Reprogramming Muscles
New Harmony delivers the cutting edge in holistic healing

The Stonington Times
By Russ Morey, Times Staff Writer

With light pouring through the skylights of the high vaulted ceilings of their rooms, massage therapists Ann Watkins and Randy Shepherd bring a whole new kind of therapy to eastern Connecticut.

"Neuromuscular reprogramming is based on the idea that when muscles overcompensate, other muscles are not doing their job. The solution is not just massaging muscles that hurt, but finding the root of the problem and alleviating the overcompensation. That’s when healing really occurs,” explained Watkins.
Watkins and Shepherd both studied at Alive and Well!, a world renowned, cutting edge school located in Corte Modera, Ca. After both became certified and moved back to the area in the late 1990’s, they helped expand their business, New Harmony, now based in a spacious, new addition to their home at 13 River Crest Drive in Pawcatuck.

While specializing in neuromuscular reprogramming, Watkins and Shepherd also offer many traditional massage techniques, including deep-tissue, shiatsu and acupressure. Watkins is also starting a new program called “moving from the inside out,” a project that will put her master’s degree in dance movement therapy to work. The couple will be offering massage classes, and Watkins will soon release an instructional DVD “Neuromuscular Triads.” For more information, call (860) 599-4533.
