My name is Missy Travis. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master/Teacher, aromatherapist, an intuitive, an empath, and medicine woman. I have been practicing therapeutic massage since 2005 when I graduated from the Natural Health Institute in Nashville, TN. I have also received certification as a Holistic Health Coach by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and I am Reiki Master/Teacher in the Usui/Ryoho Tibetan Tradition.
I provide an intuitive healing massage, using a combination of modalities that includes deep tissue massage, Myofascial Release, Swedish massage, Reiki, shamanism, and aromatherapy, just to name a few. On the physical level massage releases the tensions, stress, stiffness, and pain built up in your muscles. On a more subtle level, Reiki and Aromatherapy help to release those things that are no longer serving you; this could be memories, beliefs, expectations, grief, etc. By working on the multiple levels of your being you are promoting a deeper, longer lasting healing for your body, mind and spirit. Issues that I work on more than anything else are: computer/smartphone neck and shoulder issues, migraines and chronic headaches, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back and hip pain and stiffness. I work on a multitude of other issues but, these are the ones I tend to see more than any other issues. When doing massage, I begin by getting a feel of where you are at physically, mentally and spiritually. I use all the information I acquire to develop a session that is customized just for you. You may receive one or more of all the modalities I am familiar with. Essential oils and crystals are added as needed. I believe that good communication is the key to a good healing session, you are encouraged to tell me your likes, dislikes, what you are feeling, emotions, etc. Expressing yourself verbally is also a good form of release and promotes healing. I will also communicate by telling you what it is I am feeling in your muscles and energy field. All of the healing you receive is also supported through nutrition and health coaching. As a Health Coach, I specialize in stress management. I provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you. My favorite past time is kayaking. I love it so much that I've turned it into a part time job. Want to learn how to kayak and how it can help you manage your stress, increase your activity level and create a peaceful state of mind? Then I'm just the person you've been looking for. Everything I do is oriented around stress management. Come let me show you what i do.
