Meet our team
Maggie McGinnis, LMT
Hello! I am Maggie McGinnis, owner of Imagine Peace. I graduated from Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School and became a licensed massage therapist in 2007. I build my massage therapy sessions around each client's needs and work with women, men, and children of all ages. I can help you with focused deep tissue work, injury recovery and pain relief or just let you de-stress, relax your mind and renew your spirit. I was a birth doula for many years, and I have a special passion for working with women throughout pregnancy and early motherhood.
My happy home is shared with my wonderful partner, my amazing 5 year old daughter, and a house full of pets! We spend our days together creating art, gardening, reading, dancing and playing. We love cooking, making kombucha, and herbal tinctures. I am very dedicated to parenting as naturally as possible. If you need help with pregnancy resources, creating your birth plan, breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, or anything else you can think of. Please pick my brain, I am happy to help!
