Diane Cooper LMT

Massage: Perfected

Professional training and personal experiences have been the building blocks of my massage practice. Ten years of providing massage have allowed a broad understanding of my clients and their conditions. As an LMT, I draw from my extensive training in human anatomy, physiology and various massage techniques.

I have previously served as a nurses assistant and am proficient at addressing acute injuries stemming from auto accidents and chronic pain resulting from long term misalignment. In addition, I've worked with many athletes and the multitude of injuries they present. My path in the health care field has been an exciting journey, and I feel very fortunate it has led me to a holistic world of Massage Therapy.

My clients benefit from my functional approach. For example, my massage sessions typically include active and passive stretching, exercise instruction and a discussion of the importance of nutritional support. The therapeutic modalities I specialize in include deep tissue massage, pregnancy massage, lymphatic drainage, and temporomandibular joint / TMJ techniques.

As a practitioner my strength is listening to the client. My skill as a massage therapist lies in intuitive ability to focus much needed attention on problem areas while addressing the body as a whole. My style is deep yet gentle enough to promote relaxation while getting to the root of chronic pain with highly effective healing results. My love of the outdoors and personal experience as a mom, marathon runner, and backpacker allow me to relate to clients at all levels of fitness and athletic ability.

Did you know? If you've recently been in a car accident, your PIP insurance will cover chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy for up to a year. It's very important to not let a fixable situation linger in the case of even minor trauma to the spine, so be sure to get the treatment you need!

"Diane is an outstanding masseuse. She provides an excellent deep tissue massage and is wonderful at finding and relaxing tight muscles, especially in my back. She is also incredibly skilled at massage for TMJ related pain and helping to resolve it."

Diane's a wonder...As always this woman is amazing in what she does and how she does it. Very, very strong and knows how to make a grown man cry :)

After too much airplane travel Diane is the solution...Diane is terrific for getting those exceptionally tight neck, shoulder, and leg knots to release, and I truly needed her help after six consecutive weeks of flying all over the world, sitting on airplanes, and spending too much time sitting in meetings. She's the best!

Diane Cooper is amazing! She fit us in for the best massages ever at very short notice. We were both sore after our annual flag football 'Turkey Bowl' tried to book massages late Friday for early Saturday. A friend referred us to Westlake Massage, I checked the website, but was only able to book one 1.5 hr massage. Diane suggested we split the time & both get 45 min massages. Her skill, intuitiveness & really cool 'moving cupping' machine are pure magic!

Diane was fabulous! She patiently listened to my symptoms and created a variety of massages to work on my incredibly sore muscles in my back. I have slept well and feel healthier after that massage. I plan to return!
