Chelsea Brown has been working as a licensed massage therapist since June 2008 and has been a member of the Olson team since March 2012. Her interest in massage therapy began in high school when she ave massages to fellow dancers during her summers at ballet dance intensives. Since dance is a passion of hers, she went on to graduate with a bachelor’s in Dance Performance and Choreography from Hope College. Following graduation she spent a year auditioning and taking dance classes in Chicago. She always told herself that if dancing professionally didn’t work out then she would go to massage therapy school. So after the year of auditioning she enrolled at The Wellness and Massage Training Institute and received her certification in February 2008. Three months later she became nationally certified and licensed. As well as working for chiropractors, Chelsea has also provided chair massages for participants in various activities, including a mother-daughter retreat in Wisconsin, the KBMF Foundation 5K run, and other events sponsored by Pure Health powered by Olson Chiropractic. She specializes in Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and sports massage. To her, being a massage therapist is not just helping people feel better, it is healing, caring, and nurturing people back to an overall feeling of health and wellbeing.
