My name is Desiree Van Wicklen. When I was 20 years old I started my journey as a Massage Therapist. Baltimore School of Massage was where I received my training. At that time, it was a 2 year program. After graduation, I started my career at a Neuromuscular center in Apex, NC. In 2001, I moved to York, PA and have worked for a variety of Chiropractic offices and now I have become my own boss and brought my practice to The Massage Therapy Center on Rathton Rd, Restorative Wellness. The Center has four practitioners, all specializing in different modalities of massage. Personally, my focus after 18 years of continuing education has been to help clients relieve chronic and acute pain. My biggest disappointment when receiving a massage is leaving not feeling like the original issue that brought me there was any better. My hope is that through deep tissue work and focused trigger point therapy, we can release knots and pain that is causing you discomfort.
