As an avid cyclist and licensed massage therapist, Liz Oehmen understands the discomfort that can be felt in the legs and hips. This personal experience, combined with her continuous pursuit of knowledge in her field, makes her uniquely suited to soothe aches at Sore No More Massage.

When Oehmen isn’t performing massages, she tends to clients with services such as manicures, body wraps, and ear candling. She also supports overall health by teaching raw-food-preparation and hula-hooping classes.
