THERESA ANDERSON

Licensed Massage Therapist

I graduated from White River School of Massage Therapy in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2002. I also have a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy from UWM in Milwaukee, which has broadened my knowledge and experience with treatment of upper extremity dysfunction. In addition to my original massage therapy training, I have had many continuing education opportunities over the years that I integrate into my  massage for greater effectiveness. Some of these techniques include fascial therapies such as Myofascial Release, cupping, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization to release restrictions that create structural misalignment that causes pain. I incorporate various neuro-muscular techniques and stretching to relieve muscle tension, lengthen muscles, and increase range of motion. I also use warm towels, essential oils (when preferred), and warm stones to facilitate relaxation. Please call or text with any questions.
