Betty Waldon’s journey into massage therapy began after her family was involved in a terrible car accident. Her injuries required medication, but Betty soon realized she couldn’t take the prescribed medication and work at the same time. When visits to the chiropractor couldn’t release the stiff muscles in her neck, she visited a massage therapist at the suggestion of a friend. Betty started noticing a difference after several sessions and paid close attention to how the masseuse worked the muscles. She tried some of the techniques on her son who felt almost immediate relief; breathing without pain for the first time since the accident.
Betty was ecstatic that she could help her son and wanted to help others facing pain, injury or discomfort. She enrolled in Advanced Massage Therapeutic of Louisville and graduated in 2001.
Betty listens to her clients and is able to tailor her therapeutic techniques to give clients the best massage.
