Licensed Massage Therapist 006932
Natalie's skill and strength in her hands were developed in her former life as a journey-level carpenter with Carpenter's Local 1664 in Bloomington, Indiana. Both have served her well as a massage therapist.
After moving to Athens, Georgia, she continued work as a carpenter. But the economy had different plans for Natalie. She says, "I only left carpentry because the economy forced it, but it was the best thing that could have happened (the whole one door closes and another opens thing)." She began to think about massage therapy and discovered the Athens Institute for Massage was within walking distance of her home. When she went to talk to them, she quickly developed a rapport with the director.
Natalie says, "Once I got started, it was a perfect fit; I devoured the information and I've never looked back. I love massage because it helps people in whatever way they need help; from physical discomfort to emotional stress to spiritual and soulful needs. I can't see myself doing any other work. Massage has allowed me to meet incredible people."
She offers Swedish relaxation massage, deep tissue massage, CranioSacral therapy, Bowen therapy and reflexology. Natalie is also a Reiki Master Practitioner and a Certified Personal Trainer.
Her passion for massage explains why a large percentage of her work is from repeat business.
