about

WENDY

Wendy is a working mom and gigi. Her family is the most important to her. She has a bachelor’s in mathematics and is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Florida. She received her BS at UWF in 2005 and has been practicing massage since 1997. She has had an interest in health and wellness since high school. While in college she has taken several health and nutrition related classes to compliment her experience in massage, and is only two classes away from having a minor in community health. Wendy is also a Certified Aromatherapist and Family Herbalist and is working on completing her course work in Clinical Master Herbalism. Much of the herbalism has not been accepted by the FDA, but it can be found in the equivalent which is the German Commission E.  She also practices Microcurrent Point Stimulation and cupping.  Her primary focus is to help people manage their stress whether it is due to their diet, home, work, environment, etc. and help them to recognize what causes their stress, then give them the tools to manage it.  With her math degree she is able to see patterns in people's behavior and help them recognize it and make modifications.  

She was one of 170 out of 500+ chosen to be on the Athens Health Services Sports Massage Team 2004 at the 2004 Summer Games. It was an honor and privilege for her to be chosen to serve on the team. She will remain lifelong friends with her comrades from that experience. She and her teammates worked for about 3 weeks straight serving the athletes, their coaches, and others to improve their performance, healing time, and equalize the competition between the larger and smaller nations.

Wendy was recognized in 2016 by her peers from the FSMTA and was awarded Sports Massage Therapist of the Year. She also was the first FSMTA Advanced Sports Massage Instructor at the 2018 National Massage Convention in Orlando, FL.  Also in 2016 she began working with the Air Force Wounded Warrior Team and helped them compete at the 2016 Warrior Games at West Point Military Academy in West Point, NY. She turned down an offer to work at the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games to work with AFW2 at their camps for the Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) Program. One of the services she provided was teaching the Wounded Warriors how to properly and safely use essential oils for PTSD, anxiety, depression and many other issues which are common in that population.  She worked with AFW2 until 2020 when COVID-19 put everything to a hault.

She has also massaged at the Ironman Triathlon and Gulf Coast Triathlon in Panama City Beach, Florida since 1999. She and her friends from these venues have a close bond as well, some of whom were chosen to be on the Athens Health Services Sports Massage Team 2004. The athletes who compete at the Ironman have to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run 26.2 miles in weather that ranges from hot and humid in the afternoon to quite chilly and breezy at night. So those who come in after dark are at risk to hypothermia. Dehydration is the other major concern at this event. She had been the massage director for Ironman Florida for several years, and her teammates welcomed her with a great deal of support. She also had the privilege of being asked to go to Kona, HI and massage one of her clients while he competed at the Ironman World Championships.

Now she is closing her business to begin a career working for the Air Force providing massage to the F-35 pilots and their crew.  Therefore she is closing her businesses physical location and going virtual and on-line.
