Rylee Moore, LMT
I am Rylee Moore, LMT (they/them/theirs). I started Embodied Massage LLC in 2022. We are located within Aralia Health in downtown Missoula. I grew up in Missoula and studied dance in Winston-Salem, NC, at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, continuing onto London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS). My dance training at LCDS has allowed somatic practices like Feldenkrais, Pilates, yoga, improvisation, and contact work to inform my understanding of embodiment through sensations of movement, breath and touch. Primarily, dance-based practices of collaboration and contact-improvisation have informed them with a strong level of consent communication. I am interested in how to co-create a space in massage therapy that emerges out of the needs of the client and the skills of the practitioner.
Embodied Massage is informed by the critique of alternative medicine not being inclusive to people who lie outside of a cisgendered, heteronormative social fabric. I am passionate about celebrating and caring for all bodies, and want to work to make a community that is grounded in radical care. I am a non-binary, trans, queer, white, able-bodied person and recognize that I am residing on stolen land of the Salish-Kootenai people. I also want to acknowledge that touch-based therapies are practiced in most cultures, but the monetization and certification process is a colonial imposition and abstraction from indigenous roots.
Embodied Massage provides a certain number of donation-based massages by raffle and offers sliding scale options so that funds are not a barrier to receiving services. Our facility is ADA accessible. If you have any questions or concerns, please see the FAQ page on my website and contact me directly. I look forward to collaborating with you and helping to facilitate a greater level of embodiment through touch-based care.
