Ida Rose Osborne founded Athens Medical Massage during the turn of the century. Through her never-ending dedication, ingenuity and continuous labors she patiently nurtured Athens Medical Massage into the stand-alone massage business within Athens County. With a deeply caring and trained touch, Ida’s healing hands have been laid upon thousands of people over the years. She brings a smile to the face and heart of all. She is a treasure, a master of her work and a solid friend.
When Ida approached Aaron and Leila about taking over her business, she was not thinking only about the day to day aspects of a brick-and-mortar store, she was thinking about her family business and wanted the future owners to cherish the Center as she has. Leila and Aaron are proud to do so.

Katie’s goal as a massage therapist is to help others live without pain. To achieve this, she most often uses deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretching to relieve pain and tension. She finds that many of her clients’ main sources of tension (and origins of pain) are in the neck, back and hips, so these get extra attention. Katie is a grounded realist, who loves the challenge of helping people find relief from chronic pain issues and experience relaxation in their stressful lives.

We as medical practitioners have an obligation to provide a safe space for our clients and ourselves. We follow the Responsible Restart Ohio, Department of Health guidelines for Massage Therapy. Some examples (but not limited to) are:
Massage is confidential by law. Client identity, information, or conversations of any kind are held in confidence. The office door is closed during sessions. At all times the client is under sheets (and or towels) to protect privacy. Before and after treatments the Therapist leaves the room while the client prepares.
