About Donna

Hi! My name is Donna Hutchison, NYS Licensed Massage Therapist and Provider at Soul Ease Medical Massage.

Unapologetically different from any spa massage! Donna’s work, while profoundly relaxing, is ideally suited for helping heal from traumatic or repetitive injury, loss of range of motion and pain from chronic stress.

“I have continued to evolve as I study and work with intention, intuition, love and joy. I would describe my myofascial release massage technique as Reiki infused Myofascial Release, the best of both eastern and western healing traditions. Based soundly in anatomy and physiology,  this massage also embodies the magic and mystery of energy, both of which allow a profound healing experience. The wisdom of the body combined with informed touch reminds the soul of its power to heal and be whole.” 

Donna received her training in massage therapy and hydrotherapy at Finger Lakes School of Massage in 2014. Donna is also certified in many continuing education healing modalities including Manual Lymphatic Drainage from the Academy of Lymphatic Studies, Compassionate Care Touch Practitioner for late life massage; Taylor Techniques Myofascial Release Method through Master Class Level and Modern Cupping Therapy, having studied with Shannon Gilmartin with Fundamentals of Modern Cupping Therapy, Cupping for Lymphatic Drainage and Cupping for Pathology and Scar Tissue.

Some of the conditions which respond well to this work are:
 Frozen shoulder
 TMJ Disorder
 Scarring
 Sciatica symptoms from muscular compression of sciatic nerve
 Whiplash
 Migraine headaches
 Tension headaches
 Rheumatoid arthritis
 Restless leg syndrome
 Thoracic outlet syndrome
 Carpal tunnel syndrome

In her quest to advance her understanding of healing and wellness, Donna became certified in Whole Food Plant based Nutrition through Cornell University.  She is a September 2022 graduate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition’s Health Coaching program. Check out “Autumn Sunrise Health Coaching” in our service menu!  This is yet another way to work with clients and support them as they find health, wellness, purpose and meaning as they age.

Forever a student, Donna feels pulled to study CranioSacral Therapy at the Upledger Institute in the coming months. Stay tuned for the next installment in “What is Donna Studying Now?”
