Josie - Massage Therapist

I recently moved to Killeen from California. My interest in health care began when I was 16 years old; because I have always played sports and have suffered sports injuries. I graduated as a PTA in 2001. In 2003 I decided to get my certification to become a chiropractic assistant and massage therapist. I have had the pleasure to help patients with their health care for 18 years. My specialties are in myofascial release, sports therapy, cranial release, deep tissue, stretching and therapeutic massage. I strongly believe in living a healthy lifestyle through a healthy diet and exercise. The most rewarding part for me as a therapist is being able to make a difference in a patient's health and way of life.
