Lorie Struzik, LMT

Lorie was a longtime competitive cyclist who discovered the many benefits of chiropractic and bodywork. These interests led her to begin practicing Reiki in 2009 and she is a Reiki Master. After working 20 years as an Engineer, a desire to remain in this area rather than transfer to Ohio, led to Lorie's decision to embark on a new career. Following her other life-long interest, she graduated from the Academy of Massage and Bodywork in 2014. Licensed as a massage therapist in Delaware and Pennsylvania, Lorie specializes in Therapeutic Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Deep Tissue Massage, and Integrative Muscular Movement Technique.
