Brandie | TPC Stretchologist
Brandie has been pursuing a career in the healing arts since high school. With a background in nursing, Brandie’s interest in alternative approaches to pain management and disease prevention was fueled by her own experience as a survivor of breast cancer. During her cancer treatment, Brandie found acupuncture, Reiki, and massage therapy to be more effective with managing her chemotherapy side effects than pain medication. Since then, Brandie has lead others down a path to wellness as a certified personal trainer, nutritionist, yoga, and Pilates instructor. Additionally, she has a mastery of Reiki therapy, holds a license in massage therapy from East West Collage, and is a certified Doula.
At TPC, Brandie works with patients through massage therapy, focusing on deep tissue massage, prenatal massage, Swedish massage, and dynamic cupping modalities. She is also available for assisted stretching as a TPC Stretchologist, utilizing PNF stretching to help patients gain more flexibility and joint mobilization.
When Brandie is not at TPC, she a practicing doula, personal trainer, yoga teacher, childbirth educator, lactation consultant, and nutritional therapist. She even has time to throw on her running shoes, hike with her husband and children, knit, read, and make music. If you can’t find her pursuing these activities, you’ll catch her in her medicinal herb garden growing a personal apothecary.
“I love massage. To me, massage isn’t a service; it’s an experience. I try to help all of my clients feel empowered by deciding their path of healing and helping them take that path. I help them to maintain control of their care and work to teach them that as a healer, my job is to encourage and support them on their journey, but that I am not healing them; I am simply helping them to heal themselves.”
