Services:  Swedish, Deep Tissue Massage

Bio: Angela is a recent graduate of Bancroft School of Massage in Worcester. After deciding 15 months ago that it was time to make a career change, she embarked on a new path leading to avenues where she can help people in ways which were not possible before. She loves to work with her hands and has always expressed herself through them as an artist and musician. Now those hands can express themselves through a new medium; massage which is an art form in itself.

In only a short time, Angela has worked with some extraordinary people coming from all walks of life. Spending over 100 internship/volunteer hours in all types of settings including UMass Cancer Walks, Vets Inc., Sherry’s House, part of the Why My organization and Bancroft’s in-house Student Clinic. Angela has worked on dozens of clients from age 8-96 with all types of pathologies and conditions: cancer, MS, carpal tunnel, frozen shoulder, piriformis syndrome, migraines and sciatica to name a few. From administering vigorous pre-event treatments to athletes to simple heart-felt hand massages to our senior community, Angela adapts and listens to who her client is and what they need. Her instructors and clients comment consistently on her intuition, laid-back and calming vibe that puts people at ease and quick wit, light-hearted sense of humor. She’s always trying to get that smile out of you, and she will!

Angela is eager to learn and wants to keep adding to her “arsenal of wellness”. With Swedish and deep-tissue massage under her belt, she plans to get certified in hot-stone massage in April, obtain certification in geriatric massage and wants to learn Myofascial release techniques in the coming year as well.

I really liked Lisa right from the start. Her fun loving/sweet attitude instantly puts you at ease, her approach is very professional, and she is very well learned in her approach to Reiki. I wasn’t sure what to expect with my session with Lisa, but she helped me tremendously with some self-care issues I was having. At the very beginning I felt a deep sense of relaxation coming from her hands. Like a warm wave of energy flowing through her. I was having some pretty serious issues with my back and my ankle which she picked on right away. A day later I can say they feel much better than earlier. I left my session with Lisa feeling refreshed, Relaxed, and at peace. Book an appointment with her today!

Lisa Brazil-Pomar is an amazing woman with a beautiful gift. I have truly been blessed to have met her through Story Time Reiki at Uplifting Connections. The setting is so peaceful and the meditations are geared towards children and still extremely appropriate for adults to connect with as well. The first time Lisa practiced reiki on me I felt an inner peace and calmness that is unexplainable through words. She is so down to earth that nothing ever felt uncomfortable and I felt safe to discuss any issues I was facing. Thank you Lisa from the bottom of my heart for blessing me with these experiences.

Love, Kim xoxo

I thoroughly enjoyed my session of Reiki with Lisa.  Actually I thoroughly benefited from the Reiki. During the session I felt completely safe, relaxed and peaceful. It afforded me the opportunity to just “stop”.  The rest of the day I felt very grounded and calm all evening, like nothing was going to rattle me. I will be back for more of that wonderful feeling………..

Clara was great at helping me get out of my head and start taking chances on what feels right for my career and life! This was my first experience working with a coach and it was also the best timing. I decided to apply for a graduate fellowship program and she helped me organize my thoughts, become clear about my reasons for applying, set a timeline, and encouraged me along the way. She was very easy to talk to and is flexible to speak about what is important for her client at the time of the session. She provided great racaps and resources to follow up with at the end of our sessions. She has a gift at bringing out the best in people and is extremely passionate about her work.

“In these sessions, I truly learned what it meant to not abandon myself. To be able to not just deal but feel my emotions and sensations as a part of being human changed my response to stress. The tools and techniques are invaluable.”- Emily P.

“What I love about my sessions with Jewels is the support and guidance I get while I learn to become aware of my old stories and change my perspectives. I was able tochange my life in a profound way”. – Jeanne P.

I have been in the Health care field since 1998 and moved to the USA in 2000. I have known Carol Benton professionally for 15 years. Through this rime have built a trusting wonderful connection with her. Carol and I have worked together, referred one another and shared resources in support of our clients. I have had the privilege of watching her grow into an amazing teacher and hands on practitioner over these years. Her compassion is unbridled, she is always considerate and constantly learning about her field. It is a pleasure to recommend her. She is excellent at her craft.

Having taken an Infant Massage class with Carol Benton was so empowering. It gave me the confidence as a new mom that I could help my baby to relax when he was fussy and to help relieve his discomfort from painful colic, I highly recommend parents learn infant massage. It has helped me and my baby to enjoy our time together communicating through loving nurturing touch.

There’s so much to write about how you’ve affected my life in such a short time.

Just listening to your voice (on the phone) brings me right back to the retreat. I’m so thankful to you (and Meghan) that I did go to the retreat. It’s amazing how much things changed in my life has just because of that one weekend; thank you very much!
Whatever you’re doing, you’re doing an awesome job! Your workshops were inspiring, educational and I’ve been able to apply the things I learned right away!
It’s just amazing how people like you just come to help others from your own experience, so I just really want to say thanks; everything was perfect! The whole event to me was more than satisfactory and I’m sure to other people too. I am so looking forward to the retreat in the spring and to see what you have going on. Just keep it up, the good positive job; you worked so hard to get us all on the path.”
