Massage Therapist

Holly Yahraus has 14 years Massage Therapy experience with 8 years in private practice. She provides professional massage therapy for chronic pain, rehabilitation, pre and post surgical, and pre and post sports events with muscle specific work. She specializes in Medical Massage and also offers Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage and Swedish Massage to her patients along with integrating Myofascial Release (MFR), Neural Reflex Therapy (NRT), CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and Kinesio Taping. She enjoys the process of taking her patients through the rehabilitation process from start to finish using very specific muscle and tissue work to achieve healing and restoration to muscles, tissues, tendons and ligaments.

Mission Statement:

To offer superior massage and bodywork therapy with muscle specific work in order to DECREASE CHRONIC PAIN and INCREASE MOBILITY for daily stress, pre and post surgical procedures (treated during or after Physical Therapy), and pre and post sporting events in a fun, relaxing atmosphere.

Why I do What I do:

I enjoy helping people out of pain. I want clients to leave feeling better than when they came in. I feel confidant that I can help them through massage therapy. Some issues can't be corrected with bodywork alone, so we refer to Doctors, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors and Athletic trainers to provide a wellness team to support specific needs.

Because sometimes, it does take a team! :D
