Terry Bauer, Nationally Certied in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB), has created a special atmosphere for her clients at “A Touch of Country Massage Therapy” located at 2811 10th Street in Great Bend.
A 2006 graduate of Heritage College in Kansas City, Mo., with an Associate’s Degree in Therapeutic Massage, Terry has spent the past few years learning and gaining more experience in her trade. She has worked in a spa setting and the last four years attained additional knowledge working in a chiropractic ofce in Overland Park.
Terry, a former Pawnee County resident, left her longtime position as Pawnee County Appraiser to pursue her dream of helping others in 2005. She opened her new massage therapy business in Great Bend recently to provide that healing help to her hometown area.
“I spent the last few years away, ne tuning my skills, so that I could return to the area and familiarize the local community with the benets of massage,” she said. “A few of those benets are relief of tension and relaxation of muscles, decreased anxiety and depression and enhanced sleep and immunity support.”
Her current massage modalities include Swedish, deep, hot stone, prenatal, reexology and scalp massage, with a little energy work included.
As clients request different types of massage, she plans on expanding her services. She is also available to come to bridal and baby showers and birthday parties.
At this time, Terry is taking appointments by phone, text, email and Facebook messaging.
Her Facebook page is “A Touch of County Massage Therapy.” When visiting the page, proceed to the “about” section. Pricing and referral information, including phone number and email address, are listed there. Terry also lists her “specials” of the month on her page.
When she gets a better sense of the community’s needs, business hours will be established; but for now, Terry is trying to be available for massage until 9 p.m., seven days a week.
She is also setting up her massage chair at Rozel’s city-wide celebration on Saturday, Aug. 10.
Terry is joining several family members who are a part of the Great Bend business community. Her daughter, Julie Schooler, owns and operates Razor’s Edge. Nephew, Trent Bauer, is an independent contractor at Satellite Pros and nephew, Chase Bauer, owns and operates Bauer Computers.
