Welcome Olivia Carter to Bella Vista

Olivia Carter, LMT

MSG013507

I am a 2019 graduate of Integrative Bodywork School of Massage Therapy and licensed by the Pennsylvania Board of Massage Therapy. I have always loved helping people and had an interest in holistic remedies so when I made the decision to pursue a career in massage therapy, I knew I had found my calling.

I have always been a hands on learner with a keen attention to detail. My instructors complimented me for my strong intuition, palpating skills and natural touch. Massage therapy is about helping your clients tune into their mind, body and spirit.

During my time at Integrative Bodywork, I had the opportunity to work on Penn State athletes as well as in a student massage clinic where I had the chance to experience clients of all ages, health and pain restrictions. The diversity of clientele is a true testament that everyone can benefit from massage. As therapists, we each have a unique style and gift to offer, the key is finding someone who helps you tune into your wellness goals.

I am eager to expand my knowledge in the ever growing field of massage therapy. To say that I am thrilled to be taking the next step of my new career with Bella Vista Massage and Spa would be an understatement. Amber is someone that I have considered to be a mentor from the very beginning of my massage therapy journey, I will be soaking in all the experience and knowledge that she is eager to share with me.

My goal is to introduce new clients to the many health benefits that massage therapy has to offer, provide a safe space where clients feel comfortable and build a relationship based on wellness with my future clients. all while providing the best skills I have to offer; tailored individually to your massage goals.

Amber's Reflection 

September of 2020 begins my 19th year of Massage Therapy. Looking back over the years, I am incredibly thankful for where this journey has taken me and the many influential people who have made me the Therapist I am today! Indulge me the walk through memory lane.

-Mr. and Mrs. Wolin, Sharon Byler and Aaron Pavlechko of The Central PA School of Massage for their teachings and encouragement, for nurturing my calling to be a Massage Therapist.

-Susan McGoldrick, LMT. Hand Chiropractic in Fort Collins Colorado for taking me under her wing, guiding me and molding me with her unique style, I am forever grateful and still rely on these techniques to enhance my clients wellness.

-Dr. Klingensmith for giving me the best start anyone could ask for. 10 years of skill building and a lasting friendship... the knowledge I gained from his years of experience is priceless. I would not be where I am today if it was not for this wonderful opportunity!!

-Jennifer Tucker, my Herbalist mentor who has shared her love of foraging walks through nature collecting herbs, guiding me to create the nourishing oils I use while planting the seeds of herbalism in my life. My healthy ways will always thank her for this.

-Shanti Dechen, my Aromatherapy guru. Shanti has guided my senses with Essential Oils. This blend of aromatic teachings and friendship has awakened a higher level of healing, a synergy at my fingertips.

-Cathy Amenta, LMT. Amenta Massage of Colorado to whom I am forever grateful for the mountain energy we share!! She has the most amazing style of Massage I have ever experienced... a true balance; mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually which made me see clearly the value of mind/body connection and forever transformed my vision. It would be an honor to reach her level of experience as a Bodyworker... she is my mentor, my friend and inspiration.

I am eternally grateful for each one of these amazing people who have crossed my path, who have touched my soul and made an impact on my vision and connection to Massage Therapy. They say that Massage touches lives... it has touched mine and flows through me, a gift I love sharing.

Although we are told to be mindful of living in the moment, we always seem to be seeking the next step in our path. As I approach a 20 year milestone; I begin to wonder, where do I go from here, how can I continue to touch the lives of my Family of clients who have so generously chosen me to be part of their wellness... I’ve been told age has something to do with this, as most of my life lessons come from the wise words shared from your side of the table. I once read that “reflection is the cornerstone of growth.” You know me well enough to know that this quote touched my heart and left me inspired. I dug deep and tuned into my purpose. My Herbal mentor Jennifer once shared with me following one of our foraging walks that it made her so happy to “plant the seed” of knowledge, watch it grow and be shared. Teachable moments, full circle... plant the seed.

There is beauty in relationships that are formed when you reach this stage of a career, we have seen all aspects of each other’s lives blossom before our eyes. I feel honored to be part of your world. This connection has brought me to a new path along my journey, the next step...

Olivia Carter, a daughter of one of my dearest clients couldn’t wait to share that she had enrolled in Massage school. Her journey was beginning, she was filled with such excitement and positive energy. We spent some time sharing our experiences from clinic, on course material, the many modalities of Massage and tuning into her gift as a Massage Therapist. These conversations sparked a revival of my own passion and purpose, why I love being a Massage Therapist.

Upon her completion of the program in November, Olivia told me she hoped to gain more experience locally before chasing her dream of heading to Colorado... go girl go I told her, then it all made sense to me, pay it forward...

Olivia Carter, LMT has chosen to share my space and begin seeing clients here at Bella Vista Massage and Spa.

We believe it’s a beautiful opportunity to begin her career. Let’s watch her grow...
