Gloria Baker, LMT
I started my passion for bodywork in 1989 through aromatherapy. In 1991 I was trained by a Navajo women how to feel the joints of the body for alignment. At the age of 23 my mom suggested I start doing massage. Shortly after I moved to Sedona, AZ and practiced massage while learning the different modalities. I moved to Jefferson City, MO 1998 to be closer to family. I attended Metro Business College in 1999 for Administrative Assistant and 2002 for Massage Therapy, graduating both with honors. I have been in the field of Massage Therapy for the past nine year’s full time and loving it. My continued education includes Pilates on the ball, chair massage and parties, Reiki, Lymphatic Drainage, Cranial, Deep Tissue and the joy of Young Living Oils. In 2007 it was my dream to create Therapeutic Touch Wellness Center for the enjoyment of empowered individuals to release stress caused by life in a healing comforting environment. It has taken 20 years of education and life to live my dream every day.
