Owner and Licensed Massage Therapist LMBT #14566
Brenda Graduated from Miller Motte College with a Diploma in Massage
Therapy November 2014, received her massage therapy license January
30th, 2015 and opened Healing Hands Body Therapy on Feb 1st 2015.
Many creative, worthwhile projects arise from fulfilling a self interest. In
Brenda’s case, the pursuit of her education in massage therapy arose
from her strong desire to help her husband with the injuries sustained
throughout his military career.
Medical massage became her passion when she realized massage can
be so much more than just a relaxation session and was jump starting
healing for her husband’s ailments. She then expanded her practice to
serve an ailing military and civilian clientele. Brenda boosted her training
by earning certifications in both Medical Massage and Advanced
Myofascial Therapy. She is the 9th person in NC to be certified in Nerual
Reset Therapy and is currently studying cranial somatic therapy.
Brenda’s intentions are to help as many of you who are in pain, or know
of someone in pain, to find relief and develop a healthier path for your
physical well being. She’ll be the first to tell you how satisfying that is,
“Starting and building this business has been a wonderful roller-
coaster ride and nothing beats the look on a client’s face who gets up
from my table feeling worlds better.”
Healing Hands Medical Massage Team
Made up of Brenda, Lydia, Jess, Sarah and our Office Manager,
Emily who is a remarkable young woman. She is a student, actress and
she organizes and directs our office. When you first contact and speak
with anyone at our center, Emily will most likely be the one who helps
you. She’ll make the connection between what you need and who will
be able to best help you. As creative as she is in her acting, she is
equally a linear thinker who organizes the office, keeps track of all the
details and allows all of our therapists to continue to study and train and
help you, our clients, live a better, healthier and happier life.
Sarah is the newest Administration member of the team. She loves her
time spent at the beach or in the mountains with her two dogs, Scarlet
and Bacon. She also enjoys staying active at the gym and skydiving.
Sarah’s next mission is to get scuba certified so she can dive with the
Great White Sharks in South Africa.
Licensed Massage Therapist LMBT #5590
Lydia graduated from Sandhills Community College in 2003 and
has been licensed since 2005.
Lydia helps people to fulfill their varied medical massage needs.
These may range from sports massage to chronic pain relief and
in specific areas including soft tissue and joint pain. The technique
she uses is very tuned in to how you perceive what the massage
should be, which will determine exactly what her intention of energy
will be for you.
This will dictate the rhythm of the massage which will be different for
a sports massage, deep tissue massage and a pain relief massage.
There is a shift of energy based on your need. So the ultimate goal
during the massage session is to achieve a symmetry and balance
between patient and therapist which will deter pain and facilitate the
healing process. Lydia is passionate about helping you live healthier
