Lucy Belter, LCMT, LICSW, owner of River Spirit Massage and Lucy Belter, LICSW Psychotherapy.
I trained at Polarity Realization Institute, Ipswich, MA in 1994 in Massage Therapy and have owned River Spirit Massage in Topsfield, MA since 1998. I have been a nationally certified massage provider since 1994. In 2006 I began studying Myofascial Release Treatment with master teacher John Barnes PT, MT. I enjoy adding to my MFR skills with ongoing trainings in this gentle and profound work.
I received an MSW from Simmons College School of Social Work, Boston, MA in 1988 and have been practicing Clinical Social Work since then with adults in group and individual therapy in a variety of settings. In 2010 I added body centered psychotherapy/integrative bodywork to my work, based on Bioenergetic Therapy principles.
My mission is to provide a safe and caring environment for the enhancement of self healing, harmony, and discovery. The benefits of working with me include decreased stress, tension, and pain, and improved flexibility, energy levels, ease of movement and body awareness.
I greatly enjoy assisting you in maximizing your wellness through this restorative, presence-focussed work. I also enjoy gardening, hiking, cross country skiing, yoga, playing with our Black Lab, Nellie, singing in a local choral society, cooking with friends, and visiting the ocean with my fly-fishing husband Rich Murphy.
