Meet Rochelle Clark, a licensed massage therapist and founder of The Art of Healing Touch in Coeur d’Alene, ID. Rochelle specializes in lymphatic drainage massage and has been in private practice for 22 years. Her journey has been a powerful one of personal growth and development, which continues today.
Rochelle works primarily with women in post-surgical recovery who seek support and relief during the healing process. She is also an integral support for women going through detoxification and gut health challenges. She is a Certified Breast Massage Therapist and offers breast health education and nutritional guidance.
Rochelle has always had an entreprenaurial spirit. She began her journey into holistic health and massage because she loves intimate interaction with people and making a strong difference through therapeutic touch and education.
You invested a lot of time, money and energy into your cosmetic surgery so you could feel more comfortable in your body and your life. Instead, you're experiencing a lot of pain, discomfort and numbness. It's taking a long time to heal, and you're questioning whether you did the right thing because the immediate results are not what you were expecting.
So much of the post-surgery healing process isn't discussed by physicians. After surgery, your body undergoes a long recovery process that cannot be rushed - which can take weeks or months longer than you expected.
Getting back to normal after surgery doesn't have to be a lonely and heartbreaking experience. I became a massage therapist because I love supporting women and empowering them to reach their vision in a very nurturing and caring way. I believe lymphatic massage and essential oils support wellness on a very deep level, and through these modalities, I can help you feel comfortable and alive in your own body.
"Rochelle is a natural healer with a personality that will put your fears at ease and make you feel well taken care of. I had some very painful post-surgical swelling accompanied by bruising. After one treatment of Manual Lymphatic Drainage by Rochelle, both the swelling and the bruising were visible reduced. I went back for more treatments, and each time was able to see improvements. The lymphatic treatments also left me feeling calmer and more hopeful about my healing process. In a difficult, painful and stressful time, I looked forward to my visits with Rochelle as a true healing experience." ~ M.I., Seattle, WA
