Diane, LMT at PalmLeaf Massage Clinic

About Diane

Diane graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 1988 and has been a member of the American Massage Therapy Association for over thirty years. She is a Nationally Certified and Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified in Neuromuscular Therapy and was a Massage Cupping™ Bodywork Therapy Educator for several years.

When she worked with the Chicago School, Diane assisted in various classes while directing the school’s Professional Clinic. Diane has worked in many settings throughout her career, including health clubs, chiropractic, medical offices, and clients’ homes. Diane specializes in working with chronic pain and surgical recovery. Her best work is breaking down scar tissue in a very non-invasive manner while helping clients achieve a better range of motion and relief from pain.

Diane says “I believe that everyone can feel better and helps to educate clients about other treatments or lifestyle choices that contribute to their overall health and wellness. Myofascial Release, Pregnancy Massage, Deep Tissue, Magnetic Niro-cup Reflexology, Face Lifting, and Drainage is just some of the many techniques she offers, along with a bit of occasional energy work as well.”

Before her career in massage, Diane was a Legal Secretary and Medical Staff Secretary. She also is a part-time amateur artist rendering anything with fur or feathers in pastel, charcoal, or pen and ink.
