         Meet our Therapists

    Center of Balance massage therapists are all professionally trained, experienced, and licensed by the State of Tennessee to practice massage therapy. Each has his/her own unique style of massage, including variances in the amount of pressure used, the rhythm and cadence of a session, and particular areas of extra training and expertise. You may request a specific therapist when you schedule, or, if you're not sure, just let us know what your therapy goals are, and we'll place you with the therapist who will best fit your needs and schedule.
