Welcome! My name is Whitney Perkins. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of North Carolina. I graduated from The Medical Arts School in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2013. I love massage and the many benefits that it provides. I am certified in many modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, and trigger point therapy.
When I first started massage therapy I only thought it was for relaxation purposes and a hiatus from the craziness however, through learning and feeling the effects I know it is much more! For many years I have always suffered from shoulder and back pain and just took a pain reliever in order to get through the day and that was my pain management. However, that is not best for our bodies. With massage it has helped me manage my pain and also use different corrective actions in order to reduce the pain that I feel, and it has really helped! Now, anytime I feel a slight pain or discomfort in my shoulders I know that it's probably because I've been sitting down too long at my desk for 8 hours looking at my computer screen when I should have gotten up and stretched a bit. Now, I am more aware and I know what I can do better and also I see my massage therapist to help. Yes, I have a massage therapist too! Massage is a great way not only to get away and relax but to relieve that built up stress, pain and discomfort within our bodies. These days and in this world with all the jobs and responsibilities we have, massage is not just a luxury it is a necessity. So I hope that I will get to see you soon so that you too can feel some relief to that pain and discomfort within your body.
See you soon,
