Licensed Massage Therapist and Medical Massage Practitioner
Owner of Inspired Hands by Lori
This may sound crazy, but after being out of school for 20+ years, I decided to go back to school in 2009 to become a massage therapist. I was not sure I could handle the homework and studying while holding a full time job, but with God's help and direction, I did it! I am so glad I did. I now have a career I enjoy and won't have to call it 'work.'
In November 2010, I completed over 900 hours of intense instruction at the YTI Capital Region Campus in Mechanicsburg, PA, where I received distinguished academic honors. My studies included a 3-month internship at the YTI Capital Region Wellness Clinic as part of the coursework where I gave over 100 massages to staff, students, and the general public. In June 2011, I became licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and NCBTMB nationally certified.
The mission of Inspired Hands by Lori is to provide serene, relaxed, self-rejuvenation through therapeutic massage. During your time with me, it is my wish that you can focus on discovering, or rediscovering, your inner peace and balance in today's busy lifestyle.
To get to know me personally is not hard. I am a people person, enjoy crocheting, love animals, and have a deep love of horses. I bought my first horse Lady Jane in 1988 and, in 1990, bought my second horse Allie. I had both for about 9 months, then I sold Lady Jane. Allie was 6 when I bought her and had her until she was 22. Since 2006, I have not owned any, but have a very strong desire to get back into the horse world. I will be taking a certification for equine massage in the very near future so I can combine my love of horses with my desire to enable and promote healing through massage, both in humans and animals.
My sincere wish is that your expectations are met, the massage made you feel better than you felt when you walked in, and that you have found honesty and integrity, with an overflowing genuine care and concern for your wellbeing. This is a place where you can truly relax, renew, revive, and rejuvenate!
