Hannah Rohloff (she/her) is a Licensed Massage Therapist through the state of Massachusetts and board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork. She is a member of the Society for Oncology Massage, the National Lymphedema Network, and Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. Hannah came to massage therapy after a decade spent in the field of companion animal medicine. Her strong medical background was a perfect fit with the therapeutic massage focus and training provided in massage school. She is a 2009 graduate of the Cortiva Institute in Boston, MA. She worked for several years in Boston before returning to her home state of Vermont.
Hannah has a special interest in working with clients currently in cancer treatment and those living with cancer histories. She trained in Oncology massage under Tracy Walton as well as completing an oncology massage internship through the Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine Department at Boston Medical Center. In 2012, she completed a certification course in Manual Lymph Drainage (Vodder) through the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. In 2019, she finished the full Lymph Drainage Therapy curriculum through the Chikly Health Institute to broaden her knowledge and skill in working with the lymphatic system. She has taken several of the additional LDT classes offered through Chikly, completing a total of 150 hours of training with CHI. She recently completed a Breast Cancer Rehab class offered through Klose Training in 2021.
She continues to hone her massage and lymph knowledge and skill through yearly continuing education, staying current with massage related research, and regular application of techniques learned. She “practices what she preaches” as well by regularly trading with local massage therapists to receive bodywork and broaden her experience with specialized massage modalities. She maintains a network of Vermont and Boston-based massage professionals to whom she can refer clients living outside her area or those needing additional approaches to achieve wellness.
Hannah lives in Barre Town with her wife, Samantha, two cats, and six chickens. In her free time, she finds joy in gardening, dance, hiking, and cooking. She thinks Vermont is quite possibly the best place to live in the world, and yes, she even likes the snow!
