Hello All! Welcome back to the blog page. Thank you for visiting. What a blessing it has been to work with Angelia Hardesty as our new lead massage therapist. She has been a rock building the massage therapy program in the clinic and this area of practice has grown like it has never before. Angel is committed, respectful, and truly appreciates every client she meets. Hands down, the best massage therapist I have ever worked with. Angel lives here in Burnsville with her future spouse and two beautiful children aged four and six months. As a therapist she is happy to be working with patients in their chiropractic care. Serving patients from Burnsville, Apple Valley, Rosemount, Lakeville, Bloomington, Savage, and Prior Lake Angel has expanded her knowledge of massage therapy with all of the new cases she took on when I hired her in April of this year. Car accident care and massage therapy go hand in hand. Soft tissue injuries are a priority at South Metro Wellness Clinic and massage therapy is almost always recommended as part of the treatment plan. This was a big challenge for Angel as cases like this were not prevalent in her previous employment. Being the doctor who supervises her work, I can tell you I have all of the faith in the world in her ability to be versatile with her skill set in serving our patients. Angel works full time in the practice but when she is not working she enjoys reading books, (15 a year in fact!), taking her children to parks and reading to them, visiting her family out of state, and of course supporting Dr. Rankin🙂 When patients are asked how they would describe Angel they say- “thorough, realistic, professional, smart” I certainly expect great things from Angel as she grows in her role as a leader in Burnsville Massage Therapy.
