Background

Massage therapy has been an excellent preventive care treatment for Althea for almost 15 years. She began receiving massage regularly while in the military to combat the constant stress and strain she was putting on her body. She chose alternative methods in place of surgery and muscle relaxants. Additionally she added chiropractic care and acupuncture treatment to sustain her lifestyle.

As a former police officer and helicopter pilot she recognizes the importance of managing everyday life stresses. Althea is a graduate of Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in Charleston, S.C. She has worked at Natural Health Center since 2003.

She uses a variety of techniques to address soft tissue problems to complement the chiropractic and acupuncture treatments offered at Natural Health Center.
