Registered Massage Therapist Andrea Marshall

Andrea Marshall RMT

Registered Massage Therapist, Owner

I graduated in 2005 from the 3000 hour Registered Massage Therapy program. After college I came back to my hometown to begin the next chapter of my life where I worked at a multidisciplinary clinic for almost 5 years before opening my own clinic in 2011.
Since opening my own clinic I have not only grown my business but have grown my family with 2 wonderful children. Now that I have successfully outgrown my first location I am happy to have the clinic I have always dreamed of owning and working in.

I have a career that I am very passionate about and love to work with others that are like-minded. I have enjoyed the clinic setting as well as the field experience as Trainer for the V.I. Raiders Football Team since 2006, where I performed First Aid as well as my expertise as a RMT.

I have also worked with other local teams such as the Senior A Timbermen Lacrosse Team.
I am dedicated to help patients reach their optimal tissue health by understanding all that is involved and educating my patients.

I truly believe that working as a team with other Health Care Practitioners and Certified Trainers to fully develop and implement the best treatment plan will help each individual person successfully have balance in all aspects of their life.

I aim to provide focused treatments for each individual and enjoy developing an understanding of clients daily activities and body goals. Using a verity of modalities and working with light to deep pressure my goal is to facilitate improved movement to help clients take back control and comfort of their body.
