 Let’s be clear. Pain IS a symptom, NOT a diagnosis.

The reality is that some pain, both emotional and structural, is inevitable in life, but chronic pain can completely exhaust your body’s resources. It is your birthright to live pain free, and it is possible.  

The Rasamaya Method Live Pain Free Program is a form of integrative pain management that merges together the latest neuroscience and mind-body research with the wisdom of exercise science and Carrie's expertise as a nurse in orthopaedics and primary care, and over twenty years experience as a  postural therapist,  personal trainer, anatomy teacher and yoga, Pilates and barre teacher trainer.

The Rasamaya Live Pain Free Program focuses on empowering you to be an advocate for your own health and utilizes gentle corrective postural exercises, your "brain on pain" education, behavioral and stress management techniques, bodywork, and holistic nutrition.  If you commit to the program wholeheartedly, you will not only learn to sit with pain when it does arise, but you will also gain an artillery of tools to fight back with. These tools will allow you to move beyond the pain, and rid yourself of it so you can get back to the active, beautiful life you love.

All clients start with a free telephone consultation followed by an initial assessment. Following the assessment a treatment plan will be developed that will include a menu of easy therapeutic exercises and techniques specifically designed to address your pain and structural compensations. 

Each session will be focused on our goal of getting you as pain free. You will be given videos, handouts, and education so that you can easily complete the therapy at home.  Many clients find substantial relief in just six weeks, and packages are sold in this manner. 


If you live too far away to come in for weekly sessions you may want to consider a 3 day intensive. The intensive format includes an initial assessment and three sessions consisting each of two hours (a total of six hours), with one hour of homework each day.  Just like the weekly sessions, a treatment plan will be developed and taught to you. While it is not likely (although not impossible) that your pain will disappear by the end of the intensive, the tools you gain will set you far along the path to healing.  Subsequent follow-up sessions can be completed via skype or zoom.

An intensive can be an excellent time to rest or explore gorgeous New England. Carrie is a long time resident of coastal New England  (and a foodie) and can offer suggestions for accommodations, food, and sightseeing.


We recognize that individual sessions are costly so we designed a six-week course. Over the years Carrie has found that certain exercises get assigned to almost every client and are universally applicable.  The group session is focused on these more generalized corrective exercises. Initial assessments are highly encouraged to allow for personal attention in the classes.  Every week will address different common alignment issues with a large focus on spinal integrity,  proper joint loading, core strength and the role of the nervous system in pain. Stress management and meditation will also be taught at each session.  Videos and handouts will accompany the in-class materials. Group clients may also purchase private sessions to fine tune the work they do in class. See our workshop page for upcoming dates. 


Many clients choose to add on some of Carrie's additional offerings including Thai Bodywork, Stretch Therapy, Classes, Retreats or Workshops
