Madeline Bassinder, LMT

Management Team/Massage Therapist

Qualifications: Licensed Massage Therapist
Born: Newport, RI
Now lives: Jamestown, RI

Professional background leading to career in health and wellness: 

I was in Nursing school, approaching graduation when I made the decision that the reactive healthcare setting wasn’t where I wanted to be long-term. I thought about ways in which I could proactively help people get better physically, and stay healthy… Massage therapy was the perfect match!

What reasons you are passionate about helping others: 

I think it is that innate quality that many health care providers share in common – we are caregivers at the core. I love being able to build relationships with my clients, over weeks, months and years. I feel invested in getting them feeling better – helping them maintain a life free of pain, doing the things they love most.

What do you enjoy in your free time:

I am an outdoorsy person. I love traveling to new places to experience new things. Art is a huge passion of mine that I pair with any adventure, my camera in arms reach wherever I go! And music is always playing!
