Don Tendler, LMBT
Don received his initial massage therapy training at the Swedish Institute in New York City, which is the oldest established school of massage therapy in the country. After graduating in 1988, he practiced massage in a variety of venues including healthcare facilities, Chiropractic offices and day spas before establishing a private practice in Manhattan.
He moved to the Lake Norman area in 2002, and in June of 2005 opened the doors to Davidson Therapeutic Massage.
Don's focus has always been on utilizing various forms of deep tissue massage. He became certified in the St. John method of Neuromuscular Therapy in 1994. He has also studied other forms of structural bodywork over the years, including Postural Integration, Myofascial Release and Myoskeletal Alignment. He combines these approaches along with his experience in Sports Massage to address a variety of soft tissue injuries, postural stresses and their related myofascial pain patterns.
Megan Coffey, LMBT
I have been a massage therapist for almost seven years now and I love what I do! I got into massage therapy as a way to help people achieve relaxation and healing through working with the muscles of the body. I graduated from the Center for Massage and Natural Health in Asheville and have worked for a large corporate company for a majority of those years. Now I am ready to have the time to really work on clients and have more one on one time to achieve their optimum healing and wellness. I love working with clients who are dealing with TMJ/Headaches/carpel tunnel/ neck and shoulder tension, but I do customize my sessions with Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Lymphatic and Reflexology techniques. There is nothing more satisfying then being able to have a client walk away pain free after a session. I believe in taking care of yourself so you can take care of others. Let me help you take care of you!.
Becky Aijala, LMBT
With 17 years of experience, and training in techniques such as trigger point therapy,
Swedish massage, and energy work, my intention is to provide a detailed massage
session that will meet your needs and help you feel better!
Headaches, shoulder problems, sciatica, carpel tunnel syndrome, and more, often
improve with specific trigger point work, even for some clients who have been told there
is “nothing wrong” but are still experiencing pain. If you need to de-stress or want to
relax, a lighter, more flowing massage sooths milder muscle aches and affects general
well-being – as numerous studies have shown. Many clients enjoy something in
between, taking time to address one or two problem areas along the way.
I was trained to respect and still believe in the healing nature of healthy touch -- no
matter what modality may be used. As Deane Juhan says in his classic work, Job’s
Body, “To touch the surface is to stir the depths.”
