Somatic Massage & Wellness Education

About Megan

My name is Megan Malan, I'm from San Diego and I've been practicing massage and bodywork since the Spring of 2003. I have over 1200 hours of massage and bodywork training that I received at the International Professional School of Bodywork (IPSB) in San Diego, where I later became a faculty member.

Always fascinated by lighter styles of touch, I began by studying various forms of energy work, beginning with Reiki then Craniosacral Therapy and later Matrix Energetics. A few years into my practice I recognized that people frequently find comfort sharing their stories of trauma, stress, and abuse with me. So I received specialized training in Relational Somatics so I could support my clients' processes of releasing trauma. The foundation of my work is in establishing a relationship built on empathy, and providing a safe place for you to express yourself. 

Throughout my time as a bodyworker I've worked in chiropractic offices, a physical therapy clinic, massage therapy centers, and luxury spas. As an instructor at IPSB I aided in Essentials of Massage and Bodywork, and assisted in Somatic Assimilation and Client Centered Communications. My experience in each of these settings directly influences my work in so many positive ways.
