Megan became interested in massage at a young age. When she was seven or eight years old, her family and some close friends took a trip around the coast of Australia. Each night they camped, ate camp food and swapped stories. During this time, she gave each person a quick shoulder massage. Later, in middle school, she went on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where she worked with a Physical Therapist for a week. She witnessed people getting off the table filled with joy at how much better they felt.
She continued her dream of working in the healthcare field by going to school in Asheville, NC for Health and Wellness Promotion. While there, Megan played D1 college soccer, interned in Physical Therapy clinics, and gained experience in the strength and conditioning field. After graduating, she spent a short time overseas playing soccer for the top league in Denmark. When she returned, she did multiple internships in physical fitness and obtaining a strength and conditioning coach certification.
Megan is a graduate of the Florida School of Massage. Before graduating she took continuing education in scar tissue management, manual ligament therapy, and how to help the body self-correct and heal. Her favorite technique to use is Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT). Along with sports massage and traditional deep tissue, MLT can be very effective in helping the body self-regulate. This technique helps reduce overall tension in the tissue because the receptors in the ligaments talk to the muscle, tendons, and fascia, telling them to relax. It does not require very much pressure, so this technique can be used on almost any person, even if their pain is new and intense.
Outside of Massage, you can find Megan playing soccer, outdoors, hiking, biking, or trying something new. She also enjoys woodworking, creating things, reading, researching health-related topics, or playing with her dog.
