Melissa “Missy” Bauman
I am a 2010 graduate of Lakewood School of Therapeutic Massage. I have been a massage therapist with Shaw Chiropractic since January of 2012. I love being able to provide each patient with an individualized massage. Every massage is different. Each session varies from patient to patient and also from massage to massage with the same patient. Often times the patient will express their concerns and then say, “Whatever you think.” I value the trust the patient has in me the most. Whether it’s a relaxing therapeutic massage or a deep tissue, trigger-point therapy I try to ensure the patient feels better leaving than when they arrived.
