Meet Our Staff
Hi there! My name is Olivia Edwards. When I was born, my mom said she knew that I was going to heal people! As I grew up, I would massage my mom's neck or feet. I would sit out at recess in elementary school and massage my teachers' hands and shoulders. Everyone was always amazed at the natural and raw talent I had to find knots and work out tension. At the age of 12, I received my first professional massage. It was in this very moment that I told my mother that I knew that I wanted to be a massage therapist. I wanted to make everyone feel as good as I did.
Shortly after graduating from high school, I attended Rising Spirit Institute of Natural Health in Atlanta, Georgia. A short 9 months later, I began my dream career as a massage therapist! I gained much experience over the years working for a variety of massage therapy clinics, spas and chiropractors. I learned several additional modalities, as well. Just when I thought my career life couldn't get any better, I met the love of my life. He dragged me out of Georgia and I settled myself in Topeka, Kansas, where we own and operate Olivia's Therapeutic Massage LLC.
Now, you're probably thinking this "natural born" massage therapist story sounds just like all the others who claim to be born for the industry. You're probably wondering what makes Olivia different and/or better from those others. Well, here it is... I customize every massage session to the unique needs of each individual at that point in time. Most massage therapists tend to give the same massage to every body they work on. My sessions are so unique that a single person will never receive the exact same massage from me twice. In addition to customized massage experiences, the extensive amount of knowledge I have gained over the years allows me to be as meticulous as I need to be to make certain that massage session goals are always met with the best of my ability.
So...Are you ready to schedule that massage you've been needing for forever??? I'm ready to help you feel your best. See you soon :)
