Diana Settle, LMT, and owner of Back 2 Basics Massage Therapy, has been practicing massage since the year 2000. After building a steady clientele over the years, she decided to start her own private practice in 2009. Prior to opening her business, Diana had always worked in salons and spas that offered a variety of services-hair, nails, facials, as well as massage. Being a “simplicity lover”, Diana wanted to get “back to basics”, and focus solely on quality, therapeutic, results-oriented massage.
Diana strives to create a safe, comfortable, and relaxing setting, so that clients feel immediately at ease from the moment they step into the office. She loves working together with her clients to achieve their bodywork goals during each session-whether it is to simply relax and unwind with a lighter, more restorative massage, or to really delve into deeper, more focused work to target trouble spots. Her “specialty” is upper body work-head, neck, shoulders, and upper back, as this is such a troublesome area for so many people, and she loves helping them find the relief they have been longing for.
Although Diana has been in practice for nearly 18 years, she continues to pursue more knowledge in her field, through workshops and seminars. Her favorite modality is the Muscle Release Technique (mrtherapy.com). Muscle Release Technique combines massage with stretching, breath, and movement to allow for muscle lengthening, better range of motion, and pain relief from chronic conditions and repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, chronic neck and shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis. She believes this unique, yet common sense approach to bodywork is the key to transformation within the body and getting lasting results.
It is with sincere gratitude that Diana has built up a loyal clientele, as her clients are like family. Her time is dedicated to serving these wonderful clients; therefore, Diana has only a limited amount of timeslots and can accept new clients by referral only at this time.
