmail.com or visit my Request an Appointment page.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Manufacturer Recommendations 

The CBD industry is increasingly expanding at a rapid rate. There's an overwhelming amount of information out there, everything from manufactures and products, to a variety of forms of CBD, dosage strengths, extraction processes, THC content and much more. 


For the last several years I've been extremely interested about CBD for pain relief and emotional balance. I've devoted a great deal of time learning about current research, laws, and how the human body can safely absorb and utilize CBD.


There are several reputable companies that offer high quality products. Below are two of the companies I trust and recommend. Please access via my affiliate links. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
