Meet Tim Battles

Tim Battles Mansfield Chiropractic

What prompted you to study massage therapy in the first place?

Originally, I went to see a massage therapist to help me with my lower back pain. I went 2 times and after only 2 visits I started to feel better. I was very impressed, and I asked her what it took to become a massage therapist. From that point I never looked back. I wanted to help people feel better, so I decided to go back to school and study massage therapy.

What do you like best about being a massage therapist?

I like the idea of being able to help people with their pain. The fact that I can help someone relax from their busy life and enjoy peaceful rest makes me feel like I am making a difference.

What was your favorite moment/success story involving massage therapy?

I remember when I was interning at school that a lady came in to see me because she could not raise her arm to dress herself. After one massage with me she could raise her arm higher. She was so impressed that she continued to come to me throughout my entire internship. I was able to get her shoulder full pain free range of motion.

How long have you been a massage therapist?

I’ve been a licensed massage therapist for 3.5 years.
