Massage therapist expands to Shelburne

Linda Lambert

Linda Lambert is in her 15th year as a massage therapist and Thai Yoga Bodyworker. As her practice has grown, she has seen how Thai Yoga Bodywork and Thai Massage get many Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage clients off the table and onto a comfortable futon mat on the floor to experience the benefits of this unique practice. Lambert is excited to announce that starting Sept. 17, she will begin seeing clients for both kinds of massage at the Shelburne Inn in Suite 202, sharing office space with acupuncturist Megan Godfrey.

Although Lambert will continue to see clients in her South Burlington location, she is hopeful that adding office space in Shelburne Village will enable her to work with an even broader client base in the area. Lambert said, “Prospective clients should know that while Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage remain important and popular offerings in my work, introducing people to Thai Yoga Bodywork has become a passion of mine because I have seen how it has benefitted a broad range of people.”

Having worked as a nurse and hospice care provider in Southern Vermont for a number of years, Lambert went to massage school in 1997 with plans to offer massage to cancer patients and their caregivers. “This remains a rewarding part of my practice,” Lambert said, “and I love working with clients who seek out massage for other reasons, including stress reduction; the relief of aches and pains, wear and tear, and injuries; and the promotion of one’s general wellbeing.”

When Lambert first learned of Thai Massage and its therapeutic results, she was determined to learn the ancient and sacred healing art. “I trained at the Omega Institute in New York, the Kripalu Center in Massachusetts, and was very fortunate to have the opportunity to study in Thailand with Master Pichet Bonthamme in 2001,” she said. Since then, Lambert has also refined her skills assisting several workshops in New York and Massachusetts, and she has done some teaching and has tutored many students in this work as well.

If Thai Massage is new to you, consider trying Lambert’s popular combination of Swedish and Thai on the table. Lambert noted that both treatments have helped countless people with headaches, lower back, neck, shoulder, knee, and hip pain, and tension.
