Lindsey A.

Lindsey Applegate,
Licensed Bodywork and Massage Therapist

Lindsey didn’t always plan on becoming a Licensed Bodywork and Massage Therapist. For several years, she had thought of going into physical therapy but then felt that this career fit her strengths and passions in a more fine-tuned way than PT did.

After doing research, Lindsey found an excellent massage program in Charlotte, which is just over the state line from Clover, South Carolina, where she grew up. After completing the rigorous program, Lindsey took the MBLEx exam and applied for licensure.

The Path to Our Practice

Knowing she didn’t want to work in a spa, Lindsey attended a job fair that her massage school was hosting. The previous owners of the clinic were searching to hire new therapists and chiropractors. “I met the previous massage therapist there, and liked her style and philosophy of the practice, and started working with her.” Lindsey also met Dr. Ritchie.

For Lindsey, the therapeutic work she gets to do has been exactly what she’s been looking for. She finds the emphasis on structural and functional change rewarding.

In Her Spare Time

When she’s not at work, Lindsey likes playing the piano, knitting, cooking, and taking long walks.
