Hey Everyone! I am very pleased to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first child in August of this year! We are so excited and can barely wait for these next three months to go by!
I am also happy to announce that while I am out (I am planning to return!!! ) I have found a wonderful therapist to come in and work at the office a couple of days a week. Her name is Amanda Beresic and you can check out her bio here! There will be more blog posts to update you on her official schedule as that time gets closer. She will be starting a couple of days a week in June. I have known Amanda for a few years now and she is one of the therapists I go to for my own massages. I am confident in her abilities and I think she will be a great fit for this office. From now until the end of July, if you have been to Oak City Massage before, your first visit with Amanda will be like a new client visit and 20% off.
Though she is starting in June, I will continue to work as long as possible, unfortunately it is difficult to say exactly how long that will be at this point. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your understanding during this time of transition for my family and business. You are all awesome!!
Amanda became a licensed massage therapist in 2011 after attending Palm Beach Academy in Lake Park Florida. Prior to this, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Slippery Rock University in 2006. Her passion for Massage Therapy started when a physical therapist recommended massage to help with pain she was experiencing from a neck injury. She realized that whether for pain management or relaxation, massage has so many amazing benefits.
Amanda strongly believes in the benefits of prenatal massage. Having two children of her own, she realizes how one of the happiest times in your life, can also be the most stressful. Pregnancy brings on so many changes, physically and emotionally. The mother is naturally concerned about the baby, but it’s important that she care for herself as well. (Bonus – massage can be beneficial for the mother and the baby!)
Along with prenatal massage, Amanda also does various modalities including swedish, deep tissue and sports massage. Her goal is to make sure your problem areas/concerns are addressed to the best of her ability. She upholds the highest levels of respect and integrity to each individual client.
