Carrie believes that massage therapy is an investment in your mind and body and is an essential part of self-care. She has a passion for exploring all areas of wellness and incorporating them in her everyday life.
In her practice Carrie looks to help others find peace of mind through relaxation massages, or focuses on helping to relieve physical discomfort by using a more targeted deep tissue massage or trigger point therapy.
She specializes in a barefoot massage called Ashiatsu. In the Japenese language “Ashi” translates to foot and “Atsu” into pressure. Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy, is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Working with gravity instead of against it, Ashiatsu therapists are able to provide an effective therapeutic massage without causing pain or discomfort to themselves or the receiving client.
Other types of massage included in her scope of practice are pre-natal, reflexology, connective tissue and chair massage.
Carrie became a licensed massage therapist in PA, in 2014, after graduating from Harrisburg Area Community College massage therapy program. In that same year she earned her associates degree in Health Sciences from HACC. She began her career at a wellness center in Carlisle practicing mostly relaxation and stress relief massages. In November of 2015 she decided she wanted to provide a wider range of services and made the leap to start her own business.
Outside of her career as a massage therapist Carrie enjoys spending time with her two children, reading, practicing yoga, hiking and just about any activity that involves being active in nature.
