Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Welcoming New Massage Therapist to It’s Your Body’s Symphony

Rogelio Maldonado (JR), a recent graduate from Bancroft Massage Therapy School, is offering an introductory 90-minute hot stone, deep tissue massage for $99 to any Natural Awakenings reader during the month of July (2022). A licensed therapist registered to practice massage therapy in Rhode Island, Maldonado is looking to build his client base over the next few months at It’s Your Body’s Symphony, in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Cheryl D’Itri, owner of It’s Your Body’s Symphony where Maldonado interned last year, says, “His specialty is deep tissue massage therapy which helps work out any physical ailments, such as a tight lower back or assisting with a past injury. JR wants to bring people back to their best health.” 

Maldonado, who is visually impaired, brings a positive spirit, motivation, drive and enthusiasm to his work. The resiliency he has shown in managing an inherited genetic condition called retinitis pigmentosa, which led to a slow deterioration of his sight beginning in high school, has inspired D’Itri. “Before I will complain, I think of him and redirect my thoughts. JR has overcome many obstacles. Clients have been very receptive to him, and they love his work and professionalism.”

Cost: $99. Location: 14 Hayward St., Cranston, RI. To schedule an appointment, call/text 401-464-6100. For more information, visit
