Although Pro Massage Health Solutions' licensed massage therapists are each trained in multiple modalities, they all specialize in one thing: customizing sessions to suit their clients' needs. They accomplish a truly tailored experience by mixing and matching strokes from their arsenal of approaches. For clients who want a relaxing visit, the staff may focus on Swedish maneuvers. Deep-tissue kneading and the sports modality, alternatively, may be in order for those afflicted with aches and pains.

The therapists happily cater to people with hectic schedules. They offer late appointments and readily render on-location massages by visiting patients’ homes, offices, hotels, and hotel pillow forts supported by stacks of room-service food.

A native of Tennessee, Doctor of Chiropractic Sharon Roth's experience—from designing exercise programs for the elderly in senior homes to serving as chief spinal sleuth for the Nashville Sounds—reflects her ability to help people in all walks of life. While acting as a guest speaker on The Fox Network or when giving public talks, Dr. Roth advocates the importance of receiving chiropractic care, a belief she puts into practice at Roth Wellness. During sessions, she aims to get to the root of patients' issues, rather than merely masking their symptoms with drugs, surgery, or glittery Mardi Gras masks. This involves thorough consultations, exams, and x-rays, before she recommends a wellness plan such as spinal adjustments or therapeutic modalities.
Certified in the Brimhall Technique, Dr. Roth also sets clients on a course to optimum heath with six steps to wellness—structure, electromagnetic therapy, nutrition, emotional therapy, detoxification, and allergies and sensitivities—and maintains her skills in helping patients with conditions such as arthritis, acid reflux, and phobias of phobias by attending continuing-education courses.
