Why I love being a Massage Therapist

Brett K., LMT Jun 10, 2016 Health

To put it simply, it is the people.  The people I get to work with everyday and the clients I have the privilege of helping.  There is no better feeling in the world than seeing the look of relief on someone’s face after they get of the table.  Knowing that you were able to help that person, even if it is temporary, experience relief from an injury or the...

Therapist Testimonial

Hannah Rose, LMT Jan 14, 2016 Health

Not every client is here to "get better".  For some clients getting better is not the hand they were dealt.  Terminal illness, degenerative disease, and paralyzed limbs are just a few examples of conditions I've helped clients manage.  Treatment is focused on feeling a little bit lighter, more aligned, and stronger to carry on with daily medical...
