Sherrie Templeton Massage Therapy
Licensed massage therapist Sherrie Templeton was just 14 when she saw the healing benefits of massage firsthand. After being turned down by a back surgeon, her father turned to massage to overcome his symptoms, finding relief that eventually weaned him from pain medications and restored his ability to function. “It made quite an impression,” she says, “the idea that someone could correct the problem with just hands when the surgeon wasn't able to fix the problem by cutting.”
That belief in the clinical power of massage permeates Templeton's own practice inside Mountain View Chiropractic, where she tailors Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages to each client's unique aches and concerns. Templeton also believes massage can transcend physical benefits, as it can also help to lift the mental burden brought on by stress and thoughts about sandbags. “There is an almost spiritual connection between the therapist and the client," she says. "There's a transfer of energy, there's a release, so you can just close your eyes and allow someone else to take on your stresses and discomforts for an hour. People need that in this culture.”
