Wilda Sanchez, LMT
I attended Cleveland State University where I graduated in 2000 with a Bachelors in Science in Nursing. Since then, I have worked as a nurse in the greater Cleveland area. I have experience working with medical, surgical, chemical dependency, and gastrointestinal patients. I attended Cuyahoga Community College where I graduated with a degree in Massage Therapy. I have been a massage therapist since 2006. I have worked in a spa and as an independent contractor for various companies doing chair and table massages. I perform different modalities, ranging from relaxation, couples, therapeutic, deep, and stone massage. I am also a reiki practitioner in which I work with healing energy. I do believe that using different modalities for massage can help to provide a more holistic healing of the body. I have always had a passion towards helping others. I love to teach others that there are alternative options of healing that can vastly improve and optimize their day to day living standards. I get to know my clients to understand what works best for their ailments. I take the most pride when I can help those who have been dealing with chronic ailments find comfort from the service that I provide for them. I look forward to this new chapter of educating clients on the benefits that massage therapy can have in their lives.
