Licensed massage therapist Janet Shelton has been giving massages “since before I can remember,” she says. At first, these were mostly casual sessions for her twin sister, who “was born asking for a massage.” But as Shelton grew up, she came to take her hobby more seriously. Coming from a family of nurses, she “always want[ed] to do something to help people,” and with its positive impacts on injury recovery, therapeutic massage seemed to fit the bill.
Since then, Shelton has supplemented her massage-therapy license with work experience in chiropractic offices and spas. Depending on a client’s needs, she can perform an active clinical massage with stretching and feedback or gently knead for a soothing, quiet experience. No matter the modality, clients can bring in their own music on an iPod and breathe in the scents of botanical oils Shelton blends by hand.
