Massage Therapy


IMG_7239

Massage Therapy is beneficial in many ways.  Relaxation and  pain reduction are just a few benefits people discover.  I have been practicing as a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 15 years.  I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and am in private practice as a psychotherapist.  Although I cannot do psychotherapy with massage clients and vice versa, I believe that my experience in both allows me to have a unique understanding of the connection between body, mind and emotions.  I typically do deep tissue and relaxation type massage.

I welcome clients who are eager to be healthy and seek Massage Therapy as a part of a balanced approach to health.  Please feel free to contact me through email (betsy@betsydeeter.com) or phone (865-406-2995).  Once we are in touch we will schedule an appointment that works best for both of us.
