MASSAGE THERAPIST, LMT
Charli graduated from Wellspring School of Allied Health March of 2018 and spent her first year trying to find her niche as a Massage Therapist. She believes in treating the body as a whole unit, finding the initial reason for the tissue’s discomfort and offering various ways to help rebuild and heal the body from the inside out.
Philosophy: I take an integrative approach to wellness, incorporating a variety of modalities to help the body relax and exit the fight or flight response while removing adhesions in the tissue simultaneously. My specialty is deep tissue via neuromuscular retraining, utilizing trigger point work, stretching, myofascial release and Craniosacral Therapy. I am also trained in Oncology Massage allowing me the absolute honor of working with an individual who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer, safely and ethically.
Mind/Body Balance: Everything in life is about balance. You balance your work and home life. Kids, family, deadlines, extracurriculars, meetings. I like to slow things down a bit, literally. I work low and slow to take you away from the hustle and bustle of everything bugging you. I also think I’m super funny, so hopefully I help your heart feel lighter after you get off my table, too.
Favorite Treatment: Hands down, Craniosacral Therapy. The first day I walked into the seminar I was completely addicted to how the tissue just melted under a nickels’ worth of pressure. I carry that method into my other deep tissue work, and it is such a game changer for my client’s post massage recovery time. Also, there’s a connection that you make with your client when you work with them so gently, yet so deeply – I like to call it “unraveling the onion of the body”. We find the spots of concern and just start unraveling the facial tissues until you get to the root cause of the bodily dysfunctions. I always sprinkle a little Cranio work into my regular massage work and find that my clients are grateful for the extra TLC that it gives.
