I am Maria Barresi, sole owner and therapist at Soulful Bodyworks. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Holistic Master Aesthetician, Usui Reiki Master, and Certified Herbalist. I received my
Bachelor’s Degree from Salem State University with a concentration in Integrative Holistic Health and Wellness, and I have been working as a professional holistic health and wellness practitioner since
My interest in healthcare began to spark while I was growing up in a
small mountain town, surrounded by eclectic retreat centers that offered numerous holistic wellness therapies. It was through meeting and working with a variety of integrative healthcare practitioners that I knew at an early age I wanted to help others on
their path to whole-body wellness. My goal is to help my clients achieve a vibrant state of well-being by offering supportive wellness therapies that aim to restore and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. I believe that holistic therapies offer multiple benefits to one’s overall health and well-being, and can make a lasting, positive impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness.
The wellness services I offer are: Swedish Aromatherapy Massage,
Raindrop Technique Massage, Prenatal Swedish Massage, Holistic Spa Therapy Treatments, Usui Reiki Energy, and Crystal Chakra Balancing.

Alongside my wellness services, I co-facilitate Restorative Yoga Retreats with my friend Olga Kaminsky, RMT, RYT at a local studio in Beverly, MA. At these retreats we welcome you to relax your body, rejuvenate your mind, and restore your spirit with gentle Yoga poses and pampering bodywork.

I continue to advance my knowledge and skills in the
ever-growing field of holistic healthcare, studying with health and wellness professionals
from around the world. My passion for empowering others and my life-long
dedication to learning is what drives me to excel in offering heart-centered and compassionate wellness services to the community. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and to help support you on your path to an optimal state of well-being in body, mind and spirit!
