PEGGY MEIER, LMT
Peggy has been a massage therapist since 2000. She is trained in the following modalities: Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Repetitive Use Injury, and Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage. Her goal as a therapist is to use all of her tools to give her clients the best care.
In 2011 Peggy was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. She fought hard while receiving all of her treatment and was fortunate to have a great support system. While fighting for her chance to keep living, she took a good look at her life and decided she was working too much and not enjoying life enough. She gave up her massage business, but it didn't last very long.
Peggy found a modality that really hit home with her called Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD). MLD is used to help cancer survivors who suffer from lymph edema due to their cancer treatment. She felt as if this was her calling, to help people living with the side effects of having cancer. What she didn't realize is that MLD helps with so much more, including relief of chronic pain, sinus issues, low energy and a weakened immune system.
To read more about these benefits please go to Peggy’s website betterlifemassage.net. MLD has become a very powerful tool in Peggy's massage arsenal.
Peggy chose to learn the Dr. Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage, as it is the most extensive program available in North America. It is also the only program that teaches the original, unadulterated version of the Vodder technique. One must complete 160 hours of initial training, as well as many hours of continuing education, to ensure the integrity of the methodology.
Peggy believes that Massage Therapy is a wonderful part of health and wellness. She knows that tight muscles can lead to postural problems and then chronic pain sets in. Getting a massage on a regular basis can help correct those issues and ensure the pain stays away.
