Our company has been in business for over 25 years. Our former name Muscular Therapy for Health and Wellness was started in Danvers, Ma. in 1997. In 2003 the company was relocated to Georgetown Ma, and the name was changed to Massage Experts because our old name wouldn’t fit on the sign LOL. All kidding aside we take our name Massage Experts very seriously and continuously strive to be experts in our field by constantly studying and staying up to date with new information in our field.

Deborah Wood - Scearbo
Deb, Proprietor/Owner of Massage Experts, has been practicing massage for 30 years.
She is Nationally Board Certified,Certified in Orthopedic Massage and also holds her Master Myoskeletal Certification, one of the most prestigious titles in the massage profession. She found her way into massage therapy through her love of figure skating.
She started skating at the age of 25 and found that by receiving massage therapy on a regular basis, that it helped to keep her injury free and gave her the competitive edge that most athletes are looking for. As a result she is still currently skating and competing now in Ice Dance in her late 50s.
She uses her massage therapy skills off the ice to help give other athletes the competitive edge and to help reduce their chances of soft tissue injuries from the types of strenuous and repetitive movements involved in their sport.
Deb also enjoys working with all types of people, not just athletes. Many of her clients come to her for job related injuries and everyday wear and tear issues
In addition to being a muscular therapist, Deb is a wife and a mom. She attends Community Bible Study once a week and has been a part of this organization for over 25 years. She is actively involved in her church, Great Rock in Danvers, Ma. Deb was also the Vice President of the North Shore Skating Club for 3 years and served on the board of directors for many years. When not massaging Deb enjoys her family, the beach, cooking, reading, flower gardening and her passion for ice dancing.
She has accomplished the following:
- 5 time United States Freestyle Adult Silver Lady National Champion
- Adult National Freestyle Gold Lady Silver Medalist
- Adult National Silver Pair Gold Medalist
She has performed sports massage at prestigious events such as the:
- 2014 US National Figure Skating Championships
- 2016 World Figure Skating Championships
She has had the pleasure & honor of working on elite & talented skaters such as:
- Sasha Cohen
- Kurt Browning World and Olympic ice dancer Madison Chock
- Simon Shnapir and Marissa Castelli, bronze medalists in the team event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi Russia
I have had 3 major neck fusion surgeries, which includes broken hardware and screws. I saw another massage therapist for years which was helpful but not as helpful as Deb and Jeff have been, they have been able to help relieve my chronic suffering on days nothing would even touch it. My neck is not something a lot of massage therpists feel comfortable massaging, and I’ve found it difficult to relax and trust providers because of my past history with failed fusions and broken screws. Deb and Jeff always make me feel very comfortable and confident in their expert opinions and techniques they are not your average therapists they are extensively trained so much so that my Surgeon from Brigham Womens was amazed at their techniques & follow up notes. He suggests I continue with them long term for pain management. My only regret is not finding them sooner. They have helped me beyond measure.
Emily began her path into the field of massage therapy as an actual client of Massage Experts. Working in restaurant kitchens and dining rooms for 13 years gave her plenty of muscular aches and pains that needed to be treated. She went to college for holistic health and wellness and discovered that it would be complemented with massage therapy.
That led to her decision to attend massage school and combine massage therapy with holistic health, allowing her to combine her acquired skills and use them effectively.
Her strong background in energy work as a Polarity and level 2 Reiki Practitioner has helped to solidify her belief in the mind body connection which she enjoys transcending to her clients.
Her experience with fast paced stressful jobs has given her a greater understanding and special empathy for her clients that endure the conditions she has.
In addition to massage Emily is also working on a degree in Biotechnology and is also interested in learning more about reflexology and acupressure.
In her spare time she enjoys painting, poetry, going to concerts and cheesy B-movies
Jeff, previously owner of J. Dooling Muscular Therapy, is a Massachusetts state licensed and Nationally Board Certified massage therapist who completed his initial course of massage instruction at Spa Tech Institute of Ipswich.
Jeff also holds certifications for the following:
- Orthopedic Massage and Medical Massage
After completing a successful career with the Massachusetts State Police, he decided to dedicate his life to helping others in a different arena. Over the past 20 years Jeff has learned that massage is both an art and a science.
In his sessions, he uses a multidisciplinary approach integrating diverse techniques such as muscle energy technique ,trigger point therapy, strain counter strain, multi-directional friction, myofascial stretching, PNF, and many others that are specific to each individual client so that longer lasting outcomes can be achieved.
In his spare time Jeff enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading historical fiction and non-fiction, and finding quiet bliss in the mountains.

You’ve heard the word “orthopedic” before, most likely related to a surgery or treatment in a clinical setting. So what exactly is orthopedic massage?
Orthopedic massage focuses on the tissues and muscles surrounding the joints of the body. While it aims to alleviate the source of bodily pain and tension, orthopedic massage also works to restore balance to these physical structures.
