Rockford Massage Therapist Lynne


Lynne – Massage Therapist

Lynne’s interest in massage therapy grew out of her ten years of experience as an occupational therapist, where she discovered the power of massage to relieve pain and improve function in her clients.

She enjoyed homeschooling her seven children and discovered a passion for teaching. She furthered her education by attending the Institute for Sanative Arts and becoming licensed as a massage therapist. This allowed her to use the power of touch to heal, and fulfil her passion for teaching by assisting her clients in maintaining their own health and well-being.
