Please note that Anahata Massage has closed the East Providence location. It was not possible to see clients in that space with the degree of air flow I deemed safest. When I have a new space that can be used safely and in accordance with the best practices of hygiene this page will be updated.
I am honored by the trust my clients have placed in me and am trying to respond by making my decisions at this time in accordance with that trust.
I am seeing a limited number of clients, only outside at your home. If you are within a reasonable travel distance for me, have an outside area with a hose available for hand washing, and privacy and shade (you wear a mask and a bathing suit, or similar attire) I may be able to offer you a session. I only do one hour sessions, and require a Covid questionairre the day before a session. I also cannot promise a session, as I limit the number available. Hot stones are not available. Pride depends on distance. Our governor recently mentioned that risk is 19 times less outside, so I am trying to provide the safest possible experience by working with PPE, outside, limiting work on the face, and limiting the length of the session. Please send a message through the Contact me page if you are interested.
My current online yoga teaching, and short self massage videos are listed on the page "Current class schedule", as well as on my FB pages.
A Message from Ariadne
Welcome to the site for Anahata Massage and Ariadne Greenberg Yoga.
Anahata is the Sanskrit word for the fourth chakra: the heart center. I chose this word for my business because, in the words of that classic of early cinema Metropolis: "The mediator between the head and hands must be the heart." Massage is an art and a science that provides therapeutic treatment for soft tissue imbalance, tension, and stress. The main tools of this treatment are the therapist's hands. But the work must be guided by careful study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, practical technique, psychology, and so on, and can positively affect both body and mind. What connects these two... understanding and practice.... is compassion and concern for the needs and conditions of each unique person who allows me the privilege of working with them.

If you would like to set up an appointment, click "Contact Me" and send me a message. This will also add you to my contact list (which will never be sold or otherwise shared). When I return your message you can let me know your preferred method of communication, ask questions, and let me know what type of service you want, ask not to be on my email list, and we can determine if I am a good match for those needs. Massage, at its best, is about practitioner and client working together.
