Ballard
Andrea Kent, LMT
Andrea was originally a dancer (ballet, modern, and ballroom instructor), and athlete (competitive volleyball). Massage was instrumental in her recovery from her injuries, and she is now dedicated to helping others recover from their injuries and living life fully.

Andrea graduated from the Brian Utting School of Massage in 1998. After graduating, she became certified in advanced craniosacral work, with over 1000 hours of training. Andrea also has advanced training in movement therapies, injury treatment, and self-care education.

Health is a balance of support and ease, and both are skills that can be learned and refined. My job is to remind you, the client, of skills you already have, that can directly enliven your health today, and long-term. I believe that participating in your overall health and well-being is creative, effective, and worthwhile.

Proficient in the following Modalities: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy (Trigger Point), Myofascial Release, Myokinesthetics (MYK), Pregnancy, Swedish, and Deep Tissue


Chantz Richards, LMT
I am a recent graduate from Bastyr University, where I earned my Doctorate of Naturopathic medicine. I have long been passionate about Integrative Medicine and plan to one day open my own clinic where I can provide quality health care to those in need. I began my scholastic career attending Northern Arizona University in 2007 and went on to earn a specialized Bachelors degree in Biomedical Science. While attending school there, I also became a Certified Personal Trainer and began working with clients. Upon learning about Naturopathic Medicine from my Chiropractor, I immediately felt that this was my calling and was later accepted to Bastyr University. During my first year I also began massage school, soon becoming a Licensed Massage Practitioner. Passionate about the concept of healing touch and the importance of being present with each patient, I began to work part time practicing massage while completing my medical degree. Modalities that I have training in that I typically incorporate into my massage sessions include deep tissue, Swedish massage, Myofascial release, Trigger point therapy, Muscle Energy Technique, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, prenatal and sports massage.

=- Among being a Licensed Massage Practitioner, Chantz Richards maintains his Personal Trainer certification and is available for private consultation.

I'm a licensed massage practitioner (graduated from the extended program at Cortiva Institute of Seattle) with specialties in pre-and perinatal (pregnancy) massage and pediatrics. Within pediatrics I’m certified to teach infant massage classes and I'm certified to work with typically developing children, children suffering from trauma, and autistic children. I'm also certified in pediatric facial balancing for ages 0-7 months. I received my training from the Liddle Kidz foundation, IAIM, and Crafted Touch, inc. I primarily utilize myofascial and neuromuscular techniques and when appropriate I incorporate the modest amount of structural integration and craniosacral therapy that I know.

La’Tina Rainwater, LMT
I start my massages by getting to know your body and what it likes to do vs what/where you would like it to be. I tend to have a firmer touch with my massage when working in tight/troublesome areas.

Deep Tissue, MFR, Prenatal, Swedish


Leisha Diane, LMT
Leisha's approach is gentle, subtle, and deep. She uses a range of soft-tissue techniques along with very gentle non-thrusting joint decompression work. This helps to release joint fixations and improve tissue health and function. She likes to combine this with Craniosacral techniques to help improve vitality and strengthen inner resources. Strengthening inner resources helps to reduce stress and fatigue, and facilitates long lasting health and healing.
