About Chula Linda Gemignani

CMT, Bodyworker, DFR Founder, Instructor, Author, Somatic NLP Coach

I want to offer a warm welcome to you for visiting my website. Here is a little about me.

I’ve dedicated my heart and soul to the world of massage therapy for the past 20 years. I have had a passion for healing touch since I was a child and eventually it led me to become a Certified Massage Therapist.  In 2009, I discovered the joyful and rewarding specialty of pregnancy massage.

Throughout this incredible journey, I’ve developed a unique and nurturing style that has allowed me to maintain a thriving practice.

My most cherished creation is Dynamic Fascial Response® (DFR), a massage approach that’s like a symphony of healing. DFR was always just something I did and it grew and developed over time to what it is today. As more and more clients requested that I teach other practitioners how to do what I do, I decided to put it into words and formal development so that I could pass it on to other practitioners with clarity. I have been teaching since 2017.

DFR blends various massage modalities, structural therapies, and a deep-seated philosophy to unlock the fascial restrictions that can hold us back. DFR isn’t just my work; it’s my heart’s work. I’ve witnessed it heal trauma, relieve pain, transform postures, and uplift overall health. The gratitude from both clients and fellow practitioners warms my heart and keeps me dedicated to this path.

In addition to massage and bodywork, I’m also a neuro-linguistic, trauma-informed somatic coach, and the author of soon to be published book on DFR and pregnancy massage.

I’m incredibly honored to be approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education provider. This recognition allows me to share my expertise through courses and certification programs, spreading the power of DFR and pregnancy massage far and wide.

Thank you for letting me share my heartfelt journey with you. It’s a privilege to be a part of this world of healing and transformation
