Rebecca has been a licensed massage therapist since 2012. Her interest in massage started at an early age and she has a natural talent for finding hidden knots and working them out. Rebecca got her start in bodywork after spending a year overseas at Capernwray Bible School, where she became known among the staff and students as “the massage guru”. After a year of giving multiple neck and shoulder massages a day, she decided it was time to get some training so she could be more effective at relieving pain.
Rebecca trained in the medical massage program at University of Western States where she received 750 hours of training in anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, ethics and communication as well as in various forms of massage including relaxation, deep tissue, sports and rehabilitation massage, pregnancy massage, and massage for cancer patients. Since then, she has focused her continuing education on how to treat conditions of the head and neck such as whiplash, headaches and TMJ dysfunction and she has added fire cupping, scraping, and intraoral techniques to her massage skills.
Rebecca is a native of Oregon and, when she isn’t at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, hanging out with family and friends, exploring the world, baking, and reading.
Lindsay has been receiving chiropractic treatments since 2000, and started working as a chiropractic assistant for Dr. Waggoner in 2009. She loved that her “seek and destroy” massages combined with the Doctor’s adjustments caused people to walk away feeling like a brand new person. After some encouragement, she attended the massage program at University of Western States and became a Licensed Massage Therapist in May of 2012.
While in school, she gained experience working with the elderly, cancer patients receiving treatments and their families, as well as the general population. During this period of time, she was in two motor vehicle accidents, which helps her empathize with people who have also been in accidents and know how best to attend to their needs. Lindsay is a great candidate for giving deep tissue and therapeutic massage, with a calm and considerate attitude toward her patients.
In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys hanging out with her husband, daughter, family, and close friends as well as watching movies, playing games, singing, dancing, and going on adventures all over the world.
Jolene has been a licensed massage therapist since 2012. She was introduced to both chiropractic and massage as a teenager, seeking care for injuries sustained in a car accident. She found that she enjoyed the hands on approach to healthcare and was impressed by the relief she got after treatments. After a time, she decided that studying massage would be the best way for her to be able to help others feel well and help them achieve goals and milestones for healthy living.
Jolene chose the University of Western States medical massage program because she wanted to learn focused techniques and to work as a part of a healthcare team, in order to give patients their best results. While in school, she was especially drawn to sports massage and deep tissue techniques and became very good at light pressure deep tissue techniques. She believes working smarter rather than harder is the best approach to getting the desired results and she is the perfect LMT for anyone looking for effective results without (as much) pain and suffering. Since finishing school she has added fire cupping and scraping to her massage skills.
When she isn’t working, Jolene loves spending time with her husband, her cat, and her family, as well as trying new recipes, working on her fitness, drinking tea with a good book in hand, and most of all she has a passion for burritos.
Kaitlyn has always loved helping others feel better. She first experienced chiropractic in Jr. High after getting whiplash on a trampoline. She received so much relief, that she continued to receive chiropractic as she got older. She started seeing Dr. Waggoner for treatment while in high school and in 2016 she joined our office as a chiropractic assistant. She quickly showed a natural talent for massage in addition to a desire to learn new skills and in 2017 she started looking into different massage schools so she could follow her passion.
She trained at East West College of the Healing Arts and where she learned a wide variety of massage techniques and gained a deeper understanding of the human body. While in school she found she was most attracted to deep tissue techniques, trigger point therapy, and Thai inspired massage techniques. Since leaving school she has learned fire cupping and gua sha and she has continued to develop her Thai massage skills, which she hopes to implement into her practice in 2020.
When Kaitlyn isn’t at work she enjoys spending time with her dog and her family and enjoys a variety of activities ranging from relaxing in the great outdoors to crafting and watching sports. She has a special love for animals and loves to take care of other people’s pets.
