Although new to Body By Design, Page is by no means new to the practice of massage. She graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy in 1995, and her experience is evident in her work. Always having a therapeutic focus, Page practiced on family & friends early in her new profession. A few years later she settled in at a studio in Seven Fields, where she served 16 years as a full time therapist before joining the team at Body by Design. Throughout her career, Page has added to her education by pursuing aspects of bodywork that both interested her and would prove most useful for her clients. Among those studies are Reflexology, Active Isolated Stretching, Myofascial Release, Pregnancy Massage, Aromatherapy, and especially Ortho-Bionomy. Page will soon be getting her Associates Certification in Ortho-Bionomy, a gentle, positional release technique that allows her to address the deeper muscular problem and imbalances that can create some our most chronic problems like lower back issues, knee issues, shoulder issues and more. What was your answer the last time someone asked how you were feeling? If the answer wasn’t “Fabulous!” ...it’s time for a massage.
