Dana M. Brandt-Tinker, Owner and sole operator of Nourishing Massage, is a Licensed Massage Therapist specialized in Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, and Hot Stone Massage. She is currently pursuing training in Young Living’s Raindrop Technique, and would like to get training in Active Myofascial Release Therapy.

After receiving over 1,000 hours of education and hands-on training, she graduated from Cuyahoga Community College, Eastern Campus in May 2011 and received her license from the State Medical Board of Ohio in July 2011. Her dream of owning her own business became a reality shortly after receiving her license, when the doors of Nourishing Massage officially opened in August 2011.

With her background as a child daycare teacher, caring for adults with MR/DD, and over seven years of experience as a State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) for hospice, she has developed a passionate commitment to the well-being of her clients.

Starting in 2009, Dana also became interested in the Paleo nutritional lifestyle, as part of her continued pursuit to achieve total wellness: mind, body and spirit. Through research, she has also investigated FODMAP dietary restriction, gastrointestinal function and repair, and the anti-inflammatory food sensitivity program LEAP MRT.

She is in the process of expanding Nourishing Massage by formulating her own non-toxic skin care line called Nourish, which includes the highest quality food sources along with therapeutic grade essential oils. She also plans to offer personal Paleo guidance to her clients in the future.

“I am eager to develop a client-centered treatment plan that will lead you to long-term wellness.”
