Molly Glasgow, CA, RMT is a Certified Acupressurist and Reiki Master, author, and facilitator. She specializes in addressing physical and emotional trauma, HIV/AIDS, cancer and first aid. Molly studied acupressure at the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, CA, and Reiki, the Usui method of natural healing or Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho with Christine Milovani, MSSW, RMT in Madison, WI and Riquelle Small, RMT in Oakland, CA.
Molly’s main focus is to help people’s bodies heal themselves through a holistic approach tailored to each client’s specific needs. This work supports the body in creating the right circumstances to heal and address the root cause of health conditions.
Molly shares self-care points with each client to support their healing process and for long-term health. She is dedicated to making this work accessible, and provides workshops and resources through the framework of self and community care.
She began studying acupressure to navigate her own autoimmune disorder and quickly began to notice changes in her health. Not only did this work give Molly the tools to address what what happening in her body, it explained why it was happening, something that up until that point medicine had not provided. With patient support from an acupuncturist and herbalist recommended to her from her boss at the Coalition on Homelesness, and building on her Reiki training, Molly continued to study acupressure- first for herself, then with the intention on sharing self-care tools and starting a practice. Molly later connected the points she was learning with points her father had used with her as a child, speaking to the connection in ways we take care of ourselves.
In addition to maintaining her private practice since 2009, Molly was a practitioner at the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester from 2011-2018, a volunteer practitioner at The Aliveness Project from 2010-2016, served as Board President of MetroIBA / Buy Local Twin Cities from 2016-2018, an independent business alliance that focuses on supporting local business in the Twin Cities, and President of WOW Networking Group in 2011, which provides resources and networking opportunities to women entrepreneurs. She is also Co-Founder and facilitator for Restoring Power: Trauma & Resilience for Organizers and Q20: an embodied LGBTQ support group that focuses on self-care and author of When My Tummy Hurts: An Acupressure Book for Kids and Their Grown-Ups.
In order to provide clients with the best possible care, Molly engages in a wide range of continuing education and research.
