There’s No Place Like Home for Jamestown-Based Massage Therapist

Natalie Langworthy is a Chautauqua County native who’s lived in various areas across the country, but decided to return to her roots because she wanted to raise her daughter here. Natalie, a licensed massage therapist, said she remembers her childhood fondly and wanted to “raise her where I grew up.” Natalie is also a cat owner and is the proud owner of two felines, Princess Peach and Cumulo Nimbus. 

Despite living in Florida, Georgia, Montana, Utah, California, and Oregon – she was glad to come back home. One thing that drew Natalie back to the area is the natural beauty, including the plethora of outdoor activities available here, and the National Forest System. Some of her favorite activities and destinations near the Southside of Jamestown, where she resides, include the Audubon Nature Center, the Northwest Arena, area hiking trails, the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts, and Chautauqua Lake. She said she also frequents some other areas just outside her locality, including Point Gratiot in Dunkirk, Chautauqua Institution, and Lily Dale

“I love spending time at the Audubon year-round on weekends with my daughter,” she said. “Most of my free time is spent in parks or on hiking trails. Jamestown has a wealth of outdoor activities for the whole family – from creeks to rivers to the lake, our ancient forests and state parks – there is always something to do outdoors in fairer weather.” 

Natalie also enjoys the creativity that is fostered here in Chautauqua County. 

“There is also so much talent here; artists that are always creating and sharing their talents can be found in every corner of our town,” she said. “I have lived all across the U.S. in different types of communities and I have never met a more tenacious and fiercely talented art community.”

Natalie is adding to that talent community herself by bringing an innovative entertainment production company to the area called “Pop-A-Pastie Productions,” a production company that books live burlesque entertainment and dance workshops. She is no stranger to the art of burlesque, with five years of experience. 

“(I aim) to bring a different kind of variety show to the home of comedy, Jamestown, NY,” she said. “With its roots in comedy combined with the arts of tease, storytelling, and general mayhem, burlesque shows are guaranteed to entertain. Dancers range from local to national acts. Keep an eye out as Pop-A-Pastie leaves a trail of glitter on the streets of The Pearl City!”
