Abby, LMT, AMTA
Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Abigail Davis or Abby (that’s with a Y)! I received my initial education in massage therapy here in Lincoln, Nebraska at the Myotherapy Institute. I stepped down from my full-time management position and unbeknownst to me that led me on a journey of self-discovery. After earning an associate degree in Massage Therapy and becoming licensed in the great state of Nebraska I went to work in a chiropractic office. Tonia (whom I met while in massage school) began recruiting me to join team SWM. By December 2016 I was convinced that Simple Wellness was where I was supposed to be, and I joined the team. During my time at Simple Wellness I have been allowed to grow and bloom as a massage therapist taking additional trainings in Craniosacral therapy, additional Deep Tissue techniques, cupping, and several trainings on medical conditions in relation to massage.
The clients I feel I relate best to are clients that come in with mental health needs, whether it be the everyday stressors, day to day anxiety, or a clinical diagnosis such as GAD, BiPolar, Depression, etc.. Due to my own personal journey of navigating life’s ups and downs with a mental health diagnosis brings a unique ability to understand and empathize with clients. One of the greatest joys I get from being a massage therapist is witnessing the healing that occurs through the connection of the therapist’s touch to the client’s skin.
Outside of the world of massage, I have been a member of Scouts BSA for nearly 10 years. During this time I have been able to share many memorable experiences with my children. Including many camping trips, hikes, and other adventures. I believe very strongly in the mission, vision, and values of the BSA and dedicate many hours as a volunteer in various leadership positions.
Every day that I am able to participate in my profession or volunteer with the BSA I feel successful.
