Massage Therapy

Edward Cortright, NC Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

Edward pursued a massage bodywork license in order to begin practicing Integrated Manual Therapy (IMT), a holistic approach to addressing physical pain and restrictions. Edward was introduced to IMT when he began to get migraines in the late 1990’s. This subtle therapy helped stop the recurrence of his migraines and initiated his fascination about how this therapy worked. Today he offers IMT and traditional massage therapy to his clients depending on the client’s preferences. Massage offers a deep connection to the muscles, improved circulation, and relief from muscular aches and pain. IMT offers a subtle hands-on approach to persistent and chronic dysfunctions.

Cindy Osborne, NC Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist

Cindy originally studied massage 30-odd years ago, and practiced for a few years before her life took other directions. After moving to WNC, she went back to massage school and has been practicing since early 2017. Cindy’s attentive bodywork will soothe your nervous system and relax your muscles, allowing you to let go of holding patterns and heal from within. Her profoundly relaxing integrative style blends long, slow strokes inspired by the rhythm of the ocean with more focused work, bringing awareness to those areas needing special attention and a sense of well-being to both body and mind. Her continuing education includes the study of chronic pain and working with trauma.
