Every Body Integrative Massage says
During this month-long residency, Moriah Ella Mason seeds a community of caring. An artist and licensed massage therapist, Mason takes up an intentionally inclusive mobile massage practice to offer sliding-scale treatment to all—especially those who have experienced trauma. EveryBody brings together individualized treatments with education and advocacy to create a cohesive prescription for healing individuals and communities.

Presented as part of Penn Avenue Creative, an accelerator program for emerging artists, entrepreneurs, social change leaders and visionaries.

Made possible with generous support from The Heinz Endowments.
