Tichelle Scott, Massage Therapist
Tichelle is a Licensed Massage Therapist, offering services from our Minnetonka Clinic. She is a 2015 graduate of the massage therapy program at the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis.
She first developed an interest for massage at a young age by simply giving her mom massages at home to help her relax after a long day of work and being a single mom of three daughters. When it came time for Tichelle to choose her educational path, she chose massage therapy and found her passion. She continues to highly value the importance of self-care in all of its forms.
Her general approach to a massage session, after identifying the areas needing most attention, is to start by warming up the area and gradually increase pressure as the muscles relax and allow her to keep moving. “My goal is to leave the client feeling all the benefits of a deep tissue massage while still being very relaxed and in less discomfort than when we started.”
Tichelle offers deep tissue, trigger point release, Swedish massage, prenatal, sports massage, foot reflexology. She loves working specifically on neck/shoulder pain, headaches, piriformis/leg pain, gutes and hands/feet. Clients can expect a calming touch with good intuition to figure out what techniques would best suit what they’re seeking to address that day.
At SuNu, she’s really enjoyed working more with prenatal clients and helping them to find relief and experience real-time changes in their bodies. Tichelle uses intuition, body knowledge, awareness and gentle connection to create a safe, calming and receptive massage experience for everyone she works with. “I like to think of myself as a “body listener” – I am able to learn a lot from the client’s body without having too much chatter or verbal storytelling getting in the way of what the body actually needs.”
When Tichelle isn’t working at SuNu, you may find her listening to books on audible, especially magic/fantasy thrillers, Greek/Norse mythology genres. She also loves a relaxing self-spa day or time at home with her dog.
