Who I Am and What I Do

 

My name is Raven Smith.

I'm passionate about massage therapy because it positively impacts my community by reducing pain and stress. It's an art and science that challenges me both mentally and physically. I graduated massage school in 2009 and have since gained certifications in various modalities, including deep tissue, sports, prenatal, cancer, and lymphatic drainage, among others.

 

With over 10 years of practice, I've worked in many environments, including spas, a pain center, a PT clinic, a chiropractic clinic, and others. I'm proud to provide adaptable, competent services and have won multiple customer service and satisfaction awards.

 

My fascination with anatomy and biology sets my technique apart. I'm committed to applying skilled and knowledgeable massage techniques to address your needs, whether it's stress relief or targeted pain management.

 

I choose to only engage with massage technique philosophies that have a strong evidentiary basis, ensuring my approach is grounded in science and proven methods. If I encounter something I'm not familiar with, I'm not afraid to say "I don't know" and will quickly find answers to your massage-related questions.

 

My interests are diverse and ever-changing, from card games to business development, math, anatomy, cephalopods, engineering, history, and more. I enjoy reading, exercising, eating, and spending time with my partner.

 

I am fascinated by the human body and dedicated to reducing pain and stress. Book an appointment with me for a massage from someone who genuinely loves their job.
