Licensed Massage Therapist
Nate Cravener began his massage therapy career in 2009, with the intention of helping and supporting others though the stress of everyday life. His greatest inspiration comes from his own personal experiences that have shifted his life into the joy it is today.
At a very young age, Nate developed a strong, hard work ethic. He apprenticed with his father, who was a carpenter/builder, skilled in all trades. Construction work is demanding of the body, especially when working outdoors, in Virginia’s diverse seasonal elements. Nate’s work consisted of climbing ladders, walking roofs, manually excavation digging ditches, and all aspects of building homes. This reference allows Nate to easily have compassion for his clients when they struggle with pain. After 15 years in the construction field, Nate knew it was time for a change in his life. With the help of yoga/stretching, nutrition and the pursuit of a positive soulful life Nate found a way to restore his body, cleanse his mind and heal his spirit.
Attending the Virginia School of Massage gave Nate the valuable knowledge needed to truly understand the dynamics of the human body. Opening to the awareness that there is so much we have yet to discover about our anatomy, Nate has become a constant student.
Nate’s therapeutic work begins with massage therapy and is focused on a whole life perspective. Using this method allows him to find the source of your stress and discover a way to dissolve it over time.
