​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.
