About Darcy

Bio

Darcy is the owner of Darcy Stockton Massage Therapy and Magnolia + Fig which is an homage to her background of growing up in Northern California with a Sicilian grandfather who taught her about plants, the natural world, and magic behind life that shifts us back to center; and a grandmother from the American south who she thanks for her aesthetic and love of beauty. She came to bodywork through her own never-ending path of healing and continuing practice to learn to live in the whole body. Prior to coming to bodywork, she worked for over a decade in the fashion industry as a stylist, fashion, and market editor. She currently offers styling services at DarcyStylist.com

She graduated from the Swedish Institute in 2011 where she studied European based clinical massage therapy alongside East-Asian massage. Shortly thereafter, she started her private practice, servicing Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, which has expanded to a Manhattan location and into a brick and mortar/hotel service Magnolia+Fig in New Jersey. Her primary interest is helping clients understand their bodies from a mind/body perspective, the patterns they hold, and help attune to the felt sense needed to experience and walk through the world mindfully and fully.

She has done advanced trainings in Polarity therapy, Craniosacral therapy, Peri-Natal Massage for the birth cycle, Esalen Massage, Reiki, Somatoemotional Release, Infant and Pediatric Massage. Additionally, she is a classically trained fashion designer, spent a decade working in New York  and travelling the world as a fashion editor and stylist for some of the world’s largest publications, and has done campaign and space/event design for many well know global fashion brands. She is natural perfumer studying with Anya McCoy and Cecile Zakarian, has completed post-graduate trainings at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, studied holistic nutrition with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and has studied Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Tri-state College of Acupuncture with such influential teachers such as Mark Seem and Kiiko Matsumoto (both of who have greatly informed her approach to manual bodywork). She has been a featured massage therapist in media world-wide including The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Martha Stewart Living, DNAInfo, AOL, Dr. Oz, and on ABC News Radio.
