“Tanden” is an energy center within the “hara,” an area of the body below the navel. The hara — and the tanden within it — is where breath begins.

Tanden Massage and Bodywork offers integrated massage therapy including Swedish, hot stone and deep tissue massage. The role of breath is a consistent facet of health and healing throughout all these traditions.

Tanden founder and owner Lucy Bloomfield is a nationally certified massage therapist, licensed in New Hampshire and insured through Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. She is also a licensed Compassionate Touch practitioner, offering hands-on healing for those in eldercare, hospice, and palliative care.

Lucy grew up in San Francisco and has lived in New England for 26 years. She lives with her husband, son, dog, cat and a handful of chickens on a small family farm in southern New Hampshire.
