We use hot stones in almost all of our work - this adds heat to the tissue and is extremely relaxing and enjoyable.
Denise Lanigan LMT, ABMP, NCBTMB
I graduated from Westminster College in 1997 with degrees in Biology and Environmental Science. I worked for an Environmental Engineering firm for about 3 years before I realized that Corporate America and I were not a good fit. I returned to school, this time the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy, and graduated in 2002 with an Advanced Massage Therapy certification which included training in Neuromuscular (Trigger Point), Myofascial Release and Sports. I acquired my national certification (NCBTMB) shortly after I graduated.
My pre-med college background, as well as my personal love of sports, made the transition from 'normal' to 'medical/rehab/sports' bodywork an easy one. I continued with certifications in Lymphatic Drainage (Upledger Institute, 2003), Orthopedic Massage and Pain Management (James Waslaski, 2003), Orthopedic Assessment (Whitney Lowe, 2008), and Medical Massage (National Board Certification Agency, 2009). I am currently studying to become a Corrective Exercise Specialist (National Academy of Sports Medicine) as well as my ongoing study of Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (Erik Dalton).
Nathan is a 2007 graduate of the Career Training Academy in Pittsburgh, PA. He is a licensed massage therapist in PA, and is a professional member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP). Before entering the world of massage therapy, Nathan studied classical percussion at the Cleveland Institute of Music in Cleveland, OH. Some of his very first massage clients were fellow music students who wanted to prevent the acquisition of repetitive-strain injuries, and/or wanted to combat the stress associated with being an aspiring artist.
During his massage career, Nathan has worked at a variety of locations, including Russ Medical and Sport Massage Clinic, Massage Envy, Salon Vivace, Harmony Day Spa, and WellCare Medical Associates. While he specializes in Sports, Orthopedic, and Deep Tissue massages, Nathan is also fluent in Relaxation, Hot Stone, and other spa modalities.
