About Us

Touch Therapeutic Massage was created with the firm belief that "massage" is an important investment in your health...it is not an indulgence but a vital tool to help you stay healthy and balanced.

In this modern fast paced society we continously burden our body, mind and spirit with phenomenal amounts of stress, pressure and toxins but fail to provide adequate means to cope. So why are we then surprised when our bodies weaken unable to deal with the challenges, resulting in common modern ailments presenting disease and dysfunction. At Touch Therapeutic massage it is my philosophy that massage is part of the solution...allow yourself the journey towards regaining better health. Massage can be incorporated into a preventative or maintenance plan, complimentary to modern medicine and treatment.

 

 Abida Wahla, Certified Massage Therapist

My passion for health, wellness, and a firm belief in alternative therapies combined with work in health promotional activities  lead me to massage therapy over 20 years ago, originally graduating in Scotland from a two year program in 1991, and more recently I received my certification in Massage Therapy from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2009. I am Nationally Certified and licensed by the VA Board of Nursing.

As a Massage therapist, my goal is to create a comfortable healing environment by listening and tailoring each massage session to meet your specific needs, addressing troubled areas, whether they are a result of stress, chronic pain due to injury, muscle strain and tension or occupational stress. My therapeutic style incorporates techniques from modalities such as: myofascia release (connective tissue work), trigger point therapy, MET’s and deep tissue. My specializations include Deep Tissue, Swedish, Hot Stones, Prenatal and Aromatherapy.

 PLEASE NOTE : due to religious reasons and a passion for promoting women's health, I ONLY WORK WITH FEMALE CLIENTS.
