Local Massage Therapists
The following Therapists - in no particular order - are ones that I have had a working relationship with for many years. In each case, they were my students when I was teaching at The Cortiva Institute, so I trust they had a great education! Each is unique in style, technique, and personality, so I've included my thoughts to help you choose someone that may be a good fit moving forward.
