Massage therapist Liz Schiel knows a thing or two about stress and the human body. Aside from holding a certification from the California Massage Therapy Council and a membership with the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, she holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Athletic Training from Miami University. She also served as a student athletic trainer for the 2008 MAC Champion Women's Basketball team, where she helped assess and prevent injuries during the team's journey to the NCAA Women's Tournament.
Today, as owner of Inner Balance Therapeutic Massage, Liz puts her vast experience to good use during athletic conditioning or rehabilitation massages, which can help to release spasms and strains and prevent injury during all types of athletic activities. But athletes aren't the only ones who benefit from her skills??she also doles out relaxation-focused Swedish massages, deep tissue massages, and hot or cold stone therapies, which use basalt stones to melt tension and keep newly lightened muscles from floating away. Liz also holds certification in cupping and offers several different styles of the centuries-old technique, which relies on suction created with a special cup that helps loosen connective tissues, stimulate pressure points, and reduce inflammation.
