Linda Mac Dougall…Holistic Health Practitioner, Specialized Massage TherapistTaming Insidious Inflammation and Pain
I work with arthritis and arthritis-like conditions. Currently I have clients with fibromyalgia, cancer and chemo, Lyme, Parkinson’s, and other lesser conditions.
As a specialized massage therapist, I use CBD massage oil to reduce the aches and pains of aging and poor structural integrity. As a Holistic Health Practitioner, I can go much farther. I work with the client to find nutritional depletions due to medications and endeavor to rebalance and nuture the body through diet and supplements.
Inflammation (and the resulting pain) is something I have personally had to deal with due to multiple injuries. I have found things that work well for me and others so I pass that information on in my work with clients.
Knowledge changes all the time. I research for the latest information or go back in time for tried and true remedies. I work for you. You are in control. I will offer my ideas and what I have learned. You make the decisions armed with information you either choose to follow or choose to decline so you are in charge of the results, too.
Having a M.A. in Counseling Psychology, I may be able to help you see if and where you are hindering your own progress. After all, you have to really want to get better or feel better rather than to relish the victim role. The mind has a lot to do with how you deal with pain.
I have worked with special needs populations for much of my life. I have been an aide, an administrator, and an advocate. My interest in health came from my mother who was a health advocate of the 60’s.
This is being written as a testimonial for my experience from receiving local massage from Linda Mac Dougall for several months. During that time, I have learned many differences between beauty salon massage and ‘real’ massage.
Also, during the sessions, I have learned so much about my own body, as well as conversations contributing more knowledge about natural products, nutrition, and many corrections and relief from long-standing less drastic body aches and pains stemming from old injuries, surgeries, improper walking apparel, and other abuses to my health – some genetic , and many stress-related.
I wish it were possible for more ‘mature’ adults to be able to receive the benefits I have received from my experience of massages and holistic education.
Linda Mac Dougall’s presentation was extremely informative and stimulating! She educated our staff and volunteers on what our bodies need, and how posture affects it. Thanks Linda!

To whom it may concern,
On September 19, Linda MacDougall gave a presentation and performed numerous demonstrations of senior massage to the Residents here at The Gables. Her talk was extremely informative, interesting and knowledgeable, which proved that she is an expert in her field. Her section on the correct usage of walkers was especially helpful. She followed this up by demonstrating her unique senior massage on a number of Residents. The look of satisfaction on their faces and the patience of them waiting their turn was a testament to Linda’s professionalism. Many Residents commented on how happy they were with both the talk and the massage, and I would highly recommend other facilities using Linda MacDougall. She is a credit to her profession.
